Fully Equipped for the Future

Fully Equipped for the Future

by Robert Matthews | Authentic Christianity

Paul opens his letter to the flawed fellowship at Corinth by giving thanks for their position in Christ and for the privileges they had been given when they were set apart to God at their new birth (1 Corinthians 1:1-9). As a local church, they were fully equipped through their relationship with God in Christ to live an authentic life until the day of His appearing.

20/20 Vision – Unifying

20/20 Vision for Unity

by Larry Murray | PBC Sermons

As we begin a new year, our biblical purpose and desire as a local church, the Body of Christ, is to be a unifying church.

Unity is the desire of God for His glory and for our good.  “How good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in harmony!” (Psalm 133:1) When unity characterizes us as believers in the LORD, we can live out biblical mission with God’s approval and the Spirit’s power. That’s why, in John 17:11;21-23, Jesus prayed that His disciples would experience the same kind of unity that He, as the Son of God, experienced with His Father. Jesus prayed to the Father by the Spirit that His disciples would be unified in character, witness, and glory to God.

20/20 Vision for Equipping

20/20 Vision for Equipping

by Larry Murray | PBC Sermons

As we begin a new year, our biblical purpose and desire as a local church, the Body of Christ, is to be an equipping church

Long before David became King of Israel, even before he faced off on the battlefield against Goliath, the LORD equipped him with knowledge, a heart for God, and the skills he learned from being a shepherd. In Psalm 78, Asaph teaches a younger generation to remember what the LORD has done in the past so that they would trust in Him and obey His Word. In this psalm Asaph says, “He chose David his servant and took him from the sheep pens; He brought him from tending ewes to be shepherd over his people Jacob—over Israel, his inheritance. He shepherded them with a pure heart and guided them with his skillful hands(Psalm 78:72).

That’s our vision as a church – to equip you, the body of Christ, with the knowledge (head), love (heart), and skills (hands) that you need to faithfully serve the Lord personally, corporately, and in the PBC community (Romans 12:4-8; 1 Peter 4:10; Ephesians 4:11-13).

20/20 Vision for Growing

20/20 Vision for Growing

by Jeff Edmuinds | PBC Sermons

As we begin a new year, one of the most important aspects of following Jesus is growing in our personal relationship with Him. Our biblical purpose and desire as the body of Christ is to be a growing church. The Bible instructs and encourages every believer in Jesus Christ to keep growing and maturing, but that’s easy to forget.

What is the goal of growth? Knowing Christ (Philippians 3:4-9). What is the imperative of growth? Knowing Him (Colossians 2:6-7). What is the means for growth? God Himself.

20/20 Vision for Going

20/20 Vision for Going

by Craig Williams | PBC Sermons

As we begin a new year, one of the most important aspects of following Jesus is going out to our community and world to tell others about Him. Our biblical purpose and desire as the body of Christ is to be a going church. We go to people and invest in people because our mission is leading all people to a relationship with Jesus. As we grow spiritually ministry opportunities arise for PBC to participate and partner with in the future.

20/20 Vision for Worship

20/20 Vision for Worship

by Ryan Rives | PBC Sermons

As we begin a new year, one of the most important aspects of our lives is worshipping God. Our biblical purpose and desire as the body of Christ is to be a worshipping church.

What is worship? It’s valuing God above all other things and people. Like a 35mm film negative, when we see God clearly, we can worship Him for who He is and for what He has done.

Romans 12:1 guides us in our worship saying, “In view of God’s mercies, present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God; this is your true worship.”  We worship God with our heads (knowledge), our hearts (surrender), and our hands (love).

20/20 Vision for our 2020 Mission

20/20 Vision for our 2020 Mission

by Larry Murray | PBC Sermons

With so much going on in the world around us as well as our homes, families, and church, we need some clarity for living life today. As we begin a new year, it’s crucial that we clearly see our mission as followers of Jesus Christ. When we understand why we are here in light of our hope of eternity, we can move on from simply surviving to successfully living for Him.

Our mission is to lead all people to a life-changing, ever growing relationship with JESUS.

sermon by: Larry Murray

Mary Did You Know?

At the very heart of the Christmas story lies the all-important doctrine of the Atonement. How can sinful people, separated from God in their sin and selfishness, be reconciled to a Holy God? By atonement. Atonement is the process by which two (typically estranged) people or parties are made “at-one” or at peace with each other. By sending Jesus as our atoning sacrifice, God graciously provides a way for sinful people to live with Him forever.

Jesus is the Reason for the Season (1 John 4:10). In the same way, Leviticus is the basis for Christmas (Leviticus 16:30) because God sent Jesus to be the atoning sacrifice for our sins, once and for all (Hebrews 10:3-5, 11-14).

Mary did you know that your baby boy would one day walk on water? Mary did you know that your baby boy would save our sons and daughters? Did you know that your baby boy has come to make you new? This child that you’ve delivered, will soon deliver you.  

Mary did you know that He would be the Atoning Sacrifice for the sins of the world?

What Child Is This?

According to recent studies, the majority of the world’s population believes in God or a universal deity. Of course, people describe God in very different ways: personal deity, transcendent divine, higher power, or universal spirit. Nonetheless, we believe something or someone is above humanity and the universe as we know it. So, when a particular person claims to be God, it’s a big deal. And Jesus—the baby born in Bethlehem in the first century CE—did just that. Who is He? What Child is this?
