Every Christian is called to a ministry of encouraging and helping others, especially those in the household of faith.

NT012 "Jesus is Lord!" The Book of Colossians

Pastor John Honold

No other book of the New Testament sets forth more fully or defends the universal Lordship of Jesus Christ more fully. Paul shares Christ's Lordship in three ways: (1) Jesus Christ is Lord over all Creation; (2) Jesus is preeminent in the Church as its Creator and Savior; (3) Jesus is Supreme in Salvation. "Jesus is Lord" is the church's earliest confession. Reinforce your understanding of His Lordship in our eight-week study of Colossians.

Administrative Fee: $35.00
Wednesdays, 12—1 pm 
January 9 - February 27, 2019

OT006 Joshua: Advancing into God’s Promises

Pastor Ty Tamasaka

Why should we read the book of Joshua today in the twenty-first century? Joshua is an ancient book of war, conquest, and barbaric slaughter. Aren’t we more civilized and peaceful than that? The book of Joshua has amazing applications for today. There’s much more to the Christian life than simply being saved. In John 10:10, Jesus speaks of an “abundant life.” While Christians have been freed from the grip of sin, many have yet to enter into God’s promises. We will explore the book of Joshua and gain insight into entering God’s promises with a strong emphasis on personal application. Recommended Reading: Glory Days: Trusting the God who Fights for You, Max Lucado.
