As we continue in our Encounter series, Pastor Dhati talks about the dangers of cultural Christianity and the need to submit our cultural expectations to the Lordship of Christ. In his sermon, Pastor Dhati explains the importance and necessity of culture and exposes the related dangers that can hinder the advancement of the Gospel of Jesus. He concludes by calling us to embrace our identity as foreigners by clinging to God in faith.

Miracles are, by nature, an extraordinary occurrence. However, miracles are not meant to point to themselves. Rather, they are to point to the One who sent them. Of the many miracles Jesus performed, His presence is the greatest miracle offered to us. All of His miracles were intended to point to His deity and how He has bridged the relational gap between God and man. 

In our walk with Jesus there seems to be price points at which we say to Jesus, "I will follow you up to this point, but beyond this point the price is too high." Jesus' call to follow Him is all consuming. When He purchased His people on the cross, He purchased his people in their entirety, not just portions of them. What is your price point?  

As we continue in the Encounter series, Pastor Dhati talks about the human psyche and how we often ask the question, "Why bother?" He explains that the origin of this question is rooted in a lack of trusting God’s provision in our circumstances.

In the latest sermon of our Encounter series, Pastor Lucius tells us about the mercy God has given us through Jesus. Pastor Lucius exhorts and encourages us to be in awe of this mercy and that the proper response to such a great mercy should be a life lived on mission.

As we continue in the Encounter series, Pastor Dhati talks about how chapter 4 of the Gospel of Mark is meant to both warn the disciples about the difficulties of sowing and encourage them to keep sowing. Dhati explains that after seeing the Jesus’ power and hearing his teaching, the disciples are to wrestle with the question, “Who is this?” How they answer that question will impact their faith as a seed sower.

As we continue in the series, Pastor Dhati explains why we have to go beyond our momentary experiences and allow the word of God to dwell richly in our hearts. In this sermon, Dhati explores the parable of sower as a way to get us to truly be changed by the gospel.

Pastor Lucius Rouser IV continues in our Encounter series, in the book of Mark. Diving into Mark 3:13-35, he explains how Christ desires to have communion with us, and that he uses mission as His means to accomplish it. Community is the by-product of mission.

The person and work of Christ refines the person and works of man.

In this sermon, Pastor Dhati talks about one of the greatest fears we have to overcome—the fear of inviting someone to accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior. Dhati continued in Chapter 1 of the Gospel of Mark and expounded on the invitations we give and the responses we receive when asking others to encounter Jesus.

As we begin our new series, Encounter, Pastor Lewis illustrates why encountering the story of Jesus in the Gospel of Mark is important to encourage and inspire us as believers.  We hope to inspire our family to encounter the story of the Person of Christ by explaining, “Who He is.”
