Realizing God’s Promise

How long have you ever waited for a gift?  Throughout our Gospel Project journey we’ve heard God’s promises throughout the Old Testament and recently through his prophets.  Promises to restore humanity through the Messiah from the line of David. Join us this Sunday as we jump over 500 years from where we’ve been in the…

Seeking Jesus

Epiphany is a Christian feast day that celebrates the revelation of God incarnate as Jesus Christ.  A time for us to commemorate the visit of the Magi, and Jesus’ physical manifestation to the Gentiles. It is sometimes called Three Kings’ Day.  But what was it that got those three kings thinking and motivated them to…

Live by Faith

Despite having God’s law, God’s people remain sinful in their hearts. The prophet Jeremiah prophesied about a coming-day when God would write His law on His people’s hearts and provide lasting forgiveness of sin. This prophecy points to God’s provision of Jesus. Through Jesus, God offers us forgiveness, and through the Holy Spirit, God enables…

Repent and Believe

“Repent and believe.”  It’s been the cry of preachers ever since the time of Jesus.  Simply defined, repentance is turning away from sin and self to Christ for forgiveness and salvation.  And yet, in our lives, it’s often not just that simple.

God’s Promise

King David finds rest from his enemies and desires to build a temple for God.  God denies David’s plan to build the temple and instead promises to give David, and Israel, blessings that would extend beyond this life into the next. Have you ever been denied something you really wanted?  Join us to hear more…

Who is Your Champion?

The consequences of the people’s foolishness in demanding a king did not take long to manifest under King Saul.  Now, in David we begin to see the kind of King that God desires while also catching a glimpse of the future King of kings that God would one day provide.  Join us today as we…

The King of Kings

The Israelites now want a king like the other nations to judge and lead them.  They believed a human king would do than Samuel and his sons;, but, in rejecting the leadership of Samuel, they were rejecting the kingship of the Lord. Join us to hear more concerning God’s Permissive Will that allows people to…
