When it comes to the mission of the church to advance the gospel, there have been countless methodologies prescribed throughout church history. As helpful as those may be, the mission of the church is impossible without the Holy Spirit. Listen and hear how the Holy Spirit empowers us to treasure Jesus and call others to treasure him as well.
The Holy Spirit's Role in Treasuring Jesus and Mission
2 Corinthians 3:7-4:7

Sent on Mission to the World
November 14, 2020 • Tim Cain
Why are we here? What is the ultimate purpose of our lives? When Jesus came to earth 2000 years ago he came with a clear purpose. Over and over in the book of John he talks about not doing his own will but the will of the one who “sent him.” When Jesus found himself at a crossroads he would always go back to the will of the one who sent him to make his decision. And then in John 20:21 Jesus said to his disciples “As the Father sent me, even so I am sending you.” In this sermon we will discuss what it means for us to be sent by Jesus to finish the work that he began. We will also talk about some of the obstacles to living this sort of way and what Jesus has given us to help us overcome those obstacles.
The Church; A Family Formed by the Gospel
November 7, 2020 • Tim Cain
This message is about a family that has existed for all eternity and a Son who was loved so perfectly by his Father that he gave his life so that he might share that love with sinners and see them adopted into his family. Now I know that not everyone has good associations with family, but in this message we will talk about how God’s family is a place where we can find healing from the wounds our nuclear families may have left us. We will also talk about what a privilege it is to be a part of the family of God and why it is so important that we prioritize it in our lives.
