Gift of Love to the Unloved - The Gift Series
Jim Campbell |
12/04/2016 |
Every year we try to buy the right gift...something that people will appreciate...something that tells people how much we value them...something that will change that special someone's life. But most of what we buy are only temporary expressions. What gym memberships, iPads or trips to Disney World can't do, another gift can, because it lasts and reverberates in ways we cannot believe. Today begins our special Christmas series, The Gift. In this sermon, Pastor Jim addresses how God blesses those who feel unloved when they choose to praise Him anyway. Sermon Notes: http://bible.com/events/135216
Count Your Blessings
Scott Wilson |
11/27/2016 |
There are a lot of Scriptures related to Thanksgiving, and one of the commands is that in everything, we should give thanks. But that’s not always easy to do. We should count our blessings and give thanks for them, but we forget to do that a lot. Listen as Lead Pastor Scott explains how to have a thankful heart and count your blessings no matter where life finds you today, and how God will continue to bless you for it. Sermon Notes: https://www.bible.com/events/130817
Sunday: The Day the King Rose Again - 4 Days That Matter Most
Jim Campbell |
11/20/2016 |
All of us have big moments in our lives, when we have to make a choice or a response to an important situation. Sometimes it's who to marry, or which college to attend, or whether or not to move for the big job promotion. And our responses make all the difference. Listen to how Jesus made the right response and shows us what our best response can be also. Sermon Notes: http://bible.com/events/128885
Friday & Saturday: The King Died and Was Buried - 4 Days That Matter Most
Jim Campbell |
11/13/2016 |
On a Friday, God took the worst situation in the world that He could have possibly created to put His Son through, and turned it into a victory. And for the thief on the cross who deserved his punishment, but was willing to admit who Christ was, following Christ was the single most successful moment of his life. For that reason, God gave him not only victory, but also a reward, and that same reward is available for you and me as well. Listen how in this second part of our sermon series, the 4 Days That Matter Most.
Thursday: The Night Before the King's Cross
Jim Campbell |
11/06/2016 |
4 days...96 hours...it all came down to four days. Jesus is nearing the finish line of the Earthly mission, and just like when we leave somewhere for the last time, he purposefully and systematically moves through his final hours on Earth. In these 4 days, he gives us some of the most startling revelations about the character of God and some of the most powerful life lessons about us. Don't miss the truth of the "4 Days that Matter Most" in this first part of our series about "Thursday: The Night Before the King's Cross." Sermon Notes: http://bible.com/events/121812
The Rewards of the Future - Future...According to Jesus Series
Jim Campbell |
10/30/2016 |
Sometimes as Christians we can get to the point where we think, “Ok, rewards—we shouldn’t be working for those. It’s even sinful to want them.” But God made you to want and enjoy rewards, and He made rewards to work into His system. Listen as Pastor Jim explains how sometimes sin taints them or causes us to put too much emphasis on them, or makes rewards the goal, instead of what God intended them to be. Sermon Notes: http://bible.com/events/117967
The Future is Now - Future...According to Jesus Series
Jim Campbell |
10/23/2016 |
We live in uncertain times. We wonder what’s going to happen here, and around the world. For as long as humans have been on the Earth, we have questioned what is to come. “What is our future?” Still, The Future always remains a mystery. But are we looking at it from the right perspective, and is that missing perspective causing us to miss the hope that the future brings? While God hasn’t told us everything, He has told us many things about what the future is, what the future holds, and Who holds the future. Sermon Notes: http://bible.com/events/114897
At the Door- Future...according to Jesus Series
Jim Campbell |
10/16/2016 |
Everyone wonders what is just around the corner in their lives. "Are the decisions I'm making right now the right ones?" Today, we'll look at understanding what the future is and how to make decisions to be eternally successful as it unfolds, as we look at the book of Matthew in this part of our series "Future...according to Jesus." Sermon Notes: http://bible.com/events/111318
Who Would Jesus Vote For?
Bruce Cadle |
10/09/2016 |
Many people feel very strongly about the Presidential candidates, either for or against one or the other, but how many of us have stopped to ask God how we should vote? Listen as guest speaker Bruce Cadle explains how Jesus doesn't belong to a party, and was himself not here to overthrow the government, but to save our souls, despite the fact that many people believed Him to be a king who would overthrow the rulers of their time. Listen and learn how to find out: who would Jesus want us to vote for?
