God’s Story and the Nations

, Media, New Year Essentials 2021, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett


We conclude a set of annual sermons we refer to as our new year essentials. These sermons address subjects to which we must repeatedly return for the glory of God and the transformation of 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, we will consider God’s unfolding story among the nations—and our role in it.

Seeing God Clearly

Media, Other Sermons | by Pastor Craig Sturm

Other Sermons
We unpack one of the most simple, yet profound statements in all of the Bible—Jesus’ call to purity of heart and the subsequent promise of seeing God in Matthew 5:8. What does it mean to “see God”? What does it mean to be “pure in heart”? How does that impact how we understand our life, the genuineness of our faith, and the single-mindedness of our hearts? These are worthy questions to ponder as we enter into a new year!

Mission-Driven and Disciple-Making

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 Parable of the Vineyard Workers

Media, Parables of Jesus: Windows into Reality, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

Parables of Jesus: Windows into Reality

This morning we are continuing our series, The Parables of Jesus: Windows into Reality, in which we are exploring ten of Jesus’ most famous parables. Today, we reach the Parable of the Vineyard Workers, found in Mt. 20:1-16. This parable highlights God’s extravagant grace and the human heart’s propensity to envious grumbling. It shocks us with God’s undeserved favor, warns us against heartblinding envy, and sends us into the city with good news at the eleventh hour.

The Parable of the Unforgiving Servant

Media, Parables of Jesus: Windows into Reality, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

Parables of Jesus: Windows into Reality

Today, we reach the Parable of the Unforgiving Servant, found in Matthew 18:21-35. This parable contains Jesus’ major treatment on forgiveness. Living in a broken world, as a broken person, surrounded by broken people will provide ample opportunity to forgive and be forgiven. But, why should we forgive?

The Parable of the Talents

Parables of Jesus: Windows into Reality

This morning we are entering our second week in a new series, The Parables of Jesus: Windows into Reality, in which we are exploring ten of Jesus’ most famous parables. Today, we reach the Parable of the Talents, found in Matthew 25:14-30. This parable is used to highlight the value of stewardship—which is good and right—but there’s much more to it than that. This parable challenges the very foundations of how we see reality and what we do with our lives.

The Hidden Treasure and a Priceless Pearl

Media, Parables of Jesus: Windows into Reality, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

Parables of Jesus: Windows into Reality

This morning we are beginning a new series, The Parables of Jesus: Windows into Reality, over the course of which we will explore ten of Jesus’ most famous parables. Today, we begin in Matthew 13:44-46 with the parable of the hidden treasure and, its pair, the pearl of great price. Here Jesus illustrates the unrivaled worth of God’s Kingdom and invites us to consider: What is my greatest treasure? And, more importantly, am I living for the greatest treasure?

From Our Neighborhoods to the Nations

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

New Year Essentials 2018
What is the mission of Jesus’ church? Why does it exist? In a word, what is the church for? What is our role in that? Those are the kinds of questions we’ll explore today in light of Matthew 28:16-20. What we’ll discover is that, yes, Jesus’ church has a massive, far-reaching purpose. His church is central to God’s unfolding story of redemption, across continents and millennia, among the neighborhoods of Seattle and the nations of the world, and every follower of Jesus is called to be a part of it.

Building Your Life on the Rock

Media, Sermon on the Mount, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

Sermon on the Mount

Today we are wrapping-up our study through the Sermon on the Mount, found in Matthew 5-7. These important words of Jesus reveal the counter-cultural nature and character of the kingdom of God. They are meant to help us live as citizens of God’s kingdom now, under his gracious rule, even while we yet remain in the kingdom of the world. In Matt. 7:24-29, Jesus ends his sermon with a sober call to consider the foundations of our lives. What are we building our lives on?

The Narrow and Wide Gates

Media, Sermon on the Mount, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

Sermon on the Mount

This week in Matthew 7:13-23, we continue our series through Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount. These important words of Jesus reveal the counter-cultural nature and character of the kingdom of God. They are meant to help us live as citizens of God’s kingdom now, under his gracious rule, even while we yet remain in the kingdom of the world. Today, Jesus nears the end of his sermon and gets serious because the stakes couldn’t be any higher.
