Sermons from June 2020
Mike continues our series through the book of Revelation talking about Jesus’ letter to Smyrna, who were faced with life or death decisions identifying as Jesus-followers. Mike walks through the context of this story, where Jesus issues a response from all people…allegiance.
Pastor Mike details the intense worship cult in Ephesus as Jesus addresses his first of 7 churches. Jesus praises the church for the effort in weeding out false teachers, but gives a stern warning to the church on “losing its first love.”
Pastor Mike starts a new series on the book of Revelation as we examine why the doctrine of the Second Coming of Jesus is important, and how it is especially encouraging in the times we find ourselves in.
Mike gives an honest reflection as a bi-racial person who grew up with all the benefits of white privilege. We pray this can be the start of listening, learning, lamenting, and confessing.
