  • Son of Nun, pt. 5 - Aligning our Wants

    21/06/2021 Duration: 30min

    In Joshua 7, we find the Israelites after the battle of Jericho. God’s people were told not to touch the sacred things but Achan disobeyed and stole some of them. There is never a more dangerous time for a Christian than on the backside of a victory. We have to change our view of success from doing and getting what we want to getting and doing what God wants for us.

  • Son of Nun, pt. 4 - Do Something!

    14/06/2021 Duration: 24min

    Joshua 6 tells us the story of the Battle of Jericho. Joshua led his troops into Jericho not (at first) with swords and shields but with trumpets. But this whole thing could have possible been avoided if the people of Jericho had repented before the attack. If you are aware that something is not right in your circle of influence, speak up! Not taking action when God is clearly opposed to the situation you are in causes collateral damage. Don’t wait to take action if the spirit is telling you to act - do something!

  • Son of Nun, pt. 3 - True to our Word

    06/06/2021 Duration: 25min

    In Joshua 2, we see that Joshua’s men made a promise and then in Joshua 6, they kept that promise. If you say you will do something, then do it. Our words hold power in that they represent who we are, which represents who God is. If we want people to trust us when it comes to the big things, then they need to be able to trust us with the little things. That means being specific with our language and following through on our promises.

  • Son of Nun, pt. 2 - Prepare for Progress

    30/05/2021 Duration: 32min

    In Joshua chapter 1, Joshua tells the Israelites to prepare for battle. Does that mean they weren’t trusting in God to fight in battle for them? No. Preparedness isn’t a sign of lack of trust in God. Too often Christians take the approach that God will provide as an excuse to skirt responsibility and then we end up in battle without the things necessary to win the fight. Faith is not an excuse for foolishness. We must prepare while we can so that we can be ready when we have to be.

  • Son of Nun, pt. 1 - Strength and Courage

    23/05/2021 Duration: 26min

    In our new series, we’re going to be taking a look at Joshua from the Old Testament. Staying true to our faith requires us to be strong and courageous. They are important if we are to finish our race and remain true to God, a continual theme of Joshua. God will stand by you while you work towards completing it and he won’t leave you a hostage to the outcome. But in order to have this experience we must exhibit strength and courage.

  • Alive, pt. 6 - Changed

    10/05/2021 Duration: 32min

    Even a moment with Jesus can change a person. In Acts 9:1-20, Saul was fundamentally changed from a man who persecuted by the Church to one of its greatest leaders. This teaches us that it doesn’t matter how far you’ve fallen, Jesus can always raise you back up. No matter what your past is, you can still be forgiven and you can still be changed. If you’ve already been changed by Jesus, it’s your job to be the vessel by which Jesus brings change to others - even if you’re a new believer.

  • Alive, pt. 5 - Commissioned

    03/05/2021 Duration: 25min

    In Matthew 28, we get the “Great Commission” from Jesus. What is he commissioning us to do? To spread the good news - that God loves them at died for them. And failure doesn’t look like the world not believing - failure comes when they don’t hear the gospel at all. This isn’t an optional or “when you fee like it” command. It’s something we are to be doing all the time, as we go. But we don’t have to feel alone when we share our faith with others - Christ gives us the assurance that he is always with us.

  • Alive, pt. 4 - Empowered

    25/04/2021 Duration: 34min

    When Jesus appeared to his disciples after his resurrection, he proved that powerful and victorious miracles happen and God is in control. But he wasn’t just proving a point - Christ resurrected himself in order to resurrect us and showed power over death in order to empower us. If you know Jesus, you are loved by the Father, you are sent by the Son and you are empowered by the Spirit.

  • Alive, pt. 3 - Listen and Learn

    19/04/2021 Duration: 28min

    The Old Testament taught God’s people about the coming Messiah and Jesus himself told his followers in person how he would die and rise again... but still they were surprised by the events of the cross and resurrection. Sometimes we are waiting for God to speak to us but often He already has - we just aren’t listening. We don’t need Jesus to do the things Scripture has already deemed appropriate. And not listening is not an excuse for not knowing or inaction.

  • Alive, pt. 2 - Seek and Share

    11/04/2021 Duration: 21min

    Mary Magdalene was one of the first to see Jesus after his resurrection. When the disciples felt as though Jesus had abandoned them, Mary held out hope and looked for him. When we lose sight of Jesus, he is still present, calling your name and waiting for you to return to him. And when you do, he wants you to go and find others who have lost sight just like you did and lead them back to him.

