Getting the Gospel Right

Sermon Title: Getting the Gospel Right
Scripture Reading: Mark 1:1-15; 1 Corinthians 15:1-8; Ephesians 2:8-10


A few years ago Barna found that 90% of children that grow up in evangelical homes make a decision to follow Jesus, but less that 25% are still following Jesus by the time they're 35. What is going on that so many adults who make a profession of faith in Christ when they were young aren’t continuing to follow him today? Could it be that much of the church hasn't fully embraced the gospel of Jesus? In Getting the Gospel Right, Pastor David says we haven't, and he challenges us to embrace the totality of the gospel message.

Sermon Title: Witnessing to the World (6 of 10)
Scripture Reading: Matthew 5:13-16; 28-18-20; Luke 15:1-7

Jesus said he is the light of the world. He came proclaiming good news to the poor, sight for the blind, and freedom for the captives. With God’s authority, he told his disciples to let their light shine and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them and teaching them to obey his commands. How do we shine our light and engage our culture today with the gospel?

In Witnessing to the World (6 of 10), Pastor David challenges us to creatively navigate culture with a sense of urgency, and to be a faithful presence of Christ to the world around us.
