Family interventions might seem harsh, but they are one of the most loving things that can be done to someone who is caught up in addiction.

Paul's letter to Timothy includes an intervention of sort, naming names of those he turned over to Satan.

Pastor Levi recaps a Conversations in the Sauna about Sin & Grace from 1 Timothy 1:12-20.

This is a podcast of Evangel Baptist Church, Houghton, Michigan, on June 18, 2017.

Conversations in the Sauna: Law and Gospel

Great conversations are 2 parts individual comfort, 3 parts common ground, 2 parts equality, and 1 part skill.

And great conversations happen in the sauna because people are relaxed taking part in an activity where they have common ground. And in a traditional Finnish sauna, the — a-hem — "attire" is a great equalizer.

The conversations tend to be deep. And they get right to the point, since there's typically only a fifteen minute window until you need a breather.

Well, this summer will be talking about 1 Timothy, which are letters Paul wrote to his son in Christ. No, they were not conversations in the sauna, but one can totally see how those conversations might've taken place in the sauna.

Pastor Levi kicks off the sermon series Conversations in the Sauna with a discussion on Law & Gospel from 1 Timothy 1:1-11.

This is a podcast of Evangel Baptist Church, Houghton, Michigan, on June 11, 2017.

What's in your safe deposit box? Maybe gold and jewelry, but most likely precious documents that cannot be replaced. A marriage license. Original birth certificates. The box is simple. It's not ornamented at all, because the point is not the box — it's the contents.

Ken Nabi, District Executive Minister of Converge Great Lakes, shares a gospel message from 2 Corinthians 4. You are God's safe deposit box, plain on the outside but with profound treasure on the inside.

The Scripture text is 2 Corinthians 4. This is a podcast of Evangel Baptist Church, Houghton, Michigan, on June 4, 2017.

Every generation has its values — things it finds important, prioritizes. Every generation has its unique challenges. Every generation has responded to the world in its own way. But ultimately, the one question that unites every generation is will you follow God.

The challenges we have to following God does not always come from outside the church. It is important whom and what we trust.

Pastor Levi encourages us to Get In The Right Wheelbarrow in his message about orthodoxy and heresy.

This is a podcast of Evangel Baptist Church, Houghton, Michigan, on May 28, 2017.

There are simple tools to measure people's devotion to things. The amount of time they spend at work. The consistency of their exercise regimen. The care they taken repairing food. Jesus measures our devotion to him and how much we love others.

Have the windows to your soul been boarded up? It's time to Open the Windows, Spring is Here. Let in the fresh winds of the Holy Spirit.

Levi kicks off our new sermon series talking about prayer.

One lady at Evangel is very interesting. She used to run dog sleds. She works with wood. It's easy to talk to her for hours. She's also a great listener. She's interested in other people, and it's easy to talk to her for hours because she cares.

Likewise, we have an interesting God and he's interested in us.

Our Scripture text for today is the prayer our Lord taught us to pray, Matthew 6:9-13, and also Psalm 19. This is a podcast of Evangel Baptist Church, Houghton, Michigan, on April 23, 2017.

A tale of two men — of two tombs, really, one with bones and one without. The historic record of Jesus's death is undeniable, but is the resurrection plausible? Could the disciples have really pulled off a body snatching? How could so many have maintained a ruse under persecution.

In this classic Easter message, Pastor Levi assures us that our faith is not in vain.

Our Scripture text for today is Acts 2:24-32. This is a podcast of Evangel Baptist Church, Houghton, Michigan, on April 16, 2017.
