This Is My Story

This Is My Story

As the new year approaches our thoughts begin to reflect on what the past year has been like as we anticipate the coming of a fresh new year. As 2015 quickly approaches, let us put aside the empty promises or “resolutions” that we honestly have no intention of following through on and rather consider our story. The story of Jesus as He called us out of a faithless past and into an eternal future. The story of how Jesus saved us from our sin and set our feet upon a firm foundation of faith. The story of God redeeming what had been lost and renewing our true identity in Him. Join me today as we explore “This Is My Story,” a journey of recognizing our past but not being defined by it. Of celebrating the day Jesus took hold of our lives...for we were never the same again. And finally, of identifying the change that Jesus has brought in each of our lives. May His story be seen in ours every day! ~Pastor Nathan Cherry

The Light of Christmas

The Light of Christmas

Merry Christmas! From all of us at Westside Christian Church we pray the Lord’s best for you and your family. With only a few short days until that magical day, let us pause and remember why, or better yet who, we are celebrating. “For to us a child is born, to us a son is given...And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” (Isaiah 9:6) But before that powerful “Christmas” statement comes the following words, “The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned.” (Isa. 9:2) For many, this time of year is full of darkness; loneliness, abandonment, abuse, regret, fear, doubt and bad memories. But a light has dawned, a ray of hope for all people who will accept this child from our Heavenly Father as “The Light Of Christmas.” May that light shine on you, and through you, this year with the hope of Jesus’ love, forgiveness and freedom. ~Pastor Nathan Cherry

The Gospel of John...that you may believe

The Gospel of John...that you may believe

As we begin the Gospel of John, let me take you to the end of the book, because it is there that John tells us WHY he wrote this book: “But these (events) are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in His name.” (John 20:31) John wrote his gospel with a very specific purpose in mind - to show that Jesus Christ is God in the flesh. It is not so much a biography as it is a theological argument. It is by believing that Jesus Christ is indeed the Son of the Living God that we find life….real life, eternal life, a transformed life! Every event and every word from Jesus is designed to show us that Jesus is God, from His miraculous signs to His astounding words and claims. I hope you will join us for the entire study of this amazing book and bring your friends! Let’s continue our journey together with the Gospel of John: “…That You May Believe.” ~Frank Mascaro

What’s On Your Mind?

What’s On Your Mind?

In this series, Pastor Frank will be addressing common questions people have regarding Christianity and the Bible. What's on Your Mind??

Overcomer!

Overcomer!

Welcome to Westside Christian Church. Hopefully today you are enjoying the blessings of our Lord Jesus Christ. But perhaps you joined us this morning with some heavy burdens; a heart full of pain for a loss, disappointment or struggle. We want you to know it’s ok. You are not expected to have it all together here. In fact, if you are living the perfect life with no worries, stress or problems...than we are probably not the church for you. You see Jesus tells us that in this world we will have trouble, but we are to take heart for our God has overcome the world. (John 16:33) Isn’t that great news? Whether you feel it or not; whether you believe it or not...it’s true. And that’s what we will be discussing this morning as we dive into “Overcomer: Living A Life Of Victory!” I do hope you will be inspired and challenged through God’s Word this morning, for victory is ours through Jesus Christ! ~Pastor Nathan Cherry

The Kingdom Parables

The Kingdom Parables

The Old Testament ends with an expectant note—the return of Elijah the prophet to precede the coming of the Messiah and His kingdom. After 400 years of silence, John the Baptist arrives on the scene in fulfillment of the voice of Elijah as he announced, “Repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand” (Matt. 3:2). God was about to do something new! The King was coming and with the King comes the kingdom! The Gospel of Matthew presents Jesus as this King and part of His mission was to proclaim the arrival of this kingdom—but upon Israel’s rejection of Jesus and His message, there is a turning point. The kingdom will not come through power as the Jewish people looked for and anticipated, but it would come from the work of God within the hearts of people—in a way unexpected by the world. Join us as we journey through the Kingdom Parables in chapter 13 of Matthew’s Gospel and gain a new understanding of God at work to redeem the world through His Son, Jesus Christ! ~Pastor Frank Mascaro

Easter 2014

Back To The Future

Back To The Future

As we begin a New Year, it is a good time to stop and take stock of ourselves and see where we are in our lives regarding our relationship with Christ. One of the things that comes with that kind of examination is to look back. It’s hard to know where you are and where you are going if you don’t know where you have been. It is the lessons from the past—positive and negative—that help us to forge a better present and future, especially if we learn from those experiences. So, that is what we will be doing for the next few weeks. We are going “Back to the Future” to learn the Old Testament lessons from the nation of Israel that relate to our own, individual spiritual lives and how we can benefit from their experiences, whether positive or negative. I hope that it will encourage us to be more focused on Jesus and our relationship to Him in 2014. ~Pastor Frank Mascaro

The God Who Is

The God Who Is

Happy New Year! The Pastoral Staff at Westside Christian Church would like to wish you and your family the very best in 2014 and are excited about all God will be doing in us and through us in this new year. Speaking of which, What are your new year resolutions? Many people have many different ideas of what they would like to accomplish in the new year and perhaps you are one of them. But like some many good intentioned folk, perhaps your new year resolutions end up just being empty promises that bring us down rather than lift us up...and perhaps you’ve already broken your new year resolutions. But this year, I would like to encourage you to do something different. Instead of making empty promises, perhaps we should simply resolve in our hearts to seek God. This in itself may be a huge challenge but I would encourage you to seek God in a whole new way. Instead of forming God into our image, perhaps we should seek the true God who is and what He has in store for us in this new year. Join me this morning as we seek God. Not the God we want but rather the God who is. It will radically shake up our world...and that’s a good thing! ~Pastor Nathan Cherry
