"Establish Your Ways Before the Lord Your God! Learning from King Jotham!"
Pastor Geoff preaches John 1:14-18 at the Autumn View Gardens Senior Living Home & shows 4 essential & glorious truths to believe about the amazingly beautiful & unspeakably glorious Jesus!
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff works through 1 Thessalonians 1 and draws out 8 essential marks of a healthy, biblical local church:
A faithful, biblical church is a ...
1. God-centered church
2. praying church
3. serving church
4. converted church
5. joyful church
6. evangelistic church
7. repenting church
8. watchful church
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 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.
Listen to this open air gospel message.
"Enjoy the Beauty of Marriage in a God-Glorifying Way!" Part 2
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.
