  • Saul To Paul – Part 2: Weakness – Hanging in a basketMay 7, 2016 - 9:30 pm

    In Acts 9 we have the story of Saul who would later become Paul.  Saul fully intended to continue wreaking havoc upon the Christians that had gone to Damascus when the persecutions broke out in Jerusalem.  Of course, his trip was interrupted by a bright light and Jesus’ presence as He questioned Saul the persecutor: “Why […]

    “Changing You Begins With Me” We all have times when we need to change.  New job.  New marriage. New kids.  New school.  New church. Saul encountered a time when he had to change. He had a Damascus Road experience. Who was Saul?  He was a Jew, born in Tarsus of Cilicia, but brought up Jerusalem.  He studied under Gamaliel and […]

  • The Gospel Is For AllFebruary 22, 2016 - 10:54 am

    Philip’s evanglization of a town in Samaria came to the attention of the apostles (Acts 8:4-17).  When Peter and John arrived they observed that the Holy Spirit had not completed the process: an important part of every Christian’s baptism (cf., Acts 2:38). Once the apostles laid hands upon the recent converts the Holy Spirit validated the advance […]

THE GREAT COMMISSION: “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.  Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,  and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” – Jesus (Matthew 28:18-20)

In his second presentation our guest speaker, Jason Allmon, focuses our attention upon baptizing new disciples in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.  What does this mean for us as we live out our lives as Jesus followers and as we are going into the world to make disciples?

THE GREAT COMMISSION: “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.  Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,  and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” – Jesus (Matthew 28:18-20)

The first presentation of our guest speaker, Jason Allmon, dives into the Great Commission in this challenging lesson about being obedient to Christ’s command to “go and make disciples of all nations.”

Cornelius

April 17, 2016 – Cornelius (Acts 10:1-11:18) – God brought together two unlikely individuals: The Jew, Peter and the Gentile Centurian of the Italian Regiment, Cornelius.  Tightly synchronized visions and travel plans came together at the end of Peter’s vision and a knock at the door.  Beyond Peter’s deduction that God no longer identified people as impure or unclean (Acts 10:28) his impromptu gospel sermon relied heavily upon the Jewish nature of the Messiah’s mission and ministry in Israel.  The sudden imparting of the Holy Spirit while Peter was speaking was a shocking surprise, especially to those ‘circumcised believers’ (Acts 10:45).  Indeed, when Peter returns to Jerusalem to explain the events of Caesarea his harshest critics are the ‘circumcised believers’ (Acts 11:2).  The story of Cornelius tells us that we serve a God who is not limited by our expectations and provincial visions; “…who was I,” Peter said, “to think that I could stand in God’s way?” (Acts 11:17).
