Man of Promise by Abidan Shah, PhD

Abraham and Sarah are often depicted as this no-name family moving from Ur to God’s Promised Land. However, they were much more than just wanderers. Abraham, Sarah, and others around them knew something was going on, that God’s plan was in motion. They could see God blessing them and protecting them as they followed His plan in obedience and faith, ultimately leading to the birth of Jesus. The title of this weekend’s message is “MAN OF PROMISE.”

Sheepfold by Abidan Shah, PhD

This weekend, we are continuing to examine the pictures for evangelism that Jesus gives his listeners. Jesus refers to himself as a shepherd and extends that metaphor to evangelism by talking about bringing sheep into the fold. What are we doing to reach the lost and bring them to our shepherd, Jesus Christ? The title of this weekend’s message is “SHEEPFOLD.”

Multitude by Abidan Shah, PhD

In this very special message this weekend, we will examine the culture of Clearview itself. This is more than just a service that we attend or a building where ministries meet. Clearview is a family that God brought into our lives. We all have a responsibility in the ministry and impact of our church in reaching people and creating a community here. The title of this weekend’s message is “MULTITUDE.”

Legends by Abidan Shah, PhD

This weekend, as we continue to learn about Noah and the flood, we will compare the biblical account to ancient myths and mythologies from cultures around the world. The presence of other flood narratives might seem strange, but when we look closer we will find proof of the authority of God’s Word in these “LEGENDS”.

Justification: Indispensable by Dr. Abidan Shah

In the weeks leading up to Easter, we will begin new series focused on the cross and what Jesus has accomplished for us. Most believers have a very incomplete understanding of the cross. The concepts of salvation, justification, and atonement, however, are central to our faith. We will gain a better understanding of Christ’s work on the cross through this series titled “JUSTIFICATION.”

Living Hope by Dr. Abidan Shah

This weekend, we are moving forward through the book of 1 Peter. Peter is writing to an audience that was exiled and displaced. Hope would have been difficult to come by. And yet, he reminds them that their source of hope is God and what He has done for them and for all of us. The title of this weekend’s message is “LIVING HOPE.”

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.” 

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: Practice by Dr. Abidan Shah

This weekend, we will be in the second part of our series on prayer. Once we understand the doctrine of prayer, it will impact the way we pray. Our practice of prayer shows others what we believe about God and His ability to work in our lives. The title of this weekend’s message is “PRAYER: PRACTICE.”

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.”

HOSANNA by Dr. Abidan Paul Shah

This is a series leading to the Good Friday and Easter Season. Here’s the message in this series: God wants to save us. In fact, he delights in saving us. Being saved by God is not a sign of weakness. It is our prerogative as his children.

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.”

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.”

Cost by Pastor Abidan Shah

This weekend, we will be looking at Jesus’ words to His disciples. He describes the cost of living a life of obedience to God and taking up their crosses to follow after Him. This parable caused the disciples to examine their hearts and determine if they were truly willing to forsake all others and follow Jesus. The title of this weekend’s message is “COST.”

Shrewd by Pastor Abidan Shah

This weekend, we will be taking a look at the parable of the unjust steward. This is the most difficult parable to interpret. However, once we unravel the layers, the truth that Jesus is communicating to His disciples is just as powerful and impactful for us today. Jesus warns his disciples to be wise and shrewd in their dealings with others. Just because we are believers doesn’t mean we operate with blind trust and naiveté. The title of this week’s message is “SHREWD.”

Reward by Pastor Abidan Shah

This weekend, we turn our attention to the parable of the parable of the workers in the vineyard. The owner of the vineyard hired the workers at different times, but still gave each a generous reward for their work. It wasn’t based on the hours they labored, but rather on the grace of the owner. The title of this weekend’s message is “REWARD.”

Obedient by Pastor Abidan Shah

This weekend, we will be taking a look at the Parable of Two Sons. Jesus told this parable in response to an interaction with the religious leaders of the temple who had a problem with His authority. Through the parable, Jesus illustrates the importance of repenting and following God’s plan. The title of this weekend’s message is “OBEDIENT.”

Furnace by Pastor Abidan Shah

This weekend, we will turn our attention to the parable of the wheat and tares. Jesus told this parable immediately following the parable of the sower, using similar language to communicate powerful truths to His audience. With this parable, Jesus challenged His listeners to think critically about their eternal destinations and to face the reality of hell. The title of this weekend’s message is “FURNACE.”

Fruitful by Pastor Abidan Shah

This weekend, we will be looking at the parable of the sower, although the parable is really about the different types of soil. Each different type received the same seed, but only the good soil produced a fruitful harvest. Jesus used this parable to make his listeners take a critical look at their spiritual lives to see if they were bearing fruit. The title of this weekend’s message is “FRUITFUL.”

Glory by Pastor Abidan Shah

This weekend, we come to the end of Philippians 2:5-11, where Paul states that Jesus being exalted bring glory to God the Father. That’s a word we use a lot, but often don’t understand exactly what it means. The title of our message this weekend is “GLORY.”
