God's Household, The Church (1 Timothy 3:14-16)

July 05, 2015

Pastor Rich Chapman   Length: 37:15 (34.3 MB)

God has established three institutions: Marriage, Government, and the Church. The church is God's household and the word means "the called-out." It is a family, not a building and Jesus is at its center.

Deacon Who? (1 Timothy 3:8-13, Acts 6)

June 28, 2015

Pastor Rich Chapman   Length: 37:06 (34.1 MB)

All believers are called to serve and have been given gifts we can use to do so. The word deacon means one who serves, but a title is not necessary. Just be about the Father's business. Deacon who? Deacon you!

God Our Father (2 Thessalonians 2:16, Luke 15:11-31)

June 21, 2015

Pastor Rich Chapman   Length: 41:30 (38.1 MB)

Our Heavenly Father loves us unconditionally. He is filled with compassion, not condemnation. When one of His sheep returns to Him, He is truly a happy Father. Fathers everywhere can learn from His example.

Overseer, Elder, Shepherd Qualifications (1 Timothy 3:2-7)

June 14, 2015

Pastor Rich Chapman   Length: 39:26 (36.3 MB)

Personal character, the witness of the home, teaching aptitude, and a measure of experience are four of God's main standards for leadership in the church. Problems that prevent a leader from fulfilling his position include lack of character.

Overseer, Elder, Shepherd (1 Timothy 3:1)

June 07, 2015

Pastor Rich Chapman   Length: 39:15 (36.1 MB)

The Bible uses the words overseer, elder, and shepherd interchangeably. Those who are called to this position must serve willingly, not for power or obligation. They are to teach, preach, direct the church and shepherd the flock; truly a high calling!

Men and Women in the Church (1 Timothy 2:8-15)

May 31, 2015

Pastor Rich Chapman   Length: 36:35 (33.6 MB)

God has defined different roles for men and women in the church. Men are to step up and take the lead in prayer, teaching, leadership and worship. Women are to be active with their good deeds. Christianity respects both roles equally.

Only One Way (1 Timothy 2:5-7)

May 24, 2015

Pastor Rich Chapman   Length: 36:26 (33.5 MB)

There is only one way to heaven and to have a relationship with God and that is Jesus who gave himself as a ransom for our sins. This truth is repeated many times, including in Matthew 7, John 10, John 14, and Acts 4.

Does God Hear Us? (1 Timothy 2:1-4)

May 17, 2015

Pastor Rich Chapman   Length: 31:23 (28.9 MB)

Although things seem bad in the world today, think how much worse it could be if God's people did not pray. We are told to pray for our leaders, even when they make ungodly decisions. Prayer may not change them, but it changes us and pleases God.

Fight the Good Fight, Part II (1 Timothy 1:18-20)

May 10, 2015

Pastor Rich Chapman   Length: 41:26 (38.1 MB)

Jesus is alive and He continues to speak to us through Holy Scripture, His Holy Spirit, creation, circumstances, and through others. Hold on to His word so that you may fight the good fight. If anyone hears His voice He will come in and sup with them.

Fight the Good Fight! (1 Timothy 1:18-20)

May 03, 2015

Pastor Rich Chapman   Length: 38:54 (35.8 MB)

Knowing that God has called us for a purpose will help us get through the discouraging times. We need to recognize that we are in a battle with the world, the flesh and the devil. Jesus works through our conscience to keep us from danger.
