Light Has Come

Light Has Come

Chris Wall • Isaiah 9:1-7   The prophet Isaiah in both Chapter 8 and 9 discusses the reality of the human condition. The message of Christianity and the Bible communicates how things really are worse than they appear. People really are desperate for meaning and direction. The human situation really is hopeless, It really is darker than we care to admit. This is the honest truth and everyone really gets it when they think about it. However, in spite of this inescapable dark reality, the message of Christmas is that LIGHT has come from outside this world exposing the seriousness of the human condition while revealing the path to hope, peace, comfort and complete salvation. Light came into the world.      ...

Only Jesus

Only Jesus

Chad Balthrop • Hebrews 9:11-22   Fingerprints, facial recognition, and DNA - each provides a unique identifier that is built into your God-given design. Scripture shows us that the blood of Jesus is a unique identifier. By His blood, He enters the Holy of Holies. By His blood, He makes right what once went wrong. Through the Lord’s Supper, a group of Believers remembers His body and blood, broken and shed for His people. The Lord’s Supper becomes a unique identifier that draws His people together and reminds us of His forgiveness and grace. With this mark we remember - Only Jesus. ...

Walking Together

Walking Together

Chris Wall • Galatians 5:16-26 The gathered church is the God-ordained environment where the fruit of the Spirit is cultivated and the fruit of the flesh is defeated. For fruit to grow, the environment matters. Just as fruit cannot grow in every climate. The fruit of the Spirit is meant to grow in a specific setting. In the gathered church, there is a safety net of relationships, accountability, and resources. It is in the gathered church where we learn to overcome that internal battle of the flesh resulting in a life that walks by the Spirit.   ...

True Belief Equals...?

True Belief Equals...?

Misael Gonzalez • 2 Timothy 2:14-26   The things you say, do, or use are a window into the beliefs you hold about the world and the one who created it. What you truly believe influences what you truly practice. As children of God, we truly believe that He establishes a people to be set apart for a purpose that is much greater than our own. This challenges us to live in a manner worthy of the high calling of Jesus Christ. If we truly believe God is everything he says he is, it transforms everything we do with and for Him. ...

Your Whole Heart

Your Whole Heart

Chad Balthrop • Matthew 6:19-21   Who do you trust with your heart? We have a choice. You can invest your life in something that is temporary where time deteriorates and hurtful people take - OR - You can entrust your heart to something that is timeless. You can give yourself into the hands of the only one able to protect your heart from the ravages of time and the hurts of people. The position of your possessions becomes the condition of your heart.  ...

Membership Matters

Membership Matters

Chris Wall • 1 Corinthians 12:12-27   When Jesus established the church, he was not launching a building campaign. He was not describing an organization. He was not starting a business. He was describing an unstoppable force that he would personally build until the end of humanity. The gathered church is the body of Christ and this body fleshes itself out in a local context. Our congregation operates under the Lordship of Christ through an established process of self-governance. In our congregation, each member is responsible and accountable to Christ as Lord. Our scriptural officers are elders and deacons. In this passage, the church is identified as the body of Christ which includes all of the redeemed of all ages.  ...
