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.

Moses, Midian and My Salvation (Exodus 2:11-25)

Scripture Passage: Exodus 2:11-25

Before Moses becomes the instrument of God's deliverance, he experiences failure and loss. He has a sense that God will use him in a unique way, but takes matters into his own hands, kills an Egyptian overseer and spends the next 40 years in the wilderness of Midian.
The story of the escape of Moses to Midian reminds us of an important reality for our life following Jesus. Specifically it reminds us that God who authors our salvation is the one who defines what salvation is in our specific circumstances and works out His plan in His time.
We are saved in the ultimate sense by what Jesus has done, but God's working of salvation in our lives is not limited to ultimate salvation. Rather, God shows up as the God who saves in many aspects of our life, which challenges us to trust Him rather in every circumstance instead of acting as our own savior in our day to day lives.
