Words That Matter!

Words That Matter!

Words that matter! There are certain theological words found in our Bible that are often hard to understand or are even down right intimidating, but they don't have to be. In fact, they need to be understood and embraced. This summer at Westside Christian Church, we want to take the fear and confusion out of several of these words...for they matter to our faith and our personal theology.

Have you ever thought about that? Your own personal theology? Theology in its simplest definition is the study of the nature of God. It is important as we grow in faith, that we understand what we believe and why, because we all have a personal theology whether we realize it or not. If we aren't working to establish ours through the truth of God's Word, our culture will do it for us. That is why we are taking the time to not only define these words biblically, but to also help us understand why they are important and how they apply to our lives. So, thank you for joining us here at WCC as we take the next 13 weeks to study, "Words That Matter!" We pray you will be blessed!

2 Timothy: ďFaithful At All CostĒ

 2 Timothy: ďFaithful At All CostĒ

Faithful, a familiar word that has been used in Christian circles for generations...but sometimes it is not easily understood and can be even harder to live out. The United States Marine Corp adopted the word in 1883 as part of its Latin motto, Semper Fidelis, which means, "always faithful." This phrase signified the dedication and loyalty that individual Marines have for Corps and Country.

In his second letter to Timothy, Paul encourages the young pastor to remain faithful to his calling and to Christ and to show himself a workman proved by God. In dark times, when the world seems against you and fear over takes your thoughts, it is not an easy thing to remain faithful. Now more than ever we need to be a people of faith; a church that remains faithful regardless of the circumstances we face. Paul's words to Timothy to guard the good deposit of faith that was entrusted to him needs to be heard in this present generation.

I thank you for joining us at Westside Christian Church this morning as we study together the book of 2 Timothy and strive to become "Faithful At All Cost!"

2 Samuel: After God's Heart

2 Samuel: After God

2 Samuel is the continuing saga of David as he becomes King of Israel and the events that unfolded during his reign. David is known as ďa man after Godís own heartĒ because, although he sinned greatly and made mistakes, he acknowledged those failures and repented before God.

Repent means to turn away from sin and toward righteousness. A righteousness that can only come through faith in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Our Heavenly Father knows we are not perfect, just as David wasnít perfect, yet like David, we can choose to acknowledge our sin and humbly seek forgiveness and God will restore our relationship with Him. David is a lot like us; enjoying the blessing of God one moment and facing the consequences of bad choices the next. But through it all, he was still a man after Godís heart...and we can be too.

Iím glad you could join us for the continuing story of David and all we can learn from him in this continuing series on 2 Samuel: ďAfter Godís Heart!Ē

Come Alive

Come Alive

More than two thousand years ago, Godís plan of redemption altered the world forever. The power of sin and death was broken through the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ that first Easter.

Death was defeated. True life, spiritual life, Godís life triumphed. Over the next week, we will journey together through the events of Holy Week and come alive to Godís story, which transforms our lives and our world by His grace.

Our Holy Week journey will include coming alive to Jesusís life, sacrifice, and power. The life Jesus offers to each of us is reason to celebrate! It is reason to respond to Godís open arms and His invitation to draw near to Him.

Iím so glad you are here with us as we begin to experience the life-giving truth of Holy Week and of Godís power to transform each one of us into a new creation. To find out what it means to ďCome AliveĒ in Jesus and discover who we really are in Christ. Welcome!
