Our Philosophy of Preaching

God uses His Word in every part of Scripture to save and sanctify. Our goal in preaching is to proclaim the truths of Scripture to God's gathered people. We believe the best way to do this is to preach through entire books of the Bible. This way the Bible picks the topic, not the preacher. Additionally, we believe the most effective way to bring scriptural truths to light is through what is called 'expositional preaching.' An expository sermon involves reading a text, explaining what it means, and showing how it applies to our lives today. Its goal is to let the text shape the sermon as much as possible, so the main point of the text will be the main point of the sermon. The sermon will seek to accomplish what the text is seeking to accomplish. The tone of the sermon will reflect the tone of the text, etc. To put it simply, expository preaching is about simply telling people what God has said in any given passage of Scripture, so that people are confronted with God's word, not man's. This is important because, unlike man's word, God's word in Scripture has authority and power to save lost souls and transform the hearts and lives of His people.

2 Timothy

Recent Series

September 19, 2021 - March 13, 2022

Second Timothy was the last of Paul's thirteen New Testament letters, written just before his death from a dungeon in Rome. It is a clear and sober call for the man of God to be faithful in Christian life and ministry, in the face of opposition, by a man who knew firsthand what that entailed. 


Current Series

July 11, 2021 - Paused Until Paul's Next Instalment TBA

On Sunday February 13, 2022, Paul Kaukonen added another sermon "Overthrowing Mercy" to his Jonah series. We are expecting at least one more sermon from Paul to complete this series on Jonah.


Recent Series

January 9, 2022 - January 30, 2022

Every year we take a break from our normal expository preaching through books of the Bible to preach a topical series in the month of January. The elders choose a topic which they deem pertinent to our contemporary situation as a church and seek to explain what the Bible has to say about it. This year we wanted to address a number of issues which have arisen in the midst of the turmoil of the last two years since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. We have titled this year's four-part series: "Addressing Some Pressing Issues the Church Faces in 2022."
