We live in an age where division over disagreements can be seen everywhere you look. In a culture where unity is cheap, superficial and fragile the Bible tells us that the church is supposed to be different. This sermon will address why the unity of the church is far more important to the witness of the Gospel than what candidate wins the election. We will also talk about how Christians should respond if the candidate they vote for doesn’t win. In an age of division the church has been given an amazing opportunity to show off the power of the Gospel by living out our identity as a family even if we don’t agree about everything.

The Holy Spirit's Role in Treasuring Jesus and Mission
November 21, 2020 • Wes Van Fleet
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.
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.
