Sermons on Christmas
We have a guest visitor to Immanuel Baptist Church – Isaac the Shepherd.
Pastor Vince teaches from Luke 2.
Pastor Vince teaches from Luke 1 and shares of Mary and Elizabeth and their pregnancy experiences and how we can learn from their responses. “Why are there uneven piles under the trees of our lives which can cause us to say, ‘God is not fair’…yet we need to choose instead to look at the promises, not the piles. Look at what is already under the tree for you.”
Pastor Vince teaches a Christmas message from Matthew 1:20-21.
How do you handle God’s interruptions in your life? We can get so absorbed in our own plans and how we expect our lives to play out that we can lose the bigger picture. “It comes down to this: Am I at peace with the fact that God has the right to interrupt my life however He decides?” Pastor Vince squeezes a little more out of the Christmas story in this morning’s sermon. Don’t pass over this powerful message. He…
Pastor Vince gives a powerful message of how we can apply the Christmas message to the current times we are living in. He calls us to be intentional with others just as Christ was intentional on our behalf. “We are living in a time of disconnect and social distancing and I want to remind us that the joy of Christmas is made complete when we experience it together relationally…we need to be intentional with our relational impact…the foundational purpose of…

Pastor Vince reminds us that God guides our lives daily not by a star but by a defining moment. What is that specific defining moment? Take a listen to find out. Luke 2
Pastor Vince begins his Christmas series in the book of Habakkuk 3:17-19. Take a minute to read those three verses as it’s an interesting place to start. How does he tie them in to the Christmas story? Listen in to this very encouraging message. “God uses the context of pain as the wrapping paper for the gifts of the comfort of His promises and the comfort of His presence.” Luke 1:5-23
The ‘power of the people’ can have an impact on whether something rises or falls. Whether it be the success of a restaurant or Santa’s sleigh in the Elf movie. Yet, the power of the people has no impact on whether the true impact of the Christmas story will rise or fall. It doesn’t matter whether 1 person or 7 billion people believe in the Christmas story – the truth and impact of it remains the same. Your response to…