The Hope of Revival
Rich Lee |
10/02/2016 |
Today is a special day as we begin our ONE Cry conference. Today, we'll have Rich Lee, from Life Action Ministries, delivering our message, and I would like to personally encourage you to attend the services tonight at 5 pm and Monday-Wednesday at 6 pm, all held at our Melbourne Campus (3301 Dairy Road, Melbourne). This conference will be an incredible time of focus on God as we cry out as a nation for Him to heal our land and let the revival "begin with me." Sermon Notes: https://www.bible.com/events/103736
How to Know if You're a Pharisee - Enrolled in King's College Series
Jim Campbell |
09/25/2016 |
The Pharisees of the Bible definitely have a reputation for being hypocrites. Jesus called them that on several occasions, so it's easy for us to look down on them and think we're not like them at all, or we're better than they are, but how can you be really sure? Listen as Pastor Jim explains some aspects of the Pharisees, and how we might actually be living like they were, instead of how God commands us to be: loving toward ALL people, even the hypocrites. Sermon Notes: http://bible.com/events/100530
The Question - Enrolled in King's College Series
Jim Campbell |
09/18/2016 |
The Pharisees and Sadducees were famous for trying to trap Jesus with “trick questions.” But one day, one of them, wisely recognizing Jesus’ wisdom, asked what is perhaps the most important question of all. Find out what it was and Jesus’ answer, as well as how that should impact our lives every day. Sermon Notes: http://bible.com/events/96773
From the Past to the Future
Jim Campbell |
09/11/2016 |
HAPPY 7TH BIRTHDAY BAY WEST! Today is a dual anniversary. For our country, it is a somber day of remembrance when a group of people attempted to squash the spirit of our country, but instead exposed the heart of our country, as our first responders showed incredible bravery in responding to the worst terrorist attack in our history. For Bay West, on the second Sunday of September in 2009, we had our first worship service in Heritage High School and Bay West began. For the last 7 years, God has shown His Spirit through His work at Bay West. Today, we'll be celebrating the vision that God has given us! Sermon Notes: http://bible.com/events/92944
Challenging a Peerless Professor - Enrolled in King's College Series
Jim Campbell |
09/04/2016 |
While He was on the earth, Jesus was unmatched in wisdom by even the wisest religious leaders of the time.The Pharisees continually challenged Jesus, and lost every time. They could not outsmart him, because they didn’t understand what he was there to teach, or the point of his earthly ministry. No matter what the questions, Jesus not only had a wiser answer, but demonstrated a different, wiser perspective as well, which we can learn from in today’s sermon on Jesus, the “Peerless Professor.” Sermon Notes: Sermon Notes: http://bible.com/events/89478
Field Trip to The Royal City - Enrolled in King's College Series
Jim Campbell |
08/28/2016 |
We learn things when we get out of the classroom, which is one of the reasons teachers take their students on field trips. Jesus took the disciples on a field trip to the royal city, Jerusalem, where the people shouted, “Hosanna to the Son of David!” They thought He was coming to save them from Roman rule, but the lessons Jesus had for them were much more important than a government. Listen as Pastor Jim explains about spiritual blindness, inward corruption, and a fig tree. Sermon Notes: http://bible.com/events/85716
A Lesson on Finishing Last - Enrolled in King's College Series
Jim Campbell |
08/21/2016 |
Jesus talks in Matthew chapter 21 about greatness and exposes so many things for us that maybe we are wrongly grasping onto. He begins with a parable about workers who all got paid the same for working in a vineyard, even though some had worked all day, and some only a few hours. Listen as pastor Jim explains how Jesus wasn’t being unfair, and what Jesus meant by “the first shall be last and the last shall be first.” Sermon Notes: http://bible.com/events/82290
The Good Teacher: When the Good Isn't Good Enough- Enrolled in King's College Series
Jim Campbell |
08/14/2016 |
A rich young ruler once asked Jesus, “What must I do to inherit eternal life?” But he went away sad at Jesus’s answer. Having the right resume will never be enough, and even doing the right things are never enough. The point wasn’t just about “making the grade,” but building the foundation for something that would pay off later, and not understanding that, we often reach for the lower goal of achievement only. That sabotages our ultimate success. Find out what is enough according to Jesus, what was stopping the rich young ruler from truly following all God had for him, and what He has planned for us as well. Sermon Notes: http://bible.com/events/78852
