The Way of the Gospel

We talk a lot about sharing the Good News and evangelizing, but what does that actually look like? How can we do it in a way that is effective and also respectful? *Christ’s Church is a strategic partner of Grace Chapel in Lexington, MA and features the teaching of Pastor Bryan Wilkerson and the Grace Chapel Teaching Team.

How can the church re-gain people’s attention and trust?

Devoted

So how do we explain the DEVOTION of the first Christians, their FAVORABILITY among the people, and the remarkable GROWTH of the early church? It’s Jesus! How devoted are we to Jesus? How central is Jesus to our lives and homes and church?  *Christ’s Church is a strategic partner of Grace Chapel in Lexington, MA and features the teaching of Pastor Bryan Wilkerson and the Grace Chapel Teaching Team.

Building Gospel Bridges

There is a deep correlation between our relationship with God and our relationship with others. In this sermon from Nikki Toyama-Szeto, Executive Director of Christians for Social Action, we learn how working for justice is the “gospel bridge” that we need to build with our neighbors and a watching world. Justice and evangelism go hand in hand because today, people do not assume that God is good. Justice is the demonstration that our God is a good God. Christ’s Church…

Perfect Strangers

We often gravitate more towards people who are like us. But Jesus offers us a better way to expand our relational connections as we begin to see “them” as “us”. *Christ’s Church is a strategic partner of Grace Chapel in Lexington, MA and features the teaching of Pastor Bryan Wilkerson and the Grace Chapel Teaching Team.

The Power of Limitations

“My grace is enough; it’s all you need. My strength comes into its own in your weakness.” *Christ’s Church is a strategic partner of Grace Chapel in Lexington, MA and features the teaching of Pastor Bryan Wilkerson and the Grace Chapel Teaching Team.

Just Jesus

When we proclaim the good news to the poor, they experience that only in Jesus there is forgiveness, salvation and, the gift of eternal life with the Father. When we listen to His message, they can actually experience that. *Christ’s Church is a strategic partner of Grace Chapel in Lexington, MA and features the teaching of Pastor Bryan Wilkerson and the Grace Chapel Teaching Team.

Jesus, the Gospel and Justice

The gospel of Jesus Christ involves both word and deed. Both need to be held in tension and balance as two wings of a bird. The danger of the church is the emphasis of one with the neglect of the other. *Christ’s Church is a strategic partner of Grace Chapel in Lexington, MA and features the teaching of Pastor Bryan Wilkerson and the Grace Chapel Teaching Team.

Won’t You Be Their Neighbor?
