God’s Greatness Made Known, Even in Apostasy

August 2, 2020 | Series: Special. Scripture: John. Speakers: Jason Donaldson.

John 13:21-31

Sensational “deconversion stories” make the news, and seemingly threaten to undermine the faith.  The Bible teaches us better than that.  Certainly, it warns us to expect it and to guard against it.  But it also shows us how great our God is, and how he glorifies himself even in the most egregious example of apostasy in history.

The Three Loves of the Church

June 7, 2020 | Series: Special. Scripture: John and Mark. Speakers: Pastor Bob Ray.

Mark 12, John 13

God sent Jesus to earth and to the cross for us to mend our broken relationship with Him.  God did for us what we could not do for ourselves.  As we respond to the love of God, each of us seeks to love God back with all our heart, soul, strength, and mind.  We seek to love Him supremely above everything and everyone else.  Then as we love God supremely, we love our brothers and sisters in Christ as Jesus has loved us and live in community with them so the world will see us this and know that we are Jesus’ disciples.  Finally, because we love God supremely and live in community with each other, we are also filled with love for our neighbors. Who is our neighbor? Our neighbors are anyone whom God places in our paths whose need we can meet in Jesus’ name.  All around us are our neighbors who need to know the love of God and be drawn into these relationships. Following Jesus is all about our relationships: with God, each other and those whose needs we can meet in Jesus’ name.

God Speaks

December 29, 2019 | Series: Special. Scripture: John. Speakers: Joel Carter.

John 1:1-18

In this sermon we look at what the birth of Christ means as seen in John 1. John describes Christ as the “Word,” as the bearer of “light,” as as the “Word” that became “flesh.” These descriptors can show us much about Christ’s coming and make us grateful for the way God has spoken into our lives.
