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" 

The question is…. How can we overcome our differences to love one another as a family under God?  Answer: Eph 4:1-16. By viewing each other through the lens of gospel and see this person though whom Christ died and in whom the Son of God lives. Knowing that we are of one family should cause us to honor and love one another. Sharing truths about God bind Christians together in the truest and deepest kind of unity. All these vocational callings are a clear demonstration to having a unified local church. Every one of us here in the body of Christ has a significant task to perform. Not one person here is insignificant or unimportant. There is no such thing as a misfit in the body of Christ. Why? Christ, Himself, is the one who makes sure that we fit together and knit together in the unity of His body. We are called to be love contributors, not just love consumers. We need each other’s love, because Christ has made us one. We must never rule ourselves out of the process of building the church, which Christ instituted to reach the lost with the gospel. 

Ordinary people doing what we love to do
as local body of believers. Worshipping our God together 
for the unity of one another.

Away Then, All Fears
Alistair Begg

She wags her head behind you—
the daughter of Jerusalem.

 Isaiah 37:22

Reassured by the Word of the Lord, the poor trembling citizens of Zion grew bold and shook their heads at Sennacherib’s boastful threats. Strong faith enables the servants of God to look with calm contempt upon their most haughty foes. We know that our enemies are attempting impossibilities. They seek to destroy eternal life, which cannot die while Jesus lives—to overthrow the citadel, against which the gates of hell shall not prevail. They kick against the goads to their own wounding and defiantly charge against God to their own hurt.

We know their weakness. What are they but men? And what is man but a worm? They roar and swell like waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame. When the Lord arises, they shall fly as chaff before the wind and be consumed as crackling thorns. Their utter powerlessness to do damage to the cause of God and His truth may make the weakest soldiers in Zion’s ranks laugh them to scorn.

Above all, we know that the Most High is with us, and when He clothes Himself in armor, where are His enemies? If He comes forth from His place, the fragments of the earth will not long contend with their Maker. His rod of iron shall dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel, and their very remembrance shall perish from the earth. Away, then, all fears—the kingdom is safe in the King’s hands. Let us shout for joy, for the Lord reigns, and His foes shall be as straw for compost.

As true as God’s own word is true;
Nor earth, nor hell, with all their crew,
Against us shall prevail.
A jest, and byword, are they grown;
God is with us, we are his own,
Our victory cannot fail.

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.
