Resources on Church Life

In True Awakening: Worship Through Consecration

by

We are too prone to engrave our trials in marble and write our blessings in sand. So write God’s blessings in marble so that you live in joyful worship of God every day.

In Profound Joy: Worship Through Praise

by

When we see greatness, we naturally will give voice to joyful praise. When we truly know God, our joy erupts in praise to God.

Ties That Bind

by

This week, we welcomed special guest Ron Zappia, Senior Pastor of Highpoint Church in the Chicago area as he taught from Ecclesiastes 4:9-12. We were not created to live in isolation and this passage shows us that a healthy church community stands alongside and lifts one another up through every season of life.

Real Faith

by

The difference between people with faith and those without is night and day; people of faith live with spiritual clarity about the future and encourage one another in spiritual community.

Real Change

by

No one believes in Jesus and continues to live the same old life. Any faith in Christ that does not change our practical life is a false faith.

Real Love

by

Church is not so much a place to go to as it is a family to which we belong. We do not gather together to honor God through our activities, we gather together to honor God through our love for Him and for His people.

Foundations

by

No follower of Jesus can be healthy in his or her walk with God without a healthy connection to the local church.

Give Truth

by

We must encourage and exhort one another every day so that each person in our church family finishes life with a good, believing heart.

Responding to God with a Joyful Noise

by

God is glorified in a church when the music unites hearts together under the truth of God and the Gospel.

Courageously Protecting the Church

by

Doctrine matters. What we believe about God changes how we relate to Him and how we live our lives. No church is healthy when it is a safe place for wolves to harm the flock without fear of being confronted.
