Christ-Centered Leadership

May 3, 2020 • Pastor Ben Cross

This message, as we continue in Philippians we’ll be looking at how to lead with Christ-centered leadership. When we talk about leadership, too often people don’t see themselves as leaders, but the reality is that we are all responsible to lead ourselves. You might be responsible for leadership at work, and leadership also matters at home and in your social circles. In this message, we’ll see several examples of leaders who honored God well. We’ll see several leadership lessons that apply, no matter where you lead. We’ll also see the tremendous impact that one person can have when they choose to lead in a way that honors God. Read Philippians 2:19-30 for this sermon.

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.
