The Gospel

No One Seeks God

1. Pastor Steve teaches on the egalitarianism or equality of sin.  God sees us all as equally capable of sin.

2. In our fallen nature the trajectory of sin points us toward ourselves and not towards God.  We seek the good things God can give us but not for God.

3. God alone has the cure for our sin, and any attempt to “fix” ourselves is only affirming that we don’t seek God.  Christians should fear God’s coming judgement but in that fear be humbled.  Only this humility will change our sinful trajectory and cure our sin.

Romans 3:9-20

The Heart of Darkness

Listen as Pastor Steve Resch continues a series which takes a look at the whole story of the Bible. This week Steve speaks from Romans about our heart of darkness.

1. The knowledge of our God allows us to relate to Him via His Grace.

2. The Factory of our Idols prevents us from worshiping the Creator and serving Him.

Romans 1:18-15
