Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
September 28, 2014

Pastor Allen continues with a study of the Hebrew prophets, highlighting the Wisdom Literature (Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Solomon). Most of these writings were likely composed during the period when Israel was a united nation, but not compiled into books until the period of exile when it was especially vital for the Israelites to record their history. This beautiful and moving literature engages us in a God-perspective yet today.
The Hebrew Prophets - Exile & A Future | CD
Sermon delivered by Allen Jackson
September 21, 2014

Pastor Allen continues with a study of the Hebrew prophets. The Hebrews are in captivity, but this period of exile was as much about Godís involvement with them as was the exodus from Egypt.

Sermon delivered by G. Allen Jackson
February 16, 2014

Pastor Allen Jackson teaches on the importance and relevance in todayís world of the first five books of the Bible, known as the Books of Moses. Although they may be viewed as just a collection of laws and regulations, in the big picture, or macro view, of these books, we find key principles that still apply to our lives today. The rules presented in these books are to teach the people how to thrive. They are not an attempt to confine or limit, but are created to bring ultimate freedom. As we read these books, we see these same values taught to the Israelites thousands of years ago are ones that we must still choose today.

Sermon delivered by G. Allen Jackson
February 2, 2014

Overview for all weeks of the New Years Series Being a 21st century disciple requires a great deal of maturity in our spiritual lives. Pastor Allen introduces a Life Plan for Christians who desire to grow and witness more. We must commit to being lifelong learners of Godís word and to do this requires training and practice, as with any other endeavor and putting our knowledge into action by witnessing and being modern day disciples. Unlike retiring from a job, being a practitioner of sharing the Gospel does not allow for us to stop practicing. The only time we can stop or retire from this practice is when our earthly lives end. Our motivation through difficult days is the reward that is ours in Christ Jesus.

Preparing for a New Year - A Good Start | CD
Sermon delivered by G. Allen Jackson
January 12, 2014

Pastor Allen Jacksonís sermon helps us narrow down our checklists for a New Year and include four very important action points to gain confidence, growth, and momentum in our God journeys this year. By offering ourselves as a living sacrifice to the Lord, we participate in an act of worship pleasing to Him. Additionally, when we put our confidence in the Lord, not in ourselves, we show maturity in our walks. Another key to growth is having a community of believers, such as a small group, to be a source of encouragement and motivation. Learning to be a generous giver is also important. This year, begin to make the steps to check off these items from your list as we mature in our faith together in 2014.
Preparing for a New Year | CD
Sermon delivered by G. Allen Jackson
January 5, 2014

Pastor Allen Jackson uses the story of Elijah and Jezebel to illustrate how people can respond to a God event, and even a supernatural one. Not everyone will repent and believe. Additionally, not everyone will respond in faith moving forward from the God events theyíve experienced. Receiving from God and maintaining what we receive are very different things. Even though Elijah was a part of some amazing supernatural God experiences, he still was afraid when Jezebel threatened his life. Likewise, despite having heard that Elijah had executed all of the false prophets, Jezebel wasnít willing to repent. Pastor Allen discusses maintaining the momentum of our God events and avoid being delayed, disrupted, or distracted by our adversary, Satan.
Prayers for our Community | CD
Sermon delivered by G. Allen Jackson
December 29, 2013

Pastor Allen Jackson delivers this message in a small group meeting style. He discusses five distinct needs that occur in the lives of our church family. He prays on behalf of the people in our community; for the sick and the weary and those struggling with sin. We are also reminded of the importance of praising God for our victories and being able to obey in places where God has called us to His assignments. These prayers for physical and spiritual healing are vital tools for all to have in their spiritual portfolio.

Christmas Gifts - God Sent His Son | CD
Sermon delivered by G. Allen Jackson
December 15, 2013

This week Pastor Allen discusses the gift of Jesus. He is the point of differentiation among all religions. Jesus is the difference-maker. In truly receiving Jesus, we see that he is relatable. Jesus understands us, our problems, and our joys because he walked through them too. Some may have an impression of Jesus as meek and quiet, but instead we see him as powerful because he took Godís cup for him and chose to put away the power that he could have wielded. He had alternatives, but he chose to trust his Father in heaven and bore our sins on a tree so that we could receive healing and life and live for righteousness.
Christmas Gifts - The Gifts of Forgiveness | CD
Sermon delivered by G. Allen Jackson
December 8, 2013

Godís gift in this lesson is forgiveness. Forgiveness, both given and received, requires a heart of brokenness to reach true repentance and a heart of humility to ask forgiveness. Forgiveness is a choice, not an emotion. Forgiveness is not dependent on someone deserving it; it is about cancelling a debt and expecting nothing in return. Unforgiveness creates bondage; forgiveness breaks those chains and brings freedom. Our ability to forgive can be exponentially changed when we realize how much we need to be forgiven.
Christmas Gifts | CD
Sermon delivered by G. Allen Jackson
December 1, 2013

Over the course of four weeks, Pastor Allen introduces the Christmas gifts that God has for his people. Reap the benefits of gifts requires the ability and knowledge to receive. The gift of righteousness is received by accepting Jesus as Lord of your life. Only through the divine exchange on the Cross, where Jesus took the penalty for our sins, can we receive the righteousness that was due to Jesus. When we confess our sins, and receive His gifts with appreciation and humility, God purifies us from all unrighteousness and leave us with no blemish before Him.

