Yielded Followership #5 – God-Ward Yielding

Monday, May 25th, 2009

Our highest Authority is God Himself. (As the One Who created everything, and appoints all other authorities, this makes sense!) We must commit to obeying God and following His truth no matter what. Audio and notes for the Basic Disciplines for Believers series can be found HERE.

Genesis 1:26-28 – Let Us Make Man in Our Image: Mankind is Special!

Monday, May 25th, 2009

Friday, May 15th, 2009

Proverbs 31:10-31 is not a list – it is more like a movie, showing us what a godly wife and mother is “in action.” Pastor Sean “pinch hits” for a sick Pastor Kevin today!

Tuesday, May 12th, 2009

This is a brief introduction to the Biblical view of authority from Romans 13:1-2:

1 Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. 2 Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves.
