As Christians, we are called to live differently. Not because we are superior or self-righteous but because we know a different love. As we continue working our way through Ephesians, today we will see five ways that Paul instructs Christians to live differently. Lead Pastor John Almquist examines five ways that should characterize a Christian's way of life.
Holiness is something that is often talked and sung about, but is it something that Christians often try to be about? Today, the Apostle Paul is going to share with us the framework for why holiness is something we must all be about as Christians. There is no such thing as coasting spiritually, and today Lead Pastor John Almquist begins the conversation of why that's true as he examines Ephesians 4:17-24.
Have you ever thought what it would mean for the Christian faith if Jesus had not been Resurrected? Have you ever thought about the implications if the tomb was not empty? Join us today as first we see the Apostle Paul share with the church in Corinth that if Christ did not rise from the dead, our faith is in vain. But second, he will share that in fact Christ has risen, and as such, we can find our hope in our faith! Listen as Lead Pastor John Almquist continues our study of Ephesians. Join us live Sunday's 10 AM at McKenna.
Have you ever wanted to be part of the 'in' crowd? Maybe you were voted most liked of some sort in school. Maybe you've just struggled to belong. Is it possible for church to become a place that requires you to fit in? If so, what would that look like? The way you talk, dress, bible knowledge, or maybe involvement? Listen to Part 2 of the teaching based on Paul's instructions for what the local church must be. How God desires, and has called, all churches to be effective in their ministry to one another, and by doing so, build themselves up in love. How the local church is meant to be a place of life change, as it is God's divine institution and primary means of extending Christ's love to seek and save a lost world. By the power of Christ, the local church is the hope of the world. Listen as Lead Pastor John Almquist looks at Ephesians 4:11-16. Join us Sunday's 10 AM at McKenna.
