End Times—Revelation

Pastor James Weaver / Ullestad Chapel

With all that’s going on in the world today it seems apparent that what the Bible describes in the book of Revelation is coming closer to fulfillment.

 

The Genius of Jesus

Jesus made seven statements on the cross. These statements reveal His heart and give us the substance we need for a victorious life in Christ.

Kids’ Brains & Screens

End Times—Revelation

Pastor James Weaver / Rm 224

With all that’s going on in the world today it seems apparent that what the Bible describes in the book of Revelation is coming closer to fulfillment.

 

The 80 / 20 Rule

We’ll be studying Luke’s account of the life of Jesus and a Biblical perspective of the supernatural.

 

Ignite Your Prayer Life

Tammy Clark / Rm 211

Why pray? God calls us to do it. The devil tries to distract us from doing it. We often struggle to do it. Yet the more we connect with God through prayer, the more the Holy Spirit ignites our passion for God and His purposes.

The Book of Acts

Pastor Jeff Hill / Main Building, Ullestad Chapel

The coming of the Holy Spirit and the display of His power in the lives of His people is what fueled the early church. Perhaps the book would be better named the Acts of the Holy Spirit!
