  • trusting, testing, tarrying

    Psalm 40

    When we do not fully trust the Lord during times of trials, God’s perfect timing can falsely appear as delayed tarrying.  God is never early or late. . . His timing is perfect!

  • when the i am says i will

    Hosea 2:14-23

    When God says He will take action. . . He will!  Israel allured lovers and forgot the Lord; the Lord covenants to remember and allure Israel.  Regardless of the actions taken against us or against God, His desire is reconciliation!

  • the mother of all living

    Genesis 3:1-21

    In this Mother’s Day message, Pastor Sargent highlighted the world’s first woman, first mother, first grandmother, and first great-grandmother (many times over) — EVE. This first female was called “Adam” by the Creator God, and Adam called her “woman” (the name of relationship) and “Eve” — the name of faith.

  • hath god forgotten to be gracious?

    Psalm 77

    We should allow God to answer our questions, especially in troubling times.  God always gives us hope!  Through the 77th chapter of Psalm is seen two musicians, the three parts of man and of music, six questions posed, five choices made, and the one hope that God gives.

  • the enabling grace of god

    I Timothy 1:8-17

    After Paul was saved it was evident that God was working in his life.  Just as the Apostle Paul, God works in a saved person’s life.  In this message we see God’s Election, Entrusting, and Enabling.

  • the crown of life

    I Peter 5:10

    We can have great hope during life’s suffering and struggles as we look forward to the crown and promises to come.  We look backward to the sufferings of Christ on the cross and the crown awaiting us which brings great comfort during times of trials and troubles.  

  • the wiles of the devil

    Nehemiah 6:1-16

    In this passage of Scripture is a wonderful account of the rebuilding of the walls by the Jews.  The devil’s people were constantly working to undermine the work of God and to see that it was brought to a halt.  Anytime we’re doing a work for God, we know the devil is not just going to sit idle.    The spiritual parallel for us today is that as we strive to live for Christ there will be great opposition! 

  • Old testament resurrection

    Matthew 22:29-32

    The New Testament rises and falls on the Resurrection, but what about the Old Testament?  As the New is in the Old concealed, the Old is in the New revealed.  The Old Testament God is the God of the living, and the Old Testament teaches a resurrection of the dead.  

  • centrality of the resurrection

    I Corinthians 15

    Christianity is a person. . . Jesus Christ!  His great work of redemption is sealed by His resurrection.  In the “Resurrection Chapter” of God’s Word, the centrality of our Lord’s resurrection is declared. Pastor Sargent outlines the chapter under the headings of the picture, proof, priority, process, persuasion, particulars, promise, and prompting of the resurrection.

  • the blood of jesus christ

    Deuteronomy 32:14

    The blood of Jesus Christ was a necessary part of the Lord’s Table.  Remission comes through the offered blood of the Son, Redemption comes through the precious blood of the Lamb, and Remembrance comes through the pure blood of the grape.

  • the next lord's supper

    Mark 14:12-26

    Today’s scripture passage is the account of the institution of the Lord’s Supper.  This ordinance of the Lord’s Table is for a New Testament church to observe, it requires personal soul-searching, it is symbolic, and is anticipatory.  This solemn occasion reminds us of the cost of salvation and the great hope it represents.

  • the rock song

    Deuteronomy 32

    Music can be very instrumental to teach us, admonishing us, and remind us of the Lord’s work in our life.  The song spoken by Moses centers our attention on The Rock of hope which is God!  The song bears witness and brings wisdom.  Godly music focuses on God, bears witness of Him and His word, and we His creation in comparison, and brings wisdom from the past and the future to bear upon the present.

  • a response to victory through grace

    Joshua 24:14; Ephesians 6:24

    Has God ever wrought a victory in your life through grace?  How long does the commitment to love and serve the Lord following a victory last?  God commands our response to victory through grace to be to love and serve in sincerity continually!

  • What are you thinking?

    Philippians 2:1-13

    What is your opinion?  What is your world view?  What are you thinking?  What is your mindset?  We are to have a like-mindedness with God.  There are three kinds of mindsets that relate to the battles Christians engage in every day: Contrary, Converted, and Commendable.

