2017 offers plenty of cultural realities and ramifications for the Christian faith. We are continuing our progress through the book of Luke, and there is no shortage of truth that can apply directly to the challenges that we face. It’s the transformation that we experience through the person and work of Jesus that can effectively deal with those challenges.
It’s that time of year. The birth of Jesus is at the forefront of people’s thinking as we get closer to Christmas, and rightfully so. The reality that the God of the universe came to earth in the form of a human child is consequential to every human being across history. So, during this stretch each year, we hope to engage with you on what it means that Jesus came and how that directly impacts your life.
Jesus called His disciples to follow Him, but often we treat that statement as little more than a nice idea. What does it actually mean to follow Jesus? Beyond the meaning, how can we walk in that reality? This series seeks to unpack those ideas by diving into Luke 9 and seeing how Jesus would have us follow Him. If you’re new to the faith or in need of a good refresher, these sermons will ground you in the truth of following Christ.
Modern believers have reacted to the evangelistic endeavors of the last half-century by doing essentially nothing. In an attempt to avoid methodology, we have settled into a rut that involves little actual evangelism. So, as the men of Faith Church, we sought to bring this conversation into the fold. Our desire is to be a place of genuine gospel fire in Denver and Aurora, and we got the discussion rolling.
Faith Church has existed in the Denver/Aurora metropolitan area for over 50 years, and we long to discuss afresh who we are and who God has made us to be. We’ll dive into the foundational principles of how God has wired us, which is rooted in the belief that Jesus is Lord of all things. From there, we unpack our mission, Planting | Growing | Reaching, in detail. If you’re looking for more information about the church God has made us to be, you’re in the right place.
What does it look like to experience heart transformation? What does the Bible mean as it discusses the concept of the heart? These are the kinds of questions we’ll seek to answer in a series that focuses on the depths of who we are as humans. We’ll be weaving in and out of various sections of Scripture, and it will become apparent how much the God of the universe cares about the core of our personhood.
Paul’s letter to the Colossians offers a whole bunch of practical insight to the life of believers. But, most importantly, it directs us to the person and work of Christ. True joy and wholeness can only be found in the gospel, and our church continually seeks to grow in knowledge of and relationship with Christ. As Paul describes, a life of fulfillment and growth come through Christ alone, “rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith.”
The book of Daniel is full of well-known Sunday school stories. But, there’s a lot more depth to God’s work in the lives of Daniel and his friends, as well as King Nebuchadnezzar. This book helps us to rightly see what it looks like to live for God in a secular city and culture. Our hope is placed in Christ, who alone can change us and transform a major metropolitan area.
Romans offers major insight into many core theological realities of the Christian faith. Paul does not pull any punches as he unpacks weighty issues that will impact every follower of Christ. As always, we’re given a profound picture of the supremacy of Christ and how the gospel infiltrates every area of our lives.
One of the most encouraging sections of the whole Bible is the book of Psalms. It’s evident that the writers of the Psalms were real people with real questions, doubts, and joys. As believers, we’re continually reminded that our joy and our fulfillment can be found through Christ alone. These chapters also emphasize the reality that life can be difficult, but God is sovereign over all of it.
Jesus spoke frankly in His most famous sermon in Matthew 5-7. As His followers, we seek to know what it means to live like He described. In order to enjoy and abide in His words we need the gospel to transform our hearts. The Holy Spirit works in power in our lives to make us more like Him.
These sermons are not connected with any specific sermon series. However, they are all rooted in the gospel and the transforming work of Christ in our lives. We believe God works through the proclamation of His Word, so each of these are rooted in the Bible and the person and work of Jesus.
