Many people want to know what God has in store for their life. In this motivating sermon from evangelist Frank Brancato, we are reminded that God indeed has a purpose for us. The apostle Paul reminded the Corinthians to “glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s” (1 Corinthians 6:20), and we too should seek opportunities to bring glory to our God.
How does a Christian learn the will of God for worship and service? In this sermon evangelist Bruce Roebuck argues that command, example, and necessary inference are legitimate logical tools and there is abundant evidence that they are scripturally approved techniques for arriving at a more perfect understanding of God’s word.
The majority of modern, American Christians live a comfortable life of safety, security, and plenty. While we rightly thank God for such things, we must also beware. From the beginning of time even the most righteous individuals have struggled to stave off complacency and sinfulness during such times. In this lesson, Nate Bibens examines a handful of such Biblical examples while reminding Christians today of Moses’ message long ago, “Beware, Lest You Forget!”
In the midst of a discussion about idolatry, the apostle Paul called upon the example of the Lord’s Supper: “The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ? For we, though many, are one bread and one body; for we all partake of that one bread ” (1 Corinthians 10:16-17). The expression “one bread and one body” is the focus of this extremely helpful sermon from evangelist Clint De France. What does it mean? Why does Paul mention the Lord’s Supper in this context? How are Christians “one body” when partaking of the “one bread?” Learn the answers to these great questions today!
Many people are hesitant to visit a new church out of fear of the unexpected.
We would like to set your mind at ease. As visitor in one of our assemblies you will never be singled out for embarrassing attention or made to feel uncomfortable.
What you will find in one of our worship services is a reverent atmosphere for worship. Young and old, families and singles —all worship together in a common assembly.
Our desire is to worship God following the pattern one can discern in the New Testament Scriptures. You will hear and be able to participate in (should you so desire) congregational singing of beautiful hymns and spiritual songs in the singing service.Continue reading
You can be just a Christian! Does this sound strange?
With over 400 distinct religious bodies in our country, it might appear impossible to be Christian without being part of a denomination. It is not only possible, but there are actually millions of “Christians only” in this and other nations.
The Churches of Christ
Who are these people who seek to be only Christians?
The Congregations of which they are a part are usually known as “Churches of Christ.” This term is not used in a sectarian sense, but is intended to denote their desire to belong to Christ’s church. The Bible says, “All the churches of Christ greet you” (Romans 16:16).
However, it is just as correct to describe the church of which we read in the Bible as “the church of God” (1 Corinthians 1:2), “the body of Christ” (1 Corinthians 12:27), or “the household of faith” (Galatians 6:10). These and similar Biblical phrases are not proper names, but descriptive expressions which show how the church is related to Christ and His Father.
Individually, Christ’s followers are known as “Christians” in the Bible.
“The disciples were called Christians first in Antioch” (Acts 11:26). “If a man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but glorify God in this name” (1 Peter 4:16).
Never does a human name prefix this God-given name. Paul was one of the greatest of all Christians, but he did not want the disciples to be called “Paulites” or “Paulite Christians” (1 Corinthians 1:10-17).
