It is good for us to be here! Before Jesus suffered as our substitute, He appeared in glory as the Son of God. In the face of suffering and doubt, we have the assurance of the apostles' eyewitness testimony and the word of the prophets confirmed, that the God of Mt. Sinai became a man to suffer and die for us. Pastor's sermon, "Rest in Christ's Transfiguration Glory" is based on 2 Peter 1:16-21. God bless your worship!
Jesus came to free us from sin; He did not free us to sin. God is holy; and He expects us to be holy also. As Jesus lays out God's expectations of holiness, we despair of ourselves and our own authority, and place ourselves under Christ. Becuase He gives us hope in His grace and forgiveness. Pastor's sermon, "Look to Jesus' Authority Alone" is based on Matthew 5:21-37. God bless your worship!
Who am I? Why am I here? The answers to these questions shape our lives here on earth. Jesus answers these questions with two fascinating metaphors. Called by God's grace, we are "the salt of the earth" and "the light of the world." Our live reflect our gracious calling in Christ so that we can be blessings to all. Pastor's sermon, "Be Who You Are in Christ" is based on Matthew 5:13-16.
Instead of boasting in ourselves, which leads to further division among God's people, God's Word encourages us to boast in the Lord and in His grace which He has poured out on us in Jesus Christ. Pastor's sermon, "United We Stand--Boasting in the Lord's Grace," is based on 1 Corinthians 1:26-31.
Jesus appears—as the Light of the world. In the dark places covered by the shadows of sin and unbelief the light of Jesus shines! His light shines forth in the preaching of repentance and in the good news of His kingdom. He invites us to follow Him with our lives illumined by Him, living in the joy of freedom and the unity we enjoy in His name. Pastor's sermon, "United We Stand--In the Name of Jesus Christ" is based on 1 Corinthians 1:10-17.
We give thanks that as our Lord Jesus gathers each of us up as His followers, we find unity in the grace that God has shown us through His Son--unity in that God has written us together into the story of His grace in Christ. Pastor's sermon, "United We Stand--By God's Grace in Christ" is based on 1 Corinthians 1:1-9.
For centuries people had waited for the One who would save us all from the darkness of sin and from the clutches of Satan. In Jesus the wait is over! At His baptism Jesus was anointed by the Holy Spirit and declared by the Father to be the true Son of God and the promised Savior. Pastor's sermon, "Jesus Appears as Our Anointed Hero" is based on Matthew 3:13-17. God bless your worship!
