The celebration of Pentecost commemorates the arrival of the Holy Spirit, the helper Jesus promised would come after his ascension. Trinity Sunday is celebrated to give the church a fuller understanding of the Triune God; God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. What did these events mean to the early believers in Jesus’ day? What purpose did they serve? Are they still relevant today?
A prophecy of personal, social, and theological ills existing not only in the larger world of the prophet of the same name but in his own country of Judah and neighboring Israel. As we look at the specific sins that are addressed, you will be shocked at the cruelty of them but you may also feel how relevant this is for today. Learn with us.
We celebrate the greatest one-time event that ever happened. But that one event has unlimited influence in every life ever born. Jesus lives today! There is no statement of hope more powerful than this. We can die to sin and live for God because He lives. We can be free from bondage because He lives. We can escape despair because He lives. We can be loved by Jesus today, right now, because He lives today, right now.
The Prayer Series will address lies and truths about prayer. Each week we will look at a false notion about prayer that is oftentimes used as an excuse to avoid praying. Then we will study the Scriptural truth that contradicts that lie. So in response to the list above, these messages are not purposed to make you feel guilty. We believe we will all learn something new. We know that God wants to take us on a journey with Him that is anything from boring. And truth be told, we could take more than four weeks to study the Word of God on this topic.
Please listen to what the Holy Spirit says to you personally about how to overcome the lies and practice the truth about prayer. Because we believe prayer is the primary work of God's people.
We will read, understand, and apply the shortest books in the Bible– Obadiah, Philemon, 2 & 3 John, and Jude. They are the most infrequently read books, but they are in the canon of Scripture—the collection of books we call the Bible—for a reason.
We will talk about God's heart for His church in 2019. You've heard it said that our vision is to live life to the fullest by knowing God, developing community and bringing hope. But what does that actually mean? Why is it so important? We will share what God's word has to say about each of the three aspects: Knowing God, Developing Community and Bringing Hope.
Learn why we go. Take a risk. The world needs Jesus. Join us. Pray. Give. Go.
Did you know there were five Christmas songs dealing with the birth of Jesus that were never set to music? Those five songs are the focus of this series. We remember the birth of a Savior. We exalt the coming of a King. We worship the Provider of forgiveness and eternity.
There is one message, and only one message, that will bring people to realize the forgiveness of sin and life to the fullest in Jesus. And that message is called the gospel– the finished work of Christ on the cross and his life giving resurrection.
Simply profound. Vastly personal. Invisibly present.
Reading, Understanding and Applying the book of Malachi
Have you ever wondered what God thinks about the movies? Can His truth be found at the theater? "God at the Box Office" attempts to answer these questions. We don't preach the film nor do we even recommend viewing it. We simply try to understand the values communicated and then hold them up to the light of Biblical truth. Sometimes we're surprised by what we learn.
