Salvation Sola Gratiae (Eph. 2.8-9)

Speaker: Derrick Leitão
Series: Mark
Sermon Info:
Humans are prideful people. We want to take credit for all of our accomplishments and never recognize them as gifts from God. This is how we can view our own salvation as well. We must be reminded every day that salvation is by grace and not works.

Sola Scriptura for the Christian Life (2 Peter 1.16-21)

Speaker: Derrick Leitão
Series: Mark
Sermon Info:
Apologetics is the practice of defending the faith from false teaching. This is what Peter is practicing here as he defends the identity of the Son of God, the Holy Scriptures as the word of God and seeks to establish the Christian’s life in that Holy word. The Holy Bible is the word of God and a lamp to guide us in this dark world. Are you paying attention to it?

The Mercy of the Lord (Mark 5.1-20)

Speaker: Derrick Leitão
Series: Mark
Sermon Info:
Demon-possession can become a taboo. Something that is spoken of in front of a camp-fire for the thrills of the story. But when we encounter demon-possession in the New Testament, the stories are never disconnected from the revelation of our Lord. For he is Lord over all, including the demons, and it reveals that his mercy reigns over the oppressed.
