  • Faith and Action (James 3:13-18) - “Godly Wisdom” June 18, 2017

    22/06/2017 Duración: 36min

    Everyone of us has an about what we think true wisdom is. The question is where does this wisdom come from – God or somewhere else? When we listen to (or give) the wrong kind of wisdom, it can cause problems we often can’t imagine. On Sunday, we discuss some ways in which we can be certain that we are listening to true godly wisdom.

  • “Seeing in Gospel” (Genesis 4:4-7) - June 11, 2017

    19/06/2017 Duración: 35min

    Sometimes statements like “giving our first fruits” are difficult to transition from the abstract to the literal. Often we can take this a certain way and be guilted into placing offerings before God or see our offerings as an equation to receive even more earthly resources. When we give financially, with our time, and any way else motives like guilt and earthly gain shouldn’t be a part of it at all.

  • Faith and Action (James 3:1-12) - “The Power of the Tongue” June 4, 2017

    19/06/2017 Duración: 41min

    Many of us are unaware that what we say has tremendous power to heal or wound. On Sunday, we learned more about how seriously we should take our responsibility as stewards of our tongues, because with our tongues we can either bless or to curse – much more than we probably think.

  • “…and they left everything and followed Him” (Luke 5:1-11) - May 28, 2017

    28/05/2017 Duración: 41min

    When Jesus calls us to follow Him, He takes us on an adventure – if we are really willing to follow. On Sunday, we’ll take a break from our ‘Faith and Action’ series in order to discuss some important things we believe God is calling us into as a church.

  • Faith and Action (James 2:14-26) - “Faith and Action!” May 21, 2017

    22/05/2017 Duración: 37min

    Does believing the right things make us right with God? Does what we do make us right with God? James tells us that it’s both. He’s not saying that we can earn our salvation by doing good things. Rather, he’s saying that the kind of faith that saves us will naturally impact what we do.

  • Faith and Action (James 2:1-13) - “Everyone Matters!” May 14, 2017

    17/05/2017 Duración: 39min

    At West City Fellowship, we like to say ‘you matter to God and you matter to us.’ But why do we say that – really? And what might that belief really look like if we put it into practice? We talk about that with this message, “Everyone Matters,” as we continue in our Faith and Action series in the Letter from Jesus’ brother James.

  • Faith and Action (James 1:19-27) - “Doers of the Word” May 7, 2017

    09/05/2017 Duración: 37min

    We have an expression, ‘talk is cheap.’ That is, we can say we believe something – but if our actions don’t reflect that belief, then maybe we don’t really believe it as much as we thought. Yet, true blessing comes when our beliefs reflect our actions and our actions reflect our beliefs.

  • Faith and Action (James 1:9-18) - “Trial and Temptation” April 30, 2017

    02/05/2017 Duración: 37min

    There are many things that can tempt us when we are going though trials. One of these temptations is to begin to doubt that God is good. Does He really have our best interests at heart? Can He really be trusted? Jesus’ brother James has some helpful counsel for us when we face these and other temptations during trials.

  • Faith and Action (James 1:1-8) - “Double-minded Prayer” April 23, 2017

    25/04/2017 Duración: 46min

    In this podcast, we begin a new series called, ‘Faith and Action,’ in the Letter of James. Many of us would like to know what it means to pray for things with bold faith – ‘without doubting.’ How does enduring the trials in our lives enable us to do that?

  • Easter Sunday (Ephesians 1:15-23) - “The Power of the Resurrection” April 16, 2017

    16/04/2017 Duración: 42min

    The Apostle Paul loved the Ephesian church, and he prayed that they would know Jesus in a profound way. One of the ways Paul prayed that they would know Jesus is through the power of His resurrection. Easter is a great time remember that God displayed His power mightily when He raised Jesus from the dead, and He wants us to know that same power. It is one of the ways we come to know God, rather than merely knowing about Him.

  • King and Kingdom (Matthew 11:1-19 ) - “The Crisis of Faith” April 09, 2017

    12/04/2017 Duración: 36min

    Following Jesus into hostile territory can get challenging at times and even lead to a crisis of faith. If you’ve ever had a crisis of faith or seen someone else have one, you know it can be a disorienting and devastating time in our lives. So what should we do when this happens? In this message, we look at a crisis of faith that John the Baptist experienced and how Jesus instructed him and those watching to handle it.