  • Alive, pt. 1 - The Resurrection

    04/04/2021 Duration: 27min

    The resurrection of Jesus is the most significant supernatural event in human history. On Easter, we celebrate the forgiveness of sins by Jesus’ death on the cross but also the power of God to defeat death and offer life. Life is given to followers of Christ here and now but also after physical death - we know that a new life begins. We have to move from nonsense to knowledge, believing that Jesus rose from the dead and we now have life in Him.

  • Continue the Quest, pt. 4 - NightLight

    22/03/2021 Duration: 37min

    The world is starting to turn around on the human trafficking issue and the Church needs to be at the forefront of that battle. It’s a 150.2 billion dollar industry and it’s not going away on its own. Worth isn’t something that’s wrapped up in an occupation - it is innate, cannot be taken from us and is given to us by God. Our goal should be to restore dignity and give life. That starts with seeing the women trapped in the sex industry not as objects or as dirty sinners but as valued daughters of God who need rescue.

  • Continue the Quest, pt. 3 - Community Kitchen

    14/03/2021 Duration: 30min

    In Matthew 25:33-40, Jesus made it clear - we have an obligation to feed the hungry and help the needy. In fact, he really is saying that feeding people is akin to feeding Jesus. 11% of Americans are “food insecure” and in Missouri, that number is higher: 15%. The church needs to be unselfish for personal gain and be like Jesus: meeting people’s spiritual needs and physical needs. Get to know the Community Kitchen in Republic that is doing just that, and is one of our beloved mission partners.

  • Continue the Quest, pt. 2 - Republic Pregnancy Resource Center

    08/03/2021 Duration: 35min

    Jeremiah 1:5 teaches us that life begins before conception ever takes place and that God sets the preconceived apart. Being pro-life is more than being anti-abortion. We need to provide mothers the resources they need to make abortion not seem like their only option and the RPRC does just that. Hear from Mary Jackson, director of the local Pregnancy Resource Center, about how they care for babies, mothers and fathers in our community.

  • Continue the Quest, pt. 1 - Missouri Baptist Children’s Home

    01/03/2021 Duration: 40min

    Each week in this series, we’re going to be highlighting a different missions partner that CrossPoint has. The first week, we’re learning about the Missouri Baptist Children’s Home, a ministry that started in 1886! Giving care to children and adults in many different ways, we invite you to pray for them as we give them monthly support to see their work continue.

  • Affected, pt. 7 - Last But Not Least

    21/02/2021 Duration: 31min

    Prayer is not a spiritual luxury, it is essential to spiritual growth. And yet, Christian find themselves only going to God in prayer during the hardest of times. The truth is, though, is that we need prayer more than even God does - it connects us to Him like nothing else. Our private life with Christ is as important as our public life with Christ. Spend some time in prayer this week!

  • The Absence of Love is Nothing

    14/02/2021 Duration: 28min

    The world today seems to be absent of love, trading it for viciousness and one-upmanship. We’re more prone to prove each other wrong than we are to love each other the way Jesus us taught us to do. The cycle has to be broken at some point and Christ’s people are the ones to do it. Love is what keeps us together and the absence of love is nothing. Watch what you say and how you say it and allow Jesus’ love to be seen through his Church.

  • Affected, pt. 6 - God's House

    08/02/2021 Duration: 39min

    Colossians 3:18-4:1 make it very clear how we are to interact with each other within our homes, but also in our workplace. It has instructions for wives, husbands, parents, children, business owners and employees. Though they are challenging, they are Biblical commands and they are God’s design for our lives.

  • Affected, pt. 5 - Peace, Thanks, and Elbow Grease

    31/01/2021 Duration: 36min

    As Christians peace must be the arbitrator of our hearts. While anxiety views life as a test with every decision as another chance to fail, peace views life as a journey with every decision as another adventure and as an opportunity to trust God. Anxiety can be a sign of arrogance, since it can come from a place of self-reliance rather than leaning on God for help. We should instead be peaceful and, therefore, grateful people. Being a person of gratitude is biblical, and it’s the will on God.

  • Affected, pt. 4 - Old vs. New

    24/01/2021 Duration: 01h12min

    Galatians 3:1-14 shows a very clear distinction between what we were, and what we are to be. We were once ruled by our flesh (our earthly desires and sin) but we are now ruled by Christ. So, when we let the flesh win, we are praising the “God of want”, rather than the God we have. Paul’s charge here is to switch our thinking from things that are temporarily important to eternally important. Christ makes us new, it’s time to act like it.
