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.

5 Principles of Leadership from Jesus

July 11, 2019 • Eric McKiddie

Jesus did not come to be your leadership guru. He came to die on the cross, for the sins of his people and in your place. Yet, he did lead. And we can learn from how he led. The more we follow Jesus, the more ‘perfect’ we can be in emulating and taking on the characteristics of a good leader. And when we lead like Jesus, we leave a legacy that is shaped around Jesus.