Jesus on Marriage, Divorce, Sexuality, and Gender - Enrolled in King's College Series
Jim Campbell |
08/07/2016 |
Gender is a part of God’s plan, and God has specific intentions regarding marriage. In our culture, we think gender is a fluid decision of man, but it’s not. God’s message and plan for humanity is actually expressed through the creation of gender in people. There was nothing God made that isn’t a reflection of who God is and to lead us closer to Him. Listen as Pastor Jim explains God’s intentions about marriage, divorce, gender, and sexuality using Matthew 19. Sermon Notes: http://bible.com/events/75499
Forgiveness 101 - Enrolled in King's College Series
Jim Campbell |
07/31/2016 |
Life is hard, but Jesus can make it better. Jesus is the master of navigating life, people, and circumstances. He understands humans better than humans understand themselves. He understands this world that He created. There has never been a wiser man that walked the Earth, and His wisdom spans all cultures, time periods, technology, and points of view. During our current sermon series, we'll learn about a number of everyday practical subjects that each of us face. So be Enrolled in King's College and educate yourself on the one true King, starting with today's lesson on Forgiveness 101. Sermon Notes:http://bible.com/events/72130
Completeness in Life
Steve Poteat |
07/24/2016 |
Are you struggling in your relationships, career, finances, emotions, or even in your spiritual life? Did you know that the Apostle Paul struggled with these very same issues, and left us with ways to overcome these struggles? Do you ever wonder how you can feel complete in this life? Completeness in life comes from completeness in Christ. Listen as guest speaker Steve Poteat explains three practical steps we can apply on our quest for completeness in life. Sermon Notes: http://bible.com/events/68190
On the Mountain (And Off the Mountain) - This or That Series
Jim Campbell |
07/17/2016 |
Going up on the mountaintop is a phrase you may have heard before, but did you know that it actually comes from the Bible? God created mountains specifically, like He created everything else, to proclaim himself and to help us understand who He is. In this last part of our “This or That Series”, listen as Pastor Jim talks about two very important extremes in life: mountains and valleys, and how you can grow closer to God and know He is near no matter which one you are on. Sermon Notes: http://bible.com/events/65163
I Will Build my Church - This or That Series
Jim Campbell |
07/10/2016 |
The Pharisees lived by a philosophy that if their outside looked right, then their inside would follow. But Jesus displayed that’s not how it works. Obedience comes first. Follow me or don’t. It’s a “This or That” situation. Listen as Pastor Jim talks about how to have that obedience, and how God uses it and us to build his church. Sermon Notes: http://bible.com/events/61817
Feeding the Dogs - This or That Series
07/03/2016 |
In this part of our sermon series, “This or That,” guest speaker Adam Draffin focuses on a commonly confusing verse, when a Gentile asked Jesus to heal her daughter, and he responded about “Feeding the Dogs.” Listen as Adam explains the meaning of this verse and how the world puts up barriers, but Christ came to break them down. Sermon Notes: http://bible.com/events/58341
Backwards and Inside Out - This or That Series
Jim Campbell |
06/26/2016 |
Today in the second part of the “This or That Series,” we look at two astounding, freedom-giving truths often done wrong in church about how to honor God and be right with Him. Our hope is that, after looking with us at these verses in Matthew 14, you will have a better understanding of what God has for us, and that you will be a little bit freer in how you go about that and portray Christ to the world. Sermon Notes: http://bible.com/events/55304
Believers or Boycotters - This or That Series
Jim Campbell |
06/19/2016 |
Today we begin our “This or That” Series, where we'll be looking at choices. Jesus’ identity as King forced the people who encountered Him to choose a side.  As the enemies of Jesus grew louder, so the numbers of his followers grew greater, because Jesus’ disciples continued to declare Who He is. Throughout this series, we’ll be confronted with a decision about the identity of Jesus. And as a result, where that choice will lead us all...if He is King, then we must follow Him as King. Today, listen as Pastor Jim explains the differences int he choices of believers and boycotters. Sermon notes: Sermon Notes: http://bible.com/events/51869
Stories about the Kingdom - Storytime with Jesus Series
Jim Campbell |
06/12/2016 |
