Chris Wall • Revelation 3:1-6 ESV First Baptist Owasso is a church committed to community. We are living life together walking through the ups and downs of life. As we build a church living in AUTHENTIC BIBLICAL COMMUNITY, we get close enough to one another to confront, serve, and face adversity side by side. Sardis was a church that was on the ver…
 
Chris Wall • Revelation 2:18-29 ESV Our church works diligently to understand and live by the Word of God in every area of our lives. Following Jesus is not just a part of our lives. Faith drives everything we do. The church at Thyatira wanted to love everyone but made the mistake of drifting away from truth. To avoid that trap, one of our core val…
 
Chris Wall • Revelation 2:1-7 ESV Our church has been planted in Owasso and Tulsa to "Love All people to Christ, equipping them on their journey with God and one another." As we begin 2022, we are going to take a look at four churches in Revelation processing the Core Values of our church. Ephesus had the right doctrine, but left their love of Chri…
 
Chris Wall • Matthew 2:1-12 ESV The third message in this series will focus on the simultaneously call to a small group of wise men. This group had studied ancient revelations and natural processes that revealed the arrival of the Savior. These men were so certain of God’s plan, they traveled to Bethlehem bringing gifts for the purpose of bowing in…
 
Misael Gonzalez • Luke 2:8-20 NIV The Christmas Promise is about God’s perfect timing to bring exactly what humanity needed, exactly when they needed it. God could have given us an inside look to Joseph or Mary’s reaction to Jesus’ birth. Instead, He gave us an inside look of how the promise was revealed to shepherds who were unaware of what was ha…
 
Chris Wall • Isaiah 9:6-7 ESV Our church and community are still in the throes of navigating unusual tensions and growing uncertainty. With this in mind, the simple prayer – “Lord Remind Me” of Christmas is incredibly powerful. We are living through a time when people are searching for lasting hope. The message of Christmas is the exact opposite of…
 
Chris Wall • Nehemiah 13 ESV All through history, followers of Christ have experienced the consistent temptation to drift from the Lord. Every time this drift begins, God is faithful to get in our way. Over and over again, we are learning to respond quickly and gratefully to confrontation. It is best to respond with humility and repentance when God…
 
Chris Wall • Nehemiah 11-12 ESV God is at work in our church and in our world right now. As God works, He fully intends to accomplish His work through normal people like you and me. It is surprising, but God chose to start the process of working in the world through building churches. Ever church that God starts is made up of seemingly insignifican…
 
Chris Wall • Nehemiah 10 All through history, God has established, maintained, and sustained a Covenant with His people. A covenant is a divinely imposed legal agreement between God and man that stipulates the conditions of the relationship. In the Old Testament, people kept the laws of Moses in order to stay in a right relationship with God. After…
 
Chris Wall • Nehemiah 9 ESV The posture of repentance in Chapter 9 of Nehemiah is a big shift from the celebration that took place in the feast of Booths. It was right to celebrate forgiveness and deliverance, now it is important to continue to stay close to the Lord moving forward. Nehemiah 9 helps us see the real anatomy of repentance. Repentance…
 
Chris Wall • Nehemiah 8 ESV During the time of Nehemiah, God's people CAME TOGETHER to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem in 52 days. In just over two months, this group accomplished more than many communities of faith accomplish in a lifetime. How did they do it? The answer is found in the historic call of God's people: They CAME TOGETHER. This “next …
 
Chris Wall • Nehemiah 6-7 In our personal lives and our church, we need to recognize that we will never "Arrive". On this side of eternity, there will be more to learn about the Lord. There will be more prayers to pray. There will be more people to reach, more work to do, needs to meet, and individuals to love. We see in Nehemiah 6–7 that though th…
 
Chris Wall • Nehemiah 5 ESV Nehemiah Chapter 5 is quite surprising when you put this passage into context. God's people had just banded together to rebuild the Walls of Jerusalem in under two months cooperating in masterful ways. Next, a new threat arises coming against the people of God and it comes from within. We see up close and personal there …
 
