In the Beginning

Media, Sermons, The Pentateuch: Rescue East of Eden | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

The Pentateuch: Rescue East of Eden

Today we begin a new series through the first five books of the Bible, known as the Pentateuch. This will be a five-week overview series, during which we’ll spend one week on each book. We begin our study with Genesis, the (true) story of beginnings. Grasping the big picture of this book is crucial for understanding the rest of the Bible—and also your life and that’s no small matter. Genesis takes us deep, fast.

Cultivating a Culture of Care

Media, Sermons, Transformed | by Pastor Craig Sturm

Transformed

“Transformed” is a 4-part series exploring the transforming power of God in our lives. We all know from our own lives and our experience of the world around us, that real, lasting change is elusive. Today, we wrap up the series by thinking through God’s call on us to “bear one another’s burdens” (Gal. 6:2) — and how that contributes to our cultivation of a culture of care that is conducive to change.

This is the True Grace of God

1 Peter: Living in Exile, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Luke Davis

1 Peter: Living in Exile

Today in 1 Peter 5:6-14 we wrap up our series through the first epistle by the Apostle Peter. His aim throughout the letter has been to declare the true grace of God and have the church resolutely stand therein. However, God’s kindness to us may look quite different than we expect. As a good Father, though, He cares for us and is intent upon His children gaining His perspective so we might persevere.

Humble Pastors

1 Peter: Living in Exile, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

1 Peter: Living in Exile

Today we continue our series through 1 Peter. Peter’s letter is theologically weighty, yet simultaneously down-to-earth, and is filled fresh encouragements to wholehearted faithfulness while living in exile. In 1 Peter 5:1-5, Peter nears the end of his letter and directs his attention to the elders of the local churches to whom he writes. Jesus’ local churches will only be as healthy as its leaders. So, he gives six emphatic exhortations that are just as relevant today as when they were first written.

Unsurprised by the Fiery Trial

1 Peter: Living in Exile, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

Today, in 1 Peter 4:12-19, Peter offers his last major call to endure suffering for Jesus’ sake with faith-filled hope. Following Jesus can be a costly calling, so don’t be surprised by the fiery trial. But, it is worth it—He is worth it.

Living as an End-of-the-Age People

1 Peter: Living in Exile, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

1 Peter: Living in Exile

1 Peter is an ancient letter written by the Apostle Peter, the beloved disciple of Jesus, between A.D. 62-63 from Rome, to churches spread throughout Asia Minor (modern day Turkey). His aim was to encourage them—and us—to stand firm (1 Pet. 5:12) amidst trials, persecution, and heartache in a world that is not our true home. Today, in 4:7-11, Peter turns his attention to how we should relate to one another as an end-of-the-age people.