When you think about a kingdom, most people think of a castle that’s grand and expansive. When Jesus tells these 4 stories we’ll be looking at, he actually uses illustrations that begin as the opposite. Listen as Pastor Jim explains the parables of the mustard seed, yeast used to make dough, treasure hidden in a field, and the pearl of great price, and that what we have to understand is that the things that we can see are probably the least important factor in the equation about what God is asking us to do. Sermon Notes: http://bible.com/events/48351
A Story about Dirt - Storytime with Jesus Series
Jim Campbell |
05/29/2016 |
When Jesus was on earth, he told many parables, which are earthly stories with a heavenly point. He used those to explain different things to us, His followers. In this first part of the series, we look at the first of 3 parables, a story about dirt, or soil, and how it is a good example of what happens when some people hear about the kingdom of God and who Jesus is. Not everyone believes, and not everyone obeys. There are many people who claim to know God, but only if it doesn’t interfere with this one thing. Listen as pastor Jim explains what that is, and that the more you trust and lean into God, the more He will reveal to you. Sermon Notes: http://bible.com/events/41405
Jesus in the House Verified Series
Jim Campbell |
05/22/2016 |
How do we verify that we are with the Lord in how we are living and the choices we make? There are several examples of what NOT to do in the Bible, starting with the Pharisees, and that it’s not through our reputation or asking God for signs. And probably most relevant as an excuse today, we don’t find Jesus by trying to clean up our lives first. When we have Jesus in our lives, HE makes us clean. Listen as Pastor Jim explains that the people who are in Jesus’ house are the people who do the will of the Father, and what that means in a practical way for you today. Sermon Notes: https://www.bible.com/events/37876
Safe to Stand
05/15/2016 |
We've all seen sinkholes on the road, but have you ever thought of them as a metaphor for our culture, or even as what sometimes occurs in our personal lives? It looks good on the surface, but something is slowly eroding the interior, and it can't hold the weight of all that's sitting on top of it. And when you put enough weight down, you're left with a crumbling hole in your life. But God gives us things that are solid to stand on. Listen as Pastor Jim lists what some of those things are and teaches us where it is safe for us to stand and to set our foundation on. Sermon Notes: http://bible.com/events/34272
Children are From Him and For Him
Jim Campbell |
05/08/2016 |
Today is the day each year that we take a moment to thank God for what He has given us in our mothers. I know sometimes the weight of your role in our homes can feel enormous. Whether you are a single mom, a married mom, a divorced mom, empty-nester mom or just a totally exhausted mom at this moment, we want you to feel encouraged with truth today. No matter what you do, in whatever variation/station of the role of Mom that you are in, it is all highly valuable to the Lord and to those around you. Listen as Pastor Jim explains the great responsibility we all have when it comes to the children, and even family and friends who surround us every day, who can learn from the wisdom Christ has given us. Sermon Notes: http://bible.com/events/30955
Where You Can Rest - Verified Series
Bob Lorenzo |
05/01/2016 |
Do you ever feel not just tired, but a weariness that goes deep into your bones? Are you tired of trying so hard to meet everyone’s expectations? God already did it all for you. He wants us just as we are, and he wants us to rest in Him. In this part of our Verified Series, listen as special guest speaker Pastor Bob Lorenzo explains how we can rest in who Jesus is right now, here with us, and in all that he’s done for us, and even our futures. Rest for your soul begins with faith in Jesus. Sermon Notes: http://bible.com/events/26841
Investigating His Identity - Verified Series
Jim Campbell |
04/24/2016 |
We use a lot of phrases about our identity, “I’m going to find myself,” “What’s my purpose in life?” “What should I be doing?” What do you do when you get your identity stolen? Sin stole our identities and we, as Christians, should look back to Christ to find our identity. Identity was important in Jesus’ time as well, and now we still face the issue of verifying Jesus’ identity both as a man, and as God. In this part of our “Verified” Series, listen as Pastor Jim explains what does NOT define our identity, and how we can find what does through three practical truths. Sermon Notes: http://bible.com/events/26841
Amazing Miracles and the Man Who Did Them Pt 2 - Verified Series
Jim Campbell |
