How do we read Scripture? A Christ-centered hermeneutic

Speaker: Al Stoltzfus
Topics: Christ preeminent, Faith, fullness, Obedience

As followers of Jesus, we seek to interpret all of Scripture through the life, teaching, death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus and in faith follow Him as Savior and Lord. Only in following the preeminent Jesus do we discover the fullness of life as God intended.  Text: Colossians 1:15-23

Says who? The authority of Scripture

Speaker: Brian Martin
Topics: Anabaptist, authority, Scripture

To honor God’s Word is one thing. Inviting the Word to speak with authority to shape everyday life is quite another. In launching this series on Anabaptist identity, we begin with a foundational faith value– the authority of Scripture.  Text: 2 Timothy 3:1-4:5

What’s in a Name? – Week 4 – Emmanuel

Speaker: Brian Martin
Topics: Emmanuel, Fear, presence

The Christmas story is often romanticized and the images we hold may be far from a first century reality. A name of Christ in this story is “God with us” which carries significant meaning one must consider. Text: Matthew 1:18-25

What’s in a Name? – Week 3 – Light of the World

Speaker: Al Stoltzfus
Topics: belief, faith & unbelief, hope and healing

With this bold declaration, “I am the Light of the world” Jesus draws a life and death contrast between those who believe in him and those who challenge his person and mission. The name “Light of the World” teaches us that Jesus is the one we must believe in and follow to experience the fullness of life in the presence of God.   Text: John 1:1-5 and 8:12-59

What’s in a Name? Week 1 – The Word

Speaker: Brian Martin
Topics: beginning, eternal, logos

ekJohn’s Gospel begins with a beautiful poetic declaration of Christ, ascribing Him the name “Word.” This is much more than flowery poetry to grace our Christmas cards. Consider the weight ascribed to the “Word” becoming flesh and making His dwelling among us.  Text: John 1: 1-18
