Sermon Series: Vision and Provision

“Family”


The First Reading: Teach the Children


Psalm 127:3-4: Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD… Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one's youth.


Genesis 18:17-19: The LORD said, "Shall I hide from Abraham what I am about to do, seeing that Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him? For I have chosen him, that he may command his children and his household after him to keep the way of the LORD by doing righteousness and justice, so that the LORD may bring to Abraham what he has promised him."


Deuteronomy: 4-7: "Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one.  You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.  And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.


The Second Reading: The Covenant Family


Isaiah 56:6-7: "And the foreigners who join themselves to the LORD, to minister to him, to love the name of the LORD, and to be his servants, everyone who keeps the Sabbath and does not profane it, and holds fast my covenant-- these I will bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer


Ruth 1:16: But Ruth said, "Do not urge me to leave you or to return from following you. For where you go I will go, and where you lodge I will lodge. Your people shall be my people, and your God my God.


Luke 18:16-17: But Jesus called them to him, saying, "Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God. Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it."


Psalm 78:4  [We will] tell the coming generation the glorious deeds of the LORD, and his might, and the wonders that he has done.


The Third Reading: The Gospel of Jesus Christ is central to the supernatural family of faith.


Galatians 3:26-29: …for in Christ Jesus you are [the children] of God, through faith. For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you are Christ's, then you are Abraham's offspring, heirs according to promise.


John 1:12: But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name, 


1 John 3:1: See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are.

Our Core Values

We are committed to clear Biblical teaching and preaching..."All scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work" 2 Timothy 3:16-17


We are committed to living in community "....so that they may be one as we are one." John 17:11 "All the believers were together and had every thing in common...meet together ... broke bread and ate together in their homes with glad and sincere hearts, praising God..." Acts 2:43-47


Purposeful care for our community… "Only, they asked to remember the poor, the very thing I was eager to do." Galatians 2:10


Our Beliefs

As a church in the Evangelical Presbyterian Church, we hold to the “Seven Essentials of the Faith” : We believe in one God, existing in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.   Jesus Christ, the living Word, became flesh through His miraculous conception by the Holy Spirit and His virgin birth.   The Holy Spirit has come to glorify Christ and to apply the saving work of Christ to our hearts.   Being estranged from God and condemned by our sinfulness, our salvation is wholly dependent upon the work of God’s free grace.   The true Church is composed of all persons who through saving faith in Jesus Christ and the sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit are united together in the body of Christ.   Jesus Christ will come again to the earth personally, visibly, and bodily—to judge the living and the dead, and to consummate history and the eternal plan of God.  The Lord Jesus Christ commands all believers to proclaim the gospel throughout the world and to make disciples of all nations. All are welcome to join us for worship, whether they affirm these seven essentials or not.
