  • the meaning of dedication

    II Chronicles 15:1-19

    In this message, Pastor Sargent focuses on the subject of dedication, or consecration — using the example of King Asa of Judah.

    Asa’s story unfolds over three chapters of the book of Second Chronicles. Chapter 14 speaks of his REFORMS, and chapter 15 of REVIVAL (which followed his dedication of precious treasures to the Lord and His temple. Sadly, chapter 16 is all about Asa’s RETREAT, in which he took back that which he had dedicated to the Lord. Asa was one of the “good” kings of Judah, but in the end, he relied upon man instead of the Lord. In making application, Pastor Sargent highlighted several areas of life that Christians often dedicate to the Lord — such as their Time, their Talents, their Treasure, their Tribe (marriage, children), and of the Temple of their own body.

  • I am he that liveth

    Revelation 1:4-20

    The first chapter of the book of The Revelation records “the things which thou hast seen” — the first division of the book (Revelation 1:19).

    The “things” which John saw and was instructed to record was the vision of the resurrected, glorified Christ. As Jesus, the Great “I AM,” spoke to the aged apostle, He declared the words that are the central and defining message of true Biblical Christianity: I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore.”

    This message is a triumphant exposition of this unique truth.

  • discourse on the way to gethsemane, part ii

    [The Discourses of Christ series #34]

    John 15:18-16:16

    As Christ concluded His farewell message to His church, He spoke to His disciples of the “Way of the World,” the “Purpose of the Paraclete,” and the power that would be theirs to overcome the world and win the lost to Him — namely, the power of the Holy Spirit, the power of the Word of God, and the power of prayer.

  • all sin is against god

    Joshua 7:1-26

    Some political and theological philosophies claim that personal liberty takes precedence over all. In contrast, the Bible teaches that we are to “use not our liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another” (Galatians 5:13). Looking at Israel’s defeat against Ai recorded in Joshua chapter seven, Pastor Geist draws out two principles from the text:  All sin is against God; and all sin affects others.

  • blessed forgiveness

    Psalm 32:1-5

    The sweet psalmist of Israel describes the blessedness of the LORD's forgiveness of sin in Psalm 32. The Lord Jesus Christ taught throughout His earthly ministry the interconnected principle of both receiving and extending blessed forgiveness.

  • discourse on the way to gethsemane, part I

    [The Discourses of Christ series #33]

    John 15:1-17

    After leaving the upper room, Jesus continued His farewell message to His church — which included important matters such as abiding in Christ and fruitfulness, persecutions, prayer, and the purpose or ministry of the Holy Spirit. In this message Pastor Sargent focuses our attention on the two key words in the text: "Abide," and "Fruit."

  • NO SCHISM

    1 Corinthians 12:18-27

    As Pastor Geist expounds upon the teaching about the Lord’s Table, we see that if members have not the same care one for another, they are in danger of being divided.  Through the text we are challenged to do two things: (1) Recognize God Tempers the Body Together, and (2) we are to Exercise the Same Care One for Another.

  • THE UPPER ROOM DISCOURSE, PART III

    John 14:15-31

    [The Discourses of Christ series #32]

    This is the final message of a three-part series on Jesus’ Upper Room Discourse.  In this sermon, Pastor Sargent presents the Identity of the Holy Spirit, the Indwelling of the Holy Spirit, and Impartment of the Holy Spirit.

  • the upper room discourse, part ii

    John 13:36-14:14

    [The Discourses of Christ series #31]

    As Pastor Sargent expounds upon the farewell words of Jesus Christ, spoken just hours before He went to the cross, this message considers several questions asked by His disciples. Jesus not only answered their questions, but also gave then (and us) words of encouragement and blessed promises.

  • the upper room discourse, part i

    John 13:25:31-35

    [The Discourses of Christ series #30]

    This is the first of a three-part series of messages on Jesus’ Upper Room Discourse.  Following the departure of the betrayer, Jesus begins giving to His church his farewell words in a very intimate, private conversation with His church. In this sermon, Pastor Sargent presents four components of the New Commandment: (1) the Command to Love, (2) the Causation of Love, (3) the Character of Love, and (4) the Corroboration of Love.

  • come together

    1 Corinthians 11:17-34

    Partaking of the Lord’s Table unworthily can cause weakness, sickness, and even death.  Personal and corporate examination and preparation are therefore sober imperatives prior to the Lord’s Supper.  In that context, Pastor Geist addresses divisions within a church: causes, preventative measures, and corrective actions.

  • the olivet discourse, part vii

    Matthew 25:31-46

    [The Discourses of Christ series #29]

  • the olivet discourse, Part vi

    Matthew 25:14-30

    [The Discourses of Christ series #28]

    This second parable in Matthew 25 is the parable of the “Talents.” This is a parable about REWARDS for serving the Lord. Pointing out that, while we are not saved by our works, a believer is saved to work and labor for the Lord, Pastor Sargent explains the value of a talent and the accounting of a believer’s stewardship at the Judgment Seat of Christ. In this sermon, he presents the Axioms of Stewardship, the Areas of Stewardship, and the Accounting of Stewardship.

