We Are the Church

Posted: 28 Oct, 2018 | Author: Dove Cranson

The church is a beautiful thing, precious to God, and a source of good to the world. The Biblical word church does not describe a building where people meet, or an event, but a group of people. We are the church. Being the church has many wonderful dynamics and is a rich experience I would […]

Becoming Uncommon

Becoming Uncommon

Posted: 17 Sep, 2017 | Author: Steve Nelson

Common people become uncommon standing on the promises of God. (Dawson Trotman) Do you have the sense that you were created for uncommon purposes? Or perhaps that you have some unfulfilled potential? In reality, God has designed you with certain purposes in mind (Ephesians 2:10). What are these things? What are we supposed to be […]

A Family United

Posted: 27 Aug, 2017 | Author: Dove Cranson

Dove shares about how he has felt a tendency in his own life to isolate himself or become isolated from others. Yet, the hope of Christ is that his family (his church) will relentlessly fight these tendencies and pursue unity. We each have a role in building up the family of God and staying united […]

Animation 5 – Sinful Religionists – Life in Life Received

Posted: 21 May, 2017 | Author: Steve Nelson

We think of the account of the woman caught in the act of adultery as a beautiful story of grace and forgiveness. And it is. At least for one person. But not everyone received life from Jesus. The religionists (the Pharisees and teachers of the law) walked away from life. They were more concerned about […]

Animation 3: The Adulterous Woman – Life in the New Life

Posted: 07 May, 2017 | Author: Steve Nelson

The religious leaders tried to trap Jesus by bringing before him a woman who had been caught in the act of adultery. Would he withhold mercy and have her put to death, or would he show mercy and ignore the law? One response would put Jesus in a horrible light with the people, and the […]

Have you ever thought about the Day of Judgement when Jesus addresses the masses of people who have lived since the beginning of the world? Will He be angry and condemning? Loving and compassionate?

Does God Speak at Church?

Does God Speak at Church?

Posted: 12 Feb, 2017 | Author: Steve Nelson

If those who speak are supposed to speak as if speaking the very words of God, how are those who listen supposed to listen? In faith, can we believe that God will speak to us through His Word, through worship, through others, and even through the sermons we hear? 1 Peter 4:11a If anyone speaks, […]

Soldier, Cupcake, Christian – A Higher Calling 17

Posted: 29 Jan, 2017 | Author: Steve Nelson

The church in Corinth had serious issues that Paul addressed throughout 1 Corinthians. He spoke so strongly on at times that you might think his letter to them would have ended their relationship. Yet as he concluded his letter in chapter 16, instead of writing an it-was-nice-knowing-you ending to their relationship, he penned a very ordinary […]

For the Good of All: A Higher Calling 5
