Of all the sermons ever preached, one reigns supreme: The Sermon on the Mount in Matthew 5-7. In that sermon, Jesus gives practical advice for how a Christian should live. In this extensive sermon series, Pastor Merritt will spend several months walking verse-by-verse through this life-changing sermon. Following Jesus is different from the way of the world, and those who follow Jesus will look different than the rest of the world. Join us for this series: “Get Used to Different: A New Way to Live."
A person's character--who he is--determines the impact he or she has on others. The Bible unlocks nine key qualities of a Christ-follower that, if consistently exercised and seen by others, will influence them toward Christ and their own full potential in Him. In Galatians we see the Fruit of the Spirit--nine traits the Apostle Paul mentions that are part of the character of a Christ-follower.
No one can do anything about his heritage, but he can do something about his legacy. Beginning today, you can become the kind of person who makes a life-changing difference for others. In Christ, your life can be tasty--one that others see and crave because they see Jesus in you.
He was foretold from the beginning--soon after the world's very creation. He would come to vanquish sin and death, once and for all. The people anticipated His coming for literally thousands of years--a mighty warrior who would destroy evil and reign as ruler over all that was good for all time.
And yet when He did finally come, it was not the approach of hoofbeats that sounded His arrival, but the cry of a baby. And when He came to the battlefield, He was not the last soldier standing, but the first and only one to be sacrificed. Yet in the end, this Warrior will be called King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.
Listen to this powerful series set around the Easter season entitled "The Warrior". Hear the story of Christ from a decidedly different perspective, and be joyful in the victory of the One who fought for you, and gave His very life for you.
