Sermon -  "The Life of Freedom: Our New Life in Christ" (July 19,  2020)

A common misconception is that the blessings of Christ rest solely in the future, as if it's all just about "going to heaven when we die." However, the truth is that Jesus gives us not only eternal life, but also new life — new life which we will enjoy forever, but which is ours even now. Therefore, we ask: what does this new life look like? In this sermon, we explore a portion of Exodus 20, where God gives us the answer.

Sermon -  "Adopted as God's Child: What Does It Mean?" (August 2,  2020)

As a Christian, we understand that we are God's child, that He's graciously adopted us into His family. Although we were lost in our sins, Christ won salvation for us by His cross. And now God bestows this salvation upon us publicly in baptism, where He washes our sins away and makes us His children. But what does actually it mean to be God's child? Even though we say this often, have we ever stopped to consider its meaning? In this sermon, we explore a portion of Romans, chapter 8, in which Paul unpacks this glorious reality for us.

Sermon -  "Facing Temptation Faithfully: A Helpful Guide" (August 9,  2020)

In this life, we Christians will face temptations of all kinds, as the devil works tirelessly to lure us away from Christ, back into the life of sin.
