Kingdom by Abidan Shah, PhD

In this weekend’s message, we will look at Abraham and Sarah specifically. God’s hand was on them as they began their journey out of Ur. However, Abraham made a critical mistake in taking his wife right into the heart of the kingdom of the Serpent: Egypt. What did this mean for Abraham, Sarah, and God’s plan as a whole? The title of this weekend’s message is “KINGDOM.”

Tyranny: Part 2 by Abidan Shah, PhD

This weekend, we will continue our study of Babel and how it shaped our history. Different languages and people groups developed because of the people’s rebellion against God. It wasn’t just about the prideful building of a tower. It was important that the people scatter across the earth, and, in rebellion, they refused. What was important about that command to scatter and how does it impact us today? The title of this weekend’s message is “TYRANNY: PART 2.”

Lampstand by Abidan Shah, PhD

This weekend marks the conclusion of this series on evangelism. We are called by God to be the light of the world. Light is integral in eliminating darkness and drawing attention to something. We are able to shine a light, but not because of anything within ourselves. The title of this weekend’s message is “LAMPSTAND.”

Reliable: Why the Original Text is Important by Abidan Shah, PhD

This weekend, as we approach the conference, we will begin a short series examining the Bible itself. There are those that say the original text of Scripture is lost to us. Through translation over the years, we have moved away from the original Greek text. Not only is this false, but it is a harmful understanding of God’s Word. The title of this weekend’s message is “RELIABLE: PART 1.”

Connection: Part 2 – Abidan Shah, PhD

This weekend, we come to part two of our series on “CONNECTION.” It is our responsibility to be discerning when it comes to the opinions and beliefs of those around us. It can be easy to be swept up into popular thinking, but we must remember that this church family is a blessing and not something to be taken for granted.

Parenting IQ: Influential by Abidan Shah, PhD

This weekend, we will be focusing on the childhood years. Throughout Scripture, the importance of teaching and training children is emphasized. How we lead the children in our lives can help set them up for success and protect them from the influence of the world. This weekend’s message is titled “PARENTING IQ: INFLUENTIAL.”

Parenting IQ: Introduction by Dr. Abidan Shah

This weekend, we will lay a foundation for our understanding of brain development as a whole. Much more than just parenting, we as believers should work toward a biblical understanding of how our minds grow and mature. This will help us be better parents, mentors, counselors, and followers of God!

Chosen by Dr. Abidan Shah

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.”

Justification: Indispensable by Dr. Abidan Shah

In the weeks leading up to Easter, we will begin new series focused on the cross and what Jesus has accomplished for us. Most believers have a very incomplete understanding of the cross. The concepts of salvation, justification, and atonement, however, are central to our faith. We will gain a better understanding of Christ’s work on the cross through this series titled “JUSTIFICATION.”

All-Sufficient by Dr. Abidan Shah

ALL-SUFFICIENT by Dr. Shah, Clearview Church, Henderson, NC Introduction: Sometime back in our series titled “Contend,” we played a portion of the sound recording of the crew of Apollo 8 reading from Genesis 1 on Christmas Eve, 1968. The following year, July 20th, 1969, when Apollo 11 landed on the moon and Neil Armstrong stepped... Continue Reading →

First Gospel: The Cure by Dr. Abidan Shah

This weekend, we are taking a look at the events that have unfolded after the Fall. We know that God promised a Savior in Genesis and that He would crush the head of the Enemy. How did Christ’s birth fulfill all of this? How did the cross destroy the work of the Enemy? This weekend’s message is titled “THE CURE.”

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.”

Re-Created by Dr. Abidan Shah

This weekend, we are diving deeper into God’s creation of humanity. God made us male and female. The world around us is trying to blur the lines of being male and female, pushing the narrative of gender dysphoria and identity. As we learned last week, we must rely on the truth of God’s Word to guide our thinking in this discussion and to recapture God’s original design. The title of this weekend’s message is “RE-CREATED.”

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.”

Origin by Dr. Abidan Shah

This week, we are continuing through the book of Genesis and examining the account of creation. We have come to the fifth day, the first day that animals are created. From this moment, the world was teeming with life, each one designed uniquely by a loving Creator. The title of this weekend’s message is “ORIGIN.”

Landscape by Dr. Abidan Shah

This weekend, we are looking at the third day of creation. God is bringing form and structure to what was previously empty and formless. God designed land and sea in such a way that they would be perfectly suited to sustain the life that would soon fill them. This should amaze and inspire us to be obedient to God and to serve in church. With the Ministry Drive this weekend as well, this is a perfect reminder for us as to why serving in church is so important. The title of this weekend’s message is “LANDSCAPE.”

Groundwork by Dr. Abidan Shah

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. The book of Genesis contains in its first few lines the framework for the entire world. As we approach the second day of creation, we will see how God created the space He would later fill with life. This weekend’s message is titled “GROUNDWORK.”

Discover by Dr. Abidan Shah

This weekend, we are examining the relationship between science and Christianity. Many people believe that the two are often opposed to one another. Others worry that if you pursue scientific knowledge and discovery, it will shake the foundations of your faith. What we will learn from this weekend, though, is that science actually supports Christianity and gives evidence for what we believe. The title of this weekend’s message is “DISCOVER”.
