July 18, 2021 • Brother Jeff Autry preaches about speaking peace with one another in 1st Peter 3 and James 3. Brother Jonah Lowrance preaches from Galatians 2 showing that we are justified by Christ’s imputed righteousness alone. We can therefore, live in liberty for others.

He preaches from 1st Peter 3:11 and encourages the congregation to not just wish for peace but to pursue it and bring it into their lives.

July 11, 2021 • Elder Bryce Lowrance – Looking for the Christ’s Return

Looking for Christ’s Return • July 11, 2021 Elder Bryce preaching from 1st Thessalonians chapter 5, teaches us that we are to comfort and encourage one another with the fact that Christ is coming back to redeem us. Paul’s focus in this passage shows that we the doctrine of the resurrection is to be used to build and strengthen the body of Christ in the local assembly.

July 4, 2021 • Elder Bryce Lowrance – The Perfect Law of Liberty

The Perfect Law of Liberty • July 4, 2021 (James 1:17-27) The writer, James, expounds upon the conclusion Jesus makes in the Sermon on the Mount in Matthew 7. He gives further examples of the life of those who rejoice in the preaching of the gospel but do not apply it to their lives. They have no true identity and seem to be lost in this world. To the contrary, those that hear the gospel and try to live it in their daily lives, see Christ in themselves. They have peace and enjoy “true liberty.”

June 20, 2021 • Elder Larry White (Acts 10:33) & Brother Jeff Autry (Romans 9 – Election)

Elder Larry opens the preaching time reminding us that, while we are among friends with the Lord’s people, our main focus is to glorify and worship God in His holiness. Brother Jeff Autry then teaches on the subject of eternal election as found in Romans 9.

Psalm 2 • “Kiss the Son” (June 13, 2021)

Psalm 2 • June 13, 2021 Just like the times of 1st Century, the enemies of God still conspire against God and against His church. God laughed at their feeble efforts then and He laughs at them now. The people of God can take great comfort that Christ loves His bride and will protect her with all His power. The nations of the world should take heed and “kiss the Son” by acknowledging his almighty power and dominion.

Psalm 48 • “The Church is Beautiful for Situation” (June 6, 2021)

Psalm 48 • June 6, 2021  Although the author and occassion of this Psalm are unknown to us, the character and content of the Psalm fits very well to the reign of King Jehoshaphat. In praticular, this Psalm reflects the victory he was given when God defeated the three armies that came against him at once. The spiritual application is much like the natural history of Judah. Zion, the church, is in the perfect place to bless and protect God’s people. It is the duty of all the elect to gather themselves in a local church to “greatly praise” the Lord!

Brother Jonah Lowrance & Elder Bryce Lowrance • “Justification” (May 30, 2021)

Brother Jonah preaches from Galatians on the topic of attempting to justify ourselves by our own works. Elder Bryce continues with the same subject in Romans 7 and 8. We see from the example of the Apostle Paul that we will never find peace if we seek to justify ourselves outside of trusting and resting in the finished work of Christ. When we seek to love others, we fulfill the law, and we feel justified.

Psalm 37:1-6 • “Trust in the Lord and Do Good” (May 23, 2021)

Psalm 37:1-6 • “Trust in the Lord and Do Good” (May 23, 2021) Elder Bryce preaches from Psalm 37 where David shows us the four key ways to stop fretting. We are to 1. Trust God 2. Delight in the things of God 3. Commit our lives to God and 4. Rest in the Lord and wait patiently on Him.

Psalm 30 • “There’s Joy in the Morning” (May 16, 2021)

Psalm 30 “There’s Joy in the Morning” (May 16, 2021) Elder Bryce preaches from Psalm 30. In this Psalm David has felt the chastening hand of God for his sin. He prays to God for deliverance and has been forgiven. In response, David not only sings praises to God for His holiness, he encourages all the elect of God to sing as well.

1st John Series • 14: Jesus IS the Son of God – 1st John 5:1-12 (April 18, 2021) When we walk by faith and love others, it is an evidence of our new life in Christ. We should have confidence to walk this way because there is ample evidence in heaven and in earth that Jesus is the Son of God. It is Jesus that dwells in us and gives us the ability to trust Him and love others.

Elder Bryce Lowrance • Jesus Appeared – John 20 & 21 (April 4, 2021) The power of the resurrected Christ is the solution to all trouble and heartache. Elder Bryce shows us a few scenes from the book of John where the resurrected Christ shows up on time and with the perfect solution of peace every time.

1st John Series • 12. Perfect Love

1st John Series • 12. Perfect Love – 1st John 4:7-18 (March 28, 2021) When we know that we are in God and God is in us, fear is driven out of our lives and we can live in liberty and joy. However, it is only when we love like Christ loves us that we truly know that we are in God.

Brother Jeff Autry & Elder Bryce Lowrance (March 21, 2021)

Brother Jeff Autry • Nehemiah 7&8 (March 21, 2021) Brother Jeff continues in his expository messages of rebuilding and uniting from the book of Nehemiah.

