Loving one another is evidence of an inner change that has taken place. A relationship with God impacts all other relationships. But personal guilt can lead to resentment of others and even hatred. In 1 John 3, we are drawn to the example of Christ who willingly laid down His life for others. Our relationship […]
There are plenty of voices speaking into our lives on a daily basis. As believers in Jesus we must be careful to discern what voices are actually true verses voices that simply sound true. The enemy is clever and extremely subtle. First John 2:18-27 warns believers about the spirit and mindset of the antichrist, which […]
God is known for His love so we might almost feel uneasy saying there is a love God hates! But we must be honest about this one. God isn’t willing to take second place in a person’s life. Yet how often are we drawn to that which the world offers in hopes of finding satisfaction […]

For this Christmas eve service, we light the final advent candle, remembering Jesus who has come into the world. Although the world is described by the gospel writer John as being a dark place, Jesus came as light. While light exposes that which can be hidden in darkness, it brings about what is truly good. […]
This Christmas Eve morning worship service lights the fourth advent candle and focuses on Immanuel, meaning “God with us.” We hear what God with us means to each of us on a practical level. Then we focus on the rest of the nativity narrative found in Luke 2:1-20. Humility is laced all throughout these verses […]
Prophetic words from the Old Testament indicated that the coming Messiah would be born in Bethlehem. Joseph and Mary lived in Nazareth up until the final days of Mary’s pregnancy. But God had a plan, using a Roman emperor named Caesar Augustus to get his people to the exact location they needed to be.
For this second week of advent we consider the word “hope.” While Mary was given opportunity to carry the Son of God, she also would have been confronted with hardship stemming from cultural stipulations placed on her. She had to wonder how her family, her community, and even her soon-to-be husband would respond to pregnancy. […]
For this first Sunday of advent we look at the theme of promise. The promise of a Savior goes back to the beginning in the Garden of Eden when Adam and Eve first sinned. This promise continues to unfold as time moves forward. God knew people would choose the path of disobedience, so He provided […]
This is the final study on spiritual gifts. In this message, we take a look at the rest of the gifts listed in Scripture.

This week we begin to give definition to the spiritual gifts listed in Romans 12:6-8, 1 Corinthians 12:8-10, 1 Corinthians 12:27-31, and Ephesians 4:11-12.
