Synopsis: While the 6th request in "The Lord's Prayer" (Matt. 6:13a) is a plea for protection speaking negatively, this 7th request in the next statement, "but deliver us from evil," is a plea for protection speaking positively. Both parts together communicate a message for a desire for power over sin and Satan. Tonight's message unpacks this 7th request and takes note of three important matters that the Lord Jesus raises so we understand for what it is we are really praying. There's some exciting and encouraging truth to share with you here!
Synopsis: As we continue our series on personal renewal, we move on from learning what God has to say about the biblical use of the mind that is key to our growth in Christlikeness, to another component of renewal that is key to our success in Christlikeness--The Battle in our Mind. It's imperative to remember not only where the spiritual battle lies but also exactly what is at stake in this long war for the control of our hearts. If we would win The Battle in our Minds, there are three things we need to know, believe, and act upon that are presented in today's text of Scripture. This message covers the first two of these truths.
Synopsis: Tonight our missionaries, Roger Perrott and his family, shared an update of their work overseas. The video portion of his presentation was not included in audio file--just a verbal update and then a brief message challenging us with how to pray effectively for missionaries.
Synopsis: In this final message from Philippians 4:8, we take a look at the eight filters through which all our thoughts are to be processed. Our text today reveals two ways in which we can use our minds biblically so that we love the Lord with all our minds (Cf. Mark 12:30). Biblical thinking is key to personal renewal.
Synopsis: Philippians 4:8 contains eight filters through which our thoughts are to be processed. Using our minds biblically is a key component in the process of personal renewal. This message looks at the first of these filters.

Synopsis: Ever ask someone or have someone ask you, "Why would a person want to get baptized?" or "When does a person get baptized?" or "What does water baptism picture? What does it illustrate?" God's Word gives us the answers! Tonight's message was delivered in preparation of seeing three individuals get baptized in our evening service tonight.
Synopsis: God is concerned with how we use our minds--the way we think, the kind of thoughts we think. We ought to as well. So the question before us then is this, "How does God want me to use my mind?" Our text today answers that question.
Synopsis: From this sixth prayer request in "The Lord's Prayer," we can extract four key truths that help us to grasp the full significance of what is being said when we offer this request to the Lord. Tonight's message covers the fourth and final truth.
Synopsis: In Philippians 4:5-7, God talks to us about the matter of peace within. In 4:9, God reveals the source of peace--Himself! Sandwiched in between these verses talking about God's peace is the instruction given to us in 4:8 that is so vital in experiencing that peace. Here, God teaches us how to use our minds biblically. If you and I are to enjoy God's peace within, we must use our minds biblically. God's Word shows us to do that.
Synopsis: In today's message we look at the third of three truths that indicate to us what is involved in renewing our minds. This third truth also answers the question, "what does renewing the mind" look like in daily life?
