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.

    COMMUNION SUNDAY | COMMUNION WITH ONE ANOTHER
    For nearly 2,000 years Christians have celebrated, remembered, and proclaimed the person and work of Christ through the ordinance of Communion (or Lord’s Supper). However, it may be that many Christians today are not nearly as familiar with the incredible meaning behind this essential ordinance. In this message, we shall look to a familiar passage that speaks to this subject, and we will focus our attention on the communal feature of Communion. This ordinance was always meant to evoke feelings of unity and mutuality, and we pray for God to form us accordingly.

    JOHN: THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE | BEHOLD THE LAMB OF GOD
    In American culture today, Christianity is largely perceived in one of two ways. Some see Christianity as backwards and suppressive; but others see it as casual and stylish. Both have a skewed perspective, and each demonstrates a lack of understanding regarding what Christianity is really all about. God is holy and just; He is gracious and kind. In the person and work of Christ, we may observe the fullness of God’s justice and grace on simultaneous display. In this message, we shall seek to unpack the beauty, the sorrow, and the triumph of the Lamb of God.

    Rethinking the Church : Baptist Distinctives | VALUING LIFE IN A FALLEN WORLD
    Baptists (particularly Southern Baptists) hold several beliefs dear. Among them is the belief that human life is sacred, valuable, and worthy of preservation at every stage. This integral belief, like all Baptist beliefs, comes from the conviction that the Bible demands it. However, Christians (Baptists and otherwise) are sometimes confused about what it should look like to live according to the clear teaching of Scripture. In this message, we will explore the biblical basis and the application of a belief in the sanctity of human life.

    John : That You May Believe | Grace & Truth Came To Dwell
    The God who has always been has made Himself known throughout human history. Speaking and working, judging and rescuing, He has revealed Himself progressively over time. And yet, there is one focal point of history where God’s glory breaks into the created world as a matchless thunderbolt. Unassuming yet utterly authoritative, humble yet worthy of all honor, selfless yet supremely glorious. As we look at the person of Christ on the pages of holy Scripture, we are able to see God’s grace and truth as He came to take up residence among humanity.

    John : That You May Believe | GOD’S OVERWHELMING LIGHT
    The “light” of God is symbolic of His purity, truth, blessings, and presence. Some people seem to believe that God’s presence may be enjoyed without His purity, or that His blessings may possessed without His truth. The Bible teaches that God’s light is overwhelming. It exposes wickedness, illumines darkness, condemns to death, and produces life. There is no one who is able to escape God’s light, but some receive it with humble gladness. Those who are the children of God are born from Him, as miraculous glimmers from His spectacular brilliance.

    Advent : Candlelight Service December 25, 2016
    Series: Advent
    400 years had passed since Malachi spoke the word of the Lord, saying, “I am sending you the prophet Elijah before the great and dreadful day of the LORD arrives. His preaching will turn the hearts of fathers to their children, and the hearts of children to their fathers” (Malachi 4:5-6). Those who believed the promise of God were holding on to something that seemed long forgotten by nearly everyone. Still, some anticipated the arrival of a Spirit-filled spokesman, who would prepare the people for the coming of the Lord...

    Advent | TIDINGS OF GREAT JOY
    Series: Advent
    Many Americans seem to be depressed, fearful, anxious, and pessimistic about their future. The hardships we face are certainly to be considered, but it is worth our attention to study these in light of the hardships others have faced before us (and the atrocities some are facing even today). Upon an honest reflection, one may come to realize that the world is a place of constant adversity – for everyone. Can there be joy amid all of this? If so, where is joy to be found? In this message, we will consider the tidings of great joy, which Christ embodied at His coming as the infant King.

    Advent | THE STEADFAST LOVE OF GOD
    Series: Advent
    The Psalms sing of God’s love throughout. Psalms 107, 109, and 118 all repeat the loving refrain, but none compares with the steady rhythm of Psalm 136. In 26 verses, the “steadfast love” of God is emphatically proclaimed 26 times. The steadfast love of God is what this Psalm is all about, and it reminds us of the substance of such love. God’s love is no flippant thing; He loves purposefully, profoundly, and powerfully. We shall explore the steadfast love of God from this Psalm with a special focus on the season of Advent. God’s love is most notable in the coming of Christ.
