Ascent by Dr. Abidan Shah

In this weekend’s message, we are looking at humanity. Ultimately, every theory about the development of mankind wants to explain how we got here. What is our origin? What about things like cavemen and Neanderthals? We will address those questions and more in this weekend’s message titled “ASCENT.”

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.”

Flourish by Dr. Abidan Shah

This weekend as we continue through Genesis, we are looking at God’s creation of plant life and vegetation. God created each of the different varieties of plants and made them able to reproduce themselves. We will understand the implications of God’s design and how it impacts our faith. The title of this weekend’s message is “FLOURISH.”

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.”

24 by Dr. Abidan Shah

This weekend, as we continue to look at the account of creation in Genesis 1, we are focusing on the actual days themselves. There are many debates and opinions surround how long these days actually were. Through this message, we will understand not only that these were literal 24-hour days, but also how that impacts our understanding of creation itself. The title of this weekend’s message is “24.”

Beginning by Dr. Abidan Shah

This weekend, we’ll be taking a closer look at the creation account in Genesis 1. In between Genesis 1:1 and 1:3, God creates the spiritual realm and angelic beings. Scripture tells us that these angels were so amazed at creation that they began praising and glorifying God; a response we all should have! The title of this weekend’s message is “BEGINNING.”

Timeless by Dr. Abidan Shah

This weekend, we are looking at the first verse of the Bible. So many of us know Genesis 1:1 by heart, but have you ever considered what came before Genesis 1:1? Because God is outside of time, He has always been and always will be. This is difficult for our human minds to comprehend, but we will by looking at God’s nature this weekend, specifically his timelessness. How does that impact what we believe? The title of this weekend’s message is “TIMELESS”.

Genesis by Dr. Abidan Shah

This weekend, we are turning our attention to the beginning of creation. People can offer many different theories and ideas, but how does science’s account of the beginning of creation line up with what God says in His Word? The book of Genesis offers us a very detailed account of how God made the world around us. In understanding more about creation, we understand more about our Creator and His plan for us. The title of this weekend’s message is “GENESIS”.

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”.

Canon by Dr. Abidan Shah

This weekend, we are examining the canon of Scripture and looking at how the Bible compares to the writings of Buddhism. Buddhists ascribe to many different canons, but there is one biblical canon that believers uphold. Why does this matter? How did the canon come to be accepted? The title of this weekend’s message is “CANON”.

Contend by Dr. Abidan Shah

This weekend, we are taking a look at the inspiration for our series from 1 Peter. It was important in Peter’s day that believers be able to defend their faith against opposition and persecution. As the world around us has shifted, we must also be able to articulate and defend our faith. The title of this weekend’s message is “CONTEND”.

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.”

The Servant by Dr. Abidan Shah

This weekend, we are continuing our study of Isaiah and his use of the term “servant.” In these verses, God is describing His Servant and how he will justify many people ultimately by bearing their iniquities. This shows the perfect plan of salvation that has been on God’s heart since the beginning of time. The title of this weekend’s message is “THE SERVANT.”

Vicarious by Dr. Abidan Shah

This weekend, we are continuing our study of Isaiah 53. Isaiah writes about someone suffering in our place. The suffering that was meant for us was laid upon another and we were healed as a result. This idea is one that is directly tied to the very core doctrines of Christianity and our understanding of the cross. The title of this weekend’s message is “VICARIOUS.”

Assignment by Dr. Abidan Shah

This weekend, we are taking a look at Peter’s call to submit to various forms of authority. Submission is a word that can mean many different things to people. However, for the believer, it is a means of honoring God and obeying His calling on our lives. The title of this weekend’s message is “ASSIGNMENT”.

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.”
