Thank You for Visiting

Due to the latest concerns regarding coronavirus, the Unity Baptist congregation will not be meeting at the church at this time. Sermon audio will be posted here and we will be working on keeping in touch with our seniors who are not connected online. The state of emergency will expire on May 13th. We will consider at that time whether or not it is safe and wise to gather together for worship.

Peace to you, and God bless.

Day of Pentecost

Jesus appeared to many, in crowds large and small, for 40 days after his resurrection. Ascension Day is 40 days after Easter and Jesus commanded his followers one final time to wait in Jerusalem for the promise. Pentecost is celebrated 50 days after Easter Sunday. I may have contributed to some confusion lately and wanted to clear that up. What happened is more important than when it happened so here we go…

Matthias the Apostle

We read God’s Word and seek to know his will so that we can be found in God’s will. To think that any of us individually is responsible for bringing about God’s will or can interfere with his plans taking place makes too much of one’s self and does not give God enough credit.

Elizabeth and Mary: A Mother’s Day Sermon

Perhaps an unusual text for Mother’s Day but we will do the same thing we do every week, and that’s read God’s Word and let it speak to us. Elizabeth and Mary are two characters that play a pivotal role in the Bible narrative. They are also the mothers of John the Baptist and Jesus Christ. As we honor mothers today the application of the text applies to everyone everywhere. Hear and believe the Gospel.

First Things First

The Apostle Paul reminds us to keep the most important thing most important.

Road to Emmaus

Jesus joined two disciples on the road to the village of Emmaus but they did not know it was Jesus. They told him everything they knew about the events in Jerusalem that week, then Jesus told them everything he knew about what Moses and the Prophets said about him. Anyone can read the Bible and understand some of it. True understanding of God’s Word only comes from God himself.

Seeing is Believing?

Screenshot 2020-04-19 at 11.17.52 AMWe are naturally skeptical and that is probably to our benefit. We have to process information before deciding what to believe and what to dismiss. Faith and belief are related but not necessarily the same thing. When Jesus’s disciples saw him after the resurrection they had trouble fully believing even though they really wanted to. It is not wrong to admit that we struggle. It is never wrong to confess that we are having trouble and ask God for help, and that includes matters of faith and belief. It is never wrong to ask God for more faith.

Easter Sunday; Resurrection Day

So they went out quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, and ran to bring His disciples word. –Matthew 28:8 NKJV

They were filled with fear and great joy. Being afraid did not cancel out the joy of hearing that Jesus had risen as he said. We can have peace in a world that does not know peace. We can rejoice in tribulation, we can praise him in the storm. That has always been the message of Easter morning. The tomb is empty. Death, hell and the grave have been defeated.

Parable of the Wicked Tenants

Palm Sunday, one week before Easter, is when we remember Jesus entering Jerusalem as crowds of people waved palm branches and shouted Hosanna! During Holy Week, or Passion Week, Jesus divided his time between public appearances and time alone teaching his disciples. The parable of the wicked tenants is one of his public sermons in which he address the leaders of Israel and spoke to his followers about what was about to happen; not directly but in the language of analogy.

Easter is in Two Weeks

Palm Sunday is coming up on April 5th, Easter is April 12th. If we are not able to meet together by that time I hope to do something more than just post sermon audio. This short announcement via YouTube is as much of a test as anything. Nothing is certain, pray for us and bear with us. Trying to be the church.
