The Logos of Life
May 21, 2017 - Phil Schaefer
1 John 1:1-4; Revelation 19:12-13; Colossians 1:15-19
Pastor Phil continues our 1st John series this week with a sermon titled The Logos of Life. 1st John - like a number of other epistles - was written to counter certain false teachings that were unsettling and leading believers astray. The particular heresy was eventually known as Gnosticism. In 1 John 1:1-4 John sets a central diamond in place. What is the central diamond? The Word of Life.

A Kingdom of Priests - Part 2
May 07, 2017 - Phil Schaefer
Ex 19:6, I Peter 2:1-9, Revelation 5:1-10, Ephesians 2:1-10
This week Mike Acock continues with part 2 of A Kingdom of Priests in our Increasing Our Capacity sermon series. What might we discover and develop in realms of ministry if we see ourselves as priests in Christ’s world? We are a Kingdom of Priests Marked by Love. How is this possible? Through forgiveness and the very life of God coursing through our being. Priests choose to see goodness, truth, beauty and life in spite of the evil, lies, decay and death. Our future is calling us forward much more than our past will push us forward. When you start living out resurrection life, your life does not shrink back but it is bursting forth with life and growth and love and compassion. We are called to release the life of God flowing through us, full of love and compassion on a hurting world of fellow human beings. Receiving more people and reaching more nations is not simply a project for us to do – it is an expression of the life of God in a Kingdom of Priests and that Kingdom of Priests fully participating with that life.
