God is Eternal

In our current sermon series we are exploring the attributes of God. This Sunday we will consider that God is eternal. Repeatedly scripture tells us that God is from ‘everlasting to everlasting’ and without beginning or end. He exists now, has always existed and will continue to exist forever. But why is that significant for our faith and how do we take that and live it out in our lives.

Join us this Sunday as we consider these things. Our focal passage of scripture will be from Psalm 90.1-2. Let me encourage you to read this passage in context, pray through it and ask God to prepare your heart for worship Sunday. Then join us for worship as we consider that God is eternal.

Evening of Worship

Abide in Us

ABIDE IN US: AN EVENING OF WORSHIP
Saturday, March 18, 6:30 pm

As His earthly ministry came to an end, Jesus said to His disciples, “Do not let your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me. I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may be with you forever. You know Him because He abides with you and will be in you.

“He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you. Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”

Join us on March 18 for a special evening of scripture, songs, and baptism as we worship the Spirit of Truth, the Helper, the Comforter…God with us and in us, giving us His peace and His power.

Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
—Romans 15:13

One God

Over the course of the last couple of months we have been looking at the various components of our “Great Faith.” We concluded that series last week and will transition into a new sermon series this week. In our next sermon series, God Is…, we will look at the various attributes of God and what we can know about Him to be true and right. We won’t cover all of His attributes but we will cover several that I think are significant.

This week we will look at the reality that God is One. He is the one true God and there is no other like Him. He is one God who exists in the three persons, Father, Son, Holy Spirit. And He is the only one who can fulfill the deepest longings of our heart. All other gods are false gods, all other ways to heaven are false ways…He is THE way and the only way because He is the one true and only God.

Join us this Sunday as we begin this look our great God!
