Who is Jesus? I am the Light of the World

Feb 11, 2024   Elisha Freeman — In our current sermon series, we are seeking to find the answer to the question ‘Who is Jesus?’ And we are turning to the seven ‘I am’ statements to allow Jesus to speak for himself.

Meditations on Raleigh

Oct 16, 2022 — Elisha Freeman  Our city was shaken with the tragedy that took place on Thursday. Familiar feelings of breaking hearts, anxiousness, fear, disappointment, and anger were produced. As followers of Christ, how do we respond? What do we say? Where is God? These and so many other questions flood our mind. This morning let’s meditate on God’s Word and on our city.

More Than Conquerors over Suffering

Jul 17, 2022 — Elisha Freeman  Tim Keller is quoted as saying ‘[Suffering] enables us to learn a very valuable lesson and that is: You don’t realize that Jesus is all you need until you know that Jesus is all you have.’ Suffering is one of the most complex and uncomfortable realities in this life. It affects everyone no matter how hard we plan and work to prevent it. When it arrives at our door step, how is the Christian to respond? We seek to answer this question and more this morning.

Risen Savior – Easter 2021

Apr 04, 2921 — Elisha Freeman — Edgar Allan Poe’s poem “The Raven” ends with the author acknowledging the futility of the loss and the realization of hopelessness. Many of us know this feeling and reality very well as we battle hopelessness as a constant companion. The resurrection of Jesus reminds us that while the believer battles hopelessness there is not such thing as having no hope. Easter is about the revival of hope.

Revelations 4-5

Dec 13, 2020 – Elisha Freeman — Revelation 6-19 are chapters that will communicate to the church in the first century that tough times are coming. However, before all of that happens, Jesus opens a door and invites His church to look up and see God in heaven. This morning we will be reminded of the beauty, value, worth, and hope of heaven.
