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.”
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.”
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.”
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.”
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”.
Inspiration by Dr. Abidan Shah
Last weekend, we compared the Bible to the Qur’an and looked at how both Islam and Christianity view inspiration and the content of each book. This weekend, we will examine the sacred texts of Hinduism and how they compare to the Bible. The title of this weekend’s message is “INSPIRATION”.
Revelation by Dr. Abidan Shah
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”.
Greater Plan by Dr. Abidan Shah
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.”
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.”
Misled by Dr. Abidan Shah
This weekend, we will turn our attention back to Proverbs 6 with a warning from a father to his son. He cautions him to avoid the dangers that easily ensnare and pull people away from God. Just like the son in this passage, we ought to be wary of the dangers and temptations of this life that so easily pull our focus away from God. The title of this weekend’s message is “MISLED.”
