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…

Ephesians 1:7

SERMON PODCAST

Sep 16, 2018
JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | THE CUP IS EMPTY
The first question of the Heidelberg catechism is, “What is your only comfort in life and death?” This is a good question, indeed! How would you answer? Well, the writers begin their answer, saying, “That I, with body and soul, both in life and in death, am not my own, but belong to my faithful Savior Jesus Christ, who, with His precious blood has fully satisfied for all my sins...” In this message, we shall consider the “cup” which Christ consumed for His people at the cross. We shall marvel at the substitutionary work of Christ, and we shall praise Him that the cup is empty. "JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | THE CUP IS EMPTY".

    JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | THE GREATEST PRAYER
    If you could hear Jesus pray for you, what would you expect to hear? Would He pray for your health? How about your safety? Maybe your family relationships? Surely, Jesus cares about the ills of your community’s, your state’s, and your nation’s interests? It seems as though Christ cares about all of these things, but His chief concern is for the preservation, mission, and goal of His people in the world. In this message, we shall consider Jesus’ High Priestly Prayer, and we shall observe and apply the profound contents of the greatest prayer ever prayed.""JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | THE GREATEST PRAYER".

    JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | PEACE AMID TRIBULATION
    In this message, we shall consider Jesus’ words of warning and encouragement at the close of His final discourse in John 16:25-33. We shall seek to observe how Christians may enjoy Christ, who is the all-satisfying, joy-inducing, peace-bringing world-conqueror. We shall seek to learn how Christians may enjoy peace in Christ amid the tribulation of this world."JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | PEACE AMID TRIBULATION".

    JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | EXAMINATION & REMEMBRANCE (PART 1)
    The Lord’s Supper is a communal act, whereby Christians memorialize God’s covenant with sinners in Christ and together reaffirm their membership in it. In this two-part message series, we shall consider the rebukes and commands in 1 Corinthians 11:23-29 to better understand what it means and what it should look like for Christians to partake of the Lord’s Supper. We both examine and remember, and we do both of these with our eyes upon Christ in His glory as Savior and Lord. "JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | EXAMINATION & REMEMBRANCE (PART 1)".

    JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | FROM SORROW TO JOY
    The Bible shows us a picture of awful sorrow, and it gives us hope for lasting joy in the midst of troubling times. In fact, Jesus speaks directly to the plight of His disciples, dealing with real sorrow and speaking of never-ending joy. In this we may learn that joy is found, not in avoiding sorrow, but by pressing into God through Christ, eagerly awaiting the fullness of His promises in the gospel."JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | FROM SORROW TO JOY ".

    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 ".
