    Our Salvation
    We begin this sermon series by talking about our salvation because our salvation is central and foundational to everything else we believe and practice.  We go through select passages in Romans and summarize the gospel using the paradigm GOD, MAN, CHRIST, RESPONSE.  After explaining the gospel, we talk about implications of the gospel such as regenerate church membership and salvation symbols (baptism and the Lord’s Supper).

    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.

    Stewardship and Cooperation
    Series: We Believe
     
    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.
