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.”

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.”

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.

The title of this weekend’s message is “REGENERATION.”

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?

The title of this weekend’s message is “JUSTIFICATION: IMPUTATION.”

Justification: Instruction by Dr. Abidan Shah

This weekend, we will continue in our series as we head toward Easter. We will be taking a look at the law of God and its impact on the life of the believer. This is something that might be difficult for us to understand. Maybe you think of the law of God as being an Old Testament concept and that after Jesus, the Christian life was all about grace. While the grace of God is important, the law of God is not diminished. This weekend’s message is titled “JUSTIFICATION: INSTRUCTION.”
