Building the Church: A Devotion to the Word of God

"And they devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers." Acts 2:42
"The law of the Lord is perfect,reviving the soul;the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple;the precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart;the commandment of the Lord is pure,enlightening the eyes; the fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever;the rules of the Lord are true, and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold,even much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and drippings of the honeycomb. Moreover, by them is your servant warned;in keeping them there is great reward." Psalm 19:7-11
We will be devoted to the Word of God because...
Truth #1: The Law of the Lord is Perfect: Reviving the Soul
Truth #2: The Testimony of the Lord is Sure: Making Wise the Simple
Truth #3: The Precepts of the Lord are right: Rejoicing the Heart
Truth #4: The Commandment of the Lord is pure: Enlightening the Eyes
Truth #5: The Fear of the Lord is Clean: Enduring Forever
Truth #6: The Rules of the Lord are true and Righteous

Mission Conference Saturday Night: Carl Teichrib

In "Our Changing World and the Great Commission," Carl Teichrib challenges our assumptions about missions. The focus is often on foreign missions, but he emphasizes that all Christian believers are missionaries; the field is in our backyard, our communities, and our families. A missionary is most simply a truth-teller proclaiming the truth about God's character, human nature and Christ's finished work on the cross. The current mission field is made up of three main groups of people - non-religious unbelievers, religious non-Christians, and the Christian struggling with unbelief and attempting to incorporate other spirituality into Christianity. Truth remains the truth, and we are commissioned to deliver that message to those around us.  

Print/view detailed sermon notes from the evening. You can also read more from Carl on his blog, including recent excerpts from an upcoming book.
