Jesus Above All

Jesus Above All

Misael Gonzalez • Colossians 1:15-17   Worshiping God becomes much more profound when we know the magnitude of who Jesus is as the Author, Creator, and Sustainer of the universe; He is the glue holding our us together.

The Missionary Mindset

The Missionary Mindset

Chris Wall • Colossians 1:1-8  The core of Christianity is the gospel. The heart of every gospel centered Christian is urgency and clarity with the gospel message. This year, the leadership of First Baptist is asking you to join us to recommit to sharing the gospel where we live.  Our 2021Gospeladventure is to build a missionary mindset in our lives. Every believer is called to be on mission (Matthew 28:16-20)  The people of First Baptist have an expanding mission in Spanish and English. We have an expanding mission from the inner city of Tulsa to the expanding suburbs and surrounding towns. The question before us is whether or not we will accept it. God wants to involve us in His mission. And as our loving Heavenly Father, He has given us everything we need to accomplish it.  Epaphras sets an example for us as he was given strength in every situation, power by the Holy Spirit, while being faithfully surrounded with passionate, committed, and capable Believers who stood ready to fulfill this mission with him. ...

Looking Beyond 2020

Looking Beyond 2020

Chris Wall • 1 Thessalonians 5:1-11   Ending 2020 with a call to remain alert seems to be an appropriate ending to an unforgettable year. This passage in I Thessalonians 5 has been written as an encouragement to the church to live in the light. In all honesty, light has been a constant theme throughout the entire Christmas season. This passage first of all points to the reality of the second coming of Christ and the inevitable end of days of grace on the earth. The world is groaning like the pains of childbirth speaking to the inevitable Day of the Lord inescapable for everyone. With this reality in view, God’s people have a clear responsibility to wake up, think, and be alert all the way to the moment of His return.  ...

Appearing to Us

Appearing to Us

Chris Wall • 1 John 1:1-4 How many Christmas stories have you heard? There is Scrooge, It’s a Wonderful Life, A Christmas Story, Elf, Diehard, and don’t even try to walk through the Hallmark Channel lineup. Christmas time is chalked full of incredibly creative made-up stories. However, we recognize that real life is better than fiction. So, when it comes to the real life version of Christmas, the details are more remarkable than any of the made up tales. However, when it comes to the uniqueness of the Christmas story, it is not fiction. Jesus actually entered human history in real time occupying real space. The Christmas message is not just a bunch of nice stories or an interesting legend; it is actually true. Because it is true, fellowship with God is possible.  ...

Nunc Dimitis

Nunc Dimitis

Chris Wall • Luke 2:22-35   Christmas is a joyful time of the year. But before the joy of Christmas can truly be realized, one has to confront the warning of Christmas. Christmas brings hope, joy and salvation causing people to know lasting peace and strength. The Christmas message leads to stability in this world resulting in a literally rising to heaven on the last day. But this same Christmas message causes others to a literal fall in this life ultimately leading to their spiritual death due to rejection of the Savior. The real truth question that this sermon will allow us to confront is whether or not Jesus will be YOUR rise or YOUR fall. I pray this is a day when someone comes to know Christ as their Savior. At the same time this will be an evangelistic message, it also provides an opportunity to reveal the dangerous call God’s people have received. The Christmas message is not safe. It is not comfortable. The call before us results in a gospel adventure causing opposition at every turn. The Christmas message is effective but remains an offense to the world. We have to lead our people not to be offensive, but, prepare for a world to oppose Christ every step of the way.  ...