Elder Bryce Lowrance • “Anonymous Yet Vital” – Nehemiah and Luke 19 Elder Bryce teaches that God has given us sonship, therefore we owe Him discipleship.

Brother Jonah Lowrance & Elder Bryce Lowrance (March 14, 2021)

Brother Jonah Lowrance • “Stand in the True Gospel of Jesus Christ” – Galatians 1:1-12 (March 14, 2021) Brother Jonah preaches about the theme of Paul’s letter to the churches in the area of Galatia. While describing their turning to a false gospel, he reminds us that we should read and study our Bibles regularly so that we will continue in the true doctrine of Jesus Christ according grace.

1st John Series • 11. Be Your Own Fact Checker – 1st John 4:1-6 (March 14, 2021) In Chapter 4, the Apostle John sounds another warning to God’s people to be aware of and avoid the false doctrines of the world. John tells us to put everything we hear “on trial” by comparing it to the word of God. When we do this we can have assurance that we are standing in the truth and have peace and joy despite the fact we are surrounded by wickedness and hate in the world.

1st John Series • 10. Perceive

1st John Series • 10. Perceive – 1st John 3:10-24 (March 7, 2021) In this message, Elder Bryce teaches us to perceive three things in our discipleship. First of all, we should understand that the world hates us because it hates righteousness. Secondly, We are to understand that God loves us because He acted upon that love and sent His Son to die for us. And lastly, in response to these two things, we should act out our love for God by actively loving others. When we do this, we perceive that we are of God. This justification by faith assures us in our own hearts that we are of God and can still live in liberty even though the whole world lies in wickedness.

Elder Larry White & Elder Bryce Lowrance (February 28, 2021)

Brother Jeff Autry & Elder Bryce Lowrance (February 21, 2021)

Brother Jeff Autry – A Great Work – Brother Jeff applies the lessons of the physical struggles of rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem in Nehemiah 6 with the struggles, trials, and distractions we face today in our walk as disciples.

1st John Series • 8. Behold—Pause and Take a Look – 1st John 2:29-3:3 (February 21, 2021) Elder Bryce reviews the blessings and charges presented in the first two chapters of 1st John, and then he, along with John, invites us to simply take a moment and contemplate the amazing love of God bestowed upon by His sovereign grace. It is amazing that we have been children of God since election, we are children of God now, and as children of God we will be with Him in all eternity. Behold!

1st John Series • 7. The Spirit of Antichrist (February 14, 2021)

Brother Jonah Lowrance & Elder Bryce Lowrance (February 7, 2021)

1st John Series • 5. Love Not the World (January 31, 2021)

1st John Series • 5. Love Not the World (January 31, 2021) In 1st John Chapter 2, there are two major charges given to the children of God – They are to love the brethren but they are NOT to love the world. In today’s message, we find that John is telling us that the life of Jesus Christ, and His standard of holiness, is the measure to which we should compare ourselves. It is only by walking more like Christ that we gain assurance of salvation and find liberty to live our lives in joyfulness.

Elders Bryce Lowrance & Larry White (January 24, 2021)

Elder Bryce Lowrance – 1st John Series • 4. Because – 1st John 2:312-14 (January 24, 2021) In chapter 2 of his Epistle, John has just given a major charge to the disciples of Christ to love others just like Jesus loves them. A few verses later, John will give an equally grand charge to “love not the world.” Between these two charges, he gives a small “pep rally” reminding each of us, that no matter what level of maturity we have in Christ, we are all loved and blessed by the same Father and His Son Jesus Christ. And it is “because” of these graces that John writes to them and us. Elder Larry White – The Compassion of Christ – John 8:1-12.

1st John Series • 3. How Do We Know? (January 17, 2021)

1st John Series • 2. The First Step to Finding Joy (January 10, 2021)

1st John Series • 2. The First Step to Finding Joy. 1/10/21 (1st John 1:4-2:2) John told his readers that his purpose for writing to them is so that they could live a joyful life even though the whole world lies in wickedness. In this message, Elder Bryce shows us that John faithfully tells us how Jesus designed for us to find that joy. In order to have a joyful walk with God from day to day we must see sin as God sees sin. We must repent of it and walk more like Jesus.

1st John Series • Two Things We Know (January 3, 2021) /1st John 5:19/ Elder Lowrance preaches a New Year’s message from several passages in 1st John. He focuses on one of the final verses where we see that there are two things “we know.” We know that we are “of God” and that “the whole world lieth in wickedness.” In this introductory sermon to 1st John, Elder Bryce charges us to understand these two things and to have the resolution to live the abundant, joyful life that God intended for us.

