Flatbread & Folded Linen
In Jewish tradition, the Feast of Unleavened Bread holds special significance, so rich and powerful that it reaches beyond the nation of Israel to all mankind. Like the flatbread, Christ’s body represents our sinful flesh, conquered and surrendered in the grave. In this message, Pastor Sean Reed shares the importance of Jesus’ death and burial to the lives of believers and how He took with Him ALL our sin so we can walk in freedom today.
The Whole Story
Throughout Scripture, Jesus tells a story that extends beyond the Jewish nation. He came to earth to take away the sins of the world. The Feast of Passover was prepared for a few disciples, but His death on the cross gave us all a seat at the table. In this message, Pastor Aaron Kennedy shares the importance of Passover and the fulfillment of the gospel.
Throughout the Bible, there are signs of significant moments in history and even the end of the world. These are shadows of things to come. The Old Testament Sabbath or Shabbat was a day God set aside for rest. In a society driven by success, we see its importance still today. In this message, Pastor Aaron Kennedy shares how obeying God’s command for Shabbat can lead to physical and spiritual restoration.
Prepared for Eternity
We are saved by grace through faith, but it doesn't end there. In Hebrews 6, we see how to avoid eternal judgment. How we invest our time and resources here on earth is important. In this message, Pastor Aaron Kennedy shares the importance of living each day in preparation for our eternal home in heaven.
A Heavenly Home
We often avoid the topic of death because it makes us uncomfortable; but as one of the six foundational principles found in Hebrews 6, the resurrection of the dead is important. Apostle Paul’s letter to the church in Thessalonica tells us that death is not the end. If we believe in Jesus, our eternal home is heaven. In this message, Pastor Michael Chandler shares with us the importance of living each day in preparation for our heavenly home by telling others about Him.
The Missing Peace
Everything great that God desires to do in our lives comes through relationship. Proximity is the key to intimacy. It’s why the foundational principle of the laying on of hands is so important. In this message, Pastor Aaron Kennedy shares how we can find missing peace through connection and relationship with God and others.
