Please click on the below links to listen to Pastor Jin’s previous sermons.

[Pastor Jin makes extensive use of PowerPoint slides during his preaching – maps, images, photos, etc. which may not translate well when simply listening to the message.]

You can also read some of his Bible Study thoughts.

07.18.21 “Adopted into God’s Family” (Ephesians 1:1-6) (24 min). Worship in Zoom: Video & Audio. After a three month sabbatical, Pastor Jin returns with insight into the similarity and difference between the Old Testament and New Testament and what that teaches about God and us.

04.04.21 Easter Sunday “Because He Lives” (Matthew 28:8-20) (12 min). Worship in Zoom: Video & Audio. Our choir sings, “Because He Lives.” Easter Sunday offered us another exciting gift after the greatest gift of salvation. Christ is alive and will be with us always!

04.02.21 Good Friday “King of Kings” (Philippians 2:5-11) (14 min). Worship in Zoom: Video & Audio. Our choir sings, “Via Dolorosa” and “Were You There?” The title of King follows Jesus to the cross. What does this mean for us?

03.28.21 Palm Sunday “Waving Palms to the King!” (Luke 19:35-41) (20 min). Worship in Zoom: Video & Audio. Our choir sings, “Hosanna!” What does Palm Sunday teach us about Jesus’ identity leading up to the cross? Jesus is the Savior King!

3.21.21 “Life Lessons: Christ’s Return” (Matthew 25:14-23) (26 min). Worship in Zoom: Video & Audio. Our choir sings, “Take My Life and Let It Be.” The Parable of Talents teaches us that Jesus will return. And that’s a great thing in light of the messiness of this world and our society.

3.14.21 “Life Lessons: Choosing Right Master (Luke 16:13-15) (23 min). Worship in Zoom: Video & Audio. Our choir sings, “The Only Name.” To people who loved money, Jesus commands us to choose God to be lord over our lives. So how do we go about doing this?

3.7.21 “Life Lessons: Forgiveness” (Matthew 18:21-35) (17 min). Worship in Zoom: Video & Audio. Our choir sings, “Worthy Is the Lamb.” It’s not easy to forgive, but Jesus teaches us we must have the spirit of forgiveness. And his reason is different from that of the world.

2.28.21 Guest Speaker: Ed Park. Worship in Zoom: Video & Audio. Our choir sings, “Give Me Jesus.”

2.21.21 “Life Lessons: Prodigal Son” (Luke 15:11-24) (22 min). Worship in Zoom: Video & Audio. Our choir sings, “What Kind of Love is This?” Our Bible is God’s love letter to us and the parable of the Prodigal Son is another illustration of that.

2.14.21 “The Greatest Gift: True Love (Mark 8:31-38) (26 min). Worship in Zoom: Video & Audio. Our choir sings, “Love One Another.” What does it mean to “carry your cross and follow me?” Didn’t Jesus take away our cross by dying on his cross?

1.31.21 “The Greatest Gift: Our Daily Bread (Mark 6:33-36, 41-44) (22 min). Worship in Zoom: Video & Audio. Our choir sings, “The Lord’s Prayer.” The miraculous feeding of 5,00 teaches us two things: 1) God provides fully, and 2) God provides daily.

1.24.21 “The Greatest Gift: Healing Love” (Mark 2:1-12) (25 min). Worship in Zoom: Video & Audio. Our choir sings, “Hallelujah (Your Love Is Amazing).” Jesus corrects the teachings of the Jewish Leaders that encouraged the fearful God. Jesus came to reveal the God of Love of the Bible.

1.17.21 “The Greatest Gift: Demons Flee” (Mark 1:21-28) (20 min). Worship in Zoom: Video & Audio. Our choir sings, “Give it to Jesus.” The first display of power by Jesus was casting out an unclean spirit. That was after his defeat of Satan in a 40 day match. Jesus wants for us to be free of fear and worry.

Our choir sings, “First Noel.” It’s surprising to find that God didn’t share his plan in detail with Mary and Joseph. He called them to God’s work, but he didn’t tell them what to expect. God requires us to ponder them in our hearts.

12.13.20 “The Greatest Gift: What’s Jesus Doing in a Barn?” (Luke 2:1-7) (18 min). Worship in Zoom: Video & Audio.
