Faith in God and his promises for the future impacts the way we live today. In this week's sermon from Hebrews 11:1-10 we are challenged to live by faith, not by sight as we start a new year.
The last detail in Matthew's account of Jesus' birth is that Jesus would be called a Nazarene (Matthew 2:22-23). Find out why this is important and why we need to be reminded that Jesus was born and raised to be Jesus of Nazareth.
Matthew's account of Jesus' birth contains one of the most tragic events, the slaughter of the baby boys in Bethlehem. In this week's sermon we look at Jesus' flight to Egypt and Herod's murder of those boys and how that not only fulfills the Old Testament but also is meant to give you hope.
The birth of Jesus calls for a response from individuals. In Matthew 2 we see a contrast between the response of the wise men from the east and the response of King Herod in Jerusalem. The question for you is, do you respond to Jesus more like the wise men or more like King Herod? Find out the answer in this week's sermon from Matthew 2:1-12.
Every year around this time we take a week to remind ourselves of the importance of partnering with others for the advancement of the gospel. In this week's sermon we look at several passages in the Bible (Genesis 12, Exodus 19, & 1 Peter 2) and see how God has always used his people to make himself and his ways known in the world. The challenge for us is to be faithful in proclaiming the greatness of God in our world today (cf. 1 Peter 2:9-10).
