Westview Church is about following Christ in all of life. In each episode we discuss how that mission plays out in a different aspect of life.
SERMON - Stay Awake
Jesus spoke of things to come when his disciples asked him in private about his thoughts on the splendor of the temple. Regardless of timelines and charts, Jesus wants his disciples to know he will be victorious, and he can be trusted. Therefore, we can stay vigilant and faithful. Listen to Pastor Haakon's sermon on Mark 13:1-37 for more.
SERMON - By What Authority?
No body likes arrogance. There are a number of commonly used idioms and illustrations that highlight this—the tortoise and the hare, "bigger they are, harder they fall," "pride goes before the fall." Yet we are quick to pass over the display of arrogance in our own lives. Mark captures the folly of Israel's leaders puffed up on their own self-importance not for us to mock them but to see how we are the same. Listen to Pastor Brett's sermon on Mark 11:27-12:44 for more.
SERMON - Have Faith in God
Grabbing a delicious-looking apple only to cut it open to find it is rotten inside is an unpleasant discovery. The apple is quickly thrown away. Outward appearances with rotten motives are far from what God wants of his people and comes under Jesus' kingly condemnation in Mark 11:1-25. Listen to Pastor Brett's sermon for more.
SERMON - A Ransom for Many
The path of discipleship is fraught with danger and missteps. We're going to need some guidance as we are following Christ in all of life. In Mark 10:13-52, we're given two virtues of faithful discipleship, each with a positive and negative example. Disciples ought to live in willing dependence and humble faith. Listen to Pastor Brett's sermon for more as we follow after Christ together.
SERMON - Let Not Man Separate
Divorce is commonplace in our culture and is assumed to be a given, similar to the expectations in Jesus' day. Yet the fracturing of a marriage has never been God's intent, and it is a sobering standard that Jesus conveys in Mark 10:1-12. Listen to Pastor Dan's sermon and be encouraged to value the glory marriage points to.
SERMON - Identity: Womanhood
Glass ceiling. Toxic masculinity. Patriarchy. These phrases are used in varying degrees within our society to convey a message about female identity. We are bombarded with a message of what a woman is all the while that same culture cannot with clarity and consistency define what a woman is. A biblical worldview addresses femininity quite differently as the God who has created us has revealed himself and his purposes in his Word. Listen to Pastor Brett's sermon on womanhood in the final message in the identity series.
