When they came to the crowd, a man approached Jesus and knelt before him. "Lord, have mercy on my son," he said. "He has seizures and is suffering greatly. He often falls into the fire or into the water. I brought him to your disciples, but they could not heal him." - Matthew 17:14-16 (NIV)
 
Jesus had a 100% success rate with casting out demons. But we are not Jesus. Some Christians are not delivered. Why? Please plan to be with us this weekend as Pastor Ray reveals how deliverance is always available—if we meet the conditions.

    DEMONOLOGY & DELIVERANCE: Part 4 – Flesh or Demons?
    P A R T  4 :
    F L E S H  O R  D E M O N S ?

    I say then, walk by the Spirit and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh. For the flesh desires what is against the Spirit, and the Spirit desires what is against the flesh; these are opposed to each other, so that you don’t do what you want. - Galatians 5:16-17 The Apologetics Bible
     
    Some of the spiritual warfare we encounter in our journey with Jesus is demonic in nature. But much of our opposition arises from what the New Testament calls “the desires of the flesh”. We need discernment to determine which is which!

    "All the answers the Holy Ghost gives concerning man are to humble man. Man is ready to flatter himself and one man to flatter another. But God tells us plainly what we are." - Puritan minister Joseph Caryl, (1602-1673)
     
    The same Bible that tells us God created man for dominion and "in His own image and likeness" paints a most painful picture of the condition of man as fallen from God. We hope you can be with us this weekend as we continue our War of the Worldviews series with Part 2 of the answer to one of life's greatest questions: "What is Man?"

    “The arguments of socialism resound through America like never before, and Christians must discern their persuasive but devious rhetoric and stand firm with a biblical answer. The answers to socialism are ‘the king is not God’ and ‘thou shalt not steal’.” - Dr. Joel McDurmon
     
    We hope you can be with us this weekend as Pastor Ray continues our "War of the Worldviews" series with a second message on "God Versus Socialism", an expose' of the socialist agenda, who is leading it, and how we can derail it.

    As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. - Proverbs 23:7
     
    Worldviews are composed of the ideas people hold that determine how they think and what they do. And those ideas have consequences! In this week's message, Pastor Ray will take an eye-opening look at what's really at stake in the 'war of the worldviews' and what happens in history when the Christian Church fails to win on the battlefield of ideas. It's a bigger deal than you may realize.

    WHAT SHOULD I DO AS THIS EXTRAORDINARY ELECTION IS ALMOST HERE
    "A national survey reveals nearly 40% of Americans are experiencing tension with family or friends over this election. The 2016 presidential campaign has been unprecedented and leaves us in a quandary:

    LAW & GRACE
    For 2000 years, the Church has repeatedly tended to slide off the highway of holiness into one of two theological ditches: Legalism (a misuse of the Law) and License (a misuse of Grace). The peril of the last generation was legalism. But this generation is facing the serious error of the other extreme: a "hyper-grace" message that teaches God's grace has done away with God's law. If we are to "earnestly contend for the faith once and for all delivered to the saints", we're going to have to go back to the Bible to discover the law's place in an age of grace!

    WOLF PROOF
    Jesus warned His disciples to beware of the false prophets who were really wolves in sheep's clothing and that they could be known by their fruit. But in his parting words to the elders in the church of Ephesus in Acts 20, the Apostle Paul offers counsel on how to "wolf-proof" God's church. The answer may surprise you.

    CONTENDING FOR THE FAITH
    Thomas Lunaker, physician to England's King Henry VIII, did not receive Christ until his 30's. Upon reading the Gospels for the first time, he was astounded at the chasm between what he read and what he saw in the spiritual condition of the Church. His conclusion: "Either these are not the Gospels, or we are not Christians." The battle for the Presidency is over. Perhaps now we can get on with an even more important conflict, recovering authentic Christianity in a postmodern world.

    STANDING UP FOR GOD IN A FALLING DOWN WORLD
    Political, moral and spiritual crises often go hand in hand. A look back at Israel during the days of the prophet Jeremiah proves that this isn't the first time a once godly nation finds itself teeter-tottering over the abyss of judgement. Does God have a word for His people in times like these? He does. And it may surprise you.

    WILL YOU BE THAT SOMEONE?
    In the 8th chapter of Acts, an Angel sent the Apostle Philip into the desert, where he found an Ethiopian eunuch reading Old Testament scripture, and asked him, "Do you understand what you are reading?" The Ethiopian replied with another question: "How can I unless SOMEONE guides me?" God is calling us to care about the multitudes of people all around us who are in a kind of spiritual desert, waiting for SOMEONE to help. Will you be that "someone"? You can be.
