1 Tim: 5 Wise Guidelines: Healthy Family

God wants us to be a healthy church family. Pastor Chris Garrison shows how Paul, in 1 Timothy 5:17-25, outlines practices that allow church leaders to work well and lead the flock. Also,  we as a church must relate to our leaders well; it is part of our worship.

1 Timothy 4:11-16 The Impact of Integrity

Integrity is rare in our culture. It is often disguised as pride as we embrace the character issues of others and ourselves. Pastor Chris Garrison leads us through 1 Timothy 4:11-16 as we learn that to have Biblical integrity, we must live a life that is according to Jesus' way and leads others to find Christ. Biblical integrity is what brings us real life.

1 Timothy 4:6-10 “In It to Win It”

Pastor Chris Garrison continues the series in1 Timothy. Spiritual training produces victory in life. In 1 Timothy 4:6-10 we learn that spiritual training requires us to change our focus and our purpose in life. God gives us opportunities to grow in Him and to train for godliness, but that requires us to choose to learn. Spiritual training requires specific, intentional work and time. "...we labor and strive because we have put our hope in the living God, who is the Savior of all people..." We CAN have victory!

“Loyalty Days” Philippians 3:20

This weekend of Loyalty Days is traditionally celebrated here, on the Long Beach Peninsula, the first weekend in May. After a lively congregational discussion about what makes America great, and what makes being an American challenging, Pastor Chris Garrison preaches from Philippians 3:20. We are challenged to ask, What am I being loyal to as a citizen? How can I actively be loyal to a nation that is divided among itself and does not fully represent the Kingdom values that come from God? For those who believe in Jesus, we are not only citizens of a nation, we are also citizens of Heaven. Pastor Chris looks at the nature of Heavenly citizenship, the marks of that citizenship, and the effects of it on our world and lives.
