  • May The Circle Be Unbroken

    Contributed by Kevin Ruffcorn on May 6, 2018
     | 785 views

    Paul is imprisoned, yet he is thankful. He doesn’t glory in his circumstances, but he does celebrate the relationship that he has with the Christians in Philippi and their partnership in the gospel with him. We too can celebrate this partnership.

    Philippians 1:1-18a. “May the Circle be Unbroken” INTRODUCTION The focus of our attention changes this week from the Book of Acts to Paul’s letter to the Philippians. With that change of focus comes a change of topics. In the Book of Acts we were focused on the work of the Holy Spirit in ...read more

    How will you honor Christ and be a part of your church in the New Year? If we won’t reach out, or if we won’t work together to do reach others, we've become an exclusive, limiting club filled with Pharisees … which is dangerous ground to be on!

  • The Benefits Of Imprisonment Series

    Contributed by Ken Henson on Oct 17, 2016
     | 1,116 views

    When our base drives are confined by the shackles of God’s love, they are morphed into rockets of exploration. I believe Paul and Timothy invite us to join them in prison and slavery, and, thereby, to become agents of unimaginable liberation.

Boethius was imprisoned probably because of his immense influence on the thinking of the general population. While there, he ...read more

Paul is bound in a Roman prison, awaiting trial, facing accusations regarding his faith. He is no longer free to go and ...read more

  • Elders And Deacons

     | 1,635 views

    The New Testament provides instruction on how the Lord wants His Church to be governed. Two offices are to be found in each mature congregation - Elders and Deacons. This is a brief look at these two offices.

    1. When Paul wrote his Letter to the congregation at Philippi, he addressed it to “all the saints in Christ Jesus who are in Philippi, including the overseers and deacons” (Philippians 1:1). This verse (with others from the New Testament) indicate that when completely and ...read more