Sermon delivered by G. Allen Jackson
October 20, 2013

Pastor Allen leads us in a study of Luke 8:41-48, the scriptures which tell the story of a woman, sick for many years, who touches the hem of Jesusí garment while he is walking through the city on his way to heal the daughter of synagogue ruler. We learn through Pastorís teaching, that this scripture is not only a story about the miraculous, healing power of Jesus, but also about His compassion for real, flawed people like ourselves. In addition to Jesusí compassion in this scripture, we also see the perseverance of a woman who is desperate for a miracle. In order to reach her Healer, she had to make a decision to overcome all the obstacles, both physical and social, that were in her way. Do you believe that the decisions we make toward God can unleash power in our lives? Listen as Pastor Allen teaches us that our decisions and our perseverance to follow God will help to keep us motivated toward the Harvest that is coming.
Empowered - For A Purpose
Sermon delivered by G. Allen Jackson
October 13, 2013

There are three components needed for having the power of God in our lives. Our assignments are to be servants, to engage the culture, and to defend the culture. If we are willing to accept these assignments, we can have access to Godís power. As servants, we must follow the example of the ultimate servant, Jesus. Accept this assignment of serving the Living God as the highest honor we could have in our lives. To win others to Christ, we have to engage the culture and present the Gospel in a way that people can receive it. When we respond to the calling of servant and take the Gospel to others, God empowers us and our church.

Extraordinary God - God Reveals | CD
Sermon delivered by G. Allen Jackson
September 15, 2013

God still provides revelation into His character and His purposes just as He did long ago. These revelations are necessary in our lives to build our faith and help us believe. We can ask God to reveal Himself to us in new ways. This realignment of our beliefs opens us to learn new lessons. Once we have asked God for a new revelation of Him, we must also realize that there are responsibilities to this request. We cannot treat what we learn casually, but must be willing to share our revelation and the power that comes with it with others in our sphere of influence.
Extraordinary God - God is Concerned | CD
Sermon delivered by G. Allen Jackson
September 8, 2013

An extraordinary life emerges from a relationship with an extraordinary God. We must are called to serve an almighty God, recognizing that does not exempt us from difficulties and trials of living in a fallen world. Even the apostles were persecuted for proclaiming the Good News. Choosing a God path is not a guarantee one always smooth and without difficulty. We serve at the pleasure of the Lord. There will be a reward for our willingness to serve him.
Extraordinary God - Almighty God | CD
Sermon delivered by G. Allen Jackson
September 1, 2013

Pastor Allen presents an invitation to have a personal relationship with a unique God. There are no other gods like Him and we are to choose which God we will serve. Choosing this relationship requires yielding in ways that may be new, uncomfortable or even difficult. Look at the past reveals how God carried past generations through difficult times and, He will do the same for us today. Pastor Allen challenges us to deliberately choose a God direction and learn to trust the Lord, not the world.
Prophetic Insight - The Window of Revelation | CD
Sermon delivered by G. Allen Jackson
August 25, 2013

Pastor Allen invites us to look at the prophecies of God as windows. Like a window, through which we only see what is in front of us, the Bible only gives us glimpses of the future. We should not view those windows as limiting, but as protection. God also protects us by not giving us more information than we can handle. Through prophetic scripture, especially in the book of Revelation, we are given glimpses of the end times so we can gauge where we are now and know what to expect as end times draw nearer. Pastor Allen encourages us to be open to Godís word and His prophecy, and receive His truth, which prepares us for the days ahead.
Prophetic Insight - God is Not Surprised | CD
Sermon delivered by G. Allen Jackson
August 18, 2013

This series aligns a fascinating world history lesson with the Bible scriptures that foretold these historical events. We can use Godís prophetic word as a guide between the beginning and the end. In the scriptures, we can determine what has already happened, what is happening now, and what will is still to come. Pastor Allenís sermons addresse the events that must happen in order to fulfill the prophecies about the end times, which of those events have already occurred, and what is our part in seeing these prophecies become reality.
Prophetic Insight - Listening to God | CD
Sermon delivered by G. Allen Jackson
August 11, 2013

In the first of his 3-part series on Prophecy, Pastor Allen invites us to step away from any skepticism we may have toward God or toward prophecy and learn to be great listeners. We must accept the Word of God as complete Truth. Then we must be able to listen to His word, apply it to our lives, and obey what it says. Godís word can bring us amazing power if we let it. Scripture tells us that if we listen and obey, we can receive wisdom, knowledge, understanding, victory, a shield, a guard, and protection on our journey. Additionally, there is a cleansing and a transformation when we open our hearts to the word of God. Pastor Allen encourages us to choose to be open to Godís word and His prophecy so that we can receive His truth, which will prepare us for the days ahead.
The Greatest Story Ever Told | CD
Sermon delivered by Malcolm Hedding
August 4, 2013

The Bible tells the greatest story ever told, one of redemption and love. Pastor Malcolm Hedding compares Abrahamís obedient willingness to sacrifice Isaac to Godís willingness to sacrifice Jesus for our Sins. In examining Abrahamís obedience to sacrifice Isaaac and Jesusí death on the Cross, we see that there Abraham answered faithfully several ďcallsĒ from the Lord, which he wasnít actually asked to fulfill because God provided the lamb needed for Abrahamís sacrifice, just as he provided Jesus as the ultimate sacrificial lamb later in history. In this very informative sermon, we learn that Godís calling on Abraham set the stage for Jesus to be able to redeem the world.