  • how to be a disciple maker

    John 1:35-46; 20:19-23

    The calling of the first disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ is recounted in the scripture passage for today’s message, and the commissioning of the Lord’s church at the conclusion of Christ’s earthly ministry.  Each of His disciples were trained and challenged to reproduce themselves; just as we are to do today.  This message focuses on the basics of reproducing ourselves by (1) finding someone, (2) inviting them to join you on a journey, (3) spending time with them, (4) challenging them to grow to new heights of faith, and (5) anticipating them leaving the nest to become disciple makers themselves.

  • the value of discipleship

    Hebrews 6:1-20

    The book of Hebrews was written to Jews who were struggling to reconcile their traditions and culture with the Gospel of salvation by grace through faith in Jesus Christ.  The sixth chapter of Hebrews presents the Lord’s desire for each of His children, that they would grow in Him to perfection (spiritual maturity).  Many Christians remain stunted (not grown), stagnant, or still sucking on the milk of God’s word instead of growing in grace.  This message will help guide a believer as they seek to grow in Christ.

  • his dear son

    Colossians 1:13-20

    God’s dear Son is to have preeminence in all things. When one makes “His dear Son” their dear Saviour through repentance and faith, that person receives redemption through His blood, and the forgiveness of all sins. To continue as a Christian to give His dear Son preeminence in all things—devotion, doctrine, and duty—is to make Jesus increase and self-decrease.

  • the word of god's grace

    Colossians 1:1-8

    We should be commended to the word of God’s Grace.  In the message, the scripture passage gives a clear picture of God’s grace through the Word, the Word Heard, the Word Working, and the Word Preached.

  • mediocrity is not an achievement

    Numbers 14:24

    Why is it that Christians often settle for average?  Our goal should not be the minimums when it comes to living for Christ.  Mediocrity is not an achievement, but we are rather to follow God fully with another spirit.  Caleb was such a man who had another spirit with him, and he followed God fully.  We can take great encouragement by examining the life of Caleb.

  • the joyful and the killjoys

    Luke 5:27-39

    God’s intention is that our life in Christ be filled with joy.  As Jesus was at a great feast, lookers-on outside murmured.  In this message the different groups of people that gathered (Matthew, the Publicans, the Pharisees, and the Disciples of John) fell into one of two groups: Joyful or Killjoys.  Satan will use any means to kill your joy!

  • the baptism of jesus

    Matthew 3

    The beginning of Jesus’ public ministry began with His baptism at the hands of John the Baptist.  In verse fifteen of the text Jesus makes the statement “. . . for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness.”  With these words, Jesus spoke of the mode, the importance, the association, and the symbolism of scriptural baptism.

  • the scapegoat - hands of atonement

    Leviticus 16:20-22

    II Corinthians 5:21 says, For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.”  This verse is a great description of the passage in Leviticus concerning the Scapegoat: Leviticus 16:21  “And Aaron shall lay both his hands upon the head of the live goat, and confess over him all the iniquities of the children of Israel, and all their transgressions in all their sins, putting them upon the head of the goat, and shall send him away by the hand of a fit man into the wilderness:”

  • the seven temples of god

    Deuteronomy 12:1-7

    A temple is a dwelling place of God, a place where God manifests His special presence among His people.  Tonight’s Bible study focuses our attention on seven temples mentioned all throughout the Scriptures.

  • exercising grace in times of marital difficulties

    I Samuel 1:1-8

    Hannah is best known for her commitment of faith, but she also was a wife who was unfulfilled, depressed, and a worrier. Her husband, Elkanah, was frustrated because, although he loved his wife dearly, he did not know how to help her. So, he did what every husband should do when they don’t know what to do.

  • parenting with perfect peace

    Proverbs 22:6

    Keep proactively, purposefully, and consistently parenting biblically. Don’t be defeated by your inability to turn off your child’s free will. You can influence their ways according to the principle of Proverbs 22:6.

