A Spiritual Embassy

The church could be thought of not as an outpost, but an embassy. The building in the picture is the U.S. Embassy in Moscow, a little sliver of land belonging to the U.S. within a foreign country.  It is there to represent the U.S. and its interests. In a similar way, the church is [...]

The Church is a Family

The church is more than a club.  It is more than a group of people who agree on a certain political issue.  It goes beyond a shared interest in same style of music.  The church is a group of people who have been brought together through the reconciling work of Jesus.  They are a [...]

Your Participation in Church has a Significant Impact on Other People

Even if you don’t show up for yourself, you should show up for the benefit of others.   In 1 Corinthains 12:15, Paul writes, “15 If the foot should say, “Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body,” that would not make it any less a part of the body.” A [...]

When You Come to Jesus, You Become Part of the Family

Your relationship with Jesus has dramatic effects and implications on your relationships with other people – especially people within the church.  Consider what Paul says in Galatians 3:26-28: “In Christ Jesus you are all sons of God, through faith. 27 For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there [...]

Being a Vital Part of a Church Family Begins by Showing up… Often

Becoming vital at church begins with walking through the door on a regular basis.  People who place a high value on their spiritual lives also place a high value on gathering with God’s family.  They are determined to show up.  Partners in the gospel don’t just come when they feel like it or when [...]

A Vital Church Defined

Sr. Pastor Mark Stafford     A Vital Church Defined On and off I’ve participated with a local cycling club, a group of guys who meet a few times a week to ride road bikes.  They head out on the road together and ride 15 or 20 miles.  [...]

People Who Pray are Vital to the Body of Christ

Prayer prompts God to do things in the lives of His people that He may not have otherwise done.   The whole of Scripture tells us that God hears and answers the cries of his people.  The Bible stresses the great importance of asking Him what we need both in this life and for eternity.  [...]

A Multitude of Heavenly Host Proclaiming the Huge Significance of Christmas

“8 And in the same region there were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9 And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with great fear.” - Luke 2:8-9 A single angel appeared to a group of shepherds out [...]

A Christmas Communion Message

The Gospel of John takes a different approach than the traditional way the Christmas story is told in the other Gospels.  He begins his book by saying this: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” Instead of putting the story of Christmas with the shepherds and angels [...]

Practically Speaking, How Do You Serve Jesus?

What you do for the people at church, you do as unto Jesus Himself.  Jesus makes this point abundantly clear in Matthew 25.  In the parable of the sheep and the goats, He describes two groups of people: One group is righteous. The other is not. He describes the actions of the righteous people [...]
