Lies Christians Believe - April 3rd - 24th
Paul, writing to Timothy said, “For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine … They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths” (2 Timothy 4:3a,4). This has probably occurred in every generation to one degree or another. Our generation is no exception. In fact, it might very well be the poster child for this phenomenon.
In this sermon series we will take a look at four “myths” that Christians tend to believe. We will use sound biblical foundations to debunk these lies and will celebrate what Jesus really had to say about them:
April 3rd – God Wants Me to be Happy
April 10th – God Wants Me to be Spiritual, but Not Religious (i.e., Church is Optional)
April 17th – God Must be Punishing Me for Something I Did (or Didn’t Do)
April 24th – God and Science Don’t Mix
Paul concluded by encouraging Timothy: “But you, keep your head in all situations (stay close to Jesus), endure hardship (be courageous about the truth), do the work of an evangelist (share Jesus with everyone through love), discharge all the duties of your ministry (stay faithful to your calling)” (2 Timothy 4:5). We will encourage each other to do the same! To learn more about worship and service on Sunday, click here.
Past Sermon Series
The Healing Church - February 21st - March 27th
The Bible uses the metaphor of a body in describing the church (Colossians 1:18), and Paul tells us to “Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep” (Romans 12:15). When our physical bodies ache and are broken, the whole body—every member—cries out for healing. This should also be true of the church. On February 21st, we begin a series of sermons entitled, The Healing Church. We will take a look at four of Jesus’ healing miracles, one each week. As we move through these powerful stories we will discover the characteristics of the “healing church.” Click here to begin this series.
I Love My Church - January 24th - February 14th
The Church was created by God for the good of the world. God’s plan is to save the world and the church was created to carry out that plan. That’s why the Scripture describes the church as “the body of Christ” (1 Cor. 12:27). We are the hands and feet and mouth and eyes and ears of Jesus Christ. As the body of Jesus, we know that God loves his church. In this sermon series we reflected on all the reasons WE love our church. We will examine the various ways our church has an impact on our growing faith, our community, our world, and our personal lives. At FBCR we know that we love our church – that usually goes without saying. But, every once in a while it’s healthy to say it – to reflect on all the reasons we love our church, and to rejoice in the way God has created us and fashioned us for HIS purposes!
