The Holy Spirit: His Conferred Authority
After the healing of the lame man in Acts 3 and the message of salvation Peter preaches to the crowd, the religious leaders are not happy. They cannot deny a miracle has taken place, yet they don't want to acknowledge Jesus Christ, whom they crucified, had anything to do with it. They take Peter and John into custody in an effort to intimate them into silence. Following the verbal exchange between the two apostles and the religious elite an interesting observation is recorded by Luke. He writes in Acts 4:13, "Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated and untrained men, they marveled. And they realized that they had been with Jesus."  The Holy Spirit conferred upon Peter and John a supernatural boldness and authority to stand up and present the truth of Christ to the educated elite in spite of any fear or sense of inferiority.

    The Holy Spirit: His Everyday Influence
    In Acts 3:1-10, we learn of the Holy Spirit's influence in the lives of believers as they go about their daily routines. He desires to use us right where we are: home, office, school, park, even at the store.  People all around us are in need of Jesus and opportunities are available everyday to be His hands, feet, voice if we will be sensitive to the Holy Spirit's leading and direction.

    The Holy Spirit: His Visible Fingerprints
    Every church saturated and led by the Spirit will have the Holy Spirit’s fingerprints clearly visible upon it. The love of God’s word, love of each other, and a desire to pray with and for one another.

    The Holy Spirit: His Work For God’s Glory
    As we conclude Acts chapter two, we pick up with Simon Peter explaining to the crowd the events they had witnessed. The people had all heard the 120 "declare the wonderful works of God" in each of their own languages and could not understand how it was possible. In fact, some suggested they must be drunk. In this message, we look at how Peter pointed the crowd to Jesus after the supernatural manifestation they witnessed, which resulted in thousands being saved.

    The Holy Spirit: Recognizing Our Need of Him
    This is the first message from our new series, "The Holy Spirit."  We dive into Acts 1:1-14 and discover Jesus' need of the Holy Spirit in His own life and ministry. Jesus did not start His public ministry until He was baptized and the Holy Spirit descended upon Him like a dove.  It was then that He was tested in the wilderness and afterwards performed His first miracle.  We must recognize as children of God, as Jesus needed the Holy Spirit, we need Him too as a vital part of our lives.

    Beyond The Natural
    Series: general
     1 Kings 19 and Acts chapter 12 both show us what is seen in the natural is not always the reality of the supernatural. God can intervene supernaturally in the natural to accomplish His purpose and to save His people.

    Foolishness
    Series: general
    The Apostle Paul writes in 1 Corinthians 1:18, "For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God."  In this message, we explore why the message of Christ crucified is foolishness to the world.

    The Grace of Giving Your Substance Part 1
    Our substance is everything God has given us. It's our finances, but it is also our time and talents. Just like the Corinthians, we can learn the principles of giving our substance from the Macedonians. Giving is sacrificial, spontaneous, selfless, spiritual, and sincere.