Sermon delivered by Phillip Jackson
June 30, 2013

In this sermon, Pastor Phillip Jackson shares Christ-followers can firmly plant their feet upon ďtwo mountain peaksĒ of Godís truth Ė the cross and the coming of the Lord. Jesus Christ defeated Satan on the cross and Jesus is returning to His spotless Bride, the Church. Applying the work of the cross with trust and obeying Godís revealed truth frees us from the accusation of guilt and shame. Receiving Godís forgiveness and extending it to others is essential. The cross of Jesus Christ brings freedom to our lives.
The Ministry of Reconciliation | CD
Sermon delivered by Malcolm Headding
June 23, 2013

Pastor Malcolm Hedding teaches about reconciliation and its role in our lives as Christ followers. Reconciliation is a three part process: recognition of the the need; how reconciliation occurs, and the consequences of reconciling ourselves with the Lord. Because we live in a fallen world, our disobedience and sin creates the need to be reconciled. Our rebellion separates us from God's presence, His pleasure, likeness, and protection. We come back into God's presence is by Jesus' work through the Cross. Not only did Jesus take the punishment owed for all our sin, but He also removed the influence and power of the devil in our lives.
Life Lessons from a Father | CD
Sermon delivered by G. Allen Jackson
June 16, 2013

In this sermon from Fatherís Day, Pastor Allen shares valuable lessons learned from his own father -- finishing a job that has been started, doing one's best, understanding the value of work, telling the truth and others. For many people, God's role as Father is one of the most difficult roles to accept. But Jesus revealed his Father to us as our father too. It is the relationship that God chose for himself to share with all of humanity. The relationship of God the Father to his children is the model for fathers on earth. Fatherhood is a serious God-given assignment for men.
Lessons in Renewal - Hezekiah Challenged | CD
Sermon delivered by G. Allen Jackson
June 9, 2013

Hezekiah was a king who ďdid what was right in the eyes of the Lord.Ē Yet, this king received opposition in the form of an Assyrian king who wanted to take over Judah. Pastor Allen continues ďRenewal,Ē by examining the life of Hezekiah, a man who continued to pray and do what was right in the face of great adversity. Hezekiah experienced negativity from the king of Assyria, much like the voices of opposition we hear today. Hezekiah continued to pray and believe during grave danger and God answered his prayer, defeating the Assyrian armies. Godís response to Hezekiah demonstrates there is a direct correlation between prayer and a God response. Our prayers matter and our steadfastness is essential.
Lessons in Renewal | CD
Sermon delivered by G. Allen Jackson
June 2, 2013

Pastor Allen brings us lessons from Hezekiah, a king who led his people to turn back to the Lord after a long season of walking away from God. King Hezekiah ďdid what was right in the eyes of the Lord.Ē This response takes great intentionality in the daily choices. God is aware and is paying attention to us. Regardless of our background, God can use us to make a difference in His kingdom. Real, meaningful change starts with those who have been called by the Lord. Pastor Allen urges us to be the generation who brings this kind of change in our nation by starting with ourselves and our areas of influence.
A Lamp for Our Feet | CD
Sermon delivered by G. Allen Jackson
May 26, 2013

Pastor Allen brings insight from the life of Josiah, one of the many kings of Israel. Much can be learned from the bold actions this king after realizing how far his country had strayed from God. Not only did Josiah ask his people to turn from their rebellion, he did so repeatedly and publicly. Although Josiah did what was right in the eyes of the Lord to cleanse his country from its idolatry, God still had to bring his righteous judgment to His people. There are many parallels in King Josiahís story and in our world today. God is looking for people today who will rise up and take a stand for what is right according to His laws and who will begin the steps of turning our nation back toward the Biblical principles upon which it was founded.
An Extraordinary Life - The Pursuit of an Extraordinary God | CD
Sermon delivered by G. Allen Jackson
May 20, 2013

In examining George and Betty Jacksonís new book, An Extraordinary Life, Pastor Allen shares lessons he learned from his familyís God journey. Our job in life is to grow closer to the Lord. The best way we can do that is to imitate expressions of faith from those who have walked ahead of us on difficult paths.

Pastor Jim Widemanís Mother's Day message was based on lessons he learned from his own Godly mother.

