In this sermon, Pastor Geoff shows how we can enjoy the beauty of marriage in a God-glorifying, gospel-centered, Christ-exalting way. This comes when love is at the foundation of the marriage covenant.
Pastor Geoff shows that marriage is a God-given covenant of companionship between one man and one woman for life.
Then he spells out three ways that this kind of love manifests itself so as to properly display the glory of the gospel in our marriages.

Pastor Geoff preaches at the very affluent Clayton, MO during a lunch-hour break in the downtown area. He preaches Titus 3:3 on how sinners who are not converted are "enslaved to various lusts." Yet there is hope in Jesus Christ. There is one way of salvation -- through repenting of sin and trusting solely and fully in the righteousness of Jesus Christ.
In this message, Pastor Geoff teaches on eschatology (doctrine of end-times) and provides a biblical case for the pretribulation rapture.
That is to say, Jesus Christ will return to catch up His people (all who are alive) to meet Him in the clouds to be with Him forever. And this immediate, quick, sudden coming will occur before the seven-year Tribulation period that will come upon the whole earth.

Pastor Geoff teaches on 'a theology of evangelism' and covers specifically:
1. anthropology (doctrine of man's depravity & inability)
2. regeneration (the sovereign work of God to give life to a dead soul)
Pastor Geoff teaches the next section of the 'biblical theology of evangelism' and in this class session, Geoff teaches on the doctrine of soteriology (salvation) and how the work of salvation is ALL of God -- totally, fully from God (from first to last).
The primary text that this class works through is Romans 8:28-30.
Listen to this and let the absolute sovereignty of God fuel your confidence in and desire for evangelism.

Ezekiel: Then you will know that I am the LORD (judgment Ezek 35 and hope Ezek 36)
**EVANGELISM DOES GLORIFY GOD…
as it FAITHFULLY DECLARES THE BIBLICAL GOSPEL.
as it WATERS THE SEED OF THE GOSPEL IN HEARTS OF GOD’S ELECT
as it BRINGS GOD’S ELECT TO SALVATION AS GOD REGENERATES & THEY REPENT & BELIEVE
as it HARDENS THE REPROBATE AND INCREASES THEIR SIN & CONDEMNATION
as it PROCLAIMS THE ‘NAME ABOVE ALL NAMES’ PUBLICLY
as it OBEYS THE CLEAR COMMAND TO ‘GO AND PROCLAIM REPENTANCE’ (Luke 24)
