How's Your Faith? (1 Thessalonians 3:1-5)

November 03, 2013

Pastor Rich Chapman   Length: 39:35 (36.4 MB)

Three things common to all Christians are that we need help and encouragement in our faith, we face trials, and we are in battle. The enemy wants us to trust in ourselves, but God is faithful and will not let us be tempted beyond what we can bear.

Can You Feel the Love? (1 Thessalonians 2:17-20)

October 27, 2013

Pastor Rich Chapman   Length: 34:03 (31.3 MB)

Face-to-face fellowship is very important, but Satan wants to keep us from gathering together, from growing, and from learning. We can take heart in knowing that Satan does not win in the end, even as we spend time with other Christians in the present.

You Should Be Willing to Share (Jeremiah 1:4,5)

October 20, 2013

Pastor Fidel Gomez   Length: 49:36 (45.6 MB)

Christians are supposed to be previews of heaven. God sends us like an envelope in which He has placed His message. Sharing the gospel is simply telling others what you know and sharing that hopeful message.

Suffering Persecutions (1 Thessalonians 2:14-16)

October 13, 2013

Pastor Rich Chapman   Length: 40:24 (37.1 MB)

Christian suffering and persecution are realities today. We should be aware of the plight of God's people throughout the world and pray for both them and their tormentors. The price of following Jesus is high--even your very life.

Reflections on the life and ministry of Chuck Smith (Matthew 25:21)

October 06, 2013

Pastor Rich Chapman   Length: 40:12 (37 MB)

Pastor Chuck Smith exemplified the good and faithful servant. He was a risk taker with men who "simply taught the Word simply." We are reminded that if we ant to hear, "Well Done" we must first do something!

The Word of God -- Part II (1 Thessalonians 2:13)

September 29, 2013

Pastor Rich Chapman   Length: 47:49 (43.9 MB)

Know it, believe it, and obey it. We must understand how powerful the word of God is. It changes the lives of even of the most hardened criminals and it is able to help us in our times of greatest need. By loving the author, we can love the Word.

1 Thessalonians 2:13

September 22, 2013

Pastor Rich Chapman   Length: 42:11 (38.8 MB)

We cannot believe what we do not know. Nor can we live any higher than our beliefs. It is important then to hear the word, receive it by taking it into our spirit, and accept it as the word of God.

Like Mom and Like Dad (1 Thessalonians 2:6b-12)

September 15, 2013

Pastor Rich Chapman   Length: 42:12 (38.8 MB)

As we go about the business of doing the work God has called us to do, let us remember to show love to others (like Mom) and to encourage, comfort and urge them in their present situation (like Dad).

Why Do We Do What We Do? (1 Thessalonians 2:1-6a)

September 08, 2013

Pastor Rich Chapman   Length: 39:20 (36.2 MB)

The temptation is to not say anything to anyone about our faith, so why should we? The apostle Paul dared to tell the truth of Jesus despite strong opposition. We should also share the Gospel because God has commanded us and it pleases Him.

1 Thessalonians 1:9,10

September 01, 2013

Pastor Rich Chapman   Length: 38:58 (35.8 MB)

Is anything more important to you than God? Success? Money? Beauty? If so, that thing is an idol. Christians often serve the created things rather than the creator. We must turn from idols, serve God, and wait for His Son.
