The Promise is For You, For the World, and For God

After humanity fell into sin, the world was heading in the wrong direction. But in Genesis 12, God makes a big promise to an old pagan man named Abraham in a Middle Eastern city, and devotes the rest of human history to fulfilling that big promise.

But how would God accomplish his promise? Listen as Dave unpacks the covenant promise with Abraham from Genesis 15, 17, and 22.

Why Sundays?

Covenant's mission is to "glorify God and enjoy Him through planting and growing authentic gospel communities." Dave began a three-week series which gives the strategy of our church to carry out this mission, beginning with the Sunday Gathering.

How do our Sunday Gatherings encourage and support and further our mission? Listen in to find out.

A Fearless Church, Perfectly Loved

Paul tells us to follow his example, but his example feels so out of reach. How does he do what he does? It seems as if he has no fear. In 2 Corinthians, he explains that "the love of Christ controls him" (2 Corinthians 5:14). Yet, we are so often controlled by other loves.

Dave, preaching from 1 John 4, looks at the love of God in the gospel. He explains that the love of God controls us by freeing us from all fear.

The Call for Change: Why, How, and Where

It's a fundamental belief of every Christian that things are not the way they are supposed to be, that I am not the way I'm supposed to be. I need to change. Normally change is scary, but because of the grace and hope we find in Christ, you and I can embrace change. With Paul, we can "press on toward the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus" (Philippians 3), confident not in ourselves but in God who saves.

Dave calls us to change, explaining why, how, and where to begin. Please note: There's are three silent spaces in the audio which the congregation used for prayer. Don't fast forward, though! If you want change, you need prayer, too!

God is Glorious

During the month of December, we looked at the character of God in "The 4 G's" and the promises we find there. The 4 G's are:

  • God is great, so we don't have to be in control.
  • God is glorious, so we don't have to fear others.
  • God is good, so we don't have to look elsewhere.
  • God is gracious, so we don't have to prove ourselves.

After explaining how The 4G's can help in the day-to-day, Dave dives into the second G, God is Glorious.
