This past Sunday I preached a sermon entitled, "Will you be the Church?" from Matthew 5:1-16. You can watch or listen here. I hope it encourages you to surrender to King Jesus and shine for King Jesus in your area of the world. Here's a snapshot written by Eric Ball from our church blog:
As we conclude Pastor Tony's 3 week sabbatical, Pastor Doug gives us a wake up call to the reality of what the church really is. Do we believe the church is a building? Do we believe the church to be a business - dispensing religious goods and services? No! God's people are the church. Pastor Doug uses Matthew 5:1-16 to show us that we are the church and that we are called to gather together for the purpose of going out into the world - not to be passive pewsitters!