Jesus Lessons | CD
Sermon delivered by G. Allen Jackson
May 5, 2013

Pastor Allen shares what he learned from his relationship with Angus Buchan. Truly experiencing and knowing God comes from being in relationship with His people; look to those succeeding in their walks with the Lord. Angus is an ordinary potato farmer from South Africa, but God has used him in extraordinary ways for His Kingdom. By exploring what Angus has done right, we learn that we must diminish the cannot and expand the can. We also need to have a humble, self-correcting attitude. By living a self-controlled life, led by the Holy Spirit, and willing to make sacrifices, Angus teaches we must not ever give up, but continue to "press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.Ē
Freedom from Worry - New Thoughts, New Feelings | CD
Sermon delivered by G. Allen Jackson
April 28, 2013

In his four-part series, "Freedom From Worry," Pastor Allen addresses the topic of worry and its effects on our lives. In Matthew 6:25-34, Jesus tells us four times not to worry. Worry was as much a part of people's lives in Jesus' time as it is today. Yet, Jesus is still commanding us to not worry, but to trust in the Lord. In a time when worry, anxiety and fear are epidemic in our society, Pastor Allen stresses the fact that worry is a sin that will, in time, erode God's best or our lives. Worry and faith are directly related. Giving in to our worries causes us to believe what WE think, feel and believe over what God says, thinks, and has for us. This makes a god out of ourselves and strangles our faith, leaving us weak and unable to stand. Thankfully, Pastor Allen reassures us that if Jesus tells us not to do something, He has also given us the power not do it. That power comes in our ability to have a greater awareness of eternity. By embracing the gift of the Holy Spirit, we can have the power, love, and peace of mind that God provides for us. This transfer of trust that must take place in order for us to gain freedom from worry can only occur through time spent daily with the Lord, forgiveness of others, letting go of our past failures, and allowing ourselves to dream.

Easter Surprises | CD
Sermon delivered by G. Allen Jackson
March 31, 2013

Pastor Allen focuses this Easter sermon on ďEaster SurprisesĒ that are beyond our imagination. In order to receive all God has for us, we must embrace a change that requires a ďchild-likeĒ faith, but avoiding ďchildishĒ behaviors. He asks us to look at Jesusí response to the Cross. Jesus was not worried, fearful, or anxious about His circumstances -- those responses are only temptations, not requirements for the troubles that come. If we give in to those feelings, we choke out the opportunities and the joys that God has for us in this world. By becoming ďchild-likeĒ in our faith, we decide to trust Jesus and put our lives in Godís hands.

Training ourselves to respond in intentional ways takes practice and consistency.

Experiencing God is the Churchís primary objective - becoming a people of prayer, reading our Bibles, telling our God-story.

Guest speaker, Lance Lambert, is one of the most distinguished international Bible scholars and speakers in Israel today. A period of unprecedented turmoil and spiritual darkness lies before this world, possibly in our day. This message urges the Church to awaken and become prepared: to take up the entire armor of God - abiding continually in the Lord - in readiness to stand in faith against evil. Intercession is elemental to this process - to know the purpose and will of God, being strong in the Lord and the power of His might. The Church of Jesus Christ is destined to be a city of light set upon a hill, growing brighter in a darkening world.

Guest speaker, Lance Lambert, is one of the most distinguished international Bible scholars and speakers in Israel today.

God is still calling those whom He loves - yielding to Godís lovingkindness delivers us into His abundant blessings.

Developing a self-correcting attitude and forgiveness is crucial. A second characteristic is a contagious, trusting belief in a Living God and His word.

Pastor Allen Jackson speaks about his recent trip to Israel and the faith that is stirred by the living evidence of Godís faithfulness. He emphasizes the Kingdom of God has seasons and the importance of knowing the season in which we live. It will determine our response to what God is doing in the earth. Israel and the Middle East display several season-indicators Ė enormous pressures on every front with simultaneous great spiritual progress Ė birth pangs in the midst of great change, vulnerability, and fear combined with hope for a new future. This is a birth-season of Godís principles in all the earth, and our individual and national response to these pressures and progress is crucial. Pastor Allen presents an action plan.
Just Say Yes to Saying No | CD
Sermon delivered by Jim Wideman
June 24, 2012

Next Generation Pastor Jim Wideman explores learning to say yes to saying no. From toddler age, we are told ďnoĒ. Cooperating with that instructive warning is not intuitive, even when it comes from God. As Christ-followers, saying ďyesĒ to Godís counsel empowers us to say ďnoĒ to ungodly enticements. It takes believing Godís plan for our life is the best. Jesus modeled that perfectly throughout His life and ministry - ďyesĒ to the authority and Word of His Heavenly Father and ďnoĒ to the devilís temptations; ďyesĒ to a personal relationship with God, His Father, and ďnoĒ to manmade religious dictates. Choosing to cooperate with God brings good things to our lives.

June 17, 2012

This series concludes by examining Jesusí passionate expression of friendship toward us.† Jesusí servant hood to His friends in the face of betrayal, rejection, torture, and crucifixion accomplished a transforming work for all those who would be His friend.† Jesus was punished that we might be forgiven and died that we might share His life.† This expression of friendship demands a response.† Yielding and cooperating with Jesusí finished work on earth and His Holy Spirit will bring us to a place of abundant life.† We want to cultivate the desire to be Jesusí friend and honor His passionate expression of His friendship.

Jesus' Friend | CD
Sermon delivered by G. Allen Jackson
June 3, 2012

This three-part series focuses on the heart of being a Christ-follower - being Jesusí friend in a manner that brings Him the greatest honor.† Nurturing that desire develops increasing passion for the things God is passionate for and begs the question: ďWhat would I do for a friend?Ē† Respecting the sovereignty of Jesus and honoring Him as Lord is essential.† That begins with three simple principles: The Birth Principle Ė experiencing spiritual birth into the Kingdom of God; The Principle of First Things Ė Kingdom greatness through servant hood; The Principle of Small Things Ė honoring Jesus when no one is watching in the smallest places of our lives, cultivating a lifestyle of yielding and giving.

