    Stay in Your Lane
    Posted by Chatman Laxton
    Your lane is the path and call of God that He has marked out for your life. Chatman Laxton teaches that even doing "good things" can pull us out of our lane and off of that path.

    Proverbs Part 8
    Posted by Chatman Laxton
    In the 8th part of our Proverbs study, Chatman focuses on the importance of our spiritual maturity as we continue down the path that wisdom has for us. Maturity in Spirit, is essential if we are to ever grow in the Lord. Without being spiritually mature, we will never be able to fully grasp ahold of the truths that God has for us, instead we will always stay locked in an undeveloped state. Which limits our ability to do what God would have us to do.

    In the 7th Part of our Proverbs study, Chatman Laxton shows us how on the path of wisdom, God gives direction for our lives. In his message Chatman shows us how wisdom is really easy to understand, yet its much harder to follow when it calls us to fix things in our life that keep us from struggling. However, if we can submit to the change that God wants to do in our life through the direction he gives through his commands and his insight, we will go much deeper in our relationship.

    Posted by Chatman Laxton
    In the 6th Part of our study of Proverbs, Chatman sheds to light the idea that we were created for the path that wisdom calls us to. In fact its the path of wisdom that was the first meeting place where God and Adam would convene on in the garden, building there relationship up. And since the fall, God has been calling us back, out of the bushes and back onto the path with Him. Starting in Proverbs 2, Chatman begins to show us that the path of wisdom holds in store for us protection and provision, which allows us to continue down the path into deeper things.

    Posted by Chatman Laxton
    In the 5th part of the Proverbs series, Chatman brings a verse by verse comparison of the way Wisdom and Folly call us in chapter 9. As we see in the chapter, Wisdom and Folly have very different plans for us, through what they call us to. Our understanding of Folly's plan for our life(which is destruction) will hopefully make us think twice before we take the bait.

    In the third part of our Proverbs study, Chatman Laxton brings in the idea that wisdom is a direct reflection of Christ in the New Testament. By looking through the lens of 1 Corinthians 1:30, and specifically the part that says "Jesus Christ has become our wisdom," we can have a deeper understanding of how important the wisdom in Proverbs is for us. God fully intended His people to be wise, and as His people, we should be "waiting at wisdom's doorpost" with expectation.

    Essential: Excellence
    Posted by Chatman Laxton
    In his message of "Essential: Excellence'', Chatman conveys the importance of Christians operating at the highest level. Through the message of Cain and Abel, Chatman brings to light that the favor Cain so desired could've been his had he only pursued excellence thoroughly. In our lives it's important to the kingdom that we operate in excellence or else we soon will be facing disasters of our own.

    In his sermon "Awakened" Chatman urges us to wake up to the hope that we all share in Christ Jesus. This hope is more than what we can get from God, it is a relationship with God Himself that is our joy and strength.

    The Pursuit of Happiness
    Posted by Chatman Laxton
    In his message The Pursuit of Happiness, Chatman addresses the importance of being led by the Spirit of God in our pursuits instead of being led into captivity by the lies of idols. God wants us to be happy, but in our free will if we aren't careful we will raise up strongholds for the enemy.

    Pastor Ashley Ellison gives a Biblical response to COVID-19. He encourages us that Christ is over every sickness and disease and that it is our responsibility to lean on Joshua 1:9 during difficult times. "Be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go."

    Posted by Chatman Laxton
    Chatman Laxton uses the life and mistakes of Jephthah to remind us of the futility of bargaining with God for things that He has already given. Jephthah knew all of the facts, but he didn't know the Father's heart. He unnecessarily sacrificed his future to secure what was already in God's heart to do for him.
