Dumb Things Christians Say

Join us for our new sermon series, Dumb Things Christians Say, starting Saturday, September 19th! People have a lot to say, these days. On social media and among friends and family, we share opinions and advice freely. But sometimes Christians toss around statements that aren’t exactly helpful or even biblically true. In this six-week series we’ll look at some of those spiritual urban legends and contrast them with what God’s Word actually says. Join us online for our live stream worship events on our Live…

This Is Jesus ~ A New Sermon Series @ Eagle Rock Baptist Church

If someone at work asked you – Who is Jesus? – how would you respond? Yes – Jesus is the most fascinating, influential and important person who has ever lived. He has turned the world upside down – that is true. But, who is he really? Most people (even many Christians) have a lot more questions than answers about who Jesus is. That’s why we’re kicking off our new teaching series – THIS IS JESUS…to cut through the half-truths and false media…

Keep The Change!

What would you change about your life? Let’s face it. We all have things about ourselves we want to change, whether they are big or small. Some people dread change, while others seek it out like the next big thing. When it comes to changing our lives, we think it only takes a certain amount of determination, drive and discipline. But there’s much more to change. In this series we’ll see that real change comes only from God. And when we learn…

What Would Jesus Undo

The phrase “What would Jesus do?”, often abbreviated WWJD, became so popular in the 1990s that when a bracelet was introduced with those four letters, more than 50 million were sold. Those four letters (WWJD) were a reminder to followers of Jesus, that whenever they were facing a moral decision, instead of just asking “What do I think I should do in this situation?” A better practice was to pause and ask a different question. Specifically, “What Would Jesus Do? This weekend…

Why Bother Praying?

“Why pray? What is the point of prayer when God knows the future and is already in control of everything? If we cannot change God’s mind, why should we pray?” For the Christian, praying is supposed to be like breathing, easier to do than to not do. We pray for many reasons. For one thing, we pray because God commands us to pray. We also pray to follow the example of our Lord. If Jesus thought it was worthwhile to pray, we…

Patience Anyone?

Do you like to wait? I didn’t think so. Nobody actually likes to wait. Yet everyday we’re forced to wait – sometimes for things we need and sometimes for things we just want. Statistics show that the average person spends close to an hour everyday waiting for something – elevators, traffic lights, your turn at the intersection, your turn to pay at the grocery store, a cup of coffee, a table or your food at a restaurant, the computer to load, and…

To Plan or Not to Plan?

Planning is a wonderful thing. There are a lot of things in life that don’t happen without planning. Stadiums aren’t built, sewer systems aren’t installed, power grids aren’t maintained, children aren’t educated, and sometimes prayer doesn’t happen without a plan. Yet if you study the life of Jesus you’ll find that some of the most powerful ministry encounters recorded, seemed to take place during unexpected, informal, unprogrammed moments. Read through the gospel of John and you’ll discover that most of what John…

Curing My “I” Problem

What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don’t they come from your desires…? James 4:1 “I want what I want when I want it.” According to the psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud, this is a central driving force within every single human being. We want what we want when we want it, and we get upset when we can’t have what we want—or we envy others who have what we want. As followers of Jesus Christ, we have to learn to ask God what he…
