Pastor Phil Perry

HIS Story
One with God (The Two Natures of Jesus)

As Jesus ministry continues, the question of Who He is comes up. It is a question we still wrestle with today as His natures are beyond our comprehension and understanding. We will attempt to get a glimpse of Jesus…

John 3-4

HIS Story
Nicodemus and the Samaritan Woman (God reaches the religious and sinner)

Quickly in Jesus ministry we see that His approach is different and radical. He meets one on one with two very different people and is able to convey the good news to both in a relevant and impactful way. We too are tasked with reaching a divergent group of people and we must be as creative as Jesus was in reaching them…

Pastor Phil Perry

HIS Story
The Early Ministry of Jesus

Jesus ministry began quickly and soon many followed Him. Not many of these will end up being genuine followers and there seemed to be a desire to fit into the latest rage and trend. His early ministry incorporated lots of miracles and preaching. This morning we will look at a sample message recorded in Matthew and Luke. This would not have been a complete copy; but most likely a “cliff” notes version…

Pastor Phil Perry

HIS Story
The Temptation of Jesus

Immediately following Jesus temptation, Jesus is led into the wilderness and after he fasts for 40 days, he is confronted by the evil one himself—Satan. How does this fit into the overall story? We are reminded that Jesus endured everything we endure, yet He did not sin. How would we handle these temptations? How do we handle other things that life throws at us? Jesus shows us the way to overcome and remain faithful…

Pastor Phil Perry

HIS Story
The Baptism of Jesus

When an event is recorded in all 4 Gospels, it is a significant event to take note of. Jesus baptism is the first of such events and marks the beginning of His adult ministry. In tell-tale fashion, each of them has a different emphasis and all 4 need to be examined to get the best understanding of this event…

Pastor Phil Perry

HIS Story
The Birth of Jesus

The birth of Jesus is fairly familiar to most; but often familiarity leads to a lack of focus. This was the most marvelous event to happen in all of history, and almost no one knew of its importance. In our day it is no less overlooked or seen as a Sunday school tale. There is much to be reminded of when it comes to the entrance of God into humanity…

Pastor Phil Perry

HIS Story
Judah, Captivity and Silence

The final 900 years before Jesus’ coming in Judah were filled with ups and downs; highs and lows. Most of the ending of the Bible is focused upon Judah and God’s calling them back to Himself. Great wasted years and countless lost lives litter the ending of the Old Testament; but through it all we see God in His power and wisdom working His plan!

Missionary Paul Fulk

Missionaries

Church planting missionaries Paul & Laura Fulk share their ministry in south Salt Lake City, Utah.

Pastor Phil Perry

HIS Story
Israel’s Rebellion Against God

As the story progress from King David to his descendants, the decline of the nation becomes evident. Corruption, chaos, intrigue, coup, murder, disobedience; it quickly descended into a mess. God was at work through it all though even in the darkest moments. We as a nation also need to take a self-evaluation and ask how similar we are to ancient Israel…

Pastor Phil Perry

1Samuel 16

HIS Story
David, a Man After His Own Heart

Perhaps the most famous of Israel’s kings is David. He was a musician, a shepherd, a giant killer and most famous as an adulterer. He was both loved and feared as king; and the Bible describes him as a man after God’s own heart…

Pastor Phil Perry

Ruth 1

HIS Story
Israel's First King

For Israel, the period before the rise of the kings is one of turmoil, chaos and problems. The priests show corruption and sinful tendencies. The judges, while regionally effective, don’t bring the nation together. Every man does what he thinks is right and Israel is far from a unified nation. She needs a leader who will bring them together and most importantly bring them back into obedience before God…

Pastor Phil Perry

Joshua 1

HIS Story
The Promised Land

Following the ministry of a great man can be difficult. Joshua is Moses hand selected successor and he is responsible for getting this rag-tag group of wilderness wanderers to settle down and conquer the land God had led them to. Vast changes were occurring from how God led them to how they were organized. They were facing a land filled with city-states that had to be defeated one by one. It was an incredible 400 year period between Moses and the rise of the kings…

Pastor Phil Perry

Exodus 32

HIS Story
The Wilderness Journey

For 40 years Israel wandered in the wilderness. Moses faithfully led them and true to form they tested Moses and God the whole way. Israel though is not much different from us. They were consumed with what was right in front of them, not the cloud of God’s presence, but the circumstances of life. God showed Himself to them on a daily basis, yet all they saw was problems and troubles…

Pastor Phil Perry

Exodus 20

HIS Story
The 10 Words

The 10 commandments have garnered lots of attention lately. They have been banned from courtrooms and schools as “too religious”. Most people in America couldn’t tell you what was in them anyway and certainly society doesn’t want those restrictive things telling us what to do. Sadly many church attenders don’t know what they are or if they still apply to us; and certainly how we can see God in them…

Exodus 13-19

HIS Story
The Exodus

As Israel leaves Egypt, God has to continually protect, sustain and correct them. Once again God’s character and patience come shining through. Israel constantly tests Him, but He is kind and slow to anger with them; what a Great God we serve!

4/21/2013

Pastor Phil Perry

Exodus 7-13

HIS Story
Plagues and Passover

God’s story continues with a confrontation between 2 powerful men; Amenhotep II and Moses. God uses this confrontation to not only set Israel free, but to proclaim His sovereignty and power over all of the gods of Egypt. Our God is greater, our God is stronger, our God is higher than any other god…

Pastor Phil Perry

Exodus 1-7

HIS Story
The Call of Moses

One of the most famous men in the Bible is Moses (Moshe). He is seen as a powerful leader, a prophet and a priest. He did not start out his ministry in great power and strength. It is a reminder that ultimately if God is not in it, it will fail; no matter how great a leader we are…
