Come & See Jesus, 2 (Prologue)

Last week we introduced the idea of using the Gospel of John in a casual Bible study setting for those willing to investigate Jesus. The goal of these posts is to provide you with tools so that you feel confident to answer questions, and facilitate discussion about Jesus. Before you begin reading and discussing the […]

Come & See Jesus, 1

The point of the Bible is not simply education, though there is much to learn. Its point is not simply entertainment, though its stories and songs are inspirational. Its point is not simply ethical improvement, though it has shaped the moral life of civilizations. The point of the Bible is to encounter Jesus. (Glen Scrivener, 3 […]

Praying for Muslims

This last weekend followers of Islam all over the world began their yearly ritual of a month-long, daytime fast known as Ramadan. This is a time when they celebrate Muhammad’s reception of the Quran and try to ramp up their efforts to “win God’s favor” on judgment day. As our missionary in Indonesia said, In essence, they celebrate the […]

Church Basics Class

Last summer, our church went through several studies discussing the nature of the local church, church membership, church leadership, and church unity. Through our studies, we realized that we need a stronger, biblical understanding of this thing we call “church” and what it’s place is in our lives as believers. One key area of concern we […]

Help! I Can’t Forgive

One Month Later …

Well, it’s been a couple of months now since we started into out our church-wide initiative of Treasuring Scripture Together. Some of us have been reading for distance through the Storyline of the Bible. Others have been reading for depth through the New Testament. We’ve also committed to memorize Scripture together. Hopefully, we have all been working to commit these […]

Treasuring Scripture Together

We have stated that our key core value as a church is the Bible. The revelation from God to man and our only authority for belief and behavior. This has to be much more than a stated value; it has to be an actual reality in the life of our church. We want to be a group of people that […]

Hail the Incarnate Deity

Why do the events of Luke 2 evoke such a sense of joy, awe, and wonder in the hearts of humanity? Is it that society has over-dramatized the birth of a famous religious leader? Has culture so sentimentalized the nativity that we just respond that way? Is it that the human heart just wants something more meaningful to hold on to in the […]
