The Birth of the Church

The great story reached yet another watershed moment on the Day of Pentecost. The outpouring of God’s Holy Spirit and the birth of the church were the fulfillment of ancient prophecies and the beginning of something brand new. The book of the Acts of the Apostles records not only the birth of the church but how it spread like wildfire. The message is shared by Conni Brown from our Lay Preaching Team.

The Cross and Resurrection of Christ

In Jesus, we find both God’s new beginning and his fulfillment of his promises. In him, we’ve encountered a teacher who teaches with true authority. We’ve also encountered the one we rejected and crucified. Now we hear the message that he’s been raised from the dead and lives eternally. The questions for us are, “Can we hear this message and let it be the foundation for our life, here and now? Or is everything we do all in vain in the end?” It’s Easter, and it’s time for a conversation with our inner skeptic.