Kingdoms & Authority | CD
Sermon delivered by G. Allen Jackson
May 27, 2012 PM

Jesus Christ makes His authority available to every Christ-follower.† Our response to His authority and assignment has privileges gained as we yield, and consequences incurred when we rebel.† Adam rebelled and forfeited the authority God had given him, bringing about a kingdom directly opposed to Godís purposes.† Today, life-challenges come to us as a result of this kingdom-conflict.† We need the help of the Holy Spirit to recognize the source of these challenges and Jesusí authority to set us free.† Godís strength, authority, and power bring peace that enables us to be a transforming force in the earth.

May 20, 2012

This series concludes with a message from Pastor Malcolm Hedding in overview of three entities Ė Israel, the Church, and the nations Ė and their interaction with one another within the realm of their God-given roles and function. Pastor Hedding shares perspective on how God views the world Ė Israel, One Called People; the Church, One Called People; the Nations, One Collision of Peoples. The Christ-followerís challenge in this climatic moment in history is to understand Godís purposes for Israel, the Church, and their nations and diligently pray in agreement with God for His intent.
Israel, the Church and the Nations - Allen Jackson | CD
Sermon delivered by G. Allen Jackson
May 19, 2012

This series continues as Pastor Allen Jackson explores the significance of Israel Ė chosen as His own and uniquely blessed; a people to whom Christ-followers owe a great debt. This message also focuses Jesus and His Church Ė a body unified ďin ChristĒ with Jesus as the head, commissioned for the purposes of God, and in unique relationship to Israel. The discussion extends to the nations Ė used by the God of creation to display His ultimate authority and rule. Understanding and embracing Godís perspective on Israel, His Church, and the nations matters and protects us from deception - it will bring meaning, purpose, and value to our lives.

You Have A Mighty Source - Return & Rebuild | CD
Sermon delivered by G. Allen Jackson
May 13, 2012 PM

The theme of the 2012 Sermon Series continues as we read through the Bible this year, learning the storyline for our benefit and also to share that story with others. Our final message in this series focuses on the Israeliteís return to their covenant land after exile to Assyria and Babylon. Daniel is exiled in Babylon and studies the earlier prophetic words of Jeremiah. He receives desperately needed hope for Judahís return to Jerusalem to rebuild and worship God in the Temple. Then we see Judahís return, rebuilding, and restoration - of Jerusalem and the new Temple and their spiritual life with the God of Israel. The principle is valuable - prophecy is Godís word to His people, and as we open our hearts to His prophetic messages, we receive hope for our own lives.

May 6, 2012

The theme of the 2012 Sermon Series continues as we read through the Bible this year, learning the storyline for our benefit and also to share that story with others.† Our third lesson examines Godís dealings with the divided kingdoms of Israel and Judah. Their rebellion resulted in great tragedy and destruction even of Godís Temple, but the promise of Godís presence, power, and provision emerged, offering His people comfort if they would turn back to Him.† It reminds us that our faith-statement does not result from the perfection of our lives but by cooperating with Godís Holy Spirit.

You Have A Mighty Source - Two Nations | CD
Sermon delivered by G. Allen Jackson
April 29, 2012

The theme of the 2012 Sermon Series continues as we read through the Bible this year, learning the storyline for our benefit and also to share that story with others. †This first of five messages focuses on the division of the twelve tribes of Israel and the development of two nations Ė Israel in the north and Judah in the south.† Pastor Allen explores the compromise through rebellion that resulted in discontent and unleashed ungodly momentum.† In all this, Godís grace Ė unmerited favor Ė repeatedly turned His people back to His purposes.† Our life-lesson is cooperating with God by walking in His purposes gives us momentum for a godly life - it is the most successful way to live.
Growing in the Lord | CD
Sermon delivered by G. Allen Jackson
April 22, 2012

This topic invites us towards tremendous potential for our lives because being a Christ-follower is not simply a singular life-decision, but a life-long growing pattern.† Pastor Allen suggests three effective spiritual maturity points: a humble willingness to be a continuous learner; an open heart and mind to Godís word; and gaining a momentum toward a better future.† Growing in the Lord requires being strong in Godís might and asking Him to increase our faith.† It also means guarding our hearts and denying our carnal nature.† Being a Christ-follower is a journey, and understanding how to grow in the Lord is a powerful set of principles for that process.
Real Hope: Christ in You | CD

Unlikely Believers: Easter 2012 | CD
Sermon delivered by G. Allen Jackson
April 8, 2012

God arranged an unlikely appointment for mankind on the cross of Jesus Christ, for equally unlikely believers Ė the lowly, weak, and despised. Pastor Allen Jackson highlights four unlikely God-recruits: a lowly shepherd turned mighty warrior-king; and three hardened, calloused Roman Centurions. None seemed likely candidates for the grace of God, but their transformed lives became a lasting testimony. Jesus changed everything for them. We can choose to believe in Jesus, and that we can have a new beginning. We are all unlikely believers, but have the choice to believe.
Extravagant Provision - A Great Deliverance | CD
Sermon delivered by G. Allen Jackson
April 1, 2012

