We exist for God’s glory and our joy through
GOSPEL-CENTERED WORSHIP, COMMUNITY,
SERVICE & MULTIPLICATION.

What is the Gospel?

In short, the Gospel is the story of God’s plan to save sinners. Throughout human history, God has been actively involved in revealing Himself as both righteous Judge and gracious Savior. The story of God’s redeeming work may be best understood if we begin with creation and work our way towards Jesus. In fact, it is a good rule of thumb to always be in pursuit of Jesus.

WORSHIP
 
What is Gospel-centered Worship?
 
Worship begins with revelation. The God of the universe makes Himself known through revelation and humanity is made to respond to such a display with adoration, gratitude, humility, praise, celebration, and wonder. Because humans are naturally sinful, an essential aspect of Worship is the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Therefore, Gospel-centered Worship includes a human response to the revelation of God as He makes Himself known through Jesus Christ as the Savior of sinners.
Membership-iconCOMMUNITY
 
What is Gospel-centered Community?
 
Community in creation, especially in humanity, reflects the nature of God Himself. God is triune; He is Father, Son, and Spirit. As such, God is communal and relational, and humanity is meant to reflect this essential aspect of God’s own nature. While each Christian has a personal relationship with God, that relationship is neither private nor separate from other Christians. In fact, the Christian journey and its destination are always meant to be understood in the context of community with others.
hands-iconSERVICE
 
What is Gospel-centered Service?
 
Serving others without any expectation of receiving anything in return has been a hallmark of Christian lives over the last several centuries.  Self-sacrifice and costly service was embodied in no one more than Jesus Christ.  God the Son set aside the riches of His glory and took upon Himself the poverty of sinful man in order to rescue sinners from their hopeless condition of slavery to sin and death.  Christians, therefore, serve willingly and cheerfully because they have been served by Jesus Christ.

MULTIPLICATION
 
What is gospel-centered multiplication?
  
Churches were never meant to be holding tanks for Christians. Rather, it is the role of every Christian and every church to make disciples of all peoples (Matt. 28:18-20). Our disciple-making efforts are not limited to FBC Diana. In fact, we understand that every Gospel-centered disciple-making effort across the globe is something to which we are inherently linked. Gospel-centered Multiplication is our effort to multiply disciples and disciple makers across the street and around the world. This includes support for church planting, short-term missions involvement and support, and long-term missions involvement and support.
 

In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, which he lavished upon us…

SERMON PODCAST

JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE |THE PROFOUND LOVE OF GOD
The best-known verse of the Bible is likely John 3:16. One major reason for this is the verse’s focus on the love of God. God’s love is wide and selfless, available and welcoming. And yet, it is very likely that the love of God many people think about when they think of this verse is far less profound than the love of God truly explained there. John’s Gospel sets God’s love on spectacular display. In this message, we shall investigate and marvel at the profound love of God."JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | THE PROFOUND LOVE OF GOD ".

    JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE |JESUS AND THE SNAKE
    The heart of the Gospel of Jesus Christ is quite a paradox. The King stoops low to serve, the Lord of all pays the debt of the debtor, and the Righteous One shows grace and love for the unrighteous. These are true, profound, and compelling, but there is another Gospel-paradox that is not so widely appreciated or understood. We are told in the Scripture that Jesus was accursed so that sinners may be blessed. Such a concept is unpalatable and offensive when rightly understood, but it is also most glorious and wonderful to those who look to this Savior and believe. "JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | JESUS AND THE SNAKE ".

    The Great I AM
    Jesus is the Great I AM. Such a statement may not mean much unless one has some background and context. But when the expression is understood rightly, it is profound beyond measure. In this message we consider the proper name of God, the use of it throughout the Bible, and Jesus’ claim of it for Himself. The human savior is also the covenant-making God of Israel. Such a reality is both wondrous and magnificent."The Great I AM_".

    JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | The Saving Work Of The Spirit
    The hymns we sing, say more than we often realize. Just consider a line from Amazing Grace: “’Twas grace that taught my heart to fear, and grace my fears relieved...” God must indeed teach sinners like us to fear Him before He may alleviate those fears. The Bible speaks of salvation in various stages or features. In this message, we shall consider Jesus’ teaching on ‘regeneration.’ What does it mean? Where does it come from? And how does this inspire glory to God?

    JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | THE UNSETTLING GLORY OF CHRIST
    Christianity enjoys quite a bit of comfort and luxury in America today. In addition to this place of plush prestige, Christianity in America is also confidently pragmatic. American Christians have more Bibles, more education, better access to theological teaching, greater facilities, more plentiful resources, and less cultural opposition than most every other Christian in the world today, but they also regularly fail to share the Gospel with a friend, diligently study the Bible, or pray. One major reason for this is a settled comfort with the status quo. In this message, we seek to explore the unsettling glory of Christ and the implications it should have upon us."JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | THE UNSETTLING GLORY OF CHRIST ".

    RETHINKING THE CHURCH: BAPTIST DISTINCTIVES | AN ASSEMBLY OF SAINTS
    Southern Baptists are historically a people of deep conviction. They tend to have strong feelings about things, and they tend to voice those feelings with boisterous arguments. Over the decades, it has become clear that Southern Baptists have some distinctive marks. One of those distinctives is a Southern Baptist definition of church membership. In this message, we will look at what Southern Baptists have understood the Bible to teach regarding church membership, and we will be challenged to consider our own practices in light of this teaching.

    JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | THE ROUSING GLORY OF CHRIST
    It has often been said that Christianity in America is marked by a low view of God. The biblical convictions that mark genuine Christianity are perceived as unimportant, irrelevant, and outdated among many professing Christians in the Western world. However, this view of God is simply incompatible with the biblical record. If God is anything, He is astonishing, weighty, and glorious. Christ reveals much about God during an unsuspecting wedding party, and we want to marvel at His exceeding glory.

    ENTRUSTING WITH THE GOSPEL
    Most every Christian in America knows that he/she should be both a disciple and a disciple-maker, but very few Christians understand what that means and how important it is. In our age of individualism and personal autonomy, not many people are thinking much about others. The responsibility to invest in others, especially for the sake of spiritual benefit, belongs to every Christian. Because we have received the Gospel of Jesus Christ, we have been entrusted with that good message. And because we have been entrusted with it, we are to hand it along to others as well. Disciple-making disciples - that’s what every faithful Christian is.

    JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | JESUS CHANGES EVERYTHING
    In Southern America today, you’ll likely find many people who think well of Jesus Christ. It seems most people think Jesus stands for socially respectable and admirable things. People will sometimes quote Jesus or cite something He did in order to validate their own ideas about good and right actions. However, the Jesus of popular culture is much safer and more appropriate than the Jesus of the Bible. The biblical Jesus changes everything. He changes what His followers see, what they do, and what they believe. One can hardly have a genuine relationship with Jesus without having their world turned upside-down.
