  Date: Sunday, October 06, 2019       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 42 mins 46 secs    
Passage: Ephesians 5:18-6:9    
  Description: Being filled with the Holy Spirit has a deep impact on a believer's life, but the impact is not to end there. As we'll discover, immediately after commanding us to be filled with the Holy Spirit, Paul describes four ways in which this filling will be demonstrated. Each of these involves a different significant relationship in our life. All our closest and most important relationships are in the path of the Holy Spirit's moving in our life. Rivers of living water (John 7:37-39) do flow out of those who are filled with the Spirit.

Passage: Ephesians 5:18    
  Description: We are never commanded to be indwelt by the Holy Spirit or baptized by the Holy Spirit, but there is something we are commanded to do: to be filled with the Holy Spirit. In Acts we saw believers filled with the Holy Spirit or full of the Holy Spirit. What does this mean? How is a person filled with the Holy Spirit? What can we expect if we are filled with the Spirit? We'll discover all of that in this message.
  Date: Sunday, September 22, 2019       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 39 mins 11 secs    
Passage: Acts 1:5 & 1 Corinthians 12:13    
  Description: The baptism of the Holy Spirit has been the focus of some unfortunate misunderstanding that has caused many Christians undue stress. Today we'll discover exactly what the baptism of the Holy Spirit is, when it occurs, and what we are to experience as a result of it.
  Date: Tuesday, September 17, 2019       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 55 mins 17 secs    
Passage: John 14:16-17    
  Description: We've learned that the Holy Spirit is a person and that he is divine, a member of the Holy Trinity. In this message we turn from focusing on who the Holy Spirit is in his essential being to who he is to us. We'll learn he is the promised Spirit who has come to dwell in every born-again believer in Jesus. We'll want to discover some of what that means to us, but before that we'll answer a few questions: who does he dwell in, when does he come in to dwell, and how do we know he is dwelling in us?
  Date: Sunday, September 08, 2019       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 31 mins 15 secs    
Passage: John 14:16-17    
  Description: Our study of the Book of Acts showed us the critical role the Holy Spirit had in the lives of the first believers, and in the explosion of the church. If we are going to see God do in our day what he did in the First Century we are going to need a deep experience with the Holy Spirit as the early believers had. We'll be focusing on getting to know the Holy Spirit and his work in and through us over the next few weeks. Today we'll try to answer the question, "Who or what is the Holy Spirit?" We'll learn that the Bible gives a very clear answer to our question. Understanding the nature of the Holy Spirit helps us understand how we can have a deeper relationship with him.
  Date: Monday, September 02, 2019       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 49 mins 19 secs    
Passage: Acts 1:8    
  Description: In this concluding message on the explosion of the early church into the Roman empire, we'll hear some good news about the church and its growth today, then look at two simple facts we've learned that would lead us to believe it is God's plan for the explosion of the church to continue. We'll then summarize nine things we've learned about the dynamic behind church explosion from the book of Acts and apply them to ourselves and to the church today.

Passage: Acts 13:13-52    
  Description: When they leave Cyprus, God leads Barnabas and Paul to skip evangelizing the coast of Asia Minor to head 100 miles inland to Antioch of Pisidia. There he greatly blesses their message in the synagogue so that virtually the whole city turns out to hear the good news a week later. The Jews resist Paul's work and he turns to the Gentiles who eagerly respond to the good news of forgiveness of sins through faith in Jesus Christ. From Antioch the entire region hears to gospel. We can learn some important missionary methods from what Paul and Barnabas did that will help us as we try to reach people today.
  Date: Sunday, August 04, 2019       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 49 mins 29 secs    
Passage: Acts 13:1-12    
  Description: Spontaneous response to opportunities to share the good news has been the primary method God has so far used in the early church to expand the church. In this passage we find God introducing a new method to reach people that spontaneous contacts would not reach. It is what we call missions today, and we'll learn what missions is all about, and the early fruit of the missionary method in this a some subsequent messages. There is application for churches who are passionate about reaching people for Christ in this ancient account.
  Date: Sunday, July 28, 2019       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 41 mins 36 secs    
Passage: Acts 12:1-25    
  Description: After a period of rest from persecution, King Herod, seeking to curry favor with the Jews, initiates a new round of persecution of the church. God responds and before this chapter is finished we'll see that Herod is dead and the one he took prisoner in order to kill is alive and free. We see God's sovereignty on display in this chapter, demonstrating to the church that he, not an earthly king, is ultimately in control.
  Date: Sunday, July 14, 2019       Teacher: Rick Giuntoli     Duration: 47 mins 14 secs    
Passage: Acts 11:1-18    
  Description: God's leading of Peter to share the good news with a Gentile not only surprised Peter, it surprised the church. In fact, the leaders in the Jerusalem church called him to account for why he'd even entered a Gentile's house, much less preached the gospel to them. Peter carefully explained all God had done to convince him not only to visit a Gentile, but then to baptize those who'd believed in Jesus as a result of preaching the good news to them. Prejudices die hard, but God clearly intends that all people can become followers of Christ without first becoming Jews. The good news is for people of all ethnic and cultural groups, and all nationalities.
