Praying for our Neighborhoods

Posted by Colby Kinser on

I love the initiative of the Prayer Catalysts to challenge you to pray for your neighborhoods in February. The idea is simple - at least once in the month of February, you and your family walk through your neighborhood (or drive) and pray for your neighbors. If you know something about...

When God Moves

Posted by Colby Kinser on

When God moves, He rarely moves you to a place you can handle just fine on your own. When God moves, He is always asking you to trust Him. When God moves, He usually allows you to disobey. When God moves and we disobey, we always miss out. When God moves, He never has chosen you by...

The Core: Christian Living, Christ's Return, and Eternal Destiny

Posted by Colby Kinser on

Christian Living  We believe that God’s justifying grace must not be separated from His sanctifying power and purpose. God commands us to love Him supremely and others sacrificially, and to live out our faith with care for one another, compassion toward the poor and justice for the...

The Core: The Holy Spirit and the Church

Posted by Colby Kinser on

We believe that the Holy Spirit, in all that He does, glorifies the Lord Jesus Christ. He convicts the world of its guilt. He regenerates sinners, and in Him they are baptized into union with Christ and adopted as heirs in the family of God. He also indwells, illuminates, guides, equips and...

The Person of Jesus We believe Jesus Christ is God incarnate, fully God and fully man, one Person in two natures. Jesus - Israel's promised Messiah - was conceived through the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He lived a sinless life, was crucified under Pontius Pilate, arose bodily from...

The Core: Humanity

Posted by Colby Kinser on

    We believe that God created Adam and Eve in His image, but they sinned when tempted by Satan. In union with Adam, human beings are sinners by nature and by choice, alienated from God, and under His wrath. Only through God's saving work in Jesus Christ can we be rescued...

The Core: God

Posted by Colby Kinser on

We believe in one God, Creator of all things, holy, infinitely perfect, and eternally existing in a loving unity of three equally divine Persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Having limitless knowledge and sovereign power, God has graciously purposed from eternity to redeem...

I Resolve

Posted by Colby Kinser on

Let's start with this: I'm not one for New Year's Resolutions. But then add this: I'm not against those who like them. Use them, don't use them - if they work for you, great. If not, don't let that heap guilt on you. There's no biblical mandate to make and keep New Year's Resolutions...

Merry Christmas 2020! No, really ...

Posted by Colby Kinser on

I sometimes complain about 2020, but truth be told, I'm grateful for 2020. I'm not grateful for suffering, for being less connected with my family and church family, for the impact on our youth and children, or for the impact on businesses. And I'm not cheering on 2020 as judgment on sinful...
