FAITH OAKVILLE: Have you observed it? People, maybe even people close to you or who used to be closed to you, have changed. Anger, rage, bitterness, fear, anxiety, grief, and a host of other emotional health issues have increased to levels that have people shaking their heads in confusion. And Christians haven’t been immune. What is wrong? What is wrong with us? In this series titled It's Time for a Check-Up, we are taking time to do some evaluation and understand how the good news of the Gospel can break through to bring healing.
FAITH COLUMBIA: One book in the New Testament is credited for turning the soul of Augustine “upside-down.” The same book warmed the heart of John Wesley towards conversion. The very same book also turned a German monk, Martin Luther, from searching for assurance of his salvation to confidently declaring, “When I understood this text, the doors of paradise swung open, and I walked through.” This powerful, life-changing and profound book has been nicknamed “The Gospel According to Paul” but is better known as simply the book of Romans. Together we’re going to dig deep into Romans and mine out this beautiful letter that shows us the power and beauty of the Good News for all people. In this first series of three over the next couple years, we’ll focus on the gravity of sin and the depth of our declared righteousness in Jesus.
FAITH OAKVILLE: Life is full of twists, turns, and Pivots that often signal a change of direction or a new chapter in our lives. During our six-week Lenten journey on Sunday mornings, we will highlight a number of Pivots in Jesus’ life and discuss what they mean for Christians today.
FAITH OAKVILLE: This is not just Another series. “One Another” is a repeated expression in the New Testament, describing a culture where God’s people are to be connected to one Another in ways the world has not seen.
FAITH COLUMBIA: Look, I am about to do something new; even now it is coming. Do you not see it? With these words from Isaiah 43:19 God reminds His people that He has opened new doors, has provided ways when there seemed none, and led them where He wanted to go.
