May God grant forgiveness & grace to great sinners to magnify His greater grace!
Pastor Geoff preaches Psalm 2 on the Sunday prior to the election (2016) and shows how we must have an exalted & grand view of Jesus Christ, the King. He deserves worship.

"Right Thinking About God: The Supreme, Holy Judge!"
Pastor Geoff preaches Psalm 147 at the CFBC prayer meeting to prepare the flock to meet with God in prayer. This psalm focuses the hearts of the readers on God.

Praise God for His WORDS

Listen to this psalm expounded & be a doer of the Word as well as a hearer!
