What is a “normal” Christian life? We turn to Acts 2:42-47 to see what normal life was like for the very first Christians. How “normal” is your life as a follower of Jesus?
Acts 2:1-13 records a turning point in human history: the day on which God the Holy Spirit was poured out on all followers of Jesus. We’ll see what some of the practical implications of this incredible event are for us today.
How did Christianity go from a movement started by Jesus and a handful of disciples to over 2.3 billion people who identify as Christians today? We begin a new series through the Book of Acts, which shows just how this whole “Christianity” thing started.
Pastor Andy turns to Matthew 28:16-20 to assess the church’s mission and what God has next for LakeView.
Pastor Andy preaches through 1 Corinthians 14:26-40 about what is fitting for church. When the church gathers, what should our gatherings look like? What should the character of our meetings be? How does our worship reflect the character of the God we worship? How can we be a Spirit-filled church? And what does this mean for LakeView as we move forward?
What is speaking in tongues? And what is prophecy? Why does the Bible say that prophecy is more beneficial in church than tongues if both are from the Holy Spirit? And what does this supernatural stuff have to do with us today? These are the questions we consider as Pastor Andy continues our series through 1 Corinthians, This is Church.
Pastor Andy continues the series through 1 Corinthians with one of most all-time well-loved passages of Scripture in history: 1 Corinthians 13, the “love” chapter. We’ll see that this passage isn’t about marriage, but rather about the pathway to spiritual greatness. Why is love the most excellent path to true spirituality? Listen and find out!
"The church is the Body of Christ." Those words are so familiar, almost too familiar, we sometimes forget the significance of them. As Pastor Andy continues our series through 1 Corinthians, This is Church, we’ll see that just as one Holy Spirit manifests His power through many different gifts, so the one Body of Christ is formed from many different parts, and the church is made up of many different people… but all according to the will and plan of God.
Pastor Andy kicks off our summer sermon series through the end of 1 Corinthians with one of the weirdest, most debated, most difficult to understand passages in the entire New Testament! As we study 1 Corinthians 11:2-16, we’ll see that it’s not so much about what role women should have in the church, but rather how women and men should go about fulfilling the role and ministry God has given to them.
