Last week, we focused on Acts 2:42-43a, digging into the corporate means of grace, which are our means of growth and nourishment in Christ. As believers, we are called to engage with Him, to know Him, and to abide with Him through these means. This morning, we pick up with verses 43 through 47 to examine the normal activities of the local church. The six things we are going to look are the natural results of Christ’s work of redemption in His people.
This sermon examines what the whole Bible teaches about the Lord’s Supper. Learn some of the errors people make in their theologies of the Lord’s Supper, and see what the Bible teaches about what the Lord’s Supper signs, seals, and who should participate in it.
In our Day and Age, Church Vision Statements are typically crafted as supplements to Scripture designed to generate excitement with new activity. Here at Morningview, our Vision is set upon the risen Christ, and we believe Scripture defines very clearly for us how we are to serve Him. For our Vision 2020, we are grounding ourselves in the description of the first Christian church in Acts 2:42-43. Faithfulness to these Corporate Means of Grace, in our particular context, is the foundation of how Morningview Baptist will move forward in service to Christ.
