Why we believe in the Church.

We Believe in the Church. It matters what we believe about the church. The church is the most important solution the world has access to. As followers of Jesus, we MUST understand its potential of the local church, the power of healthy church, and priority of living like God’s people. If we get these three…

How to discern a call from God (sermon supplement)

Here are some helpful thoughts and ideas that will hopefully help your understanding as we look at the life of Paul on April 8, 2018 and allow me to keep my messages focused on applicable content and shorter:-) 1. Timeline of Paul’s conversion. (Source: Paul the apostle by Robert E. Picirilli, pg. 52) 33/34 AD…

My wife can preach!

   This past Sunday, my wife helped me preach.  We talked about how men and women are called to love each other in marriage and focused on the key to everything: forgiveness.  She brought a very valuable woman’s perspective.  If you want to check it out, CLICK HERE! She did a great job and will…

We did what they said couldn’t be done!

In the past week, we’ve had a number of contractors or people come into our new church space and ask, “When will you guys move in?”  Each time we told them, “This Sunday”, they immediately laughed or looked at us with disbelief.   But we did it. And by we, I mean our awesome church…

Connection Point Church is (soft) launching this Sunday

This past Sunday was our largest non-holiday attendance at CPC.  It was also the last Sunday in our current space.  This Sunday we are moving into our new, larger church space.  Our new space is more than double our current space and will allow us to grow beyond our current capacity.   A soft launch…

The four biggest secrets to a great marriage (part 1)

I just started preaching a marriage series at our church.  This series is basically the result of more than a decade of counseling others in their marriages, preparing new couples to be married, and from my own Marraige.  These are (in my opinion) the most important keys to a successful, lifelong marriage. #1- Understand the…

I’m going back to Peru (and you can too!)

 I am headed back to Peru this Summer!  Since 2012, we have started 21 churches in Peru and seen over 1475 people enter into a relationship with Jesus!   If you’d like to support me, you can do so here! Here is a recap of some of our work in Puno:                …

CPC is Moving!

One thing I love about our church is that we get things done!  We recently began renovating a larger space in our center for our church.  I love to see the church build a church by physically building our church.  It takes everyone to see God move in our church like this!  We were able…

Starting new churches in Peru.

Our mission in Peru last month was to start 6 churches and encourage and train them so that we can return next year and partner with them to start at least 6 more.  The trip was challenging, but extremely successful.  Our group partnered with pastors to help  them start churches.  Here are the teams that…

Sharing Jesus In Peru!

Here are some pics of our church members sharing Jesus with the people of Puno, Peru.  In total, 165 people began a personal relationship with Jesus on this trip.

In light of recent events…

This blog post is written primarily to members of Connection Point Church and secondary to believers anywhere.  As you are aware, the Supreme Court decision last Friday redefined marriage in the United States.  Many of us prayed that the outcome of the decision would be different. Over the past week, I have seen a wide variety…

A message on sowing and reaping

What do you do when you are in a dry season? As I was preparing for this week, I was reminded of a previous message I taught on this idea. Here is a message I preached a few years back that dealt with a similar idea. Feel free to listen to it if you have the desire.

Sermon Notes- Fact 5: The Empty Tomb

FACT 5: The Empty Tomb Roughly 75% of scholars believe this to be historical fact according to Gary Habermas. 3(of many)  arguments for the empty tomb. The Jerusalem Factor Jesus was publicly executed in Jerusalem (uncontroversial) and his resurrection was first claimed there (uncontroversial).  This seems unlikely if there is a tomb with Jesus’ body…

Three things that happen when you serve

Serving gives us purpose.  I believe that with all of my heart.  If you are going through a time of struggle or a time of wandering, serving is often the antidote to a tough season.  Last week our church was able to participate in the City of Plano’s “Love Where You Live” initiative.  I love…

Sermon Notes from History’s Mystery (week 3)

“I am going to use 4 historical facts so strongly attested historically that nearly every scholar that studies the subject agrees, even the skeptical ones” Fact 1: Jesus died by crucifixion. (this is uncontroversial) Fact 2: Jesus’ disciples believe he rose from the dead and appeared to them. What is the evidence that this is…

Sermon Notes from History’s Mystery (Week 2)

To view the sermon that corresponds to these notes, go here. The importance of the Resurrection: The resurrection is the test by which we know if Jesus was telling the truth. It is not subjective, like Mormonism or Islam. We will not appeal our beliefs to simple faith in this series, ie, like Islam and…
