As Christians, we worship a God of Words.  God clearly wants to make Himself known.  He has done this not only by what we see outside in nature, but especially in a living book.   This book, called the Bible or Scriptures, prompted Jesus to say to the people of His day, “You search the Scripture because you think that in them you have eternal life; it is these that testify about Me” (John 5:39)

Thus, each message that we teach is not only from the Scriptures, but point to the ONE of whom they testify.  Eternal life is found in the person of Jesus, not the book itself. Our method of teaching is called “expositional” which means the points of the sermon are based upon the text of Scripture itself.  We take the timeless truths contained in the Scriptures and clearly, practically apply them to our lives today.

In Each Other’s Lives: The Blessing of Church Discipline

The problems in the Corinthian church show us a critical truth about sin: spiritual arrogance blinds us to sin, but the love of Christ compels us to protect and restore. When we are puffed up, we are blind to the effects of sin on ourselves, our church family and those who have been captured by it. The Corinthian's were puffed up in a way that was destroying the church and blinding them to a life or death matter they desperately needed to intervene in but had failed to do so. Although the time, place and facts are different from our own, we must learn this lesson and live it out for the good of our souls, our church family and those we love.
