In this sermon, Pastor Geoff preaches Psalm 37 which tells us how to live a life trusting God while in the midst of a crooked & perverse generation — especially when the wicked seem to prosper.

"Church Leaders Must Manage Their Households Well!"
Pastor Geoff exposits Psalm 38 and shows how to pray when suffering. What are some questions to ask so as to figure out if a sickness or trial has happened because of a sin? How do we kill sin? Who is the One who conquered all our sin and bore our burden?
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff exposits through Joshua 20 â€” the cities of refuge that God designated for those who killed others unintentionally â€” and he shows how we are all guilty before God and in need of an ultimate refuge to save from God's wrath.
This refuge is found only in Jesus Christ.
"See Your Dead, Lifeless, Cold & Hellish Condition in Your Sin!"

In this sermon, Pastor Geoff preaches on the narrative of the two and a half tribes returning home to the East Side of the Jordan River. The zeal for the LORD almost leads Israel into a full-blown internal war.
