The celebration of Christmas, when done for Christ’s glory and honor, is actually a blow against secularism, the idol of our age which says God and man should be kept in separate categories. As pastor Nate Harlan says, “Merry Christmas” is a battle cry.
As a follow-up to his series on Life in the Church, Pastor Nate Harlan discusses the rationale for leaving a church. When must you leave? When must you stay? How do you honor Christ no matter what?
Why do we gather for worship every Lord’s Day? And what should we expect? The answer is vital, for as Pastor Nate Harlan points out, refusing to go to church is a prelude to apostasy.
American Christians are far too prone to being individualistic and thinking ourselves as self-sufficient. But we all need to be under godly authority, because without it, we will go astray. Hear the sixth sermon in Pastor Nate Harlan’s series on “Life in the Church.”
What does it mean to be in communion with God and with one another? Pastor Nate Harlan preaches from 1 John to tell us that life in the church is all about repenting from our self-deception.
Some Christians say that doctrine is not as important as simply loving God. But as Pastor Nate Harlan points out in his fourth sermon on Life in the Church, lying about someone is not loving. And false doctrine lies about God.
Life in the church requires a profound sense of clost-knit community with a very well-defined purpose. That purpose is to be purified from all lawlessness.
What is the communion of the saints? And why does it matter? As Pastor Nate Harlan explains, when God saves us from our sins and reconciles us to Himself through Christ, He also reconciles us to His church.
