Evaluating your kids spiritual condition
some questions to ask your children...
Tell me about your trust in Jesus & your love for him.
what do you enjoy most in your Bible reading?
what are your strongest temptations to sin?
what do you like most about church?
If you weren’t being raised in a Christian home, what would you miss about it most of all?
if a friend of yours asked you how to become a Christian, what would you say??

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.
"Evangelism Class #7 - Ecclesiology & Eschatology"
Pastor Geoff teaches more on a biblical theology evangelism and here discusses how evangelism is related to a correct doctrine of:
- ecclesiology (doctrine of the church)
- eschatology (doctrine of last things)
"Evangelism Class #8 - Evangelism and Loving Your Neighbor"
Evangelism IS effective & it is WORTHWHILE and it is worth your time, sacrifice, comfort, energy and resources….
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)
Pastor Geoff preaches in the open air during a busy lunch-hour rush in Clayton, Missouri and heralds the text when Jesus passes thru Jericho and comes across the blind man! Jesus has the power to give sight to the blind!

"Every Christian's Obligation — To Mortify Sin!" Part 1
Pastor Geoff preaches Luke 6:43-45 in the final "exhortation" section of Christ's Sermon on the Mount. In this portion of the sermon, he has just pleaded with the crowds to enter through the narrow gate and how he shows them WHY they must do so -- because the heart is the root that brings forth fruit. He shows that one's conduct, thoughts, words, and ways of life all come from the heart.
Listen to this message & examine your own heart & the fruit of your life that reveals what kind of tree you are!
"Everything I Gained Is Loss Compared with Knowing Christ!"
Pastor Geoff preaches on Philippians 3:7-8 on the verses that Paul says that everything that he had gained (earned) in his own self-righteousness he now considers to be loss -- indeed, he calls it "rubbish/dung!"
There's something far greater that every child of God receives -- the knowledge of Jesus Christ the LORD.
