What's the Relationship Between the Church and Israel?

27790765

We've recently embarked on the journey of climbing the Mount Everest of the New Testament, Romans 911. While there are difficult concepts to digest such as the doctrine of election, we need to keep in mind that this section is primarily concerned with the salvation of Israel and God's faithfulness to his promises. Paul is grieved over their rejection of the Gospel but find...

How to Listen to a Sermon

listem-to-members

Have you ever considered the question, "How do I listen to a sermon?" or more specifically, "How do I come ready to hear a word from God as the Bible is preached?" Many of us haven't considered that question, because after all how hard is it to sit and listen. But in reality, it is difficult to listen. Most of us have not trained our minds to listen to a 45 min monologue. ...

What we see in Scripture is that humans do what they want to do, but in so doing they...

Walking in Newness of Life through Bible Reading Plans and Scripture Memorization

Happy New Year! With this season of the year comes for many of us a renewed sense of purpose to set goals, make resolutions, and make 2018 "the best year ever". Many of these goals are well and good. I want to exercise more, eat better, read more books, finish projects at home among other goals. But, in light of Pastor Chase's sermon Sunday and the fact that we have bee...
