EKKLESIA: REDEFINING THE CHURCH
Pastor Sean Morris from Melbourne, Australia delivered this powerful prophetic message last weekend: Ekklesia: Redefining the Church.
 
The Lord Jesus did not send His church into the culture wars of time and history to lose. He sent the Church to advance the Kingdom of God into every area of life until the will of God is done on earth as it is in heaven. With the failure of the modern methodology for "doing church" the time to return to the biblical model has come!

    The mother of all sins is man trying to be God. The manifestation of the mother of all sins is man defining good and evil independent of God.

    Every Christian knows that ALL sins are bad. And that SOME sins are worse than others. But is there ONE sin that is worst of all? Is there a "mother" of all sins that gives birth to all the rest? The answer is "Yes".

    As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. - Proverbs 23:7
     
    Worldviews are composed of the ideas people hold that determine how they think and what they do. And those ideas have consequences!
     
    In this week's message, Pastor Ray will take an eye-opening look at what's really at stake in the 'war of the worldviews' and what happens in history when the Christian Church fails to win on the battlefield of ideas. It's a bigger deal than you may realize.

    In Matthew 24, Jesus said the primary indicator of His imminent return was "deception!"
     
    In our confused and chaotic world, masses are being misled. Do we know how to discern between the secular and spiritual? This is the clash of the worldviews in which we find ourselves

    Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
    2 Corinthians 5:17 (KJV)
    Our churches today are filled with people who are spiritually "stuck". All because no one ever told them that being saved is not an end, it is a new beginning; a new way of "beholding" or "seeing" all things new through the lens of a biblical worldview. We hope you can be with us this weekend as we continue with our life-changing study of "The War of the Worldviews."

    God's people cannot hope to win the culture wars without a biblical worldview. The problem is that less than 1 in 5 Christians in America have a biblical worldview! (Barna Research Group)
     
    We hope you can be with us as we launch out into the New Year with a comprehensive study of this most important, yet neglected subjects, and one that must be addressed.

    Pastor Ray will conclude our year-long, verse-by- verse study of the Sermon of the Mount this weekend with a message from the last 2 verses of Matthew 7, which record the effect Jesus' teaching haed upon His hearers...
     
    And so it was, when Jesus had ended these sayings, that the people were  
    astonished at His teaching, for He taught them 
    as one having authority, and not as the scribes. 
    Matthew 7:28-29  NKJV
     
    We hope you can be with us for this powerful reminder that Jesus the Teacher is, above all, Jesus the LORD.

    The Lord Jesus Christ concludes His magnificent Sermon the Mount with a most serious warning: Judgment Day will reveal whether we are the "wise man" who built his life on a foundation of rock or the "foolish man" who built his life on a foundation of sand. We need to know which man we are now, because on that Day it will be too late to rebuild! 
     
    We hope you can be with us this weekend for Pastor Ray's important message, "A Tale of Two Houses".

    "The rampant disease of 'entitlement' is a contagious, insidious state of mind that has infected a whole generation of young people."
    - Richard Kirshenbaum, Advertising Executive
     
    The opposite of "thanksgiving" is not "un-thanksgiving", it is entitlement, a spiritual disease that is at the root of so many of the cultural crises confronting our nation today. We hope you can be with us this weekend to hear Pastor Ray's message, "The Opposite of Thanksgiving", an eye-opening look at this uniquely American disease and what God is calling His people to do about it!

    Our culture today is tragically characterized by dishonor, division, and discourtesy. God wants to restore in the local church a "culture of honor" declaring and demonstrating a counter-cultural witness that provokes onlookers to the healthy and holy alternative of the Kingdom of God.
     
    Returning with Doris from the Intercessors for America annual board meeting in Washington DC, Larry Tomczak will bring fresh inspiration and biblical instruction on this critical theme today.

    "Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it. " - Matthew 7:13-14 (NKJV)
     
    "If you find it easy to be a Christian, you probably aren't one." Matt Walsh 
    Jesus tells us that our eternity will be determined by one of 2 choices: the "narrow gate"  that leads to life or the "broad gate" that leads to destruction, and that "many" will be lost and "few" will be saved. We hope you can be with us for this week's compelling message that exposes the false gospel being preached today that offers an easy way to heaven and a comfortable path along the way.

    WHAT IS LOVE?
    W H A T  I S  L O V E ?

    French artist Marcel Duchamp said "There is something like an explosion in the meaning of certain words."
    The word love is certainly one of those words. Although it is often misunderstood and abused both in the church and in society at large, love is clearly defined in the bible and it is something that can be lived out every day.
     
    Children's pastor Kyle Rucker brings us the word this week with a very timely and powerful message!
