Sunday Recap for January 16, 2011

It was great to preach again having been out of the loop for 3 weeks.  We had to cancel because of snow, then we were at the high school on Celebration Sunday, and then last week, Pastor Jerry preached at the West OC site.  So I picked up where he left off with our sermon series entitled iBelieve.  Unfortunately we didn’t get to record the sermon this week, but you can always listen to Pastor Daryl’s sermon on the same subject here. Every January, we go through our 9 core values in a series of sermons to reorient ourselves as to where our focus lies.

This week we talked about Evangelism, Discipleship, and Relationships.  Evangelism is this action of giving other people opportunities to encounter Jesus through your words and deeds. It flows out of a heart that is enamored with the Gospel. When people embrace this Gospel, the process of discipleship begins.  All of this happens within the context of authentic relationships.  Without deep and genuine relationships, evangelism is often misconceived as proselytizing and discipleship as a mere exchange of information.
