  Date: Sunday, September 03, 2017       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 46 mins 48 secs    
Passage: Acts 13:1-12    
  Description: Out on the far end of the island of Cyprus was a Roman proconsul with an intelligent and open mind and whose status and accomplishments could not touch the spiritual void in his life. He is the next great conversion story in the Book of Acts and how he got converted and what happened along the way is part of one the great turning points in Christian history.
  Date: Sunday, August 27, 2017       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 44 mins 55 secs    
Passage: Acts 10:1-11:18    
  Description: The conversion of a Roman soldier is surprising in a number of ways. First, he is a god-fearing, devout, and good man, just the kind many people feel should not need conversion. Second, he is a soldier whose allegiance belonged to Rome and Caesar, not to someone named Jesus who claimed to be a king. Third, he was a Gentile, someone considered to be outside the range of God's saving grace, at least by some. How he was converted, and what God did to bring about his conversion is a surprising story in itself.
  Date: Sunday, August 20, 2017       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 49 mins 35 secs    
Passage: Acts 8:25-40    
  Description: While Philip was still involved in the great conversion story of the Samaritans, God called him on what must have seemed like a strange mission. Philip never questioned God, but obeyed, and soon was instrumental in bringing a seeker from Ethiopia to conversion. God's seemingly strange command is just one of several divinely orchestrated events that let to this spiritually hungry man's conversion.
  Date: Sunday, August 13, 2017       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 42 mins 13 secs    
Passage: Acts 8:1-24    
  Description: So unexpected was the conversion of the Samaritans that the apostles sent Peter and John to Samaria to check out the report. We'll discover how this great conversion story happened, an unexpected development along the way, and the troubling possibility that accompanied it.
  Date: Sunday, August 06, 2017       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 35 mins 49 secs    
Passage: Acts 1:1-2:47    
  Description: In this series we will learn that people become Christians by conversion, not by virtue of birth, or gradual process, but in a moment orchestrated by the Holy Spirit where they pass from spiritual death to spiritual life. This message focuses on one of the greatest conversion stories in the New Testament, the conversion of 3,000 Jewish people in one day. We'll see what led up to this amazing experience, how it occurred, and the evidence here for the necessity of conversion.
  Date: Sunday, June 25, 2017       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 32 mins 1 sec    
  Description: Paul concludes his letter to the Corinthians reminding them that he hopes not to have to use his apostolic authority to correct the remaining problems in the church when he comes. He then asks the Corinthians to test themselves and examine themselves to see if they really are true believers. We'll see why he felt he had to challenge them on this, and learn how a person can know if he or she is a true born-again believer in Christ today.
  Date: Sunday, June 11, 2017       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 36 mins 35 secs    
  Description: Paul turns the tables on the false teachers in Corinth by boasting in weakness rather than strength. In doing so he shows that God is strong in us only when we are weak, so that being weak is better than being strong since it lets God's power be seen in us and our ministry. We can therefore be glad for weakness and troubles since when we are weak in ourselves, then we are truly strong.
  Date: Sunday, May 28, 2017       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 36 mins 40 secs    
  Description: Paul engages in some tit-for-tat with the false teachers in Corinth, using the foolish ways they used to promote themselves. By doing so he demonstrated that he deserved the same respect and honor these men had received from the Corinthians if their earthly criteria were the true measure of value in ministry. We can be grateful that Paul engaged in this little bit of foolishness, for in doing so he reveals the high cost he paid to exercise genuine ministry. There are significant lessons for all Christians today, but especially for leaders, in Paul's example.
  Date: Sunday, May 21, 2017       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 39 mins 6 secs    
  Description: The Corinthians in their great tolerance allowed false teachers to bring their teaching into the church. Paul uses his humble, unselfish ministry as a contrast to these self-seeking teachers, and identifies them for who they really are. Tolerance is a Christian virtue unless we allow Satan to use it to distort truth and gloss over sin that we stand against.
  Date: Sunday, May 14, 2017       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 30 mins 4 secs    
  Description: Paul returns to the theme he opened 2 Corinthians with - getting ministry right. In chapter 10 he responds to criticisms from some in the church who he knew were looking at ministry and ministers in the wrong way. He appeals to the Corinthians not to misjudge him and leave him with an option he doesn't want to use - that of using his divinely given power in a way that would tear down rather than build up. He exposes four problems in the way the Corinthians evaluated ministers and ministry, and points out the right way to do this. So that we don't evaluate ministers and ministry incorrectly, Paul's words are also for each of us.
