We Believe

We Believe
 
Our church’s normal approach to preaching is to go through books of the Bible. For this series, we are taking a different approach. We are looking at our doctrinal statement, the 2000 Baptist Faith & Message. Each week we are focusing on a different section from our statement. For example, we talk about Scripture, God, man, salvation, and the church. We will ask the question, “What does the Bible teach about this subject?” The reason we affirm this doctrinal statement is because we believe it accurately reflects what the Bible teaches. Christians seem to be increasingly less interested in doctrinal statements and theology. Healthy believers and churches have always been able to articulate and defend what they believe. Our goal in this series is simply to guard and be faithful to “the faith once for all delivered to the saints.”

    The Social Order & War
    Series: We Believe
    In this sermon, we talk about what role Christians should serve in society.  We discover two extremes we should avoid: withdrawing from the world and losing sight of the central issue, the gospel.  Being salt and light in our society requires us to address societal issues, and we learn that we should prioritize certain social issues because they are strongly connected to the gospel.  We address the sanctity of all human life, sexual immorality, helping the helpless, and war.

    Mark 10:17-27
    In this sermon, we focus on what we believe about stewardship.  We discover basic principles such as everything is owned by God.  And we are responsible for stewarding what God has loaned us.  We also learn that we should love God more than money and our giving reflects what we value.  We see the ultimate motivation for why we should be good stewards and give sacrificially.

    In this sermon, we discover what we believe about evangelism and missions.  We answer the big questions: who, what, when, where, why, and how.  The goal is for us to become more motivated to be involved in what God is wanting to do through us in our neighborhoods and to the end of the earth for Him.
