Finish Strong

Persevering In The Gospel Race

It was only a few short decades since the start of the early church and, already, the Apostle Paul could sense opposition to the Gospel message and some new Christians who had already quit the race. In a letter to His young protégée, the Apostle urges Timothy to stand guard, stay strong and persevere in  the Gospel message and ministry. With so many distractions around the Christian today, this message remains relevant in its charge to finish strong.

This is Life Celebration

Baptism is a very special, once-in-a-lifetime experience, where a Christian makes a public profession of faith in Jesus Christ. Baptism is in obedience to Jesus' command to "be baptized in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit" (Matthew 28:18-20) and communicates our surrender to Him as Lord

of our life.

September 19, we are celebrating this life change together, as one body!

NOT OF THIS WORLD

Living as First Kingdom People in a Second Kingdom Place

Christians are resident aliens—travelers passing through this world, but never rooted in this world. As such, God’s people need to know how to live as “first Kingdom” citizens in a “second kingdom” place.  Discover your exilic identity and how to navigate what’s true not by looking at politics, culture, or media, but by looking through the lens of God’s Word. Then, resolve to live as ambassadors of God’s coming Kingdom, bringing hope to a broken world.

KING JESUS

The Messiah in the Gospel of Mark

Four writers tell the good news about Jesus. Mark, the shortest gospel, reveals Jesus as the servant-king who came to suffer and die, but rise triumphantly over the grave. The Gospel of Mark is a call to action—for all people to understand Jesus’ identity and surrender to his royal authority over their lives.
