In week eleven of our series "Man of Suffering, God of Peace," we talked about the end not being here yet from Mark 13:14-23. Jesus warns us because He is gracious and we reject the warnings of Jesus by placing hopes in things other than Jesus who is our only true hope.

He is Risen | Apr. 16, 2017

We celebrated an empty tomb and a risen Savior this Easter Sunday. The resurrection of Jesus changes how we relate to everything. Think about it. If Jesus really did get out of the grave, then the way that we approach God, our relationships, and our city all change. Not one aspect of our lives is left untouched by Jesus' victory over death, Hell, and the grave.

An Unexpected King | Apr. 9, 2017

We started off Holy Week 2017, with a Palm Sunday sermon entitled, "An unexpected King." We learned how Jesus came as an unexpected King, bringing an unexpected salvation. More often than not,  people approach Jesus with expectations based on things other than the scriptures even though it is the scriptures that authoritatively reveal Jesus.

Giving All | Apr. 2, 2017

In week nine of our series "Man of Suffering, God of Peace," we talked about giving all from Mark 12:41-44. Jesus highlights a poor widow's giving as an example for the disciples on what giving looks like. The lesson Jesus was teaching them was that giving by faith is to hold nothing back.

The Greatest Commandment | Mar. 19, 2017

In week seven of our series "Man of Suffering, God of Peace," we talked about the greatest commandment. Jesus summed up the entire law in two commandments, love God and love people.

Debating the Resurrection | Mar. 12, 2017

In week six of our series "Man of Suffering, God of Peace," we talked about how we cannot know God if we reject resurrection. Because Jesus is the resurrection and our union with Him cannot be ended even by death, we can believe in the promises of God and walk in His power.

Giving Properly to Ceasar | Mar. 5, 2017

In week five of our series "Man of Suffering, God of Peace," we talked about how God desires for us to interact faithfully with the unbelieving and often hostile world. We are able to do this because Jesus is to be trusted rather than tested.

Caring for the Vineyard | Feb. 26, 2017

In week four of our series "Man of Suffering, God of Peace," we talked about how God wants us to be righteous tenants of the "vineyard" He has placed us in. As righteous tenants, we should defend, develop, and deliver fruit for the Kingdom of God.
