THE POWER OF PRAYER & FASTING
January 1, 2023
Pastor Greg Temke

Fasting is one of the most overlooked commandments in the word of God. It is neglected more than it is practiced.
Jesus said that some things could not be answered except for prayer and fasting.

CHRISTMAS HOPE
December 18, 2022
Pastor Greg Temke

How we worship the babe determines everything we believe about Jesus.
The INCARNATION brings the understanding of deity.
God became a man and lived among us.

You can’t just skip over the baby and say, “It’s only a baby.” It’s the son of God.

“HOW BIG IS YOUR GOD”
December 11, 2022
Pastor Greg Temke

The Great and How Big is God.

ENTERING INTO GOD’S PRESENCE
December 4, 2022
PASTOR GREG TEMKE

The precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart, and in keeping them, there is great reward. We are trying to accumulate the passion of God, the blessings of God, and the victories of serving our God.

1. The principles, when honored, make compound blessings over time. Each principle that is honored positions us for God’s rewards. Each principle we violate robs us of the potential of those rewards.

2. When we choose not to walk before the Lord, we are robbed of the blessings of peace, joy, and confidence because of misplaced priorities.

ENTRUSTED BY GOD
November 27, 2022
Pastor Greg Temke

The blessings of God are available, but they are not automatic. The anointing is available, but it is not automatic.

The precepts, principles, and truths of the word of God are inexhaustible in the benefit they will provide us.

HOW WE INTERPRET GOD’S PROMISES DETERMINES HOW BLESSED WE ARE.

EMPOWERMENT FOR PROMOTION
November 13, 2022
Pastor Greg Temke

Look around the USA, you will see a very prosperous nation, but you will also see many leading quiet lives of desperation. Many trying to make it, trying to survive. Trying to find happiness but looking for it in all the wrong places. They have missed the joy and happiness because they have missed Jesus in their life.

October 9, 2022
Pastor Greg Temke

Learning the LIFE PRINCIPAL together in ministry.

“I’M BEING REAL, AND NOW YOU BE REAL.”
September 25, 2022
Pastor Greg Temke

We’ve all experienced that uncomfortable feeling when something comes between us and someone else. Most people don’t like confrontation. Many will try to ignore the problem, but it hangs there like an unpleasant odor that won’t go away. It’s like something left in the refrigerator that you forgot about.

Eventually, it will start stinking so bad that you must give it some attention.
Something was stinking between Paul & the Church at Corinth. He decided to set things straight with his brothers and sisters in Corinth.

The Corinthians should have known Paul’s integrity. They should have never let other people sway their opinions. Paul had led most of them to Christ. He had taught them, discipled them, and spent eighteen months ministering among them.

He loved them dearly, and he wanted that unsettled feeling, that unpleasant odor between them, gone.

DOWN BUT NOT OUT
September 18, 2022
Pastor Greg Temke

Some imagine a life with no ups and downs but a life that is level with unbroken joy. Sometimes what you hoped for-didn’t happen.

In life, you will have things that hit that you will not understand. We have to learn to TRUST GOD in the painful places of life. I believe that God’s power is abundantly available in our pain.

We want a perfect life. We want no wounds, no hurts, beautiful families, and no issues ever to hit our lives.

But I have learned that the wounding, the hurts, the cuts, and the attacks give you and me a weightiness that comes when somebody's been through something.

“A BETTER WAY TO LIVE # 1”
January 2, 2022
Pastor Greg Temke

Make 2022 your best year ever! There is a better way to live, than how we have lived in the past. If we are going to live a BETTER WAY, then we have to stop something in order to start something. We must stop certain activities. We have to stop eating badly in order to start eating well.

A good question is, “How are we doing stewarding our life?” Stewardship is an INSIDE JOB, before it is an OUTSIDE JOB. In this Sermon Series, “A Better Way to Live,” we will discuss living better Spiritually, Emotionally, Mentally, Financially and in every way.”

“It does not matter what was done to you, what has happened to you; it does not matter what people have done to you, it does not matter how misused, mistreated, misunderstood you were unless you let it MATTER.”

THINGS WE NEED TO DO:
• We need to forget our bad memories.
• We need to forgive other people.
• We need to forgive ourselves.
• We need to finish the class.
