Romans Review (Part 3) – Gospel Clarity

If we have access to free grace and our past sins aren’t counted against us, does that lead to lawlessness then? Pastor Dustin reviews Romans 6 with us where Paul refuses that notion because of our unity in Christ.

Romans Review (Part 1)

We’re going to see [in 1:18-3:20] that the sheer depravity of mankind is pervasive and sits exposed by and condemned under the righteous wrath of God. You need to walk away today aware or reminded that you CANNOT fully understand or truly appreciate/celebrate the good news of the Gospel without the enduring message of the first section of Romans.

When we think too little or too lightly of our sin and God’s wrath, we will think too little of the cross. We will think too little of Jesus and His gospel. Our affections will be numb. The context of the in breaking of God’s grace is everything. Like Dunkirk without a miracle…With no great plight, there is NO great rescue.

Let’s Run

Join Pastor Dustin Rogers today as he challenges us from God’s word from Hebrews chapter 12 verses 1-2.

A Christmas Eve Message

Pastor Dustin gives a brief message from 2 Corinthians showing the Gospel meaning of Christmas and why we have reason to celebrate every day.

The Christmas Hope of Isaiah

What a blessing it is to be able to celebrate the birth of Christ – the advent of our Savior! – during the Christmas season. Jesus’ birth was the glorious dawn of the promised hope to Israel and to the world. It was the dawn of hope to people in desperate need of it. “The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness, on them has light shone.” (Isaiah 9:2) We praise God for the presence of Christ and the in-breaking light of His gospel! Please join us today as Pastor Dustin Rogers teaches from Isaiah 9.

The Family: To Parents (Part 2)

The latter half of Ephesians 6:4 tells parents to “bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord”. This relatively small phrase is robust. It speaks volumes to us. [And btw speaks help to all who are positioned to influence children like grandparents, aunts/uncles, children’s teachers, etc]

I trust that God will use His word to encourage us in this great task.

The Family: To Parents

The Family series has been about doing family well. God masterfully designed it as a beautiful and illumination of His glory. As we consider the last verse of Paul’s discourse about the family in Ephesians, it comes with a strong exhortation to parents.

Exhortation to Children

What do we think when we hear the term family? One reason is that it helps to capture the full community of faith that gathers each week…including the children. The youth are a big part of the assembled congregation. Ephesians 6:1-3 makes it clear that this was the mindset of Paul and the gathered church at Ephesus. As we continue our series on the Family, we’ll consider an admonition that God makes directly to the children…an admonition that carries applications and implications for all of us.

The Family – Singleness

We continue to look into God’s masterful design of family. For the last few weeks we’ve narrowed our scope to the realm of marriage. Today we spend the majority of our time considering an oft neglected part of every family. Fortunately, our God doesn’t neglect anyone. No, every individual has a special place inside the family of God and inside His church.

As I’ve studied the Word and listened to dear friends, I’ve been both convicted and impassioned this week about the importance of what God has to say about the focus of our text. Marriage is NOT the ultimate prize. Jesus is the ultimate prize. Single friend, you are loved, complete, and useful.

The Family (Part 5)

As we make way on our study of God’s masterful design of the family, we ask “how does a husband lead his wife and how does she follow?” What will this look like in practice and with what attitudes must they be carried out?Follow along as Paster Dustin Rogers addresses these questions and more from Ephesians 5:22-32.
