What is power?

Posted on

When Christians think about supernatural power, there’s a tendency to view it in terms of mighty works like miraculous healings or raising the dead.  But as Kevin Harvey takes the pulpit, he shares his understanding about what might be a more important kind of power in our lives: power for growth, our character, our Christ-likeness being evident to other people. Message delivered 10/22/17.

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.

In this installment we finish studying Romans 12 which helps us to deal with difficult relationships. Loving others is intentional whether the relationship is healthy or a challenge. Setting boundaries is important. Jesus turned the other cheek but He did not live the life of a victim. In this series we will continue to explore how we live life together to get where God is leading us! Message delivered by Pastor John Young 8/27/17.
