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

WE ARE THE CHURCH: MARKS OF A HEALTHY CHURCH | EXPOSITIONAL PREACHING
Is preaching outmoded and outdated, or is there some value left in preaching still? Pastor Marc argues that preaching has more than just some value. In this message, we shall begin a new series on the marks or features of a healthy church. The first and most important of these is Expositional Preaching. In fact, healthy churches delight in expositional preaching, because healthy churches delight in God and His Word."WE ARE THE CHURCH: MARKS OF A HEALTHY CHURCH | EXPOSITIONAL PREACHING".

    JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | INTOLERANT JESUS
    While the Bible is full of savory promises and comforting affirmations, it also contains unpalatable and pain-inducing things. In this message, we shall consider Jesus’ warning and entreaty regarding His own promise of life and freedom. His exclusivity is in stark contrast to the ideology of tolerance in our day, but His logic is persuasive and His promise of grace is supremely desirable. May God help us to humbly heed His warning and affectionately follow His lead."JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | INTOLERANT JESUS".

    ADVENT | CANDLELIGHT CHRISTMAS SERVICE
    Series: Advent
    The story of Christmas is profound. This narrative is not just seasonally significant, it is life-transforming all year round. In this sermon audio, we will tell the story of Christmas in the context of Christ’s ultimate work upon the cross. Because this Savior came to die, guilty sinners like us have hope that we may live. Selected readings from Scripture, several quotes from insightful theologians, and Pastor Marc’s own commentary provide the content of this joy-filled telling of the Christmas story. May the light of Christ shine through those who see and love Him today."ADVENT | CANDLELIGHT CHRISTMAS SERVICE".

    ADVENT | MAKING PEACE
    Series: Advent
    The third week of Advent usually emphasizes peace. This theme, like the others before it, is far-reaching and profound. Peace is the desire of every hope-filled person who laments the condition of the world today. Peace is the longing of every despairing sinner who knows the inevitable justice of God is ever-approaching. In this message, we shall consider the making of peace through Jesus Christ, both personally and universally. May we come to know the true peacemaker, entering into His peace now and anticipating His peace that is still yet to come. "ADVENT | MAKING PEACE".

    ADVENT | DAWN OF HOPE
    Series: Advent
    Advent is from the Latin adventus meaning “coming.” Advent is traditionally a time when Christians memorialize the coming of Christ in His incarnation and anticipate Christ’s imminent return as cosmic judge and king. There are various themes and traditions involved with the Advent season, but the most common is the systematic lighting of 5 candles as part of an Advent wreath. Each candle is representative of a theme or concept related to anticipating and celebrating the coming of Jesus Christ. Hope, Love, Joy, and Peace are the word- themes most commonly associated with the first four candles. Each is lighted in succession over the span of 4 weeks, and the fifth candle is traditionally lighted on Christmas day. The last candle symbolizes Christ Himself, and its lighting becomes the final memorial of the Christmastime expectation and celebration."ADVENT | DAWN OF HOPE".

    JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | BENEFITS FROM BLINDNESS
    Most people usually do not enjoy talking about or even admitting their weaknesses. “Ask me about what I can do, not what I cannot.” However, the Gospel of Jesus Christ is only good news to those who realize that they are helplessly weak. The beauty of the Gospel is also the offense of it. In this message, we shall observe Jesus healing a man born blind, and we shall consider the intended metaphor for spiritual eyes. May God grant us grace to admit our blindness, and may He give us new eyes to see. "JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | BENEFITS FROM BLINDNESS".
  • Nov 19, 2017JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | THE HUMBLE & GLORIOUS JUDGE
    Nov 19, 2017
    JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | THE HUMBLE & GLORIOUS JUDGE
    Many people have a favorite memory of those loved ones who have died. We all like to remember certain things about people we know, and we may even create nicknames based on a single experience with a friend. All of this is good fun, and it is often a helpful way to enjoy our relationships with others. However, Jesus Christ deserves more than a passing memory or thought. He is supremely glorious, mercifully humble, and incomparably holy. Though we may be tempted toward a flat picture of Jesus, we shall observe in this passage that Jesus is much too glorious for such a childish view."JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | THE HUMBLE & GLORIOUS JUDGE".
  • Nov 12, 2017PRAYER FOR THE CHURCH
    Nov 12, 2017
    PRAYER FOR THE CHURCH
    Those who trust and believe in Jesus as Savior are marked by love for one another. This is especially true in the context of a local church family. When a connected group of Christians grow in their understanding of the Gospel, their loving embrace of one another becomes an increasingly powerful bond. In this message we shall consider the pastoral prayer in Ephesians 1:15-23 and the model it provides for Christians in local church families.

    JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | FREEDOM TO OBEY
    In our American culture, individual freedom and personal autonomy seems to be a chief concern. While some Americans are interested in limiting the freedoms of others, no one wants to limit their own. The last great sin among us is making any absolute claim that would obligate someone to conform themselves to a standard. Even in Christianity, people often assume that Christ offers this kind of freedom – personal autonomy. Christ sets sinners free... doesn’t He? In this message, we will consider how Christ defines freedom and what true discipleship looks like."JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | FREEDOM TO OBEY".

    CELEBRATING REFORMATION | GLORY TO GOD ALONE
    In Christian theology, there is an experience described as the beatific vision. It is defined as that moment when the redeemed person sees God as He is, in full glory, and without any distortion of sin. There is a deep longing in the heart of every human to know God as He is and to be known, but this is also quite terrifying. In this message, we shall see a glimpse of the glorious God, as He has revealed Himself."CELEBRATING REFORMATION | GLORY TO GOD ALONE".
