At Our Core

At the core of our journey with Jesus you will discover four passages from the Bible:

  • The Lord Jesus Christ is our Life to live the Life: Galatians 2:20-21 NIV84 — “I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me. I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness could be gained through the law, Christ died for nothing!”
  • The Lord Jesus Christ is not only our Life but our example for this Life since He did not come to be served but to serve:  John 13:13-15 NIV84 — “You call me ‘Teacher’ and ‘Lord,’ and rightly so, for that is what I am. Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet. I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you.”
  • The Lord Jesus Christ’s Life demonstrates that the wounded whine, but the broken serve; those serving are being made whole and are understanding the resurrected life: Psalm 51:17 NIV84 — “The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, You will not despise.” and Phil. 3:10-14 NIV84 — “I want to know Christ and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in His sufferings, becoming like Him in his death, and so, somehow, to attain to the resurrection from the dead. Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.

    1. Not officially, though we follow similar principles of searching the Scriptures, Scripture interprets Scripture and the like. I am the pastor and do the bulk of the preaching. My style is expository–i.e., going through a passage and unpacking the Big Idea. But my messages are interactive. I ask non-rhetorical questions, and involve the congregation through object lessons and the like. If you have any follow-up questions, I’d be glad to help. Thank you for asking.
