Pastor John Goebbel

Ever feel like you wanted to be a different person?


May 04, 2014: The Mirror of Change
Pastor J. R. Thompson

https://westridge.cc/43530

Are you looking for real change in your life? The first thing to do is get rid of the veil.


Apr 27, 2014: Promised - Holy Spirit
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/43343

Spiritual gifts are to be used to help others and point people to Jesus. They are never to draw attention to ourselves.


Apr 20, 2014: Promised - Power of His Word
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/43268

Jesus' words have power. You are blessed with His Words.


Apr 13, 2014: Promises - His and ours
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/43139

People have best intentions, but still break promises. That's not the way it is with God.


Apr 06, 2014:
Pastor J.R. Thompson

https://westridge.cc/43044

With respect to the need and value of doing "good works", which camp are you in?


Mar 30, 2014: The Honour Key
Pastor John Goebbel and Russell Evans

https://westridge.cc/41686

A kingdom is a "king's domain". What does a king's domain look like?


Mar 23, 2014: True/False Test
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/41588

"Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven." (Matt 7:21 NIV)


Mar 16, 2014: The Way
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/41403

Jesus talks about following him and says "narrow is the way" (Matt 7:14 KJV). Exactly how narrow is this way?


Mar 09, 2014: Prayer, Fasting, & Wealth
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/41234

God looks at the heart of a worshipper and helps us understand the heart He is looking for. He also talks about some things He is not looking for.


Mar 02, 2014: Love & Bless People
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/41168

How do we handle tough people?

God's rules are always there to protect us.


Feb 16, 2014: Self Help vs Spirit Help
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/40949

Do you have something that is bothering you? Are you really trusting God or are you trying to "fix it" yourself... even just a little bit?


Feb 09, 2014: Astonished at His Teaching | Blessed
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/40637

Matthew 7 reports that "the people were astonished at His [Jesus'] teaching". Perhaps we should be more astonished that Jesus said "he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do" (John 14:12 NKJV)


Feb 02, 2014: Kingdom Advancers
Pastor John Goebbel

"And as you go, preach, saying, 'The kingdom of heaven is at hand.'"

Jan 12, 2014: The Ancient Jewish Wedding
Rabbi Jack Zimmerman

https://westridge.cc/39997

Rabbi Zimmerman from Jewish Voice Ministries revealed interesting parallels between the Bible's discussion of the "Bride of Christ" and actual Jewish marriages.


Jan 05, 2014: Worship 101 | Teacher: Jesus Christ
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/39680

Now is the hour to be a true worshipper of God. Now is the hour.


Dec 29, 2013: The One - The Way
Pastor JR Thompson

https://westridge.cc/39570

The Bible challenges us to follow the "way" of Jesus by being an imitator of Christ.


Dec 22, 2013: The One and Only
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/39433

"...And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace..."


Dec 15, 2013: The Provisions
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/39348

One of amazing facts about Jesus we see in scripture is that He is "The One" that created all things.


Dec 08, 2013: The Announcement
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/39151

Have you ever considered that Jesus came to earth at just the exact right time?


Dec 01, 2013: The Covenant of Power and Fellowship
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/38874

We know what a contract is, but what is a covenant? What are some of the covenants that God makes with believers?


Nov 24, 2013: Worship | Expressing Our Love
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/38398

When you love someone, you want them to be with you. Do you love God? Do you show it in your worship?


Nov 17, 2013: Government
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/37834

Since West Ridge is a non-denominational church, who oversees the work done here?


Nov 10, 2013: Ministries & Values
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/37339

How do you "give away the Gospel" while serving people?


Nov 03, 2013: Reaching the Ridge
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/37073

Changes or "transitions" occur in our lives and in our churches. How do we know they are healthy changes?


Oct 27, 2013: New Beginnings
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/36261

Most gifts lose their appeal over time. There is one gift, that not only doesn't, but multiples over time. So much so that you can give it away and you still have it.


Oct 20, 2013: The Call to the Spirit Led Life
Pastor Peter DeArruda

https://westridge.cc/36090

Your title, position or even your God-given gifts do not define who you are. If not that, then what?


Oct 13, 2013: Stand, Wait, Run and Walk
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/35997

Life brings along many situations, each requiring a different response.


Oct 06, 2013: Galatians 4
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/35425

Not only are we heirs of God, but we receive freedom in Christ.


Sep 29, 2013: Student vs Heirs
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/35212

Many people say they know God. How many are, as the Bible says, heirs?


Sep 22, 2013: Truth of the Gospel | Justified by ...
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/35068

When we think of justice being done, we think of getting what is deserved.


Sep 15, 2013: The One and Only Gospel
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/34585

Are you trying to win the approval of people or of God?


