Domain by Abidan Shah, PhD

If you have been following this series, you know that we have been in the book of Genesis for quite some time. There is simply so much to answer from the text and so many questions people have related to God, creation, and the first chapter of human history. This weekend, we will examine an age-old incident from the history of the world and determine what this passage means for us and our understanding of Scripture. This weekend’s message is titled “DOMAIN.”

Sanctification by Dr. Abidan Shah

This weekend, we are taking a look at the ongoing process after the moment a person gets saved. The Christian life is about God molding us and making us more like Christ.  Much like metals are refined and made purer, the life of the believer is a process of God developing Christian character within us. The title of this weekend’s message is “SANCTIFICATION.”

Regeneration by Dr. Abidan Shah

This weekend, we are turning a corner in our series. As we have learned, salvation is both a moment and process in the life of every believer. It involves a person going from being spiritually dead to being alive in Christ. But what does that mean? And how does it change the way we celebrate Easter? The title of this weekend’s message is “REGENERATION.”

Justification: Imputation

This weekend, we will be examining the process of salvation. We use the language of being saved or asking Jesus into your heart a lot, but what exactly is happening? As we will learn from this message, the process of justification involves Christ taking away our sins and giving us His righteousness so that we may be counted as blameless before God. The title of this weekend’s message is “JUSTIFICATION: IMPUTATION.”

Integrity by Dr. Abidan Shah

INTEGRITY by Dr. Shah, Clearview Church, Henderson, NC Introduction:  This weekend being President’s Day weekend, we were discussing what would be a message we all need to hear. Somebody suggested that it should be on “Integrity in Leadership.” How many of you would agree that we need some integrity in our nation’s leadership? How many... 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.”

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.”

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.”

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.”

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.”

The Anatomy of Salvation by Dr. Abidan Shah

This weekend, we will take a look at something that is regarded by many as a mystery: salvation. We talk about it a lot, sing about it, and even pray for it. But do we understand what is actually happening in the process of salvation? What does it truly mean for a person to “be saved”? The title of this weekend’s message is “THE ANATOMY OF SALVATION”.

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.”

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.” 

The Restoration | Dr. Abidan Shah

This weekend, we will examine one of the lowest points of Peter’s life and how Jesus responded to bring him back. After denying Jesus, Peter was disheveled, his boldness gone. Then Jesus brings him out of despair and restores his focus on the mission. The title of this weekend’s message is “THE RESTORATION.”

Essential by Dr. Abidan Shah

This weekend, we will begin a brand new series in the book of Ephesians. This series will not only show us the importance of the church in our own lives, but how it shapes and molds our family relationships as well. The title of this new series is “ESSENTIAL.” 

Built by Pastor Abidan Shah

This weekend, we are examining the parable of the wise and foolish builders. Jesus compared his listeners to builders who constructed houses, one upon a rock and the other on sandy ground. He gave a vivid picture of what happens to individuals who hear the Word but do not obey it. The title of this weekend’s message is “BUILT.”
