First Gospel: The Damage

This weekend, we are moving forward in our study of Genesis and what went wrong. The consequences of Adam and Eve’s disobedience have been felt for thousands of years. It is into this damaged world that God sent Jesus to fix what had been broken. The title of this weekend’s message is “FIRST GOSPEL: THE DAMAGE.”

Re-Created: Part 2 by Dr. Abidan Shah

This weekend, we are continuing our study of being created male and female. Gender dysphoria, gender identity, and transgenderism are big topics of debate in society. The push is to regard truth as subjective and relative to each individual. But it matters that God has designed us as male and female. The title of this weekend’s message is “RE-CREATED PART 2.”

Distinct by Dr. Abidan Shah

This weekend, we are continuing our study of creation. On the sixth day, God created the rest of the animal kingdom, from the largest elephant to the smallest insect. Although there are some similarities across creation, God designed every creature uniquely and specifically to fulfill its own function. It reminds us that his plan for the world is perfect. The title of this weekend’s message is “DISTINCT.”

Brightness by Dr. Abidan Shah

This weekend, we are looking at the creation of the sun on the fourth day in Genesis 1. The sun is often something we take for granted, but life on earth wouldn’t exist without it. God set it exactly the right distance from earth and made it exactly the right temperature to sustain life for His creation. The title of this weekend’s message is “BRIGHTNESS.”

Misstep by Dr. Abidan Shah

In our message this weekend, Peter begins to quote Psalm 34, relating David’s words to his listeners. In order to understand Peter’s use of Psalm 34, we must first understand the context of David’s life as he was writing. He made a series of poor decisions that left him to deal with the consequences. The title of this weekend’s message is “MISSTEP”.

Plunder by Dr. Abidan Shah

This weekend, we conclude Isaiah 53 and focus on the reward for Jesus’ obedience. Isaiah writes about Jesus’ seeing generations beyond Himself, pointing forward to the resurrection and His victory over death and the grave. We were stolen out of God’s hand, but Christ came to rob the grave and steal us back. The title of today’s message is “PLUNDER.”

Astray by Dr. Abidan Shah

This weekend, we are examining our relationship with Christ and how we have wandered away from what we know to be true. Like sheep, we have turned away, but our Good Shepherd has taken our sins upon Himself. The title of this weekend’s message is “ASTRAY.”

Marvelous Light by Dr. Abidan Shah

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.”

Living Stone by Dr. Abidan Shah

This weekend, we are moving forward in chapter two of 1 Peter. Peter tells his readers that Jesus Christ is the cornerstone, the One upon whom our faith is established. Those who believe in Him will not be put to shame, no matter what others may think. The title of this weekend’s message is “LIVING STONE.”

New Beginning by Dr. Abidan Shah

This weekend, we will begin chapter 2 of 1 Peter. Having talked about the importance of love as a response to being born again, Peter goes on to instruct his readers that they must continue to grow in their understanding of the Word, laying aside earthly, sinful behaviors. The title of this weekend’s message is “NEW BEGINNING”.

Fervent Love by Dr. Abidan Shah

This weekend, we come to the end of chapter 1. Peter is encouraging his readers to love one another out of obedience to God’s Word. We can show love because we have first been loved by God and restored. In showing love to others, we are displaying the power of the gospel. The title of this weekend’s message is “FERVENT LOVE.”

Faithfulness by Dr. Abidan Shah

This weekend, we will step back and take a look at the faithfulness of God toward His people. Throughout Scripture, God gave His people constant reminders of His faithfulness. He has done the same for us this year and this message will help us remember that He will never let us down. The title of this weekend’s message is “FAITHFULNESS.”

Greater than Religion by Dr. Abidan Shah

This weekend, we will take a look at how Jesus’ birth was perceived by the religious leaders of His day. They were used to being in power and navigating the political climate of that day for their benefit. However, the coming of Jesus radically changed their way of life. The title of this weekend’s message is “GREATER THAN RELIGION.”

Greater than Rulers by Dr. Abidan Shah

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.”

Greater Than Rome

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. Even though times change, people, situations, and politics remain the same. In this first message, we will take a look at the Roman Empire and how it was affected by Jesus’ birth. The title of this weekend’s message is “GREATER THAN ROME.”

Genuine Faith by Dr. Abidan Shah

This weekend, we are moving forward through the book of 1 Peter. Peter is reminding his audience of the purpose of trials in this life. The Jewish people were no stranger to trials, but Peter wanted them to remember that ultimately, difficult situations help strengthen our faith by the grace of God. The title of this weekend’s message is “GENUINE FAITH.”

Identity by Dr. Abidan Shah

This weekend, we begin going through Peter’s letter to Jewish believers scattered throughout the region. They were discouraged and felt like they no longer had an identity as a people group. Peter reminds them, not of their previous identity, but of their new identity as Christians. The title of this weekend’s message is “IDENTITY.”

The Admonition by Dr. Abidan Shah

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.” 

Glorious by Dr. Abidan Shah

This weekend, we are continuing our series “ESSENTIAL” through the book of Ephesians. The relationship between Christ and the church affects every area of our lives, including our understanding of marriage. The relationship between a husband and wife should be modeled after the relationship between Christ and the church. The title of this weekend’s message is “GLORIOUS.”
