Evangelism: Profession to Live Out

The purpose of the Church can be summed up with the mnemonic, WIFE.

W – Worship

I – Instruction

F – Fellowship

E – Evangelism

We may feel guilty about how we have been afraid to tell others of the grace that Jesus has freely given to us. Hear as Steve gives us boldness, using Jesus’s words, to contrast the church with the world where the church resides.

  1. You are the salt of the earth
  2. You are the light of the world

Fellowship: People to Live With

The purpose of the Church can be summed up with the mnemonic, WIFE.

W – Worship

I – Instruction

F – Fellowship

E – Evangelism

We are now adopted into the family of God. We can now join in “One-another-ing” each other.

How to One-Another:

  • How to be Friends
    • Affirm one another’s strengths, abilities, and gifts
    • Affirm one another’s equal importance in Christ
    • Affirm one another through visible affection
  • How to be Family
    • Share one another’s space, goods, and time
    • Share one another’s needs and problems
    • Share one another’s beliefs, thinking, and spirituality.
  • How to be Servants
    • Serve one another through accountability
    • Serve one another through forgiveness and reconciliation
    • Serve one another’s interests rather than our own.

The Word vs. the Wow

The Gospel Movement: The Acts of the Apostles

The Word vs. the Wow

Acts 8:4-40

What happens when the sensationalism of the world’s “WOW” confronts the grace of the Word of God? Listen as Steve guides us through a passage in Acts that mixes a magician, a magistrate, a minister, and the message.

The Embrace of Grace

Scandalous Grace

The Embrace of Grace

Luke 7:36-47

The Pharisees thought that Jesus’s proximity to such a great sinner discredited him. Jesus, on the other hand, came to save sinners, no matter how much they have sinned.

Great forgiveness provides the opportunity for great love.

The Legacy of Grace

Scandalous Grace

The Legacy of Grace

Joshua 2

We are taught from an early age, that we need to work for everything in our lives, but the favor of God cannot be earned. The church isn’t a club for the righteous, but a refuge for needy sinners.

Joins us as Steve shares a story of God’s pure grace to a enemy prostitute who would be spared, rescued, and become one of the women named in the lineage of King David.
