Resurrection City Church meets at Hamline Elementary School. Our vision is to glorify God by seeing people, our city, and the world made new in Jesus, our Savior and King.
Kingdom Politics | What Does God Desire of Government?
Before we can engage thoughtfully and Christianly in politics, we have to understand what God’s view of government is. In the sermon, Pastor Joel places government into the story of the Bible: Creation, Fall, Accountability and Redemption.
Kingdom Politics | Why Should I Care?
In this sermon in our Kingdom Politics series, Pastor Julie preaches on why Christians should love our neighbors by engaging with politics from Matthew 22.
Kingdom Politics | A Kingdom From Another Place
In the first sermon from our new Kingdom Politics series, Pastor Joel talks about why Christian engagement in politics is so difficult and why we need Kingdom civics instead of partisan ones.Acts 17 tells us pagans viewed the Christians as “turning the world upside down,” following a different king than Caesar. Today, Christians often aren’t turning the world upside down, but instead look just like any other members of political parties. Christians should baffle the political order by refusing to be categorized neatly into established boxes.In this important sermon, we discuss what it means to be about the kingdom of God while still engaging politically in this complex time.
Endgame | Repentance is the Key
In this final sermon in our series in John, we walk through the book's epilogue, where Peter is reconciled to Jesus after he denied him three times as the crucifixion took place. We learn the power and necessity of repentance as we see Jesus restore Peter, and we see the fruit of that repentance as we reflect on Peter's story.
Endgame | The Significance of the Resurrection
John’s stunning account of the resurrection tells us many things about its significance and why it has enduring importance for Christians and the rest of the world. In this sermon Pastor Joel explains its importance to us in regards to how we view God when things look terrible, in how it’s a credible account for Jesus actually being raised, in how Jesus’s resurrection body is the blueprint for our own someday, and in what it teaches us about how Jesus reveals himself to us.
Endgame | The King in His Splendor
The crucifixion narrative in the book of John is just that: a narrative. Which means that it conveys the significance of the death of Jesus through details implanted in a story.In this sermon, Pastor Joel gives three details that offer significance to Jesus’s death: (1) That Jesus defeats his enemy by shedding his own blood, not theirs(2) That Jesus remains faithful while his disciple Peter (representing us) is faithless(3) That we see both God and man at work in the story, both working towards their own endsWhen we put these three clues together, we see what John wants us to know about the death of the Word of God. Hint: it is good news for ears weary of their own mistakes and beaten down by the world’s bullies.
