The Gospel in all of Life

On Singleness and Kingdom Effectiveness

1 Corinthians 7:25-40 • April 14, 2019 • Bert Alcorn

Undivided devotion to the Lord should guide decisions about whether to remain single or to marry, but other factors, which point to the value of remaining unmarried, should all be considered.

The Assigned Life

1 Corinthians 7:17-24 • April 7, 2019 • Bert Alcorn

What defines you as a believer is not your family, your job, etc. but your identity in Christ.

Marriage & Divorce

1 Corinthians 7:1-16 • March 31, 2019 • Steve Scherer

All relationships are complicated, we need Jesus at the center of all of them to find the joy, contentment and hope that the Gospel brings. Whatever your situation, work hard to put Jesus at the center and “Glorify God with your body.”

Flee Sexual Immorality

1 Corinthians 6:12-20 • March 24, 2019 • Steve Scherer

You were bought at a price, so glorify God in your body.

And Such Were Some of You

Why Not Be Wronged?

1 Corinthians 6:1-8 • March 10, 2019 • Bert Alcorn

As followers of Jesus, we don’t live in a bubble, but we do have a different ecosystem… our lives are shaped by a new kingdom and the world does not know how to properly engage that, so there are things that we need to deal with “in house”. - 1 Corinthians 6:1-8; John 13:34-35; Ephesians 5:8; 2 Corinthians 5:17; Matthew 5:38-48; Romans 12:18; 1 Peter 2:19-25; John 17:20-21

Deliver Them to Satan?

1 Corinthians 5:1-13 • March 3, 2019 • Bert Alcorn

Someone claiming to be a follower of Jesus, yet living in unrepentant sin is not only unacceptable, but it damages the entire church. The remedy to sin in the body is to defend holiness and purity in our individual lives and in those in the church, and in grace, walk with those in sin, as a family, toward reconciliation. - 1 Corinthians 5:1-13; Matthew 18:14, 15-20; Romans 1:24, 26; 1 John 1:9-10

Get Off The Sidelines

1 Corinthians 4:6-21 • February 24, 2019 • Bert Alcorn

The call on followers of Jesus is not to be critical spectators, but engaged participants in the advancement of the Gospel. - 1 Corinthians 4:6-21; Matthew 28:19-20; Romans 10:14; James 1:22-25

Grow Up!

1 Corinthians 3:1-17 • February 17, 2019 • Bert Alcorn

This is the audio teaching from Bert's sermon at Anthem Camarillo. - Maturity is built on the foundation of the Gospel and God causes that maturity to grow, while people can contribute to that growth, they are not the heroes of the story. - 1 Corinthians 3:1-17; 1 Peter 5:2-4; Hebrews 13:17

Get Your Act Together

1 Corinthians 3:1-17 • February 10, 2019 • Terry Fouche

Maturity is built on the foundation of the Gospel and God causes that maturity to grow, while people can contribute to that growth, they are not the heroes of the story.

People of the Age to Come

1 Corinthians 2:6-16 • January 27, 2019 • Bert Alcorn

The Gospel is simple in presentation, but complex and layered in its endless implications and can only be understood through the Spirit.

The Foolishness of God

1 Corinthians 1:18-2:5 • January 20, 2019 • Bert Alcorn

Christ crucified is the crux of the foolish Gospel. Your faith is not in the wisdom of men, first and foremost your faith needs to placed in Jesus or it will crumble. 1 Corinthians 1:18-2:5; Matthew 16:1-4; Ephesians 2:1-10

A Church Divided

1 Corinthians 1:10-17 • January 13, 2019 • Bert Alcorn

Christ is not divided, the Gospel is not designed to divide us into camps but to unify us for the purpose of mission. John 17:20-21; John 13:34-35; Galatians 1:6-7; Matthew 18:15-17; 1 Corinthians 1:10-17; Acts 18:24-28; 1 Thessalonians 5:12-13; Ephesians 4:1-6

A Church Called

1 Corinthians 1:1-9 • January 6, 2019 • Bert Alcorn

Paul opens his letter - that all of life's most complex problems can be seen through the lens of the gospel - to the new Christians in Corinth, by first greeting them and affirming his identity in Christ, and theirs.
