Pietism is the next stream in our heritage, and it is the stream that led to the birth of the Brethren in Christ. What is pietism and what difference does it make in how we follow Christ today? In Pietism: The Way of Renewal (3 of 6), Pastor David shares how true piety is born of the Holy Spirit at work in our hearts, who enables us to experience the real presence of God and bear fruitful lives of discipleship.

Sermon Title: Experiencing God’s Love & Grace (1 of 10)
Scripture Reading: Colossians 2:6-7; Ephesians 2:8-10; John 3:3

Experiencing the love and grace of God is the foundation for all that the Brethren in Christ (BIC) hold dear. Everything that we value begins and ends there. Our faith can’t simply be an exercise of the mind. It must also be about heart-change and life transformation that comes from knowing the living Christ. 

In Experiencing God’s Love & Grace (1 of 10), Pastor David shares what it means to really know God and be changed.
