Feb 22 A Tale of Two Brothers / Romans 14:13-15:1

Brad Bell

Where the scriptures are clear, we must be obedient. But where the scriptures are vague, how are we to live? Our journey through Romans this week provides clear insights and practical steps to assist believers in living a life of obedience to God, even in the gray. Historically the church has either… More

Feb 15 Grace in the Gray / Romans 14:1-12

Shea Sumlin

One of the greatest challenges of the church today is division from within. Far too many Christians break fellowship, and far too many churches split over disagreements about non-essential areas of the faith. In this passage of Romans, the Apostle Paul helps us understand how to accept one another… More

Feb 8 The Fulfillment of the Law / Romans 13:8-14

PJ Lewis

Someone once said the ultimate expression of our rejection of the world’s mold and the demonstration of a renewed mind is our capacity to love. This week's passage bears witness to this statement. Following the commandment to love your neighbor as yourself fulfills the entire law. But the world… More

Feb 1 Under a Higher Authority / Romans 13:1-7

Brad Bell

Paul writes the book of Romans under the reign of Emperor Nero (who would eventually have Paul executed), and in this chapter tells both Jews and Christians that despite their fear of persecution, they were to subject themselves to the governing authorities. Why? Because those who are in authority… More

Jan 25 Christ on Display / Romans 12:9-21

Brad Bell

Faith without deeds is useless. James makes this statement as a reminder that our faith in Christ should be seen in the world around us (James 2:17). Paul takes this same direction in Romans 12 when he lays out over twenty indicators of how our faith should be seen. The world would suggest that our… More

Jan 18 What God Says About Our Spiritual Gifts / Romans 12:3-8

Brad Bell

Though the world might suggest this life is about accommodating self, God says we are gifted by Him to benefit others. However, identifying our spiritual gifts and utilizing them within the body of Christ is a lost art. Unfortunately the trend toward consumerism has influenced the church, and many… More

Jan 11 Presenting Our Bodies and Minds to God / Romans 12:1-2

PJ Lewis

As we turn the page from chapter 11 to chapter 12 in Romans, Paul turns from theology to practice. What do we do now, knowing what God has done for us and with us? In light of the mercies of God shown to us over the previous chapters, we are to respond with worship. But what is the reasonable way to… More

Jan 4 January 2015 Baptism Service

Chris Schultz / Brad Bell

Throughout the Gospels we see a Savior who came to seek and save the lost and the broken, and bring them into His family. Today we celebrate the goodness and grace of God through the work and person of Jesus Christ as people are baptized. Baptism is an important part of a Christian’s life and a… More

Dec 28 2014 Breaking Out of Routine

Brad Bell

Routines are predictable, manageable and safe, but not always helpful. We are creatures of habit by nature. We tend to gravitate toward the same routines, the same commutes, the same spiritual exercises. Yet more of the same typically produces more of the same. Routines do not always bring about the… More

Dec 21 2014 The Scandal of Christmas / Matthew 1:1-25 / Luke 1:26-35, 2:1-20

Brad Bell

The Christmas story is so familiar to many of us that we can miss the nuance of the story, the scandal of the story, and the opportunity to see God in a special and profound way. People throughout the Bible had an expectation of the Savior who was to come, but He chose to come in obscurity, and by… More
