The Church Visible and Invisible Have you ever heard of the term “invisible church”? St. Augustine was the first to formalize the idea. He made a distinction between the invisible church and the visible church. This distinction by Augustine has been many times misunderstood and misapplied. What Augustine…

18 Now it happened that as he was praying alone, the disciples were with him. And he asked them, “Who do the crowds say that I am?” 19 And they answered, “John the Baptist. But others say, Elijah, and others, that one of the prophets of old has risen.” 20 Then he said to them, “But who do you say that…

What is church all about? That's a good question, isn't it!? If you're a Christian and go church, you might wonder about that from time to time.

The NT relates how the Christian church is the new people of God, assuming all the privileges and responsibilities of Israel in the OT, but with a universal mission to all the world, rather than any one nation.
Discovering the Church
The kingdom of God comes into being wherever the kingly authority of God is acknowledged. Although God is always sovereign, Scripture looks to a future “realm” or “reign” of salvation. This has come in Christ and yet will come in its fulness only when Jesus Christ returns.

It's easy to become discouraged. God has given church leaders to the body of Christ to build up and equip the church. Let's look to the book Ephesians to see how we can grow together in unity.
Becoming Who We Aim To Be
Life isn't a playground but a battleground. In order for us to live up to our high calling as Christ's church, we must be diligent and devoted to be trained in God's truth from His word in order to be strong in ministry.

Grow in Faith, Bring Hope to a Dying World, Be Known by our Love What does it really mean to be a Faith, Hope, and Love Church? We don’t want to play Church, we want to be the Church Jesus wants us to be. WE HAVE A MISSION! These three are intertwined like the individual strands of a rope. Imagine a…
This is Church
Scripture 26 What then shall we say, brothers and sisters? When you come together, each of you has a hymn, or a word of instruction, a revelation, a tongue or an interpretation. Everything must be done so that the church may be built up. 27 If anyone speaks in a tongue, two—or at the most three—should…
Growing Together Into God's Church
I can remember having a conversation, early on in my ministry, with a gentleman about the value of going to church. This man said something like this to me. I don’t see the need to go church. I get more out of being in the woods on Sunday morning than I do sitting in the pew. Why should I go to church?…

Spiritual warfare has its origin in a rebellion of many angels against God. Satan is seen as the prince of this world, leading an array of forces opposed to God. Although disarmed by Jesus Christ on the cross, they remain a powerful threat to the church and to individual believers.

Twelve Terms Each Christian Should Know
Trey Haskett • Sermon • • 19 views
Defining Church Now some cried out one thing, some another, for the assembly was in confusion, and most of them did not know why they had come together. And when he had said these things, he dismissed the assembly. But if you seek anything further, it shall be settled in the regular assembly. Visualizing…
