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.”
Discipleship 1: Witnesses by Pastor Abidan Shah
Last weekend, I introduced the acronym WATER to help us understand what being a disciple should look like. This weekend, we’ll be examining the first of those elements of being a disciple; the message is titled “DISCIPLESHIP 1: WITNESSES.” We’ll be taking a look at Acts and seeing how the disciples were to be witnesses to those around them.
Discipleship: Introduction by Pastor Abidan Shah
Our message this weekend is titled “DISCIPLESHIP 1: WITNESSES.” We will begin looking at Matthew 28 and Jesus’ charge to His disciples to go into all the world and tell people the good news of salvation. They were to be the mouthpieces for the message of redemption.
Drifting Allegiance by Pastor Abidan Shah
This weekend, I’m preaching a message titled “DRIFTING ALLEGIANCE.” After His resurrection, Jesus still had many interactions with His disciples, teaching them and preparing them for when He would depart from them. The encounter we will be looking at is a tender moment between Jesus and Peter following his denial of Christ during the crucifixion. Jesus gently restores Peter’s focus and clarity on the mission God has given him.
Doubtful Faith by Pastor Abidan Shah
This weekend, even though Easter is over, there is more for us to learn from this current series. I’m preaching a message this weekend titled “DOUBTFUL FAITH.” Thomas, one of Jesus’ disciples, was hesitant to believe the reports of His resurrection. He wanted firm proof that he could see and touch. He had to see Jesus and touch His wounds in order to fully believe.
Fearless Love by Pastor Abidan Shah
As you know, this weekend we will be celebrating Easter as a church. What a wonderful time of worship and rejoicing as we remember the resurrection of our Savior. We will be taking a look at the story of Jesus’ resurrection from the perspective of His followers. How did it affect them? How did they respond? For many of them, their actions were fueled by something much deeper than obedience. They were motivated by a love that gave them boldness and purpose. The title of this weekend’s Easter message is “FEARLESS LOVE.”
Training Part Two by Pastor Abidan Shah
This weekend’s message is a continuation of “TRAINING” from last weekend. We are continuing to look at God’s design for raising children. This week, we will be looking at Psalm 50. God is commanding believers to not assume they can speak for Him or understand His nature. He is God and their assumptions of His character are insulting and sinful.
Training by Pastor Abidan Shah
The message this weekend is titled “TRAINING.” The book of Proverbs teaches us that we ought to train children in the way they should go. This weekend, we will take a more in-depth look at what that way looks like and how we can teach our children to follow God’s plan for their lives.
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.
Steadfast by Pastor Abidan Shah
This weekend, our message is titled “STEADFAST.” Paul encouraged the Philippians to stand up under persecution and maintain an eternal perspective on the sufferings of life. He tells them to remain steadfast, but it’s not an individualistic command. Paul tells the Philippians to stand firm together, being unified for the sake of the gospel.
Immortal by Pastor Abidan Shah
This weekend’s message is titled “IMMORTAL.” Paul’s words to the Philippians show that he was fearless in the faith of death. He knew what was waiting for him on the other side: an eternity in the presence of God. Paul was able to maintain an eternal perspective because he understood that this life is not all there is.
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.
Partners by Pastor Abidan Shah
This weekend’s message is titled “PARTNERS.” Paul regarded the Philippians as partners in the gospel; their relationship moved Paul to pray for them, that God would bless them and that they would abound in love. Paul’s love for the Philippians is evident in how he prays for them.
Guaranteed by Pastor Abidan Shah
The title of this message is “GUARANTEED.” Paul wanted the Philippians to understand that God would not start doing something in their lives that He didn’t intend to finish. He is a God who brings things to completion.

Transformed by Pastor Abidan Shah
The title of this message is “TRANSFORMED.” We will examine three very different individuals who encountered Paul and whose lives were completely changed by the power of the gospel. God used Paul’s ministry to meet these people where they were and transform their lives.
Redirected by Pastor Abidan Shah
We are all redirected by God. As we will explore in this weekend's message titled "Redirected," from Acts, door after door was closed to Paul. It would have been easy for him to lose heart. If Paul had another reaction to the closed doors, one of anger and bitterness, and had not waited, it would have been a bad situation.
Fulfilled: Location of Jesus’ Birth by Pastor Abidan Shah
In this message, we will be focusing on the location of Jesus’ birth. In his account of the birth of Jesus, Matthew quotes a prophecy written by Micah pertaining to Bethlehem as the birthplace of the Messiah. This had powerful implications for the people during Micah’s day, those that Matthew was writing to, and for us as well.
