Church on Purpose - Jesus' Disciples | MP3
Sermon delivered by Pastor Allen Jackson
July 16, 2017

The doorway into the Church is through a person, Jesus of Nazareth. One way we honor Him is by living intentionally so that His purposes can emerge in the Church. Pastor Allen teaches that, like the early disciples, we do this through confessing Jesus as Lord, participating in water baptism, serving in His name, and growing toward spiritual maturity in the context of a small group.
Church on Purpose - Journey | MP3
Sermon delivered by Pastor Allen Jackson
July 9, 2017

The greatest invitation we can ever receive is to be a part of the Church of Jesus Christ. The gathering of God’s people in a committed community is essential to our spiritual well-being and maturity. As we integrate our commitment to Jesus into the entire fabric of our lives, God does something through us to give purpose to our days in the earth and also lay up treasure in heaven.
Lessons from Israel - Attitudes that Bring Blessings | MP3
Sermon delivered by Pastor Allen Jackson
July 2, 2017

America was founded with a desire that it be a place where people have the freedom to worship as they choose, and at its heart was a Judeo-Christian ethic. God has blessed us as a nation, but like the nation of Israel, our future will only be secured by our willingness to acknowledge our heritage of faith. God has called us into existence for His purposes, and we must let it be known that we are grateful and expectant for the blessing of God as we choose to live for Jesus in our daily lives.
A Meditation From the Book of Philippians | MP3
Sermon delivered by Pastor Malcolm Hedding
June 18, 2017

The Bible is clear about the fact that the eye is a gate to the mind and that we are greatly impacted by what we see, read, and think about. These things in turn influence our emotions, and our emotions determine our actions. Malcolm Hedding reminds that as we saturate our minds with the Word of God, we guard our spiritual lives and in turn think and do those things that please God.
Spiritually Aware - Call to Action | MP3
Sermon delivered by Pastor Allen Jackson
June 11, 2017

Spiritual forces influence our lives, and awareness of them changes everything. Pastor Allen teaches that as we practice our faith through Bible reading and prayer and letting Jesus’ words and actions inform our imaginations, we begin to live in the freedom and fullness of all that God intends for us.
Spiritually Aware - Victory Over Darkness | MP3
Sermon delivered by Pastor Allen Jackson
June 4, 2017

We’re here on an assignment: to see the Kingdom of God extended and the story of Jesus held in high esteem. While being a Christ-follower doesn’t remove us from the arena of spiritual conflict, the power of Almighty God resides within us, at work on our behalf. He will give us the ability to stand in the most improbable places so that people will look at us and say, “Only God could have made that happen.”
Jerusalem and the People of God | MP3
Sermon delivered by Pastor Allen Jackson
May 28, 2017

Jerusalem is the city of God and at the center of God’s purposes in the earth. Satan hates the Jewish people because they are the instrument for the delivery of God’s redemptive purposes for all of humanity, and the hatred of Christians and Antisemitism are two sides of the same coin. Our faith is anchored in Jesus of Nazareth, and He tells us that we have been given the power to overcome and stand firm till the end, no matter our circumstances.
Living Spiritually Aware | MP3
Sermon delivered by Pastor Allen Jackson
May 21, 2017

We will not succeed in accomplishing the purposes of God in this generation unless we live with a view of eternity and a heightened awareness of spiritual things. This is our time, Pastor Allen teaches, and we are to be God’s standard-bearers in every place He invites us, wielding the authority that is ours through the shed blood of Jesus.
Foundations - Mother's Day | MP3
Sermon delivered by Pastor Allen Jackson
May 14, 2017

One of the expressions of God’s sovereignty is that He chose our parents for us. There are no perfect parents, but when we honor them we honor Him. The relationship we have with our mothers is foundational to our spiritual well-being. It’s not about the quality of the parenting we received; it’s about inviting the Spirit of God into that relationship so that we will grow and be prepared for all that God has for us.
Through the Cross - Jesus, Our Lord | MP3
Sermon delivered by Pastor Allen Jackson
May 7, 2017

Through the Cross - Experiencing Freedom | MP3
Sermon delivered by Pastor Allen Jackson
April 30, 2017

It is through the cross we enter the Kingdom of God. It is through the cross we are delivered from the bondage of sin. It is through the cross the power of God brings wholeness to our bodies and peace to our minds. There is no message more significant than “Through the Cross,” for it is through the cross that God will supply every need we have.
Through the Cross - Authority & Power | MP3
Sermon delivered by Pastor Allen Jackson
April 23, 2017

Through the cross we come to all the freedoms that are ours through Christ Jesus. Jesus has given His followers permission to use His name to accomplish the purposes of God―with the same authority attached to it as if He were making the request. And we should do it with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, who is within us and amongst us.
The Power of Giving - Abundant Life | MP3
Sermon delivered by Pastor Allen Jackson
April 16, 2017

God’s intent is to enable us to live abundant lives. No matter what gifts or talents or abilities we have apart from God, if we yield to Him, He will bring us better things than we would have apart from Him. Teaching from the story of Abraham, Pastor Allen shows that God invites us into a relationship with Him that will give purpose to our days and help us overcome the obstacles of life.
The Power of Giving - Great Expectations | MP3
Sermon delivered by Pastor Allen Jackson
April 9, 2017

Generosity brings good things to your life. There is a force, a power, an authority in giving. When you choose to be a generous person, your life is opened to the blessings of God in many ways that would not come otherwise. Pastor Allen teaches there are three things necessary to sustain a generous lifestyle: integrity, work, and perseverance.
The Power of Giving - Value Awareness | MP3
Sermon delivered by Pastor Allen Jackson
April 2, 2017

God gave us His best, and the whole Jesus-story is an expression of the value God attaches to you and me. How we use our time, our talents, and our resources is a reflection of what we value. When we see God, we will want Him to see that we value Him and have been generous with Him in every part of our lives.
The Power of Giving - Generous Living | MP3
Sermon delivered by Pastor Allen Jackson
March 26, 2017

