Why Church Membership (Part 1)

Is It Biblical? • January 17, 2020 • Jay Thomas

It's difficult to read Scripture and dismiss the motif of community. It's everywhere from the Godhead to the family unit. We're designed to be together. And yet, attempt to define "the church," and you have to make a clarification, are you referring to the Church universal, or are you referring to a local gathering of Christians in a specific location? Take it a step further and you'll soon enough get to the topic of "formal membership." What is church membership? Is it biblical? Is it important? In this 3-part series, Pastors Jay and Ryan host special guest, Matt Gilleskie, who holds to a strong conviction that the local church should be definable and contractual.

Happy Reformation Day!

What was the Reformation all about? • October 31, 2019

What is Reformation Day? It is the day the light of the gospel broke forth out of darkness. It was the day that began the Protestant Reformation. It was a day that led to Martin Luther, John Calvin, John Knox, and may other Reformers helping the church find its way back to God’s Word as the only authority for faith and life and leading the church back to the glorious doctrines of justification by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone. It kindled the fires of missionary endeavors, it led to hymn writing and congregational singing, and it led to the centrality of the sermon and preaching for the people of God. It is the celebration of a theological, ecclesiastical, and cultural transformation. In this episode, Pastor Jay Thomas and Ryan McKee discuss the birth of the Protestant Reformation on October 31st, and its implication to us today 502 years later.
