As Christians, we worship a God of Words. God clearly wants to make Himself known. He has done this not only by what we see outside in nature, but especially in a living book. This book, called the Bible or Scriptures, prompted Jesus to say to the people of His day, “You search the Scripture because you think that in them you have eternal life; it is these that testify about Me” (John 5:39)
Thus, each message that we teach is not only from the Scriptures, but point to the ONE of whom they testify. Eternal life is found in the person of Jesus, not the book itself. Our method of teaching is called “expositional” which means the points of the sermon are based upon the text of Scripture itself. We take the timeless truths contained in the Scriptures and clearly, practically apply them to our lives today.

Loving Across Cultures
From Series: "Loving Across Boundaries"
Early this year, Pastor Josh set out as a goal for our church to grow in spiritual maturity. One of the areas we are seeking to grow in is our ability to recognize and cross some of the boundaries that exist in our church. Sometimes without even realizing it, we live within boundaries of generations, church traditions, cultures, areas of conscience, etc. In an effort to help us press toward maturity, we will be doing a summer series called “Loving Across Boundaries”. The hope is that we as a congregation will be challenged to grow in our love for people who think, act, and prioritize things differently than we do. Beginning on Sunday, July 16, our series will consist of five parts: 1) loving across generations 2) loving across cultures 3) loving across traditions 4) loving across ethnicity 5) loving people whose consciences lead them to different conclusions. Let us prepare our hearts to be humble before the Word of God and commit to change where He asks us to!
