Pastor Geoff preaches the gospel of Jesus Christ -- the heart of Pauline theology -- as Philippians 3:3-6 reveals two very different ways of life --- trusting in Christ or trusting in credentials.
Verse 3 reveals trust in Christ alone as those who are the "true circumcision" (of the heart). Verses 4-6 shows Paul's list of credentials where he shows the magnitude of his religiosity and how it is all unable to add to or contribute to his saving in any way whatsoever.
Salvation is found by faith alone in Jesus Christ alone.
"Creationism & Evolution; It Really Does Matter—Examining the Biblical Texts"
In this Super Study, Pastor Geoff declares that CFBC unashamedly confesses the literal, historical-narrative reading of Genesis 1-2 which inevitably leads one to a young-earth, divine-fiat, sovereign, supernatural, unrepeatable viewpoint on Creation.
Listen to this helpful sermon & the discussion at the end.
"Creating & Cultivating a Church of Love — Hospitality"
Here Pastor Geoff Gives Some Helps for the Lonely: -- from Psalm 36
Nothing in this world will ever lastingly satisfy or cure your loneliness. (1, 4)
God dwells in interpersonal relationship of happy joy in the Triune Godhead. (5, 6-7, 9)
God created man with deep fellowship with Him and with others. (10)
Saints must live by faith & actively trust in the abiding & satisfying love of God. (7-9)
"Corrupt Officials Will Be Punished Once and for All!"
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff shows how David prays for the utter destruction of the evil rulers & officials of the day. Their evil is sourced in the heart and their defilement has existed since the womb.
Indeed, God will judge the wicked but God also promises to reward the righteous.
Pastor Geoff preaches on the brevity of life and the soon-coming death of all people. He calls all the passers by to "consider their latter end" as he preaches on the streets of St Louis, MO.
"Consider the Significance of the Cross--Justification"
Tom Rayborn preaches on the brevity of life, on the horrors of sin, and on the sureness of hell for all who remain unbelieving. He calls and pleads with sinners to repent and come to Christ!
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff preaches the final 2 accounts (of the 5) of this lengthy section that focuses on the theme of CONFLICT (Mark 2:1 - 3:6). Jesus is in conflict with false religion = works-based righteousness.
In this account, we see the AUTHORITY OF JESUS CHRIST -- in particular, over the Sabbath (the central mark and defining feature of Judaism).
Jesus PROCLAIMS his authority over the Sabbath (2:23-28)
Jesus PROVES his authority over the Sabbath (3:1-6)
