Correcting Our Course – Acts 19:1-5

If you learn you are going the wrong way, it is in your best interest to turn around. In Acts 19, Paul encountered some men who learned that their baptism was no sufficient, so they corrected course, and were baptized in the name of Jesus. In spiritual matters, we must always make sure we are on the right road.

4/26/20 Worship – “Keep Moving Forward” – Philippians 3:13-14

Speaker: Justin P. Sivley

The lesson today provides us with a little encouragement to keep pressing on to the goal of being with Christ, no matter what circumstances we find ourselves in. Join us as we worship our God and praise our Lord in this worship service.

Parting Words in 1 Corinthians – 1 Cor. 16:5-24

Though final chapters of Paul’s letters often contain several names and greetings, they are not entirely without lessons that we can learn to help us in our walk with Christ. In the closing words of 1 Corinthians, we see a lesson about pursuing opportunities, preserving unity, and persevering in the faith.

Concerning the Collection for the Saints – 1 Corinthians 16:1-4

Before closing the letter, Paul writes a little bit about a collection that was to be taken up by the Corinthians. Why was it needed? How was it to be done? What does it mean for the church today? In tonight’s lesson, we answer these three questions as we consider the collection.

The Promise of His Resurrection – 1 Corinthians 15:1-34

The resurrection of Jesus Christ is central to what Christians believe. Without it, everything that we do is worthless. Paul, in 1 Corinthians 15, takes the opportunity to answer some who were giving in to the belief that resurrection wasn’t actually possible. Through his writing, he shows both the foolishness, and the consequences of such a belief.

Flee From Idolatry – 1 Corinthians 10 (sermon audio)

When Paul was asked a question about idolatry, he first dealt with it in terms of influence before others (1 Cor. 8-9), but in Chapter 10, he moves to deal specifically with the question of idolatry itself, and why Christians should not be involved in it in any way. While pagan idolatry may not be something we deal with as commonly in the church today, there are some principles we can apply that will help us to “do all to the glory of God.”

All Things to All Men – 1 Corinthians 9 (sermon audio)

It is certainly a good thing to take advantage of the rights and freedoms that we have. However, as Christians, we must also take others into account, and realize that sometimes, it may be better to temporarily surrender our rights for the sake of our brethren. This is the example Paul gave, as he explains in 1 Corinthians 9
