VIDEO: Moments that Matter – Why Did Tongues of Fire Touch the Apostles?

The events of that first Day of Pentecost after Jesus’ resurrection were a unique, once in all of history occurrence. Many Christian churches today still believe in the gift of speaking in tongues, but with dramatic differences. Modern tongues are spoken with unintelligible sounds as many believe that they are speaking a “prayer language” to God. But are they?

What Can We Learn From Peter? (Part III)

On this past May 20th we embarked on a journey through the Apostle Peter’s life and on June 10th, we continued that journey. Our ending point was his conversation with our Lord after Jesus’ resurrection – the conversation that let Peter know that Jesus was counting on him as a lynch pin of what would become Christianity, in spite of Peter’s shortcomings. Today, we look at some of Peter’s experiences that followed, from Pentecost to the conversion of the first Gentile to the writing of Peter’s epistles. Stay with us as we look at how God’s Spirit influenced Peter in his mistakes, his impetuousness and his courage.

What Can We Learn From Peter? (Part II)

A few weeks ago on May 20th, we discussed Part 1 of our conversation about the Apostle Peter. We covered his life from his being introduced in the Scriptures as a typical fisherman from Galilee, up to his proclamation that Jesus was the Messiah and his angst at Jesus saying that he, Jesus, would have to die. These three things typify the life of Peter: a regular guy of no singular background, impetuous – willing to speak up when others would not, and often getting into some kind of trouble for things he said or did. Stay with us as we look further into this utterly fascinating life of a man who would become one of Christianity's greatest leaders.
