Christ-Centered Confidence

May 17, 2020 • Pastor Ben Cross

This message, we’ll be continuing in our study of Philippians. As we start Chapter 3, it’s all about how our confidence must be anchored in Jesus. Paul describes all the privileges and advantages he had in life, and how even if you take those all away, he can still rejoice in Jesus. It’s certainly a timely passage for right now, as we are learning to live without so many things we're used to. And when only the essential things remain, it allows us to see where we truly place our hope and our confidence. We’ve also seen many people place their trust in Jesus in these last few weeks, and when all that is normal is pulled away, we can so clearly see the importance of where we put our confidence and our trust. Read Philippians 3:1-9 for this message.

Christ-Centered Friendships

Philippians 4:10-23 • June 21, 2020 • Pastor Ben Cross

This sermon, our message from Philippians will be about Christ-centered friendship. Especially now more than ever right now, friendships and relationships are something we can’t take for granted. In times of difficulty, friends can make all the difference. We see that in Paul’s life throughout the many trials he experienced. We’ll see in Philippians that Paul's friendships were a huge part of his ability to thrive in trials and were core to his effectiveness in ministry. Read Philippians 4:10-23 for this message

Christ-Centered Peace

This message we’ll continue in our study of Philippians. The big idea of this whole book is Paul encouraging us to stand firm, even when things around us are uncertain. What a perfect book for us to be studying in 2020! We’re starting into Chapter 4 of Philippians this sermon, in which we learn that as Christians we have everything we need to stand firm in an uncertain world because of knowing Christ and being found in Him.

Christ-Centered Perseverance

May 31, 2020 • Pastor Ben Cross

This sermon in Philippians is all about perseverance. It’s amazing how the Bible is so timeless and relevant to life today, in ways we couldn’t have even pictured when we planned this series on Philippians. As we finish chapter 3 of Philippians, Paul reminds us to follow his example. He reminds us that we are citizens of heaven, and we have a place with God beyond this life. It’s living with this perspective that allows us to persevere with our eyes fixed on God….no matter what comes our way. Read Philippians 3:15-4:1 to be ready for this message.
