Mission to the Masses
AM Sermon: Anthony Rex (Acts 8:1-13) – As soon as the mission encountered persecution (Stephen) the disciples spread and took the gospel with them. The first encounter we have is with Philip, who takes the gospel to the Samaritan world.
Suffering In Mission
AM Sermon – Anthony Rex (Acts 7:51-60)
When fully engaged in the mission of Christ and presenting the message we will run in to those who vehemently oppose this effort. Most often the opposition comes from those who have their lives offended by the message. Being steadfast requires being anchored in reality, faith, and hope.
Disruption In Mission
AM Sermon – Anthony Rex (Acts 5:1-11)
The mission hits a few bumps in the road. Both from within (Ananias and Sapphira) as members become misguided, and from without, as local leaders despise the disruptions.
Strength of the Mission
AM Sermon – Anthony Rex (Acts 4:1-12)
The mission of Christ offers the fullness of life, however, it is an exclusive offer. It is only found through the gospel. The gospel must be presented, both as what we know and what we’ve experienced. In sharing both we find the strength of the mission.
Target of the Mission
AM Sermon: Matt Thomas (Acts 3:1-10) – In this account we first see an outcast cared for by Peter and John. This event stirs up the religious elite and paves the way for the gospel to be preached to them as well. The target of the mission is both the insider and the outsider.
People of the Mission
AM Sermon – Anthony Rex (Acts 2:42-47)
From all walks of life people come together to share in discipleship, worship, fellowship, and radical giving of themselves because the mission makes you that kind of person.
Message of the Mission
AM sermon – Anthony Rex (Acts 2:14-36)
There is only one message this mission proclaims: the gospel (the death, burial, resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ). The mission hinges on what people think about Him. Proclaiming Him is the only way.
Power For The Mission
AM Sermon – Anthony Rex (Acts 2:1-4)
The mission of Christ is bigger than anything one person or even a group of people can do on their own. We limit the mission of Christ the moment we try to do it on our own. It is by and through the power of the Holy Spirit that this mission can be accomplished.
Making of a Mission
AM Sermon – Anthony Rex (Acts 1:1-11)
The ascension of Jesus is the key event in setting off His mission on earth. This mission is accomplished through the church, and must be understood, believed, and fully bought in to.
