Use It or Lose It

Use It or Lose It Our 2015 vision is about "Life Stewardship", the faithful management of God's property placed in the hands of a "believer in Christ."  Our aim is to grow together in "Life Stewardship" - learning the truth that 'if we don't faithfully use it [i.e. that over which we have been made stewards] we run the risk of losing it' [i.e. the fruit that comes from faithful management of God's gifts to us] - Thus, our theme: USE IT... OR LOSE IT!

Cutting It Straight

Cutting It Straight Our 2015 vision is about "Life Stewardship". Life stewardship in the church involves bringing belief and behavior together. Many believers are uncomfortably conscious that there is a gap between their commitment to the Lord Jesus and their practical day-by-day living. Paul writes to a young pastor about how to “cut it straight” in his church so that right belief and right behavior line up resulting in good stewardship in God’s church. Perhaps Titus 2:11-12 best summarizes this book’s theme:

“For the grace of God has appeared bringing salvation for all people, training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in the present age.”

Practicing stewardship in God’s church, which is His property, means that we serve and lead in the church according to God’s will and direction. We are not at liberty to “be the church” any old way we choose. Join us as we learn how to practice good stewardship with God’s church.

Temptation & Testing... In the Middle of Nowhere

Temptation

Stewardship series: Temptation & Testing… In the Middle of Nowhere”

All of us have temptations. William Perkins, the old Puritan writer observed that: "We fall on the right hand by temptations in prosperity, and we fall on the left, by temptations in adversity.” When we are tempted to sin against God and others we must realize our response is basically a stewardship response. Our bodies are the temples of the Holy Spirit. Our minds are to be fashioned after Christ’s way of thinking. We are bought with a price... we are not our own. So what we do with temptation tells the story, in part, of what kind of a steward we are over God’s property. The best way to approach the whole stewardship of temptation is to spend some time looking at the temptation of our Savior by Satan. The life of Christ was a warfare on earth…as is ours, for we who know Christ are identified with Him. By looking at His temptations we will learn how great is our God and how subtle is our enemy...even in the middle of nowhere!

It was Perkins again who made this bold assertion:

“We see the sea, not the “whale”[Jonah]; We see the Egyptian, not the salvation; We see the lion’s mouth, not Him that stops the lion’s mouth. If we could see God... as Elisha did, then we would say: ‘there are more with us, than there are against us.’ But because we do not, therefore at every assault, we say, as the servant to Elisha did: ‘Alas master, what shall we do?’ or like the disciples: ‘Carest thou not, master, that we perish?’”

Join us for a life-changing study of temptation against the backdrop of our Savior’s wilderness tests.

More Than a Story

Christmas 2015

“MORE THAN A STORY” - Christ is born

Jesus Christ came to this earth voluntarily and was born as a baby, grew up in what we know of as the Middle East and then at about 33 years of age was crucified on a cross. At Christmas time we think of His miraculous birth and the gift of love He expressed by coming here for us. But this is more than a story. His express purpose for coming here was to redeem human beings from the pressure of sin and the inevitable destiny that sin brings to all of us. During our Christmas series together we are going to discover the implications of Christ’s birth, life, and death. When you hear that it is more than a story, you will want to be written into His story! And He is willing to do just that. Come and discover why this is MORE THAN A STORY!!
