Solid Food

Heb. 5:13-14, “Everyone who lives on milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, since he is a child.  But solid food is for the mature, for those who have their powers of discernment trained by constant practice to distinguish good from evil.”

Here in the South when we see snow coming we run to buy milk & bread.  Why? Because when we see trouble coming, we know we need to stock up and prepare.  Not just milk for our children, but bread – solid food for adults.  In every age, every generation, people experience trouble.  We are no exception.  How can we be prepared?  By learning and living by every word that comes from the mouth of God – the Bible.

This study will focus on the Books of I & II Corinthians.  They provide solid spiritual food that will nourish and feed God’s people.  Through this teaching and the training you will grow in faith, hope, and love, in wisdom, spiritual power, and discernment so that you will be prepared in every situation.  Please join us Sundays at 11:00 AM or listen online on our Sermons page and get fed with solid spiritual food!

Christmas Sermon Series

Prophecy & the Incarnation

The Old Testament is filled with prophecies of the future.  There are over 300 specific prophecies about Jesus.  Many have to do with the circumstances surrounding the incarnation. It is amazing to read them and see how they came true.  Jesus truly is “God with us.”  We’re ending 2014 with this series of teachings examining the prophecies, the prophets, and the fulfillment as God came to earth to save a hurting and dying world. Please join us Sunday mornings at 11:00 AM for this special holiday series.  Nursery and Children’s Ministry are provided for children up to age 10.  Dress is always casual.

 

Book of Acts

Blacktop Games sponsored on Saturday by Christian Assembly, Comunidades de Formacion Cristiana, United for Christ Church, Child Evangelism Fellowship, and Braggtown Baptist was a great success! Approximately 500 people participated in the event including celebrity guests Phil Ford of UNC and Chris Carawell of Duke, members of Durham Fire, EMS, & Police, and our own Rev. Kevin Ross, aka Irvin D. Clown, of Ross Family Ministries. It was an amazing representation of Jesus’ Church in Durham and everyone did a great job of loving our neighbor!

“And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.”
John 1:14

Several years ago singer Joan Osborne asked the musical question, “What if God was one of us?” What if God already answered that question in person? What if Jesus was both God and human as the Bible says? It’s a big idea and one that deserves our attention. If it is true then we might need to rethink our ideas about God, nature, human existence, life, death, good, evil, body, soul, spirit, and what else might be out there beyond our experience. As the world considers the birth of a very special baby at Christmas, we’re going to consider what the incarnation meant to mankind then, and especially to us today. Come and join us for the conclusion of this series this Sunday at 9 & 11 AM.

Happy Thanksgiving!
