  • On Trial for Jesus

    On Trial for Jesus

    29/04/2019 Duração: 49min

    Stephen was one of the first-ever deacons. He was not just someone who helped behind the scenes, though; he had a testimony of being a powerful witness for Christ, preaching and teaching with authority. Through looking at his trial, complete with hired false witnesses, we see the problems they had with him; these are the same problems the world has with us today. /// Scripture: Acts 6:8-7:1 | Speaker: Bro. Danny Nance | Date Recorded: April 28th, 2019 | Running Time: 49:28

  • A Visit from Paul (Easter Dramatic Monologue)

    A Visit from Paul (Easter Dramatic Monologue)

    22/04/2019 Duração: 27min

    The Apostle Paul stopped by to tell us about his life, and how he went from being someone who scoffed at and persecuted followers of the Way, to becoming Jesus’s emissary to the Gentiles. His testimony assures us that the resurrection is real, because a resurrected Christ appeared to him! /// Scripture: Acts, 1 Corinthians | Speaker: Bro. Danny Nance | Date Recorded: April 21st, 2019 | Running Time: 27:55

  • Some Bad Advice, Some Good Advice

    Some Bad Advice, Some Good Advice

    15/04/2019 Duração: 39min

    When Peter and the apostles appeared before the Sanhedrin (the council of Jewish leaders), they professed that they would continue to preach Jesus. While there was some seemingly wise counsel from one of their more learned members, a closer analysis shows that it was bad advice. The world’s wisdom often looks at God’s wisdom as foolishness, but Peter and the apostles stayed true to God’s wisdom; we should as well. /// Scripture: Acts 5:29-42 | Speaker: Bro. Danny Nance | Date Recorded: April 14th, 2019 | Running Time: 39:54

  • Whom Will We Obey?

    Whom Will We Obey?

    08/04/2019 Duração: 45min

    The apostles were arrested; but, before the Sanhedrin could covene a trial, God released them from prison and told them to go back where they had been and resume preaching. When the church authorities found them, they threatened them, and told them to stop preaching. Peter, speaking for the group, powerfully expressed that they were living in ultimate allegiance to God, not man. /// Scripture: Acts 5:17-29 | Speaker: Bro. Danny Nance | Date Recorded: April 7th, 2019 | Running Time: 45:12

  • The Problem of Pretense

    The Problem of Pretense

    01/04/2019 Duração: 49min

    Today’s passage is one of the more difficult passages in the book of Acts. However, it is not a story of a God overreacting to a little sin; rather, it expresses the seriousness with which God views hypocrisy. Hypocrisy is the tool of the enemy, challenges our integrity, and can attack our very commitment to God. /// Scripture: Acts 5:1-11 | Speaker: Bro. Danny Nance | Date Recorded: March 31st, 2019 | Running Time: 49:53

  • Praying for Boldness

    Praying for Boldness

    25/03/2019 Duração: 53min

    After Peter and John got in trouble with the authorities, they were charged to stop preaching about Jesus. When they met back up with the other believers, though, they did not gather everyone up to tell them about their new clandestine gospel program; rather, they prayed that they would be even more bold in sharing the good news of Jesus Christ! They remembered what God had already done, and relied on His power to continue their ministry; 2,000 years later, we should do nothing less ourselves. /// Scripture: Acts 4:23-31 | Speaker: Bro. Danny Nance | Date Recorded: March 24th, 2019 | Running Time: 53:51

  • No Good Deed Goes Unpunished

    No Good Deed Goes Unpunished

    18/03/2019 Duração: 45min

    Peter and John continued preaching about Jesus, and people were listening - including the church leaders, who had Peter and John arrested. Their experience shows us that, when we are serving God, we will encounter opposition. However, that should not dissuade us, because we will also see God transform lives through His grace. /// Scripture: Acts 4:1-6 | Speaker: Bro. Danny Nance | Date Recorded: March 17th, 2019 | Running Time: 45:43

  • Who Gets the Credit?

    Who Gets the Credit?

    11/03/2019 Duração: 44min

    Fresh off Peter and John’s healing of the man who had been lame since birth, they had the people’s attention. Peter preached to them not of their own power, but of God and His plan to provide healing for all of mankind. This provision from God was a plan laid out across the ages, involving the Prophet of the Lord Who would make the supreme sacrifice. /// Scripture: Acts 3:11-26 | Speaker: Bro. Danny Nance | Date Recorded: March 10th, 2019 | Running Time: 44:12

  • Really Seeing

    Really Seeing

    04/03/2019 Duração: 49min

    Some time after Pentecost, Peter and John were going into the temple for mid-afternoon prayer. They had probably walked past the same beggar many times, but on this day, they truly saw him. They had no money, but they knew that what he really needed was to be introduced to Jesus. In the same way, we should strive to truly see those around us, and share Jesus with them. /// Scripture: Acts 3:1-10 | Speaker: Bro. Danny Nance | Date Recorded: March 3rd, 2019 | Running Time: 49:06

  • Amazing Grace at Work

    Amazing Grace at Work

    25/02/2019 Duração: 47min

    After Peter’s powerful sermon, the Spirit of God changed the hearts of those came to Him. However, their change was not just an inward change; this affected their outward lives as well. They saw awesome power displayed, they showed compassion for their fellow man, they worshiped the Lord, and they experienced joyful growth. /// Scripture: Acts 2:43-47 | Speaker: Bro. Danny Nance | Date Recorded: February 24th, 2019 | Running Time: 47:58

  • The Rock Stands Firm

    The Rock Stands Firm

    18/02/2019 Duração: 49min

    Peter came a long way from the disciple who denied Jesus 3 times before He was crucified. On Pentecost, Peter stood up firm in his belief in the One Who had restored him. God’s work through Peter serve as an example to us on how God empowers His people as they stand boldly and proclaim His Word; He gives us the courage to stand, an understanding of His purposes, words that can penetrate hearts, and the only source of spiritual regeneration and growth. /// Scripture: Acts 2:14-42 | Speaker: Bro. Danny Nance | Date Recorded: February 17th, 2019 | Running Time: 49:18

  • Happy Birthday!

