The Stability of the Believer (Psalm 1) - Nathan Rages

This Sunday, we talk about Psalm 1, which contrasts the spiritual stability of the believer with the emptiness of the lost person's life. The Psalm teaches 5 things about the Christian: 1. He has been "planted" in the place of blessing. 2. He is always fruitful. 3. He avoids bad influences. 4. He consistently meditates on Scripture. 5. He lives in the way that God knows.

The Christian's Identity - Nathan Rages

This Sunday's sermon is about every Christian's basic identity, how we think about ourselves compared to other people.  Our identity must be in Christ alone and not in other demographic distinctions that separate groups of people.

Delighting in the Trinity - Nathan Rages





We need to see the doctrine of the Trinity, not just as a mysterious theological puzzle, but as precious truth that all Christians should celebrate.

1. It's the unique foundation of Christianity.
2. It shows God has always been relational (involved in personal relationships).
3. It shows God has always overflowed with love for others.
4. It shows how the whole Godhead participates in our salvation.
5. It shows the privilege of being God's adopted children.