How you handle your money has a lot to do with the condition of your heart, and it also has an impact on what God can and will do in and through your life. Living generously is something we learn, just as we learn to pray and to trust God. If we will learn to live our lives oriented to Him, He will pour out blessings beyond anything we could ever imagine.
All Things New - Every Perfect Gift | MP3
Sermon delivered by Pastor Allen Jackson
March 19, 2017

The creative expressions of God did not end in the early chapters of Genesis. In fact, His greatest creativity is ahead of us. As Jesus-followers, we have a new name, a new hope, a new family, a new purpose, and a new Helper in the Holy Spirit. He has promised to make all things new in eternity—a new world and world order that will be wonderful beyond our imagination.
All Things New - Transition of Power | MP3
Sermon delivered by Pastor Allen Jackson
March 12, 2017

Planet earth is not going to continue on as is, uninterrupted, forever. There’s a new beginning ahead of us, and it will be preceded by a conclusion, when Jesus returns. Until that day, we don’t have to live in fear of the passing away of this world’s system. If you’ve trusted Jesus of Nazareth as Lord of your life, something far better is ahead for you!
All Things New - Jesus is Lord | MP3
Sermon delivered by Pastor Allen Jackson
March 5, 2017

All Things New-Jesus is Lord - The most binding word in all of Scripture for an agreement is “covenant.” When Jesus established a new covenant between God and man through the shedding of His blood, He changed the potential for every aspect of our lives—emotionally, physically, spiritually, and materially. Pastor Allen Jackson reminds us that God continues to make all things new.
All Things New | MP3
Sermon delivered by Pastor Allen Jackson
February 26, 2017

God didn’t create the world and step out of the story. The Bible is filled with times when God engaged in the lives of humans and impacted outcomes on their behalf, and His creativity is still at work for us today. Until the end of the age when God steps into human history and makes all things new, we have a message for the world: There is a God. He cares about you. He has a plan for your life.
Through the Cross - A Divine Exchange | MP3
Sermon delivered by Pastor Allen Jackson
February 19, 2017

Through the Cross-A Divine Exchange - On the cross a divine exchange took place. God’s judgment due to us for our sin was poured out on Jesus so we might receive all the blessings due to Him for His perfect obedience. He took our punishment that we might have His blessing. When that truth grows and centers itself in the core of our being, it changes everything. We have an expectation God will do what He said He will do, and that’s called faith.
Through the Cross - Deliverance and Freedom | MP3
Sermon delivered by Pastor Allen Jackson
February 12, 2017

The cross is a statement of the power of God to transform our lives from the inside out. As we begin to live through the cross, we learn to think of the cross not only as the point of entry into the Kingdom of God, but also as the way we can tap into the power of God to help us negotiate the challenges of life.
Through the Cross - Power to Change | MP3
Sermon delivered by Pastor Allen Jackson
February 5, 2017

There is a great difference between believing in Jesus—even in His death and resurrection—and applying that truth to our circumstances. There is a better life for each of us if we are willing to live through the Cross of Jesus Christ, acknowledging His defeat of sin in our lives and the power and authority we have as children of God to live in freedom.
Through the Cross - A New Beginning | MP3
Sermon delivered by Pastor Allen Jackson
January 29, 2017

The story of the Cross—the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ\is at the center of our faith. The Cross is an expression of the power of God toward us. We must understand the purpose and the outcome of the Cross in order to experience the Kingdom of God. Without it we are left with lifeless, powerless religious activity. With it, we bring to power of God to bear in our lives.
The Honor of Walking With the Lord | MP3
Sermon delivered by Pastor Allen Jackson
January 22, 2017

Teaching from the life of Moses, Pastor Allen Jackson encourages us to look beyond our less-than-perfect beginnings and the injustices that may have impacted our lives and make a decision: Is my beginning going to determine my future? Or am I going to trust Almighty God to fulfill His purposes in my life? Like Moses, do we have the courage and the boldness to follow the Lord in such a way that the generations that follow us will be encouraged to follow the Lord because of our choices?
Why Israel Matters | MP3
Sermon delivered by Pastor Allen Jackson
January 15, 2017

Christ-followers are deeply indebted to the Jewish people. God told Abraham that all people would be blessed through his descendants. They were the vehicle through which God’s redemptive purposes were introduced to our world, and without them we would have no way to relate to God. God also told Abraham He would give him and his descendants a specific piece of property on planet earth, and it would belong to them forever. And the same God who made the covenant with Abraham is watching over us today.
Invest in Your Future | MP3
Sermon delivered by Pastor Allen Jackson
January 8, 2017

The Bible will give us a God-perspective that brings freedom and liberty as well as stability in unstable times. It will be too late to try to establish a God-perspective when we are faced with a desperate situation, so we should prepare for those times before they come. As a new year begins, Pastor Allen invites us to seek a greater understanding of the character and invitations of God through intentionally spending time in His Word.
Reflections On A Year | MP3
Sermon delivered by Pastor Allen Jackson
January 1, 2017

Pastor Allen asks some thought-provoking questions to help us focus as we begin a new year: Have you chosen Jesus as Lord of your life? Are you asking God to help you know the condition of your heart? Are you forgiving others as God has forgiven you? Are you cultivating a spirit of generosity with your time and talent and resources? Are you yielding to God and accepting the invitations He’s placed before you?
Christmas Day - Beyond the Stable | MP3
Sermon delivered by Pastor Allen Jackson
December 25, 2016

The elderly John, Jesus’ disciple and friend, wrote the book of Revelation from the Island of Patmos, where he had been exiled for his faith. The first chapter is John’s vivid description of Jesus, the Savior of the world who is “alive for ever and ever.” Pastor Allen teaches that our Lord is the ruler of the kings of the earth, and it’s the Church’s assignment to express the spiritual authority entrusted to us and bring the character and values of God to bear in our lives and in the midst of secular culture.
Christmas, A Promise Fulfilled - The Love of God | MP3
Sermon delivered by Pastor Allen Jackson
December 18, 2016