Sep 08, 2013: Healthy Church
Pastor Charley Elliott

https://westridge.cc/34317
A healthy church isn't a building filled with people, but people filled with God.
Sep 01, 2013: Vision | The Gospel Mission and Mandate
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/34261
A gift of immeasurable value, of far greater value than anything else imaginable, is offered to all. What could keep someone from accepting such a gift?
Aug 25, 2013: Vision - Personal Divine Revelation
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/34156
Hearing from God is always good. But what things in your life demand a lot of your time and energy and keep you from spending time with God?
Aug 18, 2013: Vision - The Why & How's of Ministry
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/33363

Aug 11, 2013: Vision - Give2Give | God Be Exalted
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/33255
The fruit produced by a tree isn't kept and used by the tree. What are you doing with the "fruit" produced by you?
Aug 04, 2013: Fractured - Happy Husband, Happy Home
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/33194

Men and women are different (surprise!), but each can understand and meet the needs of their spouse. In fact, for men, it really boils down to three big things.


Jul 28, 2013: Fractured - Happy Child, Happy House
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/33091

Children are a gift but also a tremendous responsibility. The Bible talks about the ways we are to teach our children. How well are we doing?


Jul 21, 2013: Fractured - The Family Story
Doug Tunney

https://westridge.cc/32996

Several times the Bible talks about submitting. Why do we have such trouble with this?


Jul 14, 2013: Fractured - Happy Wife ... Happy Life
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/32817

The Bible has a lot to say about marriage and how the man should lay down his life for his wife. What exactly does that look like?


Jul 07, 2013: Fractured - Dealing with Anger
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/32759

Anger can be very destructive, but we all get angry at times. What does the Bible teach about our anger? Is it okay to be angry?


Jun 30, 2013: Fractured - Family Balance
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/32621

Does your life seem out of balance? Is this putting strain on your relationships? What can we do?


Jun 23, 2013: The First Fracture
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/32555

Some of us have deep family fractures and the healing seems impossible. You are not alone. Consider the familiies of some of the greatest people mentioned in the Bible.


Jun 16, 2013: The Influence of a Father
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/32433
We can only give what we possess. Are you walking the walk?
Jun 09, 2013: C7 | Serving
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/32345

God has equipped you with unique abilities and talents to accomplish what he has called and purposed you to do.


Jun 02, 2013: C7 | Empowered
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/32241

"But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name..." John 1:12 (KJV). An amazing promise.


May 26, 2013: C7 | Equipped
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/32107

Have you ever said "God can't use me"?


May 19, 2013: C7 | Discipled
Pastor Warren Kooi

https://westridge.cc/32049

What are the characteristics of the people described as Jesus' disciples? Would that describe you?


May 12, 2013: C7 | Set Free
Pastor Warren Kooi

https://westridge.cc/31977

When someone says you can be free, we usually think of being released from something. Is God's promise more than that?


May 05, 2013: C7 | Healed
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/31861

We live in a fallen world where, unfortunately, sickness exists.


Apr 28, 2013: C7 | Saved
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/31710

Saved, redeemed, justified... you hear a lot of words spoken in church about these topics. Just what does it all mean?


Apr 21, 2013: The Battle for Peace
Pastor Steven Pritt

https://westridge.cc/31698
"...God is not the author of confusion, but of peace..." (1 Cor 14:33) and yet there is still confusion and lack of peace in the world. Why?
Apr 14, 2013: Strengthening the Faithful
Andrew Mack

https://westridge.cc/31533
We can find ourselves in trouble, in sin, in terrible circumstances. Regardless of what you did or even what you are doing now, it is God alone who can save you.
Apr 07, 2013: Worthy of our Worship
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/31448
You were created to worship and praise. Are you offering it to God?
Mar 31, 2013: Behold Your King
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/31399
God has a purpose for everything He does and He has an exact purpose for you and me.
Mar 24, 2013: Your King is Coming
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/31222
Many times the things we pray for come to pass in surprising, unexpected ways. Consider what the Jews of Jesus' time were praying for and how those prayers were answered.
Mar 17, 2013: The Symbols of Scripture
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/31124
There are many reasons to read the Word of God, but one of the most important was mentioned by Jesus (Matt 12:43-45). If we don't fill our hearts and minds with God's Word, space is left open for very undesirable things.
Mar 10, 2013: The Light of the Lamp
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/31015

Over the past few weeks we've learned how the Word of God provides life. This week we see that the Word illuminates our way so we don't stumble in the dark places. (Ps 119:105)


Mar 03, 2013: Sword of the Spirit
JR Thompson

https://westridge.cc/30996

The "sword" (Word of God), is not only powerful and able to protect us, but it is also described as being alive and active. What can the Word of God do?


Feb 24, 2013: The Breath of God
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/30797

It is interesting how the "breath" of God is described in the Bible as being able to give life, understanding, strength and order. How is this power different from the "bread of heaven" and the "living water" that we also receive?


