REVERSING THE CURSE - now available for purchase.
Throughout history mankind has had a fascination with this thing we call "the curse." In the world of the arts--painters and print makers, musicians, play-writes, movie producers and novelists have found this subject of "the curse" the theme of much of their work. Even the Holy Scriptures by the third chapter of its first book, Genesis, reveals to us four curses placed upon creation. Trace mythology, take a glance at the other religions of the world, and you'll find that they all in some way contain "a curse." Curses are a true and real part of our every day life. In nations - they remove prosperity and hinder rise to greatness. In families - they are passed down for generations. In churches - they steal God's glory and destroy the work of man's hands. In individual lives - they remove joy and shipwreck the soul. Curses are not all fantasy, too often they are for real.
In this study, it reveals through the lives of Levi (Jacob's son), King David and the Cross of Jesus Christ how curses can be turned into blessings, how negatives can become positives.
One of the most fascinating aspects for this study is - - although God does not remove the curse (for instance, "the wages of sin is death" that is why all die) in His omnipotence He transforms the curse into a blessing ("but, the free gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord"). Just as God can transform death into eternal life, so He can transform the curses/negatives into blessings/positives in your life.
"Reversing the Curse may be just the teaching series that transforms your life."

Hell - Is It For Real?
During a recent 100 degree week in New Jersey, a church sign read, “If you think it’s hot here...” But Hell is so much more than that - and it’s no joking matter! There are seven words used to describe Hell in the Bible and there are definite and just reasons for its existence. Just as we know and believe that there’s a Heaven, we also need to acknowledge the existence of Hell as a place where no one wants to spend eternity.
In this sermon series, ”Hell: Is It For Real?”, Bruce Sofia covers three important topics relational to this subject:
1) What is Hell?
2) Who is it for?
3) Why is it just?
Truly, this is one subject that you’ll want to know all the answers about before it’s too late!

HOW TO FORGIVE
Of all the series Bruce Sofia has taught, these messages have had the most effect on our Church family.
In this series we explore the following topics:
(1)How to forgive when you can’t forget.
(2)How God makes us forget:
This is not a contradiction to #1
(3) How to confront your transgressor/offender:
Forgiveness for horizontal offenses – person to person – must be dealt with horizontally. All of the prayer in the world will not resolve person to person offenses until one obeys Scripture and goes to their offender. We offer creative ways to confront the transgressor even if he or she is no longer living.
(4)The Holy Spirit’s role in forgiveness:
Believer or not, forgiveness must be accompanied by the Holy Spirit.
(5)How to forgive yourself.
Hence the final message which is a fitting conclusion.
This statement says it all: “When you don’t forgive you allow someone else’s sin to hold you in bondage.” Forgive and let go! That is what this series is all about.
