Instead, they settled […]

Cleansing Power

This week we will continue in our series “Faith Confirming Accounts: Building Confidence From God’s Truth”. Never again will there be a global flood like the one described in Genesis 7. The rain came for 40 days and 40 nights, but the waters continued to flood the earth for five more months. We’ve seen first-hand […]

Put On Love

This week we will be wrapping up our summer series “What Not to Wear” by focusing on Colossians 3:14, ” And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.” Paul tells us to “put on” love, but not in a fake or pretend way. Genuine love lived out […]

New Self

This Sunday we will move on in the series “What Not to Wear”, based on Colossians 3.  “Take off the old self with its practices and put on the new self.” (v. 9-10) In the days of the early church, the gospel of Jesus Christ was revolutionary. Its doors were suddenly opened to the despised […]

Lying Lips

This week we will look at Colossians 3:9, “Do not lie to each other, since you have taken off your old self with its practices.” In our series “What Not to Wear”, Paul gives us another ragged and shabby garment to cast out of our wardrobe — lying lips. As believers, we are new people […]
