PREACHING ON THE PRACTICAL STUDY OF GOD
During the next five weeks, we will study the Epistle of James... because of Matthew 16: 21-28 and because out of seven people at the church, seven said they wanted to hear more about how to put into practice that which we preach, that which we confess, that which we believe!
Beginning August 30, we will take five Sundays to consider a practical study of the teachings of Jesus according to the Epistle of James. This epistle has a unique earthly relationship with Jesus, but James' letter clarifies what the Christian life should look like, feel, and be for us all who claim Christ as "the Messiah, the Son of the living God"
The Book of James is filled with practical wisdom for Christians, calling us to live out genuine faith through good works, but it is also rooted in rich theology. Perhaps more than any other book in the New Testament, James emphasizes the application of Christian belief.
Together we will examine the core message of James: the relationship between faith and works and how we don’t work to be saved; we work because we are saved.
HOW GOOD AND PLEASANT
IT IS WHEN GOD'S PEOPLE ARE
TOGETHER IN UNITY!
Sermons and Scriptures
Read // Matthew 16: 21 - 28
Jesus is trying to teach us that we are saved by "Grace Alone" but the "Grace" that saves never comes alone.
We should not be like Peter in one verse saying that we
know Jesus Christ is The Messiah and then in another
verse saying that we know better than The Messiah.
"The message that goes to work"
James 1: 19 - 27
"What you believe and what you do"
"Taming of the untamable"
"Sometimes you are full of it"
"A time to be bold"
