Today we continue our mini-series in Psalms with an eye toward thanksgiving in Psalm 100. One of the ways in which the Psalms help us is to remind us of how much we have to praise God for…no matter our current station. Whether we are on top of the mountain or in the darkest valley, we have reason to look up and, with Godward emotion, praise His name! The Psalm of Thanksgiving – Psalm 100 – will remind us of our reasons for praise and call us to worship.
The exile of King David from Jerusalem is perhaps the lowest point of his life. David’s enigmatic life led him to be called “the man after God’s own heart”, yet he had deeply destructive patterns of sin. As a result, he knew what is was to face the consequences of his own sin.

One of the ways in which the Psalms help us is to remind us of how much we have to praise God for…no matter our current station. Whether we are on top of the mountain or in the darkest valley, we have reason to look up and, with Godward emotion, praise His name! Psalm 98 is one of the more jubilant songs in the Psalter. Please join us in studying it!
It’s amazing that God knows the end of the story. What if he didn’t or our story has an different ending from the one you know. Psalm 124 lets us wrestle with that but brings us to praise that God is on our side.
We are sometimes asleep to the blessing around us. In the 21st century we have one of the greatest spiritual privileges ever given. Pastor Dustin closes our HBC DNA series talking about our best gift of the Holy Spirit that indwells us. But we need to be mindful of not closing off the fountain of this blessing through our choices.
The last message in the DNA series turns the page to how we react and fellowship when church life can get messy and complicated. Grace is not something that we turn off and on or something that we give in to get something in return. We as followers of Christ are instructed to absorb all the cost to forgive when we have been offended.
Does the DNA – the identity, the makeup of Heritage Bible Church match the pages of scripture? The substance of our fourth core value at Heritage is “Committed to Missions”. The question is, are we going? To what extent are we fueled by the passion of Christ to reach the people for Him? How much thought do we give to the lost all around us? Please join Pastor Dustin Rogers today as he talks about what it looks like to be sent and where it is that God has called us to go.
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 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.
