In this sermon, Pastor Geoff provides 7 declarations of the only saving gospel from Titus 3:4-7. What a glorious & profoundly beautiful text to gaze upon!
This text is full of theology, doctrine, hope, joy, security, and GOD.
The theme and central clause is in v.5 -- "He saved us." May this resonate in our hearts to the glory of God that ALL our salvation is fully, entirely, completely and eternally DUE to the sovereign mercy and work of GOD -- and God alone!
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff preaches Titus 3.3 and shows the doctrine of radical -- pervasive -- depravity. This is who we "ONCE" were BEFORE God saved us. We are to remember this so that it increases our awe, wonder, and joy in the glory of Grace in the Gospel!
"Why I Preach Expositionally: For the Preparation for Eternity!"
Pastor Geoff preaches Ephesians 3.20 which is Paul's doxology culminating the first three chapters on the great glory of God in saving sinners & uniting them to Christ. This text also prepares us for Ephesians 4-6 as we live out the exhortations that God calls us to.

In this sermon, Pastor Geoff proclaims the Word from Joshua 22 when the 2 1/2 tribes return home and construct an altar. The other tribes in the Promised Land see it and rise up with great zeal to wage war against the seemingly-apostate tribes.
What happens? How is civil war averted? What can we learn? How do we see the good and the bad lessons to learn from?
Pastor Geoff guest preaches at New Community Church in St Louis, Missouri and proclaims the faithfulness of God from the Word of God so that we may learn how to preserve unity among the people of God.
We commend the zeal of the Israelite tribes for the purity and holiness of God.
But we also learn lessons about preserving and cultivating unity. 4 practical lessons:
1. Prioritize obedience
2. Shun accusations
3. Respond patiently
4. Continue harmoniously
"Praying for the Church: Requesting Divine Strength in the Inner Man!"
In this message, Pastor Geoff heralds the first part of Paul's prayer in Ephesians 3 -- this prayer is a transitional hinge reflecting on all the glorious Truth from chapters 1-3 and it also prepares the believers for the exhortations and commands in chapters 4-6. This prayer shows us:
1. his posture -- kneeling
2. his position -- as a son coming before the Father
3. his petitions
In the petitions, there are 3 primary requests Paul prays for in this prayer to the Father on behalf of the Ephesians...
1. Paul wants them to be STRENGTHENED WITH GOD'S POWER (16-17a)
2. Paul wants them to be ASTONISHED BY CHRIST'S LOVE (17b-19a)
3. Paul wants them to be FILLED WITH GOD'S FULLNESS (19b)
"Precision in Proclamation: A Roundtable Chat With Open Air Preachers"
In this roundtable discussion, 5 men gather together to discuss PRECISION IN OUR PROCLAMATION -- how can we be precise in our theology, in our proclamation of the gospel, in our prayerfulness, in our humility and demeanor, and in our preparation to preach on the streets.
The 5 men at this Roundtable are:
1. Tom Rayborn
2. Dave Bowman
4. Nathan Groves
5. Geoff Kirkland
Pastor Geoff preaches on the streets of St Louis, MIssouri during a very busy and crowded lunch hour. He preaches on the sin of anger. We're guilty. Yet, for those who acknowledge their anger, their sin, and run to Christ at Calvary for mercy and grace, He will forgive them and wash their sins away! O May many turn to Christ and live!
