Part 6 | Three Metaphors, Two Kinds of Teachers

The First of Many

July 19, 2020 • Pastor Marty • 2 Tim. 2:14-21

Jesus was very aware of wolves in sheep's clothing entering His flock. In our passage this Sunday, we will see that Paul too is very concerned about some people in the churches he had planted who are causing division, encouraging quarrels, and teaching lies. Their impact spreads like a poison. It's not a benign concern, it's dangerous to the faith of some. What do you do about false teachers, misguided opinion leaders or ungodly influencers that are in the Church, but are not authentically, representing God and His Word?

Part 1 | No to Fear | Yes to Power, Love, and Self Control

The First of Many • June 14, 2020 • Pastor Travis

Paul is at the end of his earthly ministry and is in prison. He has Luke by his side to help write his final encouragements to the church. One such letter is sent to his beloved Timothy, whom he has raised up to know Christ. He charges Timothy, and us, to stand up boldly for Christ. Soo not be governed by fear but instead be filled by the power, love, and self-control of the spirit of God. Join us this Sunday as we begin our series on 2 Timothy.

Part 2 | Our Holy Calling

The First of Many • June 21, 2020 • Pastor Travis

Jesus has defeated the grave in order to give you life. So, do not be ashamed but instead walk boldly in Christ. The covenant of grace provides us with the purpose and grace to share the gospel message with the lost and broken world. Therefore, we can be agents of reconciliation bringing hope to the world by sharing the gospel of Christ with one another as we grow in Him. Join us this Sunday as we focus on 2 Timothy 1:8-11 and continue in our series 2 Timothy, The First of Many.

Part 3 | I Am Not Ashamed

The First of Many • June 28, 2020 • Pastor Marty

Paul writes about "being ashamed" several times in his letter to Timothy. The sense of being ashamed is a powerful emotion that affects our actions and reactions. Why does Paul bring this subject up for Timothy and indirectly to us? The temptation to back away from identifying with Jesus Christ and the message of Good News has been a concern since the beginning of the Church. Listen Sunday as Marty attempts to show how Paul encourages Timothy and us to be Confidently Faithful (the opposite of Ashamed).
