November 20th, 2010 1 comment

How fitting that on the Sunday before Thanksgiving we’ll be focusing on what it means to live with a “Vital Perspective.” It has been said that “Perspective is everything.” That’s why one encounter with Jesus changes everything, including our perspective on life. In what ways how does Christ change our outlook?

Come join us this Sunday as we give thanks to our good and great Father for all the blessings He has so richly poured into our lives! And don’t forget, bring someone who needs a vital encounter with Jesus!

See you tomorrow! Come expecting!

Vital Faith

November 11th, 2010 No comments

If you are a real Christian, as opposed to a pretender, the Bible says your life will be marked by one overarching aim: you want to be “well pleasing” to the Lord (2 Corinthians 5:9). In other words, you don’t live for your own selfish agenda. You want to know Christ and then make Him known to others. You want to please him in all things.

But how do we do that? What’s the key ingredient to all our “God-pleasing” activity? In a word: FAITH.

The writer of Hebrews tells us that “without faith, it is IMPOSSIBLE to please God” (11:6). That’s a pretty strong statement, isn’t it? So faith is essential for a life that pleases God.

What actually is FAITH? What does it look like? How do I know when I have it and when I don’t? Is my life pleasing to God?

Come Sunday and find out! And bring a friend who needs a vital encounter with Jesus Christ!

Vital Response

November 3rd, 2010 No comments

What is it like to have a vital encounter with the Living God?

There’s a popular worship song we sing which asks, “How can I stand here with You [God] and not be moved by You?” In other words, to come into the presence of the Living God is to be radically encountered. Weak, sinful, broken, finite creatures cannot be in God’s presence without being drastically changed.

But what does that change look like? What is our Vital Response to the touch of God in our lives?

Come out this Sunday as we’ll discuss the kind of response God demands from His people. And bring a friend who desperately needs a vital encounter with Jesus!
