Salt & Light

We were saved for something more than just going to heaven one day. Jesus has a purpose for our lives right here and now; a mission for us to complete. He said we must be salt and light to the world around us. But what exactly does that mean, and how do we actually do that? Join us as we discover some valuable lessons that will help us be the kind of influence Jesus has called us to be.

The Gifts of Christmas

The Gift of Hope

Date: December 2, 2018 | Speaker:

If we’re not careful, it’s easy for all our hopes and prayers to revolve around us. “God, please take away these problems… give me more money… a happier marriage… a nicer house…” While there’s nothing wrong with having hopes and dreams, we often fail to realize that our greatest needs are actually much deeper. Jesus came to give us a brand new kind of hope, one that truly satisfies and lasts forever! Is your hope in Him?

Communing with God

Date: November 25, 2018 | Speaker:

Often we read how we are to behave and what we are to do as followers of Christ. How do we find the power and inspiration to do it and continue when it gets difficult? The key is keeping in constant contact with the Father. It’s by communing (praying) and reading His Word.

A True Disciple Invests in Eternity

Date: November 11, 2018 | Speaker:

We have each been given a brief span of years on this earth. During our lifetime we can choose to invest our thoughts, our time and our treasures in the things of this world, or we can choose to invest them in eternity. Jesus said if we live for earthly things, we will actually miss life altogether, but if we live for Him and the gospel, we will discover what true life really is. So, when you take an honest look at your life, where are you investing yourself?

A True Disciple Makes Disciples

Date: November 4, 2018 | Speaker:

In church circles, we often repeat Jesus’ command to “Go and make disciples.” We’re familiar with the phrase, but what about the meaning? What does it mean to be a disciple? And how do we go about making disciples? In our culture today, we more often use the title of “Christian” than disciple, but does it convey the same meaning? Listen as we unpack these powerful words of Jesus, and take a glimpse at what’s included in this final imperative from Him.

A True Disciple Lives by Godly Convictions

Date: October 28, 2018 | Speaker:

“Renounce your faith in Christ and live, or else you will be put to death!” Countless believers have had to face that decision over the centuries. How would you respond if you were given that choice? Would your faith stand firm or would it crumble? The time to determine that is not then; it’s right now. What biblical convictions are you building into your life now that would enable you to walk through such a moment of crisis? Without those convictions in place, we will never be able to even live for Christ, much less die for Him!

A True Disciple Walks in the Spirit

Date: October 21, 2018 | Speaker:

Have you ever prayed, “God, I’m sorry for that sin. I promise I’ll never do it again!” You sincerely meant those words, and you were more determined than ever to do better, but even your most valiant attempts to live a holy life always leave you frustrated and defeated. There’s a good reason we continue to fail in our efforts to live for God, and the Bible tells us how to break these patterns of defeat. By ourselves, we are incapable of living holy lives, but the Spirit of God in us can! Are you allowing Him to live His life through you?

A True Disciple is Filled with the Spirit

Date: October 14, 2018 | Speaker:

When we are saved, the Holy Spirit comes to live inside of us. His role in our lives is indispensable, and yet He is the least acknowledged and least appreciated person of the Trinity. If we truly understood all that He does for us every moment of every day, and the devastation our lives would be in without His convicting, teaching, guiding and empowering, we would appreciate Him far more, and we would long to be filled with Him continuously. Today we learn how we can be filled with the Spirit, and what that actually means.

A True Disciple is Obedient and Loving

Date: October 7, 2018 | Speaker:

We all have our own ideas of what love is, but the Bible provides the only true definition. It tells us that we cannot just say we love God and love others; our actions must back up our words. We prove our love for God, not by talking about it, but by obeying His commands. And we prove our love for others, not through words, but by serving them and sacrificing ourselves for them, just as Jesus did for us. If we don’t obey God, we don’t love Him. If we’re not serving others, we don’t love them. So, how is your love?

A True Disciple is Saved and Surrendered

Date: September 30, 2018 | Speaker:

The first mark of a true disciple is that he is saved. Jesus said there are many people doing religious things in His name, yet they will be turned away from heaven because they were never really born again. But salvation is just the first step. Once we’re saved, we cannot continue to run our own lives. We must turn over the throne of our heart to Him, surrendering everything to His leadership. It is difficult to give up control, but the truth is, our lives will never make sense or be fulfilling until the One who made us is completely in charge.

You are the Light of the World

Date: September 23, 2018 | Speaker:

If you light a candle in a room that is already filled with light, the candle will not make any difference. But light that same candle in a totally dark room, and the darkness will disappear. The Bible tells us that we live in a world of spiritual darkness, and that we are to be a light in that darkness. Our light was never meant to be kept inside the church. It was meant to be taken into the dark world. Is there anyone in your circle of influence who could use your light right now?