Chris Wall • Nehemiah 1-2 ESV God is faithful to advance His Kingdom in the world and invites us to join Him in the process. It is important to pay close attention to the pattern we see in both Ezra and Nehemiah. Ezra began with the re-building of the temple and Nehemiah describes the rebuilding of the city. This makes sense because getting right w…
 
Chris Wall • Ezra 9-10 Repentance must become our loudest praise. Ezra 9-10 is a difficult passage that must not just be casually read with a 2021 mentality. The ending of Ezra paints one of the most beautiful pictures of repentance. The sad truth is that every one of God's people will rebel against the Lord at some point. When rebellion takes plac…
 
Chris Wall • Ezra 8 Seeking the Lord helps us recognize how God’s hand moves for our good. When God’s people repent, it is remarkable to see how God brings His blessing. In this passage, you see God’s people coming with a heart to seek the Lord. There is fasting. There is focus. This is an example for us regarding how to live. Living our lives focu…
 
Chris Wall • Ezra 7 This passage points to the revival of God’s promises. Boy, do we need a revival regarding the promises of God. Coming back to the Scriptures and standing on them with passion, purpose, grace, love, and faithfulness is a key as we move into a changing culture. Many in our church have a strong desire to impact this world for Chris…
 
Steve Dighton • Ezra 4:1-6 ESV It was James who reminded us to count it joy when tough times come. JOY??? It is true that the most difficult circumstances produce some of the greatest and most memorable moments with the Lord. It is right to stay close to the Lord even when circumstances seem to be falling apart. God had moved so powerfully and had …
 
Chris Wall • Ezra 1-2 ESV As followers of Christ, we do not need to be too worried about the political developments unfolding in front of our eyes. We are not saying voting is pointless. We are saying that Proverbs 21:1 has real merit. “A king’s heart is like streams of water in the Lord’s hand: He directs it wherever He chooses.” Of course, we pra…
 
Chris Wall • 1 Corinthians 13:1-6 ESV All of us want to have integrity. We struggle with ourselves when we don't show it. Unfortunately, too many times there is a gap between what we want to do and what we actually do. In this message, let’s zero in on 1 Corinthians 13:6. It says, "Love does not rejoice in evil but rejoices with the truth". Shine a…
 
Chris Wall • 1 Corinthians 13:1-6 ESV It's a fact of life that people hurt each other. Either intentionally or unintentionally we hurt each other. You're going to hurt people; they're going to hurt you. How we handle that hurt will is going to determine some of our health and happiness in life. If we don't respond correctly to hurt, it turns into r…
 
Chris Wall • 1 Corinthians 13:1-5 ESV This message keys in on a part of this passage, 1 Corinthians 13:5, which says "Love is not easily angered." Let’s pay attention to the fact that it doesn't say 'love never gets angry' because there are sometimes that love does get angry. Sometimes the loving thing to do is to get angry. It says that "Love is n…
 
Misael Gonzalez • 1 Corinthians 13:4 Have you ever tried to love someone by being jealous of them? When is the last time you felt loved by someone because they never stopped talking about their muscles, trophies, or super car? You see, we must remember Who love is in a world that has distorted what love is. Love is not an attribute of who God is, G…
 
Chris Wall • 1 Corinthians 13:1-4a ESV Have you ever met someone who naturally assumes the worst? That person will usually see other people negatively. That person will usually be quick tempered because they assume the worse. That person will usually be basically a judgmental person and will often fall short on both patience and kindness. The truth…
 
Chris Wall • 1 Corinthians 13:1-8 This first message sets the stage for the entire series. From the very beginning, let’s get to the heart of the matter. Love isn’t a feeling. Love is a decision to do something that reflects the character of God toward someone else even when they don’t deserve it. It is a decision to reflect the character toward Go…
 
Chris Wall • 1 Corinthians 15:42-58 It is good for us to take the time to process how mankind was created in the image of God. This realization produces in us a profound sense of dignity in life. Even though the image of God is currently distorted because of sin, the journey of being transformed into God’s image moves us to respect the image bearer…
 
Chris Wall • Colossians 3:9-11 When redemption takes place in the life of a believer, God begins the life-long process of progressively recovering more of His image. The amazing promise of the New Testament is the shift of moving from being like Adam to becoming more like Christ. The full measure of our creation in the image of God is not complete …
 
