The Message at Pentecost, Part 1

Scripture: Acts 2:22–36

Speaker: Pastor Miguel Betancourt II

Series: The Acts: The Unstoppable Work of the Risen Christ

Synopsis: This message looks at the message that Peter preached on the day of Pentecost. One of the vital lessons we learn is that if we are to be effective in proclaiming Christ, we must have God's power. Another lesson is the absolute necessity of depending upon God's Spirit, like a hand that fills a glove, to be useful and usable to impact souls for Christ.

I AM the Resurrection & the Life, Part 2

Scripture: John 11:25

Speaker: Pastor Miguel Betancourt II

Series: Knowing Christ: The I AM - The Self-Revelation of Jesus Christ in the Gospel of John

Synopsis: In this second of five messages, the pastor takes a closer look at Christ's unique privilege and power in giving life to the physically dead and to the spiritually dead. It is precisely because He is the Possessor of Life that He is also the Provider of Life. Christ raised others from the dead in His day. He raised Himself from the grave.There is a coming day of resurrection in which each person will rise again. For the spiritually dead, Christ shares His own life with those who are saved--the same life that is shared within the Trinity. Those who are born-again have the assurance of eternal life as a present possession because they have been given the very life of God Himself! He presently has it to give!

Right Thinking about God's Word

Scripture: 1 Thessalonians 2:13

Speaker: Pastor Miguel Betancourt II

Synopsis: Our attitude about the Bible has much to do about the degree of our spiritual growth in Christ. If we see it as nothing more than the work of men, then its authority is on par with our opinions about various matters of life. We therefore see no problem with living life our own way and obedience to God is seen as optional. However, if we see it as it is in truth, the words of God, then there is a complete adjustment that needs to be made about the way we view God, His expectations of us, our view of life and the way we live life.

The Benefits of the Resurrection, Part 1

Speaker: Pastor Miguel Betancourt II

Series: Easter

Synopsis: John 20 records two great benefits of the Resurrection of Christ. In this message we look at the first benefit that is indicated by the repetition of the idea of "seeing" that occurs 15x's in 29 verses but is the translation of 4 different Greek words, each one indicating a different nuance to the idea of seeing. Tracing the use of the words, you can see the progress of faith by which the disciples "see" what Christ and the OT prophets had predicted! As you work your way through this chapter, you will discover four ways in which we can tell if we too have seen the risen Christ, not with our physical eye but with the eye of faith. As the resurrection impacted the lives of these first century disciples, so it can have the same impact on us!
