Raising the Dead

by Pastor Peter
In Jesus' miraculous raising of Lazarus, we see how Jesus enters into our suffering, how Jesus has authority over death (both literal and figurative) and how a new life will inevitably cause hostility with people living the old sort of life.

A Miraculous Mulligan?

by Pastor Peter
A Mulligan is a do-over in golf. Many times in life, we feel like we could use a Mulligan, but in Mark chapter 8, when it appears that Jesus needs one in a miracle seemingly gone wrong, we might be concerned. In this sermon, we examine how this isn't an instance of Jesus needing two…

Freeing the Oppressed

by Pastor Peter
We might assume that being pure means keeping away from sin. And since God is absolutely pure, he must stay as far away from sin as possible. But we see, in the incarnation, that this isn't true. Holiness doesn't stay pure by being distant from sin, but being different than sin. Jesus goes on a…

Feeding the 5000

by Pastor Peter
In Feeding the 5000, Jesus shows us how hospitality in God's kingdom is different than in the kingdoms of this world. He shows us how God costly grace is given to us.

Healing the Paralyzed Man

by Pastor Peter
Jesus returns to his home base in Capernaum as a celebrity healer and preacher. Some men bring a friend who needs healing and use an unconventional way to get him before Jesus. In this sermon, we look at what we can understand about who Jesus is and what he's up to from how he responds…

Water Into Wine

by Pastor Peter
Jesus' first recorded miracle—changing water into wine—isn't a simple party trick. Instead, by changing the contents of the pots used in religious rituals to a beverage symbolizing celebration, he subtly demonstrates the hope that he comes to embody that all people can be invited to a heavenly wedding between God and humanity.

God of Abundance

by Pastor Peter
In the story of Abraham and his family, we see their family breaking apart because they fail to understand that God's blessings are not subject to scarcity. When we live this way, we compete when we should collaborate. If God's people understand God's capacity to abundantly bless them, it would reshape our attitudes toward others…

Empowered for Mission (Pentecost)

by Pastor Peter
On the Day of Pentecost, the Holy Spirit empowers the church to carry out the mission Jesus gave the Apostles: being his witnesses everywhere. In this sermon, we look at three ways the Spirit empowers the church for its mission.

Ascended

by
In Acts 1 we read about Jesus' ascension into heaven after his resurrection. What we might miss is how the story is full of allusions to Old Testament prophetic texts that are meant to shape our understanding of the authority that Jesus is giving to his disciples.

Faith’s Victory

by Pastor Peter
Faith isn't an idea in our head, but instead, trust in what God has done. If we embrace this truth then it will have an affect on our life. The results will include prayer, mission, witness, transformation and more faith. Faith also awakens us to God's love, which, when we comprehend us, will lead us…

Welcoming the Outsider

by Pastor Peter
Phillip has no idea that his obedience to a seemingly absurd command by God will lead him to share the good news with an outsider that God has welcomed in and that this outsider--a Eunuch from Ethiopia--would become the apostle to take the message to a whole new continent.

Two Kinds of Wisdom

by Pastor Peter
Human wisdom is judged right by how it looks. God's wisdom, displayed in Jesus' crucifixion is judged right by what it accomplishes. Believers should pursue the kind of wisdom demonstrated by Jesus as it builds a life-giving community if we are faithful to it.