  • the olivet discourse, part v

    Matthew 25:1-13

    [The Discourses of Christ series #27]

    Pastor Sargent continues in the series on the Olivet Discourse with the parable of the “Ten Virgins.” This is a parable about the RETURN of Christ for His saints.  The Rapture will be sudden and unexpected.  Using the following expressions taken from the text — “They that were ready,” “The door was shut,” and “I know you not” — Pastor Sargent emphasizes the need of a personal salvation through Jesus Christ.

  • the qualities of a successful soul-winner

    Acts 8:26-40

    A successful soul-winner will have six essential qualities: (1) Be Tuned-in to the Lord, (2) Be Willing to be Inconvenienced, (3) Be Willing to Interact with People, (4) Have some Enthusiasm, (5) Have Skill in using the Scriptures, and (6) Know What is Involved in true Salvation.

  • the olivet discourse, part iii

    Matthew 24:15-28

    [The Discourses of Christ series #25]

    Jesus answered the second question asked by His disciples: What shall be the sign of thy coming?

  • the olivet discourse, part ii

    Matthew 24:1-14

    [The Discourses of Christ series #24]

  • come

    Matthew 14:21-33

    God still needs preachers, and God still calls preachers. God used the text to reveal a call into the ministry for Pastor Geist, with Jesus’ one word response to Peter, “Come.” Have you prayerfully asked God if he’s calling you, and then searched the scriptures for His answer?

  • sovereignty and selection

    Genesis 24:1-21

    The Bible teaches both the sovereignty of God and the free will of man, regardless of our finite ability to understand the integration of those two truths. Listen to how the Holy Spirit teaches both “Sovereignty and Selection” from Genesis Chapter 24.

  • the olivet discourse, part i

    [The Discourses of Christ series #23]

    Matthew 24:1-3

    In the first message in a series on the Olivet Discourse, Pastor Sargent points to the fact of the prophetic significance of this passage.  He presents the prophetic context of the discourse from the circumstances surrounding Jesus’ discourse as well as the context of the discourse from the sermon itself.

  • how to present the gospel

    Acts 19:8-9

    The way TO life is THROUGH Jesus Christ; once saved, the way OF life is IN Jesus Christ.  Many Christians today know many scriptures, but do not have confidence in presenting the way of salvation.  All Christians bear the responsibility in giving the lost directions to “the way!”  Pastor Sargent presents how Paul used a consistent pattern in witnessing to others, and then taught on the four basic requirements of a soul winning approach.  Attached to the Audio Sermon page is an exercise for you to do regarding the Way of Salvation.

  • don't lose confidence

    Hebrews 10:32-37

    How is your faith?  We lose confidence when we take our eyes off Christ.  In this portion of Scripture Pastor Sargent gives three reasons to have a confidence boost: a Reminder of the Past, a Recommendation for the Present, and Rest in the Future.

  • the scribes and pharisees

    [The Discourses of Christ series #22]

    Matthew 23:1-12

  • marriage and divorce

    [The Discourses of Christ series #21]

    Matthew 19:1-12

  • integrity

    Job 2:1-10

    Integrity centers more on moral wholeness even in negative circumstances.  Through the scriptures Pastor Geist presents the characterization of Job’s integrity as through God’s testimony, Job’s wife, and Job’s own testimony.

  • in the garden

    Genesis 8:8-10

    In The Garden is a favorite hymn of many Christians. The text speaks of sweet fellowship with God in the garden of prayer. In Genesis Chapter Three we read of quite a contrast sin brings “in the garden,” changing the joy we can share as we tarry there to fear and hiding from God. In your garden of prayer, are you hiding from God or abiding in God? Do you cry out to God for help, or does he call out to you, “Where art thou?” Are you afraid, or do you boldly pray for mercy and grace to help in time of need? Listen now to evaluate your prayer time, In The Garden.

  • is there no balm in gilead?

    Jeremiah 8:18-22

    The weeping prophet Jeremiah grieved over his nation, the nation of Israel.  He showed a great burden for his people.  Many today demonstrate a lack of empathy for the lost all around us.  Our job is not to save, but to lead others to the Saviour.

  • what is your heart's desire?

    Romans 10:1-10

    As we live for Christ our goals should be directed by God’s word.  Many today have empty resolutions; however, the Apostle Paul is a great example of someone with strong heart’s desire.  Through the scriptures Pastor Sargent presents two things that will affect your heart: (1) See the Lost as God Sees them, and (2) Seek the Lost as God Seeks them.
