Seven Commands of Christ — Pray

Posted on

Pastor John Young begins a teaching series on seven things he commanded his followers to do:

  • Repent and believe
  • Baptize new believers
  • Pray and meditate on God’s word
  • Love God, your neighbor and your enemy
  • Partake of the Lord’s Supper
  • Give joyfully
  • Make disciples for Jesus

In part 1, he focuses on prayer and meditation and admonishes that the Enemy is working hard to distract and discourage us.  The main point of Ephesians 6:17-18 about putting on the full armor of God is to prepare us for the combat of prayer.

Before his message, church member Wendy McDermott shares a word of knowledge about faith.

Together to get there — the conclusion

Posted on

To walk Together to get to the places in life we are called to is a team effort. It happens through unity in the Spirit, Love for each other, the work and fruit of the Holy Spirit helping us to engage each other in a way that reflects Christ, and self sacrifice. Dying to self is a team sport. We don’t take up our cross alone, we do it together encouraging each other through the journey of life for the glory of God. Message delivered 12/3/17.

Wrapping up his “Barriers to Relationships” segment of Together to Get There, Pastor John looks at two more mindsets that, on the surface, seem positive, but really are selfish, focused on staying in control of our own lives and dependent on people as pawns in our strategies rather than surrendering to God, who is the only one who truly has the power to create the peace we desire. Message delivered 11/19/17.

Journey together

Posted on

We are all part of each other’s lives in the journey of life. As a result, we get to share in important moments. This Sunday, we participated in an example of that. Jeff Perez and Ady Gúzman have testified how they found themselves drawn in the N3C fellowship by the warmth, genuine love and acceptance from the members of the body. As part of the service, they moved from being a couple to engaged … to married!

Pastor John Young reviews some aspects of relationships as we grow in walking together. It is important to have a proper perspective in understanding where we find our identity. Our relationships thrive by us conquering evil with good. Regardless of what others do, we see God at work when we do good regardless. Most importantly, we cannot follow Christ on our own. We need each other and are encouraged to carry each others burdens … understanding we can help each other with burdens without being absorbed by them. Message delivered 9/17/17.
