Jesus said many are on the pathway to destruction while few find the narrow path to life in Matthew 7:13-14. Together we discover how to find and walk on the narrow path with Jesus!View Sermon
Paul charged Timothy to “do the work of an Evangelist.” As Christians we are a “Royal Priesthood” from a “Holy Nation” called to declare the Gospel of Jesus and the love of God to all. How then can we accomplish this mission if we continually fall for divisive rhetoric and seek to be separated from our neighbors? Our ultimate allegiance is to Christ and as Lord He has commanded us to “preach the gospel to all creation.”View Sermon
Jesus said “blessed are the peacemakers for they will be called Children of God” in Matthew 5:9. Last week we discussed shedding our Earthly labels in favor of our unifying Heavenly label; Christian. This week we take a deeper look into the qualities of a true Christian, and what leads to one being a biblical “Child of God.”View Sermon
In a world of labels being used to divide us, Black & White, Male & Female, Republican & Democrat, Protestant & Catholic…. we have one label that matters above all others, one that is used to unify us; Christian.
“There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus” – Galatians 3:28 ESV
In a culture becoming increasingly divisive, Christian culture ought to be increasingly inclusive; welcoming all people from all races, professions, political affiliations, sexes, sexual orientations, and religions to come and experience the love of Jesus. When Christ becomes our identity, we can break through barriers and stand up for justice for all people.View Sermon
St. Peter said one ought to be “diligent to confirm your calling and election.” The Apostle Paul said one ought to “examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith.” Being willing to “examine” ones actions and “confirm” ones salvation is a monumental step towards spiritual maturity. For if one is found to be lacking in an area, they now have the opportunity to address their weaknesses and overcome them by the help of the Holy Spirit. Together we’ll discover how to “self review” your faith and how to take steps towards spiritual maturity.View Sermon
