Constitution of the Kingdom - The Logs in our Eyes
To judge or not to judge? That's a very relevant question in a world that doesn't take too lightly to moral truth. Join us today as Pastor Brian considers that question in light of Jesus' teaching in the Sermon on the Mount.

Constitution of the Kingdom - Anxiety Attacks
How does a citizen of the Kingdom handle anxiety? If our focus in on the things of God, then anxiety doesn't have much of a place in our lives. Join us this week as we look at Jesus' words in Matthew 6:25-34.
Nov 8, 2020
Constitution of the Kingdom - I Pledge Allegiance
Being a Kingdom Citizen demands a total reorientation of one's life. Jesus' expectation is that Kingdom Citizens will be 100% devoted to the King & the Kingdom. Join us today as Pastor Brian unpacks these high standards of Kingdom living that ask the question - "Who is your master?"
Nov 1, 2020

In Matthew 6, Jesus teaches us how not to pray - but he also teaches us how we should pray. By giving us a model prayer, he reminds us of just how Kingdom Citizens ought to pray.
Oct 18, 2020
Constitution of the Kingdom - Too Many Words
Jesus' teaching on prayer calls for Kingdom Citizens to have a decidedly different heart attitude when it comes to our communion with God. It isn't about the number of words or the repetition of meaningless phrases. Join us for this week's teaching from Matthew 6 and the Sermon on the Mount.
Oct 11, 2020
Constitution of the Kingdom - Praying the Part
In our series through the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus' instruction takes an inward turn - asking us to evaluate how we practice our faith and how we manage external action with internal righteousness. Join us this week as Pastor Brian takes us into Matthew 6:1-6, 16-18.

Constitution of the Kingdom - Matters of the Heart (REVENGE)
In this latest teaching from Pastor Brian, we question the role of our rights. As Kingdom Citizens, how do we respond to a violent world in a way that honors Christ?

From this Rock, On this Rock
This week, Chattanooga Valley Baptist Church celebrates her 150th Anniversary. As we reflect on that history, it is important to keep in mind God's faithfulness, but we have to be careful that our nostalgia about times-gone-by does not cause us to forget the goals that are set before us.
Sep 14, 2020
Constitution of the Kingdom - Matters of the Heart (INTEGRITY)
As citizens of the Kingdom, our words should be dependable. In this section of the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus stresses the importance of honesty and integrity when it comes to our words. For Christians, our words should be our oath.
Sep 6, 2020
Constitution of the Kingdom - Matters of the Heart (FAMILY)
Our contemporary culture has drifted light years away from Jesus' plain teaching on marriage. Though divorce touches so many people, God's plan from Genesis is still the best. This week's sermon, from Jesus' Sermon on the Mount, considers the biblical picture of marriage and encourages faithfulness to God's standard as citizens of the Kingdom.
Aug 31, 2020
Constitution of the Kingdom - Matters of the Heart (PURITY)
Content Warning - this week's sermon is a little more mature than other weeks due to the subject matter. If you normally listen with small children, be advised that this sermon deals with mature subject matter concerning human sexuality. Join us for this week's teaching from the Sermon on the Mount. Jesus is seeking to help his hearers understand how citizens of His Kingdom are to live. In Christ's Kingdom, external righteousness is inadequate. The hearts of the citizens should be inclined toward the King. Today, Pastor Brian will consider the dangerous role that thoughts play in the physical act of adultery.
Aug 25, 2020
Constitution of the Kingdom - Matters of the Heart (ANGER)
Sorry for the delay this week. We had some technical difficulties with our recording. Join us for this week's sermon as we continue our study of the Sermon on the Mount. In this message, Pastor Brian tackles Jesus words about anger from Matthew 5:21-26.

Constitution of the Kingdom - Not a Dot
Join us this week as Pastor Brian continues this sermon series on the Sermon on the Mount. Today, we will be considering Jesus' words regarding his relationship to the Old Testament. This hard-hitting teaching gets to the heart of who we are as believers and challenges us to examine our self-righteousness vs. Jesus' righteousness.

