Throughout the New Testament we encounter descriptions that depict the Christian Church as being The Body of Christ, and we see many instances where instructions and commands are not directed toward the individual, but rather the community. This week we look at the origin, design, plan behinds God’s structuring of this community, and we encounter the purpose and mission of God in uniting Christians together in this way.

As we close out our 'Remember' mini series we will unpack some of the Apostle Peter's writing and focus in on one particular aspect of the gospel that doesn't usually get a lot of attention but that we are to be in constant remembrance of and that is meant to alter everything about our lives.
Speaker: Matt Menzel Date: Mar 23 2014 Text: John 1:1-18, Philippians 2:1-11
Volumes have been written on humanity's need and desire to feel loved. Love motivates us, terrifies us, and can paralyze us. In a world like this the truth that 'God loves you' often falls on deaf ears. What does that even mean? How can we know that His love is for real? As we move toward the Easter season and the celebration of Jesus' resurrection we need to first pause and consider the fullest manifestation of God's love to us: the incarnation.