Feb 17, 2013: The Water of Life
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/30681

When Moses and the children of Israel were wandering in the desert, they cried out for water. It was provided from a rock. Jesus talks about building houses on rock so the floods don't wash them away. What is the meaning when the Bible talks about water and rock?


Feb 10, 2013: The Bread of Heaven
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/30552

In the Bible, the Book of John describes Jesus as the "Word of God". Later in the same book, John reports Jesus describing himself as the "bread of life". What is the connection between these two statements?


Feb 03, 2013: Principal of Honor, Withdraw, Fleeing and Guarding
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/30446

There are so many things in this world that can trap us and draw us away from God. Paul teaches Timothy to honor God, withdraw -- even flee (literally, run away) from things that could trap him and guard that which has been entrusted to him.


Jan 27, 2013: More Than You Can Imagine
Pastor Mark Simpson

https://westridge.cc/30272

The Bible speaks of the Lord doing more than we could even imagine or ask for -- so long as what we ask for would bring glory to Jesus.


Jan 20, 2013: You Are a Leader
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/30175

The Bible says that God has given you unique and special gifts and abilities, but Satan whispers "you're not good enough". Who are you believing?


Jan 13, 2013: Elders and Deacons
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/30028

In past weeks we've talked about how we learn from the Lord through teaching/preaching, worship and classes. But all the work of the church could not go on if everything relied on one person.


Jan 06, 2013: Messy Church / Healthy Church
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/29901

When we see difficult teaching the Bible, what should we do?


Dec 30, 2012: God's Instruction to His Church
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/29864

Sometimes we can get off track -- focusing on things that stir up dissention rather than building or strengthening people. Paul taught Timothy how to have the church refocus on what was important.


Dec 24, 2012: Christmas Eve
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/29755

Scripture talks about Jesus being the "light". When Jesus came, he brought this light to the world. What is this light?


Dec 23, 2012: The Son | The Response
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/29689

The circumstances surrounding Jesus' birth were amazing!


Dec 16, 2012: The Christmas Blessing - Part II
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/29557

The celebration of Christmas truly is the celebration of the miraculous.


Dec 09, 2012: Blessing of Christmas
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/29454

Last week we learned about God's plan for our lives. This week we learned how purposeful God is in helping us understand this plan.


Dec 02, 2012: Principles of Prospering
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/29299

We all know about blessings, but did you know that your finances can be blessed? Did you know the opposite is true too?


Nov 25, 2012: It's All About Stress
Pastor Warren Kooi

https://westridge.cc/29180

Holidays can be stressful, in fact, life in general can be stressful. How can we manage?


Nov 18, 2012: The Heart of Thanksgiving
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/29042

The Bible says "in everything give thanks..." (1 Thes 5:18a NKJV). Seems like a good idea, right? But it is even more important than that because "... for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you." (1 Thes 5:18b NKJV)


Nov 11, 2012: Blessing in the Midst of Trials
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/28919

Why is it that we consider character a good thing, but the thing that develops it (trials) a bad thing?


Nov 04, 2012: Excellence of Prayer
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/28878

Many times our prayers to God are list of requests. Should we also listen and receive instruction?


Oct 28, 2012: The Lord of the Harvest
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/28705

Jesus tells us that many are waiting to hear more about who He is. "Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest!" John 4:35b (NKJV)


Oct 21, 2012: Excellence in Family
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/28659

While it would be wonderful to live in a perfect family, none of us do. How do we bring "health" back to a family?


Oct 14, 2012: Preparing For The Harvest
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/28166

A building is not a "church" -- it is people who are the church. A building is something that is used to help serve people. Pastor John outlines the plan how this building can be made to serve even better.


Oct 07, 2012: The Excellence of Faith
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/28024

God's promises are eternal. In fact, the Bible tells us that the promises He made to you can outlast you!


Sep 30, 2012: Excellence in Worship
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/27971

Remember, partial obedience is still disobedience. Listen to God and do what he says. It is always, always better.


Sep 27, 2012: Ladies Night
Pastor Adana Wilson

https://westridge.cc/27821

Adana Wilson is Associate Pastor, Adult Ministries at Gateway Church's Frisco, Texas campus. God has you in a special position because He has people that only you can reach.


Sep 23, 2012: The Truth About Authority
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/27727

Everyone is under authority, but sometimes we don't like it. Remember though, God is the originator of all authority.


Sep 16, 2012: The Truth About You
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/27666

The Bible says that we have been made in the image of God. Don't ever think of yourself as just "average".


Sep 09, 2012: The Standard Is Set
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/27550

We can't think "I'm holier than (fill in a name)." We've all missed the mark. God only knows perfection. That is why we all need a savior.


Sep 02, 2012: R12
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/27351

Have you ever known or worked with someone where it was "all about them?" Its hard to work with that person, isn't it? The Bible (Romans Chapter 12) speaks about living the opposite kind of life, the "sacrificial life" and why that is so much better.


