This weekend, we are examining a very curious account in Scripture: Enoch. The Bible doesn’t give very many details about his life other than that he walked with God and then was no more. However, there is much we can learn from Enoch’s brief account and apply to our own lives! The title of this weekend’s message is “COMPANY.”
This weekend, we are revisiting the issue of the evidence we have for our faith and the truth of the Bible. We don’t have to operate on blind faith or be worried about scientific discoveries disproving the Bible. We can trust that God’s Word is true and that we have evidence to back it up.
This weekend, we will take a look at a very controversial subject from Scripture: predestination. This doctrine has been misunderstood and misrepresented for many years. What does this word mean in the context of Scripture? How does this impact our understanding of salvation? It is crucial that we understand this doctrine and can accurately explain the process of salvation to others. This weekend’s message is titled “CHOSEN.”

PROCLAIM by Dr. Shah, Clearview Church, Henderson, NC Introduction: Growing up, we did not have all the Christmas shopping and gift giving as we do in America.

This weekend, we will be looking at the beginnings of the world itself. Having examined the first day, we will turn to how the waters were separated and what that means.

This weekend’s message is titled “GROUNDWORK.”
If you remember from last weekend, we are going to spend several weeks looking at the Bible and how we should handle God’s Word. This weekend, we are comparing the Bible to the holy books and sacred texts of other religions. Is the Bible different or is it just another religious text like any other? What puts the Bible in a class of its own? The title of this weekend’s message is “REVELATION”.
This weekend, we will begin a series of messages that examine Peter’s encouragement to his readers, asking them to be of one mind. Unity is especially important when living in exile. As believers, we must function in unity in order to be effective, but to do that, you and I must pursue the mind of Christ. The title of this weekend’s message is “ONE MIND.”
This weekend, we will dive into Peter’s examination of the book of Isaiah. Isaiah 53 is only mentioned a handful of times in the New Testament, but Peter’s use of the passage is the one of the most significant. We will take a look at Jesus’ death on the cross and its effect on our lives. The title of this series is “ATONEMENT.”
This weekend, we are continuing our series through 1 Peter and moving further into chapter two. Peter is reminding his readers that God has not abandoned them to the darkness, but instead has called them into His presence. As believers, we cannot continue to pursue the darkness of the world after God has rescued us and brought us into the light of His presence. The title of this weekend’s message is “MARVELOUS LIGHT.”

This weekend, we will begin chapter 2 of 1 Peter.

The title of this weekend’s message is “NEW BEGINNING”.
This weekend, as we continue our study of 1 Peter 1, we will see that Peter draws a distinction between the behavior of his audience before their conversion and their behavior after coming to Christ. Believers ought to act differently than the world around them. The title of this weekend’s message is “RIGHTEOUS CONDUCT.”
This weekend, we will take a look at how Jesus’ birth was perceived by the religious leaders of His day.

The title of this weekend’s message is “GREATER THAN RELIGION.”
This weekend, we will focus on the impacts of Jesus’ birth on the regional ruler, King Herod. Many of us are familiar with his name, but we will see how exactly his life and his position was impacted by the birth of the Messiah. The title of this weekend’s message is “GREATER THAN RULERS.”
This weekend, we are beginning a brand new series focused on Christmas, titled “GREATER.” Through this series, we will focus on the society and political structure during the time of Jesus’ birth.

The title of this weekend’s message is “GREATER THAN ROME.”
This weekend, we are continuing through the first chapter of 1 Peter. Peter is reminding the Jewish people that their lives should not be built around things of this world that will fade away or fail. Rather it should be established upon the eternal truth of God’s Word and their identity as believers. The title of this weekend’s message is “GREATER PLAN.”
This weekend, we are continuing our study of the life of Peter. There was an incident where Paul had to correct Peter. Instead of bristling up, Peter not only accepted that correction, but goes on to praise Paul. It is difficult to accept admonition from others, but God often uses that as a way to course correct our behavior or our understanding. The title of this weekend’s message is “THE ADMONITION.”
