I Love the Church
Nick brings this series to a personal level in the closing sermon. In this sermon, Nick explains several reasons why he personally loves Veritas and leaves us with a charge to dive in and make Veritas more than just a place to come on Sundays.
Being the Church
The Church is so much more than a place to visit on Sunday’s. We are called to be so much more than spectators in God’s plan. God has personally called us on mission to love and serve those around us in our neighborhoods, communities, jobs, and cities. Here the notion of church as a static entity that simply comes to gather is completely challenged in light of God’s plan to scatter the church as an extension of his personal love to others, through us.
Thinking Globally, Living Locally
As of recent, there has been much confusion as to exactly what the term “church” actually describes in the Bible. Far too often these arguments simply turn out to be a reaction to their dislike of their church growing up. Rather than continue the back and forth cycle, we look at scripture to give us clarity on what the church really is; from God’s master plan to display the magnificence of his wisdom through the person of Christ to the entire world, to the local expression of this work in a gathered body of people.
