Sermons on Ephesians
What is our unity centred around? And what is our goal as a unified people? In the book of Ephesians, we see that Christ unites us as one new multiethnic family; and gives us gifts to build up the body so we can maintain and attain unity in the faith. In this sermon we explore what this looks like in Paul’s day and in our day as Christians in 2022.
Christianity claims to be based on a historical fact – the bodily resurrection of Jesus. But how does His resurrection practically help Christians today? The Apostle Paul answers that question for us. He explains what it means to be “risen with Christ” and the results of such an experience. In his explanation, we see why the resurrection is so vital and necessary and how it can help us today.
How is the church supposed to operate day to day? What part does the congregation play and what part do the pastors and deacons play? We begin to answer these questions as we look at the early church and the clear principles from God’s Word the day to day working of the church. The answers will probably not be what you expected.
The Bible is very clear when it tells us that Christians should grow and become more like Christ. But how exactly are they to do that and what part does the local church play in that growth. That is what we will consider as we look at the 11th Mark of a Healthy Church.
Once again a spotlight has been placed on the concepts of “race” and “racism”. These topics and the people effected by them are in the news once again, but what does the Bible have to say about such things? The answer: more than you might think. Come see what God says about these issues and ideas that have plagued mankind through the centuries.
Many people view Evangelical churches as being divided because there seem to be so many denominations. Yet, the Bible talks about true Christian unity in a different way. According to the Bible’s teaching on Christian unity, members of several different denominations can all be unified in Christ. How can this be since they go to different churches? The Apostle Paul gives us the answer, but it contains elements we would never expect.
