Making Jesus Known
Who is Grace Church?
Suffering and Mission
August 21, 2022 • Dave Becker • Colossians 1:24–29
Colossians 1:24-29 // The riches of Christ in the gospel enable the church to live out Kingdom-multiplying mission through proclaiming the message of the gospel to all people and suffering for sake of the gospel, and for those who have yet to hear.
September 12, 2021 • Drake Osborn • Acts 13:1–3, Acts 14
Acts 13:1-3, 14:1-28 // God is in the business of calling the church to "Antioch Moments" where his Spirit moves to empower the mission of the gospel. This mission is marked by Bold Proclamation in the Midst of Opposition, Contextualization in the Midst of Cultural Diversity, and Courageous Realism in the face of Suffering and Tribulation.
September 5, 2021 • Drake Osborn • 1 Corinthians 12:12–26
1 Corinthians 12:12-26 // Our second value is Christ-Centered Community. The community of the church is a body because of Christ's work in uniting us in our diversity. We cannot "unbody" ourselves, no matter how much we feel like we don't belong, and we cannot "unbody" anyone else, no matter how much we feel like they don't belong.
Biblical, Historic Christianity
August 29, 2021 • Drake Osborn • 2 Timothy 1:3–14
2 Timothy 1:3-14 // As a church committed to making Jesus known, we value Biblical, Historic, Christianity. In 2 Timothy 1:3-14, we learn that we are not the first ones to do this, we didn't make any of it up, and it's more about whom we believe that what we believe.
