Intriguing quotes from a book on the Apostles’ Creed

creed blurb

Over our annual summer family vacation I dipped into a few books, one of which was entitled, "What Christians Ought to Believe: An Introduction to Christian Doctrine through the Apostles' Creed." As someone who didn't grow up in church and has never belonged to a church that recited any creeds, I found this book to be intriguing and encouraging! Since many of my friends an...

Slack

slack blurb

Pastor Holland here with a short and sweet post about Slack! I just wanted to write a quick summary of what Slack is, why we use it, and how to get connected on it. If you've never heard of Slack before now, then all the more reason to spend the next 3-4 minutes reading this post!

By His Wounds We Are Healed

I will not stop praying for a physical healing. I hope that my physical healing will bring Him honor and glory in some way. And if He chooses to not heal me, I will still praise Him for the goodness in my life....

How to Read the Bible

how to read bible SMALL

The Bible is a wonderful and beautiful gift from God to us; his very own words, which are an extension of his very own self. To read the Bible is to hear from God. To know the Bible well is to know our God well. And the Bible itself makes clear that this is impossible apart from the grace of God and the Spirit of God. It is only through God’s grace in Christ that we can ...

Several people have asked me what the story is, so I'm writing this short blog to fill in some gaps for people trying to understand what’s going on, and why it matters for our growing and changing city. I don’t have all the details, know all the answers, o...

Discipleship Centered on Remembering

tree light blurb

All throughout the Old Testament, there is a call to “remember.” From setting up the Eben-ezer after the Lord defeated Joshua’s enemies, to establishing the Passover as a memorial to recall God’s powerful deliverance in the Exodus, and then a repeated call to remember the Lord all throughout Deuteronomy as Israel is about to enter the Promised Land. The people of G...

Why We Fight: God's Counsel for the Ongoing War with Sin

tall grass small

It has been stressed from the beginning of Holland's series on discipleship that the constant “death to self” is a vital part of our life in Christ. This is because when we are born again through faith, our hearts become irreversibly, unshakably devoted to Jesus Christ, and hostile to sin, but our bodies remain corrupt....