The concluding message on Godís extravagant provision focuses on cooperating with Godís Holy Spirit and choosing to mature in Christ and experience greater spiritual freedom.† Pastor Allen shares five specific ways the cross brings deliverance to our lives - deliverance from this present evil age; from the curse of the Law; from self and flesh; and deliverance from the world.† The pathway to maturing in Christ involves denying ourselves and applying Jesusí cross to every part of our lives, and letting Godís extravagant provision emerge within us.
Extravagant Provision - The Blood of Jesus | CD
Sermon delivered by G. Allen Jackson
March 25, 2012

The third message of this series focuses on Godís extravagant provision for our lives through His Son, Jesus.† Pastor Allen examines Godís authority, available to all Christ-followers Ė authority over sin, sickness, the satanic kingdom, our carnal nature, and the authority to make disciples of nations.† The blood of Jesus is the basis and anchor of that authority as we apply it daily to our lives.† Understanding Godís extravagance and authority through Jesusí sacrifice sets us free to serve a living God.
Extravagant Provision - A Kingdom Demonstration | CD
Sermon delivered by G. Allen Jackson
March 18, 2012

This sermon series continues a study of Godís extravagant provision for our lives, looking at the life, sacrifice, and redemptive legacy of Jesus.† The discussion is also about Jesusí revelation of Godís eternal Kingdom and His authority over the limitations to our lives, which includes authority over sin, physical elements, and even over death.† That same power and authority demonstrated through Jesusí life and work on the cross is available to each of us today.† The point of the cross is extravagant in the transformational hope it brings.† Only an Almighty God can take our life-limitations and make them doorways of possibility.† Faith in Jesus redefines the boundaries of our lives.
Extravagant Provision | CD
Sermon delivered by G. Allen Jackson
March 11, 2012

In preparation for the Easter Season, Pastor Allen examines Godís extravagant provision for our lives, speaking into those desperate places where only God is the resolution. It is important to know Godís power has given us everything we need for life and godliness. The basis of Godís vast provision for time and eternity is the atonement Ė the redemptive work of Jesus Christ on the cross. God extravagantly provided something we could not, and desires us to trust in His provision. That trust is developed in our lives Ė growing stronger as it is purposefully nurtured. The persistent problem standing against this is sin, but the irrevocable resolution is the cross. As we apply the truth of the cross, deliverance comes and we grow in our belief of His extravagant salvation.
The People of God | CD
Sermon delivered by G. Allen Jackson
March 4, 2012

This message examines the essence of what is to be the people of God. It starts from within us and begins with the revelation of Godís word. Pastor Allen begins in the New Testament, sharing three essential New Covenant principles Ė Godís divine power through the sacrifice of His Son, Jesus Christ, has given His people everything necessary to lead godly lives; God has given His people very great promises, which He has every intention to fulfill; and His presence will abide by His Spirit with His people forever. There are lessons we can learn and process in these principles, which will inform our journey: God is intentionally and actively present in His people; He desires we live for Him and in His purposes; and the best response to Godís manifold blessings and provision is continual thankfulness and good stewardship. God invites us to believe that He cares about His people and wants the best for our lives.
Dreams and Visions - Finishing Well | CD
Sermon delivered by G. Allen Jackson
February 26, 2012

This series continues regarding Godís dreams and visions for our lives. God, as our Creator, is fully aware of the thoughts and intents of our hearts; and He is interested in us - He has a life-plan for each one of us. Believing that and choosing to cooperate with His plan is the beginning point to a progressively unfolding process, which will open the doors of possibility in our lives. Fulfilling Godís life-plan, however, is not exclusive of challenges. It requires overcoming fear and discouragement, believing that God has not abandoned us or His plan. Pastor Allen presents lessons from the life of the Old Testament prostitute, Rahab. God fulfilled His purposes through her life as she both forgave and received forgiveness. She finished well and even became part of the family lineage of Jesus. We also want to finish well. It will require forgiving others, repenting and receiving forgiveness, and acting on our beliefs.
Dreams and Visions | CD
Sermon delivered by G. Allen Jackson
February 18, 2012

The thesis of this two-part series is that God places a dream into the heart of every person who accepts His Son and chooses Jesus as his Lord, giving us a God-designed role and assignment in life. Pastor Allen presents familiar characters from the Bible Ė Joseph, David, and Nehemiah - who experienced God-dreams. These dreams demanded their very best efforts and became inspiringly contagious, while helping them overcome deep disappointments in their journey. We all have dreams and visions. The Lord invites us to submit them to Him and then ask Him what His purpose is for our life. He has a transformational dream for each of us, and it takes a glimpse of eternity to submit ourselves to the Lord and allow His dreams to fill our lives.
Learning to Follow God | CD
Sermon delivered by G. Allen Jackson
February 12, 2012

