Got Questions: Part 4: Death
Sunday, June 24, 2012 :: Brian Lightsey

Got Questions: Part 2: Is Jesus Really the Only Way to Heaven?
Sunday, June 10, 2012 :: Brian Lightsey

Isn’t it arrogant for Christians to insist that Jesus is the one and only way to heaven? In a day of religious pluralism, political correctness, and tolerance, this kind of claim that Jesus is the only way to heaven can seem narrow-minded and even bigoted. This message will address this controversial question.

Got Questions: Part 1: Does God Exist?
Sunday, June 3, 2012 :: Brian Lightsey

There is in human existence no more profound question demanding an answer than "Is there a God?" The question must be answered by every living person, and the answer is far-reaching in its implications. This message gives some evidences for the existence of God.

Flip Side: Part 8: Greed to Generosity
Sunday, May 27, 2012 :: Brian Lightsey

Greed. It causes us to over work, over spend, and over rule some of our deepest values. Greed obliterates the line between needs and wants and becomes an addiction that is impossible to fulfill. This message will talk about life on the flip side of greed.

Flip Side: Part 7: Gluttony to Loyalty
Sunday, May 20, 2012 :: Brian Lightsey

According to research of Eric Schlosser, author of Fast Food Nation, "The Golden Arches are now more widely recognized than the Christian cross." We don't just eat to live, we live to eat. This message will talk about what life looks like on the flip side of gluttony and consumption.

Flip Side: Part 6: Envy to Security
Sunday, May 13, 2012 :: Brian Lightsey

We often don't think that envy is a very big deal. In fact, it is the motivation that makes us competitive. However, we speak of people being green with envy. When people are green, they are sick! This message will talk about life on the flip side of envy.

Flip Side: Part 5: Lust to Purity
Sunday, May 6, 2012 :: Brian Lightsey

There are more pornographic stores in America than there are McDonald’s outlets. Let's face it, lust looms large in our world today. This message will take a look at the complex subject of lust and what life looks like on the flip side.

Flip Side: Part 4: Laziness to Dependability
Sunday, April 29, 2012 :: Brian Lightsey

Our culture has produced a colossal collection of workaholics. Laziness is something we definitely don’t deal with…or do we? What if laziness was not just about being slack in our work? What if it has more to do with whether or not we are active in the important things of life? This message will take a fresh look at laziness and challenge you toward an active and productive lifestyle on the flip side.

Flip Side: Part 3: Anger to Tranquility
Sunday, April 22, 2012 :: Brian Lightsey

Leonard Ingram, founder of the Anger Institute of Chicago, contends that 1 out of every 7 Americans is on the verge of exploding in an act of rage. How about you? Are you angry? Are you a spewer or stuffer when it comes to dealing with your anger? This message will talk about life on the flip side of rage.

Flip Side: Part 2: Pride to Humility
Sunday, April 15, 2012 :: Brian Lightsey

What is the deepest, darkest, most dysfunctional sin that we have to face? Pride. It is also the oldest sin and is the foundation of all other sins. This message will talk about life on the flip side of pride.

Flip Side: Part 1: Death to Life
Sunday, April 8, 2012 :: Brian Lightsey

When you look into the mirror, what do you see? Rage? Laziness? Envy? Greed? Lust? We all have deep-seated issues that can mark our lives and control us. But what if your life could be different? What if there was power to change? We invite you to join us for this sermon series called, The Flip Side. We pray you will see and experience what life looks like on the flip side!

NU ME: Part 7: Life in the Spirit: Romans 8:5-13
Sunday, February 26, 2012 :: Brian Lightsey

NU ME: Part 6: No Condemnation: Romans 8:1-4
Sunday, February 19, 2012 :: Brian Lightsey

Sunday, February 12, 2012 :: Brian Lightsey

NU ME: Part 4: Why Rules Don't Work: Romans 6:15-7:13
Sunday, February 5, 2012 :: Brian Lightsey

When it comes to change or doing the right thing, many people think it is about keeping rules, regulations, rituals, or even practicing religion. This message will talk about this whole idea of rule-keeping and whether or not it works.

NU ME: Part 3: Breaking the Power of Sin: Romans 6:1-14
Sunday, January 29, 2012 :: Brian Lightsey

Living Beyond Belief: Part 4: Relating OUT to the World
Sunday, September 4, 2011 :: Brian Lightsey

The life God wants us to live starts...now...and God desires us to live lives beyond just believing. We are to experience life in Jesus Christ. How do we do that? It starts with relating UP to God and relating In to others. But it can't stop there. We must relate OUT to the world.
