Sermon March 17, 2007 : A call for obedience

Have you ever known you’re just supposed to do something and you just didn’t want to do it. Maybe it was someone like, when you’re younger your parents told you to do something and you thought, ‘you know, I just don’t want to do that. I’m not going to do that.’  Read More »

Sermon March 10, 2007 : Why do I have to suffer?

It’s very fitting that we talk about living in outside of the areas of comfort, because the thing I want to talk about tonight is actually directly related to that idea: living outside the areas of comfort. And in fact, I even want to take it to a further extreme and living in the areas of discomfort, living in the areas of pain, living in the areas of suffering; to take it that far.  Read More »

Sermon March 4, 2007 : Rev. Eugene Santiago - A victorious life

Bound and addicted for 15 years, the Lord led me to Teen Challenge Brockton. On Feb. 14 2000. I was lost and desperate, but I had chosen to continue following the Lord Jesus Christ in His perfect Will. The Lord has blessed me with a wife and a child Angela and Zoey Grace Santiago. He continues to bless me again because I have chosen to follow His perfect will. Today I can proudly say that through Teen Challenge Ministry and the Assemblies of God, I have received Pastoral credentials, and I will continue in God's perfect will. Matthew 6:33  Read More »

Sermon March 3, 2007 : Ephesians 4 (Part 6)

I ask you to go to Ephesians, chapter 4 and we’re advancing. It may seem that we’re not but I think we are making progress, and we are touching on things. It is such a dense passage though, that it leads us into new areas and there’s a progression here that is very beautiful and there is so much substance.  Read More »

Sermon February 24, 2007 : Ephesians 4 (Part 5)

Let's go to the word of God in Ephesians, chapter 4 and I want to pick up where I left off last time, it’s verse 13 and we’re going to go on from there to verse 16. Actually I will begin at 11 so that you get a sense of the continuity of what we’re speaking about.  Read More »

Sermon February 17, 2007 : Unleashing the Joy of the Lord

Philippians Chapter 4, starting with verse 2. As you’re searching the word you’ve noticed that Pastor Roberto is not here, and he’s not here for good reasons. He is in Spain. I don’t know what time it is in Spain, he could be in the middle of lunch or in the middle of the siesta, which is a legal requirement in Spain, or he could be preparing for a talk in… about to cast out 16 demons from somebody up there. Whatever it is, could you all agree with me right now to bless Pastor Roberto in the name of Jesus.  Read More »

Sermon February 10, 2007 : Ephesians 4 (Part 4)

Why don’t we go to the word? And I’ve been kind of stuck in a passage that I thought, well it’s going to be about the fourth time that I preach on it, because I’m going through the book of Ephesians, by the way, if you haven’t been here in a while. I think I haven’t preached in two or three weeks because of different situations and we’re going through with a sequence and this passage is so rich in Chapter 4, of Ephesians, that really, I mean, I thought it would be a waste if we skipped over, just in the interest of all saying, well, we’re going ahead.  Read More »

Sermon January 20, 2007 : A Potluck Dinner - What nourishment are you bringing to church?

How many of you have ever been to a potluck dinner? You know, it’s one of those dinners where everyone brings their favorite dish. They bring either, you know, a main dish, or side, or something. And you bring it all together, and everyone gets to eat everyone’s different food.  Read More »

Sermon January 13, 2007 : Ephesians 4 (Part 3)

Let’s go to Ephesians, Chapter 4. And for the third time, I’m going to choose the same text, the same passage and go over it again. Remember what I said last time that, you know, God’s word is multilayered, multidimensional.  Read More »

Sermon January 14, 2007 : Homosexuality - a detour on the road towards sexual maturity

Hello, buenos días. I wish I could speak more of your beautiful language. I grew up in Southern California where you really need to speak Spanish, but I never learned because I’m stubborn and stupid, so forgive me. I do a lot of work within the Latin world. Doors have opened there for us to equip the church to deal with broken people, people that really love Jesus, but who struggle in deep and shameful areas of their lives.  Read More »
