  • Free PowerPoint Sermon Series: Strong to the Finish Parts 1, 2 & 3 (Including, Signs of a Dying Church)

    During this time of the Winter Olympics, we look at God’s comparison of athletics to the Christian walk. Using Christ’s messages to the seven churches (book of Revelation) and Paul’s metaphor of running a race, this three-part series explains why a dying church is not one that is losing members, but rather, one that is losing zeal and focus on our God-given mission. Lesson three features a very inspiring song (written by a young girl) called “Voice of the Martyrs.” […]

"Give me one hundred preachers who fear nothing but sin and desire nothing but God, and I care not whether they be clergymen or laymen, they alone will shake the gates of Hell and set up the kingdom of Heaven upon Earth." Read the rest of this entry »
This summer has been a scorcher for park ministry. In the past, on bad weather days, we have used the ‘party room’ at the Cedar Ridge Apts. However, their Christian manager has since moved and a “Pharaoh who knew not Joseph” has replaced her. Now, the once free... Read the rest of this entry »

 

John Wesley said:

 It is no marvel that the devil does not love field preaching! Neither do I; I love a commodious room, a soft cushion, a handsome pulpit. But where is my zeal if I do not trample all these underfoot in order to save one more soul?”

Give me one hundred preachers who fear nothing but sin and desire nothing but God, and I care not whether they be clergymen or laymen, they alone will shake the gates of Hell and set up the kingdom of Heaven upon Earth.”

ABOUT FIELD PREACHING:

Every believer is called to preach the gospel — it is our “Great Commission,” the final decree of our Savior. Obedience to the Great Commission and our personal transformation into the image of Christ are the reasons we continue on Earth. Let us pursue both wholeheartedly.

Did Jesus really mean it?

In our hearts, we know He did, and that’s the proverbial “elephant in the room.”  Perhaps we can alter it, dress it up, make it look as if Jesus actually said, Go… worship, love one another, do service, do miracles, study the Word, adorn the sanctuary, support missionaries, etc.

Perhaps we can simply toss one of these other, perfectly scriptural mandates over the big elephant and then tell ourselves that we are, by some stretch of the imagination, sort of obeying the “Great Commission.”

Still, we never quite feel the release and fulfillment that comes from full obedience. Instead, we feel selfish and rich with blessings amidst a dying generation.

Jesus — Our Example

Jesus went to Simon Peter’s house and healed his mother-in-law of a fever. She rose from her sick-bed and began serving Him. Soon, the whole city gathered at their door and He healed many.

Wow! People were coming, miracles were happening, the home was welcoming, and the lady of the house was serving food. Many a minister would extend the dates of such a plush engagement.

Yet, Jesus wasn’t comfortable — in fact, He was restless:

“Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where He prayed.

Simon and his companions went to look for him, and when they found him, they exclaimed: ‘Everyone is looking for you.”

Jesus replied, “Let us go somewhere else — to the nearby villages — so I can preach there also. That is why I have come.”  Mark 1:35-38

The Master’s Plan

There are many things we can train believers to do that will impact unbelievers, but we must never forget that the “big gun” in our Gospel arsenal is PREACHING itself.

Since God in his wisdom saw to it that the world would never know him through human wisdom, he has used our foolish preaching to save those who believe. I Cor. 1:21 NLT

Yet preaching the Good News is not something I can boast about. I am compelled by God to do it. How terrible for me if I didn’t preach the Good News!” 1 Cor. 9:16 NLT

OUR preaching is HIS main way of speaking to the lost:

So then faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the word of God.” Romans 10:17

And how are they to hear without a preacher?” Rom. 10:14 WNT

So Send I You

And how are men to preach unless they have been SENT.” Rom.10:15 WNT

A few believers are born with the ability to evangelize alone. The rest of us need the rest of us. We need training, organization, leadership and support.

This is what Jesus provided for His disciples.

And He appointed twelve, so that they would be with Him and that He could send them out to preach.” Mark 3:14 NAS

 

Organize Local Gospel Meetings

At the same time, He doesn’t force believers to go out alone without the support of other believers:

And how are men to preach unless they have been SENT.” Rom.10:15 WNT

Let’s revive the idea of Gospel Meetings (i.e., meetings that take place anywhere but in the church itself). The venues can be downtown shops, two-car garages, back-yard pools, etc. They can be geared to any age group — kids, teens or adults.

 

Do the math!! Putting together two timid but willing believers from each of five local churches would form a team of ten gospel workers. What more do we need to hold a campaign for the purpose of preaching to the lost?

 

Elijah was disheartened because he believed he was alone in his zeal, but to his surprise, God revealed there were actually 7,000 people with his level of commitment – but they were scattered. Christian leaders must identify and gather the willing workers scattered in their church, city, county, state, etc.

 

Military, business and sports leaders alike, know that winning teams must complete five vital stages before they can declare “mission accomplished!”

 

1] Gather a Team

2] Train the Team

3] Plan the Mission

4] Motivate The Team

5] Execute the Plan

 

Einstein said :

Vision without execution is hallucination.”

To “SEND” — Inspire, train, organize, and lead willing Christians into public gospel preaching for the purpose of winning the lost.

Jesus started with two, which then grew to a mere twelve. Let us emulate Him — gather a few willing followers, train them and take them out to preach, and see what happens.

 

Let’s join together in our efforts to preach to the souls living in our area. Indeed, there are a handful in your church who want to, but they feel inadequate for the task.

 

I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.” John 9:4 KJV

 

Woe to me if I do not preach the gospel!” I Cor. 9:16

From Our Heart to Yours

In this article, we explain our burden for outdoor preaching and our vision for the future.

042226: Where I Am: Heaven, Eternity, and Our Life Beyond the Now

 

Where I Am: Heaven, Eternity, and Our Life Beyond the Now
By Billy Graham / Thomas Nelson

 

Shortly after his 95th birthday in 2013, Mr. Graham, knowing that his time on earth draws to a close, declared,”When I die, tell others that I’ve gone to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ–that’s where I am.”

In this latest reflection, Mr. Graham shares the same message of hope he’s proclaimed for decades, coupled with the sober reflection of a mature faith. In each of these short 36 chapters, he explains what the Bible says about eternity, and the reality that each of us chooses where we’ll spend life after death. Whether you’re drawing closer to that moment of eternal significance, or simply considering the Bible’s claims, Graham’s words will give you faith to believe in Jesus’ promise that, “Where I am, there you may be also.”
