Because

Acts 4:12 Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to people by which we must be saved.” Ephesians 2:8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that […]

In One Accord

When Pentecost had come the disciples were in one accord. (Acts 2:1) The past few weeks we have been saying that if the church can shed its disunity and indifference it will become what Jesus designed it to be: an unstoppable missional and redemptive force that storms the “gates of hell” (Matthew 16:18) and transforms […]

Omni God

Introduction: Omni God When people are going through shaky times and looking for answers, we in the church, usually encourage them to trust God. After all, we qualify, “God is in control.” This most certainly is true, and we want folks to trust God, especially in times where it seems the entire world is flying […]

Is Your True Source God?

Psalm 18:2 The LORD is my rock, my fortress, and my savior; my God is my rock, in whom I find protection. He is my shield, the power that saves me, and my place of safety. It is “normal” to feel uncomfortable when things change. God can give you peace, security, and wisdom to navigate […]

Church Unite Now or Never

  John 17:20-22 20 “My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, 21 that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may […]

God

Introduction: God Too often I hear phrases and adjectives, (both inside and outside the Church) about God that are woefully inaccurate. So, what’s at stake in making sure we have accurate understandings of God? To name a few: loving him properly, worshiping him properly, and living for him properly. Jesus stated the greatest stake in […]

Fix It

People are born to conflict as surely as sparks fly upward. (Job 5:7) The violent storming of the Capitol building yesterday was undeniably reprehensible and horrific. It resulted in many injured, incredible property damage, and more tragically, at least one person dead. Just like the summer rioting, it also shook the national consciousness. Many politicians […]

Wisdom

Choose Wisely!  Proverbs 15:14 A wise person is hungry for knowledge, while the fool feeds on trash. “You are what you think.”  What do you think this means? We can actually have an appetite for knowledge, but not just learning whatever we can get our hands on.  The kind of knowledge that this verse is […]

Bringing in the New Year!

New Year! True Relationship!  First of all Happy New Year to everyone!  As we bring 2020 to an end lets reflect on our relationship with Jesus.  As a teenager I went to church every Sunday but I really didn’t realize what it meant to have a true relationship with Jesus.  As I was in my […]

The Bread of Life From the House of Bread

Introduction:  When God sent his “only begotten Son” he did so in a place aptly named as Bethlehem. As we saw last Sunday, Bethlehem, in the Hebrew language, means “House of Bread.” Historically speaking, the city itself was nothing to write home about. It wasn’t a preferred travel destination spot nor was it, “metro” or […]
