Sermon Archive

Welcome to my sermon archive page!

The following are a sampling of sermons I have delivered from the pulpit at Riverside Baptist Church, along with a few other places. Unfortunately, none of the recordings are from where I am now the pastor, South Soddy Baptist Church.

I do not have the spare change to buy the extra memory available through WordPress. Therefore, the following links will be to an offsite website to which I upload the recordings.

Most all of these recordings were made on my iPhone 4s, then edited with Audacity (free software) on my computer (Riverside Baptist did not have the technology to digitally record).

My prayer is that these sermons will be used by God to minister to people all around the world. If God uses one to speak to you, I’d love to hear about it!

Sermons from Newest to Oldest

“We Preach Jesus!” (Recorded at Chinhoyi Baptist Church, Chinhoyi, Zimbabwe)

“Eternal Security: 6 Arguments Your Salvation Is Secure” (4/17/2016)

“While Waiting In Athens” (4/03/2016) From Acts 17:14-23

Why the Cross? (3/20/2016)

 This sermon answers some of the questions surrounding why Jesus HAD to be crucified.

“Who Am I?” (1/24/16)

The burning bushI was reading the story of Moses in Exodus 3 and was struck by the sad and painful question Moses asked God: “Who am I, that I should go unto Pharaoh, and that I should bring forth the children of Israel out of Egypt?” There was a lot more to that question than “Who am I?” That’s why I took the time to ask some more questions and give a few answers from the Bible. Should you be like me, there are probably times when you don’t feel worthy or qualified to be used by God for anything. Well, be encouraged! If God can use Moses, he can use you!

Are You Hurting? Jesus Understands. (1/17/16)

This sermon aired on the radio on January 17. It was a condensed version of the message I had shared that previous Wednesday night with our congregation. The Scriptures referenced were Hebrews 4:15 and Isaiah 53:5. You see, Jesus suffered about every kind of pain we can imagine, if not worse. So, it’s not a stretch to say that Jesus understands what we feel, both emotionally and physically.

Don’t Be a Fool In 2016: 12 Marks of a Fool (12/27/15)

This sermon is one which was aired on our local radio program. It was the last broadcast for the year. Someone actually told me it was a good message 😉

Acts 11: Three Things About Barnabas (11/15/15 p.m. service)

For some reason I did not record this message when I first preached it at Riverside in the Sunday evening service. However, I did use the same outlined and preached the following shortened version for the radio broadcast.

Thankful for God’s Goodness (11/15/15 a.m. service)

Thankful for Grace (11/08/15)

This is the first of three messages for the Thanksgiving season of 2015. I am so thankful for God’s amazing grace!

Don’t Take the Devil’s Offer (11/01/15)

The following sermon was recorded for the radio broadcast to be aired on Sunday evening, November 1, 2015. It is based on Psalm 2 and Luke 4.

It Is Well With My Soul (And Why) (11/01/15 a.m. service)

Acts 10: The Gospel Comes to the Gentiles (10/25/15 pm service)

The following is an example of a sermon delivered in a typical laid-back expository style. Sunday evenings are usually more conversational being that the crowds are smaller and the energy level is not as high.

A Review of Acts 1-9  (10/18/15)

I preached this message in order to help my congregation remember the main points from the first nine chapters of the Book of Acts. Next week, Lord willing, I will be preaching from Acts 10, but in this message I wanted to take the time to get everyone up to speed.

As an added bonus, my middle daughter, Katie, starts everything off with a personal testimony 🙂

All Lives Matter: Acts 8:26-38; John 3:16 (9/13/15)