The birth of Jesus, the coming of Christ, is of greater significance than a single holiday and an exchange of gifts. The Incarnation, the coming of the Son of God, shows God’s great love for us and changes our lives for time and eternity. Following God is not easy, but if you will yield to Him and cooperate with Him, He will change your future and lead you toward His very best.
Christmas, A Promise Fulfilled - Joy and Strength | MP3
Sermon delivered by Pastor Allen Jackson
December 11, 2016

How do you arrive at the place where you lack nothing? It’s not about asset accumulation or emotional strength or intellectual vitality. It’s about the ability to consider it joy when you encounter various trials. Joy enables us to endure, to overcome, and to honor God with our lives. While most of us are purposeful about achieving happiness, Pastor Allen shares some steps toward cultivating joy.
Christmas, A Promise Fulfilled - Personal Preparation | MP3
Sermon delivered by Pastor Allen Jackson
December 4, 2016

Following God has much to do about willingness. Mary and Joseph were young people who were prepared to receive God’s message and embrace God’s purposes because there was a trajectory in their lives toward the Lord. Whatever season and circumstances you are in, you’ll be blessed as you begin to say, “Yes,” to the Lord with a greater intent, a greater purpose, and a greater sense of the honor in serving Him.
Christmas, A Promise Fulfilled - The Power of Hope | MP3
Sermon delivered by Pastor Allen Jackson
November 27, 2016

Hope is a powerful force, and a life without hope is a miserable life. But sometimes we find ourselves in desperate places because we’ve put our hope in something or someone other than Jesus of Nazareth. He is the completely trustworthy and living Son of God, and hope anchored in Him reaches beyond time into eternity and invites His purposes to emerge in our lives.
Thanksgiving | MP3
Sermon delivered by Pastor Malcolm Hedding
November 20, 2016

Pastor Malcolm Hedding says, “Thankfulness is an attitude of heart that acknowledges the faithfulness and the goodness of God” and our Thanksgiving celebrations should be solemn, joyful assemblies where the great heritage of our nation is recounted, especially before our children and grandchildren. He focuses on three things we should be particularly grateful for: God Himself, the grace of God in our lives, and God’s grace toward our nation.
We Need A Savior - The Jesus People | MP3
Sermon delivered by Pastor Allen Jackson
November 13, 2016

There is a God, and He has revealed Himself to us. While He has created us in His image, we are flawed and in need of a Savior. May it be said of us, first and foremost, that we are Jesus people who reflect the grace and mercy of Almighty God. But with grace comes responsibility, and as His people we have been given a season to pray and to act and to make possible the opportunities of God in the earth in a whole new way.
We Need a Savior | MP3
Sermon delivered by Pastor Allen Jackson
November 6, 2016

Our faith is not fundamentally about a moral code. Our faith is grounded in the notion that Almighty God is involved in the unfolding of human history and is the salvation of humanity. We were designed for a relationship with Him, and until we acknowledge Jesus as Savior there is a void within us. As our nation becomes more hostile to Christianity, we should pray for a revelation of Jesus that makes the truth welcome once again.
Behold the Bridegroom Comes | MP3
Sermon delivered by Malcolm Hedding
October 30, 2016

The validating sign that we’ve moved into what the Bible calls the end time is the sign of the reemergence of Israel on the world stage, Associate Pastor Malcolm Heddings says. After a recent trip to Israel, Pastor Malcolm shares that prophecy is indeed being fulfilled there―as millions of Jews physically move back to their homeland and as God moves among them, bringing spiritual restoration to His people.
Philippians - Life Lessons | MP3
Sermon delivered by Pastor Allen Jackson
October 16, 2016

“I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord,” Paul wrote to the Philippian church. Pastor Allen reminds us that knowing Christ is more than joining a church or being a religious person or even a moral person. Knowing Christ is about yielding our lives to Him and standing firm as we strive toward spiritual maturity and await His coming.
Philippians - A Letter from a Friend | MP3
Sermon delivered by Pastor Allen Jackson
October 9, 2016

“He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” Paul wrote this in a letter of encouragement to the Philippian church, reminding them that God’s work in them would be a lifelong and sometimes difficult process. We may never be imprisoned for standing for Jesus, as Paul was, but we may be called on to bear discomfort or disappointment. If we are, we should bear it with joy because our future is certain.
Let's Pray, Again - Jesus' Pattern | MP3
Sermon delivered by Pastor Allen Jackson
October 2, 2016

Jesus was a man of prayer whose many public victories were founded on His private prayer life. He spent an entire night in prayer before choosing His disciples, and later taught them to pray what we know as the Lord’s Prayer. The same authority that Jesus invested in those original disciples He has invested in His Church, to be a demonstration of the power of the gospel to a watching world.
Let's Pray, Again - Spiritual Influence | MP3
Sermon delivered by Pastor Allen Jackson
September 25, 2016

Small groups of believers standing together for the purposes of God is the story of the Bible. The transformation of our character precedes what God can do through us, and God’s empowered people have impacted communities and changed the course of history. Pastor Allen teaches that if we will turn our hearts to the Lord we can see the leaders of our nation say, “There is a living God, and His Kingdom endures forever.”
Let's Pray, Again - Prayer Warriors | MP3
Sermon delivered by Pastor Allen Jackson
September 18, 2016

Our world is filled with anxiety, but we don’t have to live that way. Pastor Allen reminds us that we are servants of the Most High God, the Creator of heaven and earth, who is searching the earth looking for men and women who care enough about His purposes to say, “I’ll pray.” And the prayers of just one person can make a difference!
God Bless America - Listening and Responding | MP3
Sermon delivered by Pastor Allen Jackson
September 11, 2016

We are a nation founded around an idea, that we would be one nation under God. And the idea was centered in a biblical worldview: the authority of Scripture, the uniqueness of Jesus, a desire to worship God. One of the responsibilities of every generation of American Christians is to defend, teach, and communicate that God loves us and has a purpose for our lives, even when sharing a God-perspective seems inconvenient or uncomfortable.
God Bless America - A Prophetic Perspective - Into the Arena | MP3
Sermon delivered by Pastor Allen Jackson
September 4, 2016

