Not our arguments as much as our influence will finish Christ's work, because nobody was ever won to Jesus by a person he didn't like. "The influence of a holy life is the most convincing sermon that can be given in favor of Christianity. Argument, even when unanswerable, may provoke only opposition; but a godly example has a power that it is impossible wholly to resist” (AA 510.2).

Part 5 of this sermon series focuses on the question: "Who is my neighbor?" Using the familiar story of the Good Samaritan, we will study the parallels between Jesus'; audience in Jericho that day and those of us who today may still be pondering, "Who is my neighbor?" and how will my actions reflect the principle illustrated by the unwanted, rejected Samaritan who showed mercy to his enemy.

The story of Zacchaeus is one that is often set aside for children, in this message however we explore the story to find where we as a church stand. The picture of evangelism and the gospel that unfolds in this story offer something for the followers of Jesus today.

What do you think about when you hear the words personal evangelism? For most people, those words carry a lot of baggage. It evokes scary memories of going door-to-door or speaking with strangers. But is that what evangelism is actually about? In Part 1 of this series we’ll explore the model that Jesus gives, and here’s the good news—it doesn’t involve speaking with strangers.

As we approach the end of another year and enter into the Christmas season, it's never been more apparent that the world is in desperate need of that baby born in a manger so many years ago. We must now, as God's people did over 2000 years ago, lift our voices in this prayer: "Veni, Veni Emmanuel (O Come, O Come, Immanuel)".

It's easy to be thankful for the good things that happen to you. However, we often forget to be thankful for the bad things that didn't happen! Perhaps we have far more things to be thankful for than we've ever realized.

Mission Possible

The heartbreaking terrorist attacks in the streets of Paris only serve as a painful reminder that we live in a broken world. Our planet is filled with cities, and those cities are filled with hurting people who are in desperate need of a few inner city angels.

Considering the Adventist Church's historical stance on the separation of Church and State, how do we respond to the increased attention and scrutiny brought on by the presidential candidacy of one of our prominent members? Where do we stand when it comes to the causes of our Evangelical nation? How can we best serve this nation that we love?

Nearly 500 years ago, a young monk stood all alone before the the greatest assembly of powers, princes, and pontificates the world had ever seen. His courage would spark one of the greatest social revolutions in history. How can we tap into that same source of strength to start our own social revolution today?

Sometimes life throws a sign in your face that says "Road Closed". Where do you go from here? Is this the end of the journey is it just an opportunity to get back on track via an unexpected detour.

As Christians, we've never called this world our home. We are as exiles in a foreign land. But how do we reach a culture that is so wholly secular, so different from what we have been called to? How do we engage this culture without conforming to it?

In 1832, a man named Joseph Bates decided in the sight of God that he must take a stand for those who were oppressed.

EARTHQUAKE: God's Seismic Love for Our Broken World

The Radicals: This Generation, This World, This Time

“Two billion people today have no access to anyone who can tell them about Jesus. Only one in every thirty missionaries work among these two billion. For every $100 in the offering plate, only one penny goes to this work.” Are there any radicals out there who want to see this change? And would even be willing to help make it happen? But where would you even start?

The Truth About Hell

The fires of purgatory are the same as the fires of hell, only the purpose and the result are different: so goes the classical doctrine of hell. The debate over purgatory isn't simply a matter of differing interpretations of Scripture. There's much more at stake here.
