Life in the Community of Faith (Standalone)

1 Peter, Chapter 5 verses 6 through 11 instructs us as believers to be humble, to be watchful, and to stand firm in resisting the devil. Verse 10 doesn’t promise that these will be easy and even suggests we will endure suffering.  It does, however, offer us the hope that God will restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish us.

Listen in as special guest speaker, Jonathan Davis guides us through these verses and how to apply them to our lives as members of the community of Faith.

What Elders Do (Elders #3)

There’s a lot of confusion about what a church elder is expected to do. Do they manage budgets? Do they oversee the pastor and staff? Do they manage the projects of the church, or oversee the administrative details, or simply control all the happenings of the church?

In this third and final message in the Elders series, Pastor Erin Bird helps us answer the question “What is an elder supposed to actually do?” by looking at 1 Peter 5:1-5.

The Low Path to the Top (Uphill #9)

Most things in life are pretty straight forward. For instance, when you turn your steering wheel to the right, you expect your car to turn right.

But a few things in life are counterintuitive. “Less is More” is one such example.

In the final chapter of 1 Peter, we see a counterintuitive idea that will help Jesus-followers reach the summit of Christlikeness. If you want to go Uphill, you have to learn how to go low. So listen in to learn about the power of humility.

Remember the Right Path (Uphill #8)

In 1 Peter 3:18-4:11, there are some very “unique” teachings and ideas. It’s easy to get bogged down by these strange ideas, trying to figure them out. But to do so, you run the risk of missing the more important points that are in the passage.

So this week, we look at the controversial sections of 1 Peter 3:18-4:11, but we also look at the more important message that Peter wrote to try and encourage his readers to follow Jesus.

And to follow Jesus, you just need to remember four things. To find out what those four things are, listen in as we learn from a controversial, but important section of 1 Peter.
