He presented himself as the only option for a life that’s as good and meaningful as it was meant to be, and the only hope for life beyond the grave. *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.
Colossians 1. Cosmologists continue to search for an equation that explains the universe. What if the answer is not in an equation, but a person? The apostle Paul tells us that everything was created through and for Jesus. Is Jesus at the center of your life?
Luke 19:1-10. In the story of Zacchaeus we see that Jesus came to seek and to save what was lost. He calls us to the same mission.
1 Peter 2. This message comes from Grace Chapel’s “Reset” series. Pastor Bryan discusses the recent federal ruling on gay marriage and how living lives of respect, remarkable love and doing good can help us to glorify God in a culture that may feel at odds with our faith.
As Christ’s Church continues exploring a strategic partnership with Grace Chapel, we’re excited to present the “More” series from Pastor Bryan Wilkerson and the Grace Chapel Teaching Team. In this final installment of the series, we’re reminded of the importance of unity in the body of Christ. Paul’s letter to the Corinthians, a once thriving church, shows us how division will weaken the flow of God’s Spirit to His people. We need to be one in the spirit if we…
As Christ’s Church continues exploring a strategic partnership with Grace Chapel, we’re excited to present the “More” series from Pastor Bryan Wilkerson and the Grace Chapel Teaching Team. In this week’s message we see that the flow of the Holy Spirit into our lives and the “more” we’re seeking from God gets stopped up when sin is left unchecked. It also harms the people we’re called to love and serve. King David’s Psalm of confession, Psalm 51, helps us to discover four helpful steps…
Genesis 34 and Colossians 3. Elder Ralph Paul shares two stories of tragedy, contrasting the dire consequences of unforgiveness with the powerful work of God that can occur when we embody Jesus’ command to forgive.
Acts 15. In this chapter a great debate comes to a head in the Jerusalem council, do the Gentiles need to convert to Judaism to be saved? If not, then what requirements are placed on them?

Isaiah 53, Revelation 12. Dale Kuehne draws upon Isaiah’s suffering servant prophecy to remind us that we have all gone astray. It was for our sin that Jesus came into this world to die for our redemption. We did not deserve this act of love, and so we must extend this same grace to all of mankind, even those who we consider worse sinners than ourselves.
Joshua 24, Judges 2, Isaiah 6. Dr. Dale Kuehne emphasizes the collective responsibility that we have as followers of God, not just for the present, but for the past and future as well. In Isaiah we see that though the prophet’s words will be ignored by his generation, he must still be faithful to deliver God’s message. These words will be discovered by a future generation who will need them to recognize the Messiah.
Luke 7. Guest speaker Derrick Avery explores Jesus’ encounter with the sinful woman. We all need God’s forgiveness and we all need to offer that same kind of forgiveness to others.
