Welcome to the Truth4Longview Sermon Page!
The sermons listed below are for your edification and encouragement. They have been composed with a few simple rules in mind.
Rule 1: Exegetical – We strive to focus on Holy Scripture. In each sermon, it is our objective to correctly grasp each passage’s original meaning as well as its’ modern application. We practice expository preaching (which means digging into a passage rather than covering a topic) for two primary reasons. First, because of the divine origin of the Scriptures, that is, God is the actual author of the Old and New Testaments (see 2 Timothy 3:16 & 2 Peter 1:20-21). The second reason for expository preaching is due to Jesus’ declaration that every word proceeding forth from the mouth of God is absolutely indispensable to the lives of men (Matthew 4:4). Therefore it is essential that we carefully examine all of Scripture, not just favorite portions of it (Acts 20:27). This is what makes a sermon biblical rather than just an opinion.
Rule 2: Contextual – Our approach to preaching leads us to carefully examine the context of every Scripture passage before writing a sermon. We keep in mind who is writing to who, what situation they were all in during that time, and why the letter was written. This helps to guard against misinterpreting a biblical text.
Rule 3: Literal – We interpret the Bible literally with the exception of where the genre of writing or literary technique dictates otherwise.
Rule 4: Living – We believe the Word of God is alive, with the life and power of God (Hebrews 4:12). All Scripture has its origin in God (2 Timothy 3:16). God’s Word is truth, it is nothing but absolute truth (John 17:17). We don’t do this simply as a profession or tradition, but because what we find in Scripture is the truth of reality. A sermon is nothing more than a bunch of words, unless it has the truth and Spirit of God in it!
(Our online sermons are always free…what a deal!!)
Ezekiel 1 – We recently did a sermon series through this amazing book. Ezekiel speaks volumes to the Bible Belt culture here in Longview and is more relevant to today’s professing believers than many books published just this year! Listen now to the first part of this series to see what message our Lord delivered thru the pen of Ezekiel. Click HERE now to listen or download.
Peter’s First Sermon – New Life’s own Brother James is the speaker as this sermon takes a deep look into Acts 2:36-41. Peter’s bold and uncompromising message shocked and convicted the people of Israel, and does the same to us today when compared to common gospel messages. Listentoday as we examine the first sermon of one of the most famous preachers of all… Peter! Click HERE to listen or download now.
Judgment Day – With so much debate on exactly what will happen on THE day (with many modern teachers even denying there is such day) wouldn’t it be wise to carefully inspect the teachings of Jesus Christ on the issue? This ChurchSalt sermon takes a close look at Matthew 25:31-46 in an effort to learn exactly what that great day will be like, and how judgment will be made. When examined carefully, there is some material here that will surprise many people! It is so easy to skim over this and walk away thinking that this passage is about doing good and charitable works, when it really isn’t about that at all! Please listen to this teaching carefully and prayerfully. Click HERE to listen or download now.
The Preacher’s Wife - Charo Washer, wife of Preacher & evangelist Paul Washer gives her testimony. After living a christian life and living as a missionary, she came to the realization that she herself was NOT a Christian. While listening to her husband Paul preach on examining your faith to see if it is real, Charo realizes her lost condition and finally comes to true salvation. Terrific testimony!!

The Impossible Psalm – Our Lord told us in Luke 24 that He came to fulfill what was spoken in the law of Moses, the Prophets, and the Psalms… and without Christ’s finished work on the Cross Psalm 32:1-7 is completely impossible! This can be seen when it is examined with the knowledge that our God is not only loving, but also just. It is so easy to read the Bible with religious lenses on, and breeze right over comforting Psalms like this one without ever thinking about what they are really saying. This ChurchSalt sermon takes a deep look at Psalm 32 and comes to the conclusion that the Psalm is teaching the impossible. But, of course, with Christ all things are possible.
