God Alone

The devil showed Jesus all the kingdoms of the world and told him he would give all their authority and glory to him if he would worship him. Jesus answered,

“It is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and him only shall you serve.’” Luke 4:8 [ESV]

Where was it written? What does it mean? How did Jesus teach this lesson others? How do we apply to our own lives?

Worship Him Alone

Sermon on the Temptation of Christ.

Putting on a New Life

Everyone likes new things for Christmas. How about a new and better life?

In the third chapter of his letter to the Colossians, Paul urges them to put on a new life. But what’s it like and where do we we get it? In this sermon, Pastor Hinkle warns that such a life isn’t a do-it-yourself project and points us to the true source for a better life.

Sermon on Colossians 3

Christ and His Word

For a short time Peter became Jesus’ adversary because he was unwilling to accept what Jesus was trying to teach him. We also need to give attention to God’s Word; especially, when it is hard to accept.

Forgiveness for All

Audio Sermon on Luke 23:33-35
Who was Jesus asking God to forgive as they nailed him to his cross? It wasn’t just the soldier pounding in the nails! There were others on His mind that day, too. Since his resurrection he continues to intercede for those who need God’s forgiveness. In this sermon, Pastor Hinkle encourages listeners to consider their own need for forgiveness and explains why God forgives and how He communicates that forgiveness to those who need it.
