Pastor Geoff preaches on the section in Luke 11 where Jesus teaches His followers to be importunate (persistent) in prayer. Like Jacob, we should wrestle with God until He blesses us. Like the Syro-Phoenecian woman, we must humbly bow and beg God till He listens and answers. Like Elijah, we should pray earnestly and expectantly till God fulfills His promises. Like blind Bartimaeus, we should cry out (and cry out louder) until the Lord stops, hears us, and answers our plea.
We must urgently come to God and press our longings upon His heart until He answers us! Let us not grow discouraged or fainthearted. But let us be a people who pray with persistence!
Pastor Geoff preaches Luke 11:5-8 at the Grace Bible Conference hosted by Rockport Baptist Church in Arnold, MO.
This message centers on the theme of shepherding one another through persistently praying to God. Pastors, fathers, husbands, and leaders must remember to shepherd one another through persistently praying for one another.

"The Pillars of CFBC to Support the Truth of the Word"
In this teaching, Geoff examines the 5 pillars of CFBC and individually goes through them to review & remind all of us what CFBC must be about to have a healthy, God-centered, Word-saturated, Christ-exalting church.
THE FIVE PILLARS
1. An all-encompassing passion for the glory of God.
2. The expository preaching of the Word of God.
3. The zealous pursuit of consistent holiness of life.
4. The continuous evangelizing of the local community.
5. The global vision to proclaim the gospel to the nations.
Pastor Geoff preaches this psalm and shows what a true longing for God is like. How does one have such a zeal for the Lord and for the worship of His holy name? How can one increase in his yearning for Christ & His gospel? How can a believer prepare for heaven — a world of perfect, Christ-centered worship?
Listen to this psalm as the portrait of a satisfied worshiper in God is shown.
"The Portrait of a the Person Who Loves God's Word!"
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff preaches on the power of God on display in the creation of all things -- by His spoken Word!
The power of God is seen around 4 headings in this message. Genesis 1 is surveyed along with other Scriptures in the Old and New Testaments to show that God sovereignly, monergistically, gloriously created ALL things -- in 6 literal, 24-hour days -- all by His spoken, unstoppable, glorious word!
This sermon shows the great faith of the Syrophoenecian woman who came to Jesus. We can learn from her. Here are 4 great and needed lessons for us in prayer:
1. Come to Jesus URGENTLY.
2. Come to Jesus PERSISTENTLY.
3. Come to Jesus HUMBLY.
4. Come to Jesus EXPECTANTLY.
"The Power of Pride to Take You Down in Shame: King Uzziah"

the depravity of the REBEL
the command of the LORD
the sovereignty of the SPIRIT
the timelessness of the CALL

Pastor Geoff preaches on the streets of St Louis and shows how the Old Testament Law required the Priest to make atonement for sins through a blood-sacrifice. But now, there has been one final, ultimate, never-to-be-repeated sacrifice that Christ made at Calvary when He offered Himself for His people!
Christ is the great High Priest who brings His people to God! Repent, believe the gospel, and follow after Christ!
