    The Church and the State
    Series: Specials
    This sermon was preached on the eve of the 2016 presidential election. How should Christians think about politics? Some think there are certain controversial issues such as politics that Christians should avoid. On the other hand, some think the solution to all our problems is found through political involvement. To help answer these difficult issues, we go to God’s Word and discover several timeless principles for how Christians should think about the relationship between the church and the state.

    Foundations of the Faith
    Series: Specials
    On October 31, 1517, Martin Luther nailed 95 theses to the church door in Wittenberg, Germany and effectively began the Protestant Reformation. 499 years later, we still celebrate and experience the benefits of that Reformation which helped restore the church to the foundational teachings of the Bible. In this sermon, we talk about the most significant principles that were reintroduced by Luther and the other Reformers: Scripture Alone, Grace Alone, Faith Alone, Christ Alone, and God’s Glory Alone.

    Salvations Belongs to the Lord
    Jonah 2 is a unique psalm Jonah prays to the Lord from the belly of the fish. We are reminded of our need for salvation. We need God’s grace as much as anyone, and it is important for us to recognize this lesson in order to experience his salvation. We are also reminded that salvation is from God from beginning to end. We simply need to cry out to him. Finally, we discover some of the results of salvation and ways in which Jesus is greater than Jonah.

    God is in Control
    We learn from Jonah 1 that God is in control in all places. Just as Jonah cannot escape God, neither can we. This thought is both humbling and encouraging. We also learn He is in control of all things. Like Jonah, we often affirm this truth but we don’t live like it. The good news is that God is gracious and He sends someone greater than Jonah.

    Making Disciples who Connect
    The message of the gospel is that we are not right with God but we can be because of what Christ has done at the cross. While the gospel is about being right with God, the gospel is also about the peace Jesus has established among God’s people. An important part of growing as a disciple of Christ is to grow together with God’s people. We discover from this text why we should value one another and why we should be connected with one another in the church.

We learn what it means to worship in spirit and truth and experience true satisfaction.

    At Vista Grande, we have a simple mission. We want to make disciples. We want to see people become disciples, and we want to see people grow up in Christ. One helpful part of our mission statement is four key words that describe what discipleship looks like so you can know what is expected of you. These four words reflect the values of the first church and every faithful church since Acts 2. We want to make disciples who worship, connect, serve & impact.
