Your Work Matters

Colossians 3:22-4:1 • July 22, 2018 • Bert Alcorn

Because our relationship with God has changed through Jesus, our relationships with those around us must change for Jesus. The work that we do should be shaped and informed by the power of the Gospel and the way that we work displays or distorts Jesus to the world around us. Colossians 3:22-4:1; Genesis 1:26-28; Genesis 3:17-19; Genesis 2:8-15; 1 Corinthians 15:58

Children & Parents: Submit to Jesus

Colossians 3:20-21 • July 15, 2018 • Bert Alcorn

Because our relationship with God has changed through Jesus, our relationships with those around us must change for Jesus. Jesus can be displayed or distorted by how we occupy our roles and parents and children. Colossians 3:20-21; Acts 2:44; Exodus 20:12; Deuteronomy 5:16; Ephesians 6:1-3

Wives & Husbands: Submit to Jesus

Colossians 3:18-19 • July 8, 2018 • Bert Alcorn

Because our relationship with God has changed through Jesus, our relationships with those around us must change for Jesus. Your job as a husband or wife is to reflect Jesus to your spouse. You are to act towards them as a person filled by the Spirit working to represent Jesus to them through the role and responsibilities that you occupy. Colossians 3:18-19, 3:1-4, 3:18-4:1; 1 Corinthians 11:3; John 5:19, 6:38, 14:28; Ephesians 5:23; Galatians 3:28; Genesis 2:23, 2:18; Ephesians 5:25

Put on the New Self

Colossians 3:12-17 • July 1, 2018 • Matt Larson

If you become a follower of Jesus and the invisible parts of your life are rooted in Christ, then with Jesus as the centerpiece, the visible parts of your life should look like Jesus. Due to our transition schedule, we will be posting the Sunday teachings from Anthem Thousand Oaks, so you can keep up with our journey through the book of Colossians.

I am a Child of God

Colossians 3:5-11 • June 24, 2018 • Matt Larson

Paul show us how we can put to death "what is earthly" in us. As we go about life in a culture that is full of many sub-groups and ways that people self-identify, there needs to be a predominant understanding that the statement, "I am a child of God" supersedes all other identity markers. Due to our transition schedule, we will be posting the Sunday teachings from Anthem Thousand Oaks, so you can keep up with our journey through the book of Colossians.

Jesus is Our Identity

Colossians 3:1-4 • June 17, 2018 • Josh Lewis

We are called to find our whole identity in Jesus, and to put to death all parts of us that do not reflect Him. Due to our transition schedule, we will be posting the Sunday teachings from Anthem Thousand Oaks, so you can keep up with our journey through the book of Colossians.

Jesus is the Center

Colossians 2:6-23 • June 10, 2018 • Matt Larson

Here in Colossians 2:6-23, we see Paul plead with the church in Colossae (and us) to keep Jesus as the center of everything we are. We are also warned to not let anything rise to the level of saying that we are saved by, "Jesus and...." anything. It is Jesus alone who is worthy of our praise!​ Due to our transition schedule, we will be posting the Sunday teachings from Anthem Thousand Oaks, so you can keep up with our journey through the book of Colossians.

Stewards of the Gospel

Colossians 1:24-2:5 • June 3, 2018 • Kevin Bailey

To be a recipient of the Gospel is to be a steward of the Gospel. That affects how you choose to live in light of the Gospel and how you participate in passing on the mysteries of the Gospel.

A Jesus Song

Colossians 1:15-23 • May 20, 2018 • Bert Alcorn

Jesus Christ, the agent and goal of God’s act of creation, is the one through whom God reconciles all things through his death on the cross. Through this reconciliation, God will present believers as acceptable to himself if they continue to stand firm in the gospel they have received. Key Texts: Colossians 1:15-23; 2 Corinthians 4:4; Hebrews 1:3; Psalm 89:27

A Prayer for the Church

Colossians 1:9-14 • May 13, 2018 • Matt Larson

*Due to some technical difficulties, the audio from Anthem Ventura was not recorded. This is the teaching from Anthem Thousand Oaks.* The Colossians are to be filled with the knowledge of God so that they can live lives worthy of the gospel they have received. This knowledge centers on the powerful redemptive work of God through his beloved Son.

A Message of Hope

Colossians 1:1-8 • May 6, 2018 • Bert Alcorn

The letter to the Colossians deals with following Jesus in contrast to the philosophies and values of the world. Will we choose Jesus or the possessions, values and philosophies of a fallen world?
