When the law is preached, it only has one function - and that is to kill the self. The preaching of the law is to not able to bring about holiness. It does not have that ability. But before Christ can bring new life, the law must first bring death. In this message, we examine the Biblical function of the law to bring us to the foot of the Cross.

We are Not Antinomians

Many have labeled the preachers of grace as "antinomians", meaning, they consider that the law no longer has value. In this sermon, we examine Apostle Paul's response to the accusers who said he no longer saw the value of the law, as we see the proper value that the law has in pointing us to the finished work of Jesus.

Your Maiden Name is Law Keeper

Why does everyone try to live under law? It's because we don't know what the finished work of Christ has done. When we see the new nature that has been given to us through the Cross, we no longer live under the burden of trying to be good enough.

School is Out for the Summer

The Bible tells us in Roman's 6:14 that we are no under law but under grace. What does this look like in a practical sense when it comes to daily following Christ? In this message, we examine the practical implications of grace and how we are liberated to worship Christ.

The key to Christian victory over sin is our understanding of sanctification. Find out in this sermon how the self, the will, and the ego have all been conquered through Christ.

Baptized into His Death

What is the cleansing agent of our spiritual baptism which has made us a new creature? In this sermon we examine the death of Christ, our burial with him, and the call to new life IN him.

Some people think that preaching big grace is a license to sin? Is this true? This question is answered in today's sermon from Romans 6:1 and 2.

The purpose of the law was to magnify Sin. The purpose of sin is to magnify Grace. And Grace therefore magnifies our Justification through Christ!

How is every human, even those who have never heard the law of God, still morally responsible to a Holy and Righteous God on the day of judgement? This question is answered in part 2 of Original Sin.

Our understanding of the work of Christ will depend upon our understanding of the failure of Adam. In the message, Pastor Jesse Watkins explores the historical concept of original sin, and the following implications for the rest of theology.
