The Mars Hill Approach

Sharing your faith with others is an essential part of being a Christ-follower. But, there’s a right way and a wrong way to go about doing it. In this message, Pastor Dan will show you an easy-to-remember method that the Apostle Paul used when he shared his faith with the city officials and philosophers in […]

Eyes Wide Open

Like a football quarterback who’s looking down the field at his options, you and I are called to look down the field of our lives and see the people who are open to the Gospel. In Acts 17:16-18, the Apostle Paul travels to the city of Athens where he finds Gospel opportunities all around him. […]

A Noble Reception

What does it mean to be a genuine seeker of Jesus Christ? Does it mean that you go to church and follow a few religious practices? It’s more than that. In this sermon, we’ll see how the Apostle Paul left the city of Thessalonica and went to the city of Berea. The Bereans were hungry […]

Turning the World Upside Down

After leaving Philippi, Paul and Silas traveled to Thessalonica, the capital city of Macedonia. There, they spent three Sabbath days sharing the Gospel in the local synagogue. In this message from Bro. Austin Smith, you’ll see how evangelism takes dialog, explanation, and proclamation.

Not to be Misunderstood

The conflict was so strong that Paul and Barnabas chose to part ways. Pastor Dan points out that though they split […]

Is Grace Enough?

In the early days of the church, some people taught that Gentiles must follow the law of Moses in order to be saved. Bro. Austin Smith shares how the church handled this issue by recognizing that grace comes through faith for both the Jew and the Gentile.

Running Toward Danger

Despite cities that were openly antagonistic to Paul and Barnabas, they chose to build up Christian communities. In the same way, Pastor Dan encourages us to risk our lives for the sake of developing our own Christian ecosystems.

Popular Opinion

When Paul and Barnabas sought to share the gospel in Lystra, the crowd mistakenly treated them as Gods, yet only days later, the same crowd stoned them and left them for dead. Pastor Dan warns us not to be like this capricious crowd. He reminds us not to fall into the trap of following popular […]

Basics of Sharing Your Faith

Paul and Barnabas related to, engaged with, and declared the gospel to the synagogue of Pisidian Antioch. Pastor Dan encourages us to follow their example in our gospel conversations as well.
