Sermon Series

For My Friend to Know Jesus...

For My Friend to Know Jesus All of us live and work surrounded by unbelievers. We cannot escape being with them. You go to the doctor's office and the person next to you in the waiting room may be an unbeliever. You go to a family reunion... chances are you will meet an unbeliever. At school, in the factory or office, out on the job site, in the park or at the mall or the auto dealership or grocery store... they are all around us and they need the Lord Jesus. In keeping with MBC's 2011 theme of “Open hearts… Open hands” we want to discover how we can help our friends know Jesus. Our teacher will be the Apostle John and his classroom will be mostly the first four chapters of the Gospel according to John. John's goal as an evangelist is to bring people to faith in Christ so that they have eternal life. Evidence... belief... life is the outline of his book. John 20:30-31 summarizes his Gospel account:

30 Now Jesus did many other signs in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book; 31 but these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in His name.

John's strategy for leading our friends to Christ...

The Faces of Giving (Stewardship Series)

Face of Giving Biblical stewardship comes alive when we see it in action. Our annual month-long study in stewardship will give us front row seats to people practicing different levels of giving. We are going to learn what tithe-giving is and how offering-giving works. We will also come away with a better understanding of generosity-giving and discover the real meaning of sacrificial-giving. Let's pray together that God will transform our perspective of life-giving.

Church 101: What the Church Should Be!

1 Timothy “Everyone has ideas on what church should be. What shapes people's expectations of church? Where do people get their ideas of what a church ought to be?" They can range from what grandma told them to what the latest church fad may be. The impact of so many diverse ideas about church is weakening the influence of the body of Christ on the world and its own people. Kevin DeYoung & Ted Kluck in their book Why We Love the Church make the following observation about what C. S. Lewis called “Chronological Snobbery.”

“The phrase refers to the all-too-common tendency among Christians to quickly discount what is old and automatically embrace what is new…Although there is much talk these days about our lack of Christian community…the one community we seldom look to for wisdom is the community of the dead. Being inclusive toward the communion of the saints—who represent different centuries, different cultures, and different contexts-seems to be the one type of diversity that doesn’t count.”

So… where does one go to discover what church should be? And why is such a question vitally important to 21st century people? The obvious answer to the first question is the Scripture itself. And the answer to the second question will become readily apparent as we move through our study together on the book of I Timothy. Join us for an eye-opening expositional journey through Paul’s first letter to Timothy called: "Church 101: What the Church should be!”

Why Christmas?

Why Christmas WHY did Jesus come into this world? If you were in a wonderful place, why would you leave it to go to a land where you were mostly unknown and unwanted? Your life there would be short, but full of trials and days of teaching. And worst of all, you would know your fate and that the end wouldn't be pretty. Why Christmas? Why would we celebrate the coming of one who seemed to experience one tragedy after another? What is all the hype about the coming of Christ? We are going to discover together from God's Word why Jesus came. There are 4 powerful and incredible reasons why Jesus came. These reasons affect every human being on the face of the earth - you and I included. When you know the reasons, you can never be the same. Join us as we explore an answer to the question: "WHY CHRISTMAS?"
