God With US — In this Christmas message, Jamie teaches how God is seeking communion with us. In fact, He wants a relationship with us more than we could ever want one with him.

Remember, Repent, Rejoice — Jamie teaches that God wants you to remember what He has done for you. And as you remember, you will repent. You will repent of not believing and not trusting him.

No matter how tough the situation has been, He has been there before you. So rejoice. He is with you even now. (Dec. 1991) — NOTE: You can also view the video of this teaching by clicking HERE!

 

I Believe God — We have a hard time believing God in this day and age. We hope and we wish, but that is not the same as believing God and believing in His faithfulness. Jesus taught us to come to him as would a little child, stand on the Word of God, and just believe. (May 1991)

 

No Excuses — Jamie discusses the costs and sacrifices necessary to truly be a follower of Jesus. “God never works on changing our behavior,” Jamie says. “God works on changing our desires.

What is That to You?Jamie shares six lessons about dying and how Christians glorify God not only in life but through our death as well. “The way or method of a person’s death is immaterial if that person is following Jesus,” Jamie says. “All that matters is if we are following Jesus.” (May 1991)

(March 1991)

 

Walk Together — Jamie teaches that God did not send Jesus to condemn the world, but to save the world.

Should we and how do we maintain fellowship with them? (May 1990)
