In the final sermon for 2019, Ted Olsen discusses what happened after Jesus' Resurrection when two of Jesus' disciples were walking on the road to Emmaus. Jesus told them about all of the prophecies that pointed to His death, burial, and resurrection. As Jesus did this, the disciples hearts burned within them. We need to let the Word of God burn within us!
In the final "In CHRISTmas" message, Pastor Scott looks at Ephesians 1 and the hope that we have in Christ. We have hope because we are chosen, adopted, and redeemed.
In the third "In CHRISTmas" series, Pastor Scott looks at how we become the family of God (or Church) when we are in Christ. Ephesians 2 tells how Christ took two of the most diametrically opposed people groups and united them in faith.
In today's message, Pastor Scott looks at how we are free in Christ. This means we are free from the penalty and power of sin and free to live a life for God.
Pastor Scott introduces our Christmas series, "In CHRISTmas," by examining our position in Christ. As believers in Jesus Christ and His birth, death, burial, and resurrection, we are new creations. What does this mean? Listen below.
S.H.A.P.E. is what Freedom Church is going to be studying for the next couple of months. It is one of the courses offered to promote personal spiritual growth and development through a variety of strategic classes. S.H.A.P.E. is designed to help you discover how God has uniquely shaped you for ministry.
In Ephesians 2:10, Paul describes us in this unique way: “For we are God’s masterpieces. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so that we can do the good things He planned for us long ago” (NLT). That makes us very special!
Our “S.H.A.P.E.” course will help you discover how God has created YOU as a unique “masterpiece,” and given you a unique “shape” to do the “good things” He has planned for you. In the process, it is our prayer that you will find that place here at Freedom Church and/or in the community at large where you can begin to DO those good things!
We will be going through each one of these and looking at them from a biblical perspective with an emphasis on practicing what we are learning.
Join us on Sunday mornings at 10 am.
In this passage, we see Jesus begin to clarify what the Messiah must do. He states in plain language that He will suffer, die, and rise again. Jesus then lays out the principles for genuine discipleship: give up your own way, take up your cross, and follow Jesus!
In this message, Pastor Trent encouraged us to make sure prayer is a priority in our life. If we are to live like Jesus, we need to pray. While it is easy to say we need to pray more, it is difficult to actually do it. Pastor Trent offers some practical steps to make prayer a priority.
In this passage, we see Jesus give a new outlook to a blind man and His disciples. In your understanding of Jesus, are you blind, do you see blurry, or are you enjoying 20/20 vision?
Jesus had faced his share of skeptics. From the very beginning of his public ministry, there were those who doubted his power and his authority. At every turn, they were questioning him. He generally dealt very patiently with them through the first two chapters of Mark. And then we get to Mark 3:6… After this, Jesus would spend less time explaining himself to the Pharisees and religious elite. Skeptics can usually be divided into two groups: The “Never Going to Believe No Matter What” and the genuine “I have questions” group. In this passage, we see both groups spending time with Jesus. We must ask ourselves serious questions about our faith. Are we waiting for a sign, some conclusive evidence or experience in order to believe? Or, are we trusting God and His Word? It is okay to have questions, but there comes a moment in our lives where we must weigh what we know and decide if we are going to trust. The Pharisees were never going to believe, and we’ll talk about some of the things that blinded them, while the disciples were on a genuine journey of faith. After this incident in Mark, Jesus would spend the majority of his time with his disciples, training and teaching them for the mission that lies ahead.
