At VGBC, we believe very strongly that God has spoken and communicated to us in the Bible.  Because of this conviction, our preaching is based on God’s Word.  The responsibility of the preacher is to discover what the biblical text means and explain it in a way that the congregation will understand.  We are committed to expository preaching, which simply means we want to expose the clear meaning of the text.  We want you to be able to read along in your Bible and be able to verify that what is being taught from the pulpit is consistent with what the text says.  We also believe that the goal of preaching is application and lives changed for God’s glory.  We want you to be challenged and encouraged, and we hope
you are changed to be more like Christ as a result of hearing His Word.

Kingdom Stories
Sermon Series by Dr. Chris Moore
 
 In this sermon series, we are going through the parables of Jesus.  Of all the words of Jesus that are recorded for us, 35% were spoken in parables.  One reason Jesus used stories to communicate is because He was a master at communicating.  He knew that we love stories.  He had the ability to draw people into a story, and then drive home the point.  As we look at the parables we will become better equipped for life in the Kingdom of God.

The Talents
 
In this parable, Jesus tells a story about a master who entrusted his servants and expected them to work hard and make a profit with what he gave them.  We discover God expects us to serve Him faithfully and we will give an account for all we have been given.

    11th Hour Workers
    In this parable, we discover God’s Kingdom is different from the way our world usually works.  We are reminded we should be grateful because we can identify with the 11th hour workers.  When we realize we have experienced God’s grace, we begin to have a different perspective.

    Four Soils

    Lost
    Luke 15:11-32 In this sermon, we look at the parable of the prodigal son.  We discover there are two ways to be lost.  The first way is obvious and is represented by the younger son.  The second way to be lost is more subtle, and we discover this is what the parable is about.

    The Great Banquet
    In this sermon we are reminded about the great banquet that will take place when Christ returns.  We learn from those who reject the invitation and from those who accept the invitation.  We also discover something important about the Host of the celebration.

    May 26, 2019
    The Rich Man & Lazarus
    In this parable, we discover two themes.  The first one involves a great reversal.  Those who are rich toward themselves and not rich toward God will have nothing in the end but misery.  This reversal sets the stage for the main point, which is the sufficiency of God’s Word.  We discover why God’s Word is all we really need.