One of the ideas presented in Scripture is learning to follow the Lord. It must be taught and learned because it is not instinctive. The story of the Bible provides paradigms for this idea: Jesus recruited disciples and then spent three years teaching them; God delivered the children of Israel from Egyptian slavery, then they spent forty years in the Wilderness learning to follow God into the Promised Land. God is still teaching His children to follow Him. He is inviting His people to reorient their lives and enter into a unique relationship with the Living God. This is an invitation for consecration for His purposes. God leads by the light of His truth. Our desire is to walk in His light.
You Have A Mighty Source - Kings | CD
Sermon delivered by G. Allen Jackson
February 5, 2012

Our 2012 New Years Sermon Series concludes with an introduction to the kings of Israel. After Joshuaís death, God appoints successive Judges to lead and protect His covenant people - the last one, the Prophet Samuel. The Israelites of his day - desiring to be like all the earthly nations more than a people led by God - exert independence and demand Samuel give them a king to rule over them, rejecting God as their King and their singular Source. With grave warnings, God gives them their desire and initiates a succession of kings over Israel Ė Saul, David, and Solomon. Each king had a hallmark: Saul Ė rebellion against Godís authority; David Ė imperfect, but with a passion for God; Solomon: the wisest and wealthiest but filled with tremendous compromise. The story of the kings of Israel reveals the importance of humbly listening with the intent to obey, the consequences of compromise, and the unshakable and eternal legacy that comes from knowing God as the mightiest source available.
You Have A Mighty Source - Joshua & Judges | CD
Sermon delivered by G. Allen Jackson
January 29, 2012 (PM)

Through the course of the year, we are working together to learn the story of the Bible and that we have a mighty source in God and His word. This fourth message in our New Yearís Sermon Series brings us to the story of Joshua, Mosesí assistant and successor Ė Godís appointed warrior, following the Lordís leadership and taking the children of Israel into their Promised Land inheritance. Through the narrative, we learn it takes strength and courage to obey the Lordís commands and we watch the walls of Jericho miraculously fall with only a shout. We learn Godís correlation between His Covenant people and the land He promised to them and that fierce battles can rage even in the midst of miracles. The passage of time shifts the storyline as Judges emerge over the Israelites, saving them from manifold enemies. Even so, there is inconsistency in the hearts of Godís people. As in the day of Joshua and Judges, it takes strength and courage to obey the Lord and possess our inheritance.
You Have A Mighty Source - The Exodus | CD
Sermon delivered by G. Allen Jackson
January 29, 2012

Our 2012 New Yearís Sermon Series continues through the book of Genesis, arriving to the Israelitesí dramatic departure from slavery in Egypt depicted in the book of Exodus. It is the account of a God Who can bring deliverance to our lives and Who uses people, even imperfect people, to be agents of His deliverance. For the Israelites, Moses was Godís delivering agent. This very imperfect man was just the right man, and God rescued the Israelites from over 400 years of brutal Egyptian slavery. The balance of the Book of Exodus is a freedom-story and the map of Godís very specific destination for His people Ė a place of restoration, deliverance, healing, and meaning. God led the children of Israel to His appointed destination the same way He leads us today, and the heart of this entire narrative is that God will provide for His people Ė He is our Mighty Source. His invitation to us, as it was with the Israelites, is to trust in Him, and the provision, and protection He offers. As we continue to read through our Bibles, Scripture will bring a revelation of God that will transform our hearts and our lives.
You Have A Mighty Source - The Patriarchs | CD
Sermon delivered by G. Allen Jackson
January 22, 2012 (PM)

The 2012 New Yearís Sermon Series, ďWe have a Mighty SourceĒ, began with an invitation from Pastor Allen to read through our Bibles in a year, bringing a new revelation of God into our lives. This message concerns the fathers of our faith as they are introduced to us in the book of Genesis after the story of creation. At that point, the narrative of Genesis turns from the universality of God dealing with all of humanity in broad strokes to a story of God beginning to work first through an individual, then through a family system, a clan, a tribe, and ultimately, through a nation. Itís a remarkable story where we begin to discover a vital principle - God needs people. God needed a man that would enter into a Covenant with him, and Abram Ė Abraham - was that kind of a man. God is still looking for people whose hearts are fully devoted to Him - not perfect or sinless people, but people who are willing to yield and cooperate with God.
You Have A Mighty Source - Creation | CD
Sermon delivered by G. Allen Jackson
January 22, 2012

Our 2012 New Yearís Sermon Series begins with an invitation from Pastor Allen to read through our Bibles in a year. As we accomplish that together, we learn not only the storyline of the Bible, but also gain knowledge that enables us to tell the whole story of the Bible ourselves. ďWe Have a Mighty SourceĒ is at the heart of this discussion; recognizing and understanding our abilities and opportunities are directly proportional to the assets of that same source. If God is our source, the limiting factor becomes Almighty God Himself. Pastor Allen invites us in a daily exposure to Scripture, to consider God is our source. The Bible tells us that He is the author of life. He gives us breath. He is our Redeemer. And the story begins in the book of Genesis with the story of creation, revealing an all knowing and all powerful God Ė a God concerned with all mankind. He gives us hope and a future. He is our mighty source.
Great Beginnings, Great Endings | CD
Sermon delivered by G. Allen Jackson
November 27, 2011

