His Body: Gifts

This morning, we’re going to continue our message series where we take a look at an analogy given to us by the Apostle Paul in how the church (us) is the body of Christ. In it’s most simplistic form, the concept of the body of Christ is: all believers working together in unity as each one performs their specific role all under the direction of Christ (the head of the body) to be Christ’s physical presence here on Earth. It’s…

Today, You Will Be With Me In Paradise

This evening, we’re going to take a look at an interesting event that occurred in the midst of the painful and sorrowful account of Christ’s death. Luke 23:32-43 32 Two other men, both criminals, were also led out with him to be executed. 33 When they came to the place called the Skull, they crucified him there, along with the criminals—one on his right, the other on his left. 34 Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what…

His Body: Humility

This morning, we’re going to launch a new message series where we take a look at an analogy given to us by the Apostle Paul in how the church (us) is the body of Christ. In it’s most simplistic form, the concept of the body of Christ is: all believers working together in unity as each one performs their specific role all under the direction of Christ (the head of the body) to be Christ’s physical presence here on Earth.…

Sent Out! – Stitts Farewell Service

This morning is a bittersweet time.  On one hand, we get to honor and celebrate the Stitt family for their years of hard work and commitment to New Hope and to give thanks for the fruits of their labor and Godly leadership. On the other hand, there is a sense of finality and grief as we share together the last day of their service here at New Hope and say our good-byes. This morning, I felt that God wanted to also reveal…

Bringing God’s Word to Pass: Endurance

As we continue our series, we’re going to take a look at the next aspect in bringing God’s word to pass in our lives – endurance! We’ve looked at God’s word itself and what faith is, but this week, we’re going to dig in as we find that just having faith that God is able in itself is insufficient, but that rather faith coupled with and revealed by our works is able to bring God’s word to pass in our…

Bringing God’s Word to Pass: Faith

As we continue our series, we’re going to take a look at the second thing that is required to bring God’s word to pass in our lives.  The first, of course, was to understand His word itself.  This morning, we’re going to take a look at the second, which is faith. Hebrews 11 1 Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. 2 This is what the ancients were commended…

Bringing God’s Word to Pass: God’s Word

Starting a series on bringing God’s word to pass in our lives. To start, we’re going to take a look at His word itself.  His word is revealed to us primarily in two forms: His written word and His spoken/prophetic word. We frequently take for granted this collection of books that we call the Bible.  We can easily treat it like any other book or novel and miss out on the life-transforming reality and life itself that is contained within…

2012 Vision: Commissioned

This morning in preparation for our annual business meeting, I wanted to share with you all the vision that I believe that God has given me for New Hope during 2012. As indicated by our current ministries and recent personal spiritual health assessments, we find that we have been very successful as a church in growing in knowledge and understanding in Him as believers, which is critically important and something to celebrate that we have been successful here.  However, we…
