HEROES: Noah and the Ark

Sunday, July 11th, 2010

Our newest sermon series is entitled HEROES. Throughout this series, we will revisit the stories we grew up learning in Sunday School and Vacation Bible School, but we will look at them with fresh eyes and for maybe the first time we will see and understand how they fit into the grand narrative of Scripture. We’re finally going to understand how these stories relate to us today and how they all point us to the One True Hero. This week, we are looking in Genesis 6:9-9:17 to revisit the spectacular story of Noah and the Ark. Here are some notes to help you follow along.

THE GOSPEL – Our Message for the Mission Pt. 2: Man

Sunday, June 20th, 2010

Our Mission is to glorify God through lives changed by the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ. This mission has many facets, but the foundation of the mission is the gospel of Jesus Christ. Jesus is the rock upon which His church is built, the cornerstone of our knowledge of God and our faith in God. The Great Commission found in the last few verses of Matthew 28 was Jesus’ mission for His church. The way we are to accomplish this mission is to proclaim the truth about Jesus to all the nations, making disciples of them, baptizing them, and teaching them all that Jesus has commanded of us. This message is what we are studying in this four week series, THE GOSPEL. This week we are talking about part two: Man (the creation of mankind, the Fall, and sin).

The Message of the Mission Part 2: Man

1. In the Beginning, Adam Sinned (Gen 3)

A. They rejected God’s authority over them.
B. They declared their independence from God.

2. We Are Sinners by Nature, Not because We Sin

A. We are born children of wrath. (Eph 2:1-3)
B. The inevitable result of our sinful nature is death. (Rom 5:12)

3. We Are Totally Depraved

A. No one deserves God’s love. (Rom 3:9-12)
B. Everyone misses the mark. (Rom 3:23)
C. Our best deeds are filthy to God. (Isa 64:6a)

4. God’s Judgment Is Active (Isaiah 59:1-2; Rev 19:15)

A. Your sinfulness has separated you from God. (Isa 59:1-2)
B. God’s wrath will be forever poured out on sinners. (Rev 19:15)

5. The Unrepentant Inherit Hell

A. Hell is worse than we can understand. (Matt 10:28)
B. Hell is real…it’s hot and it hurts. (Mark 9:43, 48)
C. Only those who repent will be saved. (Luke 13:3, 5)
