Checks, Balances, and Biblical Church Government

One of the most controversial topics in churches has always been, “Who should be in charge?”  Perhaps you’ve seen the one man model where what one person (the leader) says goes.  Or maybe you’ve been privy to the congregationally driven church where the people’s vote takes precedence over any and everything.  In this powerful and insightful teaching, hear the answer to the simplest of questions, “Lord, what does the Scripture say about who should be leading the New Testament Church?”

Water Baptism & The Baptism of the Holy Spirit

A great question is, “What does Scripture teach about water baptism in relationship to our salvation?”  We explore this topic as well as the ever controversial baptism of the Holy Spirit.  All four gospels record one of the main missions of Jesus Christ was to baptize (fully immerse) His followers in the Holy Spirit. This is not a ministry relegated to the apostles or to a certain time frame, this assignment belongs to Jesus and we will see what Scripture has to say about His desire to “fill us!”

Salt and Light

Join us for a discussion about what it looks like to be salt and light.

“13 “You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men. 14 “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. 16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.”

- Matthew 5:13-16
