Their buildings might be closed, but their churches were still open and living out their mission.
Phil Ware introduces a series of weekly messages to help us deal with the challenges of the new world we are called to minister in today, focusing on the biblical foundation for answers to these challenges.
Jesus said this was the right thing for him to do!
James Nored and Phil Ware remind us of an important reason to be baptized: not only was Jesus baptized, he also said it was the right thing to do and called on all his disciples to be baptized and baptizers.
God didn't come to our world as a heavenly tourist with special arrangements to keep him safe and to give him special treatment in his journey through mortality with all its grit and danger.
James Nored and Phil Ware remind us to push past the glittering lights of Christmas and see that God came to be one of us in the gritty and dangerous birth of Jesus of Nazareth to a virgin named Mary and her faithful to Torah husband to be, Joseph the car
Let's awaken our hearts to the greatness of God, the assured hope we have in our future with Jesus, and our mission to take Jesus' grace to the world.
Phil Ware and Demetrius Collins invite us to worship God and remind each other of those who are lost, left out, and left behind that need to be at Jesus' table of grace and how we are called to reach the lost as our mission.
Phil Ware reminds us that God can make us better after we have been broken and use us to do his work in the Kingdom because of two things: forgiveness we receive in Jesus through baptism and the power of the Holy Spirit.
Our message points us to 2 Corinthians 5:17 and Paul's promise that if we are in Christ, we are a new creation!
Phil Ware and Demetrius Collins invite us to worship God and celebrate the work of the Holy Spirit as we are transformed to be more like our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ as we trust in God to give us a new fresh start in life because of Jesus!
God has you in a great position to see his deliverance and make your life an enduring testimony when you face trials with endurance and faithfulness.
James Nored and Phil Ware remind us that God's great stories of deliverance, like the Exodus with Moses leading God's people to victory over Egypt and Pharaoh, are reminders of Jesus' greater deliverance and God's faithfulness.
