People of Christ

As God recaptures life in us, we believe that He is leading us to become a certain kind of people — People of Christ. Therefore, we find great importance in becoming: People of the Holy Spirit, People of the Church, People of Scripture, People of Mission and People of Sacrifice. This series will explore each of these ideas, how Scripture encourages us to embody them and how we can live them out as a community of believers. History shows us that through the lifespan of the church, these five things have always been essential values, so join us as we seek to emanate these things and live as People of Christ. 

 

    • People of the Holy Spirit: Luke 14:26
      Jesus disciples his people to have a relationship with him that is the guiding relationship of our lives. We relate to Christ through a daily walk with the Holy Spirit (John 14:15-17, 25-26; 16:7-15). His disciples therefore make a commitment to be people of the Spirit. This is the relationship that governs our lives. It is Christ Jesus, through the Holy Spirit who is shaping us into a certain type of people. Therefore, Disciples desire and pursue an ongoing, daily relationship with the Spirit. Disciples also learn to discern his voice among all the others. As people of the Spirit we engage in the practice of prayer.

    • People of Scripture: John 8:30-32
      Jesus disciples his people to abide in his word of truth. His disciples therefore make a commitment to the Scriptures. They delight in Scripture, know Scripture, obey Scripture. As people of Scripture we have a habit of meditating on it.

    • People of the Church: John 13:34-35
      Jesus disciples his people to engage in loving community, that has come to be called “the church.” His disciples therefore make a commitment to a local church. The church is built by Jesus and on Jesus, is led by the Spirit, is unique in its origin and purpose, is an organism (not an organization) embodying Jesus’ presence in the world, is made up of all kinds of people (not events or products to consume). As people of the Church, we have a priority for church membership, worship, serving, communion, and baptism.

    • People of Mission: Matthew 28:18-20
      Jesus disciples his people to go and make other disciples. His disciples therefore make a commitment to his mission. We have ministry of reconciliation, where we teach people to obey Christ, and we partner with Jesus in this work. As people of mission, we engage in the work of making new disciples and growing disciples both locally and all over the world.

    • People of Sacrifice: Luke 14:27, 33
      Jesus disciples his people to sacrifice everything for him. His disciples therefore make a commitment to a life of sacrifice. Sacrifice includes a cheerful, ready heart, repeated and patterned action of giving up our personal desires and rights, our material things, and our time. We sacrifice so that we can give to his kingdom building efforts both locally and globally. The goal of sacrifice is not self-worship, but rather it is thanksgiving to God.
Communion

Jesus taught His disciples how to remember His broken body and shed blood in the Communion ordinance. Communion is a symbolic display of celebrating what Jesus did on the cross and what He is doing in our lives today.

As often as we remember Jesus, we should celebrate Jesus.

 

Fundamentals

The beginning of the Bible covers some important fundamentals that we need to revisit often. It answers questions like who is God? Who am I? What’s the purpose of life? Why are things so messed up? And many more. The beginning of the story points to the end of the story, which is Christ. As we read the story and make observations, we will see that God is good and gracious, always. 

Generosity

A four week series on generosity. The series focuses on the life of generosity to which Jesus calls his followers. Generosity goes against: independence, personal kingdoms, difficult circumstances, self-glory, compulsion, and spontaneity. Instead it is for: grace, interdependence/unity, a concern for others, thanksgiving to God, cheerfulness, and routine.

Today: toward new life

Today: toward new life is the third installment in a three-series study of 2 Corinthians 1-7:1. This series continues our journey and begins off where "Weary?" left off in chapter five. It will focus on what being a Christian looks like in the present as we live out are lives and as we await Jesus’ return.

Poured Out For You

The greatest and most urgent challenge for all humans is to trust in what we do not even see, God. We can get stuck in unbelief or worse a “safe” user-friendly belief, but we need to remember that he poured out for all who believe. A Palm Sunday and Easter message.

 

Weary? toward being refreshed

"Weary? toward being refreshed" is the second installment in a three-series study of 2 Corinthians 1-7:1. At this point in 2 Corinthians 4:1, the text begins to stress the weariness and discouragement that we must successfully deal with. It becomes very practical in terms of weathering such seasons.

Unveiled: toward transparency

This series is the first installment of a study of 2 Corinthians 1-7:1 that will help you understand life under the New Covenant and in the Spirit. This section of Scripture provides the theological underpinnings that our philosophy of ministry is based on at Red Mountain.

Radiance

"He is the radiance of the glory of God...." — Hebrews 1:3

Goads and Nails

Goads and Nails is centered around the book of Luke. There are a number of occasions when Jesus utters something extremely profound with very few words throughout Luke's Gospel account. These are proverbial sayings that provide valuable wisdom. Each week we will identify one of these proverbial sayings spoken by Jesus and we will describe how it will transform us.

WE—The King & His Kingdom

Our current series, “WE, The King and His Kingdom," is a six-week study in the book of Luke.  As in the past, our fall series is an all-church devotional that involves journaling together as a church on a regular basis. Our devotional this fall will guide us through the Gospel according to Luke. Together, we will spend six weeks studying Luke together as a church on Sundays, as well as throughout the week in our devotional journals.

GOD

This series entitled, GOD, will teach a practical theology of God. The message will be that He is and does things in a certain way, and does them through us a certain way. We don’t want to lose sight of who God is, because in the end all His power is aimed at making us like Him. “God” will speak to your brain and into your day-to-day life, because who you’ll become is rooted solidly in who He is. What you’ll experience along the way is too.

Walking in the Spirit

The filling of the Spirit is when the Holy Spirit more directly displays his presence and his power in his people. When you believe in Jesus, the Holy Spirit comes to dwell in you and is always with you. There are times though, special times when the Spirit fills you with empowering for a particular moment.
