Who Came Up With This Idea?

Pastor Vince teaches on the subject of marriage by focusing on these four points: the place, the purpose, the permanence, and the power of marriage. “It is important to see Who came up with this idea of marriage: God did! It is also important to remember it is for the purpose of mutual loving care that can not only impact your spouse, but your children, your church and the world around you.”

He Will, With Your Life

Pastor Vince continues his study in 1 Corinthians 6:9-20 by reminding us of what the book of Revelations teaches us: that Jesus is in the midst of His people. Keeping that in mind makes all the difference as we dive into this passage in 1 Corinthians. Pastor Vince shares four insights: what sin does – what Jesus does – what sin seeks to still do – what Jesus keeps doing.

Go to His Corner Before the Courtroom

Pastor Vince begins his study of 1 Corinthians chapter 6 by reading John 13:35: “By this all people will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” It is Jesus’ words in this verse that must guide us when we encounter conflict with other believers. Listen in to receive encouraging words on how to glorify God through conflict.

One Sentence That Changed Ours

In 1 Corinthians 5, there is a sentence that seems random and out of place. Does it really belong there? Pastor Vince shares that not only does it belong, but it is the central reason why the Corinthians were able to have victory over sin. This one sentence that seems out of context is actually the heart of the gospel. Listen in to find out what the sentence is and how it can change you.

Urgent Warning of Corinthian Virus

While the Corona virus is currently in the headlines and it is something we need to be praying for, Paul is alerting us to the Corinthian virus that has been affecting us for 2000 years. In chapter 5, Paul speaks of a virus that not only threatens to poison a person, but also the church.

Whether the Pope or pew-sitter, parent or Paul

Have you driven by a church sign that has gotten your attention? Pastor Vince shares one of his favorites: “The best vitamin for a Christian is B1.” Signs, slogans and social media posts desire to have an impact on us. They want to get our attention, to stir a thought, and to provoke interest. Pastor Vince asks us if we truly want our lives to impact others for the glory of God. In 1 Corinthians 4, Paul shares with us…

Is Re-Gifting Biblical?

How many of us have re-gifted a gift we received? While some may deny it, many of us have. Pastor Vince uses the subject of re-gifting in this week’s message from 1 Corinthians: “One thing that Paul will make clear in this passage is that none of us really have the ability to give a gift to anyone – we only have the ability to re-gift. We are all re-gifters…and we should be.” Why is that so? Listen in to…

Jesus, I’m an Open Book

Pastor Vince continues his teaching in 1 Corinthians and focuses on how each of our lives is an open book to God. Yet, we do not need to be fearful of that fact. Instead, we should be confident. How can we be confident in that? Listen in to find out.

We Gather Together

Pastor Vince continues his teaching in 1 Corinthians and asks what is it that causes us to gather together? It is our common identity as God’s children, our common commitment to the Word of God, and our common purpose which is God’s glory. 1 Corinthians 3:8-23

Stop Playing Fantasy Church

This week, Pastor Vince continues his teaching in 1 Corinthians and encourages us to stop playing “fantasy church” and to get on the move with God. “What impact am I having on the world around me and in my church?” He uses the following three points: Get your eyes off of the world’s approval – Get your eyes on the Lord – Get your eyes on yourself. Do the last two points seem to contradict each other? Listen in to…

Harry’s Heartache was Paul’s Pain

In 1 Corinthians 3, Paul expresses his heartbreak in the lack of growth in the Christians’ lives as a whole in Corinth. He is not seeing a difference in how they live before faith in Christ and after faith in Christ. Pastor Vince shares how we can learn from the Corinthians and encourages us in moving towards active spiritual growth in Jesus. Is your faith making a change in you? How do you measure spiritual growth? It is not by…

The Voice: Corinth Edition

Pastor Vince uses the example of the current hit TV show “The Voice” to introduce this week’s sermon on 1 Corinthians. In today’s passage, Paul expounds on the importance of the power of the Holy Spirit not only in our speech (voice) but in every aspect of our lives.

The Foolishness of God?

In this week’s message from 1 Corinthians, Pastor Vince shares that the wisdom of man is no match for the wisdom of God. “We co-exist in a culture that is confused and often combating the content of the Christian message. Yet, Paul encourages us to be confident in God and confident in His gospel.”

Put His Sandals On

Pastor Vince uses an analogy of walking the Ocean City boardwalk without sandals to walking through life without our spiritual sandals on. “Paul has a great concern for his readers in that he can see their ‘feet’ are getting splintered – there are several splinters already in them – and the reason is that you haven’t put on the sandals of Jesus. You are not letting Him walk in your lives.” 1 Corinthians 1:1-17

Still the One

Pastor Vince begins his study of 1 Corinthians by asking a question: How can something that was written to a specific group of people 2000 years ago have anything to do with us or have any meaning to us? Is it really something that is worth our devotion? He answers that question by taking us back to the last few verses of Matthew 28. “What we are sharing is not the old truths – but they are the truths that…
