Below are somethings you might ask and expect:-

How should I dress?

Come in relaxed casual wear as you would to a regular type restaurant.  Make sure you are comfortable.

What can I expect?

Parking: As you drive in, turn to the right and there is visitor's parking. It’s close to the main door.

Through the doors: You will be welcomed by a couple of greeters who will show you to the sanctuary doors where ushers will again welcome you, hand you the weekly bulletin and direct you to vacant seats of your choosing.

In the Sanctuary (the main auditorium)?: Sit wherever you like.  There are no reserved seats. Familes have gravitated to the right hand wings of the church. Music will be playing as you enter, and people will be connecting.

Will I be asked to announce my name or speak in public?

No, you will not be asked to do anything that will make you feel uncomfortable or unsafe. A tear off communique slip is attached to a weekly bulletin which you can fill in and hand in on the offering plate if you would like us to pray for you or if you are comfortable to give us any information.

What’s next?: The pastor or someone will welcome everyone to the service and make some announcements. The praise team band will also come to the front and will lead in some singing to direct our thoughts toward God. And the service will start.

What style of music do we use?  We have a blend of modern songs and older genres of music called hymns. This is led by a band of musicians and singers.

Is there a talk:? Yes! A time to expose and explain the meaning behind a Bible passage is given that is applied to how it can affect our lives today.  This takes about 30 minutes of the service. We will always reference the Bible during this time.

How does the service end? The service ends with a song and prayer.  Time for social interaction happens at the end of the service where coffee is served. Feel free to meet our caring and loving church family.

The Object of Christ's Coming:

THE CHURCH

The Redemption of the Church

David Sparrow

January 24, 2021

1 Thes. 4:13-18; 1 Cor. 15:35-58; 2 Cor. 5:1-11

"Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is" (1 John 3:2).

 

Introduction

 

In 1 Cor. 10:32 the apostle gives a classification of mankind which helps us in considering the object of Christ's coming. Here Paul says,

“Give no offense either to Jews or to Greeks or to the church of God”

Here he divides mankind into three categories: the Jews, the Gentiles or nations, and the church of God. In God's prophetic plan He has specific purposes of grace, government, and glory for each group.

 

The object of Christ's coming for the church is fourfold: to complete the redemption of the church; to conduct the review of the church; to consummate (perfect) the reunion of the church; and to commence the reign of the church. Today we’ll look at the first of these objects:

 

1.         THE REDEMPTION OF THE CHURCH.

 

In Scripture, the redemptive (saving and liberating) work of Christ is always viewed in terms of what He has done, what He is doing, and what He will yet do. This threefold view is clearly illustrated in Ephesians 1:7:

"In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace."

The word "redemption" there covers the past and present experience of the believer and of the church. In the phrase, "we have redemption," Paul includes forgiveness and freedom, or justification and sanctification.

 

But then look at verses Ephesians 1:13, 14, where he goes on to say that, having heard and believed the gospel, believers are

"…sealed in Him with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession…"

 

Paul also speaks of this final aspect of redemption in the following Scriptures:

Romans 8:23—"…waiting eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our body";

1 Cor. 1:30—…Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, righteousness and sanctification and redemption";

Eph. 4:30—"…do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption."

If the past and present phases of redemption are justification and sanctification, the future phase is that of glorification.
