1. the COMING of the new heavens & the new earth
2. the CITIZENS of the new heavens & the new earth
3. the CITY of the new heavens & the new earth

5. the CLIMATE/CULTURE of the new heavens & the new earth
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff preaches the glory of God's Word from Psalm 51 as David repents before the Lord after he committed adultery with Bathsheba. This psalm provides GOD'S TEMPLATE FOR US FOR REPENTANCE...
1. See your sin
2. Hate your sin
3. Confess your sin
4. Slay your sin
5. Forsake your sin
6. Replace your sin
Pastor Geoff preaches on the brevity of life and the soon-coming death of all people. He calls all the passers by to "consider their latter end" as he preaches on the streets of St Louis, MO.
Pastor Geoff preaches Job 13:11 -- do you not fear the awesome majesty of God? And he calls men and women on the streets of St Louis, MO to turn from sin and to fear God and trust Christ alone for salvation from divine wrath. Come to this Savior and live!
"Leadership Development: Questions for Potential Elders"
Do you have the DESIRE and ASPIRATION to the office of overseer and the work of ministry?
Do you believe your marriage is an “exemplary” marriage, though not perfect but an example for others to see and emulate?
Do you manage your own household well keeping your children in order? Do you teach them truth? Do you protect them from danger (spiritually)? Do you lead in family worship?
Are you sexually pure? Are you truly a “one-woman man” and do you abstain from all porn and fornication (in every form)?
Where do you need to grow in your *character* as a man of God (see, e.g., 1 Tim 3:3-6)?
Do you believe that you are doing the work of an elder currently? Are you teaching truth? Are you protecting from error? Are you ministering to the souls of people? Are you maturing in the faith?
Do you agree fully with the CFBC What We Teach statement? If not, where do you disagree?
Are you willing to make the time to prioritize elder meetings (twice a month on Sunday mornings) and shepherding needs as they arise, to the best of your ability?
"When the Unexpected Invades, Respond Like Jehoshaphat!"
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff continues the "Summer in
the Psalms" series and proclaims that David teaches
us and models how to trust God WHILE going through
great hardships in life (even with his own son
Absalom pursuing him!):
1. TELL God
2. TRUST God
3. TRIUMPH in God
"The Written Word is God-Breathed & Wholly Sufficient for You!"
Pastor Geoff preaches on the historical psalm -- Psalm 106 -- and shows the fickleness, the failures, and the great sinfulness of Israel. Yet God Almighty proves to be so faithful and so true to His covenental love! Rejoice!
"God Rebukes Sin & Jehoshaphat Resolves to Obey God's Law"
In this sermon, we see how God sent a prophet to rebuke Jehoshaphat for his wicked alliance with Ahab and then Jehoshaphat begins reforms in the land and appoints judges in the land to do justice and righteousness.
"2 Essentials for Every Pastor: Private Prayer & Relentless Preaching"
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff walks through the 'dark night of the soul' as Heman expresses a prayer to God in Psalm 88. What can we learn about depression? About anguish? How can we endure? How can we persevere? Even when there's no light in sight?
Keep trusting! Keep relying on God!
"Biblical Clarity on the 'Gay-Christian' Profession"
Pastor Geoff works through 1 Corinthians 6 and provides a 3-point outline to this very important text that clearly and specifically addresses the topic of homosexuality and, so called, gay-christians.
The Sobering Plea to Not Be Deceived By Charlatans (9a)
The Sinful Patterns That Keep You Out Of Heaven (9-10)
The Sure Promises of Christ’s Blood & the Power of the Spirit’s Regeneration (11)
"See God's Glory Revealed: in the Skies, the Scriptures & the Son!"
In this podcast we study this statement: ELDERS ARE DISQUALIFIED IF THEY LEGITIMIZE ‘GAY-CHRISTIANS’ AND HOMOSEXUALITY
Titus 1.8 — elders are qualified if they are “loving what is good”
What does that mean?
What is good? GOD is the highest good
What is good? TRUTH is the revelation of good
What is good? CHRIST is the quintessential good
What is good? the LOVE OF CHRIST and the GOSPEL OF CHRIST is good
what is good? TO HATE EVIL and PURSUE RIGHTEOUSNESS IS GOOD.
"Why We Must Preach Truth Regarding Eternal Danger of Homosexuality & Gay-Christians"
WHY WE MUST PREACH WHAT *GOD* SAYS REGARDING THE SIN & ETERNAL DANGER OF THE SIN OF HOMOSEXUALITY & SAME-SEX ATTRACTION:
We must preach the truth for the following reasons...
Because GOD HAS SPOKEN
Because HELL IS HOT
Because SALVATION IS AVAILABLE
Because REGENERATION IS SUPERNATURAL
Because SINNERS NEED TRUTH
Because HOLINESS IS NECESSARY
Because DECEPTION IS RAMPANT
Because PLEASING GOD IS PRIORITY
