The Church is to be "a sacrament of the world’s possibility. A sign of what the world can be." — Luke Timothy Johnson. This quote describes our highest hope. That we would be a sacrament of the world’s possibility. That we would love radically, inclusively, and generously — regardless of age, race, orientation, ethnicity, marital status or disability. That we would be a “first-fruits” of what Creation will one day become when God sets all things to rights. Join us live, Sunday mornings 10:45am at Athens Drive Magnet High School in Raleigh, or on YouTube at https://ekklesiaraleigh.org/youtube.

    When Religion Behaves Badly

    07/10/2022 – When Religion Behaves Badly

    In the parable of the Good Samaritan, we usually focus on the wounded man and the kindness of the Samaritan. But Jesus includes two other figures in his story — a Priest and a Levite — who fail to act as they should. The church today still has many moments where we fail to act as we ought.

Peace Baptist Church, preaching from the story of Namaan's healing in 2 Kings 5, a message titled The Initiator of Hope. “Though 2022 presents social, political and economic challenges, God is able to keep us hopeful in challenging times.

    06/26/2022 – When Freedoms Collide
