"The Catholic Church Attacks the Singularity of God's Gospel"
Pastor Geoff continues the series on examining the Roman Catholic Church's doctrine on various issues and comparing it with the truth & authority of God's Word.
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff examines how the Roman Catholic Church believes that salvation comes through the Church, that Mary is a co-redeemer together with Christ, that humans can merit and contribute to salvation (justification) and that the Catholic faith is inclusive in accepting other faiths/religions (including Muslims).
Pastor Geoff then preaches Acts 4.12 and shows that salvation is found ONLY by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone. Repent and believe and be saved from God's coming wrath!
"The Centerpoint of Revival: The Supreme Glory of Jesus Christ!"
Pastor Geoff preaches Daniel 12:1-2 on the streets of St Louis during a busy afternoon rush and he teaches on the certainty, the finality, and the place of future judgment. He also calls all to repent of sin & come to Christ!
"The Certainty of Heaven: It Promotes Holiness & Adoration of the Triune God!"
Geoff preaches to a group of men and exhorts them to not become lukewarm. He exposits Revelation 3:14-22 and gives six ways to protect yourself from becoming lukewarm and falling under God's judgment. Listen and apply this sermon.
"The Church of Pergamum: The Compromising Church!"
Geoff preaches to a group of men and exhorts them from Revelation 3 on what a faithful & holy Church looks like. He also speaks about the rapture and how Christ promises to keep his people out of the future tribulation period. Listen and apply these practical truths to your life.
"The Church of Philadelphia: The Letter of Hope to a Faithful Church!"
Pastor Geoff preaches on the letter from Christ to the Church in Philadelphia (Rev 3.7-13). In this letter, Christ commends and comforts the church for their faithfulness, their fidelity to the truth, & their perseverance in the faith.
Revelation 3:10 also is a promise from Christ to His Church that He will protect her from the coming hour of trial (Tribulation) that will come upon the entire inhabited world. This text provides helpful insights in understanding that the church is not destined for the coming wrath in the Tribulation period.

"The Church of Sardis: Beware, You Look Alive But You're Dead!"

sovereign authority of Christ
specific agenda of Christ
supernatural assistance of Christ
sustained advancement with Christ
"The Church: Worship, Fellowship, and Your Role in It"
As pastor Geoff continues the exposition through Luke's gospel, he shows how Jesus cleanses a leper by His compassion and with His touch and how even the most dirty, filthy, rejected outcasts can be healed by Christ & cleansed by Him!
Christ graciously and tenderly welcomes all who come to Him in saving faith! The leprous disease of sin can be totally cleansed by the Lord Jesus Christ and His marvelous forgiveness! Call upon Him like this leper did and find cleansing!
