Gospel Centered Proclamation
In a world filled with uncertainties, challenges, and shifting values, it's essential for us as believers to stand firm in our faith. Join us for an enriching study of the book of 1 Peter, where we will explore the timeless wisdom and encouragement it offers to empower us in our journey of faith.
In this captivating sermon series, "Stand Firm," we will embark on a transformative expedition through the teachings of the Apostle Peter. Through his heartfelt words, we will discover how to find unwavering strength, resilience, and hope amidst trials and tribulations.
Hearing the voice of God and seeing his hand at work can be difficult in the midst of crisis. Yet the prophetic voice of Isaiah is as relevant now in 2020 as it was over two thousand seven hundred years ago. Whether it's national turmoil, global pandemic, political division, financial downfall or personal crisis--God is sovereign and works all things for His glory.
Deadly pandemic. Social strife. Political division. Everywhere you look, the world is in trouble and experiencing very hard times. The good news is, we have the hope that people are searching for – and it’s only found in Jesus.
What does it mean to be live out as the people of God in the kingdom of Heaven? Matthew's gospel opens with three chapters containing Jesus' longest recorded message – a sermon given to His disciples early in His ministry to articulate what the life of a Christ-follower would look like. The Sermon on the Mount is the most complete delineation in the New Testament of the Christian counter-culture. We are going to study what life in the Kingdom of God is, fully human but lived under the divine rule of Jesus.
We live in a fallen world full of people with sinful human natures. As a result, we are a broken people fractured by past hurts, emotional wounds and traumatic experiences. But the good news is that God can bring genuine restoration in our whole personhood of spirit, soul and body (1 Thessalonians 5:23-24). It is God alone who can work wonderfully to bring "... a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair" (Isaiah 61:3).
Have you ever said something that you wish you can take back? Whether it's gossip, lying, cursing, slander, or keeping a secret--taming the tongue is no easy task. James the half brother of Jesus, describes the tongue as a restless evil full of deadly poison (3:8). Let's turn to James 3:1-12 and discover with God's help how we can manage our mouths.
There is no better way to start the year than seeking God through prayer and fasting! If you desire breakthrough in your life please join our church-wide campaign of connecting to God in prayer and disconnecting from the world in fasting. Let's be expectant for God to show up and show off!
There are so many things crowding out Christ in our life that this year we setting our hearts to set aside everything that would take up space from what matters most. The Inn in Bethlehem isn’t the only thing that had no room for Jesus during the Holiday Season. When we make room, God will accept our invitation. Join us this Christmas Season for an Advent Series on watchfully waiting for Jesus.
