    Destroying Strongholds
    2 Corinthians 10: 3 tells us that the weapons we have as Christians are mighty in God for the complete destruction of strongholds. Strongholds are unholy filters through which our thoughts pass that are based on satanic lies, generational mindsets, and human woundings. But praise be to God that He has given us the weaponry needed to attack the enemy behind those strongholds and eradicate them from our lives.

He urges us to be intentional in our friendships, and examine who we are investing in. True friends don't focus on what they're getting. They focus on what they're giving.

    In his message, Iron Sharpens Iron, drawn from Proverbs 27:17, Ashley Ellison reminds us that there is value in Biblical friendship. We are made unique by our Creator,  and with the ability to sharpen each other. He challenges us to examine if the friends we are surrounding ourselves with are sharpening us for the Kingdom of God or dulling us for the Kingdom of God. Finally, he challenges us to examine if we personally are the kind of friend God has called us to be.

    In his message of Essential: Deep Roots, Chatman Laxton urges us to turn our focus off of what we produce and turn our attention to what allows us the ability to produce in the first place. Being deeply rooted in the Word will allow us to produce longer and fulfill all of what God would have for us.

    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.

    What is kind of fruit are you producing? If we aren't producing the right kind of fruit, or if we aren't producing fruit period, we may want to look at where we are allowing ourselves to be planted. Where are we allowing ourselves to be watered? Because God is the only source that will allow for our lives to always be full of live. In this second part of Pastor's Where You Are message, we take a look at what our live is producing as a great indicator towards an answer to these questions.

    In the second part of The Big Picture, Pastor Ashley takes a deeper look into the importance of the big picture that only comes by hearing from the Lord. We cant be trying to smash pieces from other puzzles into the one that God has you working on. We need to work hard at finding our position in the picture and stop trying to be like everyone else.

    Where are you? Pastor Ashley highlights three primary types of people, Believers, Lost, and Believers who have fallen away. Pastor then talks about the category you find yourself in, is due to where we have planted ourselves, be it Sin or be it the Spirit. We can look at this message and hear an encouragement no matter where we find ourselves lest we be deceived.

    The Big Picture Part 1
    Posted by Ashley Ellison
    In the first part of The Big Picture, Pastor Ashley talks about the importance for us all to grab hold of the vision that God gives us. Without that " big picture" we will keep banging our heads on the wall trying to fit in where we don't go. As Christians trying to find our place in our church, we need to make sure that we aren't trying to bring a different picture to what God is already trying to get finished with the pieces that He's got for us then. Once we finish the work he starts us in, we grow and our vision can grow, but we cant get impatient. We must keep the "big picture" on our minds and in our hearts.

    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.

    Essential : True Worship Part 2
    In the second part of her True Worship message, Melanie Bertoglio takes us deeper into our motives behind our worship. Melanie talks about how true worship is essential to the body of Christ, just as much as any other part that we are obedient to. However, we must constantly check ourselves to make sure that our worship is truly for God, because if we are getting caught up in the things surrounding our worship more than who we are worshipping, we cant get caught up "doing Christian things" the devil's way.

    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.

    Essential : True Worship Part 1
    Does He get your praise? In a culture of personalization, likes and dislikes, Melanie Bertoglio asks this pertinent question boldly to the church. Do we spend more time criticizing the atmosphere around our worship time, than actually in the presence of God? Melanie draws out of scripture that we are called to worship God, and He deserves our praise. Rebelling against this, lines us up with the Deceiver, Lucifer, who sought to steal the honor and praise that only belongs to God.

    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.

    Press On

    In Philippians 3, Paul encouraged the church of the day to "press on toward the goal in order to obtain the prize," which was before them. In what amounted to crazy times with persecution of believers where false teachers who abounded in plenty were preying on the desperate, Paul called them to persevere after the truth! Pastor Ashley brings the same timely word for us as he challenges us, that even in the face of opposition we must not focus on what is going around us, rather we should "Press On" towards what is before us.

    From Malachi 3, Pastor Ashley teaches the church what God means when He commands us to not rob Him. God isn't concerned with running out of gold for the streets of heaven, rather he doesn't want us to rob Him of an opportunity to be bless from Him because of our obedience! God isn't concerned with our tithe because has missing out on something, its because of what it will unlock in our lives by being obedient, that he encourages us to "test Him in this."

    In his sermon, Remember, Pastor Ashley asks us, "What symbols do you have in life that cause you to remember a moment or a season of your life?" When preparing to partake of communion, we understand the imperative to examine ourselves and to remember Christ and His sacrifice. We understand that the bread and juice represent the body and the blood of Jesus. Pastor Ashley points out the additional imperative from John 6:56 to abide, which means (in the Greek) to "remain and continue to remain" connected to Jesus in everyday life, not just on Sundays and Wednesdays.

    In today's culture of dispensable technology, Pastor Ashley speaks to the wisdom of 1st Thessalonians 5:21 which tells us to ," Hold on to what is good." From this passage, Pastor shows us how essential it is for the church to stop and take a look at the things that we are "throwing away". If we want to continue to grow in the things of the Lord ,then we will have to start honoring the good things that God is placing in our lives.

    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.

    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.
