Sacred by Dr. Abidan Shah

This weekend, we are continuing our study of the canon of Scripture. There are many religions that either add to the canon of books that the church has traditionally considered inspired or mishandle the ones we do consider to be Scripture. How does understanding the canon of Scripture help us to better see which religions are inaccurate, even if they appear close in their beliefs? The title of this weekend’s message is “SACRED”.

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”.

Authority by Dr. Abidan Shah

This weekend, we are taking a look at the Bible itself. Throughout the years, there has been much debate as to the canon of Scripture. How were the books included in our Bible chosen and how should we view those that were not included? God’s Word is perfect, but we must understand how it was originally compiled in order to defend it. The title of this weekend’s message is “AUTHORITY.”

Rescued by Dr. Abidan Shah

In this weekend’s message, we will actually turn our attention to Psalm 34 and examine David’s words after his poor choices. They are a reminder to all generations that God rescues His people from trouble, even if that trouble is caused by our own hands. The title of this weekend’s message is “RESCUED”.

Onward by Dr. Abidan Shah

Joshua and Caleb are known for showing courage and steadfast faith in the face of difficult odds. They encountered opposition, both from the native inhabitants on the Promised Land as well as from their own people! Yet these men remained determined to push forward. The title of this weekend’s message is “ONWARD.”

Prayer: Doctrine by Dr. Abidan Shah

This weekend, we will explore the doctrine of prayer from Scripture. So many times in the Bible, God outlines for us the nature of prayer and the importance of talking with our Heavenly Father. The title of this weekend’s message is “PRAYER: DOCTRINE.”

Press On by Dr. Abidan Shah

This weekend, we are continuing through Paul’s letter to the Philippians. Paul is holding himself up as an example of what it means to continue moving forward and growing in the Christian life. He reminds his readers that developing a Christlike mindset is a journey. God continues to refine us as we pursue His will. The title of this weekend’s message is “PRESS ON.”

Walking in the Steps by Dr. Abidan Shah

It is always so amazing to walk around these different locations, knowing that you are standing on sites mentioned in Scripture! It’s like watching the stories of the Bible come to life before your very eyes! This weekend, we will hear from some of the team members that just returned. They will share about what this trip meant to them, how it changed their perspective of the Bible, and how it helped them to grow in the faith. The title of the message this weekend is “WALKING IN THE STEPS.”

Mindset by Pastor Abidan Shah

This weekend, we will be looking further into Paul’s letter to the Philippians. He encourages them to change their mindset to that of Christ. In order to change a mindset, though, we must first understand what the mind is. This message will help us gain a foundational understanding of exactly what we mean by the “mind” and how it affects our daily lives. The title of this weekend’s message is “”MINDSET.”

Worship this Weekend at Clearview Church!

This weekend, as Pastor Shah is traveling, we will hear from several men who are going to share what God has laid on their hearts. It is such a blessing to be part of a church that is filled with godly leaders and teachers!  These messages will encourage and challenge us to live out our faith and to make Christ visible in our daily lives.

Thankful for Our Church Family by Pastor Abidan Shah

This weekend, we are talking about our church and the family of believers that God has blessed us with here at Clearview. This is such a special place and I am so thankful for each person here, as I know many of you are as well. One way that we can show our gratefulness for our church family is by volunteering to serve in some capacity. There are so many ways to serve and to partner with our church family as we reach the lost and make Christ visible. 

Anointed by Pastor Abidan Shah

This weekend, we turn to Jesus Himself as the Christ, the One promised from the beginning. Every page of the Bible, every story it contains points to Jesus as the One who will defeat sin and the grave. If we are going to rightly understand Scripture, we must interpret it through the lens of the cross. The title of this week’s message is “ANOINTED.”

Discipleship: Implanted by Pastor Abidan Shah

This weekend, we turn our attention to the importance of the Word of God being implanted in our hearts. When we memorize Scripture, we hide God’s Word in our hearts to keep us focused on Him when life tries to steal our attention. The implanted Word within us responds to the external Word when we sit under biblical teaching and preaching. Likewise, the external Word stirs the implanted Word within us and calls us to action. This weekend’s message is titled “DISCIPLESHIP: IMPLANTED.”

Discipleship: Rooted by Pastor Abidan Shah

This weekend, we are taking a look at Paul’s words to Timothy regarding the importance of studying the Bible. He encourages Timothy to remind others to regularly study the Scriptures without falling into pointless debates that only create division. Proper study of the Word ensures that men and women have a firm foundation of truth. The message this weekend is titled “DISCIPLESHIP: ROOTED.”

Discipleship 4: Established in the Word by Pastor Abidan Shah

This messages marks the fourth installment in our series. Throughout His earthly ministry, Jesus spent time teaching His disciples and those around Him the importance of the Old Testament and the prophecies that had been fulfilled. Disciples should be established on the truth of the Bible. The title of the message this weekend is “DISCIPLESHIP 4: ESTABLISHED IN THE WORD.”

Discipleship 3: Together by Pastor Abidan Shah

This weekend, we come to the third letter of the acronym WATER, which stands for “Together.” In the book of Acts, the believers were united by a common purpose and desire to see the gospel spread to the nations. Their unity made them stand out from those around them and drew people to the truth of who Jesus is and what He accomplished. The title of this week’s message is “DISCIPLESHIP 3: TOGETHER.”

Discipleship 2: Accountable by Pastor Abidan Shah

This weekend, we come to the second letter of the acronym WATER, which stands for “Accountable.” Throughout Scripture, we find disciples of God being grouped into pairs and going out to spread the gospel, establish churches, or visit those in need. Jesus encouraged His followers to rely on a close inner circle to keep themselves focused on pursuing God and a pure life. The title of this week’s message is “DISCIPLESHIP 2: ACCOUNTABLE.”

Defining Gospel by Pastor Abidan Shah

Our series takes a different turn this week. The message is titled “DEFINING GOSPEL.” We have been examining Paul’s relationship with the Philippian believers. This week, we are taking a look at Paul’s usage of the word “gospel.” If Paul looks at everything through the lens of the gospel, then we must understand what he means by the term if we are to rightly interpret the rest of the book.

Perspective by Pastor Abidan Shah

This weekend’s message is titled “PERSPECTIVE.” Paul told the Philippians that everything that happened to him, both good and bad, served to spread the gospel. He even said that God used those who were preaching out of a spirit of competition with Paul to get the message of salvation to the nations.
