At VGBC, we believe very strongly that God has spoken and communicated to us in the Bible.  Because of this conviction, our preaching is based on God’s Word.  The responsibility of the preacher is to discover what the biblical text means and explain it in a way that the congregation will understand.  We are committed to expository preaching, which simply means we want to expose the clear meaning of the text.  We want you to be able to read along in your Bible and be able to verify that what is being taught from the pulpit is consistent with what the text says.  We also believe that the goal of preaching is application and lives changed for God’s glory.  We want you to be challenged and encouraged, and we hope you are changed to be more like Christ as a result of hearing His Word.

Sojourners
Sermon Series by Dr. Chris Moore
 

We are living in a challenging time as we experience the coronavirus and its impact on our world.  During a season like this, we must learn to place ourselves under God’s Word and let Him speak to us and tell us what we need to hear.  1 Peter addresses God’s people who are experiencing challenges.  The main message of this letter is to stand firm as sojourners because our hope is greater than this world.  As we go through this book, we are encouraged to stand firm and remain faithful.  We are reminded our hope is certain and this world is not our ultimate home.  We are sojourners.

    Marriage for Sojourners
