Series - Romans

The apostle Paul had never been to Rome when he wrote the letter to the Romans from the Greek city of Corinth in AD 57. Today it stands as the clearest and most systematic presentation of Christian principles in the Scriptures.

He began the letter by discussing the PROBLEM which is most easily observable in the world—the sinfulness of all humanity. All people have been condemned due to our rebellion against God.

He then moves to the PROVISION, as God in His grace offers us justification by faith in His Son, Jesus. When we are justified by God, we receive redemption, or salvation, because Christ’s blood covers our sin.

But Paul made it clear that the believer’s relationship with God doesn’t stop with salvation; it is a life-long PURSUIT of being transformed into Christ-likeness.

God With Us is a five-week series based on the Advent themes of Hope, Love, Joy and Peace – beginning Sunday, November 27th.  

A remarkable thing happened that first Christmas, just as Isaiah had prophesied 700 years earlier – Jesus was born as Immanuel – which means “God with us!” We believe Christmas can still truly give us a taste of the most wonderful time of world history. The true light came into the darkness and stress and pain of the world—our world. Miraculously, we continue in God’s story of love everyday as he promises to be with us always.  

In a season often marked by frenzied busyness, Advent is an opportunity to set aside time to prepare our hearts for the coming of Christ. The relevant messages in this series are designed to help us place our focus on the greatest gift ever given – and to experience His presence in our lives today.

Series - stories that changed the world

Almost one-third of Jesus’ teaching was done through story-telling or parables. A parable is a story used as a means to help reinforce the truth that is being taught.

But Jesus didn’t just tell stories to reveal a spiritual truth, although they certainly did that. He often used the unusual twists in the stories to catch the attention of the listener and jolt them into new ways of seeing things and calling them to action. In many cases, Jesus used parables to get people to agree to the truth before He revealed that it applied to them. In this nine-week series we will take a fresh look at some of these Stories That Changed the World.

Series - The God Questions

People today are looking for answers to life’s toughest questions – especially questions about God. According to recent Barna Team research (link below), even two-thirds of Christians have at some point experienced a time of spiritual doubt when they questioned what they believed about their religion or God. But many make it through stronger for having honestly faced their questions, especially when they have a community to guide them through it. At the end of the day, spiritual doubt can be a powerful and formative experience, strengthening and bolstering faith.

If you could ask God one question and know that you would receive an answer, what would you ask?

This series will focus on five questions people often have: How Can a Good God Allow Suffering? How Do I Know the Bible is True? How Can A Good God Send Anyone to Hell? Is Jesus Really the Only Way? And Doesn’t Science Contradict Faith?