    Happy Birthday!

    11/02/2019 Duração: 57min

    The Feast of Weeks, also known as Pentecost, was a celebratory feast which saw Jews assemble in Jerusalem from all over the known world. This was when the Holy Spirit arrived on the 120 followers who had been told to wait, and His arrival signaled a move of God upon His people, with its effects felt throughout the world. /// Scripture: Acts 2:1-13 | Speaker: Bro. Danny Nance | Date Recorded: February 10th, 2019 | Running Time: 57:34

  • Dedicated


    04/02/2019 Duração: 51min

    After Jesus had returned to heaven, His disciples were dedicated to the mission they had been given. There were two ways we can see their dedication - their unity of heart, and their perseverance in prayer. Today, these two aspects are hallmarks of Christians who continue to be dedicated to making our Lord’s name great. /// Scripture: Acts 1:12-14 | Speaker: Bro. Danny Nance | Date Recorded: February 3rd, 2019 | Running Time: 51:42

  • Fixated


    28/01/2019 Duração: 47min

    Many people today are fixated on various things - cell phones, social media, politics, and the like. As Christians, though, our efforts should be fixed on God’s purpose for our lives; as we do this, we must be sure we are not focusing on the wrong thing (even though it may be a good thing), or focusing on simply keeping things the same. God has called us to be His witnesses here, today. /// Scripture: Acts 1:6-11 | Speaker: Bro. Danny Nance | Date Recorded: January 27th, 2019 | Running Time: 47:40

  • Come Home, Come Home, Its Suppertime!

    Come Home, Come Home, It's Suppertime!

    14/01/2019 Duração: 37min

    The Lord’s Supper is a memorial to Christ’s sacrifice. It not only reminds us of what He has done, it also shows us how far we have drifted, and helps us understand that He can change us into what we were created to be. (There were two periods of silence during the service that have been removed from this recording, one for technical issues and one for a time of reflection.) /// Scripture: 1 Corinthians 11:23-32 | Speaker: Bro. Danny Nance | Date Recorded: January 13th, 2019 | Running Time: 37:51

  • New Beginnings

    New Beginnings

    07/01/2019 Duração: 54min

    As Jesus spoke with His disciples in the upper room, He prophesied His coming death. Beyond that, though, He said that the key to serving God was following His example. By following Him, our faith cannot be hidden, and will bear much fruit. (There were some technical issues early in this recording; they resolve around 10 minutes in.) /// Scripture: John 12:20-26 | Speaker: Bro. Bill Collum, Jr. | Date Recorded: January 6th, 2019 | Running Time: 54:17

  • The Grace of God Has Appeared

    The Grace of God Has Appeared

    31/12/2018 Duração: 42min

    Jesus came to save. As Paul wrote to Titus, the man he left to minister to the church in Crete, he expressed the immediate, ongoing, and future salvation brought by our Savior. /// Scripture: Titus 2:11-14 | Speaker: Bro. Danny Nance | Date Recorded: December 30th, 2018 | Running Time: 42:17

  • O Little Town of Bethlehem

    O Little Town of Bethlehem

    24/12/2018 Duração: 47min

    Bethlehem was a small town, especially when compared to Jerusalem, considered the capital of Israel. Yet, Micah prophesied that out of this small town, a King would come. The Messiah would come from Bethlehem, challenging the world’s view of greatness, privilege, leadership, and blessing. /// Scripture: Micah 5:2-5a | Speaker: Bro. Danny Nance | Date Recorded: December 23rd, 2018 | Running Time: 47:37

  • The Lord Is in Your Midst

    The Lord Is in Your Midst

    17/12/2018 Duração: 43min

    The kingdom of Judah had earned God’s judgment, and Zephaniah had prophesied its coming. His last prophecy, though, was one of great joy, promising that there was a Coming One Who would forgive them, restore them, bring them victory, and bring them home. The prophecy wasn’t just for Judah; it will be fulfilled when Christ returns to reign over His creation. /// Scripture: Zephaniah 3:14-20 | Speaker: Bro. Danny Nance | Date Recorded: December 16th, 2018 | Running Time: 43:29

  • A Messenger with a Promise

    A Messenger with a Promise

    10/12/2018 Duração: 40min

    The prophecy we read today was not quite the response that the original recipients thought they would receive; they questioned God’s justice (and, thus, His character). God’s response was that messengers were coming - yet, the messengers were not bringing a message that God’s people could do no wrong. Rather, the message is that God’s people will be refined and purified. While the world stands at the brink of judgment, God’s people will not be ultimately destroyed; the often-painful refining will lead to true peace. (Due to a technical issue, this recording joins the message a few minutes in.) /// Scripture: Malachi 3:1-6 | Speaker: Bro. Danny Nance | Date Recorded: December 9th, 2018 | Running Time: 40:08
