United in Christ – Ephesians 2

9/24/17 p.m. sermon

Living in a world that is so divided, it is a vital time for the church to remember the unity that we have in Christ.  Ephesians Chapter 2 shows us that, although we were once aliens and strangers, we have been united in Christ, and live together as the church of Christ, his kingdom, and the temple of the Living God.

God’s Word on Authority – Psalm 2:2-4

9/24/17 a.m. sermon

It’s clear that many in our world have an issue with authority.  The Bible teaches that if one has a problem with authority, he has a problem with God, because God has instituted authority in all areas of our lives (in church, in society, and in the home).  One who claims to be a Christian must be subject to authority, or his religion is not from the Bible, it is self-made religion.

The Life of Christ: The Sermon on the Mount (part 4)

9/13/17 Wednesday Bible Class

One of the most fundamental passages in the New Testament is the Sermon on the Mount in Matthew 5-7 (with the same ideas repeated in a number of places in Luke, particularly Luke 6).  It is a passage that every Christian should study and do so often.  We’ve been going through this sermon as we study the Life of Christ, and in this lesson we start to get into the 6th chapter of Matthew, and cover things related to giving and to prayer.

I Want You To Know Him – Eph. 1:15-23

9/10/17 p.m. sermon

The apostle Paul was always ready to let the brethren to whom he wrote know that he was praying for them.  The letter to the Ephesians is no different as he tells them, “I never cease giving thanks for you and I am regularly remembering you in prayer.”  In particular, Paul prays for them to grow in the knowledge of God, in three specific ways that we will consider in this lesson.  He wanted them to grow in knowledge concerning their hope, concerning their inheritance, and concerning God’s power.
