The Church That Cares
True religion does for others what they cannot do for you. A worthwhile faith makes a difference in the lives of people who cannot pay you back, and that’s ok because it is God who blesses and God who sees, and God who is honored by your sacrifice. When James wrote this letter, widows had no life insurance policies. There were no government-run programs to provide for them. The church was to step in and help.

    The Church That’s Devoted
    We often measure our health by looking at our physicality. We focus on things like weight, exercise, blood pressure, and sleep habits, all the while ignoring emotional and spiritual health.

    The Church That Perseveres

    In many parts of the world, persecution is a somewhat normal experience of the Christian faith. If you come to faith in Christ, you know that persecution will also come. A.W. Tozer once wrote, "To be right with God has often meant to be in trouble with men." Following Jesus comes with a cost. Are you willing to pay that cost?

    The Church That Goes

    After Jesus’ death and world-changing resurrection, Jesus told His followers to wait in Jerusalem for the promise of the Holy Spirit. This newly formed church had a mission, a purpose, had things to do, but before they could do it, they needed the power of the Holy Spirit. This first chapter in the book of Acts reminds us to think globally and act locallyThat’s what Faith Promise is all about. Will we be a church that goes or a church that stays?

    The Church That Loves
    Tim Kizziar wrote, "Our greatest fear as individuals and as a church should not be of failure but of succeeding at things in life that don't really matter." Love matters, and if love is not what we are about, then we're not acting like Christ's church. In this message, Pastor Kenneth will share how those who are loved love. People who receive the love of Christ extend the love of Christ.

    The Church That Runs

    The Christian life is a race and the author of Hebrews tells us what to do to finish the race well. He gives us three encouragements to keep going, which are easy to spot because they begin with the words "let us." In this sermon, Pastor Kenneth will unpack what it means to run the race well.

    The Church That Serves
    Philippians 2:1-11 is an amazing passage of scripture. Many consider it to be an early hymn or creed of the early church, maybe something that was sung or read together. It shows us the humility of Christ, the crucifixion of Christ, and the exultation of Christ, all in a few sentences. If Jesus did this for us, what are we to do for others?

    The Church That Surrenders
    If someone were to ask us, "Who is the Lord of Parkgate?" most of us would emphatically respond, "Jesus!" The trouble is, we know the answer should be Jesus in our heads - but we have trouble fully embracing the lordship of Christ in our hearts. Listen as Pastor Chelsea shares what it looks like to be the church by surrendering to the lordship of Jesus.
