Greater Than Any Priest  Hebrews 4:14-5:10

To whom do you go when you need to draw close to God? We are blessed to have people who help us along in our spiritual life, but there is no one who can help us in time of need like Jesus does.

The Sword of God's Word  Hebrews 4:12-13

God's word is a sword that serves in more ways than one.

The Sword of God's Word - June 23, 2019 - Bob Hepokoski
00:00 / 00:00
Entering Rest  Hebrews 3:7-4:11

God has a rest for you and He invites you to enter it. To find His rest is a wonderful privilege. To miss it is an unacceptable tragedy. Entering His rest depends upon what happens in your heart when you hear His voice.

Entering Rest - June 16, 2019 - Bob Hepokoski
00:00 / 00:00
Greater Than Moses  Hebrews 3:1-6

In all the pages of Scripture, there is no one whose life can compare with that of Moses, except for Jesus. Jesus surpasses Moses in every measure of greatness. Hebrews 3 reminds us to be wary of whom we place on pedestals.

Greater Than Moses - May 26, 2019 - Bob Hepokoski
00:00 / 00:00
He Who Sanctifies  Hebrews 2:10-18

God's will is for you is to be sanctified, meaning to become like Jesus, holy and set apart. The good news is Jesus Himself is He who sanctifies us. 

He Who Sanctifies - May 19, 2019 - Bob Hepokoski
00:00 / 00:00
Beyond Fear of Death  Hebrews 2:14-15

The fear of death enslaves people. Jesus sets us free from that fear. (This message was given on Easter Sunday in 2016, but has been re-posted because it expounds on this portion of the letter to the Hebrews.)

Beyond Fear of Death - March 27, 2016 - Bob Hepokoski
00:00 / 00:00
Pay Much Closer Attention  Hebrews 2:1-4

Those who believe in Jesus have received the world's greatest message from the universe's most reliable source. What happens if we fail to pay attention to what we've heard?

Pay Much Closer Attention - May 12, 2019 - Bob Hepokoski
00:00 / 00:00
Greater Than The Angels   Hebrews 1:4-14, 2:5-9

What do we really know about angels? Only what God has shown us. And one of the New Testament passages that tells us most about angels is Hebrews 1. Yet these words weren't written primarily to tell us about angels, but about Jesus and His surpassing greatness.

Greater Than The Angels - May 5, 2019 - Bob Hepokoski
00:00 / 00:00
God Speaks   Hebrews 1:1-4

God has spoken in many ways throughout the ages, but Hebrews tells us that in these last days He has spoken to us most completely and most perfectly through His Son. In the midst of the communication overload that bombards us every day, do we still hear Him?

God Speaks - April 28, 2019 - Bob Hepokoski

Return to the Land Between

Pastor Bob's farewell message addresses the subject of hard transitions. The experiences of the Israelites in the wilderness offer important lessons as to how we can grow spiritually through the difficult and unsettled periods of life.

Return to the Land Between - August 11, 2019 - Bob Hepokoski

Overcome Temptation  Luke 4:1-13

Jesus was tempted, but never sinned. So He is our ultimate example of how to overcome temptation.

Overcome Temptation - March 24, 2019 - Bob Hepokoski
00:00 / 00:00
Jesus the Deliverer   Luke 8:26-39

The Bible clearly indicates that demons are real and can cause great harm in the lives of people. What do we need to know about them? What should we do?

Jesus the Deliverer - March 31, 2019 - Bob Hepokoski
00:00 / 00:00
Jesus the Healer  Luke 13:10-17

During His earthly ministry, Jesus healed many people from all kinds of afflictions. He is still the Great Healer and the Scripture instructs us to seek Him when we desire physical healing for ourselves or for others.

Jesus the Healer - April 7, 2019 - Bob Hepokoski
00:00 / 00:00
Overcoming Failure   Luke 22:31-34

Our faith is prone to fail us in times of testing. These words that Jesus spoke to Peter give us courage to stand in the time of testing and instruction about what to do when our faith fails.

Overcoming Failure - April 14, 2019 - Bob Hepokoski
00:00 / 00:00
Overcoming Death   Luke 23:44-48, 24:36-48

Jesus died for us. Jesus rose again. This is God's plan for you to overcome death. Those who receive this message are assured of a place in a future resurrection to eternal life!

God Created   Genesis 1:1-25

As God Himself tells the story of the beginning of all things, we learn lessons that are essential to our understanding of God, life and the world in which we live. 

God Created - January 13, 2019 - Bob Hepokoski
00:00 / 00:00
In the Image of God   Genesis 1:26-28

God created us to be like Him in ways that no other creature can claim. He tells us that we are created in His image and likeness. It is only when we understand the implications of that nature that we will know who we truly are and be capable of properly relating to other persons. 

In the Image of God - January 20, 2019 - Bob Hepokoski
00:00 / 00:00
Male and Female He Created Them   Genesis 1:27

The contemporary issue of gender and gender identity has come to be a matter of public debate, with many voices speaking. What does God have to say about gender? 

Male and Female He Created Them - January 27, 2019 - Bob Hepokoski
00:00 / 00:00
Have Dominion   Genesis 1:28-31

God gave human beings a unique place in His creation. How does God intend for us to relate to the rest of Creation?

