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 Holy Spirit is there to make a change in people’s lives, just as light changes darkness and salt change food. You want to be a…

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 power from God to say no to sin and yes to righteousness, a power to do what is right in the face of the pressure…

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 and women serve different roles in God’s kingdom, we are all one in Christ. Because we are God’s children, we are changed for eternity. Scriptures: Luke…

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 we shared Jesus like this? Imagine the impact that the Good News of Jesus would have on your family, your community, and the…

United

The church is always threatened by divisions—race, income, gender, age, etc. God’s powerful words opened Peter’s mind to the bigness of God’s Church. Could God bring rich and poor, male and female, black and white, young and old into one community of faith today?

Qualified

“Christian-killer” doesn’t seem impressive on an apostle’s resume. Yet, that is who Jesus chose to grow his Church. Paul was an unlikely candidate to become a Christian, much less an apostle of Christ. In the same way, you might consider yourself under-qualified for the mission of Jesus’ Church, but God loves to be glorified through unexpected servants. Acts 9:1-20

Steadfast through Persecution

Act II – Staying Steadfast through Persecution Stephen’s murder proves faithfulness leads to suffering. Yet, God was still at work in the suffering, bringing the gospel to new places, and fulfilling Acts 1:8 through Acts 8:1. In the same way, we don’t need to fear suffering and persecution, because we trust that Jesus’ name makes great gains through our pains. Scriptures: 1 Peter 5:1-4; John 10:11-18; Psalm 23 Sermon Text: Act 7:1-8:8 3

Emboldened

Peter’s Act I was marked by a cowardly denial of Christ. But his Act II was filled with a courageous sermon that launched the church into the first century. How? The same way that scared, timid Christians find the courage to boldly share the law and the gospel—by the Holy Spirit. Sermon Text: Act 2:1-47

Transformed

Jesus gave a mission to his followers left on earth to share the good news with all creation and proclaim Jesus as King. In the same way, the Ascended Jesus is sending every member of his Church on a mission to transform lives through the message of his grace. Acts 1:1-11
church, Franklin, WI, Act 2

Easter

Jesus’ resurrection changes… everything! The message of Easter changes… everything! Luke 26:9-15

Christ Alone: Accept No Substitute

We are naturally prone to put our hope and faith in the things and the people of this world. Yet, there is only One who can help and save us from any and every calamity of body and soul. Sermon Text:  Acts 4:1-12
