The Body and the Blood (1 Corinthians 11:17-34)

Taking the Lord’s Supper is just about the most “Christian” thing one can do. How is it, then, we understand its importance so poorly? This passage shows us that because the Lord’s Supper marks us out as one, it must be directed toward oneness. And that fact says a lot about who, what, and how.

In Authority (1 Timothy 2:12-15)

In our final message of this series, we examine what Paul means when he writes, “I do not permit a woman to teach or exercise authority over a man….” It’s a hard saying in 2018! But as we dig into Paul’s reasoning we find that creation order has implications for the relationship between men and women in church. And that’s good news! It means what was lost in Eden can be regained.

Christian Marriage (Ephesians 5:22-33)

Having set the foundations for ourn understanding of “Sex, Gender, & the Gospel,” we begin to look at some passages from the New Testament that are sometimes controversial. In this message, we look at a passage describing the relationship between a husband and a wife in a Christian marriage. There we see that the distinct roles in a Christian marriage are a witness to Christ’s work for his Church.

Foundations I (Genesis 1:26-31)

Understanding what the Bible and the Christian faith have to say about any topic requires looking at how the topic plays into the Bible’s storyline from Genesis to Revelation. So that’s how we begin this new series. In Genesis 1:26-31, we learn that God seeks to glorify himself throughout the cosmos through the blessing of his most important creation, human beings. This is evidenced in the form and the function of our creation.
