In this series, we will be looking at some of the great texts of Christian Scripture—texts that seem to capture the whole gospel in short compass—texts that God has used down through the ages to do His people good. This would be an excellent series for those new to Christianity or for those searching for the essence of the Christian message.
Ephesians: Spiritual Warfare
In the Christian life one of the great unseen threats that always stands at the door is the devil and his unceasing warfare against the church. In this study we will consider the devil, his ways, and how best to hold the line against him.
Book of Ephesians
Paul’s magnum opus describing the wealth, the walk, and the warfare that comes to the Christian Church through our union with Christ. Whether you are new to the Christian life or have been walking with Christ for many years, this is a great place to go deeper into the heart of God and learn what it is to live with him.
The incarnation of Christ 2,000 years ago is the greatest event in the history of mankind. At one moment in time, God Himself took on flesh and became man to live a sinless life among sinful men that He might redeem a people for Himself.
We live in a world in which people have lost their identity as those made in God’s image, for His glory, and as the crown of His creation. This study of Genesis counters such rootlessness by going back to the beginning and studying God’s created order. In particular, we will focus on the first three chapters to gain a perspective on man before, during, and after the fall.
In Revelation Chapters 2 & 3, we read seven letters to seven churches. In these seven letters, we see Christ's posture toward His bride the Church. Though she is tried, tested, tempted, and often failing, she is also assured in these letters that there is always a way back to God, to faithfulness, and to fruitfulness -- if only we will listen to Christ and His Word. What would Jesus Christ say to our Church today?
The Book of Haggai is about the power of God’s word to revive impossible situations. God does not forget His people even though their hearts have grown cold and hard and His temple lay in ruins With remarkable grace (and a good deal of straight talking candor), God raises up the prophet Haggai to call His people home and see the glory of Messiah and the new Temple He will build.
Psalms of Ascent
The Pilgrim Songs sermon series focuses on the Psalms of Ascent (Psalm 120-134) and shows the life of faith as a pilgrimage, coming out of the world, pushing through every difficulty, and going up to God in worship. Here the weary traveler can find words to refresh his soul for the next leg of his journey home.
One of the most practical books in the New Testament, James addresses Christians who are discouraged by trials, embittered against God, cold in their faith, and those who are strongly tempted to think and act like the world. James writes to restore balance to these Christians’ lives. Few books are more relevant for the church in our day.
Book of Isaiah
Writing in the 8th century BC, Isaiah writes to a people desperately trying to find a political answer to the Assyria problem. But Assyria isn't their big problem. God is. Isaiah writes calling them back to God. As he does, he foretells the coming of a great hero, a servant king who will bring true and lasting salvation for His people.
