Family Matters

God cares about the family – and he cares about your family. During this series, we’ll discover how following Christ and God’s design and intent for the family leads to blessing.

Matters of…Oneness

July 23, 2017 | Ephesians 4:15-24 | unity, family, communication

“Oneness” as it relates to the family refers to the state of being in complete unity with one another and with the Lord. Why don’t we see the oneness that God intended at creation and that Christ came to give with our salvation? Why are so many families and marriages fractured and broken? One of the main problems is poor communication.

In the apostle Paul’s letter to the Ephesians, he taught them to seek oneness in Christ as the goal of their family communication. We can make oneness in Christ the goal of our family’s communication.

Matters of…the Family

July 16, 2017 | Ephesians 3:14-21 | family, Christian parenting

You matter to God and your family matters to God. After all, the family was God’s idea. Yet, today families have strayed from God’s design and intent. In the book of Ephesians, the apostle Paul prayed that believers would experience God’s blessing on the family. We can experience God’s blessing on our families.


So You Think You're a Christian?

You try to be good. You go to church when you can. You pray. But is that really what it means to be a Christian? In this sermon series, we look at the 3 strands of the Gospel. We sometimes only emphasize 1 or 2 of them and we therefore have a skewed perspective of what it means to be a Christian.

Following Christ’s Commands

July 9, 2017 | 1 John 2:3-6 |

Many in the church today falsely think they are Christians when in fact, they are not. They have prayed the prayer, but they have not truly come to faith in Jesus, because their lives are unchanged. So, how can we be sure?
In the apostle John’s first letter, he wrote to give believers confident assurance of their salvation in Jesus Christ. We can have confident assurance of our salvation in Jesus Christ.

Receiving Christ’s Love

July 2, 2017 | 1 John 4:13-21 |

Pastor Gary continued our sermon series called “So You Think You’re a Christian?”. Once we confess our mess and our need for a savior, the second movement of the gospel in our lives is receiving Christ’s love. Do you have a hard time forgiving yourself or others? Do you find yourself working really hard to try and measure up? Are you a perfectionist that has a hard time understanding that God loves you the way you are? Receiving Christ’s love is necessary to be a mature, growing Christian.
