    Imaging God (Genesis 1:27-28; 2:5-7, 15-25)

    Imaging God (Genesis 1:27-28; 2:5-7, 15-25)

    This is the first sermon in a series called "Made for Relationship." We see from Genesis 1 and 2 that God made us for relationship with him and with others. But sin has deformed these relationship. The good news is that Jesus came into the world of deformed relationships to remake the world and restore our relationships. This good news shapes every part of our lives, including the ways we think about friendship, dating, marriage, sex, singleness, and relating to parents & family.
