Peace, Not Tolerance

In order to achieve peace, we often compromise. Even though we don’t agree with someone’s viewpoint or actions, we tolerate it because we want to keep the peace. We tolerate our circumstances, but we aren’t content in them. True peace comes from God, from immersing ourselves in his promises and knowing that his love for…

Joy, Not Pleasure

When our favorite sports teams win, we celebrate. When we complete a major project, we are ecstatic. As we monitor our bank accounts, we find satisfaction when we see the amounts increase. These experiences are full of happiness and pleasure. But we don’t have to feel happy and pleased to experience joy. Joy comes from…

Love, Not Lust

The world uses “love” as a term to describe how we feel about everything from food to TV shows to other people. In this context, love is conditional; our feelings of love change based on circumstances and what we think about these circumstances. They are often feelings of lust, desiring after a person based on physical attraction. The love that Jesus has for us, that he showed us on the cross, is never-failing. This unconditional love is what we strive to show those around us. Sermon Text: Galatians 5:16-26

Change Agents for Christ

A church building may exist at a specific mailing address, but the Church doesn’t end when the property line does or after Sunday services. You are not only a recipient of reconciliation but an ambassador of Christ, to seek and save the lost. As we build relationships with family, community, culture, and even strangers, the…

Changed Through Baptism

Baptism isn’t just ceremony; it is a sacred act in which God either brings a person to faith or strengthens faith, adopts the person into his family, forgives sins, makes a person a temple of the Holy Spirit, makes heirs of eternal life, and changes a person’s eternal destiny. Remember your baptism: it gives you…

How Jesus Changed the World View of You

Jesus viewed women as image bearers of God and so he treated them as such. Jesus met the woman at the well and appeared to the women first after his resurrection. Women played a significant support role in Paul’s ministry; Priscilla helped, supported, encouraged, and taught the apostle Paul. Here’s the bottom line: although men…

Change The Way You Think Of The Church

Reaching milestones in life, such as Confirmation, warrants celebration. But often, these milestones are just the beginning to a new journey. The Holy Spirit works through the Word to bring all of us along the path of maturity. Because of this, we grow in faith and our relationship with Christ every time we engage in God’s Word, making us stronger disciples of Christ and growing the church as a whole. Acts 2:1-4

What If…We Spread the Good News?

After Jesus ascended into Heaven, the disciples were lost. They huddled in an upstairs room, trying to figure out what to do next. And then… a miracle! They were filled with the Holy Spirit, inspired anew to share the good news. The book of Acts tells us that 3,000 people came to faith that day.…

What If…Jesus Is Alive?

Have you every been lost? There’s physically lost – like when you wander around a foreign place, and then there’s spiritually lost – like the disciples were feeling on the road to Emmaus. After Jesus was crucified, they lost all hope. They forgot everything Jesus told them about what would happen next. When we forget…

What If…We Were Debt Free

“It is finished.” These last words of Jesus are about more than the end of his life on earth. This sentence means that Jesus gave up his life for you. Although he was perfect, he suffered death for your sins. You could never sacrifice enough to pay for your sins, but Jesus paid the debt…
