The Village Church exists to love God, love people, and make disciples of Jesus Christ.
The gospel had radically transformed the city of Ephesus 15 years prior, but Paul is concerned that the believers’ are again being lulled into sleep by its wickedness. By deceit, rootlessness, the anxieties of the world, and the deception of worldly riches, we too begin to distance ourselves from...
Witnesses to the Nations
After Jesus rose, the disciples asked if it was now time for Him to restore the kingdom to Israel. His response was one of protection and calling. He reminded them that only the Father knows the times, and called them to go into their neighborhoods, surrounding cities, and the nations and bear wi...
Citizens of the Kingdom
John’s vision from God in Revelation 21 gives us a picture of the new heavens and earth—all ethnicities bringing what’s good and beautiful about their cultures to live together. As we exist in the “already but not yet” of this kingdom to come, we learn about other ethnicities and cultures with cu...
Light and Likeness
In Genesis, God makes man in His own image and places a unique, spiritual mantle on all humans—regardless of status, ability, race, or gender. As we become the kinds of people God is making us into, we are to embrace our role as salt and light pushing back against the darkness and engaging the ho...
A Vibrant Endurance
The path of life has been laid out by God through His law and made possible through the coming of Jesus. By His grace, we are transformed from one degree of glory to the next and called to the table of His joy to experience pleasures forevermore.
The Advent of Christ
In Him is life, and this life is the light of mankind. And to this day His light shines in the darkness, and the darkness will never overcome it.
Matt is always gospel centered
I love catching his sermons each week! He does a great job of helping me to keep my eyes up rather than “naval gazing”! He disciples me weekly and I can recommend his teaching/sermons over and over again as I disciple others because he stays true to God’s word.
The hypocrisy from Matt is beyond forgivable. Done with this church. Women can’t be leaders but men can do whatever they want cuz apparently god trusts men who have affairs but women aren’t trustworthy no matter what they do???? Just another church that has nothing to do with Jesus and works to maintain the patriarchy to keep their white men in power regardless of the abuse caused by the male leadership. It baffles me that you all say women can’t be trusted but men can? Hmmm okay. You all are just manipulating people to keep male abusers in power. You don’t care about hypocrisy as long as it maintains the patriarchy.
Stirs my heart to love God
These sermons are Bible saturated, always Gospel centered and Christ exalting. It reminds me of truth, deepens my understanding and stirs my heart to love God every time. I am very grateful for the teachings and the passion that Matt Chandler has for the things of God. It is contagious and very needed in this time. I also love the focus on the Holy Spirit as well. All very needed. (also very funny and relatable)
