10 - Miracle Of Christmas

Selected Scriptures

December 23, 2018 • Pastor Ronald H. Gann

What is the true meaning of Christmas? It is the perennial question heard year after year among the faithful and faithless alike. At the heart of the nativity story is the answer. Amid the most unlikely of circumstances and to the most unlikely of parents, God incarnated Himself—in the person of Jesus Christ—in order to reconcile sinners to Himself. But exactly why is Christ's birth so significant beyond the affirmation of a historical fact, a theological truth, or a creedal confession? In this Advent series, Pastor Ronald H. Gann examines the Promise, the Proclamation, the Proof, the Prophecy, and the Premiere of the Christ child as well as the Christmas traditions behind the candy stick, Christmas tree, and wreath.

01 - Promise Of The Christ Child

November 25, 2012 • Pastor Ronald H. Gann

Christmas is not about children fables. It’s not meant to tell the story of jolly Old St. Nick who lavishes children with gifts, depending upon whether they are naughty or nice. Rather, Christmas tells the story of the Christ-Child -- the God Man -- first promised in Genesis 3 and made Manifest in Matthew 1. In this Advent series, Pastor Ronald H. Gann examines the Promise, the Proclamation, the Proof, the Prophecy, and the Premiere of the Christ child as well as the Christmas traditions behind the candy stick, Christmas tree, and wreath.

02 - Proclamation Of The Christ Child

December 2, 2012 • Pastor Ronald H. Gann

The first proclamation of the Christ-child of Christmas happened in the unlikeliest of places and to the unlikeliest of parents. Moreover, it revealed the unlikeliest of pregnancies. In this Advent series, Pastor Ronald H. Gann examines the Promise, the Proclamation, the Proof, the Prophecy, and the Premiere of the Christ child as well as the Christmas traditions behind the candy stick, Christmas tree, and wreath.

03 - Proof Of The Christ Child

December 9, 2012 • Pastor Ronald H. Gann

Of all the herculean announcements that God has made to mankind throughout history, as recorded in His Word, His announcement to Mary about the birth of the Christ-child of Christmas is one of only a few in the Bible where God offered a miraculous sign to substantiate His promise. In this Advent series, Pastor Ronald H. Gann examines the Promise, the Proclamation, the Proof, the Prophecy, and the Premiere of the Christ child as well as the Christmas traditions behind the candy stick, Christmas tree, and wreath.
