Arise and Shine!

Here are Sunday Jan. 05, 2020 Sermon notes.

Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved,
A workman who does not need to be ashamed
and who correctly handles the word of truth.
2 Timothy 2:15

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching,
Rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness,
So that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped
For every good work.
2 Timothy 3:16-17

To grow in our understanding of God, our relationship with Christ and each other, our identity in Christ and our love for God, the bible is foundational towards that end. We desire to mature in all aspects of our relationship with God. On most Sunday mornings we dedicate 25- 30 minutes to learn from God’s Word as it is shared through Spirit filled expository preaching. Spirit filled Expository preaching is a philosophy, not a method, where

          The proclamation of biblical truth is derived from the illuminating guidance of the Holy Spirit by means of a verse-by-verse exposition of the Spirit-inspired text, with a view to applying the text by means of the convicting power of the Holy Spirit, first to the preacher’s own heart, and then to the hearts of those who hear, culminating in an authentic and powerful witness to the living Word, Jesus Christ, and obedient, Spirit-filled living. (From Spirit-Led Preaching by Dr. Greg Heisler. Used by      permission.)

Along with our commitment to expository preaching, we believe there is great value in preaching through books of the Bible (both Old and New) to gain a better understanding of God’s redemptive story and how we are to faithfully follow Him. We believe all of Scripture is inspired by God and needed for us to be thoroughly equipped for the good works He has planned for us to do. To enrich our understanding of each week’s biblical passage, we provide Scripture Studies that contain notes from various study Bibles and commentaries. We also provide a variety of discussion questions that focus on the passage as well. These resources can be found for free on our Sermons page at the bottom of the sermon window under the Extras tab.
