  • Who, is the Holy Spirit | Pastor Adam Smallcombe |

    01/11/2021 Duração: 46min

    Whether you refer to the Spirit of God as the Holy Spirit or the Holy Ghost, we need to begin with approaching the Holy Spirit as a person. The Bible uses different images to describe the nature of the Holy Spirit that indicate various dynamics — In the baptism of Jesus, the Holy Spirit descended “like a dove.” In Acts 2 the disciples encountered the Holy Spirit like “a mighty rushing wind” and descended upon them “as tongues of fire.” While these are mere descriptors attributed to the Holy Spirit, it’s important we understand that the Holy Spirit is a ‘WHO’, not a “WHAT.”In this first installment of the Temple series, Lead Pastor Adam Smallcombe begins to unpack the person of the Holy Spirit and how we as believers are carriers of the Holy Spirit. We are not only carriers of the Spirit but by baptism of the Holy Spirit, we are activated in the full power of God.

  • Selected For Service | Pastor Michelle Stewart | VIVE Church

    25/10/2021 Duração: 40min

    When it comes to our assignment here on earth, how many of us are operating like we are the last round pick or not picked at all? What are the qualifications that make somebody a candidate to be selected?You need to stop second guessing you are selected because you are used to being rejected. Not only are you pre-selected or pre-chosen, you are called for a purpose. Until you realize how called you are, you won’t do small things with excellence. When you were selected onto team Christian - you didn’t sign up to have followers, you didn’t even sign up just to be a follower, you signed up but to MAKE followers. This is your win; to bear fruit - fruit that will last. The enemy doesn’t care how many days you live so long as you don’t live in the days you have. Pastor Michelle closes the series ‘No Time To Die’ with a commissioning ceremony - activating you in the call God has for you, in a message titled ‘Selected For Service’.

  • Dead But Not Done | Pastor Vance Roush | VIVE Church

    18/10/2021 Duração: 37min

    Do you treat Sundays as your “supercharger”? Do you expect to be filled back up to full on Sundays after being depleted during the week?Sunday was not meant to be a supercharger when salvation already was. We have the power of the Holy Spirit to transform anything and everything. Continuing in the series ‘No Time To Die’, Pastor Vance Roush explores this and much more with a sermon titled ‘Dead But Not Done’. Anything that keeps you separate, stuck, locked up in fear is not from the spirit of God. The Holy Spirit wants to redeem language and culture.

It's often more effective to tell the story of what God has done in your life than a theological explanation of Him. Share your experience with the grace of God so that others can share in that experience as well.

    What is the Church to you?  What isn't the Church to you? Does your view of the Church cause you to be critical? Tune in as Pastor Adam dives into the scripture to unpack these questions with a timely message titled, ‘Not Your Average Church’. The church is not powerless and is the only eternal element on earth. Being planted in the church always follows being connected to Christ. You cannot treat what is sacred as common.

  • Scrappy Faith | Pastor Adam Smallcombe | VIVE Church

    02/08/2021 Duração: 38min

    Are you a faith talker or a faith walker? Sometimes you speak faith but you don’t have the practical application behind it. Pastor Adam Smallcombe continues the vision series, ‘Spare No Expense’, with a powerful message, ’Scrappy Faith’. When you resign yourself to fate instead of having a functional faith you are removing yourself from any responsibility. Faith is an invitation to partner with God. Faith employs the natural and the supernatural. God can do a lot with a little, but he cannot multiply nothing. When you have something that you consider nothing, you eliminate the supernatural element of God. Scrappy faith is not elegant, it requires your involvement. The only thing you cannot afford to do is disqualify yourself.