Aug 26, 2012: GraceUrgency
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/27255

The Lord, through His Spirit has both commanded and empowered His followers to share His Good News. The simple truth is, though, we have no idea how long we have to do that. Do you have a sense of urgency?


Aug 19, 2012: Give 2 Give - Grace
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/27172

Grace -- favor that isn't earned, or owed or merited in any way, and something we see coming from God -- can also be given by us to others.


Aug 12, 2012: God's Dwelling Place
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/27052

Where does the Bible say God dwells today? What does that say about us?


Aug 05, 2012: Grace Gives ...
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/26969

Even with all the crazy bad decisions we sometimes make, God has not given up on you. Far from it. His grace is more than enough for you.


Jul 29, 2012: My Husband
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/26841

When we understand grace we it will change how we view everything. How we view God, ourselves, and others.


Jul 22, 2012: Unchangeable Grace
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/26710

All through the Old Testament the Bible speaks of sacrifices that needed to be repeated because people would sin again.. But Christ's sacrifice was made only once. Does that sacrifice only cover some of your sins? What happens when you sin again after being saved?


Jul 15, 2012: Understanding Grace
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/26651

Are you trying to do "good works" to earn something from God? If we are keeping score, we are focusing on ourselves and not on Jesus. Do you think that something you do will make God "owe" you something?


Jul 08, 2012: CommUnity
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/26575

Many people desire community, but there are principals we can learn every time we gather together.


Jul 01, 2012: Serve One Another
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/26479

In a real sense, the church today exists because people have followed Jesus' command to serve one another. What abilities and interests has God gifted you with that would be a blessing to someone else? (Note: end of message lost due to technical reasons).


Jun 24, 2012: Serve
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/26399

Jesus said the greatest commandment was to love God with all of your heart, soul and mind. He also said a second commandment was like it: Love your neighbor as yourself. How do you do that in a real, meaningful way?


Jun 17, 2012: Samaria and the Ends of the Earth
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/26273

In Acts 1:8, Jesus tells his followers to take His message to "Samaria and the ends of the Earth" When Jesus talked about "Samaria", what did the believers of that day think about that? Is it difficult today for us to bring the Gospel to our "Samaritans"?


Jun 10, 2012: Our Judea
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/26109

When we talk about stewardship, we usually think of in terms of watching over someone else's money. But did you know that God has put you in the lives of other people and is looking for what you are doing with those relationships?


Jun 03, 2012: Our Jerusalem
Pastor Warren Kooi

https://westridge.cc/26003

In Acts 1, Jesus told his followers that after they received the Holy Spirit, they would be "witnesses" in their communities. What does that mean?


May 27, 2012: Celebrate!
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/25908

Today as we celebrate with those being baptized, we also celebrate all that the Lord is doing at West Ridge.


May 20, 2012: The Holy Spirit - He Strengthens Us
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/25886

In a list of supernatural gifts that are distributed to believers, "speaking in different kinds of tongues' (1 Cor 12:10 NIV) is mentioned. What exactly is that and what is God's purpose in providing this gift?


May 13, 2012: The Holy Spirit - He is a Giver
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/25757

When the Bible speaks of the "gifts of the Spirit" what are those gifts and who receives them?


May 06, 2012: Carried to the Table
Pastor Chris Davis

https://westridge.cc/25639

Just as with the story of King David blessing Jonathon's son Mephibosheth, our King has insured that we too are richly blessed.


Apr 29, 2012: The Holy Spirit - Immersed
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/25511

The Bible speaks about baptism, and in fact speaks of different baptisms. 'I indeed baptized you with water, but He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit.' (Mark 1:8 NKJV). What is the significance of different 'types' of baptisms?


Apr 22, 2012: The Holy Spirit - Tell Me More About Him
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/25429

How do we know God's will for us? Who is this Holy Spirit? How do we know his voice?


Apr 15, 2012: Who Is He? - The Holy Spirit - He Is a Person
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/25310

Scripture is very clear about the Holy Spirit. He is a person, He is a Friend, and He is God!


Apr 08, 2012: Beautiful Exchange
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/25291

What was this exchange that Christ made for you? Why is it called beautiful?


Apr 01, 2012: The Lord on Offering
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/25156

Am I generous? Am I allowing God to bless others through what He has given me?


Mar 25, 2012: The Lord on Tithing
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/25048

What if someone of great wealth gave you a gift, but on the condition that you gave a part of it away. If you didn't, would you expect to receive another gift?


Mar 18, 2012: The Lord on Stuff
Pastor John Goebbel

https://westridge.cc/24915

Having God's heart means He is always first. As He is generous to us, we want to be generous to others.


Mar 11, 2012: God's Generous Gift - Life in the Kingdom
