10 Distinctives of a Gospel-Centered Church

People talk all the time about what they’re looking for in a church. But what is God looking for in a church? That’s the question we should be asking. It’s not for the church to decide what is important and then look for Bible texts to support our passion. We must start with the Bible, where God tells us what’s important to Him, so we can follow after His passion. Discover God’s passion for His people in this ten-sermon series.

Gospel Leadership

“The elders who direct the affairs of the church are worthy of double honor…” 1 Timothy 5:17 (NIV) Gifted and godly leaders are a sign of God’s blessing on a church. Leaders who don’t know what they’re doing are a sign of God’s judgment. Where do I get that? In a time when God’s judgment […]
