Go West Young Man

Posted in church, missional, gospel, evangelism by LifeSpringChurch on September 18th, 2016

This sermon takes its title from a Horace Greely quote during the westward migration in the infancy of the United States. The sermon text comes from Acts 13:1-5 in which the church in Syrian Antioch commissioned Paul and Barnabas to begin a westward push of the gospel to central Turkey and parts west of there.  This sermon looks at the four characteristics of the first century church and shows how LifeSpring can imitate them as well:  trusting God, being sensitive to God's call, focus on mission, and unification in purpose.

What is a missional church?

Posted in church, missional, first century, apostolic by LifeSpringChurch on September 22nd, 2014

This sermon looks at the development of the church, since the first century, from a missional form to an institutional, Christendom form.  The sermon looks at what that means for the church today as well as what we should be doing about it to restore a first century ethos.
