Reaching People For Christ

Matthew 5:13-14 “13 You are the salt of the earth……  14 You are the light of the world..…  “ What you say and do can  affect your circle of influence. Like a pebble thrown into a pond, the ripple effects spread out all around. Your words, your actions are like the ripple effects. If you have received God’s amazing grace, you would want to share this to everyone, as much as you can.   .  

Can You Relate? Building Healthy Relationships with Friends and Family

We continue our series this week all about relationships.  In this lesson, we learn that conflict is inevitable, and as Christians we have the responsbility to be peacemakers.  Part 1 of 2, we discuss in depth the first two steps to take in order to become a peacemaker – Prepare and Meet – by using the books of James, Matthew, and Ephesians.

Can You Relate? Building Healthy Relationships with Friends and Family

We start a new series this week all about relationships. Although they are hard to do well, we learn how healthy relationships are critical to having a healthy life (physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually). And despite the fact we are flawed, we are called to – and able to – have healthy relationships with both God and others.

God Sex and Marriage: By God’s Design Marriage is Two Becoming One

In this series, we tackle the controversial topic of what exactly the Bible says about God, Sex, and Marriage. This week, we further discuss how marriage means two becoming one, and thinking of marriage as a covenant, not a contract. Ephesians 5:21 and Philippians 2:1-8 tell us that marriage is the making of one out of two through self-denial, service, accountability, and forgiveness.  And it is this type of transformative relationship that shows us marriage should not be thought of…

God, Sex, and Marriage: Marriage and Singleness

In this series, we tackle the controversial topic of what exactly the Bible says about God, Sex, and Marriage. This week, we further discuss what it means to be created, integrated sexual beings, and how that relates to being married and single. Genesis 1:27-28 tells us that being a “sexed creation”, or not sexless, is a good thing, and by having cross-gendered relationships (whether as a friendship or as a unique, selective romantic relationship), we deeply enrich our lives with…

God, Sex, and Marriage: Two Sexes: God’s Design. God’s Gift

In this new series, we tackle the controversial topic of what exactly the Bible says about God, Sex, and Marriage. In this opening message, we learn that it is a complex subject, but the important thing is to keep God as the foundation for how we determine our attitudes towards sex and marriage. We examine Genesis to learn that God is the designer and creator of sex and that He made two sexes. However, we live in a disordered world…

2018 is Going to be Great: Obedience Leads to Intimacy

New Year’s Resolutions may be hard to keep, but pleasing God is one goal that we can all do. Romans 5:8 tells us that we please the Lord simply by being His children, and 1 John 5:1-3 says that we obey God because He is our loving Father. But what does obedience do for us? John 14:15-24 tells us that obedience enriches our relationship with the Lord because obedience leads to intimacy. It is an intentional and natural result of…

2018 is Going to be Great: Why We Obey God

New Year’s Resolutions may be hard to keep, but pleasing God is one goal that we can all do. Romans 5:8 tells us that we please the Lord simply by being His children, so if we already please God, why should we obey Him? 1 John 5:1-3 tells us that since the Lord is our loving Father, obedience comes from a familial, not legalistic relationship. This means that when we obey God, this relationship with Him is enriched, not constrained.…