Life in 21st-century America is difficult, and we desperately need God’s prophetic perspective. In our own power, we as sinful humans don’t naturally gravitate toward justice, righteousness, honesty, and truth. We are a people in great need, but our God is All-Mighty and All-Sufficient. Only through the power of the cross can we be changed and live together in a way that enables all to flourish.
God Bless America - A Prophetic Perspective - The Promises of God | MP3
Sermon delivered by Pastor Allen Jackson
August 28, 2016

Almighty God has blessed America with freedom, abundance, protection, and great liberty. Yet we have turned our backs to Him and imagined that those blessings have come through our own strength. The Church’s primary responsibility is to see that the Gospel is declared across our land and pray that believers will awaken from their slumber and make an impact for God in this generation.
God Bless America - A Prophetic Perspective - Responsibility of Truth | MP3
Sermon delivered by Pastor Allen Jackson
August 21, 2016

Understanding God’s perspective, so that we can honor Him and serve Him with our lives, is a significant part of what it means to be a Christ-follower. Pastor Allen encourages us to awaken from our slumber and arise to be the people of God, standing in the public square, giving glory and honor to Almighty God, and lifting up the name of Jesus without shame or embarrassment, for greater is He who’s for us than everything that’s arrayed against us.
God Bless America - A Prophetic Perspective | MP3
Sermon delivered by Pastor Allen Jackson
August 14, 2016

Our nation has experienced a great season of turning away from the truth within the organized Christian faith. The transformation of our nation, the security of liberty and freedom for the generations who follow us, do not begin in the White House or the halls of Congress or even the seats of the Supreme Court. The authority for that begins in our hearts, in the Church of Jesus Christ being the Church.
 Learning to Overcome - Defeating Discouragement | MP3
Sermon delivered by Pastor Allen Jackson
August 7, 2016

Overcoming is not optional for living a successful life as a Christ-follower—it’s necessary. Pastor Allen reminds us that strength and courage are vital for a person of faith. We have access to all the strength and courage we need because our God is able. He’s the Creator of all things, who watches over the paths of nations and intervenes in human history. He doesn’t wring His hands in despair. Christ in us makes a difference—because our God is able!
The Power to Change (Baptism Weekend) | MP3
Sermon delivered by Pastor Allen Jackson
July 31, 2016

When you ask Jesus to be Lord of your life, something happens to you―something miraculous, something supernatural, something more powerful or profound than any experience you can imagine. There is a power present to transform you―with a profession of faith, with a step into the water, you’re saying, “Lord, I will follow You.” It’s a lifelong commitment, not a one-day choice. And one of the first steps of obedience is baptism.
Delivered from Slavery & Death | MP3
Sermon delivered by Pastor Allen Jackson
July 24, 2016

There is no better solution for the evil that confronts humanity than the Church of Jesus Christ. Pastor Allen discusses the reality of evil in the world and the power of the Gospel to deliver us from its influence and the importance of water baptism as a public sign of our allegiance to Jesus Christ.
Sticks, Stones & Words | MP3
Sermon delivered by Pastor Allen Jackson
July 17, 2016

Words are powerful. Jesus says that our words are endowed with spiritual authority, and that we will have to give an account for how we use them. The story of being a Christ-follower is the story of transformation from the inside out, and we should allow Him to mold us into people who use words to confess Him as Lord and extend His Kingdom beyond the walls of the church and into every part of our lives.
A Pilgrim's Tale | MP3
Sermon delivered by Pastor Allen Jackson
July 10, 2016

Inspired by a recent trip to Israel, Pastor Allen shares his insight on what it means to be people of God in a global context and the responsibilities that privilege brings to the American Church. He says we have “been in an extended season of slumber…unaware, unconcerned, and uninvolved,” and that now is our time to awaken and live as “difference-makers, empowered by Almighty God.”
Jesus' People | MP3
Sermon delivered by Pastor Malcolm Hedding
July 3, 2016

Associate Pastor Malcolm Hedding says that followers of Jesus are marked by two characteristics: they will seek reconciliation in all of their relationships as much as it is in their power, and they will be dramatically changed through God’s free gift of righteousness. There are three things that we need to avoid, however: legalism, license, and apathy.
Jesus' Friends - Please the Lord | MP3
Sermon delivered by Pastor Allen Jackson
June 26, 2016

One aspect of being a friend of Jesus is living in a way that pleases Him. Pastor Allen shares that for believers to live lives of eternal significance, we must engage the conflict in our own souls more intentionally, then prayerfully live for Him in our homes and in the world. When we do that the Spirit of God will move in our generation in such a way that we will see an awakening in the hearts of our children and those following us.
Eric Metaxas Weekend | MP3
Sermon delivered by Eric Metaxas
June 19, 2016

Eric Metaxas, author of If You Can Keep It: The Forgotten Promise of American Liberty, reminds us of the extraordinary and unprecedented concept of self-government as envisioned by our Founding Fathers―a form of government wholly dependent on the freedom, faith, and virtue of its citizens―and our responsibility to live out these ideals and share them with future generations and the rest of the world.
Jesus' Friends | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
June 12, 2016

Let's Pray - A Great Opportunity | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
June 5, 2016

Like Paul and Silas from a jail cell and Jonah from the belly of the fish, we have an opportunity to go to God during our times of need. Too many have believed that prayer is an expression of incompetence or inadequacy, but even Jesus cried out to His Father and told us to pray as well. God has a plan for us that far exceeds our expectations, but He wants us to come before Him in humility and put our lives in His hands.
Memorial Day | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
May 29, 2016

Remembering is important. Let us remember the lives and lessons of those who have gone before us: Saul of Tarsus, who endured suffering and hardship to became perhaps the greatest advocate for Christ the world has ever known; Solomon, who denied himself nothing his heart desired yet called his possessions meaningless; and the sacrifices of all who have stood a post in defense of our nation.
Let's Pray - Alignment | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
May 22, 2016

