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…

    COMMUNION SUNDAY: BAPTIST DISTINCTIVES |PROCLAIMING THE LORD’S DEATH UNTIL HE COMES
    Suffering and death are common to life on earth, but no one wants to think about them, much less experience them. No one in their right mind goes around looking to enter into suffering. And yet, this is exactly what God the Son did. God became a man with the expressed intent of suffering and dying. Furthermore, this suffering and dying Savior is what we celebrate every time we partake of the Lord’s Supper (or Communion) as a church body. In this message, we shall consider the counterintuitive nature of the Gospel and the genuine hope provided in Christ’s suffering."COMMUNION SUNDAY: BAPTIST DISTINCTIVES | PROCLAIMING THE LORD’S DEATH UNTIL HE COMES ".

    RETHINKING THE CHURCH: BAPTIST DISTINCTIVES |BAPTISM: RAISED TO NEW LIFE
    Every community, association, and group has at least one designating sign of inclusion. If you are included, then you bear the mark or marks of the group. If you are excluded (even if only for a time), then you lack the designating mark or marks. Christianity has a number of designating signs, but the singular initiating sign of Christian discipleship is “believer’s baptism.” Believers in Christ seek to obey and learn from their Savior and Master, knowing that every benefit comes from being united to Christ. In this message, we shall consider some basic questions about baptism, and we shall also note the life associated with those who are baptized followers of Christ."RETHINKING THE CHURCH: BAPTIST DISTINCTIVES | BAPTISM: RAISED TO NEW LIFE ".

    JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE |TRUE LOVE IN A HATEFUL WORLD
    When the average non-Christian person hears the Gospel of Jesus Christ, hatred is probably not going to be the word that best describes their reaction. Apathy, confusion, curiosity, excitement, or a host of other words might more readily be applicable to what is likely to be perceived. However, Jesus dropped a bombshell (as He commonly does) when He said, “the world hates me” (Jn. 7:7). In this message, we shall consider the meaning of this statement and Jesus’ truly loving commitment to sinners among a hateful world. Furthermore, we shall attempt to embrace the love Jesus offers and the example He has put forth."JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | TRUE LOVE IN A HATEFUL WORLD ".

    JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE |LIFE-GIVING FOOD FROM GOD
    The Gospel of Jesus Christ is so much more profound and powerful than most of us imagine. The Bible speaks of a decisively loving God and the demonstration of that love in real human history, as well as God applying that love to our lives in real time. The Bible explains what it means that God loves guilty sinners and how some sinners respond with overwhelming gratitude to that love. In this message, we will plumb the depths of God’s decisive love. There is no doubt that we shall, by God’s grace, come away amazed, humbled, grateful, and confident."JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | LIFE-GIVING FOOD FROM GOD ".

    JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE |THE BETTER PROPHET
    Just imagine it... A multitudinous crowd gathers around one man. The man is known far and wide as a healer, a miracle-worker, and a teacher from God Himself. Speculation about this man is out of control, and there are mixed feelings about who he really is. The man tells everyone to sit on the cool grass, and he spontaneously creates enough bread to feed the whole bunch, as much as they want. “The legend is true!” the people thought. “Let’s have him as king! He can provide for us, and we will be his people!” However, the miraculous teacher refuses the offer. He will have none of their acclaim, for his kingly office is not theirs to issue. In this message, we will consider the point of John’s narrative and how we might wisely listen to the better prophet – Jesus Christ."JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | THE BETTER PROPHET ".

    RETHINKING THE CHURCH: BAPTIST DISTINCTIVES |THE EARTHY WORD OF GOD
    Southern Baptists have traditionally been called “people of the book” because of their tight grip on the Bible as the word of God. Many in higher education today deny such a ‘naïve’ claim about the Bible, but it is still quite common for regular Christians to say they believe the Bible is truly the word of God. And yet, the average Christian lives as though the Bible is irrelevant, outdated, and inaccessible. Many Bibles sit on shelves or tables without the slightest bit of wear, since the purchaser of that precious book hasn’t the inkling to mine its innumerable treasures. In this message, we shall consider what Southern Baptists mean by saying, “the Bible is the word of God;” and we shall consider some practical applications for those who want to live as though they really believe it is.

    JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE |SEEKING GLORY
    All those who are in Christ will be glorified with Him. Additionally, the Church (Christ’s visible body in the world) is adorned with God’s glory, shining brightly as she reflects the glory of Her King and Savior. And yet, the glory only God can give often appears humiliating from the worldly perspective. Individual Christians and local churches alike are frequently the object of ridicule and not reverence. What are we to make of this? Is God’s word contradictory? How can inglorious Christians, which are the members of an inglorious Church, seek God’s glory in the world?"JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | SEEKING GLORY ".
