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…

Ephesians 1:7

SERMON PODCAST

JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | THE COMING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
On the last night of Jesus’ earthly ministry, Jesus was preparing His disciples for His departure from them. His hope-filled encouragement was misunderstood by those disciples, because they were focused on how much they wanted Jesus to stay with them. However, Jesus was on a mission much bigger than those several men, and Jesus was telling them that He was on His way to fulfill an ancient promise from God about a new and eternal covenant. The monumental promise of God’s Spirit with His people is Jesus’ focal point in our passage here, and we shall consider the deep and impactful meaning of this promise and its fulfillment."JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | THE COMING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT ".

    JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | BEING CHRISTIAN IN THIS WORLD
    What do you want in this world? Do you hope for a quiet life of moderate success? Do you eagerly strive for the brass ring, longing to achieve more than most? Do you desire stability, safety, longevity, or something else? What has God promised to Christians in this world? The testimony of the Bible and the history of Christianity shows that this world is not a friend but an enemy to Christ and His followers. In this message, we shall consider Christ’s unsavory promise in John 15:18-16:4 regarding the hate-filled world and Christ’s call for Christians to faithfully bear witness to Christ amidst the hostility."JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | BEING CHRISTIAN IN THIS WORLD ".

    JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | DISCIPLES ABIDE AND REJOICE IN CHRIST
    The Christian life is a paradoxical combination of simultaneous striving and resting. Anyone who has ever set out to live in light of Christ’s commands can testify to this enigmatic and exhausting and enlivening experience. While the Bible never explains the mechanics of this relationship, the Bible commonly implores sinners everywhere to rest in the joy-filled promises of God in Christ and to strive to abide in this marvelous Savior. In this message, we shall consider the command, the warning, and the promise of Christ in John 15:1-11."JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | DISCIPLES ABIDE AND REJOICE IN CHRIST ".

    STAND ALONE MESSAGE |DISCERNING TRUTH
    God’s word is profitable for teaching for correction and for training in righteousness (2 Tim. 3:16-17). We may believe all kinds of things, but only those things that align with God’s word (or at least do not contradict it) are true. One of the great benefits of having God’s words preserved for us in written form is that we have a solid and unchanging authority upon which to rest our faith/belief. In this message, we shall consider the need and benefits of discerning truth by measuring our beliefs against God’s word."STAND ALONE MESSAGE | DISCERNING TRUTH".

    JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | BLESSINGS & MARKS OF THE TRUE CHRISTIAN
    We know that God’s gracious love extends to the whole world (Jn. 3:16; Matt. 5:43-48). This fact is a great comfort and a warm encouragement to those who may feel unlovable. However, this doctrine of God’s universal love is sometimes presumed to be scarcely different from God’s distinct and Fatherly love for His children (1 Jn. 3:1, 4:9–10). It is a mistake to think that God’s love for each person is exactly the same. In this message, we shall consider the promises Jesus made to His disciples in John 14 and the special way in which Jesus distinguished His disciples from the world."JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | BLESSINGS & MARKS OF THE TRUE CHRISTIAN".

    JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | THE ONLY SAVIOR
    In the gospel, we may learn that God Himself has come to earth in order to rescue guilty sinners from their helpless estate. In Christ, God offers sinners a singular pathway by which they may enter into life itself. The claim is profound, the offer is gracious, and the promise is a great comfort to any who will acknowledge their own thorough weakness. In this message, we shall consider Jesus’ exclusive claim and gracious plea in John 14."JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | THE ONLY SAVIOR".

    STAND ALONE |TOGETHER FOR THE GOSPEL
    Every New Testament Church is called by God to live commendably together for the gospel of Christ. This is, in fact, the central task of the local church. Living a life worthy of the gospel is not some form of works-based righteousness. Rather, it is the idea that who we truly are and what we really believe is not unrelated to what we actually do. Local churches are intended by God as outposts of His kingdom on earth, where His doctrines are made known and visible among the congregation. In this message, we shall consider what it means to live in a manner worthy of the gospel."STAND ALONE | TOGETHER FOR THE GOSPEL".

    JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE |LOVE ONE ANOTHER
    God is love. Such a statement is profoundly true, and it has a marked effect on Christians. It is not unusual for people to want or to express love, but it is unusual for people in this world to experience the kind of love God defines. Like many of God’s attributes, we see the fullest expression of God’s love in Christ. Furthermore, Christ calls and empowers His disciples (i.e. Christians) to love like Jesus loves. In this message, we shall consider Jesus’ command to ‘love one another’ in the context of the local church family."JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | LOVE ONE ANOTHER".
