January 24, 2016 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: The Lord’s Prayer

Message: Our Father in Heaven

Jesus begins the Lord’s Prayer with the words, “Our Father…” This points to the intimate relationship Christians have with God the Father. But what kind of Father is God? In this message, we look at God’s Word to answer that question.

April 26th News-The Apostle’s Creed: God the Father

April 23, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

Series:The Apostle’s Creed– What Do You Believe?

This week we will focus on the first line of the Apostles Creed

I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.

What you believe determines how you live your life. With this in mind, it is important to determine what you believe and why you believe it.

Studies tell us that most Americans believe that there is a God. The question is this: What do you believe about the God you say you believe in? And a good follow up question to that is: Why do you believe what you believe about the God you say you believe in?

As we look at the statement in the Creed we will discover a Biblical perspective on God the Father (the first person in the Trinity). Why is this important? Because what you believe about God determines how you will relate to him and, in turn, how you will live.

To prepare, read Acts 17:16-31 as see what Paul says about God to a group of philosophers in Athens. Then read Romans 1:18-25 to see the results of living with a distorted view of God. Finally, Read Psalm 139:1-16 to understand the relationship between God and the people he created.

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

The Lord of the Story– Jacob Steals a Blessing

February 9, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: The Lord of the Story

 

In Genesis 27 we see the story of Jacob fooling his father into giving him the blessing instead of his older brother Esau. What a strange way for God to continue the line of the Messiah!

What does this story say about God? What does it say about us? What’s all this talk of “blessing” all about?

The Lord of the Story– Abraham

Series: The Lord of the Story

In Genesis 12, God chooses Abram (he later changes his name to Abraham) to be the man who God would bless the world through.

As we look at Abraham’s story, we see our own because it is a powerful story of God’s grace and faithfullness– then, now, and forever!

The Lord of the Story– The Tower of Babel

January 28, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: The Lord of the Story

In the story of The Tower of Babel, we see that mankind, made in the image of God, can achieve great things. But these achievements can actually drive us away from God rather than towards him. God, in his lovingkindness, may thwart these plans and actions for our own benefit.

The Lord of the Story– Introduction

January 13, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: The Lord of the Story

God has chosen to reveal himself to his creation in many different ways. One specific way is through his Word. In his Word we see many different stories to show us Gods character, love and attributes. We also see ourselves in how people relate to God in Scripture.

In this series we will be looking at several stories from the Old Testament. Many times these stories seem confusing because God seems to act in a way that is very different than how we see Jesus act in the New Testament. Are they two different Gods? Or are we just missing something?

This introduction to the series allows us to see that God does not change– and, hopefully, provides a foundation for us to look at these stories and see God in a whole new way.
