Faith and Freedom
One of the most fundamental values in our culture today is the concept of freedom. Though Christianity is often misunderstood as a stifling and oppressive system full of religious rules, Galatians 5:1 tells us that it is "For freedom that Christ has set us free." Join us in this 4 week series as we look at how an identity rooted in Jesus' life can truly set us free in each area of ours.
How an Unearned Faith Sets Us Free to Find a Deep Sense of Self Worth
October 15 | 1 Corinthians 4:1-7
An unearned faith sets us free to find a deep sense of self worth by relocating the basis of our identity in something that is received rather than achieved
How a Holistic Faith Sets Us Free to Find Purpose in Everything
October 22 | Luke 9:23-25
A holistic faith sets us free to find purpose in everything by denying ourselves as the ultimate purpose in order to become a conduit for God’s purpose. A good and creative God becomes our filter by which we see all of his creation.
How an Exclusive Faith Sets Us Free to be Tolerant of Others
October 29 | Colossians 1:15-23
An exclusive faith sets us free to be tolerant of others by acknowledging the preeminence of Christ as our hope for fullness in life rather than ourselves. Because we are not pointing people to ourselves, we are freed to see people as God does.
HOW A JUST FAITH SETS US FREE TO PURSUE JUSTICE FOR EVERYONE
November 5 | Micah 6:6-8
A just faith sets us free to pursue justice for everyone by connecting God's character to our behavior. We are called to pursue justice for all because we are created in the image of a God that values justice.
