Sermons

Imagine a world without the internet … without computers … without television … without radio … and without the printing press.

These modern conveniences, which we take for granted, were absent from the culture in which the New Testament was written. No wonder the New Testament places a heavy emphasis upon a gathered community of believers (Acts 14:27; 1 Corinthians 5:4; etc.) for the express purposes of reading the scriptures publicly (1 Timothy 4:13) and instructing the members (1 Timothy 4:11; 6:2; etc.) and using one’s spiritual gifts to minister to others within the local church (1 Corinthians 12:12-26; Ephesians 4:12; 1 Peter 4:10).

While there might be many advantages to modern technology, and many could claim that the church has benefitted from this technology, a good case could be made that the church has not benefitted as much as many like to think.

Invariably, easy access to popular but distant ministries has fueled a lack of commitment in Christians in being vitally connected to a local church to worship, learn, and minister together. (If Christians can get their “church” online, why should they feel compelled to personally attend anywhere? If Christians find a wonderful teacher online, they will not be compelled to belong to a church which they view as inferior.)

Based upon the teachings of the New Testament we believe every Christian must be a member of a church in his/her area so he/she can be pastored by the local church’s pastor (Acts 20:28; Ephesians 4:11-12; Hebrews 13:7, 17) and so that he/she can give financially to and minister wholeheartedly in his/her respective church. Therefore, sincere Bible-believing Christians will not allow themselves to be distracted from God’s prescription for believers to gather together in a local church setting.

And because of our strong belief in God’s plan for a gathered community of believers, we don’t offer weekly sermons online.

However, you may be in the position of having to look for a local church in which to be a vital member. And before you make the decision to “check out” New Life Baptist Church you would probably prefer to listen to a few representative sermons. We hope the series below from the book of Ephesians will not only be a blessing to you but that it will encourage you to come and visit New Life Baptist Church personally.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
