Have you ever wondered how so many people end up falling out of church or end up going back to their old life styles?

What does this truly look like in our everyday lives? God's plan for this is simple and amazing and we get to be part of it! If we are to move forward, we must embrace this mission that God has given us!

Are you living with purpose? Do you feel fulfilled in life?

We were created by God with purpose, but that does not mean you are living it out. We are on a mission and when we embrace it, that is when we truly are fulfilled in life. This mission is simple and very achievable if we apply the plan that God has given us in scripture.

Are you ready to embrace the incredible mission that God created for you? Are you ready to live the incredible, fulfilling life that God has for you? It is found in Acts 9 and it is very exciting that God allows us to be part of it. We must move FORWARD with a mission!

Pastor Tony Liuzzo (Lead Pastor) - John 13:33-35 (John 3:16; 13:33-35; 15:13; 1 John 1:6-7; 3:1; 4:8-9 & 12; 1 Corinthians 13:4 & 8; Romans 5:8; Galatians 5:22-23; Hebrews 10:24-25)

 

If someone had to describe you, what would they say?

We are often described by the dominant characteristics that stand out about us. Our identity comes from what we do or how we act and live. 

In John 13, Jesus was preparing to leave the disciples and He was giving them some last instructions. Jesus was teaching the disciples about their identity. He was speaking to them as the family of God and what they represented. Jesus commanded them that the world would know that they were His by the love they lived out towards each other. Not just any love, but God’s love!

This love would change the world if the world could experience it through us! Do you live out God’s love? Are you ready to embrace the identity that God has called us to live? We must move Forward with the love of God!

 

FORWARD >> Forward with God's Love

John 13:33-35

Defining God's love:
1. love is patient
2. love is kind

II. God's love should be the DNA of the church
A. love must be provoked by each other
B. love must be experienced through each other

God is ALWAYS at work! Even when we can’t see Him work, He is working.

The Bible says that God is our Help. God loves us as His children and He is always standing with us. God has a mission for our lives and He is faithful to help us every step of the way.

God was helping Moses in some amazing ways through some unexpected people to prepare him for something big. God might be working on you right now and you are viewing it as God picking on you rather than God helping you.

God is our help! Our God is faithful to be our help!

On a daily basis we face extreme spiritual warfare. We experience this through marriage conflict, depression, division and constant resistance as we try to move forward through life.

While Jesus was training the disciples, He described His plan that would push back the powers of darkness. He called them to part of something that Satan would have no power to overcome.

The good news is that we are also called to this same plan. We can live victorious when we embrace this amazing plan to move forward with the power of God. Do you know what it is? Discover what that plan is as the church.

Faithful God :: Introduction

Pastor Tony Liuzzo (Lead Pastor) - Exodus 1 & 2 (Proverbs 20:6; 25:19; 2 Thessalonians 3:3; Genesis 12:2; 46:3; 47:11; Exodus 1:6-22; 2:1-10; Matthew 28:20; Hebrews 11:23; 2 Timothy 1:7; Acts 5:29)

 

Our God is faithful! Moses experienced this first hand through all of the ups and downs of his life. God was faithful even when Moses was was not.

What does it truly mean to be faithful?

We struggle with this concept because we are unfaithful people. We all mess up, let people down and disappoint. God is nothing like us. God is always faithful! You can depend on Him. You can trust every word that He says.

We can better understand God's faithfulness as we witness it through the life of Moses.