We all face challenges and problems that we don’t have the ability to negotiate, and we need a power greater than ourselves. Prayer is not a passive response to life. If you will determine to be a person of prayer, you will bring an alignment into your home, your family, your place of business that will make room for God to do something that He cannot do unless you pray.
Let's Pray - Realms of Authority | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
May 15, 2016

God imagined and created each of us with three aspects—spirit, body, and soul—and effective prayer deals with each of those realms. While the spiritual forces of wickedness and our own sinful natures will oppose God’s plans, He has equipped us with His Spirit and authority to overcome them. God will not violate our will, however, so we must be aware of the opposition and prayerfully and intentionally choose holiness.
Let's Pray-Effective Prayer | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
May 8, 2016

Because Scripture says, “The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much,” we want to pray more effectively. There are specific kinds of prayer, and yielding ourselves to God’s authority and knowing how to express it through prayer in order to accomplish His purposes will significantly change the outcomes of our prayers. Also, Pastor Allen’s mother, Betty, shares her miraculous story of healing and redemption.
Listening & Learning | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
May 1, 2016

Each of us, no matter our stage of life, has mountains—obstacles, hurdles, barriers—to be climbed or otherwise dealt with. But there are passes through those mountains—ideas and behaviors that will help us negotiate the obstacles without having to expend so much energy climbing the heights. Pastor Allen shares powerful promises God made to His people in antiquity that are just as relevant to those who claim them today.
Bold Faith - The Church in the World | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
April 24, 2016

True Christian leadership is when people harness their ambition for the cause of Christ and humbly use their influence for His purposes. However, the world tells us that “church” is fine, but faith is personal: we should leave it within the walls of the building and express it only in the privacy of our homes. As believers, we should have the courage to let our faith influence the broad expression of our lives—from the sanctuary, to the neighborhood, to the marketplace—advocating for Jesus.
Bold Faith - Great Outcomes | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
April 17, 2016

Bold faith is a passion for Jesus that influences every aspect of our lives and is lived out in daily faithfulness to God—in our homes, in purity, integrity, and holiness. When He knows that we can be trusted with honoring Him in our daily routines, He will entrust us with assignments of even greater significance. And there is hope for those who have made ungodly choices and are reaping the consequences: God is able to restore anyone and will elevate the life experiences of those who cooperate with Him.
Bold Faith - People Get Ready | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
April 10, 2016

God has given each of us a revelation of Himself that we can receive, understand, and interpret. But we must choose what to do with it: live as skeptics and cynics or as believers with bold, increasing faith that will allow us to flourish amid challenging times. The Church has a choice to make: Will we demonstrate to the watching world the faith we proclaim inside the walls of the church? Will we be the people of God in this season?
Bold Faith - After the Resurrection | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
April 3, 2016

The Gospel accounts of Jesus’ life make it clear that He had things to accomplish in the forty-day window between His resurrection and ascension to heaven. A significant part of His ministry during that time was to give hope and encouragement to His closest friends, who were disheartened after His death. Pastor Allen shows Scripture’s promises that God is just as close to the brokenhearted today and reminds us that we have the same Source of bold faith Jesus' friends had.
Easter - A Living Faith | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
March 27, 2016

Easter Sunday is more than just a holiday. Easter is the day when Jesus of Nazareth changed everything. It’s the dividing line of human history, not because of the birth of a new expression of faith, but because Jesus through His resurrection secured the power of God to bring freedom and liberty to our lives.
Life After Easter | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
March 20, 2016

Easter is more than an observance of a religious holiday or a historic event. Easter changed everything. Through the redemptive work of Jesus on the cross we have a right standing with God and are declared righteous, justified, and redeemed. Our relationship with Jesus should be the primary descriptor of our lives, and Pastor Allen shares how a believer’s attitude should be marked by repentance, obedience, and Spirit-powered living.
After Easter - Jerusalem | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
March 13, 2016

The revelation of the redemptive work of Jesus is not fully formed in any of us, and every Easter brings an opportunity to experience a new aspect of it. Jesus’ determination to go to Jerusalem to fulfill His Father’s plan and the disciples’ determination to follow Him despite their doubts are examples for us as we press on to fulfill God’s plan for our lives. And His forgiveness and restoration in the midst of our human weakness should cause us to stand for Him with boldness.
Life Giving Word - I Choose Life | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
March 6, 2016

After the Exodus, God’s first revelation to His freed people was of His holiness. God called the Israelites to be holy because He is holy, and He calls us to be holy as well. Holiness is not a burden; it brings purity and freedom because the character of God is being formed within us. It leads us to experience His power and majesty. God will honor our investment in reading His Word by showing us His character and His purposes. If there are burdens and seemingly immovable things in your life, God’s Word will make a pathway.
Life Giving Word | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
February 28, 2016

The first five books of the Bible—known as the Books of Moses or the Pentateuch—are the revelation of the character of God and His holiness and the story of how He delivered and established His people in the earth. The Exodus story and the surrounding events are a foreshadowing of Christ’s redemptive work on the cross. These books should cause us to rejoice in God’s provision of His inspired, authoritative Word and inspire us to a deeper hunger for the things of God.
Let's Pray - Live Lived Well | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
February 21, 2016

We are people of eternity, so why would we commit ourselves to objectives that are limited by time and will fade away? Prayer reaches beyond time to touch eternity and should be the response to all of our personal interactions. When we invest energy and thought into our prayer lives and make the effort to pray for those around us, we let them know that someone in their sphere of influence has a relationship with God and open a window for God’s Spirit to blow across their lives.
Let's Pray - Improving Vision | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
February 14, 2016

