  • Desiring the Beatific Vision
    Desiring the Beatific Vision In this 6/5/16 sermon, Michael Gowens highlights Moses's daring request in Exodus 33:18: "I beseech thee, Show me thy glory." This request captures the deepest yearning of the regenerate heart -- the longing to see the face of God...to know Him immediately and completely. Such a desire for God himself, not for His gifts, is a mark of spiritual maturity.

  • The Triad of Christian Graces
    The Triad of Christian Graces This message by Michael L. Gowens, delivered on 4/17/16, challenges the "performance trap" in popular religion. It is based on 1 Corinthians 13:13: "And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity." Elder Gowens contrasts the spiritual gifts that "cease" (v. 8) with these spiritual graces that "abide" (or remain). This trio of virtues, more than anything else, define authentic Christianity.

    A Resurrection Gospel On Easter Sunday 2016, Pastor Gowens employed three post-resurrection appearances of the risen Christ, as recorded in John 20, to teach the contemporary relevance of the doctrine of the resurrection to believers now.
