The Grace of Baptism

“Snakes! Why did it have to be snakes!”
Numbers 21:4-9 Ephesians 2:1-10 John 3:14-21 Psalm 107:1-3, 17-22 “Snakes! Why did it have to be snakes!” You remember that line from The Raiders of the Lost Ark? Snakes are the one thing that Indiana Jones is afraid of and suddenly he is faced with the pro...

Self-Denial
Genesis 17:1-7, 15-16 Romans 4:13-25 Mark 8:31-38 Psalm 22:22-30 There
is a disastrously erroneous message being preached in some of the largest

One With Authority
Mark 1:21-28 There is something
different about Jesus. There is something astonishingly different about Jesus.
