The Invitation of Christ: Zaccheus was a wee little man

Posted by galenamissions in Uncategorized

Some children's Bible stories become some familiar that they loose the ability to communicate the power that is contained within them. The story of Zaccheus is one of those stories, yet it contains for us two powerful truths: 1. That "today" salvation can come to those who repent and believe upon the Lord Jesus. 2. That it is Jesus who has come to "seek and save that which was lost".

In this sermon, Pastor Chris Kopp delivers a sermon on Christ's invitation to be saved. Delivered to the Galena Bible Church, Sunday April 27th, 2014.

Resurrection: The change in Peter

Posted by galenamissions in Uncategorized

When Jesus said to Peter, "Simmon, Simmon, Satan had demanded to have you to sift you like wheat, but I have prayed for you that your faith may not fail." It must have been an unnerving experience. 

The resurrection of Jesus signifies the defining point of our faith. In this Easter Sermon Pastor Chris Kopp shares the change that took place in Peter's life as a result of the resurrection of Jesus.

Delivered to the Galena Bible Church, Sunday April 20th, 2014.

They will see your good works

Posted by galenamissions in Uncategorized

When Jesus says things like "This is how they will know that you are my disciples, by your love for one another." and "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your
Father in Heaven." he's saying that our Christian faith will be visible to those who are not Christians. But He also says "Beware of practicing your righteousness before men to be noticed by them, otherwise you have no reward with your Father in Heaven." So how do we know that we are doing "good works" versus "acts of righteousness". Jesus gave us the example of Salt and Light. Salt does stuff, but you don't actually SEE it doing it's stuff. Light illuminates everything, and cannot be hidden unless its covered up.

In this sermon Pastor Chris Kopp teaches on this subject. Delivered to the Galena Bible Church, Sunday April 6th, 2014.
