Kingdom Path with Dr. Ed Newton Matthew 6:19-24 In every facet of our lives, there are just two choices on the shelf, “pleasing God or pleasing self!” The goal of today’s message is to connect our “Heart to the ultimate Treasure!” by recognizing GREED and Rejecting it!
info_outline Kingdom Provision with Dr. Ed Newton 10/06/2019
Kingdom Provision with Dr. Ed Newton Text: Matthew 6:1-4 Target: To recognize the immediate daily tension of the underlying reasons of why we seek Jesus and why we choose to follow Him. Our hope is to move from the perspective of Christianity that begins with the idea of “what about me”, then settles for “what's in it for me” to know the reward of following Jesus “is not about me”.

From Hate to Harmony: How to Resist Retaliation with Jeff Wallace Text: Matthew 5:38-42 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.’ But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also. And if anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, hand over your coat as well. If anyone forces you to go one mile, go with them two miles. Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you.” Romans 12:17-18 “Do not repay anyone evil for evil.

Kingdom Passion with Dr. Ed Newton Text: Matthew 5:21-26 Target: To understand that every one of us has an “anger issue” at some level revealing at times the worst part of who we are, but the difference between the “management of anger” and “anger management” is found in changing the order in which we process disappointment.
info_outline Above All with Dr. Ed Newton 07/29/2019
Above All with Dr. Ed Newton Text: John 3:31-36 Target: The final words of John the Baptist to the masses is one of the most systematic synopses on the life and ministry of Jesus. The pursuit of today’s message is to allow belief to drive our behavior, not our behavior to dictate our beliefs.
info_outline Now Introducing Jesus with Dr. Ed Newton 07/01/2019
Now Introducing Jesus with Dr. Ed Newton Text: John 1:29, Matthew 3:13-17 Target: The greatest privilege of John the Baptist was to introduce Jesus to the world, but that same privilege God gives us every day. Seize the Moment you have been given!

Audience of One with Dr. Ed Newton Text: Matthew 3:1-12 Target: Messages that are most memorable are the ones that are insightful, impactful, but most of all...impressionable! What John the Baptist had to say, how he said it, and how he lived it encourages us all to live a life worth imitating!
info_outline A Father's Heart with Dr. Ed Newton 06/17/2019
A Father's Heart with Dr. Ed Newton Text: Malachi 4:6: “And he will turn the hearts of fathers to their children and the hearts of children to their fathers.” Target: The way a person perceives God is the lens in which a person sees the world, and the way they see themselves. Our effort today is to change out the lens!
info_outline The Unknown Stone with Dr. Ed Newton 05/26/2019
The Unknown Stone with Dr. Ed Newton A rock is rock until a rock is repurposed and then it becomes a stone. For the rock itself hasn’t changed, but what it is being used for has, thus requiring a name change. Today, we seek to repurpose rocks into stones.
info_outline Unknown Mom with Dr. Ed Newton 05/13/2019
Unknown Mom with Dr. Ed Newton Proverbs 31 has been a standard of inspiration for all women but has also quietly served as a mark of intimidation. My hope today is by revealing the “Unknown Mom” behind this proverb a new perspective would be gained, and an unspoken pressure would be relieved.
info_outline Unknown Eternity with Robert Emmitt 05/05/2019
Unknown Eternity with Robert Emmitt TEXT: John 3:3-16 The world spends trillions of dollars each year on healthcare, vitamins, diets and exercise, and yet the death rate still remains at 100%, and the average life is 71. “Seventy years are given to us! Some even live to eighty. But even the best years are filled with pain and trouble; soon they disappear and we fly away.” (Psalms 90:10) But where do we fly away to?
info_outline Unknown Interruption with Dr. Ed Newton 04/21/2019
