Stand Alone Sermons
The Bond of Peace
Ephesians 4:1-6 • January 19, 2020 • John Martyn
Guest preacher John Martyn walked us through Ephesians 4 and challenged us to eagerly pursue keeping the bond of peace by the power of the Holy Spirit and the finished work of Jesus Christ. Only through the Holy Spirit can the Church walk out the exhortation in Ephesians 4, which is to bear with one another in love in order to maintain the bond of peace. This reveals the wisdom to God in the heavenly places and bears witness to Christ on earth.

January 5, 2020 • Morgan Nix

A Closer Look At Missional Communities
September 2, 2018 • Dhati Lewis
Missional Communities are the heart of Blueprint Church. A Missional Community (MC) is a group of people who are committed to one another and committed to living life together as they grow in the gospel, in the context of family, while living on mission. MC’s exists to serve a particular neighborhood or network of relationships in order to make disciples who make disciples. They are clustered geographically in order to foster greater depth of relationship and life-on-life disciple-making.
The Expected Christian Life
Galatians 2:20 • July 29, 2018 • Lucius Rouser IV
We are all seeking to find out what is expected of us. As followers of Christ, what does the expected Christian life look like? Paul teaches us in Galatians 2:20 that "The Expected Christian Life" is one that calls for us to embrace the substitutionary death of Christ and the substitutionary life of Christ. Observe as Pastor Lucius Rouser IV explains that as we vail ourselves, Christ is revealed in us. Due to technical difficulties, this sermon audio is unavailable.

The Church that Loves
Acts 2:41-47 • July 22, 2018 • Christian White
Often times our lives become consumed with the rituals of being apart of God's Church rather than living our Christianity in a way that seems revolutionary to the world. Pastor Christian White of Parkside Church challenges us in this sermon to rebuke a ritualist, "checklist" Christianity and embrace the revolutionary lifestyle that God calls us to as members of His family, which causes us to be ruled by God's Word, live generously with all people, and to find great joy in gathering together with our brothers and sisters in God's family, also known as The Church.

Rest For The Soul
Luke 12:13-34 • July 15, 2018 • Muche Ukegbu
Augustine said, "You (God) have made us for yourself, and our hearts are restless until they find rest in you. In this sermon, Pastor Muche Ukegbu affirms this truth and teaches us that satisfaction and rest for our soul will not come from tirelessly laboring with our hands to earn, build, and amass many treasures on this earth, but it will come by entrusting our hearts to God through the person & work of Jesus, therefore allowing us to rest, be satisfied, and be joyfully generous with all that God provides.
God Does Not Waste Our Pain
Psalm 116 • July 8, 2018 • Morgan Nix
In this life, there is pain and suffering. However, we belong to a God who does not waste these experiences but uses them to grow us in the image of Christ. The ability to use our pain rather than wasting it should lead us to give our thanks and praises to God.
Your Best Life Now
April 22, 2018 • John Martyn
We pause our Holy Nation series to look at Paul’s last recorded words to the Ephesian Elders. Paul gave everything up for the sake of the church, the lost, and for Christ. Are we living lives devoted to the spread of the gospel? Are we counting our lives of little value so we can run the race well? Do we have a deep abiding relationship with the Holy Spirit? In this message, our guest speaker encourages us to dig deep into our hearts to uncover the areas that are holding us back from living our best life for Jesus Christ.
Theology of Work pt. 2
Romans 12:1-3 • January 7, 2018 • Amisho Lewis
In light of Paul's commands in Romans 12:1-3, Amisho Lewis reminds us that every area and aspect of life is worship, removing the Sacred/Secular divide. Therefore we must submit ourselves and our work under His authority and sovereignty, as we seek to be cultivators and workers who are restoring dignity back to God's creation.
Fighting to keep Christ in Christmas
John 1:1-18 • December 24, 2017 • Dhati Lewis
As we celebrate Christmas, Pastor Lewis encourages us to keep Christ central by clinging to the person and work of Christ. As Pastor Lewis walks through these introductory paragraphs in the Gospel of John, he stresses what’s at stake is more than how we spell out Christmas.
