In the Kingdom There is No Tent

“With the Kingdom of Heaven in our hearts and minds, Church becomes a training ground instead of a baby sitting club. Church becomes a place where we seek to feed the world with our 5 loaves and 2 fishes, instead of a place of potlucks and  pizza parties.” (Pastor Les)   This morning we are going to take a look at an Old Testament scripture about God’s presence, about Heaven Coming to Earth to visit with Moses, and my desire…

The Kingdom of Heaven is for Today

“There is a difference between being born again and seeing the kingdom of God” (Pastor Les) The Kingdom of heaven is for today.  The Kingdom of God is not an addition to the Church but the reason that the church even exists.  Without the Kingdom of God advancing the church is dying.  Without the Kingdom of God being made manifest in and thru us, people are engaging in a form of Godliness without any power for being transformed and living…

The Completeness of Salvation

“Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be (sozo) saved.” (Acts 4:12)  The Greek word SOZO means “To be Saved” or “rescued”.  But the imagery gets even clearer when we realize that it is an action word, a verb’ that shows how we are rescued from the enemy of our soul, removed out from under Satan’s power AND restored into the Family of God, placed…

A Culture of Joy

 God says, “I made you awesome and unique, to bring glory to My name!” and then we add in the fine print “And you will be miserable and unhappy and won’t have any fun at all”. (Pastor Les) Whenever joy is brought up really good Christians often go on a rant about how God doesn’t care about us being happy or about having fun.  It is almost as if any conversation exploring joy must be shut down before someone smiles…

Walking with The Cross

“When we follow our compassion into the crowds, we will find Jesus there, doing amazing things thru us” (Pastor Les) I spent a 5-days in Costa Rica last week with my friend and Panamanian missionary Jim Sim.  Each year, for years, we have set aside some days for prayer.  I flew to Costa Rica and Jim travelled via bus from Boquete, Panama. The last few years God has been healing me in the area of my emotions. By healing I…

Who Should You Be Like?

All Christians know that they should be like Jesus.  From Mark 10 and Matthew 18 we discover that Jesus tells us to be like children.  In this message we take a look at… How the Disciples wanted the Children to become like adults but Jesus wanted the adults to be like Children. How we wrongly assume that we are being transformed into better versions of ourselves.  We are not. 4 ways we can be like little children. Pastor Les ends…

The Breath of God

Listen in and be inspired to consider the Holy Spirit as an entity that you will want to know, in the very same way you desire to know Jesus as Savior and God as Father.  Les may challenge you to think about and you may find yourself asking to experience more often the Breath of God.

Faith, Fear, and Healing

Fear is not that far away from faith.  We mistakenly think the two are polar opposites yet they may go hand in hand, with fear leading the way to faith.  Listen in as Les makes the case for more vulnerability leading to an increase in faith.
