Our study of the book of Hebrews continues with chapter 8, which declares Jesus as the supreme High Priest of the New Covenant and quotes a passage from Jeremiah 31 that tells why the new is better than the old.  This message also answers the question, “Why do we need Jesus as our High Priest?”  30 minutes

Hebrews 2 – Jesus Lived Among Us

This second sermon in the series on the book of  Hebrews exposits the author’s claim in chapter 2 that the message of Jesus is superior to the message of the old covenant and that through the sufferings Jesus experienced in his sinless life he completely qualified to be our Savior.   34 minutes

We Must Obey God Rather Than Men

Peter’s powerful declaration in Acts 5:29 describes the Christian response to conflict between the commandments of God and those of human government.  But why must we do this?  Throughout Acts chapter 5 we find important and inspiring answers.  36 minutes

Do You Belong Here?

Jesus said “I will build my church.”  If you are a Christian, do you know for sure that you belong in the body of Christ?  This message explains how you can know the answer — and why it is important.  35 minutes
