Pastor Geoff urges many passers-by in downtown Clayton, MO to repent of sin and flee to Christ while they still have time! This occurred during a lunch-hour as Pastor Geoff preached the gospel of Jesus Christ & pleaded with sinners to fly to Christ for refuge!
"An Urgent Call to Children to Turn to Christ & Follow Him!"
This message covers the eschatological era called the "Tribulation" which comprises a seven-year period of time when God will judge the world for her sin & prepare Israel to receive her Messiah.
This message is an overview of the Tribulation & a jet-tour through the Book of Revelation.
"An Overview of Jeremiah: Judgment is Coming! Repent!"
This sermon concludes our expository preaching series through Proverbs 1-9. This final section, Proverbs 9, is a fitting summary and conclusion to the section.

"An Introduction to the Book of Revelation, Part 1"
This message is the introduction to the book of Revelation. Pastor Geoff covers the introductory issues that are essential to a proper understanding (=hermeneutic) of the Book of Revelation. This message covers topics such as the authorship, the date, the purpose, the themes, the theological doctrines covered, and the proper way to read and interpret the Book of Revelation.
God has intended Revelation to be an understandable book so that His people would have joy and live expectant lives ready for the any-moment return of Christ!
"An Introduction to Revelation, Part 2: The OT in Revelation"
Pastor Geoff provides part 2 of the introduction to the Book of Revelation.
This week covers the following topics:
- How John uses and alludes to the Old Testament often
- What is the meaning of a text (what the original A/author intended & what the original readers understood)
- What kind of genre of writing is this? Prophecy
- What are Old Testament texts that still remain unfulfilled that still await future, complete fulfillment?
"An Intriguing Question on Marriage, the Resurrection, & the Afterlife!"
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff teaches on the odd, hypothetical question that the Sadducees raise to Jesus in order to show that his doctrine of the resurrection is totally illogical & foolish.
Jesus responds with brilliant directness & clarity. He shows that there IS a future resurrection and He shows it with a theological argument and an exegetical (biblical) argument.
Learn from our Savior and see how masterful and clear He responds to those who posed this question to Him.
Psalm 4 is David's hymn affirming his trust in the Lord even while his enemies pursue him and slander his character. But David has a robust confidence in the Lord that allows him to lie down and sleep with the certain confidence that the Lord will sustain him.
Listen & apply this message.
"An Evening Prayer for Your Spiritual Growth & Protection!"
Pastor Geoff preaches Psalm 141 -- an evening prayer for 'closing each day with God.' In this psalm we learn from David how to pray in the evening & some key elements that should characterize our evening petitions:
1) hear me!
2) sanctify me!
3) protect me!
Listen to this psalm expounded & be a doer of the Word as well as a hearer!
Pastor Geoff preaches at a men's gathering in St Louis, MO and preaches on "Godly Zeal" -- not just sheer zeal or bare excitement. But the point of the sermon is looking at characteristics that help us understand what Godly Zeal is.
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff continues the verse by verse exposition through EPHESIANS. Ephesians 2:10 is the glorious conclusion to Paul's magnificent explanation of God's Work of salvation for sinners (2:1-9). In 2:10, we see that we are God's workmanship -- handiwork -- and he Created us (regeneration/new-creations) for good works.
God has saved us and He will sanctify us. He changes our hearts and he will conform us to Christ!
"Amazing Grace! You're Saved By Grace, Thru Faith, In Christ!"
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff continues the exposition through the book of Ephesians and shows how all of this glorious work of redemption is a work of God. The main verb in these verses is "You have been saved."
Then, in vv.8-9, Paul fleshes this out with 5 supporting phrases/clauses. **HOW ARE YOU SAVED?**
1. By grace
2. Thru faith
3. Outside yourself
4. From God
5. Without works
Why? So that no one may boast (in self and in our accomplishments) -- but we boast ONLY in Jesus Christ!
Psalm 82 reveals the reality that all human rulers and authorities are under the sovereign rule of God. All rulers will have to give an account to the Supreme Ruler on the final day. We should pray for our leaders and long for justice.
Remember >> 28% of black pregnancies result in abortion!
> abortion is the #1 killer of black people in America.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, abortion kills more black people than HIV, homicide, diabetes, accident, cancer, and heart disease … combined.
>> already about 19 million abortions worldwide THIS year
This much is true: In the United States, the abortion rate for black women is almost five times that for white women. Antiabortion activists, including some African-American pastors, have been waging a campaign around this fact, falsely asserting that the disparity is the result of aggressive marketing by abortion providers to minority communities.
> the greatest civil rights issue in our day is the SLAYING OF THOUSANDS OF CHILDREN DAILY
Geoff preaches Psalm 117 at the Bridge Bible Fellowship & calls everyone to grasp a greater view of God and his glory that will come among the nations. Geoff calls everyone to consider a life of total surrender to serving Christ — even on the foreign mission field so as to take God's gospel to the unreached & be used by God to see more sinners become worshippers of the one, true God. Listen & Apply.
Pastor Geoff begins the exposition through Psalm 119 and begins with the first stanza of 8 verses - the aleph stanza (all 8 verses begin with the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet, Aleph).
This stanza extols the joy and blessedness that comes to the man of God who commits himself to walk in the way of God and who is obsessed with diligently keeping God's laws!
The Bible is under extreme attack today by countless sides and yet the Bible is like a "Lion that will defend itself."
This opening portion of the psalm speaks to the joy that believers have in God's Word and the diligent obedience that we must have to His Word as well.
