God's holiness is revealed to us in the book of Leviticus, culminating in the Day of Atonement which is the shadow of the once-for-all atonement by our holy Savior.

Paul introduces his letter to Titus and wastes no ink in so doing: as he writes his salutation he essentially describes the character of the local church.

The foundation of all worship is an understanding of the holiness of God. This truth is observed even in how God reveals to Moses his prescriptions for how his people are to worship him.

The conclusion to the Sermon on the Mount is a clear and helpful illustration that distills the entirety of the Gospel of the Kingdom down to its essential truth. We must know the preacher for who he is. We must comprehend the sermon for what it says. We must understand the choice which lay before us.

Jesus is the judge of all mankind, yet there are those who will appeal his verdict on the last day. His reply will be a final and sobering cry of justice that he never knew them.

The second warning of the Sermon on the Mount has to do with a danger which poses a great threat to the souls of mankind. We all must beware of false teachers, for they disguise themselves in order to deceive in order that other might join them in the fire and destruction that awaits them.

Loving

Love for others is to be a hallmark trait of Christians, and we believe that our love for others begins with our love for God himself. This is why our commitment is to prioritize knowing God in his Word so that we might fear him, love him, obey him, and love those around us as we ought.

When Jesus was asked what was the greatest commandment, his said this:

“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.”
(Matthew 22:37–40 ESV)
 

Proclaiming

The Apostle Paul specified the theme of his message in Colossians 1:28 - “Him we proclaim, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone mature in Christ.”

And it is our solemn hope that we would do everything possible to make Jesus Christ known in what we teach - to children, to our community and to our congregation from the pulpit. He is the Lord of all, and must be proclaimed with priority and power. His perfection and deity, and his work on the cross and his resurrection form the realities that we seek to make known - both in our teaching and in our living.

Whether in the pulpit via expository preaching, or in a children's class with a familiar story, we seek to faithfully herald the truth of God alone.

Serving

The ultimate act of service was done for us when Jesus died in our place on the cross. And we draw strength from his grace towards us that we might demonstrate grace in service to others. This reality is perhaps nowhere better described than in 1 John 4:11 - 

“Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another."

May our knowledge of God and our desire to exalt Christ lead us to serve others through the power of the Spirit.
