Sermons from October 2017

Finding Your Role in God’s Big Project

“We have to find our role in God’s big project, the one that stretches across the border from this life into the next.” (Cornelius Plantinga Jr.) In this message from Nehemiah 1, guest speaker John Waldrop teaches how revival came to God’s people through the obedience of Nehemiah, and the example it gives to the church today.

Be Transformed!

Grace that does not transform our lives on the outside and the inside is not the grace of God received through faith in Jesus. It is a weak and worldly “grace” that does not deliver us from sin and death. Give all your body and mind to the worship of God. Leave nothing for yourself, but trust God to give you infinitely more that you can imagine.

Sola Scriptura (The Scriptures Alone)

October 2017 marks the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, and we are taking some time to focus on the doctrines of the Five Solas that emerged during this time. In this message, Scott Boerckel (Senior Pastor of East White Oak Bible Church, Carlock, IL) teaches from 2 Timothy 3:12-4:4, on the dynamic shift the Reformation brought about by insisting that the church’s authority comes from the Scriptures Alone (Sola Scriptura).

Sola Gratia (Grace Alone)

October 2017 marks the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, and Bethany Baptist is taking some time to focus on five core doctrines that emerged during this time, the Five Solas. In this message, Sola Gratia (Grace Alone), Pastor Ritch teaches that God’s grace is His undeserved, unearned favor upon sinful man through the atoning death of Jesus.
