Two "At One" (1 John 2:1-6)

Our sixth Article of Faith states, "We believe that Jesus Christ, by His sufferings, by the shedding of His own blood, and by His death on the Cross, made a full atonement for all human sin, and that this Atonement is the only ground of salvation, and that it is sufficient for every individual of Adam’s race."

Know Your Disease, Know the Cure (Romans 5:12-19)

Our fifth Article of Faith deals with sin. We have all sinned and are in need of a Savior.

The Spirit of Life- Pastor James Dolinger

Our third Article states, "We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Third Person of the Triune Godhead, that He is ever present and efficiently active in and with the Church of Christ, convincing the world of sin, regenerating those who repent and believe, sanctifying believers, and guiding into all truth as it is in Jesus."

The Word of Life (1 John 1:1-10)

Article two states, "We believe in Jesus Christ, the Second Person of the Triune Godhead; that He was eternally one with the Father; that He became incarnate by the Holy Spirit and was born of the Virgin Mary, so that two whole and perfect natures, that is to say the Godhead and manhood, are thus united in one Person very God and very man, the God-man. We believe that Jesus Christ died for our sins, and that He truly arose from the dead and took again His body, together with all things appertaining to the perfection of man’s nature, wherewith He ascended into heaven and is there engaged in intercession for us."

Knowing the Father (John 14:6-27)

We have a desire to know God. If we believe Jesus- then we know Jesus' actions in the gospels are God's actions. "If you have seen me, then you have seen the Father."

Our Life Frame (Revelation 10:8-11)

This morning, we began our fall series on the Nazarene Articles of Faith. We being with our fourth Article on the Holy Scriptures.

The Son of Man (Daniel 7)

In chapter 7, Daniel's story turns from a historical book to an apocalyptic one. It is a shift that tells a beautiful story of the reign of God.

The Miracle of Protection (Daniel 6)

Daniel and the lion's den is probably the most famous story from the book of Daniel.

Dancing in the Flames (Daniel 3:24-30)

The story of the fiery furnace is one of the great stories of the Old Testament. The story speaks to us today- it is not a story of defiance, but worship of the One True God.

Strange Dreams (Daniel 2:31-49)

Daniel 2 brings us an odd story. King Nebuchadnezzar cannot sleep due to a bad dream. He wants to dream interpreted, but will not tell anyone the dream.

The Challenge of Faithfulness (Daniel 1)

Today we begin our new series on the book of Daniel. When we lose focus on our God, we tend to forget that our God is bigger than Babylon.

Sanctifying Grace (Romans 5:1-5)

We wrap up our Easter series today. Sanctification is an important biblical doctrine where grace grows us into what God has designed us to be.

Justifying Grace (2 Corinthians 5:16-19)

John Wesley left us a great theological tradition. We stand with Wesley on the shore of our salvation asking the question, "What do we do now?" Is there more to the Christian life than salvation?

I Will Make a Difference (1 Cor. 13)

Today, we wrap up our 'I Will' series. Will you make the sacrifices in life to allow God to make a difference through you?

I Will Avoid the Traps of Churchianity

Do we understand what Christianity means or are we stuck in "Churchianity'?

I Will Not Be a Church Dropout (Ephesians 2:1-10)

Why do Christians drop out of church? Could it be that we haven't learned to celebrate the beauty of God's grace and mercy shown through His Son?

I Will Live Generously (Matthew 6:19-21, 6:24, 7:28-29)

Many Christians struggle with what it means to be generous. Today, we explore what it means to live generously. The key is to remember that God is our model of generosity!

I Will Go (Acts 1:8, Acts 4:19-20)

In Acts 1:8, Jesus tells us to go to "Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth". We focus many times on 'the end of the earth', but forget our Jerusalem.

I Will Listen- Pastor Melissa Brussa

Pastor Melissa Brussa joins us this morning. She challenges us to lean into God and one another.

I Will Serve (Matthew 20:21-28)

I will serve. Service is an important aspect of the Christian life. We must learn what it is to serve those around us.
