The Unity of Wisdom

July 13, 2014  |  Joe Boot

The wisdom that made all things is the same wisdom that we are to apply in our lives and to teach to the next generation. The failure to do this creates a culture of folly.

Scripture: Proverbs 3:1-26

Education and the Mission of God

August 17, 2014  |  Scott Masson

If we reject the Lord of life we will reap a culture of death. Education in the knowledge of God and submission to His law-order is the basis for freedom, blessing, and a long life.

Purity and Fidelity

September 11, 2011  |  Joe Boot

In the book of Proverbs, infidelity, fornication and adultery are the opposite of practical wisdom and faithfulness. Infidelity is not the path to freedom; it leads to physical, emotional, and spiritual harm to our humanity.

Your Rod and Staff

August 28, 2011  |  Scott Masson

Our church is called to a ministry of nurture, which includes church discipline. You can't sin and say it's no one else's business. We live in community. A little leaven leavens the whole lump. We grieve the Holy Spirit when we fail to discipline and be disciplined. Only biblical Christianity gives life meaning. It gives us social order; and it balances liberty and law.

Moral Madness

August 14, 2011  |  Joe Boot

Moral madness leads to self-deception, observed in the inability to recognize one's own rebellion against God's moral order. We either intellectually deny God's existence, or we deny God practically by the way we live.

Gospel Hospitality

April 30, 2017  |  Russ Hiebert

To practice hospitality as Jesus did we need to minister to both the spiritual and the physical needs of the whole person. We can only do this by hearing God's call upon our own lives and acting in the resurrection power of Christ.

The Snare of Fear

August 21, 2011  |  Joe Boot

Fear can lead to dread, which leads to an inability to move or act as humans. Fear of God is the opposite of fear of man. When we face enemies while doing God's work, we're secure because it is God who stands behind us granting us strength.

We should not seek after wealth (Pr. 30:7-9) but God wants us to be both wise and generous with the wealth he has given us.
