Sermon: Every Spiritual Blessing (Ephesians 1:3).
You may have heard this saying "someone is waiting for their blessing." When it is said, it usually has something to do with a material gain or worldly manifestation of a blessing. But, when Paul speaks of a blessing in Ephesians, his mind is far from a worldly gain. Paul is speaking of a spiritual blessing that has already been given to all those who are true believers of Jesus Christ. Paul is speaking of a blessing in the heavenly places. These are the blessings we learn about in this morning's sermon by Pastor Robb. Come a hear how we can and should praise God for His spiritual blessings.
Sermon: To the Faithful Saints of Christ: An Introduction to Ephesians (Ephesians 1:1-2).
Someone said of Ephesians that if we "carefully, reverently, and prayerfully consider this book, it will change our lives. It is not so much a question of what we will do with the epistle, but what it will do with us." The book of Ephesians is considered by some the best of the Pauline epistles. This prison epistle was given so the church of Christ could function as God intended and not be weakened by the spiritual battles. As Pastor Robb begins his sermon series on Ephesians, please enjoy the introduction to the book and Christianity defined.

Sermon: Is the Bible Woke?: The Church's Mission in the World, Part 6. (Selected Scripture).
How is the church to function when faced with the issue of social justice? Is the church to bend to the will of the world? How is the church to respond? We can search the Bible for answers, but many churches today are misinterpreting certain passages to fit their ideology and in doing so, water-down the gospel to fit their theologically unsound doctrine. As we continue to come against the challenges of social justice and inaccurate doctrine, we need to be prepared to stand on the truth of God's Word. As Pastor Robb, concludes his sermon series on social justice, please hear what Jesus says is the mission of the church.
