Here are some “sound bites” from last Sunday’s morning message, “Stop GOING to church (and start BEING the church) based on James 1:22-25:

  • The church is the building.
  • The church is the members.
  • We are the body of Christ.
  • When we meet, it isn’t “church” – it is the assembling of the church.
  • We must have this mindset if we are to live as God would like us to live.

Here are some “sound bites” from Sunday morning’s message, “The Christian Life: Evangelism” based 0n I Thessalonians 2:1-4:

  • You don’t have to be a Billy Graham to share the gospel.
  • The gospel is meant to be shared, not kept secret.
  • God has entrusted the gospel to us to share with others.
  • The gospel is true and can stand alone without gimmicks (like promises of health and wealth)
  • We share the gospel because we love God and want to please Him.

Here are some “sound bites” from Sunday morning’s sermon, “We Are Called to Faithfulness”, based on Mark 4:26-32.

  • God depends on us to sow the seed of the Gospel. (evangelism, missions)
  • While we are responsible for sowing the Gospel, it is God who causes growth (salvation)
  • After the growth (salvation) has begun, we are responsible to aide that growth (discipleship)
  • It isn’t the “Great Suggestion”; it is the “Great Commission”.
  • We are called to be fishers of men, not keepers of aquariums.
  • We are called to be faithful to God’s mission, that is, the ministry of reconciliation.
