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.

Finding Joy
Sermon Series by Dr. Chris Moore
 
We seem to be living in a time when we are not hearing a lot of good news. How should we respond? It is not an option for God’s people to despair. The circumstances surrounding the writing of Philippians are not great either. Paul is imprisoned as he writes, and the church is experiencing its own challenges. Yet we see references to joy or rejoicing throughout. Many have referred to this book as the New Testament letter of joy. As we go through this letter, we will discover how we can experience authentic joy in this life even in the midst of the difficult circumstances and bad news.

Finding Joy Thru Knowing Christ
We look at this important passage of Scripture and talk about the heart of the Christian faith, knowing Christ.  While we are familiar with the language of “knowing Jesus” or “having a relationship with Jesus,” in this sermon we consider what it means to know Christ according to God’s Word.
