In the open air of St Louis, MO, at the Metrolink station behind Barnes Hospital, Pastor Geoff preaches the gospel of Jesus Christ and exposes the sin of complaining from the book of Numbers and shows how God's anger is kindled against our sin & how the only remedy is found at the cross of Christ through His substitutionary atonement.

1 Peter 5:2

Consider the great love of Jesus Christ from Ephesians 3.19 --
A practical way to meditate on the facets of Christ's great love for us. His love is supreme and preeminent because...
No love STOOPS like Christ’s love
No love SUFFERS like Christ’s love
No love GIVES like Christ’s love
No love LASTS like Christ’s love
No love SATISFIES like Christ’s love
No love MOTIVATES like Christ’s love
KNOWING this love…
but will make ushappy,holyandusefulin our day and generation.
One great cause of the present condition of the Church is that we do not know Christ’s love to us. We spend out time with petty things, and in fussy activities and discussions. Were we to be full of this love and of the knowledge of this love we would be entirely transformed. It is this knowledge that makes us mighty. That is why the Apostle prayed without ceasing that these Ephesians might “with all saints comprehend what is the breadth and length and the depth and the height, and to know the love of Christ which passeth knowledge”. Oh that we might know it, and grow in it and rejoice in it.
In this podcast, Pastor Geoff talks about Jesus Christ as our SUPREME good -- our all sufficient portion of infinite goodness.
Jesus is the MOST SUPREME good.
Jesus is the MOST SUFFICIENT good.
Jesus is the MOST SUITABLE good.
Jesus is the MOST SANCTIFYING good.
Jesus is the MOST SWEETEST good.
Jesus is the MOST SECURING good.
Jesus is the MOST STRENGTHENING good.
Pastor Geoff preaches Hebrews 10 at New Community Church (St Louis) on WHY the death/crosswork of Jesus Christ is REALLY sufficient. How do we know His work really is *ENOUGH*?
1. Because of the inadequacy of the Law
2. Because of the majesty of the Son
3. Because of the singularity of the Atonement
In this sermon, our savior prophecies about His mission to suffer & die and He reveals the details in 3 ways that all speak of what the Savior did for you.
1. Your Savior was HANDED OVER for you.
2. Your Savior was CRUCIFIED for you.
3. Your Savior was RAISED for you.
Pastor Geoff finishes the 5-part series on the sovereignty of God in salvation in the 'Golden Chain' from Romans 8:29-30:
Listen to this sermon as Geoff describes what glorification is and shows how spectacular glorification is for the believer!
"The Sovereignty of God in Salvation, Part 4: Justification"
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff preaches part 4 on the "Golden Chain" of salvation — justification by faith alone.
Pastor Geoff examines justification, explains the meaning of God imputing Christ's righteousness to the sinner's account, and he exhorts the flock to know, live for, understand, love, and die for this doctrine.
Finally, he provides 5 ways to enjoy this doctrine.
"The Sovereignty of God in Salvation, Part 3: Calling"
Pastor Geoff continues the exposition through Romans 8 and works through the "Golden Chain" of salvation. In vv.28-30, Paul shows the utter sovereignty of God in salvation and the eternal security of the believer's salvation.
Listen to this sermon on God's effectual, efficacious, saving, sovereign call.
"The Sovereignty of God in Salvation, Part 2: Predestination"
This sermon surveys the divine sovereignty & human responsibility truths that are both found in the Bible. God is absolutely sovereign in ordaining, decreeing, and predestining everything that ever takes place -- but God is not the doer of sin, man is culpable and accountable for his sins.
Isa 10 is God's judgment upon ASSYRIA - the people in God's Hand that He used to judge Israel. Assyria acted in great and haughty pride.
This chapter shows us God's magnificence & wisdom in 2 profound ways...
1. Be HUMBLED BY GOD'S HOLINESS (10.5-19)
2. Be HOPEFUL IN GOD'S FAITHFULNESS (10.20-34)