“Unto Us” • Isaiah 9:6,7 (December 20, 2020)

Unto Us! (December 20, 2020) /Isaiah 9:6-7/ This Sunday we celebrated the birth of our Redeemer with a look at the prophecy of His coming found in Isaiah 9:6. We learned that this very special gift of the only begotten Son of God was for US, His chosen people. We then learned some of the beautiful names of our Savior. Elder Bryce concluded the message reminding us that the kingdom of God continues and will continue. It has no end because the ZEAL of God has performed it!

Ephesians Series • 30. Paul’s Farewell (December 13, 2020)

Ephesians Series • 30. Paul’s Farewell (December 13, 2020) In his final message from the Ephesian letter, Elder Bryce gives a brief review of the epistle and then gives the same charge that Paul gave to this church. We are to act on our faith in love. We are to discover more of our faith by loving one another. When we do this, we find true peace.

Ephesians Series • 29. Praying Always (December 6, 2020)

Ephesians Series • 29. Praying Always (December 6, 2020) Today’s sermon completes the look at the elements of the whole armor of God found in Ephesians Chapter 6.

Ephesians Series • 28. The Sword of the Spirit (November 29, 2020)

Ephesians • 28. The Sword of the Spirit (November 29, 2020) NOTE: The audio on this sermon was accidentally recorded from a cellphone in the pew rather than the pulpit microphone. You can still hear the audio but the congregation sound is more prevalent. Elder Bryce continues teaching about the whole armor of God found in Ephesians chapter 6. In this sermon, he describes the 7th element of the armor – prayer. We are taught to have a “life attitude” of prayer, and specifically to be praying for others. By doing this, we effectively wear and use the whole armor of God to fight the good fight of faith in love.

Ephesians Series • 8. Paul’s Prayer (June 7, 2020)

Ephesians Series • 8. Paul’s Prayer – Ephesians 1:15-20 (June 7, 2020) In this message from the expository series on the Letter to the Ephesians, Elder Bryce describes God’s design for the pastor of a local church.

God gives the man a heart for the people he pastors so that he will be willing and able to teach the things they need the most in their lives.

Ephesians Series • 7. Sealed with that Holy Spirit of Promise (May 31, 2020)

Ephesians Series • 7. Sealed with that Holy Spirit of Promise – Ephesians 1:8-14 (May 31, 2020) Having seen that we are saved by grace plus nothing in the first seven verses of the letter, Elder Bryce shows that our belief of the gospel is the key to our joy and peace. Being sealed with that Holy Spirit of promise only comes when we trust Jesus.

Ephesians Series • 6. In Whom We Have Redemption (May 24, 2020)

Ephesians Series • 6. In Whom We Have Redemption (May 24, 2020) /Ephesians 1:7/ Today’s message followed an introduction by Brother Jonah Lowrance describing the natural state of man with God’s grace. Build upon that premise, Elder Bryce teaches that our redemption is not by our will or works, nor is it a choice we made for Christ. Our redemption is based on the fact that God chose us in Christ before the word began. Therefore, our redemption is in HIM and solely by the will and pleasure of God.

Ephesians Series • 4. Adoring God (May 10, 2020)

Ephesians Series • 4. Adoring God (May 10, 2020) /Ephesians 1:3-6/ Elder Bryce continues in Ephesians chapter 1 where the Apostle Paul writes a doxology about the grace of God. Contrary to the contemporary praise songs sung in so many churches today, the Apostle doesn’t just say “God is blessed” and repeat that chorus multiple times. Paul says that God is blessed, and then he gives reasons why! The doctrines of election, predestination, justification, etc. are given as the basis for singing praise to God for His sovereign grace.

Ephesians Series • 3. To The Saints and Faithful (May 3, 2020)

Ephesians Series • 3. To The Saints and Faithful (May 3, 2020) Elder Bryce continues his series on Paul’s letter to the church at Ephesus. Today’s sermon explores the two titles that Paul uses for the members of this church. First of all, he calls them saints. A saint is not an award given by men. It is a title given by God to all His children when He set them apart in election. Secondly, Paul calls them faithful. Not only were these members children of God, they were active in the church with a passion for one another and the Lord. Elder Lowrance closes this sermon with a charge for us to be busy in the kingdom of God.

Ephesians Series • 2. The Will of God (April 26, 2020)

Elder Bryce preaches beginning in Ephesians chapter one contrasting the the will of man and the will of God. With several scriptural proofs he shows that the Bible has very little, if any, good thing to say about the will of man. However, the Bible is filled with glorious examples of God fulfilling his will by His power according to His pleasure. In this sermon, we are charged to discover the will of God in His word and live thereby. This message was preached at Mount Paran Primitive Baptist Church on April 26, 2020.

Our View of the Church (April 19, 2020)

Ephesians Series • 1. Thy First Love (April 5, 2020)

Today’s sermon is the introductory message to an expository look at Paul’s letter to the Church at Ephesus. Elder Bryce begins with the last recorded words to the church in Revelation chapter 2. He then traces the unusual founding and history of this church showing their passion for the Lord, for the Apostle Paul, and for their fellow church members.
