  • "The Kind Of Church I Want To Be Part Of – Part Three”

    Contributed on Oct 15, 2018
     | 65 views

    A look at the characteristics of the early church that need to be true of the church today.

    As we’ve said in this series already, there is no church on earth that has achieved perfection, but any church can head in the right direction. So we are looking at the characteristics of the early church in Acts chapter two, a church that was definitely headed in the right direction, to learn ...read more

    Looking to Acts 2 to learn from the example of the early church what a church looks like that is headed in the right direction.

    As we started this series on the kind of church I want to be part of, we said that we aren’t talking about finding the right church as much as we’re talking about what needs to be true of us to see our church head the right direction. While it’s impossible to find a church of perfection, we can be ...read more

    What does the example of the early church teach us about being the kind of church that's headed the right direction?

    Today, we’re going to look to the second chapter of the book of Acts to think together about church. I am calling this series, “The Kind of Church I Want to be Part of.” But I need to point out, that I am not talking about looking for the “perfect” church. “If I actually found the perfect church, ...read more

    We are called to serve God's purpose in our generation until our dying breath.

    We’ve been looking to Paul’s summary of the life of King David to learn principles that should guide us in the decisions we make in our life as individuals and as a congregation. We’ve said that we need to live our life serving God’s purpose of seeing His will be done on earth as it is done in ...read more

  • "Serving Our Generation”

    Contributed on Sep 18, 2018
     | 155 views

    Every believer has an obligation to pass along the faith to the next generation.

    Last time, we thought about serving God’s purpose. Today, let’s think about serving our generation. The Bible has a lot to say about one generation investing in the next. “One generation will declare your works to the next and will proclaim your mighty acts.” - Psalm 145:4 (CSB) “Let this be ...read more

    A fellow once made the remark that if he were God, he could certainly do things much better than God seemed to. For example, he said, if I were God I would not have caused the fruit of such a tremendous tree as the oak to be an acorn. Such a mighty tree needs to bear a much larger fruit, like a ...read more

    I took a piece of modeling clay; And idly molded it one day; And as my fingers pressed it still, It moved and yielded to my will. I came again when days were past; The piece of clay was hard at last. The shape I gave it still it bore; And I could change it nevermore. I took apiece of living ...read more

    We read in the papers, we hear on the air, Of killing and stealing, and crime everywhere. We sigh, and we say, as we notice the trend, "This young generation! Where will it all end?" But can we be sure that it’s their fault alone? That maybe most of it isn’t really our own ? Too much money to ...read more
