Church life [re]defined

Church Life: Identity

I PETER 2:4-10

Abraham Cremens

March 8, 2020


We shape our identity in a variety of ways within everyday life, and it often is based on what we do. That is not the way that God defines us, though. God shapes our identity based on what he has done for us in Jesus Christ. He made his people what they are, and our identity is completely wrapped up in Christ’s work. As a church family, then, let’s clarify who we are by looking again at the person and work of Jesus Christ.

Church Life: Discipline

Hebrews 12:5-11

Church discipline is a critical part of Church life – functioning as the body of believers. Discipline, in general, is to create habits and form values. Church discipline aims at sharing in God’s holiness. We do that through training and correcting: training for godliness and holding one another accountable in love.

Church Life: Giving

2 Corinthians 9:1-15

Giving generously is one of the hallmarks of Christ's followers. Paul writes to the church in Corinth and praises them for their giving, thereby outlining some principles to guide our giving: geneously, intentionally, with priority and proportion.

Church Life: Purpose

Colossians 1:24-29

Abraham Cremeens

March 29, 2020


Christ gave his church her purpose and mission. That purpose is anchored in him and flows from him as he does his work in and through his people. Your purpose starts with the truth of Christ in you which results in Christ from you in proclamation. The outcome is God’s glory as Christ is visible among you through Christ-like maturity.
