    Baptism - Into the Waters

    Baptism - Into the Waters

    On Easter we celebrated the Resurrection of Jesus. Without this victory over death, there would be no hope for any of us. Following the biblical narrative, before Jesus ascended into heaven, He commissioned His followers to "carry on" His work--which was to develop others into disciples...followers...apprentices of Jesus.

    However, right after that they are charged to "baptize them in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit." Baptism is a symbolic picture of the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

    When a Christian is immersed in the water, this person is identifying with Jesus' death, burial, and resurrection. They are also making a public declaration of faith in Jesus as their Savior and Lord.

    Jesus commanded His followers to be baptized. If you are new to faith in Christ, or have never been baptized, we would love to come alongside you as you take this important step in your spiritual journey!
     
    Join us this Sunday as we talk about “Baptism”.

    Good Friday - Jesus' Final Words

    Good Friday is the day we remember the crucifixion of Jesus, and we reflect on Jesus bearing the weight of our sin through suffering and perfect love. Join us for a short service as we ponder the weight of His love for us…a love that would lead Him to the greatest sacrifice of all time.

    Community

    Community

    Being part of a community is a basic human need. Unfortunately, most people do not belong to a positive community. Even Christians who attend church regularly most often do not feel as though they are part of a close-knit community. They are missing the most valuable spiritual resource God provides for us. God intended for us to join our hearts to love one another and serve those who need the love of Jesus Christ in their lives. Once we find the beautiful acceptance and encouragement of a Christ-centered community, we can never return, and we create a community that is welcome to all who are seeking our Lord and a place where they are loved unconditionally.

    Generosity

    Generosity

    We've been told in our culture that, "MORE MONEY MEANS MORE HAPPINESS!" Most of us are waking up to the reality that we were fed a lie. But there is great news. Jesus gives us a vision of where true, rich and deep happiness comes from.

    One of the things that Jesus is famous for is turning our vision of the “good life” on its head. He said things like, "The last will be first and the first will be last. Those who exalt themselves will be humbled and those who humble themselves will be exalted. If you do not forgive others their sins, your heavenly father will not forgive your sins."

    But nowhere is this upside down reality of the “good life” more self-evident than in Jesus’s teaching about MONEY.

    Come join us as we explore how the practice of Generosity is a game-changer when it comes to our impact and contentment in life.

    Witness

    Witness

    What does it mean to be a witness? The definition says, "An individual who, being present, personally sees or perceives a thing; a person who gives evidence." But what does it mean to be a witness for Jesus? How do we do it, what does it look like and where should we do it?

    We'll explore these questions and more as we look at the Practice of Witness!
