The Excelsior Springs Church

The Excelsior Springs Church is a Historic, Independent, Unincorporated, Non-501c3, KJV-only, Sovereign Grace Baptist Church which meets in Excelsior Springs, Missouri near Kansas City. We believe in the divine inspiration and preservation of the Bible in the King James Version (Authorized Version of 1611), which is the only basis of our faith and practice. We believe in the sovereign electing grace of God which alone saves sinners eternally and that a man's faith in Jesus Christ is the evidence, not the cause, of eternal life. We believe that once a man believes the gospel and repents of his sins, he ought to be baptized by immersion in water which adds him to the local church. We believe that the local church was instituted by God for the edifying and improvement of the faith of God's children and is where they should worship Him in spirit and in truth and fellowship with Christians of like-faith.

Lessons From Bad King Ahaz (Part 7) - Isaiah 7



Pastor Wagner preached an extemporaneous sermon series on the life of King Ahaz (Isaiah 7) and the lessons that we can learn from his bad example. In this sermon some of the lessons include how we must not be moved by the winds of false doctrine; how we should not fear men or our circumstances, but instead trust in God; how God would not let Ahaz be replaced by another king because the Lord Jesus Christ was to be born through his lineage; how we must believe to be established and stable; how wicked men hide their unbelief and rebellion under a cloke of piety; how Jesus Christ is God manifest in the flesh; how life begins at conception; how the virgin conceiving Christ was a sign to the house of David; how God will use the arm of flesh that we lean on to destroy us for our sins against Him. This sermon is a verse by verse exposition of Isaiah 7.
