We exist to help people know God. Therefore, as a church, we will strive to continually help people take the next step in their relationship with God. Therefore, every member is challenged to constantly and prayerfully evaluate their relationship with God.
Core Value #7: We must reach the Lost
September 27, 2020 • Pastor Seth Amerine
This week we close out our series on Rocklane’s core values with our 7th and final core value: We must reach the lost. We are going to be looking at Romans 12:2 and how a renewed mind – thinking in new ways will help us do this. Hope to see you Sunday!
Core Value #6: Every Christian is a Minister
September 20, 2020 • Pastor Seth Amerine
This week we examine Core Value #6: Everything Christian is a Minister. Take some time and look up the meaning of the word minister. Why has our culture and churches starts to see minister as a select group of people rather than every single Christian? Why is this dangerous to the Cause?
Core Value #5: The Youth are the Heartbeat of the Church
September 13, 2020 • Pastor Seth Amerine
This week we examine our 5th core value at Rocklane: The Youth are the Heartbeat of the Church. Consider Jesus stark warning in Matthew 9:42. According to the Barna Group 64% of 18-29-year-olds who were raised in the church left the faith in 2019. Why is this? What does the church do to feed this and what can the church do to battle this?
Core Value#3: The Church is the Unified Family and Body of Christ
August 30, 2020 • Adam Haganman
This week we take a look at Core Value # 3: The Church is the United Family of the body of Christ! We will take some time to unpack the idea of unity and what things help keep us united. Then we will take a look at our responsibilities in maintaining it.
Core Value#2: the Bible is our governing source of absolute truth
August 23, 2020 • Pastor Seth Amerine
This week we look at our second core value: The Bible is our governing source of absolute truth. This Sunday we talk about the profound experience of hearing God speak directly to us through the Bible and how essential this is to our church! Texts of interest: Isaiah 40:8, 2 Timothy 3:16, Hebrews 4:12, Isaiah 55:10-11.
Core Value #1: Jesus Christ is the only way to God and the Head of the Church
August 16, 2020 • Pastor Seth Amerine
This week we look at the first Core Value of Rocklane Christian Church that Jesus Christ is the only way to God and the Head of the church. These core values are designed to undergird our effort to accomplish our mission to help people to know God. Our primary texts will be John 14:6 and Colossians 1:18. Hope you will join us online or in service this Sunday!
We exist to help people know God.
