Why Church?

Why did God create the local church, and why is it so important for every Christian to be a vital, active part of one? Listen in as Pastor Peter shares the things God desires for the people of a church to accomplish in the body life of that particular fellowship. It’s much more than “just showing up” on a Sunday!

The Shield of Faith – Armor of God Series (Pt. 7)

One of the ways Roman soldiers used their shields in battle was to stand side by side, shields abutting one another, creating a solid wall of protection and defense against the enemy. In the same way, faith in Christ is designed by God to be lived side by side with other believers. What happens when we pull away from fellowship? How does fellowship with other Christians help us defend ourselves and stand firm in a spiritual battle? Listen today as Pastor Peter Atkin continues teaching on “the shield of faith” in Ephesians 6:16, part of his series on the armor of God.

The Shield of Faith – Armor of God Series (Pt. 6)

“Faith apprehends as a real fact what is not revealed in the senses. It rests in the fact, acts upon it, and is upheld by it in the face of all that seems to contradict it.” Marvin Vincent (Vincent’s Word Studies in the New Testament) – What do you understand about faith, and the way faith engages us with God? What is faith? How do faith and works coexist? What does faith have to do with spiritual warfare and the schemes of Satan? Pastor Peter answers all these questions in today’s message on the shield of faith, from Ephesians 6:10-18.
