The Cove 2019
The Church and the Kingdom
We Believe - Great Truths of the Christian Faith • April 14, 2019 • Dr. Glen G. Scorgie
We continue our “We Believe” series this week by considering the closely-related doctrines of the church and the kingdom. Here our focus shifts from “I” to “we,” from personal salvation to broader social dynamics that are also part of the Good News.
We Believe - Great Truths of the Christian Faith • April 7, 2019 • Dr. Mark Strauss
The Bible tells the story of God’s plan to save his people through the life, death and resurrection of his son Jesus Christ. Today we look at the nature of this salvation: its motivation, means, appropriation and the metaphors used in Scripture to describe it.
The Person and Work of Christ
We Believe - Great Truths of the Christian Faith • March 24, 2019 • Dr. Mark Strauss
The Bible teaches that Jesus is fully human and fully divine. In the incarnation he became a human being in order to pay the penalty for our sins. Through His perfect life, sacrificial death on the cross and victorious resurrection from the dead, He accomplished our salvation.
God's Self Revelation
We Believe - Great Truths of the Christian Faith • March 10, 2019 • Dr. Mark Strauss
God has revealed himself in various ways, indirectly through His creation (general revelation) as well as directly (special revelation) through dreams, visions, prophecy, and especially through the written Scriptures.
God in Three Persons
We Believe - Great Truths of the Christian Faith • February 24, 2019 • Dr. Mark Strauss
Theology begins with God, the Creator and Sustainer of all things. Finding meaning and purpose in life starts with the realization that God exists and that He is the infinite, holy and good God, and that He desires to be in relationship with His people.
