Sunday Morning Message

 
 

Our 2018  Message Theme is:

"Truth for Today: Hope for Tomorrow"

 

 In Rock Solid Truth is that which not only guides your life today.  It is also that which leads us to Hope For Tomorrow.  Christians seek through years of devotion and study to identify the rock solid truths of the Bible and then, by faith in Jesus, they seek to apply these truths to how they live today.  The amazing thing we discover is that as we apply these truths to our lives today, our ability to have great hope for the future multiplies at a heavenly rate! 

 

Each Sunday Morning Message in 2018 will deal with Rock Solid Truths from the Bible that we, as Christians, must know and accept into our lives.  Where our Christian Growth can get stalled is when we either do not know these truths or we do not choose to believe these truths.  When that happens, our Spiritual Maturity will suffer and instead of great hope, we will live with great doubts and fears.  Jesus never called us to live a life of doubt or fear.  He called us to live a Spirit-Filled Life in which we worship Father God in Spirit and in Truth and as a result we have a great hope for our future which is guaranteed by Father  God's infinite love for us.

Come each Sunday and see the Great Truths of the Bible that will change your Spiritual Life, that will kick start your Spiritual Growth, that will energize you for the days ahead.  Sunday mornings at 10:30AM in our Sanctuary.

 

 

 
 

This Sunday April 29th, Pastor Chuck will bring a message entitled:

"The Authority of the Bible"

based on 2 Timothy 3:14-17.  Throughout the history of the Bible, it has been under attack.  Even in this month a national magazine has come out saying that the Bible is not worth the reading!  Why does the world constantly attack the Bible?  The answer to this is seen the the effects of the Fall on the lives of people even today.  If we can come to some place in our thinking that the Bible is not authoritative, then we can disregard the message of the Bible and be content to go our own way that seems good to us.  The problem is that the Bible is the Inspired Word of God and it speaks with all the authority of God to our lives today.  Thus, if the Word of God has the Authority of God, then we who are the creation of God must be subject to the Word of God.  The funny thing here is that the message of the Bible is focused on the amazing love of God for us in that He has provided the way by which we can be set free from the curse of sin and to live eternally with Him.  What is so bad about that? Why would the world attack that message?  What is their motive for wanting people to think that there is no God or if there is a God, all He wants to do is to tell you what to do and ruin all your fun? 

The World belongs to our adversary, Satan. It is his desire that you would spend your eternity in the Lake of Fire with him, suffering the same torment as he will for his rebellion against Father God.  So, he lies and he deceives people into thinking false things about God and about the Bible.  But it you take the time to study the Bible, you will learn that the message of the Bible is God's amazing love for you and His most sincere desire for you to spend your eternity with Him.

The Apostle Paul was writing his last letter to his beloved Timothy.  As he wrote, he was not sure he would ever see Timothy again.  Ends up that Timothy arrived in Rome no too long after Paul had been killed by Rome.  In this precious letter we see Paul stressing to Timothy, and by inspiration of the Holy Spirit, he was stressing to us the importance of the Scriptures. 

This Sunday, Pastor Chuck will bring a message on understanding the importance of the Authority of the Word of God and he will encourage us all to dive deeply into our own personal study of the Bible that we might know the heart of God and that we might find God's Salvation for us found by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. We will hear of the importance of the Word of God and how it guides our lives today to live in the love and peace of Father God.

You are invited to come and to enjoy this time together as we learn more about how God would have us to have Truth for Today and Hope for Tomorrow.  Truth comes from a knowledge of the Word of God and Hope comes from a relationship with the One who made all of this possible for us to experience today.  Come and learn the Truths of the Bible so that you too can have the hope for Tomorrow that faith in God will give you today.
