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.

The Joy of Community

by

Our local church is a spiritual family to whom we belong and are committed to love, serve, encourage, strengthen and sharpen for the glory of God. It’s a community that derives life from a mutual love for and a shared experience with Jesus.

Proclaiming the Gospel, Part 2

Significance in our lives flows from working for our Lord Jesus with faith and zeal. A good life is a life invested zealously in the mission of Christ: proclaiming His Gospel and strengthening His church for discipleship.

Proclaiming The Gospel, Part 1

Significance in our lives flows from serving our Lord Jesus with faith and zeal. While Jesus does not call every one of His disciples to change their vocation in life, He does call every one of His disciples to change their mission for life.

Dads in the Church

by

There is no moment in our lives when we don’t need fresh manna taught from the Word of God to fill our souls, especially in the context of the local church. In this message from Titus 2:1-10, Pastor Ritch exhorts men of every age to stay engaged and connected into the work of the local church and leading their homes and communities to walk in accordance with the Scripture.

Confronting Our Own Selfishness, Part 2

by

Self-centeredness always presses the church to be about disputable matters. God-centeredness always yields disputable matters over to God and humbly pursues the spiritual health of others. When we think about our love for one another in God’s future plan, we gain strength and motivation for loving one another in God’s present plan.

The Shepherd’s Authority

by

In this message from Deuteronomy 31, Dr. Daniel Bennett (Senior Pastor of Bethany Community Church in Washington, Illinois) teaches about the limited, temporary and fragile nature of the authority given to church shepherds, and the God-honoring example Moses offers for church leaders today.

Confronting Our Own Selfishness, Part 1

by

Our radical worship of God leads us to confront our own selfishness. Self-centeredness always presses the church to be about disputable matters, while God-centeredness always yields disputable matters over to God and humbly pursues the spiritual health of others.

Maintaining Unity, Part 3

by

Our devotion to God leads us to maintain unity. We must go out of our way to welcome one another in love without letting disputable matters disrupt the health of the church.