Spiritual things are as real as the physical world in which we live; Genesis 1 says that God’s Spirit brought order to the chaos present on earth. Adults are often more comfortable in the rational, physical world, but Jesus said to His followers, “Unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.” Jesus used the example of a child—with a child’s desire to learn and change—as the doorway to significance in His Kingdom. Just as a child wants to learn, we should want to learn how to align ourselves with His purposes.
Let's Pray - The Lord's Prayer | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
February 7, 2016

Prayer matters because evil is in the world and we cannot outthink it or overcome it by the force of our personal will—we need a power greater than ourselves! Thankfully, Scripture gives us blueprints for prayer: Jesus prayed to His Father, so we do as well; and the demons tremble at the name of Jesus, so we pray in His name. When we fail to pray we leave the doors of God’s possibilities closed. But when we commit ourselves to daily, workmanlike prayer, the outcome can benefit all of us. So, “Let’s pray!”
Let's Pray - Prayer 201 | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
January 31, 2016

Prayer is a powerful response to life’s challenges. It opens doorways of God’s possibilities because God hears and responds to the prayers of His people. Prayer is an invitation to each of us to cooperate with His purposes, even when we’re not sure of the outcome. When we interact with the people in our lives by saying “Let’s pray,” we interject invitations to walk with God in a non-threatening way. Pastor Allen reminds us that the same power in the prayers of the Old Testament prophets and the New Testament disciples is available to us today.
Snow Days | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
January 24, 2016

God is the Creator of everything in the universe—including snow! He reveals His existence and His powerful nature as we look at the world. But He is also the Judge who reveals His truth to us, and we are “without excuse” if we ignore it or suppress it or sit silently while others do. Even after we become Christ-followers the battle to “be like God” rages inside us—to live under our own authority and give glory to ourselves. Surrounded by the quietness of a snowfall, we are reminded that the same God who created and cares for our world cares for each of us and is due all honor and glory.
Prepared, Invested and Aligned - God is Our Rock | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
January 17, 2016

We live in a season of unprecedented change. Institutions, ideologies, and values that are the very fabric of who we are as a people are being shaken before our eyes. The shaking isn’t being done by demonic forces--God is shaking the earth to show that when all the things we have put our trust in have tumbled and fallen, His eternal, unshakable kingdom will still be standing. We have a generational responsibility to help those who will come after us know our God-story: that our trust in Him is unwavering, and we are not bound by fear of the future.
Prepared, Invested and Aligned | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
January 10, 2016

The Church of today gathers as part of an innumerable group from across the centuries, from every continent, every nation, every tribe and tongue. We are defined and united by our loyalty to Jesus and our commitment to advance His cause. Scripture reminds us that our generation of Christ-followers has the privilege of running the same race as those who have come before us, and gives us valuable insight in how to overcome and persevere as we live in a sin-filled world.
Leftovers, Again - Sustaining a Life of Faith | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
January 3, 2016

The kingdom of God is not of this world, but it is more real and more glorious than any nation on the earth. The only way to participate is to acknowledge Jesus as Messiah and choose Him as Lord. And when we do that, a lifelong process of change begins—from the inside out. Pastor Allen shares the steps required to walk toward spiritual maturity and challenges us to commit to a lifestyle of spiritual transformation.
Leftovers | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
December 27, 2015

Spiritual food is much like physical food—no matter how well we eat today we will still be hungry tomorrow. The same is true for the cycle of spiritual weariness and rest. We should be running life’s spiritual race with the intention of winning, not just getting a participation prize, and that can be exhausting. But God is full of compassion, and Scripture promises that He will give “everything we need for life and godliness” (2 Pet. 1:3), including strength for the weary.
Preparing for Christmas - God of Salvation | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
December 20, 2015

Following God is beyond our intellect, and it will take every ounce of ability and focus we have. Like Mary, the mother of Jesus, and Elizabeth, the mother of John the Baptist, if we will bring our best to the Lord and add to that faith in Him, He will invite us into a life that is more fulfilling than we can know in any other way. Pastor Allen challenges us to say yes to God, then make the Holy Spirit welcome and celebrate what He is doing in our lives.
Preparing for Christmas - When God Steps In | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
December 13, 2015

God chose two unlikely couples to accomplish His purposes: Elizabeth and Zechariah to be the parents of John the Baptist, and Mary and Joseph to be the earthly parents of Jesus. Both couples faced circumstances that they didn’t choose and couldn’t control, but they chose to honor God and believe His promises and were used by Him. We too can yield to Him and choose the path of faith that will put us in a position to be used by God to accomplish His purposes.
Acts - Faith in Motion - Set Apart for God | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
December 6, 2015

Much of American Christianity is centered on the idea that the Christian life revolves around the act of reciting a prayer. While believers indeed experience a new birth in Christ, we also are set apart to “grow up” and mature in the Lord. Whatever season of life we are in, we should determine to live it for the purposes and glory of God by serving Him and responding to the divine opportunities He places before us.
Acts - Faith in Motion - Paradigm Shift | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
November 29, 2015

In Acts 10 God sent a reluctant Peter to the pagan city Caesarea for the purpose of moving the Jesus-story beyond the Jewish people. In Acts 11 Peter explains to Jewish believers how God called him to take the Gospel to those who were considered unclean, then describes the Spirit’s glorious work among them. Like Peter, we each have been prepared by God to fulfill our role in advancing His purposes in the earth. Are you ready to place yourself in a position of dependence on God and walk forward, knowing the outcome is in His hands?
Acts - Faith in Motion - Leaders Make a Difference | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
November 22, 2015

The Jesus story forever changes in Acts 10 when God chooses to work through an elite Roman soldier named Cornelius. Even though he was in a position of command and authority, he was God-fearing, generous, prayerful, humble, and a man of great faith. Like Cornelius, we must recognize that spiritual maturity is reflected in a humble, generous spirit that honors God, and then live in the reality that this earthly life is preparation for the life to come.
Acts - Faith in Motion - The Power of Sacrifice | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
November 15, 2015