  • the great altar of the millennial kingdom

    Ezekiel 43:13-27

    The prophet Ezekiel wrote during the Babylonian captivity and presents an intensely apocalyptic picture of future events.  In this message Pastor Sargent walks us through the book of Ezekiel, showing us a preview of the Millennial Kingdom and, in particular, of the great altar that will memorialize the CAUSE of the age of peace and righteousness.

  • the last words of jesus christ

    Revelation 22:6-21

    In this message, Pastor Sargent expounds upon the last promise of the Bible — the imminent return of Jesus Christ for the saints. He explains, not only the pretribulational Rapture, but the practical ramifications of the blessed hope in the life of the believer. 

  • the response to victory

    II Samuel 12:26-31

    In the account of General Joab and King David’s defeat of the Ammonites there are lessons to be learned from each of their responses.  As is seen in Joab, we too need to give all the glory to the King.  Also, as David, every Christian will struggle when they are out of the will of God.

  • prospering withersoever thou turneth

    Proverbs 17:8; I Kings 2:1-4

    Comprehensive prospering of the next generation requires strength of character to keep God’s word that they may be as precious stones in the eyes of the Lord.  Pastor Geist brings to our attention the Context of Succession, the Charge of Strength, and the Clarification of Submission from the texts.

  • how to experience the grace of life in your marriage

    I Peter 3:1-7

    A married couple is to be as heirs together of the grace of life.  Pastor Sargent presents from the passage four essentials for experiencing grace of life in your marriage: (1) Submission, (2) a Separation, (3) Sensitivity, and (4) Singularity.

  • hearken unto your father

    Genesis 49:1-2

    Fathers aren’t perfect, but a dad’s wrestling with God can yield changes that are profitable to their children. In spite of a father’s flaws, children are to still “honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;).”

  • grace comes from the father, not the flesh

    Genesis 32:1-23

    Grace is not a New Testament invention.  Grace was before the law.  Grace comes from the Father and not from the flesh.  In this message Pastor Geist presents from this passage the Father’s gracious Protection as opposed to Fleshly Fears, the Father’s gracious Provision as opposed to Fleshly Fulfillment, and the Father’s gracious Presence as opposed to Fleshly Forewarnings.

  • stewarding manifold grace, part II

    Genesis 24

    Peter exhorts us to be “good stewards of the manifold grace of God.” Genesis 24 records the principled actions of Abraham’s good steward for our learning, application, and profit. Pastor Geist gleans from this passage the good stewarding principles of Sobriety, Selectivity, Responsibility, Capacity, Sovereignty, Priority, Gratuity, and Accountability. 

  • unity out of diversity

    Acts 2:41-47; I Cor. 12:13-18; Eph. 4:7-16

    As every New Testament Church is likened unto a body, so is Jesus Christ as its Head.  In the message Pastor Sargent explains how God enables unity to be achieved.

  • stewarding manifold grace, part I

    I Peter 4:1-10

    What does it mean to be “good stewards of the manifold grace of God?" In Peter’s first epistle, manifold trials of our faith require God’s manifold gifts of grace. Once they are identified, how are gifts of grace to be stewarded in a very practical and biblical way?

  • the sanctity of human life

    Job 33:4

    Human life is set apart by God and for God.  God made you; God gave you your life; and your life is sanctified. Don’t end your life, or that of another—born or unborn. Pray for God’s enabling grace to live out His purpose in your life to the end of your fullness of days.

  • grace warns and faith moves

    Hebrews 11:7

    Grace without faith leaves sinners eternally condemned, and God’s gracious warning without our moving by faith with fear places saints unnecessarily troubled—potentially in constant crisis.

  • i will fear no evil

    Psalm 23:4

    The most common emotion in men is fear, especially in the days of the current pandemic.  However, fear of death is man’s greatest fear.  In this message Pastor Sargent preaches about the Categories of Fear and Conquering Fear.

  • overview of spiritual gifts

    Romans 12:4-8

    After explaining the differences between the “sign” gifts and the “serving” gifts, Pastor Sargent shows how a believer is to use his or her gift, stir it up, and nurture it.  The text yields three thoughts concerning spiritual gifts: The Right Vessel, the Right Place, and the Right Exercise.