Chris Wall • Chris Wall • James 2:1-13 Though there are many relevant examples to use when articulating the impact of the fall, the sin of partiality is a pertinent focus for today. Of course, it is normal to question whether man can be like God after the fall, but Scripture confirms that even though man is sinful, there is still enough likeness to…
 
Chris Wall • Genesis 1:26-28 Man, out of all the creatures God made, can claim to be made in God’s image. As stated earlier, the fact that man is in the image of God means that man is like God and represents God. Of course, the Hebrew of Genesis 1:26-27 refers to something that is similar and not identical. Man in many ways represents God. The Scri…
 
Misael Gonzalez • Colossians 3:22-4:1 Do you think that God only works from 8am to 5pm? Maybe you think He only works on the weekends? In reality, God is always at work in us, through us, and beyond us no matter where we find ourselves. When we understand more of who God is and how He made us to worship Him, we will know that even our jobs can be l…
 
Chris Wall • Colossians 3:18-21 Faith in Christ does not only change individual lives; it changes entire families. We now live in a day when the homes of our church members really do not look much differently than the homes of the lost. In this message, we need to paint a biblical picture of the home. God intended the Christian home to be a shelter…
 
Chris Wall • Colossians 3:12-17 The people of God ought to be a clearly recognizable group in the world. We are not recognized as God’s people because of our political party, doctrinal stances, or our social media posts. The evidence we are the people of God is in our lifestyle. In the last message, we saw what should be put off in our lives and in…
 
Chris Wall • Colossians 3:1-11 The final two chapters of Colossians, Paul gets really practical in applying the doctrine of the preeminence of Christ. As Christians, it is important not to just know the truth, but to actually live the truth. In fact, I would argue if there is not an inward heart change and desire to live out faith in Christ, close …
 
Chris Wall • Acts 1:4-11 The resurrection of Christ changed the world. The resurrection of Christ changed our world. However, when you think about those historical events that took place in the First Century, it is puzzling that God's plan from the beginning was for Jesus to bodily leave the earth. At first glance, it seems like a strange plan. In …
 
Chris Wall • John 21:1-19 Peter and the disciples had encountered the resurrection of Christ. We know that they had gone to the Sea of Galilee because Jesus told them he would meet them there. We don’t know why Peter decided to go fishing. Some claim he was just passing the time. Some claim he was just trying to earn a little cash. But most believe…
 
Misael Gonzalez • Acts 9:1-19 Have you ever been so mad that you acted out of hate? Saul, the man in this portion of Scripture, was blinded by HATE towards God, yet encountered the LOVE of God. This murderer found real forgiveness and was transformed into a missionary by the grace and power of Jesus Christ Himself. If anything, Saul teaches us that…
 
Chris Wall • Matthew 27:62 - 28:15 Seconds after Jesus proclaimed from the cross, “It is Finished”, remarkable things took place. Immediately there was an earthquake. The sky grew dark. In the temple, the curtain was torn from top to bottom. Dead people came out of their tombs and went to see their friends. This was not a normal day. It was not a n…
 
Chris Wall • Mark 10:32-45 In Mark 10, Jesus is boldly and bravely on His way to Calvary. Think of the weight of the moment. Jesus is confronting the reality of becoming sin for all humanity. Holy God, becoming sin. It is a statement that comes off of our lips but the magnitude of it is difficult to comprehend. In all honesty, as human beings, ther…
 
Chris Wall •. Matthew 12:38-42 People often want to see signs from God. The request for signs give evidence to unbelief. In Matthew 12, the teachers of the Law came to Jesus, hoping he would show them a few tricks. They wanted Him to prove that He was the Messiah. Seriously, what more proof did they need? If they were real students of the Bible, th…
 
Chad Balthrop • Colossians 2:18-23 We live in a generation "that can't even." We're told to "live our truth." Whatever choice you make, your next judgmental critic is only one click away. With relentless individualism, we let no one tell us how to live. Yet so many people feel empty. Lost. Alone. All too often, the desire to "let no one" influence …