Have you ever really been hungry? What about thirsty? Today, as we consider Jesus words about hungering and thirsting for righteousness, we learn that there's more to life than just food and drink. Let us pursue conformity with the will of God!
Jun 29, 2020
Constitution of the Kingdom - The Beatitudes (Part 2)
Join us for this teaching on the importance of meekness. It's not a character trait that is too favorable in our modern context, but it is near to the heart of God. Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth!
Jun 21, 2020
Constitution of the Kingdom - The Beatitudes (Part 1)
Jesus begins the Sermon on the Mount with one of the most profound statements in the New Testament - Blessed are the poor in spirit. Join us today as we consider the first two beatitudes. In doing so, we will find that these are more than wise proverbs, but contain the most essential concepts in "being blessed" in the Kingdom of God.
Jun 14, 2020
The Constitution of the Kingdom
Today, we begin a new series through the Sermon on the Mount from Matthew 5-7. This introduction considers the context of Jesus' message as well as some principles for applying the sermon in our modern context.

He begins his ministry by declaring the fulfillment of time! How are we to interpret the time of this current season. Tune in as we seek to answer this question.
Apr 19, 2020
Sweet Sixteen - A New Creation
We make our last stop in the Old Testament to see God's reveal his plan for righting all the wrong done in the Garden. A plan has been put in place to make atonement for sin and for conquering death. In Isaiah 65, we see God's plan for a new Creation.

Sweet Sixteen - Can These Bones Live?
The Resurrection is promised in Ezekiel 37 in the Valley of the Dry Bones. Join us this week as we look forward to the wonderful promise that God will empty the graves!

Good Friday - The Walking Dead
As we reflect on the importance of Good Friday, we recognize the tremendous work that was accomplished on the cross. Ephesians 2 helps us to understand how our former condition was changed through the death of Christ.

King David had in mind to build a Temple for the LORD...but God had a much greater plan in place. God promised to establish David's kingdom forever. Though David's son failed, God was looking to a future with an eternal king. Join us today as we publicly declare, "LONG LIVE THE KING!"

Mar 15, 2020
Sweet Sixteen - King Judah
God promised a royal line would come through Abraham's great-grandson, Judah. Though he wasn't the one we would expect, God was gracious to allow Judah to be the ancestor of the King who would bring about the Kingdom. Today, we worship King Jesus and he calls us to continue to bring about God's blessings on the nations - especially in the light of the current health crisis.
Mar 8, 2020
Sweet Sixteen - Father Abraham
God's plan of redemption now works through the life of a man named Abram and his family. Though he had none of the resources necessary to accomplish God's plan, he was willing and obedient. How many of us limit God because we feel we lack resources. Join us today as we see God take a godless, landless, childless old man and position him to make him a nation.
Mar 1, 2020
Sweet Sixteen - Redemption Promised
God's plan for redemption was never Plan B. In the middle of the worst day, God offered a wonderful glimpse of hope in the crushing of the serpent's head. As Christians, we live knowing that God promises victory over the enemy to those who follow Christ!

Sweet Sixteen - FAIL
God made a very good creation and shared the run and reign of that creation with mankind, created in His image. It was a recipe for a great outcome. However, when we look around our world today, we are confronted with some things that are less than very good. What happened? Join us today as we consider the Fall from Genesis 3. And let us rejoice that Genesis 3 is not the end of the story!
Feb 17, 2020
Sweet Sixteen - Being Human
The crown of God's creative work are human beings! He designed them with purpose, but we find that the God-ordained purpose of people often runs counter to the current cultural trends. Join us for the second stop in our journey through the Scriptures!
Feb 9, 2020
Sweet Sixteen - Creation
In this new series, we will be considering the scope of the Biblical story in 16 key verses. Today, we look at the doctrine of creation!
Feb 2, 2020
Andrew isn't one of the more prominent disciples, but he does have a tendency that all Christians should model. When we meet him in the New Testament, he is almost always bringing people to Jesus. In fact, he is responsible for his brother, Peter, being introduced to Jesus. We may feel rather inconsequential, but we never know just how consequential our service to the Kingdom may actually be. Join us today as we consider Andrew, The Inviter.
Jan 26, 2020
A Story of Hell
It's not a popular topic today, but it is one that the church desperately needs to talk about. What does the Bible tell us about Hell? Join Pastor Brian as he unpacks this challenging topic today!
Jan 19, 2020
The Importance of One
How important is ONE? Philip went out of his way to track down his ONE. When we consider our commitment to personal evangelism, we won't do it unless we are intentional about it. Join us as we continue to ask the question - Who's Your ONE?
Jan 12, 2020
In Luke 5, we meet four men who felt compelled to get a helpless friend in front of Jesus. In spite of obstacles that seemed insurmountable, they pulled all the stops, and as a result, their friend found both physical and spiritual healing. Their efforts are exemplary and encourage us all as we think about our lost friends and neighbors!
Jan 7, 2020
On Earth as it is in Heaven
CVBC is beginning 2020 with the Who's Your One campaign. All month long, we will be looking at the nature of a disciple and the call of the disciple to be engaged in the Great Commission. Join us today as we consider the nature of a disciple and the call to stop being "Christians" and start being Jesus' disciples.

