    Submit to God’s Word
    Series Summary: What does an “ideal” church look like? Perhaps it isn’t what we tend to look for. The church wasn’t our idea — it’s God’s. Jesus established the Church as the sole agent for communicating the Gospel, making disciples, and promoting spiritual growth. Our spiritual health depends upon the Church. So let’s take a look at what the habits of a healthy, vibrant church are so we have a Biblical standard with which to measure the health of our own Church.
    This Sermon: In this first installment of THRIVE (8 Habits of a Healthy, Vibrant Church), Ashton unpacks the first habit -- Submit to God's Word.

    "I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me."
         -Galatians 2:20

    Gospel Unity
    Series: Galatians
    "So let’s commit to looking for the Gospel and we’ll discover opportunities to unify.  I’ll be the first to admit that it’s not always easy to do … sometimes it takes work.  I’ll even confess that I’ve missed it until a fellow Christian reminds me.  I believe that unity is impossible to get right alone — I believe it takes a Church committed to the Gospel to maintain unity."
                                                                                                                                                                                                    -Ashton Stewart

    The Unique Gospel
    Series: Galatians
    As we enter our summer-long study of the New Testament book of Galatians, Ashton explores what it is that is so compelling about the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
    "Anyone who thinks that Jesus + anything = salvation is distorting the message of the Gospel and are rejecting the authority of Jesus...This is the point of Paul's letter to the Galatians...Christians must embrace God's grace as a free gift. We cannot be loved by God any more or less that we are already loved. Salvation is not earned. It is given to us and we accept it because of Jesus."

    So Find Purpose In It
    "If you’re in the midst of your adult years … maybe you’ve just graduated from college or your not quite yet ready to retire (and everyone in between) … take a honest assessment of your life. Realize the brevity of life — that life is but a mist — and be honest enough to admit that every pursuit in life is vain if it’s not focused upon God. Paul writes in Colossians 3:17, 'And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.' ~ Ashton Stewart

    "As a church family, we have to make it our priority to surround our young people during this crucial phase and lovingly encourage our students when they have questions and point them toward the only one who can handle our doubts. Jesus can handle our doubts, don't you think?" ~ Ashton Stewart
  • May 6, 2018Don’t Miss It

    Don’t Miss It
    James 4:13-14 — 13 Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.” 14 Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.
    Each moment is a gift. The next is not promised to you. Life moves at such a rapid pace that if we’re not careful, we’ll miss it. Don’t blink. James said life is a mist that appears for a moment and then vanished. ~ Ashton Stewart

    What We Pray About
    As God's children, the way we pray reveals the trust we have in Him to respond and answer. ~ Ashton Stewart

    “Which of you, if your son asks for bread, will give him a stone? 10 Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? 11 If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him! Matthew 7:9-11 (NIV)

    Not Guilt, But Grace
    When we do not receive what we deserve and when we receive a gift that we do not deserve, it ought to change who we are and it ought to change how we live. The Bible in Romans 2:4 says that “God’s kindness is intended to lead you to repentance.” ~Ashton Stewart

    For Our Good and God’s Glory
    None of the moments in our life are ever wasted. God's plan sometimes includes our suffering and pain. When we look at the life of Joseph in the book of Genesis, we see that whether he was the prince or in a pit, God was present. And the same is true for us in every moment we go through.

    "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”  Romans 8:28

    "Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us."  Hebrews 12:1
