The Wisdom of Service

There are different kinds of spiritual wisdom and they lead to different ways of living. This short sermon from Mark 9:30-37 and James 3 will help you sort out the difference between demonic wisdom and the wisdom that comes from the one true God.

You Can Be Reconciled with God

Reconciliation is a process that takes two and takes effort. How does the process work when the one we want to reconcile with is God? With whom is God willing to be reconciled? What has he done to make it possible? What is expected of you?

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.

Lamb of God, Son of God

Audio recording of a sermon on John 1, delivered January 15th, 2017.

John called Jesus the Lamb of God, the Son of God, and the one who will baptize with the Holy Spirit. These “names” tell us a lot about who Jesus is and what he has done for us.

Drawing the Boundaries of the Church

It matters what you believe.

While there are many who say that it doesn’t matter what you believe, the Christian church has always said that only the truth can save us.

The reason that a faith based on lies and misconceptions cannot save is that it will point one either to a false god or a false christ. For that reason, the ecumenical creeds that set forth the truth about God and Jesus Christ also draw the boundaries of the holy Christian Church.

In his sermon for Trinity Sunday, Pastor Hinkle speaks about the two major parts of the Ahanasian Creed and why what they teach about Christ must be true for him to be our savior.


It Is Finished

Seven Things Jesus Said from  the Cross, Part 6

Audio Sermon on  John 19:30

Moments from death Jesus cried out with a loud voice, “It is finished!”

What was finished?

  • His testing and temptation
  • His suffering
  • His work of atonement
  • Everything required for our salvation.

The old era of sin and condemnation was ending and a new era would  soon begin.
