As we approach Holy Week, I want to begin a series titled “ANASTASIS”. This is the Greek word for resurrection. Many of us have heard the language of the empty tomb or Christ rising from the dead, but what does that mean for us? How does that change our perspective on life and belief? Over the next few weeks, we will dive into this idea of resurrection and how that impacts our understanding of the Christian life. This weekend’s message is titled “ANASTASIS: FOUNDATIONS”.
Regeneration by Dr. Abidan Shah
This weekend, we are turning a corner in our series. As we have learned, salvation is both a moment and process in the life of every believer. It involves a person going from being spiritually dead to being alive in Christ. But what does that mean? And how does it change the way we celebrate Easter? The title of this weekend’s message is “REGENERATION.”
This weekend, we will be examining the process of salvation. We use the language of being saved or asking Jesus into your heart a lot, but what exactly is happening? As we will learn from this message, the process of justification involves Christ taking away our sins and giving us His righteousness so that we may be counted as blameless before God. The title of this weekend’s message is “JUSTIFICATION: IMPUTATION.”
Justification: Instruction by Dr. Abidan Shah
This weekend, we will continue in our series as we head toward Easter. We will be taking a look at the law of God and its impact on the life of the believer. This is something that might be difficult for us to understand. Maybe you think of the law of God as being an Old Testament concept and that after Jesus, the Christian life was all about grace. While the grace of God is important, the law of God is not diminished. This weekend’s message is titled “JUSTIFICATION: INSTRUCTION.”
Plunder by Dr. Abidan Shah
This weekend, we conclude Isaiah 53 and focus on the reward for Jesus’ obedience. Isaiah writes about Jesus’ seeing generations beyond Himself, pointing forward to the resurrection and His victory over death and the grave. We were stolen out of God’s hand, but Christ came to rob the grave and steal us back. The title of today’s message is “PLUNDER.”
Atonement by Dr. Abidan Shah
This weekend, we will dive into Peter’s examination of the book of Isaiah. Isaiah 53 is only mentioned a handful of times in the New Testament, but Peter’s use of the passage is the one of the most significant. We will take a look at Jesus’ death on the cross and its effect on our lives. The title of this series is “ATONEMENT.”
Herald by Dr. Abidan Shah
This Easter Sunday, as we celebrate what Christ has accomplished through His death and resurrection, we come to the last message in our series "HOSANNA." We will take a look at Luke's Gospel and his account of the women who visited Jesus' tomb. They overcame their fear and, as a result, became the first heralds of the resurrected King! The disciples themselves didn't earn such an honor because they were paralyzed by fear. The title of this weekend's message is "HERALD."
Triumphant by Dr. Abidan Shah
TRIUMPHANT by Dr. Shah, Clearview Church, Henderson, NC Introduction: I have been to many big cities, but my favorite ones to visit, not live, is Washington DC. I love all the iconic sites (Washington monument, Lincoln Memorial, World War 2 memorial, Capitol Building). We’ve even filmed there before. Our family loves to visit there as well....

Fearless Love by Pastor Abidan Shah
As you know, this weekend we will be celebrating Easter as a church. What a wonderful time of worship and rejoicing as we remember the resurrection of our Savior. We will be taking a look at the story of Jesus’ resurrection from the perspective of His followers. How did it affect them? How did they respond? For many of them, their actions were fueled by something much deeper than obedience. They were motivated by a love that gave them boldness and purpose. The title of this weekend’s Easter message is “FEARLESS LOVE.”
Senseless Obedience by Pastor Abidan Shah
Typically on Palm Sunday, we hear messages about Jesus entering Jerusalem. However, this year, I want to focus on what takes place immediately before His entrance into the city. Jesus commanded His disciples to untie a colt and bring it to Him to ride upon. On the surface, this command doesn’t make sense, but the disciples obeyed anyway. The title of this week’s message is “SENSELESS OBEDIENCE.”
Heart Search by Pastor Abidan Shah
The Corinthians were treating each other hatefully during the Communion part of the Love Feast. What was supposed to be a somber moment became a shameful display. Paul had to chastise them and take them back to the fateful night when Jesus celebrated the final Communion with his disciples. Paul commands the Corinthians to examine their hearts and to see if they are ready to take part of such a great meal.
Alive: What Jesus’ Resurrection Means for Us
Contrary to what many consider, the resurrection of Jesus is not some stale doctrine based on some event that took place 2000 years ago. In fact, it is one of the most applicable doctrine of Christianity.
Heaven Here and Now Part Three
In this Sunday’s message we will look at I Corinthians 15 – the key passage in the entire Bible on the resurrection. This is one message you cannot afford to miss.
Heaven Here and Now Part Two
This weekend I'll be preaching part two of our series "Heaven Here and Now". It was awesome to see the response from so many of you. Heaven begins now and not some day in the future. This weekend, we will go one step further in the rights and privileges of being citizens of heaven.
Heaven Here and Now – Part One
This weekend I will be preaching a series on the Resurrection. As we embark on the Easter season , this series will teach us the importance of the resurrection to our Christian life. Resurrection is not just something that we will benefit from when we go to heaven. It is something that impacts our lives right now.
How To Beat Death
Today we are celebrating Easter Sunday. It commemorates the day Jesus rose from the grave. With that in mind, I am preaching a message titled “HOW TO BEAT DEATH.” Unless Jesus comes for us first, death is coming to all of us.

EASTER MEANS YOU GET A SECOND CHANCE
EASTER MEANS YOU GET A SECOND CHANCE John 21:1-7 1 After these things Jesus showed Himself again to the disciples at the Sea of Tiberias, and in this way He showed Himself: 2 Simon Peter, Thomas called the Twin, Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, the sons of Zebedee, and two others of His disciples were together....
