Idolatry is the sin from which all other sins come about in our lives. But unfortunately, many people don't recognize what an idol looks like today and so they don't know how to let go of it in order to receive what only God can give us. Money, sex, and power are three of God's greatest gifts that too often become idols of the heart. In Redeeming Money (1 of 3), Pastor David challenges us to consider whether money is an idol of our heart, and then he invites us to get our life from Christ alone.

The Scriptures talk about money far more than most topics. Furthermore, Jesus talked about money in the Sermon on the Mount, the core of his teachings. In fact, Jesus makes how we spend our money and use our resources a central part of following him and living into the Kingdom of God. Listen as guest speaker Beryl Jantzi shares what Jesus' words mean for us today, in a message entitled, Money Matters According to Jesus

Roots (9 of 10)

Sermon Series: Roots: Exploring the Core Values of the Brethren in Christ
Sermon Title: Living Simply (9 of 10)
Scripture Reading: Acts 2:42-47; Matthew 5:42; 6:19-21; 1 John 3:16-19

In the book of Acts we read that when people came to faith in Christ the impact was immediately seen in their individual behavior and communal practices. The early church was serious about discipleship and community. They were willing to throw off all that hindered their ability to love boldly, give generously, and serve one another joyfully.

In Living Simply (9 of 10), Pastor David helps us to see that simple living is about freeing ourselves up to give more for the sake of the Kingdom.
