The Mystery of Godliness

1 Timothy 3:14-16 We love to sing Christmas songs and carols because they include so much truth about the incarnation of Jesus. Pastor Doug Link shows us a hymn about Christ found in 1 Timothy that proclaims important truths about Jesus.

For God So Loved the World

John 3:16 One of the most popular verses on the planet to both believers and unbelievers, John 3:16 is referenced when the discussion is about salvation. In this Christmas Eve message, Pastor Rod Bunton breaks it down and shows us that it also encapsulates the entire Christmas story in one verse.

Peace on Earth

Luke 2:8-14 We see it often this time of year in Christmas cards, song lyrics, and our scripture readings: “Peace on Earth, good will toward men,” but what does that mean? Pastor Rod Bunton explores the true meaning of peace — that if we seek peace between each other here on the world in which we live, it starts with peace between God and man.

You Can’t Separate the Resurrection from the Gospel

1 Corinthians 15:29-44 Paul continues to unravel the mysteries that the Corinthian church were struggling with regarding the physical resurrection of the body after death. Pastor Rod Bunton explains three more arguments why the resurrection cannot be separated from the Gospel.

The Order of Resurrection

1 Corinthians 15:20-26 Oftentimes, Christians are confused about the details related to the resurrection of believers and Paul addressed this in his letter. Pastor Rod Bunton explains the three things that all Christians will experience and how the timing of the bodily resurrection will take place.

The Resurrection of the Dead

1 Corinthians 15:12-19 Having just provided evidence of the bodily resurrection of Christ, Paul poses this question: “How can some of you say that there is no resurrection of the dead?” Pastor Rod Bunton looks at the implications of denying the bodily resurrection and ends with the good news: Christ has been raised from the dead and we will be, too!

The Eyewitnesses of the Resurrection of Christ

1 Corinthians 15:5-11 Continuing his discourse on the importance of the resurrection of Christ, Paul turned to the evidence supporting the event. Pastor Rod Bunton reviews the list of eyewitnesses of the literal, bodily resurrection of Jesus — all of whom became the best equipped preachers of the Gospel.

The Importance of the Resurrection of Christ

1 Corinthians 15:1-4 Paul turned to the Gospel in Chapter 15 and started by establishing the elements of it that matter. Pastor Rod Bunton reviews these details and reminds us that if Christ did not rise from the dead, our faith is worthless.

Scriptures are the Authority

1 Corinthians 14:33b-40 In keeping with his focus on orderly worship, Paul addressed an issue with women speaking in the church service. Pastor Rod Bunton explores this highly controversial topic, particularly in our modern culture, and reminds us that the only true authority is the word of God and it commands the roles that we take in worship and in our daily lives.

Mature Understanding of Tongues

1 Corinthians 14:20-33 One of the problems affecting the Corinthian church was chaos during worship. Pastor Rod Bunton explains that Paul addressed this as a maturity issue regarding both tongues and the worship service in general.

Intelligibility of the Gift of Tongues

1 Corinthians 14:1-19 Paul continues to correct the behavior of the Corinthian church and turns to the gift of tongues which was being misused. Pastor Rod Bunton gives us a straightforward understanding about this issue that centers on the intelligibility of the one speaking in tongues.
