Sermon Series: Blueprint for the Church

What is the Blueprint for the Church? Jesus Christ established the church and in the Scriptures we are told what the church of Christ is to be. In this 2016 Fall series we are going examine the blueprint for the church by looking into the different aspects what it means to be the community of faith. We will see the value, nature and purposes of the church and how it calls us as God's children to be the faithful people of God.

Who’s Church is it anyway?

The Solid Church is Committed to Sound Doctrine

A solid church is one that does the work that Christ has called it to do, and to live in this world as salt and light. But how do we begin to do this? It starts from a commitment to a set of beliefs from which everything else flows. Staying on the path that God has...

The Solid Church Understands the Gospel

  What is the Gospel?  Depending upon who you ask, you might get a wide variety of answers.  For many Christians, they have been transformed by the Gospel but have trouble articulating what it is.  For the Church to be solid it is vital that we understand the...

The Solid Church is Genuinely Converted

It is not uncommon to hear of people who have claimed to be Christians, suddenly declare that they no longer believe in Christ.  Is it because they were true Christians, was their so-called faith fabricated or something in between?  A genuine conversion to Christ is...

The Solid Church Promotes Spiritual Growth

Highlighting the Early Church-Fellowship, Ordinances, Prayer
