State of the Heart Pt. 2 Keep It Beating

The Bible talks alot about our “heart.” But, the heart it’s talking about isn’t the muscle in the middle of our chest that pumps blood. Rather, it’s talking about that control center in us that desires and decides, that’s disappointed or delighted. Listen as Pastor Gary Craft explains what having a hard heart really is and how to guard against it, so that we can experience the full life that Jesus died to give us.

Follow Up to Slip Sliding Away

Slip Sliding Away

Salvation is a process that begins with justification, progresses to sanctification, and then leads to glorification. You see, God loves us so much that He wants to share Himself with us in ever-increasing measure. Just as this process draws us closer to God, falling away from God is a gradual process that we have to guard ourselves against. Listen as Pastor Gary Craft explains.

Stand In Awe

Have you ever witnessed the mighty wonder of God’s hands? When we are awestruck by God’s creation, we shouldn’t be drawn to the creation, but rather the Creator. Knowing that our God is not only all-powerful, but that He loves us, brings us to a point of longing for Him. He truly cares and is able to affect our circumstances. Listen as Pastor Gary Craft explains that we should truly be in awe of our God!

What Does it Mean To Be An Epic Man?

Follow Up to “Under the Influence of the Holy Spirit”

Live Q&A with Pastor Gary Craft about Sunday’s Message.

 

Under the Influence of the Holy Spirit

Being under His influence is where we empty our cups and allow him to fill us completely. Sometimes it’s painful to cooperate with Him to get to that level. But, it’s so worth it. Your Impossible Starts Here!

 

Your Impossible Starts Here Follow Up

Pastor Gary gives a further explanation of the concepts from Sunday’s Message, “Your Impossible Starts Here.”


Your Impossible Starts Here

With God, nothing is impossible. If we rely on Him and align ourselves with His purpose, we can truly experience His fullness. One way of doing this is by being a church of prayer! Listen as Pastor Gary Craft shares these life-changing truths.

 

You Can Make A Difference

Missions Sunday

Here at Lake City, we believe in the Great Commission – going unto all the world to preach the Gospel. One of the ways we do that here is by giving to missions. There are a number of missionaries that we support both within our country and across the world. Philip Cameron, founder of The Oprhans Hands shares with us the many things that he has encountered as a missionary. For more info about his ministry, please click HERE.

 

Growing in Faith Follow Up

Pastor Gary gives a further explanation of the concepts from Sunday’s Message, “Growing in Faith.”

 

Growing in Faith

What does it truly mean to grow in faith? It entails a lot of things that you may not have thought about. Pastor Gary explains that a healthy believer is always growing, and maturing enough to bear fruit. Then, the pruning happens… ouch!!! But, it’s the pruning that causes us to bear more fruit. Listen as he dives into this topic.

The Fellow-Ship Follow Up

Pastor Gary Craft follows up on The Fellow-Ship with Facebook Live viewers. It’s also an opportunity for him to further his teaching from Sunday and answer questions about it. Here is the audio from the FB Live.

The Fellow-Ship

As believers in Christ, we are all going to the same place, on the same mission 0 much like an aircraft carrier. The fellow ship is a love boat, because it provides demonstrations of God’s love. It is a lifeboat, because it provides shoulders to lean on and ears to listen. And, the fellow ship is an aircraft carrier, because it provides partners to launch us. Listen as Pastor Gary Craft explains.

 

Jesus, Alive

Through Jesus death, burial and resurrection, we have the hope of an abundant life – not just here on the earth, but even after we are done here. Listen as Pastor Gary Craft delivers this life-changing Easter message.

 

 

 The Praise Parade

Do we really know how to celebrate? What if what we received after years of waiting wasn’t packaged and delivered just like we wanted it? Would we tuly celebrate it then? Let Pastor Gary Craft expound on this idea in this message. If you’d like to contact us, please reach us by phone or email. You can find that info at the bottom of the page.

 

Heart Conditioning

Even when Christ was on the Earth, many religious leaders of the day, and even the ones in the crowd who were receiving miracles from Christ’s hands, didn’t recognize who Christ really was – the Son of God in human form. He didn’t come packaged like they thought He would be, so they missed the gravity of His appearance & their visitation. Listen as Pastor Gary Craft explains that  in order to realize the FULLNESS OF CHRIST, we must keep our hearts conditioned to be sensitive to the voice and works of God, through prayer.

 

 

Following Jesus

Did you know that you can’t fully follow Jesus from a distance? Yes, it has its risks, but the benefits are worth them all. Let Pastor Gary Craft explain.

 

 

 

Don’t Lose Your Why

Jesus is our “why”- our root motivation for every thing we do. Fruit comes from the root- when we connect to Jesus through relationship, we produce fruit. But Jesus has to be an all-consuming motivation, our “why”; not what he does for us but what He is.

Dead Men Talking

Chances are that you have regrets in your life from missed opportunities in your past. But, did you know that as Christians, we have been called to live with no regrets. Listen as Youth Pastor Seth Henegar shares that you might have regrets, but each day is a clean slate.

The Image of God – A Sacred Trust

In this message by Pastor Gary Craft, he points out what the Bible has to say about life, and what it really means to be made in the image of God.

 

Moms, Pops & Spiritual Orphans

You know, the great commission doesn’t say to go unto all the world and make converts. It says to go unto all the world and make disciples. You can look at this as spiritual parenting. It is imperative that we share our faith with others and help them grow in the faith. Listen as Pastor Gary Craft explains.

 

Fire on the Altar

It seems that the gap between generations has left a spiritual void. Watch as Pastor Gary Craft and his son, Nate Craft explain that there is so much to be gained and so much yet to be done.

 

Leaving a Legacy

Here at Lake City, we recognize that our family members that are 65 and older helped make what we have today possible. They developed the work ethic, tenacity and stick-to-itiveness that made America a great nation. We need that generation (who we are calling the “Great Generation,”) to build a bridge to the younger generation (who we are calling the “Google Generation.”) to share their knowledge and wisdom with them. There is so much to be learned and understood from the experience that the Great Generation possesses. Listen as Pastor Gary Craft, and Youth Pastor Seth Henegar explain.

 

The Voice

It is imperative that we listen to the voice of the Holy Spirit. Listen, as Pastor Gary Craft dives into this topic.

Unload, Reload, Focus

Will the Real Santa Claus Please Stand Up?

What Am I Hungering For