Pastor Allen begins his Advent Season series concerning great beginnings and great endings. Christmas celebrates a remarkable beginning Ė the amazing step of God toward humanity. Scripture says that when the time was just right, God sent His Son, born or a woman, born under law, to redeem us Ė to purchase us back and change the course of human destiny. The Christmas celebration, however, would never have endured as it has across the centuries, through all the cultures, empires, and political regimes that have come and gone, if it were not for the way Jesus ended His life. Jesusí redemptive work - his death, burial, and resurrection Ė makes His birth story even more dramatic; and there is a parallel in our own lives, especially seen through the lives of the Apostles. We want miraculous beginnings to our spiritual journey, but need transformational endings as well. This message considers the journey of Jesusí disciple, Thomas Ė a man who was zealous for Jesusí pathway but plummeted into hopelessness when that path met the cross. After Jesusí resurrection, He extended a special invitation to Thomas, which transformed his faith and led him to an amazing spiritual ending. Opportunities always avail for new beginnings in our lives Ė considering our ending will help us maintain the momentum to miraculous beginnings.
Great Beginnings, Great Endings - You Can Change | CD
Sermon delivered by G. Allen Jackson
December 4, 2011

Pastor Allen continues his Advent Season series concerning great beginnings and great endings. A tremendous beginning alone is not cause for an enduring celebration. Christmas celebrates a remarkable beginning Ė God coming to live among us. The Christmas celebration, however, would never have endured as it has across the centuries, through all the cultures, empires, and political regimes that have come and gone, if it were not for the way Jesus completed His lifeís work. ďYou Can ChangeĒ encourages us to reflect not just on the beginning of our spiritual journey but to begin to live with the end in mind. That is our pattern for this Advent. The point of being birthed into the Kingdom is to pursue the purposes of God. Being a Christ-follower means that every day, God deserves our best. The lives of the Apostles exemplify this, even in the midst of much struggle and opposition. Pastor Allen examines the life of the fisherman Peter turned disciple, whose relationship to Jesus resulted in total life transformation. Peter willingly yielded to Godís purposes for his life, even after great failure, and Peter changed Ė so can we.

Learning to embrace Jesusí invitation to follow Him and His direction for our lives is a great beginning. Christ-followers continue to learn under the tutelage of the Lord Ė learning about spiritual realities with specificity, learning to seek the Lord actively, and learning about realms of spiritual authority, especially through prayer. Learning from the Lord is a great beginning and leads to even greater endings.

Scripture says that when the time was just right, God sent His Son, born or a woman, born under law, to redeem us Ė to purchase us back and change the course of human destiny.

Jesusí redemptive work - his death, burial, and resurrection Ė makes His birth story even more dramatic; and there is a parallel in our own lives, especially seen through the lives of the Apostles. ďFaith TransfersĒ examines the rocky start of a certain Jewish Pharisee, Saul, who ended his life as one of the most influential disciples of Jesus Christ - the Apostle Paul. Paul finished his life well because he cooperated with Godís plan to free him from the power of darkness and transfer him into the Kingdom of God. We can as well because God can take a life that has been sorely misdirected and, through His power, cause it to bear great fruit for His purpose as it is yielded to Him in humility of heart. Jesus makes all the difference.
Let's Please God | CD
Sermon delivered by G. Allen Jackson
January 1, 2012

The key to success in any endeavor, practical or spiritual, begins with the fundamentals. Pastor Allen submits that the fundamentals of being a Christ-follower begin with Kingdom initiation Ė purposefully and intentionally becoming a part of the Kingdom of God. The fundamentals continue with water baptism and progressively enter into a relationship with Godís Holy Spirit - knowing Him as we understand His voice, promptings, and His inclinations, in order to cooperate more fully with Him. Participating in Godís community of faith is another key fundamental that will help us grow into Christian maturity. The next component is stewardship Ė understanding God has entrusted us with time, talent, treasure, opportunities, and influence Ė and how we steward those opportunities is an expression of how we honor God. Once our foundation of fundamentals is in place, we can begin to practice becoming increasingly more like Jesus Ė building with the attitudes of forgiveness, perseverance, and a true desire to please God. Today, we want to be intentional and decide to please God and to live for His glory.

Sermon delivered by G. Allen Jackson
January 15, 2012

Our focus continues in this series on the Person and the work of Godís Holy Spirit. Life comes with inescapable problems Ė times when we need greater help from God. He provided our answer, having sent His Spirit into the earth to indwell His people to be our Helper. What is the Holy Spirit doing in the earth today, and how can we cooperate with Him? Pastor Allen shares an important beginning is relating to the Holy Spirit as a person and having a meaningful relationship with Him. Jesus exemplified while on earth - bringing freedom, life, liberty, and hope as a result of His cooperation of the Spirit of God. Jesus is still doing those same things in the earth today through us. He has given us the authority of His Name and the power of His redemptive work to accomplish those same things in our generation Ė it is our Kingdom assignment. The Holy Spirit empowers the body of Christ, and we need His help to let the power of God be made evident in our generation Ė help to pray, help to minister, help with victory over sin, and help with the formation of our character.

Cooperation is a life-choice, and Pastor Allen invites us to develop an attitude that welcomes and embraces the Holy Spirit. Making peace with the Person of the Holy Spirit results in becoming a person through whom the He can become evident, bringing glory to God the Father. We need a relationship with God's Holy Spirit Ė receive the Person of the Holy Spirit.
