Be Kind To One Another

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

One Another'ing

We continue 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. Today, we’ll look at Paul’s instruction to put off our old selves, and to put on Christ, which leads to kindness, tenderheartedness, and forgiveness.

God’s New Humanity

, Media, New Year Essentials 2020, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

New Year Essentials 2020

We are continuing a set of annual sermons we refer to as our New Year Essentials. These sermons address subjects and important themes that we must repeatedly return to for the glory of God and the transformation of our inner and outer lives. These are not, of course, the same sermons. Rather, they are different sermons, taking different angles, on issues we need to come back to again-and-again. Today, in Ephesians 2:11-22, we consider the new humanity that God is forging, in Christ, and our role displaying it.

Edifying Speech

Media, Sermons, The Living Word 2019 | by Pastor Justin Keogh

The Living Word 2019

Today is the third 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 Justin expounds on Paul’s instructions for our speech in Ephesians 4:29-30.

God-Centered, Jesus-Treasuring, and Spirit-Empowered

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.

The Wonder of Jesus’ Local Church

, Media, New Year Essentials 2019, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

New Year Essentials 2019

Today we are considering the role of the local church in God’s unfolding story. What is the point of the local church? Is there a point? Wrestling with these questions is, if you will, essential. The local church is God’s Plan A for the advancement of his purposes in the world and in our lives. If we want to participate in the fullness of his purposes, we must embrace his chosen vehicle for advancing them.

How the Gospel Changes Us

Media, Sermons, Transformed: How Jesus Changes Lives | by Pastor Craig Sturm

Transformed: How Jesus Changes Lives

We all know from our own lives and our experience of the world around us, that real, lasting change is elusive. “Transformed” is a 4-part series exploring the transforming power of God in our lives. Today, from Ephesians 4:20-24, we will build on last week’s promise of hope for real change, anchored in the the redeeming love of God in Jesus Christ, by looking at a process of gospel change based on Paul’s exhortations to “put off your old self” and “put on the new self”.

The Unsearchable Riches of the Bible

, Media, New Year Essentials 2018, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

New Year Essentials 2018
This morning we’re kicking off a fresh series of standalone sermons that we’re informally calling our ‘new year essentials.’ Today my simple, but profound, goal is to encourage us to read the Bible with an aim to see and savor God’s supreme value, in Jesus. My hope, and that of all the elders, is that we would treasure this book for the treasure it reveals even more deeply this year. The treasures it contains are unsearchable, which makes this book precious beyond value.

Present with Jesus

In Christ: What it means to belong to God, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

In Christ: What it means to belong to God

This morning we are continuing our sermon series, “In Christ”. The primary question this series aims to answer is, “What does it actually mean to be a Christian?” Or, to put it differently, “What does it mean to belong to God?” Today, in Ephesians 2:4-6, we consider how Jesus’ people are present with him and, therefore, given the privilege of personal access to God.