We all have plans for our lives, but they may not be what God wants us to do. Sacrificing our dreams and hopes for God’s invitations may not seem logical, but we can do it in His strength, knowing the outcome will be worth it. Do you have the courage to ask Him to interrupt your plans and help you write a new future? Are you willing to leave behind the familiar and the comfortable and embrace the risk of following a divine invitation?
Not a Fish Story | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
November 8, 2015

Luke the physician, in the gospel of Luke and the book of Acts, tells the Jesus-story from His birth to His ascension and the story of Jesus’ followers from His ascension through the church’s exciting early years. In order to be a dynamic church like in the book of Acts, we must submit to the same life transformation the disciples experienced in the gospel of Luke and allow ourselves to be used as God’s ambassadors in this generation.
Acts - Faith in Motion - Learning is Awkward | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
November 1, 2015

The book of Acts helps us understand how to be Christ-followers in our generation. Maturing as a Christ-follower, however, and allowing the character of Christ to be formed in us is a very awkward, less than intuitive process--learning God-responses and the character of Christ and becoming familiar with the Person of the Holy Spirit. The book of Acts helps us with this and gives us the courage we need to be the twenty-first century edition of the book of Acts!
Acts - Faith in Motion - Significance of Prayer | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
October 25, 2015

We see in the examples of Jesus’ prayers how vital prayer is to faith and ministry, and that same emphasis on prayer is continued throughout the Book of Acts in the work of the early Church. We are the continuing the story of Acts today, and prayer is an important tool as we fulfill our assignments as Christ-followers. When we pray we are asking for the power of the Holy Spirit to be released within us to bring about God’s purposes in our lives.
Acts - Living Faith - Fear of the Lord | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
October 18, 2015

As social contexts change and empires rise and fall, the Church of Jesus Christ continues forward in the earth. But every significant move of God has been accompanied by the fear of the Lord—a sense of respect and reverence for God and recognition of His sovereignty. This is shown through the Bible’s accounts of Moses and David and Peter and others. God is actively involved in our lives as well, and Scripture gives us insight into how to honor Him so that we will thrive both in time and eternity.
Acts - Faith in Motion - Believers in Motion | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
October 11, 2015

The book of Acts is the story of the impact of the redemptive work of Jesus upon humanity. It tells the story of Jesus from His ascension to our assignment as Christ-followers. We are living the book of Acts— we are assigned the same charge today as those before us. Acts helps us imagine what God might do through our lives.
Take God Seriously | MP3
Sermon delivered by Phillip Jackson
October 4, 2015

God has redeemed us and called us to a holy calling, and when God calls us to something He will provide the grace that enables us to accomplish what He wants us to do. Our lives are not limited by our abilities and experiences or the lack of either—the potential for our lives is wrapped up in the grace of God. He is faithful to work out in us what He has called us toward.
The Most Abundant Life - Live Generously | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
September 27, 2015

Generosity changes your life. When you practice generosity of spirit you release a spiritual force that pushes away negativity and makes it possible for something positive to flourish in its place. The act of giving—in forgiveness, attention, time, resources—makes space for God to respond with an abundance of peace and blessings in your life.
The Most Abundant Life - The Character of God | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
September 20, 2015

Get to know the character of God; it will protect you from deception. The character of God—His faithfulness, justice, mercy, and generosity toward us—is the anchor for our lives when we follow Him as Lord. God wants good things for His children, both under the sun and in eternity; the more fully we cooperate with Him, the better our lives will be.

The Most Abundant Life - Our Awesome God | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
September 6, 2015

The security of our lives is inseparable from what we identify as the source of our lives. What distinguishes the God we serve from all others is that He is the creator and designer of everything in existence. Pastor Allen invites us to the freedom that comes with understanding that God our Creator is the source and the sustainer of our lives.
Discerning What is Next - God Watches Over Us | Part 3 | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
August 30, 2015

The essence of prophecy is God’s perspective on the season in which we are living. Pastor Allen continues his message on the signs of the times, submitting that we are seeing the beginning stages of what Jesus said would happen. The security of our lives in every season comes from Almighty God; we want to be fully invested in service to Him.

Discerning What is Next - God is Watching Over Us | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
August 16, 2015

Pastor Allen believes that God is shaking the earth and that the Church must live with an awareness of what He is doing. Two things are happening simultaneously: God is gathering the Jewish people to their homeland and He is preparing and purifying His Church. One thing is certain—when nations declare there is no god, our God is watching over us.
The Blessing of Trials | MP3
Sermon delivered by Malcolm Hedding
August 9, 2015

The nature of our spiritual life is not regulated by outward factors or circumstances. Pastor Hedding teaches from the first chapter of Paul’s letter to the Philippians, which enables believers to understand how our trials are producing a harvest of righteousness.
Thriving | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
August 2, 2015

God’s intent for His people is not that we would just survive, but that we would thrive as Christ-followers. Godliness is something we train for to obtain. Pastor Allen gives us some tools for training—God’s Word in our hearts and the help of the Holy Spirit will help us to be overcomers.
The Glory of the Lord | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
July 19, 2015

When the Church is awakened to the glory of God, a powerful transformation takes place. Pastor Allen challenges us to yield to the lordship of Jesus Christ in order that God’s power and glory may be made evident within us. We have a message of Hope to share with those in our sphere of influence and it is secured by the throne of God Almighty.
The Land of Israel - Covenant People | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
July 12, 2015

God is doing two things simultaneously: He is regathering the Jewish people to the land of Israel and He is purifying His Church all over the world. Pastor Allen talks about the current status of Israel and how that relates to the purposes of God in our nation and the world. As the Church of Jesus Christ, we are in the earth for God’s purposes to come forth; the Church is the conscience of our culture.
Abiding in Christ | MP3
Sermon delivered by Malcolm Hedding
July 5, 2015

Associate Pastor, Malcolm Hedding, submits that the determining factor of our Christian life is a real and continual union between the Christ-follower and his crucified Lord. It is the power of our relationship with God. Jesus called this abiding in Him--a fixed position of deliverance from sin's destruction, resulting in power and effectiveness. As we appropriate what the Lord accomplished on the cross, we abide in Him and dwell in increasing blessing and fruitfulness. It is a place of restoration.
Got Hope? | MP3
Sermon delivered by Phillip Jackson
June 28, 2015

