This week we look at Genesis 1:3-23 and the first five days of creation. When looking at the work of creation it would seem, by listening to many of the voices today, that the age of the earth is of prime importance. Do we live on a young earth or an old earth? Does Genesis 1:3-23 speak of literal twenty-four hour days or does each day represent a span of time? Join us as we study this passage to see if Scripture sees these questions as essential or if Scripture presents to us subject matter of much greater importance.
Tonight we look at the first two verses of Genesis. We begin the foundational truth that God is the Creator. This act of God’s grace displays his power, majesty and creativity. In these first two verses we discover fundamental truths of how God created and by looking closely we see the expanse of what He created as He creates the heavens and the earth. Join us as we study the orthodox confessions of what it means to believe that God is the Creator of all things.
Tonight we begin our series on the Book of Genesis, Origins. This series is titles “Origins” because this is exactly what the Book of Genesis presents to us, a series of origins. In Genesis we are able to trace our roots back to discover who we are and why we exist. We are able to discover the origins of evil and the plan of God’s redemption for His people. Most importantly, we are able to see who our God is, a God of justice, grace, mercy, love and faithfulness. Join us tonight as we deal with some introductory material and then look at the beginning of verse 1.
Tonight, as we conclude our series on Biblical Worship, we look at what elements of worship we find in the New Testament. As we explore this topic we find that the NT Church used God’s instructions from the Tabernacle/Temple worship in the OT as a template. We find that what God has put in place for His people to worship Him is clear and purposeful. Join us as we discuss how the church should continue to worship today and why God’s instructions are what will bring us the greatest joy in worship and Him the greatest glory.
Tonight we continue our series on Biblical Worship by looking at the different elements of worship. We begin tonight by framing how we even begin making the decision on what elements should be included in worship by discussing the Regulative Principle vs. the Normative Principle. We then move to look at the Old Testament and what God institutes as true and right worship for the Israelite people. Join us as we begin studying this important topic.
In the second sermon of “Biblical Worship” series we discuss what our posture should be in worship. In our sermon last week we studied the fact that God demands our worship and at the same time worship is a gift of God to His people. Tonight, we move forward to discuss how we should come to worship our great God. We begin by looking at Leviticus 10 and then we move to look at four postures we should strive to pursue each week when we gather to worship. Join us as we study this important and serious topic.
Tonight we begin our short series on Biblical worship, “How Then Should We Worship.” The topic of worship, true Biblical worship, is largely a lost topic in the local church today. What does it truly mean to worship God? Why do we worship? What should our posture be in worship? What elements should have a part in worship? We will discuss all of these topics and more within this series. Tonight we focus on the God that we worship? Who is it that we worship and why do we worship Him? God demands our worship, but this statement alone raises many other questions. Join us as we explore this topic together.
Tonight we conclude our series through the book of Acts by studying Acts 28:17-31. In these final verses of Luke’s account we see that Luke’s focus in squarely on the Gospel and its proclamation. This puts in view for us what has been truly important for Luke throughout his entire history of the early church. As we look at these verses we will see how the triumph and advancement of the Gospel is what was most important then and continues to be most important now. Also, we will see how this triumph is due entirely to the work of our sovereign God who always fulfills His promises.
Tonight we look at the first half of Acts 28. In these first 16 verses we find Luke pointing to the provision of God in various ways. Luke also highlights Paul’s faith and generosity. Join us as we walk through this passage and look specifically at these themes and how they challenge us as God’s children.
Tonight we study Acts 27 and Luke’s account of Paul’s journey by boat to Rome. In this tumultuous story we find great detail on Luke’s part in his descriptive account and great confidence in Paul’s posture to the storm that they encounter. Paul’s posture of confidence seems to be rooted in his understanding that he belongs to God. Join us as we discuss this passage and the idea that who we belong to makes all the difference when we encounter the storms that life throws at us.
