Philippians 1:1-8. Today, we begin a new series on the book of Philippians, a letter written by Paul and Timothy to the church in Philippi. Paul uses the introduction of this letter to express his great thankfulness and joy for them and his intense longing for them.
Matthew 28:5-7. The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.”
We celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Savior with a short message followed by testimony and baptism.
Palm Sunday. Easter week is a wonderful opportunity to reflect on the work of Jesus Christ during his last earthly week of ministry. Today we focus on some of the different sufferings of Jesus.
2 Timothy 2:1-10. In Paul’s second letter to Timothy, Paul gives his marching orders to his young protege. He tells Timothy to share in suffering as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. Today, we discuss what that means and how to do it.
John 14:2-3. God makes many promises to those who follow Him. In the person of Jesus Christ, He promises that He is preparing a room for them and that He, Himself will be coming back to bring them there to be with Him. Why are we so slow to share this good news with those to whom this promise has not yet been made?
2 Corinthians 5:11-17. What are the practical implications that come from being an ambassador for Christ? How do we know if we are qualified for His service? Today, the qualifications are listed and the story of Jonah is reviewed to learn the effects of a believer’s response to their call to follow.
Matthew 28:18-20. The command to a disciple is to go with the intent of making more disciples. Today we break down this command to make disciples while we are encouraged by the Lord’s words about himself.
Matthew 28:18-20. The Great Commission is a familiar and often quoted command from the Bible as it should be. It is the command of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. Disciples of Jesus are to go and make more disciples of Jesus. Today we deepen our understanding of what a disciple is so that we are prepared to take heed to this command.
2 Corinthians 5:17. When the gospel of Jesus Christ is received by faith it transforms the recipient. Those who believe in Christ become a new creation. Today we look at twelve gifts that come from being made new.
Romans 10:9-10. How can a sinner be saved? There must be an transformation of the evil heart within him. This transformation by grace through faith in the work of Jesus Christ. This inner transformation will lead to outward expressions and confessions of that faith. A sinner is saved by trusting in Jesus.
Ephesians 2:8-9. God has provided a way for sinners to be reconciled to Himself. We are reminded today that this way, His Son Jesus Christ, is given to us as a gift to be received by faith. There is no work that man can do to attain salvation. He simply must believe.
Romans 5:8. Our study this morning is put together to answer these three question about the verse: How does this verse prove God has love for us? How does this verse prove the greatness of the love God has for us? What does this love do for us?
Romans 6:23. Last week we learned that all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. That is not news to any of us. We are ready enough to admit that. Today’s message is a little harder to swallow. But as we look at the big picture we see that it is absolutely necessary for us to hear the hard part of the Good News.
Romans 3:23. There are many ways that we can love our neighbor. There are many physical, emotional, and relational provisions that we can supply for our neighbor’s needs. All of these things are good, but they are temporal. At the forefront of our minds and hearts must be their greatest need. Today we learn that everyone’s greatest need is the same and it’s eternal. Sin has separated us from God. But Jesus has brought salvation!
Luke 10:25-37. Today we review the method of Love Listen Discern and Respond used by the Time to Revive team. This method is taught to the gathering before they go into the streets.
Before the method can be used properly there must be a compassion in our hearts for those who do not know the Lord. We review the story of the Good Samaritan in order to self assess our own walk and ask ourselves the question, “Are we proving to be neighbor?”
Eric uses this morning to review the method used by the Time to Revive team that joined the county in December. This method is not the only way to minister to our community, but it is a good one. After reviewing the method, Eric tells us where we are headed as a church to be equipped to go and make disciples.
2 Corinthians 5:16-6:2. Reconciliation with God begins with our believe in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. That leads to not only reconciliation, but also to new birth. Along with this new birth comes this passion for sharing the treasure of the gospel with the rest of the world.
This morning we celebrate the greatest gift given to all of mankind. God has given us himself through the birth of His Son Jesus Christ. What makes this gift so special? We discuss that this morning. Merry Christmas!
2 Corinthians 5:11-15. Why is it that we go out and tell of the good news? What is it that drives us? As a church we have been reminded this week, through the encouragement of Revive Ohio, that this going out and persuading others should be a lifestyle controlled by the love of Christ.
2 Corinthians 5:1-10. Paul uses this section of the letter to compare the earthly tent that our bodies are now to the heavenly bodies that are to come for those who trust in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. We are fix our thoughts and hopes on what is to come rather than the tent that we are in now.
We also get to listen to a testimony and witness a baptism.
