Stewardship: God Gives

You own nothing, it’s all on loan from God. God created the earth you live on, the air you breath, and even your own soul. It’s all a gift that you’ve been given to govern justly and steward for God. In this sermon from the Doctrine series, pastor Mark Driscoll will challenge people to stop using their time, talent, and treasure to serve themselves—and start using them to serve God.

Worship: God Transforms

Everyone is a worshiper. We all have people or things that we love, sacrifice for, and are our number one affection. The main question each person should answer is this—Do you worship created things, or the Creator? God deserves to be worshiped. He created everyone and everything. Our place as the creation is to worship our Creator. Pastor Mark Driscoll investigates the many idols that we are completely oblivious too, and shows that every problem in life is, at its core, a worship problem.

Creation – God Makes

“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth”. That’s the opening line of Genesis. But how old is the earth? Where did everything come from? And are we all just evolved beings from a totally different species? The doctrine of creation is a big topic for debate among Christians and non-Christians alike. Pastor Mark Driscoll teaches on it in the third week of our sermon series, Doctrine.

Revelation: God Speaks

How do we know who God is and what he is like? Some speculate about His nature through religion or philosophy, but Christians don’t have to. We have the Bible, which is God speaking to all of us. How did we get the Bible? How can we trust that it is accurate today to its original writings? Pastor Mark Driscoll explains this in the second week of our sermon series, Doctrine – What Christians Should Believe.
