CHURCH IS ESSENTIAL
By Pastor Mike 

We were never created to be alone otherwise the idea to "multiply and subdue it" is a false teaching and the fellowship of the saints would be a waste of time. That’s why the institute of the family is so important to God. That’s why the institute of marriage is so important to God. That’s why the institute of the local church is so important God. This is where the one another’s are in the body of Christ! This is where we find our refueling, comfort, encouragement for the week. This is where God’s people use their gifts for the glory of God in the family, the marriage and the church. Our calling is to nurture; not to: coddle, or compromise. We are in this local place to nurture and care for the body as it grows in grace. 

How? 

1. Love One Another……John 13:34 “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.”  


2. Be Devoted To One Another…….Rom 12:5 “so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.”  


3. Serve One Another……Gal 6:2 “Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.” What is the Law of Christ? “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another." John 13:34-35


4. Embodying Kindness & Forgivenss To One Another………Eph 4:32 “Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.”  

5. Encourage One Another……..1 Thess 5:11 “Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.”  


6. Offer Hospitality To One Another……….1 Peter 4:9 “Show hospitality to one another without grumbling.”  


7. Be Accountable & Pray For One Another…….James 5:16 “Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working. 


The ministry to “one another’s” is commands, they are not suggestions. This should be at the very heart of every born again child of God. Being in this place is not about…. programs, or having your felt needs met, or getting what you want out of the church. But! Sharing life together as brother and sisters, young and old, for His glory and the edification of this local body of Christ, His church. 

"The church is essential because the church is an institution
that is established for the glory of God"

A Constant Struggle

 

For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh.

 Galatians 5:17

In every believer’s heart there is a constant struggle between the old nature and the new. The old nature is very active and loses no opportunity of employing all the weapons in its deadly arsenal against newborn grace; while on the other hand, the new nature is always on the lookout to resist and destroy its enemy. Grace within us will employ prayer and faith and hope and love to cast out the evil; it takes to itself “the whole armor of God”1 and wrestles vigorously. These two opposing natures will never stop struggling as long as we are in this world.

Bunyan’s Christian fought Apollyon in a battle lasting three hours, but the battle of Christian with himself lasted all the way from the entry Gate to the River Jordan. The enemy is so securely entrenched within us that he can never be driven out while we are in this body: But although we are closely followed, and often in fierce conflict, we have an Almighty helper, Jesus, the Captain of our salvation, who is always with us and who assures us that we shall eventually be more than conquerors through Him. With such assistance the newborn nature is more than a match for its enemies.

Are you fighting with the adversary today? Are Satan, the world, and the flesh all against you? Do not be discouraged nor dismayed. Fight on! For God Himself is with you. Jehovah Nissi is your banner, and Jehovah Rophi is the healer of your wounds. Do not fear, you will overcome, for who can defeat Omnipotence? Fight on, “looking to Jesus”;2 and although the conflict is long and tough, the victory will be sweet, and the promised reward will be glorious.

From strength to strength go on;
Wrestle, and fight, and pray,
Tread all the powers of darkness down,
And win the well-fought day.

1) Ephesians 6:11
2) Hebrews 12:2

One-Year Bible Reading Plan

 







Our ultimate desire at Calvary Baptist Church is first and foremost to bring glory and praise to the Sovereign LORD [Father, Son, & Holy Spirit] and to raise up mature believers so that we can fulfill the Great Commission. We will seek to achieve this by following the guidelines that God has put in place for prayer, worship, communion, Christian fellowship, Bible Study, and most of all the expository teaching of God’s Word.  We desire to provide the proper teaching of God’s Word so that fellow believers can grow together and edify one another with love and compassion.  

Please come join us,
as we look into how God has composed a unique story
for each of our lives.
