Expositional & Theological Preaching

We Have Nothing Interesting to Say

October 30, 2016 • Brian Sauvé

Pastor Brian continues in our 8-Part series, "Cantus Firmus," an in-depth look at the theological and practical distinctives that drive everything we do here at Refuge. This week, we look at the way we preach. Yes, this is a topical sermon on why we don't generally preach topical sermons. Here at Refuge, we believe that the very best thing we can do with our time together is to pick a book of the Bible, open it up together each Sunday, and preach it from one side to the other. And not just that, but preach it in such a way as to make the main point of the text—what the author meant to say to the people he meant to say it to—the main point of the sermon. Listen to find out why!

Plurality & Multiplication in Leadership

Moses Has Left the Building • December 11, 2016 • Brian Sauvé

In this sermon, Pastor Brian continues our 8-week series, "Cantus Firmus," an in-depth look at the theological and practical distinctives of Refuge. This week, we looked at the government of Refuge Church, particularly why we are led by a plurality of elders rather than a single pastor with absolute authority. Long story short, because Brian's not glowing. Listen in and you'll get what we mean!

The Holy Spirit

The Oil in Our Lamps • December 4, 2016 • Brian Sauvé

In this sermon, Pastor Brian continues our 8-week series, "Cantus Firmus," an in-depth look at the theological and practical distinctives of Refuge. This week, we looked at our sixth theological distinction, that we are a Continuationist Church. This means that we believe the Holy Spirit is still giving all of the gifts described in the New Testament Scriptures. Beyond that, we looked at the absolutely indispensable ministry of the Holy Spirit in both saving and sanctifying all Christians.

Complementarianism

Together for Glory • November 27, 2016 • Brian Sauvé

In this sermon, Pastor Brian continues our 8-week series, "Cantus Firmus," an in-depth look at the theological and practical distinctives of Refuge. This week, we saw that God created men and women to put his glory on display in creation as masculinity and femininity come together into a living, Gospel parable.
