Immersed in Jesus — Baptism

This Sunday we celebrate with several who publicly declared their faith by baptism! Pastor Chris Garrison preached from Matthew 28:18-19 and Romans 6:3-6. He gave us the A,B,C's of Baptism showing us what Baptism is ABOUT, the BLESSING of Baptism, and the COMMAND of Baptism. By being immersed in water at baptism, we demonstrate how we are called, as Christians, to be immersed in Jesus and unleash the power and blessings of obeying this command.

16 Verses: “Unwavering Commitment” — Genesis 12:1-3

In this fifth week in the series, The Whole Story of The Bible in 16 Verses, Pastor Chris Garrison preaches from Genesis 12:1-3. Here we find God promising to make Abraham a great nation. Abraham has trouble seeing how God can honor that promise to a childless, wandering, nomad. But we see that God's unwavering commitment to Abraham became a reality. God's promise is not based on Abraham's abilities, but God takes upon Himself the consequences of keeping that covenant with Abraham. What can God do with your life if you are obedient to His call? You can trust His unwavering commitment to fulling His promises to you as well.

The Armor of God

(Please note, that due to technical difficulties, this recording is missing the first 5 minutes)

This Sunday, Brian Glodek. our Associate Pastoral Candidate, preaches from Ephesians 6:10-17 where Paul outlines the essential truths about the believer's warfare. Brian often references his own experience wearing protective armor while deployed in Afghanistan to clarify the importance of being properly geared up for war. Our Christian life is a battle. It is serious spiritual warfare. In Ephesians 6:10-17 we see encouragement, and the command, to be strong, to be ready, to gird ourselves with the "very armor of God" as we face Satan and the spiritual battles in which he will try to engage us.
