Tonight we finish Peter's sermon on Pentecost by looking at Acts 2:22-36. In these verses Peter aims to convince his Jewish audience that Jesus is truly the Messiah by showing them how God endorses Jesus throughout His life & ministry. Peter's hope is that this Jewish audience will be persuaded by the fact that the God they worship has affirmed and endorsed Jesus as both Lord & Christ. Join us as we look at this amazing sermon and what it teaches us about God the Father's view of the Son and how clearly the Son points to the glory of the Father.
Tonight we begin Peter's sermon on Pentecost by looking at Acts 2:14-21. In these first few verses of his sermon Peter quotes the prophet Joel about the coming of the last days. In these words we see what the focus of the last days will be and what this means for the church then and now. Join us as we begin looking at the first sermon of the Christian Church.
Tonight we look at Acts 2:1-13 and the coming of the Holy Spirit on the Day of Pentecost. In this passage we see how the Spirit reveals Himself to the early followers of Jesus and what this means for them as the Spirit establishes their mission. Understanding these origins of the Church help us to better understand who we are today. Join us as we look at this powerful passage.
Tonight we look at Acts 1:12-26 and Luke's account of the apostles finding Judas Iscariot's replacement. It seems strange that Luke would write of this account in between his discussion about the Holy Spirit, but upon a closer look we see that Luke is teaching us something powerful about the Spirit's work. In this story we see that God's plans and purposes are unstoppable and that the Holy Spirit works to bring God's plan to fruition. Join us we study these verses and find a God who stands unwaveringly committed to His plans, even in the midst of what seems to us as chaos.
This week we continue to build the foundation of The Church that will carry us through on series on the Book of Acts. This week we find Jesus' final words to His apostles and what the implications of these words are. The mission of The Church is grand, so Jesus' words tonight focus on what the power behind this mission will be. Join us as we talk about what fuels the work of The Church and what kind of kingdom The Church should be in the business of building.
This week we begin our study of the book of Acts, Luke's historical account of the formation and advance of the early church. Tonight we lay the foundation by looking some of the details and major themes of this great book and by looking at what our origins are as a church. Join us as we begin this amazing journey through the book of Acts.
This week we officially conclude our series on 1 Corinthians by looking back at many of the different points the apostle Paul makes concerning right behavior in the Corinthian church. As we conclude our recap we are reminded that God has called his church to be a peculiar people and that there are high expectations for how his Church should live both inside and outside of the church walls. Join us as we look at many of the key distinctives of God's people and who we are called to be at The Village Church.
Tonight we begin to look back at Paul's letter to the Corinthians pulling out the major ideas we've discussed over the past sixteen months. We'll take two weeks to look over many different points Paul has made throughout the letter to refresh what we've learned, but also to discuss who we are as The Village Church. These two weeks will serve as a great introduction to who we are as a church. Join us as we look tonight at the major Gospel doctrines Paul discusses in his letter, which will transition into next week when we look at the practical ways Corinthians calls us to live to the glory of God.
Tonight we finish our study of Paul's first letter to the church in Corinth. In closing out his letter Paul points the focus back to the Gospel of Jesus Christ in his final words to this church. We see in these final thoughts Paul's unwavering commitment to the Gospel and his heart for God's Church. Join us as we look at Paul's closing sentences and see how the Gospel must always be what is of utmost importance.
As we begin to wrap-up Paul's letter to the Corinthian church by looking at 1 Corinthians 16:1-11 we see Paul offering several quick pieces in instruction to the church. While these instructions seem like quick hits that can easily be overlooked, when we stop and pay attention to what Paul is saying we find great pieces of wisdom for the church today. Join us as we look at this passage and find what God has for us from His Word.
