God’s Word Preached

We are committed to the faithful, expositional preaching of the Bible. Expositional or ‘expository’ preaching—which is commonly referred to as “verse-by-verse” preaching—simply means that the biblical text drives the content of the sermon. In other words, faithful exposition takes the point of the sermon from the text, and seeks to explain and apply it in an understandable and engaging way (2 Timothy 3:16–4:5).

Listen in and be nourished with us on the riches of the Scriptures—verse by verse, book by book, week in and week out.

    Text: 1 Corinthians 5:6-13

    The local church is the physical representation of the larger body of Christ in a particular place at a particular time. It is the nexus of the Christian life; the place where the means of grace for sanctification are found. God's design for His people is that we do life together, and we can't be fully obedient to Him unless we're connected with His people. Church discipline is one of the means of grace He has provided for the preservation of His people and the purity of His church, and it is one of the corporate duties we fulfil in the context of our commitment to one another.

The local church is the physical representation of the larger body of Christ in a particular place at a particular time. It is the nexus of the Christian life; the place where the means of grace for sanctification are found. God's design for His people is that we do life together, and we can't be fully obedient to Him unless we're connected with His people. Church discipline is one of the means of grace He has provided for the preservation of His people and the purity of His church, and it is one of the corporate duties we fulfil in the context of our commitment to one another.
The church of Jesus Christ is commanded to take sin seriously because we are called to be holy. We do this by covenanting together in a local church and committing to following our Lord's instructions concerning how to deal with sin within the context of that community. Christ has provided a universal, step-by-step set of instructions for how to do this which is commonly referred to as church discipline. When we embrace these divine directions in obedience and seek to rightly understand and apply them, we will find that discipline is a means of grace for His church.
Many Christians think discipleship is defined by two or more people doing a study together. This certainly is an aspect of discipleship, but certainly not all the task entails. What are the indispensable elements of spiritual leadership without which discipleship is impossible?

Christians face many challenges in the present day, whether it be the pressure from a post-Christian culture or the allurement of entertainment. Our self-serving reaction is to retreat from the fray or indulge the flesh. But God calls us to stop living for ourselves and to spend our lives for His glory. This means that we have a responsibility to reach the unbelieving world around us for Him. When we endeavor to walk in wisdom toward the world, we will be mindful of our testimonies, intentional with our time, and skillful with our tongues.
God's ways are often seen as foolishness to men. When things don't seem to make sense, appearing either too extraordinary for our human sensibilities to accept, or just too ordinary to be God's handiwork, we dismiss them in disbelief. But what if God does what He does in the ways He does for that very reason, in order that we might be forced to bow the knee in humble submission and admit that "the foolishness of God is wiser than men" (1 Cor. 1:25)? Take a look at Christmas with fresh eyes and see the wisdom of God.
Jesus said, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life" (John 8:12). Sadly, the One who is the true light is rejected by the world because He exposes the darkness of their hearts. But the offer of forgiveness and eternal life is offered to all those who would turn and receive Him by faith.

Jesus taught us to pray, "Father, let your kingdom come." When God answers this prayer, he meets the world right at the point of its greatest need.
Pride is the underlying disease that affects each and every one of us and colors everything we think, do, and say. How do we address it? As a skilled physician of the soul, the Apostle Paul shows us by example what it looks like to deny ourselves and to take up our cross and follow Jesus.
Our natural tendency is to think too highly of ourselves and too lowly of others. We somehow deceive ourselves into thinking that our own wisdom, talents, and accomplishments are to our own credit, and set ourselves up as judges of others. But the word of the cross calls us to recognize that we have nothing we did not receive, and when we die to ourselves and embrace the reality of being in Christ, we find that all things belong to us by virtue of belonging to Him. This changes everything, beginning with how we think about ourselves and others.
The local church is sacred to the Lord, for His Spirit dwells within His people. There is coming a Day when He will test the work we did to build His church on the foundation laid by the apostles and prophets. Did we build according to His Word or according to human wisdom?
What makes a local church truly successful? How do we know if we are really doing the Lord's work, and who is accountable for it?
Many Christians believe spiritual leaders are the movers and shakers of the church who make things happen through their charisma and insight. But God says they are merely servants on assignment from Him and can accomplish nothing of eternal value without Him.
Why do some Christians never seem to grow? Is there such a thing as a 'carnal Christian,' or is perpetual immaturity an anomaly? Are spiritual people Christians who have reached a higher plane of knowledge and maturity? What exactly is the measure of spiritual maturity, anyway, and how do we grow in Christ?