04/10/2016 |
All pain, all hurt, all damage, in your life and mine, originally comes from sin. Sometimes the pain and hurt we feel is from the collective effects of sin on our world, and the combined ripple of millions of people making wrong choices everyday. Our world is a convoluted mess of sin and the only answer is Jesus. And people don’t want to believe it, because they think it’s too good to be true, and the stories written about him must be inaccurate. In this second part of our series, we’re talking about verifying who Jesus is and what he can do to change the effects of sin on our lives. Sermon Notes: http://bible.com/events/16642
Amazing Miracles and the Man Who Did Them Pt 1 - Verified Series
Jim Campbell |
04/03/2016 |
So many things are questioned about Jesus. For thousands of years, we've had eye-witness accounts of verified prophecies, the odds of which make it veritably impossible for Him to be anything but who He says He is. In this part of our study through Matthew's account, the writer lays out the case for why Jesus is who He says He is, and as a bonus, we'll look at some of the reasons that the evidence pronounces Jesus as "Verified"! Sermon Notes: http://bible.com/events/12709
I am the Resurrection and the Life
Jim Campbell |
03/27/2016 |
Have you ever felt this way: you can’t put your finger on it, but something is just not right, no matter how “right” something seems. That is the effect of sin and death in our lives. Our sin is a condition that affects every aspect of our lives. But there is a solution. The Resurrection of Jesus is not an event. The Resurrection and the Life is a continuous state that you can live in. Listen as Pastor Jim explains in his special Easter message how the Resurrection is relevant to every moment of our lives, and our continuous salvation, even for those who have trusted Christ as our Savior. Sermon Notes: http://bible.com/events/8340
Two Ways to Live - The Talk Series
Jim Campbell |
03/20/2016 |
"Every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit." That verse may sound like common sense, but it's proof of how we are living as Christians, and whether or not we're truly following God. If we are, others will see the good fruit in the changes in our lives. In this last part of our series on "The Talk We Can't Stop Talking About," pastor Jim compares the story of the wise and foolish men who built their house on sand or rocks, and shows how we can be like the wise man. Sermon Notes: http://bible.com/events/4383
Speck Removal Service - The Talk Series
Jim Campbell |
03/13/2016 |
We’ve all heard someone say the phrase: “Don’t judge me.” It’s used in all types of contexts, from joking to heated debates, and even incorrectly, because the problem is, many people don’t understand what this phrase really means. Was Jesus really saying that we can’t evaluate the actions of someone else, whether they’re right or wrong? In this part of our series about “The Talk We Can’t Stop Talking About,” Pastor Jim explains the most misquoted, misunderstood verse in this whole passage of the book of Matthew. Sermon Notes: http://bible.com/e/2PXr
Treasure, Trust, and Tomorrow - The Talk Series
03/06/2016 |
Did you ever think that how you spend your money says a lot about how much you do (or don’t) trust God? We can easily be pressured into believing that our security is in the size of our savings account, or we worry constantly about how to get out of debt or bills and forget to give back to God. God promised that he knows our needs, and will take care of them. We just need to seek him and his kingdom first. Listen as Pastor Jim explains how for many of us, the problem isn’t the amount of money or possessions we do or don’t have, but what we seek. Sermon Notes: http://m.youversion.com/events/572325
Religion that God Rewards - The Talk Series
Jim Campbell |
02/28/2016 |
The Pharisees were famous for showing off, especially when they were praying or doing anything that God would have rewarded. But because they did things to show off, they missed out on those heavenly rewards. They didn’t understand the concept Matthew teaches in chapter 5: “when you…” do things in secret (praying, giving to those in need, etc.), God will be the one to reward you. Listen as Pastor Jim explains more about what it means to do things in secret (does that mean we have to hide from everyone? What happens if someone sees or finds out?), and how we should pray and do the righteous things God has called us to practice. Sermon Notes: http://m.youversion.com/events/569700
Upping the Ante: What Jesus Expects of Us - The Talk Series
Jim Campbell |
02/21/2016 |
