Sermons from July 2016

Here’s the Church, Here’s the Steeple

Like the early church, we will become fully devoted followers of Christ by leaning into the presence of God, have authentic community, and share the great story of the Gospel of Jesus Christ with others.

Why We Are to Love One Another

Sermon #12 in the series “The Epistles of John” – Because God is love and because we are the recipients of His love, the plain duty of Christians is to love one another.

Identification, Friend or Foe

Sermon #11 in the Series “The Epistles of John” – When confronted with people who claim to teach spiritual truth, those who belong to the community of faith (because of the Holy Spirit’s indwelling) are to do two things: examine the content of their message in light of the consistent and orthodox Christology taught by the apostles, and examine the character of the audience that listens to their message.

Self-Sacrificial Love is the Proof

Sermon #9 from the series: “The Epistles of John” (Scripture Reference: 1 John 3:10-18). Sermon in Sentence – “Unlike the world who follows the example of Cain and his father the devil by giving evidence of spiritual death through hatred and murder, true children of God follow the example of Christ by loving others self-sacrificially, thereby giving evidence of eternal life.”
