September 2, 2018 Morning Worship Service and Observance of The Lord’s Supper | Pastor Carl McCray

Special music: Jerry Shepherd singing “Wonderful Merciful Savior”

Message: Being Together is Better

As we observe the Lord’s Supper with a spirit of reverence, we celebrate and rejoice together for everything God has done for us. We aught to be overwhelmed with the deepest sense of awe that God would send His Son to pay the penalty of our sins. As a follower of Christ, we are to partake of The Lord’s Supper in the remembrance of the Lord. As we do, we are proclaiming His redemptive death on our behalf.

The death of Jesus reveals:

  1. The awfulness of sin (1 Corinthians 15:3)
  2. The greatness of God’s love for sinners (John 3:16, Romans 5:8)
  3. The value of a lost soul

As we consider the death of Jesus, there is one thing we cannot do. We cannot leave Jesus in the tomb. Remember, He has risen and is in Heaven! 

“The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!” John 1:29 NIV

Message: You Don’t Have to Guess… Take the Test

Don’t assume anything. Don’t jump to conclusions. It can be very dangerous when it comes to salvation and eternity. In our text today (1 Corinthians 11:23-30) Paul was telling the Corinthians to take a spiritual test to examine their own heart. I challenge you today to examine yourself spiritually. Eternity is a long time to be wrong. What is your spiritual temperature? Are you hot or cold? Are your spiritual arteries clogged with sin? Are you nourishing yourself with God’s word? Come to the best doctor and his name is Jesus. Don’t gamble with your soul. Trust Jesus. 


  1. What do you believe with?
      Romans 10:9-10
☐ Heart ☐ Head
  2. What do you trust in?
       Ephesians 2:8-9
☐ Grace ☐ Works
  3. How did you feel when you were saved?
       Proverbs 28:13
☐ Humble ☐ Proud
  4. What is your chief goal in life?
       1 John 2:15-17, Matthew 6:33
☐ To serve God ☐ To serve yourself
  5. Who do you love?
       1 John 3:14-15
☐ God and all others ☐ God and some

March 25, 2018 Palm Sunday | Carl McCray, Pastor

Living in the Present (John 12:12-16)

On this Palm Sunday, the faith family of Burgin Baptist Church celebrated with the observance of the Lord’s Supper. When you think about Palm Sunday, this was an important event in the journey of Jesus. Everyone wanted to hear and see the Miracle Worker, the Messiah. Jesus road into town on a donkey, which in that day and time, symbolized that He came in peace. It was misunderstood. He didn’t come to use force or shed the blood of others. He came, not to conquer the political powers or government authority, but to conquer death, hell, and the grave. He came to bring peace.

Sometimes, like the disciples back then, we don’t understand the significance of what God is doing. Rest assured, God is working out His perfect plan. What God wants us to learn today is to live in the present. Make it your choice every day, every moment to trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. We may not understand what is happening, but what we must do is live in the present and trust in Him.

“At first his disciples did not understand all this. Only after Jesus was glorified did they realize that these things had been written about him and that these things had been done to him.”   – John 12:16 NIV

Sermon: Memory Can Be A Good Thing (Luke 22:14-20)

Observance of Baptism and The Lord’s Supper

Memory can be a good thing! We celebrate The Lord’s Supper to remember.  Remembering has significance.

  1. Historical significance
  2. Redemptive significance
  3. Personal significance

BaptismJune 4, 2017 was a wonderful day for celebrations and remembering! We, as a faith family, witnessed and celebrated the baptisms of some new believers. We also celebrated The Lord’s Supper in remembrance of what Jesus did for all of us. Jesus said in Luke 22:19, “do this in remembrance of me.” As followers, we are to partake of the Lord’s Supper. As we partake, we are remembering the sacrifice of Jesus, His shed blood, His resurrection, that He is reigning, and He is the soon returning King! It is also a time for each of us to examine our own life (not our neighbors, coworkers or family) and repent of our sin.

“And he [Jesus] took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.” – Luke 22:19
