Apostolic Plans, Final Instructions

The importance of love and unity within the body of Christ is essential for us to image God and to declare the gospel before the world. However, our humanity often draws us back into selfishness quickly destroying our unity. When we are selfish, we refuse to give to others because we horde our resources for ourselves; we refuse to accept others because they don't meet our standards; or we fail to recognize the good work that others are doing because we'd rather people notice us. Paul encourages us to love in all that we do (1 Cor 16:14), and if we could manage this simple yet difficult command, our church and our impact would be much stronger. May God grant us the grace to love through His Spirit who unites us. Read More

Resurrected Christ, Changed Body

If we aren't careful in our thinking about the resurrection, we might begin to think that our resurrection will be a mere re-animation of the bodies that we currently have. We might even think that the resurrection is some thing like a zombie apocalypse. Yet, Paul is adamant that although there is a continuity between our current bodies and our resurrected bodies, our resurrected bodies are of a different sort of body from our current bodies. Thus the transformation that we will undergo in the resurrection ought to inspire and motivate our current transformation as we strive for what is to come before we experience its full reality. May God grant us the grace to be transformed into the image of His already glorified Son that we might magnify His glory in our yet natural bodies. Read More

Missions Conference 2017

The goal of having missionaries come and present their ministry is not for us to evaluate their "success" in worldly terms, but to hear about what God is doing through them on the field. This then results in their joy in spending time with us and hopefully their refreshment as they have a time to rest and recuperate from the stress of ministry in a foreign culture and often under difficult conditions. May God use our time with the missionaries this weekend to bring joy to their hearts and refresh them for the next phase of ministry God has called them to. Don't miss out on an opportunity to refresh our missionaries while they are with us. Read More