Have Doninion - February 3, 2019 - Bob Hepokoski
00:00 / 00:00
The Seventh Day   Genesis 2:1-3

What does it mean for us to "keep the Sabbath day"? Does it mean going to a church service? Not working? Or is the Sabbath something that is even meant for Christians to observe. To answer these questions, we need to consider why God set apart the seventh day in the first place.

The Seventh Day - February 10, 2019 - Bob Hepokoski
00:00 / 00:00
God's Original Design for Marriage   Genesis 2:18-25

God designed marriage to bring us blessing.  Yet sadly, our me-first culture has sought to redesign marriage in an effort to improve on God's original plan.  The sad result has been that any short term gains are overshadowed by the long term costs of not following God's original design for marriage.

God's Original Design for Marriage - February 17, 2019 - Bob Hepokoski
00:00 / 00:00
The Serpent   Genesis 3:1-5

God created a perfect world for Adam and Eve.  But there was an enemy who came to sow the seeds of sin and death.  Genesis introduces us to our enemy, the devil. 

The Serpent - February 24, 2019 - Bob Hepokoski
00:00 / 00:00
The Fall   Genesis 2:5-18, 3:6-24

The world that we live in does not have much resemblance to the paradise where God intended for us to dwell. It has been corrupted because of sin and its consequences. This is the event theologians refer to as "The Fall" and it explains so much about the world we live in. 

The Fall - March 3, 2019 - Bob Hepokoski
00:00 / 00:00
Hope In Light of The Curse   Genesis 3:14-24

No sooner had God brought His curse upon the world because of sin, than He also gave His first promise of a Savior who would offer us redemption.

Hope In Light of The Curse - March 10, 2019 - Mark Shea
00:00 / 00:00
Mary's Worship   Luke 1:46-55

A young woman, confronted by dramatically life changing circumstances, Mary responded with deep faith and spontaneous worship. Her words of praise are an example for all who have believed in her Son, showing us how to worship the Lord.

Mary's Worship - December 2, 2018 - Bob Hepokoski
00:00 / 00:00
Joseph's Dilemma   Matthew 1:18-25

The miraculous events surrounding Jesus' birth left Joseph with the most difficult decision he had ever faced. Yet he dealt with his dilemma in an exemplary manner, leaving us an example for the times we are challenged by difficult choices.

Joseph's Dilemma - December 9, 2018 - Bob Hepokoski
00:00 / 00:00
The Wise Men's Journey   Matthew 2:1-12

What would prompt these men from the east to undertake a 1000 mile journey to worship and give precious gifts to a Child? And more importantly, what lessons about seeking Jesus can we learn from the magi?

The Wise Men's Journey - December 16, 2018 - Bob Hepokoski
00:00 / 00:00
Herod's Rejection   Matthew 2:1-8, 16-18

Like all great stories, the Christmas story has a villain - King Herod. What can we learn from a villain? For some, the greatest lesson of the events surrounding the birth of Jesus may come from the life of King Herod. 

Herod's Rejection - December 23, 2018 - Bob Hepokoski
00:00 / 00:00
One In God's Truth    Ephesians 4:1-6

The unity of Christians is a precious gift of God that we must care for with diligence. Ephesians 4 shows us two ways that we preserver our unity. We maintain our unity through Christ-like attitudes and holding to the essential truths that God has revealed to us.

ONE in God's Truth - November 4, 2018 - Bob Hepokoski
00:00 / 00:00
One In Agape    1 Corinthians 13

God places a high priority on His people loving one another. The theme of love an unity runs throughout the New Testament, but nowhere is it spoken more powerfully and eloquently than 1 Corinthians 13.

ONE in Agape - November 18, 2018
00:00 / 00:00
One In Christian Liberty    Romans 14:1-9

We are one because we share a common faith in our one and only Savior. But we come from different backgrounds and often have different convictions. How do we deal with our differences so they don't compromise our unity?

ONE in Christian Liberty - November 11, 2018 - Bob Hepokoski

00:00 / 00:00
Called to Deeper Grace    Romans 1:1-7

The call of God is an invitation to experience His grace in a new and deeper way. The Scripture shows at least three ways that God calls us.

Called to Deeper Grace - September 23, 2018 - Bob Hepokoski
00:00 / 00:00
Called to Good Works    Ephesians 2:10

God cares about good works. He created you to do good works and He has prepared good works for you to do. Sometimes that will change the course of your day. Sometimes it will change the course of your whole life.

Called to Good Works - September 30, 2018 - Bob Hepokoski
00:00 / 00:00
Unforeseen Paths    Acts 26:9-20

When we follow God's call, we will find ourselves on unforeseen paths, in places we never expected and involved with people we never imagined.

Unforeseen Paths - October 14, 2018 - Bob Hepokoski
00:00 / 00:00
Here I Am    Isaiah 6:1-12

We should not expect that God will call us in the dramatic way that Isaiah was called, but we should always be prepared to accept His call in the way that Isaiah did.

Here I Am - October 21, 2018 - Bob Hepokoski
00:00 / 00:00
