    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.

    1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
    In this sermon, we discover what we believe about the Kingdom of God and the end times.  We learn two extremes we should avoid.  One extreme is claiming to know more about the future than the Bible clearly reveals.  The other extreme is ignoring what the Bible clearly teaches.  We emphasize what the Bible emphasizes in order to be encouraged and motivated by Christ’s second coming.
