IN THE NAME OF JESUS Series: Testimony to the Resurrection

Today we begin the first of two mini-series that will take us through the great fifty days of Easter. In the first series, “In the Name of Jesus,” we will be focusing on what it means to claim the power of the name of Jesus as his followers. We will journey with the first disciples through the early chapters in the book of Acts, following them as they plant the very first Christian church and identifying how claiming the name of Jesus was the source of their strength, healing power and salvation.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS Series: Faith that Makes Us Strong

The good news is that on the other side of death is resurrection. We may participate in things that kill Jesus, but we have an opportunity for redemption. For in Christ, God offers us mercy and grace, no matter what the magnitude of our sin. It is important to ask ourselves,  “How am I living into Peter’s invitation to repentance, confession, and pardon?”

IN THE NAME OF JESUS Series: Salvation Comes

Salvation in the name of Jesus Christ doesn’t always look the way we wish it did. The good news is that the power of Jesus Christ is with us. His spirit resides in us, the body of Christ. His spirit gives us not just power to heal, but to be transformed by the power of love when we proclaim his name and love one another as he loved us. Salvation comes in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord.

And in the Power of the Holy Spirit... We Join the Outsiders

Who are we refusing to touch, see, embrace, love, accept, welcome? Who is the world rejecting that we can, in the power of the Spirit, reach towards? How can we, like Philip, offer the Good News of salvation in Jesus Christ (however it is understood) to those who come to us seeking to study and have conversation about the challenges of life in all the ways they present themselves?
