The Real Church
November 20, 2016 - Phil Schaefer
2 Corinthians 4: 5-15
Most of us have our own ideas and experiences on what the church looks like.

Listen to the full sermon to hear how the church, with all its diversity and struggles, is gathered together by Jesus.

The Church Is the Gathering for Giving
November 06, 2016 - Phil Schaefer

The Supreme Importance of the Personal Plural 'You'
October 23, 2016 - Phil Schaefer
1 Corinthians 12:12
In the English New Testatment, we often read the word 'you' in its singular form, but in the older Greek, it is much more plain to see that the word 'you' is usually plural. When the Apostle Paul uses the word 'you,' he is generally speaking to the church as a whole. In this sermon, Pastor Phil helps us see the large implications this has on our lives and our faith.

In part one of the new sermon series, The Church: The Centerpiece of All Creation, Pastor Phil teaches on how we, as God's people in his global church through Jesus Christ, are the centerpiece of all creation. Listen to the full sermon to hear how this applies to our everyday lives.
