How God Anointed Jesus of Nazareth   Pastor John DiZazzo   |  May 6, 2018 pm  |  43:38 min:sec  |  Download
Probably what's needed more than anything in the church today is the power and anointing of God.  Preaching of the Word is essential, and knowledge of the Bible is critical.  But without the power of God being manifested, no true conversions, salvations, healings, victories over sin, or deliverances from demon possession and oppression take place.


The Gifts of the Spirit - Part 2   Pastor John DiZazzo   |  April 29, 2018 pm  |  63:42 min:sec  |  Download
This message continues the sermon started in the morning and delves into each of the nine gifts of the Spirit.


The Gifts of the Spirit - Part 1   Pastor John DiZazzo   |  April 29, 2018 am  |  52:08 min:sec  |  Download
This introductory lesson on the nine gifts of the Spirit, as taught in I Corinthians 12, lays a much-needed foundation for a solid scriptural understanding of the gifts of the Spirit.  Without this foundation, one can easily be led into error.


Lessons from II Chronicles Twenty   Pastor John DiZazzo   |  April 22, 2018  |  48:33 min:sec  |  Download
We may want life to be trouble-free and easy, but in reality, it's not that way.  Troubles, tests and trials come, often unexpectedly.  What should your response be?  Learn a lesson from King Jehoshaphat's response that brought God on the scene and, ultimately, a victory over the sudden and overwhelming opposition he faced.


God's Desire for Your Prayer   Pastor John DiZazzo   |  April 15, 2018  |  43:59 min:sec  |  Download
A look at the desire from God's perspective that you would spend time with Him in His presence.


The Lord Is Able to Give Thee Much More Than This   Shawn Doggett   |  April 8, 2018 p.m.  |  29:45 min:sec  |  Download

The Faith of Bartimaeus    Pastor John DiZazzo  |  April 1,, 2018  |  44:55 min:sec  |  Download
Bartimaeus' faith touched Jesus and brought him a miraculous healing.  The same faith can be in you to bring the miracles you need.


Are You a Wimp or a Warrior?   Charles Mitchell  |  March 25, 2018  |  48:36 min:sec  |  Download
One definition of "wimp" is "to fail to do or complete something due to fear or lack of confidence."  Does that describe you in some area God has called you to walk in?  Or are you a warrior who has been prepared by God to face your giants, stand in the battles, and go through by His grace?


Great Faith   Pastor John DiZazzo  |  March 18,, 2018  |  48:15 min:sec  |  Download  |  Notes
What does great faith that moves the hand of God look like?  Jesus commended the Syrophenician woman in Matthew chapter 15 for having great faith, and by her faith she received the much-needed miracle she was seeking.  Learn from three simple things this woman did so that you, too, can have great faith that moves the hand of God.


You Can Make It   Pastor John DiZazzo  |  March 11, 2018  |  60:10 min:sec  |  Download  |  Notes
Regardless of your background, intellect, degree of will power, or any other thing, God is able to make you to stand—stand in that wherein He has already brought you, and stand in those things wherein you yet need victory.  This balanced sermon lifts up God's ability and the finished work of Christ on the cross with the conditions you must meet for God's power and victory to become a reality in your life.


Only Believe   Pastor John DiZazzo  |  March 4, 2018  |  49:00 min:sec  |  Download
When tragedy strikes, or a giant in your life you've never conquered—be it spiritual, emotional, financial or otherwise—raises its ugly head again, it's easy to become fearful and lose heart.  But Jesus is in control and has a simply remedy if you will only take a hold of it.


Such Were Some of You   Pastor John DiZazzo  |  February 25, 2018  |  64:14 min:sec  |  Download  |  Notes
The gospel is all about being changed from who you were to becoming a new person in Christ;.  The life of sin is to be repented of, and a new life of righteousness and holy living is to take its place by the power and grace of God.  Unfortunately, many people are deceiving themselves into believing they can continue in a life of sin and still make it into heaven.  This sermon focuses primarily on sins of a sexual nature, which are rampant today not only in the world, but also in the church.


Run for Safety   Pastor John DiZazzo  |  February 18, 2018 p.m.  |  52:39 min:sec  |  Download  |  Notes
Proverbs 18:10 says, The name of the Lord is a strong tower: the righteous runs into it and is safe.  Finding safety in the name of the Lord is more than just knowing what His name is, or praying in His name, or calling on His name.  When you truly know the name of the Lord, then by faith you will run into it and find safety, victory and whatever answers you need.


Press Through the Press   Evangelist Larry Landress  |  February 18, 2018 a.m.  |  32:40 min:sec  |  Download
In this pressure cooker world there's all sorts of pressure: spiritual pressure, emotional pressure, financial pressure . . .  God's Word would encourage you to press through whatever is pressing against you, and to reach for Jesus until you touch Him and He touches you.  


Giving God the Glory That's Due His Name   Pastor John DiZazzo  |  February 4, 2018  |  46:38 min:sec  |  Download
It's easy to fall into the trap of asking, receiving ... asking, receiving ... asking, receiving ... and never taking the time to thank God from your heart for what He's done and to give Him the glory for who He is.  With the many tasks on your plate and the tests and trials you face, it's easy to consider God unknowingly as simply Someone who helps you get through everything successfully.  That mindset, however, causes you to miss out on the best part of a relationship with your heavenly Father.


Should Christians Consume Alcoholic Beverages? - Part 2   Pastor John DiZazzo  |  January 28, 2018  |  82:17 min:sec  |  Download  |  Notes
This is part two of a heart-searching sermon on a very relevant subject for today's church and Christian.  For your study and reference, Pastor John's sermon notes are provided above.  You may also want to read two other documents, mentioned by Pastor John in his sermon. The first is the Assemblies of God position paper Abstinence from Alcohol, and the second is a news article on the "pub church."


(Regarding the AOG position paper, Pastor John makes this comment: "I approve of virtually all that is stated in this article with only one major objection that is not directly related to the article itself: I do not at all approve of quoting from The Message as though that is an accurate translation of God’s Word. The Message is not a Bible translation; it is called a paraphrase. It is actually one man’s commentary, and a very poor, inaccurate one which corrupts the Word of God. I do not advocate its use under any circumstance.  For some simple, accurate info on The Message, read the article Why is the Message (Bible) not safe?")


Should Christians Consume Alcoholic Beverages? - Part 1   Pastor John DiZazzo  |  January 21, 2018  |  63:19 min:sec  |  Download  |  Notes
In recent years, an increasing number of believers are approving alcohol consumption by Christians as long as they don't become intoxicated.  Many pastors also accept it and are even encouraging their congregants to frequent bars so they can reach people for Christ.  How does God looks at it?  This is part one of a sermon that tackles this controversial topic by carefully examining Old Testament and New Testament Scriptures.


Building the House   Pastor John DiZazzo  |  January 14, 2018  |  51:04 min:sec  |  Download  |  Notes
The house of the Lord under the New Covenant refers to the church and to the individual lives of believers, whose bodies are the temple of Holy Spirit.  This sermon exhorts you to focus on building your life as a holy place for God to dwell.  This will naturally result in building the church of Jesus Christ.


A Great Move of God   Pastor John DiZazzo  |  January 7, 2018  |  49:58 min:sec  |  Download  |  Notes
The church of Jesus Christ today needs a great move of God, as was experienced by the early church and was recorded in the Book of Acts.  This sermon, based on Acts chapter 4, examines what the signs of a great move of God are and what precedes a great move of God.
