The Church is not a building or an event. It is a community. It’s designed by God to bless us and give us support and fellowship. But it can be hard. The effort is worth it, yet the effects of not fostering community can be disastrous.
Does the DNA, the identity, the makeup Heritage Bible Church match the pages of Scripture? Are we a match to the Church Jesus founded? Please join Pastor Dustin Rogers today as we examine the DNA of Heritage Bible Church what it means to be sound in worship.
Does the DNA of your church match the pages of scripture. We continue our dive into scripture to understand the makeup and identity of an authentic church. A Gospel-centered church is another DNA trait, understanding that our faith in God’s redemptive plan is the central story of the bible and that we see that faith is the grid for how we live our lives upward, inward and outward.
Today we continue to put our church under the microscope of God’s word to see if our DNA is a match to the church Jesus founded and intended. In the book of Matthew we will find Jesus’ promise about His Church give rise to a command for His Church. This is a command that continues to be relevant to us today and one that must continue to shape who we are.
Your DNA explains who you are, how you are built, what makes you who you are. But what is the Church’s DNA and what is the recipe for what it is and how it’s built. Pastor Dustin kicks off a new series that explores this theme.
Do Christians struggle to celebrate spiritual wins? Have we earned the name the “frozen chosen”? Esther 9 shows us to not only celebrate birthdays, graduations and other life moments but to find joy to celebrate our spiritual successes.
Life is full of events in our past that we use to learn from and that we can celebrate. It’s important to celebrate. Not just because it’s fun but because it’s important to celebrate for otherwise we forget. This is one of the driving lessons of Esther 9.
God’s design for the family leads us to see a husband and a father in loving unity with his wife and his childrens’ mother. We are ever in need of more godly fathers who will take the lead. While it’s certainly true that more men need to step up and pursue Christ and lead their homes, ladies your role in this is critical. Pastor Dustin looks at the important role wives play in tending the garden of the family.
The book of Esther has reminded us life can at times seem bleak and hopeless and yet God doesn’t fail or fall down on his promises. Esther 8 and 9 calls back to Esther 3 to show us how God ultimately wins. Every time.
