Mar 22 Teaching to Send and Sending to Teach / Matthew 16:13-18 / Acts 1-28

Brad Bell

In Matthew 16, Jesus says He will build His church. What is the church? We get the term from the Greek compound ecclesia, which comes from two words, ek, meaning “out from” and kaleo, which means “to call.” From the very beginning, this concept of church has had nothing to do with brick and mortar… More

Mar 15 A People of the Gospel / Romans 16:1-27

Shea Sumlin

In this final chapter of the book of Romans, the Apostle Paul sends his greeting to a very diverse group of people that God used to help build the church at Rome. He lists 35 names in this chapter that are faceless to us but were significant enough to God to have them recorded in His Word forever… More

Mar 8 Living on Mission / Romans 15:14-33

PJ Lewis

Paul begins to conclude this letter with a word of encouragement about the mission of connecting people to God and to each other in every neighborhood. As he explains to the Romans why he has been delayed in seeing them, Paul also lays down some key principles we will consider regarding our lives of… More

Mar 1 The Higher Value of Mission / Romans 15:1-13

PJ Lewis

As he wraps up his thoughts on navigating through the gray areas of the Christian life, Paul reminds us of the common motivation we all have no matter where we land on amoral issues. Maturity is shown when we welcome those with different views and convictions, knowing that we all have the same… More

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
