What is Church Membership/Discipline?

, , Media, Sermons, The Church: God's New Humanity, in Jesus | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

The Church: God's New Humanity, in Jesus

We continue our series, The Church: God’s New Humanity, in Jesus. The local church is far more important to the Christian life than most realize. Often, this is because we haven’t taken the time to ask the simple, but profound, question, “What is Jesus’ church?” This morning we ask, what is church membership? What about discipline? Are these life-giving biblical practices or legalistic man-made constructs? These are good questions that deserve careful biblical answers.

Loving the Body of Christ

Media, One Another'ing, Sermons | by Pastor Justin Keogh

One Another'ing

Today we kick off our One Another’ing sermon series, which looks at the countercultural character of Jesus’ church, through the 50+ “one another” commandments. We are empowered by the gospel to love one another, to serve, to encourage, to forgive, to disciple, to pray, to show hospitality to one another, and much more. We’re going to start by looking at the Apostle Paul’s instructions to the church in Corinth to live as the body of Christ.

In Fact, Christ Has Been Raised

Good Friday & Easter, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

Good Friday & Easter

On Good Friday we remembered Jesus’ substitutionary death on the cross. Today, on Easter, we celebrate Jesus’ climactic victory over the grave through his resurrection. But, did he rise? How do we know? Can we know? Even if he did, what difference does it make for us today? These are the questions the Apostle Paul addresses head-on in 1 Cor. 15:12-20. Let’s dive in together…

Persevering in Strength and Hope

Media, Sermons, The Living Word 2019 | by Pastor Craig Sturm

The Living Word 2019

Today is the first of five fall sermons in a series we are calling The Living Word, based on Hebrews 4:12, in which God’s Word is described as ”living and active.” His Word is alive and changes lives. To demonstrate this we asked five pastors, and leaders, to share a passage the Lord has been using in their lives to convict, comfort and/or challenge them. Our hope is to show the living nature of God’s word today and, in turn, be moved to study it, trust it, and immerse our lives in it. Today, Pastor Craig kicks off the series with a message from 1 Corinthians 15:58.

Church-Focused, People-Loving, and City-Renewing

First Things, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

First Things

What are the first things in the life of Jesus’ church? Even if you don’t follow Jesus, you’ve likely wondered, “What is all of this about?” You’re not alone. It can be confusing. So, in this five-week series, we’re considering foundational biblical principles for a healthy, Jesus-treasuring, people-loving, Spirit-empowered, life-transforming local church. This study is built on the backbone of DCC’s mission statement and ten core convictions. Who are we? Why do we exist? What are we doing? That’s what this series is all about-for God’s glory, and our deepest joy.

Singleness and the Mystery of Christ

, Media, On Being Human, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

On Being Human

One of the most profound questions we face in life is, “What is a human being?” This question lies at the heart of some of the most significant and controversial issues of our day – and the implications are huge. So, this fall, we’re laying out a biblical anthropology to explore what it means to be human and how that impacts our understanding of relationships, gender and sexuality. Fortunately, the Bible is not silent on these issues. Today, we look at what the Bible has to say about singleness.

Disciple: The Living Church

Disciple: Living For Jesus, Media, Sermons | by Pastor David Parker

Disciple: Living For Jesus

Over the last 5 weeks, we’ve been unpacking what it means to be a disciple of Jesus, and what it practically looks like to follow Him in our everyday lives. As the good news of the gospel penetrates into our hearts and lives, it makes us a new people who are zealous for good works, and growing in their love for God and others. Today, we’re going to wrap up this series and see how our discipleship isn’t something that takes place in isolation, but something that God designed to be worked out in the context of the local church.

Five life-giving, joy-producing, hope-creating resurrection realities

Good Friday & Easter, Media | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

This morning we gather to celebrate Jesus' climactic defeat of Satan, sin, and death through his bodily resurrection from the grave. In 1Corinthians 15:12-20 the Apostle Paul lays out what it would mean for our faith if Jesus had not been raised from the dead, and assures us that He has, in fact, been raised. In light of this fact, we examine the realities that those who are in Christ are now forgiven, our faith is not in vain, we will not perish but spend eternity with God, our spreading of the Gospel is relevant and necessary, and we can be counted as enviable because our identity is in Jesus.
