I am a Church Member

In our Bible belt community, it used to be most everyone had some connection to some particular church. Maybe it was because of grandparents, parents, or neighbors. Maybe because they were sprinkled as an infant, baptized as a child, walked an aisle, signed a card, wrote a check, or went on a mission trip.

It is not a given anymore, even in the Bible belt, that being a member of some church is important or necessary. Statistics indicate the majority are not in a church at all. In our culture of individualism, as long as one has his/her life straight with God, church (including church membership) is "optional." And, if it is one of our priorities, it is often based on individual preferences for meeting our own needs. 

For the month of August, we will be exploring what the Bible indicates that it takes and looks like to be a church member. Most of the Sunday message Scripture focus will be in Philippians. Our SaLT groups will be using a little book by Thom Rainer, I Am A Church Member.

Come and be a part of our journey into Biblical church membership.

Daniel, Sovereignty and Survival

The book of Daniel is written about a time "when God's people live under ungodly world dominion. The book promotes hope by teaching that at all times 'the Most High God is ruler over the kingdoms of men' (5:21)" (HCSB Study Bible). Daniel is an example of faithfulness and holiness in a culture similar to ours; of pluralism, individualism, and relativism. He and his friends stand strong in their faith in Yahweh in spite of the risks and consequences. Daniel also gives us a view of the future that assures us God will ultimately prove his power and reign victorious. Click here to download a Salt group study guide.

FaithWorks, the letter from James

FaithWorks is our fall series through the letter from Jesus half-brother, James. The letter from James is a wonderful companion piece to the teachings of Jesus as recorded in the four gospels. James has a strong ethical emphasis that is consistent with the moral teachings Jesus gave to his disciples. He also mirrors the sometimes harsh denunciations that Jesus spoke against religious hypocrisy. Like Jesus' teachings, the book of James is both a source of exhortation and comfort, reproof and encouragement. Finally, James is known for being extremely practical, yet it contains some of the most profound theological truths of the New Testament. (taken from the Holman Christian Standard Study Bible)
