Because I Said So! - Part 1 - Part A

Every child has challenged a parent with the question, "Why," only to hear the response, "Because I said so!" This commandment deals with both authority and submission. But there's something much deeper and more profound than mere compliance to a parent's mandate. The commandment implies the supreme value of a godly and healthy family. Today and next week we will consider this fifth commandment and what it means in a culture that is defiant towards it.

Skip Heitzig

The core of Christian life is our relationships, both with God and with other people.

God's Top Ten

For thousands of years mankind has had God's list of Ten Commandments. Though cultures, languages and lifestyles have changed dramatically since Moses received these words on Mount Sinai, they are surprisingly very applicable to our daily lives in the 21st century.

Skip Heitzig explores in depth each of God's Top Ten and wraps up the series with a discussion on the most famous Eleventh Commandment given by Jesus during His time on earth.

The Cure for "I" Disease - Part B

Left unchecked, every person would focus on themselves and live only to please themselves. In the message "The Cure for 'I' Disease," Skip talks about how redemption through Jesus brings with it a different lifestyle.


Relax! And That's an Order - Part 2 - Part B

Has the Sabbath Day been changed? Is Sunday the New Sabbath? Are those who worship on Sunday guilty of compromise and succumbing to paganism? Does it even matter? What about those who whose jobs require them to work on Saturday or Sunday? All these questions and more have become the controversy that surrounds this fourth commandment. The real issue however is much more basic and spiritual: Do you honor God by worshipful rest, expressing thankfulness to Him and becoming refreshed so you can serve Him the rest of the week?

Relax! And That's an Order - Part 2 - Part A

Has the Sabbath Day been changed? Is Sunday the New Sabbath? Are those who worship on Sunday guilty of compromise and succumbing to paganism? Does it even matter? What about those who whose jobs require them to work on Saturday or Sunday? All these questions and more have become the controversy that surrounds this fourth commandment. The real issue however is much more basic and spiritual: Do you honor God by worshipful rest, expressing thankfulness to Him and becoming refreshed so you can serve Him the rest of the week?

Relax! And That's an Order - Part 1 - Part B

If ever there was a commandment tailor made for the workaholic, this is it! God gives permission (in fact an order) to take R and R. What a gracious God we serve to write this into the Top Ten. But this fourth commandment is a controversial one. Some have made it a burden rather than a blessing to keep. Is the Sabbath regulation for the modern Christian or just the ancient Jew? Did the Sabbath get changed? Are we breaking the Sabbath if we worship on Sunday? We’ll explore these issues in the next two weeks.


Exercise for Your Soul - Part A

In the body of Christ, many believers have become idle, preferring to sit around rather than exercise their spiritual gifts. In the message "Exercise for Your Soul," Nate shares why God gives you certain spiritual gifts.


Made for Purpose - Part B

To write one person's DNA blueprint would require 200,000 pages—and God knows every page. In the message "Made for Purpose," Nate shares how you have a custom design—a purpose in life to partner with God through gifts from the Holy Spirit.


Made for Purpose - Part A

Relax! And That's an Order - Part 1 - Part A

If ever there was a commandment tailor made for the workaholic, this is it! God gives permission (in fact an order) to take R and R. What a gracious God we serve to write this into the Top Ten. But this fourth commandment is a controversial one. Some have made it a burden rather than a blessing to keep. Is the Sabbath regulation for the modern Christian or just the ancient Jew? Did the Sabbath get changed? Are we breaking the Sabbath if we worship on Sunday? We’ll explore these issues in the next two weeks.


God's Plan for Israel—and the World - Part B

God is carrying out a supreme plan for the entire world. In the message "God's Plan for Israel—and the World," Skip expounds on that plan, including what it means for your future.


God's Plan for Israel—and the World - Part A

If God promised a kingdom to the Jews, does their rejection of Christ cancel out that promise? In the message "God's Plan for Israel—and the World," Skip gives you the big-picture view of Israel, the church, and the kingdom age.


Salvation: Reverse Engineered - Part B

There are several steps in the journey for anyone who comes to know Christ. In the message "Salvation: Reverse Engineered," Skip talks about the role of belief in salvation, encouraging you to share the good news of Jesus with others.


Salvation: Reverse Engineered - Part A

Evangelism always begins with God’s sovereign election, but it also involves human cooperation. In the message "Salvation: Reverse Engineered," Skip shares practical insight on how you can effectively share the gospel with a lost world.


God, the Jew, and You - Part B

God made so many promises to the Jewish nation, but are those promises void now? In the message "God, the Jew, and You," Skip talks about God's plans for Israel—and where you fit into that plan as well.


God Is Not a Swear Word - Part B

Most folks haven't a clue as to what this third commandment: You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, means. Most guesses would make it to say, "Don’t say bad words!" It may infer that in part, but goes to a much deeper level. Notice the progression of emphasis in the commandments so far: 1st, What we believe about God; 2nd, How we worship God, and 3rd, What we say about God. It's sobering to think that the use of our mouth is the concern of the third in God's Top Ten!

"Your teaching helps me to understand God. My life is not easy and there was a time I was jealous of my husband because he is in heaven and I have to deal with so much. I almost couldn't take it. One day I told God to quit, but then He let me know He is always there, so I decided to go further in my life with Him. It's still not easy but I know one day I will understand."
