Filled: Living the Spirit-Filled Life :: The Qualities of a Spirit-Filled Paul
The book of The Acts of the Apostles opened with Peter in the forefront of our reading, now, at the end of the book, Paul is the main player. All through the passages that are devoted to Paul, we have seen certain qualities about him that endeared him to those he met - or, frankly, made them want to stone him. Now he is on his last journey - to Rome - and he is giving advice to those that are seeing him off on his voyage. In his talk, he reveals the qualities that demonstrate a person's Spirit-Filled life. Pastor Sam has listed these five qualities for us to consider in our own lives.

    Filled: Living the Spirit-Filled Life :: Paul in Ephesus

    Acts 19 brings us to Ephesus, a steamy, hot-bed of paganism in the worship of Artemis. In this chapter, Pastor Sam shows us people who were attempting to live a righteous life without the help of the Holy Spirit. As Sam discusses the three groups of people found in this chapter, we may want to ask ourselves: Do I have the Holy Spirit living in me? I believe in God, but why do I feel an emptiness inside me? Perhaps you need the refreshing that only the Holy Spirit can provide when he enters and fills that empty space within you.

           What conversations you would have if Paul rented a room in your house? Travel with Pastor Carolyn to ancient Corinth and watch as he mentors three new followers of Jesus.  Priscilla and Aquila opened their house to Paul.  They model the husband-wife team, working together for the Kingdom, because they were two who were one in the Lord.  Apollos, a disciple of John the Baptist,  joins them when he finds out there is more to the story. Hear what Carolyn has to say about these four people, living the Spirit-filled life to the honor and the glory of the Lord. 
           An added treat in today's service is a guest Foursquare pastor from Nigeria, the mother of a member of our congregation. She addresses the assembly at the very beginning of the service and offers a prayer. We hope you'll enjoy the service. 
           God bless!

    Filled: Living the Spirit-Filled Life :: On the Road with Paul and Silas
    Pastor Sam takes us on the road, in Acts 17, with Paul and Silas as they journey through Macedonia, heading toward Athens. As we read about the victories and defeats of the two travelers, we also discover how Paul approaches each of the cultures and what his attitude is toward them. Sam shows us how Paul identified with each audience and how he was able to discern how to deliver his message of Jesus Christ in terms they could understand. Most importantly, the lesson of listening to the Holy Spirit is so important, because He tells us not only what to say, but also what not to say.
    Enjoy this week's message.

    Filled: Living the Spirit-Filled Life :: Making Decisions In the Kingdom
    One of the joys of attending a weekly church service is that the sermon often introduces us to ideas and concepts that we can easily miss when studying the word of God on our own.  This sermon does just that and introduces us to decision making in the kingdom. This week, Pastor Lennae takes a look at the situations in Acts 16 and shows us how the decisions the Apostles made were in-step with decisions that Jesus made during his walk on Earth. Please enjoy this wonderful message by Pastor Lennae.

    The early church was faced with many of the same problems we face today. In this week's sermon, Pastor Sam reveals one of those problems, legalism, and shows how the Apostles dealt with it. The issues are essentially: "What makes a person eligible to be a Christian?" and "What kind of hoops does one need to jump through to be accepted as a Christian?". In the early days of Christianity, with the influx of Gentile believers, these were crucial questions that needed to be answered, especially important to obeying Jesus' command to "make disciples of all nations".  Enjoy and God Bless!

    An Easter Sunday filled with not only the Spirit, but also with joy and celebration in full measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over! A family dedicated a child to the Lord; there were several baptisms conducted; Holy Communion was celebrated; and the songs by our talented worship team were offered in praise. We regret that we are unable to bring all this to you in this recording, but in his sermon, Pastor Sam will be referring to the happenings in today's service. Please enjoy this wonderful message from Sam and Happy Easter!

    Filled: Living the Spirit-Filled Life :: Understanding God’s Call
    In Acts 8, we quickly discover that the early Christians were living under some pretty extreme circumstances and pressures. In Acts 7, Stephen was stoned for his faith and for testifying of the Savior, Jesus Christ. That event marked the beginning of extreme persecution, prompting many Christians to flee Jerusalem. Yet, in the midst of this chaos and uncertainty, they accomplished extraordinary works. Join Pastor Sam as he shows us that they were people who knew who they were and what their job was and they pressed through dangerous times to accomplish their calling. We see, here, that God uses ordinary people to accomplish extraordinary works - even today. All of this is made possible through living a Spirit-Filled Life.
