Walk Humbly
Today Pastor Kevin teaches the fourth installment of his series entitled, "#MoreThanAHashtag".  As a sign of genuine religion ( Mic 6:8 ) humility is necessary to enter God's kingdom.  When we come to Christ as sinners, we must come in humility. We acknowledge that we are paupers and beggars who come with nothing to offer Him but our sin and our need for salvation.  We recognize our lack of merit and our complete inability to save ourselves.  Then when He offers the grace and mercy of God, we accept it in humble gratitude and commit our lives to Him and to others.  The clearest picture of humility in the Bible, indeed, in history, is Jesus Christ.  He modeled godly humility for us.

    Do Something!
    Our world is not as it should be. There is pain, evil, and injustice all around us. In the age of social media, it is easier than ever to stay informed about all sorts of injustices, but is sending a tweet, posting a selfie, or sharing a video about an inspiring cause really all it takes to make a difference in the world?  Or is it possible that justice is about something much more than a hashtag?  In this 4-week series, Pastor Kevin Ibanez challenges us to not just post about the injustices around them, but to actually do something about them by loving mercy, acting justly, and walking humbly.  Sermon PowerPoint Slides are available here.

    Defending the Faith
    In today's message, Pastor Kevin will be teaching from the Epistle of Jude. We will see that God calls on us to defend the faith against those who deny Christian morality.  Our doctrine and our practice are fused together; both must be guarded from threats outside and inside the church.  We will also see our need to recognize that false teachers fuel division within the church and how we are to build up ourselves in the faith as we also strengthen others to stand firm in the Gospel together.

    A Christ-Centered Hope
    Today Pastor Kevin is returning to "The Gospel Project".  As we examine a few of the New Testament epistles before reaching the Book of Revelation, we will learn how we are to live today in light of our future.  First up in this session from 1 Thessalonians, we will see the importance of living with Christian hope--a hope that looks forward to the resurrection, Christ's return, and the final judgement.  When Jesus returns, He will raise His people from the dead and judge the wicked.  This future gives us hope to endure whatever comes our way today and also the grounds to encourage one another for faithful living.
