    based on 63 ratings
     | 3,946 views

    An ecumenical service at the Mill Pond festival

    One Size Fits All Looking back, it’s hard to believe that we have lived as long as we have. I remember as a kid riding in cars with no air bags, no seat belts, and metal dashboards. We rode in the back of pickups. We had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, doors, or ...read more

  • When Shall We Be One?

     | 3,719 views

    Truth separates so we need a scorecard and denominations until we are Raptured.

    We sing the songs of Zion saying that we are one in the Spirit and one in the Lord and while we are marching we are not divided all one body we, but in practice we are not. We sing the ideals and walk in the stark reality. Paul emphasizes in Ephesians 4:4-6 the unity and oneness of the Church ...read more

  • When People Say We Don’t Need God

    Contributed by Paul Barreca on Nov 27, 2011
    based on 4 ratings
     | 5,074 views

    The TOWER of BABEL represents man’s effort without God. The Builders of Shinar failed in their attempt tried to reach heaven through human effort. We too will fail if we believe that spiritual enlightenment comes through human effort. The only way to k

    The battle for our worship is a battle that draws our flesh and its desire to exert itself over God. The flesh demands that it be stroked, satisfied and honored. The inner part of our being cries out for independence. From our earliest days we desire to do things for ourselves. But we cannot ...read more

  • Love In Large Denominations

    based on 3 ratings
     | 1,133 views

    We have ’Free Church Homecoming’ - an ecumenical service once a year. This sermon is an encouragement to go and to be the church universal, not just a congregation.

    I have a confession to make. I have not been looking forward to Free Church as I ought. I remember when I attended my first one eight years ago, I looked forward to it. But nowadays, sometimes it seems like it’s getting just a little bit old. It’s tempting to say that the idea has had its day and ...read more

  • Why I Am No Longer An Evangelical

    Contributed by Paul Barreca on Jun 2, 2008
    based on 29 ratings
     | 5,307 views

    The Evangelical movement has been slipping from its moorings for many years. I believe the departure from orthodoxy is now complete and it is time to separate ourselves from much that is proclaimed under the banner of “Evangelical Christianity.”

    Note carefully the indefinite article. This sermon will examine Evangelical the noun. I am not speaking about being evangelical. In that sense, the word evangelical is an adjective describing ones attitude toward sharing the gospel. I am not repudiating my Christian faith, but rather the ...read more

  • The Call To Genuine Unity Series

     | 3,354 views

    The call to unity extends to relationships within a Church fellowship, between Church fellowships, between different expressions of Church. Jesus prayed for unity. Will we cooperate with him to work for that unity? Since he prayed it what will we do about

    What is the difference between a spotlight and a laser beam? Why is it that a medium-powered laser can burn through steel in a matter of seconds, while the most powerful spotlight can only make it warm? Both may have the same electrical power requirements. The difference is unity! Now forgive me I ...read more

  • Christianity Is Exclusively Inclusive

    Is it right to say that Jesus is the ONLY way? Unless you deny the Word, you better preach the truth and He is the truth and the only way!

  • Week Prayer For Christian Unity 08

    based on 2 ratings
     | 1,483 views

    Full service for ecumenical service - Praying about unity is a waste of time if we do not work for unity too; we have to be people who value variety & difference in one another.

    Sermon for Trinity Sunday on the Holy Trinity and the unity of the Church.

    During the time of Oliver Cromwell, thousands of stained glass windows in English churches were destroyed, because the English puritans objected to objects of veneration, which they called ’abused images’. Of those stained glass windows that did survive, few were undamaged, and there was an ...read more

  • Family Ties Series

    Contributed by Alison Bucklin on Jul 9, 2011
    based on 1 rating
     | 1,937 views

    Everyone who calls on God the Father in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ is connected, willy-nilly, to every other Christian. We haven’t any choice about it. We are one, like it or not.

    Do you know what the Zen Buddhist said to the hot dog vendor? “Make me one with everything.” English is a remarkably flexible language. You can play wonderful games with it. “Make for me one hot dog with everything on it” is a far cry from the Buddhist ideal, which is in fact to become One with ...read more

  • Why Are We Divided?

    Truth divides from error not lives in peaceful coexistence.

  • Family Ties Series

    Contributed by Alison Bucklin on Aug 7, 2011
     | 1,706 views

    How can Christians be united when there are so many things we can’t agree on? That is the wrong question. The real question is, how can we imagine that any of these human differences can break the unity among us that God has already created?

  • In Faith, Unity Series

    Several 100 yrs ago, Augustine said "In faith unity. In doubtful things, liberty. In all things love". How can we apply that concept to our mission as a church?

    Christianity and Religions of the World

    Intro: with the diversity of religions in our society today, a question I am asked from time to time is what is the big difference between Christianity and the other religions of the world. Tonight, I would like to give the practical differences, not the deep theological differences. The ...read more
