Last Sunday at Calvary Church West Hills, I began a five-part series on what it means to be a healthy, growing, gospel-centered church. The church should be known for its love for Christ, and together we look at ways this will manifest itself in how we do ministry. This message was also posted on our official Calvary Church page on Sermon Audio. Video is available on our YouTube page.

One of the Bible's most common descriptions for spiritual leadership is a shepherd. In John 10, Jesus presents himself as both the Good Shepherd and the Door of the Sheep. All who hear his voice are invited to follow after him.

Wednesday Jan 03, 2024

Natural disasters like fires, floods, and earthquakes occur somewhere on the earth every day. The largest disaster in history is described for us in Genesis 6-8.

Why early humans lived so long before the flood -- some almost a thousand years!
God's holiness and the spiritual darkness of the world in Noah's day

Crouching at the Door (Genesis 4)

Wednesday Dec 27, 2023

Wednesday Dec 27, 2023

Within one generation, Adam & Eve's sin led to a downward spiral of human envy, deceit, hatred, and the murder of one of their sons. Last Sunday, our Bible Study looked at Genesis 4 together. It was definitely an unusual Christmas Eve passage, but such evil and injustice actually remind us why Christ came into our world. In this passage, we discussed...
Christmas carols with a darker tone
Why did the LORD accept Abel's sacrifice and not Cain's?
How the New Testament authors point to Cain as a warning
What to do when you sense sin "crouching at the door"
How God showed mercy in spite of Cain's cold-blooded act

Why holiday traditions are important, and ideas on how to create your own
