Wednesday message:

The God of the Second Chance

Rob Perry

Using notes from a message by J. Vernon McGee, one of our deacons highlights God’s working with men, giving opportunities through a lifetime to make spiritual choices in service of the Great God of heaven.

Sunday Messages:

The Purpose and Place of the Law (Rm 5:20)

For the first time in Romans, Paul introduces the Law in a positive way, showing us one of the major purposes for the Law as an intermediary step between Adam and Christ. The Law comes in alongside sin in order to intensify the impact of ‘the transgression’ on everyone. In so doing, it also magnifies our understanding of the abundance of grace available through faith in Jesus Christ.

Distinguishing Worldly Passions (Tt 2:12, 1 Jn 2:15-17, Gal 5:19-21)

In this lesson we distinguish between things that a Christian might do (‘works of the flesh’) that are ungodly and Scripturally prohibited and the worldly desires a Christian might have (‘lusts of the flesh’) that hinder our relationship with Christ. In making this distinction we arrive at a definition of worldliness.

The Bishop Then Must Be… (1 Tim 3:2-7)

In this message we begin to look at the qualities required of a bishop or pastor. We note that these are primarily spiritual qualities, but also note that they are almost all qualities required of every Christian in other passages of Scripture. We conclude that the pastor is not a ‘super-Christian’ but a comprehensively consistent and mature Christian who exhibits these qualities in his life