Our society is littered with rules-rules for paying taxes, learning to drive, playing sports. It can all be a little overwhelming, and it was much worse for Jews in Jesus’ time. They had hundreds of laws about everything from what they could eat to how far they were allowed to walk on certain days! When Jesus talked about rules, he made things simpler, and more challenging at the same time by upping the ante on living for God. Listen as Pastor Jim explains what “upping the ante” is really all about, and reveals a promise of what you will become rather than the rules you need to keep. Sermon Notes: http://m.youversion.com/events/567202
All About Love
Jim Campbell |
02/14/2016 |
Our culture has a lot of opinions about love, especially what it should look like. But more important is what the Bible has to say about it. Jesus was the perfect example of what our love for each other should look like. Learn how to follow follow Christ's example and to truly love ALL of the people in your life in this special Valentine's Day message by Pastor Jim Campbell, featuring a special, hilarious song-guessing game. Sermon Notes: http://m.youversion.com/events/564640
Blessed in the Broken Places - The Talk Series
Jim Campbell |
02/07/2016 |
Have you ever read something that impacted you, stuck with you? Maybe a phrase or a quote that drives you. As someone who tries to develop meaningful messages every week, those of us to teach, speak, write and create hope to garner a little piece of someone's mind to effect them for the better. What if what you said became a part of establishing kingdoms, creating historical art, and shaping entire cultures and almost 2000 years after it was said, people were still quoting it regularly, whether they truly believed or understood it at all? That would be the Sermon on the Mount that Jesus gave in Matthew 5-7. All over social media and water coolers and sports practices and government buildings, when the conversation gets past the weather, its not uncommon for something from these two chapters in the Bible to come up. It's simply the greatest talk ever given and there were no speech writers or manuscripts or teleprompters or videos...just a guy who sat down one day and started to talk. Today we are starting with how God uses the broken places and times of our lives to bless us and make us more like him. Listen as Pastor Jim explains how. Sermons Notes: http://m.youversion.com/events/562092
Two Words that Could Change Your Life - Arrival Series
Steve Poteat |
01/31/2016 |
Jesus said to his disciples “Follow Me.” In this last part of our "Arrival: The King is Here" sermon series, guest speaker Steve Poteat discusses what it means to be a disciple of Christ, and how to think and live as He did, so that we too, can be "fishers of men." Sermon Notes: m.youversion.com/events/559217
Tempted in the Desert - Arrival Series

After fasting 40 days and nights in the desert, Jesus was tempted by Satan three different times. Each of these temptations represents the types of temptations that we still face every day. Temptation is inevitable for every one of us, every day that we continue to live on this earth. But Jesus demonstrated the way out, and even how to get back up after failure. Listen as Pastor Jim uses Jesus’ example to demonstrate how we can overcome temptation, even if it has defeated us before in our past. Sermon Notes: http://m.youversion.com/events/557134

You might think it strange to look at the book of Leviticus when thinking about the New Year, but the truth is, the Jewish festivals discussed in this part of the Bible are a great example for us. At each of the festivals, the Jews would look back on the past year, reflect on their choices, and use what they had learned to try to live better in the coming year. In his special New Year's sermon, listen as Adam explains how we can learn from Jewish example to seek God and better understand Him and His will for our lives in the coming year.

The Wise Men are commonly-known characters of the Christmas story, but most people probably have a wrong perception about them. The wise men probably didn’t arrive at the manger, and it was very likely Jesus wasn’t even a tiny baby anymore when they got to him. But the wise men are an extremely important illustration about what our reaction to Jesus should be. In this part of our Christmas 2015 series, Matthew’s Men of Christmas, listen to what the wise men’s gifts can teach us, and how it can change our priorities, decisions, and direction in life.

Missions are an important part of the Christian responsibility. But many of us have never taken part in missions, for a variety of reasons. However, all of us need to be sharing the Gospel of Christ, not just with those around us, but as far out as God calls us to-in our county, our country, or even the world. Because no one can go everywhere, everyone must go somewhere. Sermons Notes: http://m.youversion.com/events/541234
