Sunday Morning Sermon Audio – Hell Can’t Stop the Church | Matthew 16:13-20 (Dr. Bishop E. Carter, III)
“And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” -Matthew 16:18
New Life, 20 years you’ve been rocking and rolling. You are a rockstar. Not on the stage of a concert, where there’s a crowd that’s hollering because of the sounds that you make. But you’re a rockstar because you beat the odds. A lot of folks said you wouldn’t make it. A lot of folks tried to keep you from making it because you stood on Jesus and not the world.
Why a rockstar, Reverend? Thank you for asking–I’m dying to tell you. Because the Rock is who kept you and because of the Star named Jesus, you can make a way out of no way. I come to tell you today that the greatest concert you’ll witness is the one yet to come.
Keep on, New Life. You may be small in number, but you’re big in heart. You do what a church of 200 can’t do because you stand on the foundation of the Rock. Hell can’t stop the church.
