Pastor Geoff continues preaching through the Gospel of Luke and teaches on the parable that Jesus tells because people supposed that He was going to start the kingdom immediately.
But Jesus tells a parable to show that He, as the King, will depart for a while and then He will return and call all of His slaves to account for how faithful they have been.
This message is a call for all of God's slaves to serve Him faithfully. Let God deal with the results. Our duty is to remain faithful.
It's also a warning to those who are lazy, idle, unbelieving, and self-congratulating. The warning is sober because when the Master returns He will slay all His enemies and cast them to judgment forever.
Turn to Christ today! Serve Him with faithfulness!
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff preaches on the grace of God that provides the power to live a transformed life. We cannot live out all the commands that God calls us to IN OUR OWN strength. We need HIS almighty and sovereign strength. Titus 2:11-14 provides the glorious hope in the book of Titus -- God's grace supplies us with all we need to live out what He calls us to!
"How I Lead Morning Devotions With Kids Practically"
Pastor Geoff tackles a question that might be asked: "how must I as a Christian respond to the many movies, TV shows, etc. that are promoting nudity in all of its forms?" How should Christians respond? What should we do? How should we act? What should we say?

Listen to these Scriptures that help clarify the pastoral responsibilities.
"How People Change! God's 3 Ingredients to Help You Grow!"
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff exposits these verses and shows how God's wisdom in proverbs practically affects your day to day life. The father, Solomon, teaches his son in 2 ways: 1. My Son! Avoid this! 2. My Son! Here's why! There are very shocking statements on the wicked and how they are under God's wrath and shall receive His anger forever if they die in their sin. But, O the glory! O the glory of the children of God who have great intimacy with their Lord! www.CFBCSTL.org
"How Should a True Believer React to the Word of God?"
In this message, Pastor Geoff teaches from the Bible as to how we as Bible-believing Christians must engage with and interact with our homosexual friends, loved ones, neighbors, co-workers.
The Word of God makes clear that we must interact with our unbelieving friends by speaking the Truth with Love.
This message gives clarity so that we can stand courageously on the Word of God and engage with the lost world and shine as lights in the midst of it.

Pastor Geoff preaches on Habakkuk 2:4 - the just shall live by faith and calls all men and women on the streets of St Louis, Missouri to come to Christ by faith alone & in so doing, God reckons Christ's righteousness to them and treats them as justified sinners.
The doctrine of justification is the heart & central organ of the gospel.
Sinners are justified by faith alone in Jesus Christ alone.
In this psalm, Geoff preaches and provides a helpful way to biblically deal with distress in your life.
David felt forsaken, abandoned by God, persecuted from enemies, depressed, lonely, near the brink of death, and filled with fear. Yet he prayed to God & found a rock-solid foundation upon which he could stand strong — namely, in God's unchanging love.
Geoff preaches Psalm 109 and gives two ways to respond to the harshest of verbal accusations and criticism. The way that David presents his predicament to God and then how David prioritizes his perspective on God and His character serves as a fitting lesson for us when we are verbally assaulted. Listen and apply this sermon.
