How to Grow

November 27, 2016
Using the story of Jesus washing the disciples' feet, guest speaker David Olson gives us three steps for growth in the Christian life: posture, grace and action.
Worship is NOT about WHERE, WHEN, or WHAT FORMAT. Worship at its essence is not about external acts; worship is valuing God above all things, with your mind and heart. (audio…
The church is meant to BOTH “do the work of the gospel” and “believe the truth of the gospel.” The truth of Christ includes: Christ is God in bodily form.…
Christ is the head of the Church. Elders and deacons are appointed servant-leaders. God qualifies both, based on character. All church leaders serve awaiting the appearing of the Chief Shepherd,…
Paul tells us how to "be the Church". We are to maintain and appreciate Biblical leadership. We should live in peace and unity with one another. Being consistent in gratitude and…

Ruth 3

August 28, 2016
Naomi continues to try to manipulate circumstances, while Ruth and Boaz act with integrity and godliness. Boaz agrees to be the kinsman redeemer, even as Christ has done for us.
We tackle the pressing question in Ruth: Is God both good and sovereign in the midst of evil, pain and calamity? Romans 8:28 The conclusion is that a complete redemption…
