Invited In To Gods Good Plan
October 11, 2015 • Doug Sauder • Ephesians 1, Romans 8
As Pastor Doug Sauder launches into our new weekend series in Ephesians, we study the teaching of the apostle Paul, who is chained in a Roman prison and pouring out his heart to the saints at Ephesus. We discover that not only are we saved and justified by God at Christ's expense, but we have been chosen and invited in—long before the foundations of the earth—as His deeply loved, adopted children.
Invited In To Experience God
October 18, 2015 • Chris Baselice • Ephesians 1
In this message, Pastor Chris Baselice picks up in chapter one in the Book of Ephesians as we make our way through a new series titled, "Invited In.” Here we see the apostle Paul deliver a heartfelt prayer to God, for the church, that wherever biblical information precedes, spiritual revelation will follow.
Invited Into a New Identity
October 25, 2015 • Doug Sauder • Ephesians 2, 2 Samuel 9
In this message, Pastor Doug Sauder shares from Ephesians 2:1-18. Paul is in jail, falsely accused, but out of his heart and pen flows a deep doxology about how rich we are as children of God. Nothing can compare to God's grace, a grace that made us alive while we were still dead.
Invited Into Gods Family
November 1, 2015 • Doug Sauder • Ephesians 2, Colossians 3
As the apostle Paul is chained to a Roman guard, he writes this letter to the church in Ephesus. His goal was to break down the walls that separate Jews and Gentiles and for them to understand that no matter what their background, when they enter the house of God they should feel welcome.
Invited Into Our Calling
November 8, 2015 • Jerry Sander • Ephesians 4
Continuing our study in the Book of Ephesians, Pastor Jerry Sander teaches from chapter 4 where the apostle Paul challenges us to walk worthy of our calling. Lowliness, gentleness, and longsuffering are the qualities Paul describes, as he makes a plea for unity among all believers.
Invited Into the Attitude of Christ
November 15, 2015 • Doug Sauder • Ephesians
Continuing our study in the Book of Ephesians, Pastor Doug Sauder teaches from chapter 4 about what it means to have our identity deeply rooted in a relationship with Jesus. We are challenged to live fully in that identity by putting away our old man and putting on our new man.
Invited Into the Character of Christ
November 22, 2015 • Doug Sauder • Ephesians 5, Hebrews 13, 1 John 1
Have you ever played a game of “Follow the Leader," where you must walk behind and imitate a designated leader? Continuing our “Invited In” series, this weekend Pastor Doug taught from Ephesians 5:1–21, where the apostle Paul calls believers to follow the Leader, God, as we walk in the love, light, and wisdom of Christ.
Invited Into the Mystery of Gods Love
November 29, 2015 • Alan Platt • Ephesians 5
Continuing our study in the Book of Ephesians, guest speaker Alan Platt teaches that the mystery of God's love is revealed in Christ and His relationship to the Church, which gives us the model for all other relationships. Love prompts us to give and the highest level of giving is to forgive.
Invited Into The Battle
December 6, 2015 • Doug Sauder • Ephesians 6, 2 Corinthians 10
This weekend, Pastor Doug wrapped up our "Invited In" series as he shared a message from Ephesians 6:10-24. Paul closed his letter to the Ephesians with a warning that we, as the Church, are in enemy territory. And as such, we must equip ourselves with spiritual armor—the only form of protection we have against the attacks of the enemy.