Faith results in works, love results in labor, and hope results in endurance. Without hope, our faith will subside and our love will fail. Hope is provided in the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead; believers are given a helmet of hope through salvation when we choose to follow Him.
Unleashing the Power of the Holy Spirit - Welcome | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
June 21, 2015

We need God’s power at work in our lives to help us, and His power is inseparable from the presence of His Holy Spirit. God invites us to welcome the Holy Spirit into our lives without reservation or precondition. Saying to the Holy Spirit, You are welcome in my life, will unleash the power of Almighty God within us.
Unleashing the Power of the Holy Spirit - Life in the Spirit | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
June 14, 2015

When we choose Christ as Lord, we are born of the Spirit—the new birth—and the Holy Spirit lives in us. As spiritual beings we live in a tension between time and eternity, so we must welcome the person of the Holy Spirit without measure if we are going to have the power of God we need to live on earth as mature Christ-followers investing in eternity.
Unleashing the Power of the Holy Spirit - Clothed with Power | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
June 7, 2015

Jesus’ desire for His followers is to be clothed with the power of the Holy Spirit, which brings transformation. The clear invitation of Scripture to us is that we open our hearts to the power of the Holy Spirit. His power in our lives equips us to live holy before God and to be effective witnesses for the Gospel of Christ.
Unleashing the Power of the Holy Spirit - The Desert Places | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
May 31, 2015

We all experience dry, desert seasons—physically, emotionally, financially, relationally. Trusting God for a breakthrough necessitates cooperating with the power and Person of God’s Holy Spirit. It begins with a desire to honor Jesus and an unconditional, heartfelt prayer: Holy Spirit, You are welcome in my life. The Holy Spirit can lead us through our desert places with greater power than we have ever known before.
Unleashing the Power of the Holy Spirit | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
May 24, 2015

Seeing Jesus | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
May 17, 2015

The birth of Jesus brought good news of great joy for all people, but sometimes as Christ-followers we get caught up in something other than good news. We’re living in a time when living without a God-perspective is a vulnerable place to stand. Pastor Allen encourages us to ask God to give us the ability to see what He is doing in the world and to prepare our hearts to participate with Him. Take time to look around you and identify the “good things” with thanksgiving.
A Mother's Prompting | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
May 10, 2015

Motherhood is a position of tremendous influence, both in the home and in our culture, and it begins with cooperation with God’s purposes. As Pastor Allen talks to us about the importance of a mothers influence we learn that being intentional to use your influence to steer those in your sphere toward the things of God can make a Kingdom difference.
Learning to Stand - Privilege of Choice | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
May 3, 2015

As an expression of His grace in our lives, God has given us a free will. To live abundantly as Christ-followers, we must make choices that add God-momentum to our lives, beginning with yielding to the authority of His Word. God’s Word directs us toward choices that enable us to live victoriously and give Him our best.

Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson

Learning to Stand - A Matter of Faith | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
April 19, 2015

God has given to every believer a measure of faith; what we do with it will cause us either to grow or to diminish as Christ-followers. Making Jesus the object of our faith and following the examples He gave us throughout the Gospels, we can stand against the adversary that is scheming against us to neutralize our faith.
Learning to Stand - Defeating Fear | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
April 12, 2015

As Christ-followers, we must learn to stand against fear that would limit and control us. When we develop trust in the promises of God to bring deliverance, we are able to be courageous in the midst of every circumstance. Unbelief gives motion to our fears, but faith that is anchored in God’s Word brings activity to belief, defeating any fear that would dominate our lives.

Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
March 29, 2015

Good News for All People - Riots & Revival | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
March 22, 2015

We see in the book of Acts that persecution led to a disbursement of Christ-followers throughout the region, resulting in the Gospel’s being preached among the many communities of faith that make up most of the New Testament. The price of the awakening was severe, but the supernatural involvement of God continued to strengthen the faithful.
Good News for All People - Gentiles Included | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
March 15, 2015

The Jesus-story is not about a movement of perfect people. Though the Gospel of Christ was spread among the Jews in the beginning, God chose a vicious persecutor of Christ-followers, Saul of Tarsus, to take the message to the Gentiles. Then Peter, following the direction of the Holy Spirit, preached the good news to the household of a Roman centurion and witnessed the Holy Spirit descend on them as it had on the Jewish believers at Pentecost.
Good News for All People - Fasting and Praying | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson

Good News for All People - Jerusalem Awakening | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
March 1, 2015

The city of Jerusalem has great significance in God’s eternal purposes.

When the Church is awakened to the significance of the Holy Spirit, the purposes of Almighty God will be accomplished among us in this day.
Good News for All People - Jesus' Birth and Death | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
February 22, 2015

The Gospels are not the beginning of a “new faith” or a “new story”; they are the fulfillment of the story we have been following since Genesis. At just the right time in the unfolding of the history of humanity, God sent His Son so that we could receive the right to become children of God. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is Good News!

Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
February 1, 2015

Continuing with the premise that there are nonnegotiable characteristics of an effective church, Pastor Allen looks at God’s infinite creativity and innovation in building His Kingdom. No two churches are the same; we must focus on the heart of the matter—a compassion for people.
The Church in the World - "Nonnegotiables" | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
January 11, 2015

We—the Church of Jesus Christ—have an assignment to influence our world. We must be a redeeming place where broken people can experience the grace and power of a transforming God. We must declare Jesus as Lord and embrace truth of God’s Word. Pastor Allen shares ways of helping us be the Church in the world.
The Church in the World | MP3
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
January 4, 2015

The Church of Jesus Christ is the most powerful force on earth for the transformation of human good, but it faces great challenges today. Our assignment as believers is to strengthen the Church by giving preeminence to the person of Jesus Christ in our lives and being unwavering in our advocacy for Him in our own spheres of influence.
