Sermons by Pastor Marc Goodwin

Message to the Senders

In this sermon from Romans 10:13-15, Pastor Marc addresses two important issues — why missionaries must go, and why missionaries must be sent. This was part of a Commissioning Sunday, as we sent out a couple to go to a closed access country with the gospel.

Jars of Clay

Listen as Pastor Marc preaches from 2 Corinthians 4:7-18, discussing how perspective is needed in order to persevere through affliction. Our weakness and suffering are integral to God’s plan, not incidental. So it’s vital that we learn to see them through His eyes, not our own.

The Light of Christ

Listen in as Pastor Marc preaches from 2 Corinthians 4:1-6, as he describes the veil that Satan hangs in order to blind us from the light of the gospel, which shows us the glory of Christ. A fitting passage for Resurrection Sunday!

Waypost 4: Internalization

Waypost 3: Inform

In this third sermon from our Wayposts series, entitled “Inform,” Pastor Marc preaches from 2 Timothy 3:14-17.