Go Tell it on the Mountain
God demonstrates true love for us by sending Jesus on a rescue mission. Powerless to save ourselves, we have to receive the offer of rescue. This week, we look at one of the stops on the Romans Road to consider how great a love we have experienced and how that love should compel us to share this good news with others!
Dec 15, 2019
Joy to the World
On this third Sunday of Advent, we consider the theme of joy. When Mary visits Elizabeth, she sings a beautiful song reflecting on God's goodness! It gives us cause to ponder how joyful our lives are. For Christians, our joy is wrapped up in the Lord, not our circumstances. Joy, as one author put it, is "the emotion of salvation." Join us this week as we consider joy!
Dec 8, 2019
Come Thou Long Expected Jesus
With the birth of Jesus, we can experience peace. Alongside the peace of Christ, our lives our filled with hope. The Israelites had great hope in the return of the future son of David. As Jesus' followers, we have tremendous hope in the return of Jesus. As we live under the promise of his return, let that compel us to bring as many people along with us as possible!
Dec 1, 2019
Let there be Peace on Earth
As we begin our Advent celebration, we focus on the concept of Peace - or as the Hebrews call it, Shalom. Peace is more than the absence of conflict. It is a God-given sense of completion and fullness that comes only from a right relationship with Jesus. Let us consider the song of the Angels in the Bethlehem sky as we look to the Biblical concept of "peace."

Obituary of a Hero
Deuteronomy 34 serves as Moses' functional obituary. As a result, we are challenged to consider how we will finish our lives!
Nov 17, 2019
No Empty Word
The Bible is sufficient for all matters of faith and practice for the Christian. However, we do not always treat it as such. Today's sermon considers the importance of God's word - both for the generation of Israelites entering the Promised Land, and for the church today.
Nov 10, 2019
Big Shoes to Fill
In the changing of the guard from Moses to Joshua, we see some important principles at work. Mature believers need to be investing in the next generation while also listening to and learning from them. Join us today from Deuteronomy 31:1-8.
Nov 3, 2019
A Matter of Life and Death
Jesus said if we love him, we will keep his commandments. During this sermon, Pastor Brian explores the nature of obedience and disobedience, blessing and cursing from Deuteronomy 30.

Land of the Giants
There are all kinds of giants in our lives. Financial, relational, medical. God doesn't want us to fear our giants, but wants to us to give Him glory as he helps us confront our giants.
Oct 21, 2019
Frustration & Failure
Nearing the end of his ministry, Moses' emotions get the best of him as he lashes out in anger and frustration. God has made us as emotive creatures, but it is important, as Christians, that we bring every thought captive in obedience to Christ - including our emotions.
Oct 13, 2019
Forgiveness is good for the soul, but it starts with a right relationship with Jesus.

Things You'll Never Hear in Church

Sep 22, 2019
Moses is given an opportunity to correct a previous error. We serve a God who is a God of second chances!
Sep 15, 2019
His Ways & His Glory
When Moses is confronted with the glory of God - his only response is that of worship. Moses is eager to know more than God's power - he wants to know God's person. In this dramatic encounter with the glory of God, Moses comes to realize that God's character and his glory go hand in hand.
Sep 8, 2019
Face to Face
Moses' relationship to the Lord is described as a friendship. How many of us seek a relationship with God that is described as a friendship? This week, we will consider this friendship and how we can seek that level of intimacy with the Lord.
Aug 25, 2019
The last of the 10 commandments is a prohibition against coveting. This may be one of the hardest commandments to keep. Today, we learn about the problems of coveting and how the Lord helps us overcome!
Aug 18, 2019
The 9th Commandment tells us to not bear false witness. Today, the opportunity to use our words for evil purposes abound. Let us guard our words - both spoken with our lips and typed with our fingers.
