We've all been separated from God but God anxiously watches and waits for His children to return home to Him.
Denis tells this beloved parable through the eyes of the prodigal son this Sunday at Open Arms, 10am. Hope to see you there.
Jesus said: “Do not judge or you too will be judged” Matthew 7:1. This does not mean we as Christians are not supposed to judge right from wrong. It does however mean that we need to make sure our judgement is not hypocritical and or self-righteously motivated.
Join us tomorrow as we discuss our judgement Vs God's judgement.
You know that our world seems to be all messed up (discombobulated), like it is confused or disconnected.
It leads to more and more brokenness and more and more suffering. Why? The Bible tells us that it is because we are disconnected from our God and because we refuse to acknowledge Him and as a result, our God gives us over to judgement. This is one manifestation of God's wrath.
However, It does not end with a sad note for those who get reconnected through Jesus. Your way or God's way, that is a decision God leaves up to you.
Like the man sitting on the tracks below, your way, I promise, will not end well.
Many have asked the questions, "Why is there evil in the world?" and " If there is a God, what is He doing about it?" The Bible teaches us the answers to both of these questions. Come out to the Elementary School Gym and listen to the message on this subject, "Wrath of God Against All Wickedness."
We may have heard and even experienced that it is by grace alone through faith alone that we are made right with God. However, many are confused in what that really means. The book of Romans in the Bible is steeped in theology and explains what it means to have faith (be a Christian) and then it explains how it is walked out. Join us as we begin a journey not only at our NEW LOCATION, the elementary school gym, but also through the book of Romans,"By Faith Alone"
We have been looking at what it truly means to follow Jesus. There is something that becomes a barrier that hinders the process. And everyone, whether we recognize it or not, suffers from it. It is called PRIDE. How do we recognize it and what can we do about it? This week's message "The Hindrances of Pride"
What is true happiness? I believe that is a question that many if not all have asked,
Is it in our relationships?
Is it in our status?
Is it in our health?
Is it in our location?
Is it religion?
Is it our charity?
True happiness is our topic this Sunday. See you there.
We all have made hasty decisions without considering the future or whats it mean down the road. Many leave high school and go to university spending thousands of dollars without considering how much commitment it will require.How about relationships. some love relationships when it is fun and it satisfies them but if it is about the other person forget about it. that's to hard , it's too much like work.. We are doing a short series on what it means to follow Jesus. This week " How committed are You?"
Have you ever felt undervalued by others?Do you think God feels that way? The question we want to ask ourselves is ,What worth do you place on Jesus? This weeks message. "What's He Worth To You?"
There are many things we can follow in this world. You can follow someone on facebook, you can follow your favorite TV series, you can follow your favorite sport. However Jesus calls us to follow Him and there is nothing that compares to that. This week we introduce a series on what it means to follow Jesus. I can't think of a better way to begin this series. Please join us as we meet and dedicate our land to Following Jesus." Follow Me"
