What it Means to Follow Jesus

May 2nd, 2010 by Gary Wallace

Our mission here at Pioneer Community Church is “To show and tell others of the fullness of life that is offered in Christ.”  Did you know that the disciples in the Bible had that same mission?  Well, it’s true, which means that we too are disciples.

Pastor Gary brings the message “We are Disciples- What it Means to Follow Jesus.”  This message gives specifics on how to attain spiritual growth so that we may become effective disciples of Christ.

Seize the Moment, Live for Him

April 25th, 2010 by Mike Carter

We’ve all heard the saying “don’t put of till tomorrow what you can do today.”  When it comes to making the decision to accept Christ into your life, that saying goes hand in hand with another- “tomorrow is promised to no one.”

Pastor Mike brings to us the message titled “Seize the Moment, live for Him.”  This message will emphasize that if you want to change your life, and you want to be sure of eternal salvation, do not put off doing business with God, the time is now!

The Key to Greatness

April 18th, 2010 by Will Martin

What does Greatness look like, and how do you recognize it when you see it?  How do you know it when you see it?
There is an ancient way of thinking about greatness that is still very much alive in our day, but Jesus brings us a whole new way of thinking about what it means to be great in God’s eyes. That’s what we’ll think about today as we Journey in the Word.

No Fear

April 12th, 2010 by Will Martin

Perhaps you have noticed that somewhere along the way we have turned Jesus into a Mr. Rogers figure; a genteel, soft spoken, relationally sensitive, grandfathering figure who walks around in a white robe, with softly permed hair, indiscriminately blessing people with kind words.

Today, as we Journey in the Word, we will see that Jesus was actually a walking defining moment, much more aptly described as the Lion of Judah (Rev. 5:5). What does it mean to follow such a man, aspiring to be like Him?

Join me as we seek to find out,

Discipleship

March 28th, 2010 by Mike Carter

Over the past few weeks, we’ve been talking about discipleship – what it really means to follow Jesus.  We’ve explored the Gospels and seen the portraits of Jesus’ character, His willingness to reach, accept, and include people who other thought were unworthy.  And in turn, those people realized that He was the one true teacher.

Today, Pastor Mike will revisit some of the lessons we’ve learned about discipleship in order to reinforce our understanding of what it really means to be Christ-like and what we should be doing to spread the Good News to reach others for God’s kingdom.

Have a Blessed week,
Your Pastors

An Easy Yoke

March 22nd, 2010 by Will Martin

In talking about discipleship lately we’ve been focusing on the importance of living our lives in Jesus’ presence so that we can learn to be like Him.  It has, at sometime, been true of all of us that while claiming the benefits of the cross we have been unwilling to obey Christ’s teachings concerning forgiving people who have hurt us, giving to the poor, being faithful in prayer, going to the “other side” to tell others of all that God has done for us or whatever.  But is that ever really an option?
There is one simple question for this week’s sermon as we dig deeper into the background of discipleship, “ If you are willing to trust Jesus for a future life in heaven, are you willing to obey everything that He says about your current life on earth?”

Going to the Other Side

March 14th, 2010 by Will Martin

Now, very seriously, how would you react if God came to you and said, “My child, I want you to get over your silly prejudices and reach out to THOSE people”? Please don’t give some delusional, knee-jerk response that betrays self-deception like “For you Lord, I would do ANYTHING!” Get ready to think honestly and deeply about how you would truly respond if He called you on a mission to the “untouchables” for that’s what we’ll consider today in our Journey in the Word.

Being a Life-Long Learner

March 7th, 2010 by Will Martin

If  someone asked you “What does it mean to be a disciple of Jesus?” How would would you respond?  What is the sum total of your answer to that question?

Plain and simple, in this Sunday’s message we will begin a new series of sermons that will involve our looking at portraits of Jesus from the Gospels in order to grow in our understanding of what it really means to follow Him.

My hearty bet is that even if you have been a “disciple” for 50+ years, we will see new things together over the next several weeks – so I hope you come along, as we Journey in the Word.

Boasting in the Cross,

Will
