Baptist Faith

Chris Wall • 2 Corinthians 5:17-19 NIV Baptist Faith and Message 2000 – The Lord’s Supper is a symbolic act of obedience whereby members of the church, through partaking of the bread and fruit of the vine, memorialize the death of the Redeemer and anticipate His second coming. Christian baptism is the immersion of a believer in water in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. It is an act of obedience symbolic of the believer’s faith in a crucified, buried, and risen Savior, the believer’s death to sin, the burial of the old life, and the resurrection to walk in newness of life in Christ Jesus. ...

Will There Really be an End of the World?

Chris Wall • Matthew 24:3-8 ESV “God, in His own time and in His own way, will bring the world to its appropriate end.

Chad Balthrop • 1 Timothy 2:1-4 God alone is Lord of the conscience, and He has left it free from the doctrines and commandments of men which are contrary to His Word or not contained in it. Church and state should be separate. The state owes to every church protection and full freedom in the pursuit of its spiritual ends. In providing for such freedom no ecclesiastical group or denomination should be favored by the state more than others. Civil government being ordained of God, it is the duty of Christians to render loyal obedience thereto in all things not contrary to the revealed will of God. The church should not resort to the civil power to carry on its work. The gospel of Christ contemplates spiritual means alone for the pursuit of its ends. The state has no right to impose penalties for religious opinions of any kind. The state has no right to impose taxes for the support of any form of religion. A free church in a free state is the Christian ideal, and this implies the right of free and unhindered access to God on the part of all men, and the right to form and propagate opinions in the sphere of religion without interference by the civil power. ...

A Church that God Blesses

A Church that God Blesses

Chris Wall • Jude 1:1-4 NIV A New Testament church of the Lord Jesus Christ is an autonomous local congregation of baptized believers, associated by covenant in the faith and fellowship of the gospel; observing the two ordinances of Christ, governed by His laws, exercising the gifts, rights, and privileges invested in them by His Word, and seeking to extend the gospel to the ends of the earth. Each congregation operates under the Lordship of Christ through democratic processes. In such a congregation each member is responsible and accountable to Christ as Lord. Its scriptural officers are pastors and deacons. While both men and women are gifted for service in the church, the office of pastor is limited to men as qualified by Scripture. The New Testament speaks also of the church as the Body of Christ which includes all of the redeemed of all the ages, believers from every tribe, and tongue, and people, and nation. ...

The Skeleton in the Family Closet

The Skeleton in the Family Closet

Chris Wall • Genesis 38:1-6 NIV All Christians are under obligation to seek to make the will of Christ supreme in our own lives and in human society. means and methods used for the improvement of society and the establishment of righteousness among men can be truly and permanently helpful only when they are rooted in the regeneration of the individual by the saving grace of God in Jesus Christ. In the spirit of Christ, Christians should oppose racism, every form of greed, selfishness, and vice, and all forms of sexual immorality including adultery, homosexuality, and pornography. We should work to provide for the orphaned, the needy, the abused, the aged, and contend for the sanctity of all human life from conception to natural death. ...

The Family

The Family

Chris Wall • Genesis 2:18-24 NIV “God has ordained the family as the foundational institution of human society. A biblical family is brought together by marriage, blood, or adoption.” In this series “Asking for a Friend” I hear many friends asking questions around the idea of humanity, marriage, gender, and family. Of course, none of us have to look real hard to see how our culture is redefining family and gender roles. At our church, we embrace the authority of Scripture. Around here we want God’s word to stand. In fact, God’s word is so significant, it shapes our beliefs and our practices. I say this all the time, whenever I find a practice in my life that goes against Scripture, I am compelled to adjust my life to the word of God. Whenever I discover a belief that goes against the Bible, I am compelled to adjust my mind to what the Bible says. Many of our friends are questioning what a family should be? We need to be prepared not only to answer them, but we need to honor God even while living in a modern world with changing definitions. So, with this in mind, the question of the day is this: Is the family relationship established by God or is it a societal creation of man? ...
