Show Notes

Chris Wall • Acts 1:4-11

The resurrection of Christ changed the world. The resurrection of Christ changed our world. However, when you think about those historical events that took place in the First Century, it is puzzling that God's plan from the beginning was for Jesus to bodily leave the earth. At first glance, it seems like a strange plan.  In all reality, the ascension of Christ is a key hinge moment in the plan of God. It is the fact that the ascension took place that helps us understand the totality of the work of Christ. 

This Easter, we are going to celebrate one of the greatest resurrection encounters in Scripture. It is an encounter that is not only fascinating to consider on an Easter Sunday, it is an encounter that helps us get ready for that critical meeting on the calendar of every person to have ever been born. This message will help us all get ready to see God face to face.

Becoming the People of God

Chris Wall • Nehemiah 8 ESVDuring the time of Nehemiah, God's people CAME TOGETHER to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem in 52 days.

Through these relationships they restored the city from rubble to repaired. These relationships provided security and safety against opposition as families became protectors of their community. These relationships gave tithes and forgave debts. These relationships provided the context for spiritual growth and commitment to the Lord. When you step back and look at Nehemiah 8, this is the type of community you and I need in our lives. We need to be a part of a fully devoted, ever-committed group of people who are sold out to God's word and God’s purposes. God provides key people to play key roles in life to ensure spiritual growth. God is using His Word and the gift of our church family to help us live today as the people of God. ...

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.   ...
