Jesus: Our Healer

Sunday, November 6th, 2011

We’re blinded by so many things and we need Jesus to heal us.

Have you ever thought you had a good picture of your current situation, only to later realize you were blind to what was truly going on in that moment? For many of us, we are living like that right now in our estimation of who God is and where we stand with Him. This text will help us to understand how Jesus is our Healer. He is the only one who can heal our blindness.

HEROES: Noah and the Ark

Our newest sermon series is entitled HEROES.

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 GOSPEL
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)

Sunday, April 18th, 2010

Our latest sermon series is based on our Core Values. Each week we will be covering one of our church’s five core values. This week we are learning the importance of living by God’s Word. All of us want to live lives of purpose, lives that bring us joy and satisfaction. This week we are looking to God’s Word to reveal to us how we can make that a possibility.

THE CORE: Living by God’s Word
2 Timothy 3:14-17

THE CORE: Worship (Hebrews 13:15-17)

Sunday, April 11th, 2010

Our latest sermon series is based on our Core Values. Each week we will be covering one of our church’s five core values. This week we are talking about worship. Unlike what most people think when they hear the word worship, it is not simply what we do when we sing songs about God. We are born worshipping. We are either worshipping someone or something or we are worshipping our Creator. This week we are going to try and understand what worship is and how we can align our hearts and minds to make sure we worship the only one who deserves to be worshipped…our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Here’s a short outline with a link to the sermon below, or if you have iTunes, you can go to our page there and subscribe to our podcast.

THE CORE: Worship
Hebrews 13:15-17

I. We Are Created Worshipping

1. Worship is honoring someone or something: glory.
2. Worship is something we do: sacrifice.
Our lives are about not doing some things so we can find time or money to do things more important to us.

II. We Have a Worship Problem

1. Sin is making something else more central to your significance, purpose, and happiness than your relationship with God.
2. Whatever we base our identity and value on becomes deified.
3. The root of the problem is always that you are worshipping something or someone over God.
4. We must constantly seek and smash our idols!

III. The Essentials of Biblical Worship

1. Praise
2. Proclamation: lips that confess Jesus’ name
3. Service: doing good as a demonstration of the gospel
4. Participation: sharing with others as a demonstration of grace
5. Sacrifice: giving of time, talent, and treasure
6. Submission: respecting godly authority placed over us

The Mission of Jesus: A Mission of Death (John 12:20-26)

Sunday, March 21st, 2010

Our new series of sermons is based on the mission of Jesus. Our responsibility as Christians is to become more like Jesus every day. This means we are to learn and understand the mission of Jesus so that we can live on mission with him. This week’s sermon reveals that our mission is a mission of death. While it might sound morbid, it is truly a wonderful mission to which we are called. Here’s a short outline with a link to the sermon below, or if you have iTunes, you can go to our page there and subscribe to our podcast.

The
 Mission 
of
 Jesus: 
A 
Mission 
of 
Death
John 
12:20‐26

1. The objective of the mission is Jesus glorified.

2. You have been chosen for this mission. (v. 25)
a. You can refuse the mission: (i.) Loving your life in this world; (ii.) Losing your life eternally.
b. You can accept the mission: (i.) Hating your life in this world; (ii.) Gaining life eternal.

3. Your death is essential for the success of the mission.

4. Your life must be focused solely on the mission.
Our shameless focus on self must be replaced with a total
focus on Jesus and His mission.

5. The evidence that the mission is succeeding:
a. We will look more like Jesus daily: (i.) Jesus’ will increase and we will decrease; (ii.) Our desires will become like the desires of Jesus; (iii.) We will be consumed with God’s glory, our brothers, and the lost.
b. We will proclaim the gospel of Jesus daily.
c. We will see lives changed by the power of the gospel.

6. The end result:
a. Jesus will be glorified.
b. We will be with Jesus for eternal life.
c. We will share in the honor and glory of the Son.

A Call to War (Ephesians 6:10-24)

Sunday, March 14th, 2010

The Bible is clear that anyone who professes to be a Christian must live in a way that shows that they truly are committed followers of Jesus Christ. At the end of the book of Ephesians, Paul makes it very clear that God’s calling on our lives to be a Christian is also His call on our lives to enter into a war. This week’s sermon reveals why we are at war, with whom/what we are at war, and what we need to do in order to prepare for battle. Do not be mistaken, if you are a Christian, you are already at war, whether you realize it or not! Here’s a short outline with a link to the sermon below, or if you have iTunes, you can go to our page there and subscribe to our podcast.

Our Call to Christ is a Call to War!

I. Awaken to the war around you!

1. Our ongoing relationship with God is our strength.
2. The war is personal and corporate.

II. Christianity is a call to continually stand firm.

1. Our past accomplishments are not enough.
2. We begin with truth at our core.
3. Your character is at your defense.
4. The gospel must be our firm-footing!
5. Reliance on God is our greatest defense personally and corporately.
6. Our confidence is in our salvation.
7. Our weapon is our knowledge and understanding of the Word.
8. We must remain vigilant in prayer: a) Prayer for others; b) Not prayer for freedom; c) Prayer for boldness

III. Proclaiming the gospel is the purpose of the war.
