United: Discovering our Unity in Christ

Put On Self-Giving Love

Tim Theule | Ephesians 5:1-8 | 2/23/2020

This message deals with sexuality, parental discretion is advised.

'Walk in love' the Apostle Paul says in Ephesians 5.  We are living in a time of great confusion about what love is and isn't.  Is love just a feeling?  Is love sexual desire?  Or is love something more?  We explore these issues together as we seek to understand the Bible's teaching in Ephesians 5:1-8.  

The Words We Speak

Miles Nelson | Ephesians 4:20-32 | 2/16/2020

Do the words I say really matter THAT much? Shouldn’t I be free to speak how I want? We all ask questions like this, but God gives us clear instruction in Ephesians 4:25 and 29 about how to use our words as we live in community with one another.

On with the New Self

Tim Theule | Ephesians 4:20-32 | 2/9/2020

We're talking in this message about what it means to 'put on the new self' in Ephesians 4:25-32 as we continue our UNITED study of Ephesians.

Off With The Old Self

Tim Theule | Ephesians 4:17-24 | 2/2/2020

As we continue our UNITED series in Ephesians, the Apostle Paul reminds us that 'walking in a manner worth of our calling in Christ' means not walking according to our desires, but walking in purity.  

How the Church Works and Grows

Tim Theule | Ephesians 4:11-16 | 1/26/2020

How is the local church supposed to work?  How does the local church grow?  In Ephesians 4, Paul gives us God's blueprint for the church as we continue on in our UNITED series.

Grace Gifts

Tim Theule | Ephesians 4:4-12 | 1/19/2020

The unity of the church depends on the employment of the diverse gifts by every member in the church.  This is where our UNITED study of the Ephesians takes us next!  

One

Tim Theule | Ephesians 4:1-6 | 1/12/2020

Ephesians 4:3 calls the people of God to be 'eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.'  Last week we saw the WAY we are called to maintain unity through humility, gentleness, and forbearing love.  In this message, we see the REASON we are called to maintain unity.

Walk in a Manner Worthy

Tim Theule | Ephesians 4:1-6 | 1/5/2020

We continue our UNITED series in the book of Ephesians with a look at the pivot point of the book in Ephesians 4:1-3 where we learn that Gospel living is joyful our response to all God's Gospel blessings.  

Becoming Before Obeying

Ben Collins | Ephesians 3:20-4:1 | 12/29/2019

We continue our UNITED study of the book of Ephesians with a recap of Ephesians 1–3 and we will notice something striking. Many people approach the Bible as a guide to life. It tells them how to live. However, Paul hasn’t given the Ephesians a single command in these first three chapters. Why? Because Christians don’t obey to become, but since they’ve become they obey.

The Household of God

Ben Collins | Ephesians 2:19-22 | 12/1/2019

We continue our UNITED study of the book of Ephesians with a look at Ephesians 2:19–22, where Paul shows the Ephesians the implications of Christ's work for their identity and ultimate purpose. 

He Himself is our Peace

Tim Theule | Ephesians 2:11-18 | 11/24/2019

We continue our UNITED study of the book of Ephesians with a look at Ephesians 2:11-18, where we see that, not only does Jesus heal our alienation from God, He also heals our alienation from one another.  

Saved by Grace for Good Works

Tim Theule | Ephesians 2:8-10 | 11/17/2019

The Gospel is utterly unique and unlike any other world religion.  The Gospel stands in stark contrast to the meritocracies of this world.  In this message, we explore what it means to be saved by sheer grace and how that should impact our lives.

Saved by God

Tim Theule | Ephesians 2:1-7 | 11/10/2019

As we continue our UNITED series in the book of Ephesians, we launch into chapter 2 where we see the reality that our spiritual condition by nature apart from God is way, way worse than we think or feel, but also God's cure by grace is way, way better than we ever dared hope. 

What God Wants You to Know

Miles Nelson | Ephesians 1:15-23 | 10/27/2019

Paul prayed a lot, so why was this one recorded for us to read thousands of years later? Why is Paul praying and what is he praying for? As we explore Ephesians 1:15-23 we see not only the why and the what of Paul's prayer but also the confidence he has in prayer.

The Blessings of God's Salvation

Tim Theule | Ephesians 1:3-14 | 10/20/2019

As we continue our UNITED series in the book of Ephesians, in this message we work through four blessings of God's salvation in Ephesians 1:3-14. 

The Beauty of God's Salvation

Tim Theule | Ephesians 1:3-14 | 10/13/2019

In the second message of our UNITED study of the book of Ephesians, we explore 'The Beauty of God's Salvation' in Ephesians 1:3-14, a text rich and thick with truth for our lives.  

Ephesians and Us

Tim Theule | Ephesians 1:1-2 | 10/6/2019

In this kick off message to our UNITED series centered around the book of Ephesians we explore why this letter is worth our time and attention as followers of Jesus in the 21st Century.
