Lost & Found #6 'Presence'
Creating a Christian Presence in our Community • February 14, 2016 • R. Chip Denief
1st Century Christians understood their call to 'Go' and make disciples for Christ. In order to successfully accomplish this task the Christians did not retreat from culture, instead, they maintained an active presence within their community. Likewise, Christians today must be present in their community in order to have any opportunity to impact others with the Gospel.
Lost & Found #4 'Power'
God's Power shown in the Church • January 31, 2016 • R. Chip Denief
Only a few years into the history of the Christian faith the early Christians faced a serious issue within the Church requiring immediate disciplinary action from the Apostles. This action, extended through the words of the Apostle Peter, was an exercise of God's authority. Drastic as it may seem to the modern believer, this event propelled the Church with growth which is also a reminder to properly exercise discipline in the Church today.
Lost & Found #3 'Pure'
The Necessity of Purity • January 17, 2016 • R. Chip Denief
Having the 1st Century model as the ideal model for the Church today, there is a great urgency for Purity to be preserved in the Church. Purity in Doctrine, Personal Life, Household, Community and Church is essential in honoring God.
Lost & Found #1 'Value of the Lost'
Valuing others as God values them • January 3, 2016 • R. Chip Denief
When a person loses something of great value, the do everything within their abilities & resources to find or 'redeem' that which is lost. God values mankind over all creation and has expressed His value for mankind by purchasing us with the blood of His Son, Jesus.
