Baptism Service
Oct
28
9:00 AM09:00

Baptism Service

Our Baptism service will be held on Sunday, October 28th in both the 9AM and 11AM services. 

If you would like to be baptized during our Baptism Service, please sign up below.

A note from Tommy:
Baptism is a new start. It is a declaration and an affirmation of what the Gospel says to us all, that tomorrow doesn’t have to be like it is today. It is a public and outward display of what is going on in your heart. When we enter into the waters, we bring with us all of the weight of the decisions that we have made, the sins we have committed, the ways that we have not lived up to what God declared us to be. We stand in the water and declare that Jesus was right, that his message of grace has set us free and saved us from all that has enslaved us. We plunge into the water and are ritually cleansed. We raise up out of the waters as if we had been given a fresh new start. All who are standing around are witnesses to our public profession of faith through baptism will no longer view us as we were before. Our old self remains dead, under those ripples and waves. Our past offenses are no longer brought up. Our old habits and ways are now fresh battles that the community of Jesus will help you fight. You are seen as a new creation, with new direction and new purpose. 

     Baptism is for all those who are done with their old ways, their old life, their old purposeless rituals. We come together and witness this new start, and celebrate with you. We also commit ourselves to your healing, and your growing in the gospel. Just as the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus is our hope for all the world and mankind, so baptism is the declaration that we are likening ourselves to him, and we desire to be born again to a new and living hope.

Reasoning: On Hell
Jul

7:00 PM19:00

Reasoning: On Hell

This year will be starting a new series that will seek to help you think through some of your most pressing questions regarding God, the Scriptures, and the theological idea that modern Christians tend to struggle with the most. We are calling it “Reasoning.” This is a 1.5-2 hour session that will include an extended Q&A time to try and answer your questions regarding how to think about the topic of the evening. It will start with Pastor Tommy spending some time helping us work through the components of the idea, how thoughts on that particular topic have shifted throughout church history, and what pieces are essential to building a reasonable way to view that subject.

Our first “Reasoning” session will be July 31st, and it will be called “Reason: On Hell.”

  • Will God torture non-Christians in fire for all eternity?
  • Will everyone find themselves in a blissful utopia when they die?
  • What/where is heaven, anyway?
  • Was heaven/hell even a part of Jewish theology in the time of Christ (and why does that matter)?”

No other subject causes more confusion and division in the church today than the topic of hell. We are going to dive in and ask the simple question that most Christians are entirely ignoring: “What did first century Palestinian Jewish Christians, like Paul, really believe was possible?” And from there, we will work our way out and try and make sense of how we ended up where we are, and possibly allowing us to see some areas that need correcting along the way.

Will you join us?

Childcare will be provided, but you must RSVP below if you plan to attend (even if you don’t need childcare).
