the CHURCH We believe that the church, which is the body and espoused bride of Christ, is a spiritual organism made up of all born-again persons (Ephesians 1:22, 23; 5:25–27; 1 Corinthians 12:12–14; 2 Corinthians 11:2). We believe that the establishment and continuance of local churches is clearly taught and defined in the New Testament […]
In Colossians 4.2-6, Paul outlines for us how we are always to be watchful in prayer for ourselves, one another, and that God might provide us with the an opportunity to preach the mystery of Christ. We are also informed as to how we should relate to those outside the walls of the church.
Colossians 3.12-17 Paul reminds the believers to be shrouded and covered by the love of God. This naturally flows to others.
In Colossians 1.24-29, Paul lays out what his burden is for the Church at Colossae, a people he has yet to see but has loved from afar.
Romans 7. The struggle for the believer is knowing and loving God, yet still stumbling into sin.
When Jesus comes to us, where are we going?
1 John 4:1-6. We are called to be discerning Christians in an age of information. But how exactly do we discern the spirits?
1 John 3:11-24. The Apostle John shows us the height of God’s love for us by Jesus laying down his life for us. The basis of God’s love is Jesus’ finished work on the cross, which gives us assurance of his faithfulness to keep our salvation.
1 Samuel 17. Often we read the story of David and Goliath and wrongly assume that we are the hero in the story. This leads to missing the point, Jesus is the hero of every story!
1 Corinthians 1-3. The church in Corinth was sliding off into two extremes: legalism and license. Paul brings them back to the gospel, where true unity and community is found.
