In week 6 of this series, visiting pastor Bryan Bernard, from our church partner Grant Avenue Baptist Church in Corvallis, Oregon, looks at Acts 1-2 and Matthew 16:13-18 to show the value, importance, and need for the local church. He also focuses on the reality that church is more than just a building or meeting time once a week but rather a community of people gathered around a common conviction rooted in Jesus.

In week 7 of this series, pastor Michael looks at the two ordinance's of the church, baptism and the Lord's Supper. Looking at the commands of Jesus in Matthew, as well as what Paul said in Romans and 1 Corinthians, we see that these two essential forms of worship for the local church do not save us or improve our standing with God, but rather are symbolic in nature and ways to worship and refocus our attention of Jesus alone.

In week 8 of this series, pastor Michael takes a deep dive into the greatness of God's Grace. In his message, he looks at the tension that arises from the twin truths of scripture that no one is saved apart from God drawing them and saving them yet holding on to the reality that anyone who repents and trusts will be saved. It is purely by God's grace that we are saved yet each person has a personal responsibility to accept God's free gift of salvation. The good news is that once we truly surrender our life to Jesus, we will be His for all of eternity. This Good News inevitably will lead us to embrace a sense of urgency to share God's grace and salvations with others!

In week 10 of this series, pastor Michael takes time to show what the Bible means when it talks of the Kingdom of God. He shows in scripture that God makes clear that we will never find anything in this life more valuable than the Kingdom of God. He also shows that if we are truly citizens of God's Kingdom that it will affect every area of our life as we are now living our life for God's glory and not our own reputation and glory.

In week 11 of this series, pastor Michael takes time to at what the Bible has to say about the "Last Things" or what many people call the End "Times." While the Old and New Testaments have a lot of prophecy regarding the End Times, it is more valuable to look at the promises of God and what we know will happen. When we have a better understanding of what we know will happen, it will impact us in profound ways and gives a clear direction on how to live our lives today!