  • (Exodus 3) - “The Presumption of Grace” April 2, 2017

    05/04/2017 Duración: 39min

    At different points in each of our lives God has called or will call us to something beyond ourselves. Situations where we feel like we are inadequate or unprepared to succeed. This can cause us to feel guilty, sad, or even angry at God and ourselves. On Sunday we will talk about why God does this and how success in these situations is more attainable then we realize.

  • King and Kingdom (Matthew 10:34-42) - “As Sheep among Wolves Part 2” March 26, 2017

    28/03/2017 Duración: 38min

    Last week we began discussion how when Jesus call us into the harvest, He calls us into a battle between two Kingdoms. He doesn’t want us to be naïve, but He doesn’t want us to be anxious about it. Rather, He just wants us to be prepared. Sometimes following Him into this battle takes a toll on some of our most important relationships, so Jesus wants us to be prepared to think about those costs with the right perspective.

  • King and Kingdom (Matthew 10:16-33) - “As Sheep among Wolves” March 19, 2017

    21/03/2017 Duración: 39min

    In calling us into the harvest, Jesus calls us into a battle between two Kingdoms. As part of our preparation, Jesus sets realistic expectations about the battlefield into which He will send us. Jesus does not want us to be naïve, but neither does He want us to worry – He just wants us to be prepared!

  • King and Kingdom (Matthew 10:1-15) - “Jesus Sends His Apostles” March 12, 2017

    13/03/2017 Duración: 34min

    Jesus called the Twelve Apostle to Himself and gave them an assignment to go out into the community and proclaim the Kingdom of God. Does Jesus’ assignment apply to us in any way? If so, how?

  • King and Kingdom (Matthew 9:18-38) - “The Adventure of the Harvest” March 5, 2017

    07/03/2017 Duración: 37min

    Jesus said ‘the harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few.’ This statement almost seems hard to believe considering the incredible things Jesus was doing in proclaiming the Kingdom of God. Yet, there are several things that might keep us from joining Jesus on this adventure of the harvest.

  • King and Kingdom (Matthew 9:1-17 ) - “The Joy Revolution” February 26, 2017

    27/02/2017 Duración: 34min

    If we do not realize how desperate we are for God, then we miss the joy of relationship with Him. One the other hand, if we are constantly haunted by a feeling that we can never be good enough for God, our joy is stolen. But when we realize that God has made a way for desperate, broken, imperfect people to experience the joy of relationship with Him, then we can really celebrate. But this seems so counterintuitive to us that it requires a revolution in our thinking. Sunday we continued our King and Kingdom series in Matthew’s Gospel.

  • King and Kingdom (Matthew 8:18-34) - “Following Jesus” February 19, 2017

    21/02/2017 Duración: 37min

    Jesus calls us to follow Him and He knows what we need to let go of in order to receive the blessings of following Him. This can mean that we follow Him into unknown and stormy places. It can mean we follow Him into great spiritual battles. It can mean we are scorned by others because of our association with Him. Yet, who else would we want to follow? On Sunday, we follow Jesus into spiritual adventure.

  • King and Kingdom (Matthew 8:1-17) - “Jesus Heals” February 12, 2017

    14/02/2017 Duración: 39min

    When Jesus began his ministry, He announced that the Kingdom of God is near and available to all who will humble themselves before God and believe that Jesus is God and Savior of the world. Then He immediately began healing people and casting out demons. What is the connection and what does that mean for us today? On Sunday, we resumed our ‘King and Kingdom’ series in The Gospel of Matthew.

  • INTO THE DEEP (Luke 5:1-11) - “…and their nets were breaking” February 5, 2017

    07/02/2017 Duración: 41min

    When Jesus filled the Apostles’ nets with fish, the weight was so heavy that their nets were breaking and their boats were sinking! In desperation, they called to one another for help. They were transformed in an instant from confident fishermen to clumsy novices as they tried to salvage the situation themselves. Jesus performed in a similar miracle at the end of his ministry. This time, the Apostles were much quicker to recognize that Jesus was in it and things went much more smoothly as they reeled in the catch. So what might that mean for us as a church? Last week we spoke of casting out our nets. But what if God fills them? How can we be prepared for that?
