Relationships. We all have them. Some relationships we have are better than others. Yet, all relationships can be improved upon. There is no such thing as a perfect relationship. In this sermon, we look at how to apply certain characteristics to our relationships.
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.
Believe it or not, evil has a face. Evil is not merely a concept or something generally opposite of “good.” All evil can be traced back to a single agent: Satan. War, sickness, disease, catastrophes, violence, lust, addictions, pestilence, waste, relational conflicts, selfishness—all sin and all that is wrong in the world is a particular expression of evil, the unending rebellion of Satan against God. The world continues to bear the scars of this mutiny. In today's passage, we see Jesus confront the demoniac, conquer the destructive, and commission the delivered.
Storms are unpredictable. At times, we see them coming, hiding in dark, rolling clouds that fill the horizon. If they come in the dead of night, we don’t see them, but we hear the booming thunder and driving rain. Think back to the worst storm you remember experiencing. Maybe you were in your room listening to it, or out in the woods hiking, or maybe driving through it. Think about the awesome power of nature and your sense of helplessness. What were your feelings through the storm?
In this sermon, Kris Cheek, Executive Director of Maranatha Bible Camp and Retreat Center, encourages Freedom Church to follow Paul's example of winning people to Christ. Specifically, the religious, irreligious, and the weak (hurting and broken people).
We take a break from the Gospel of Mark to look at what it means to be "devoted to... fellowship" (Acts 2). Pastor Scott proposes that the essence of Christian Life is fellowship with God and others. No recording of the sermon this week.
In this passage, Jesus is misunderstood by his family, misrepresented by the religious leaders, and makes a clear point about sin and belonging to the family of God.
Today’s question, when it comes to Jesus, are you going to be part of the crowd or a committed follower.
In this week's message, Pastor Scott lays the biblical foundation for our purpose statement: Freedom Church exists to glorify God by making and growing more followers of Jesus Christ. He also outlines some goals and expectations for 2019.
In today's workshop, we work through a "Personal Disciple-making Plan." We want every follower of Christ to be making and growing more followers of Christ, all to the glory of God. This practical workshop helps you do just that. Since this was a workshop, there will be no video!
