Jesus and a Community of Pursuit

Jesus and a Community of Pursuit.png

In John 4 we see Jesus have an unlikely interaction with a woman at a well. Jesus pursues this woman with intentionality, with compassion and with the truth and it changes everything for this woman and an entire town. How does his pursuit of us motivate our pursuit of one another?

Responding Generously to the Grace of Jesus

LIVING SACRIFICIALLY FOR THE FAME OF JESUS-2.png

What does the Bible have to say about generosity with our finances? What is tithe, and do we have to do it? This week we looked at what the Bible says about money and how we respond to the grace of Jesus as God’s people.

As we enter the new year Pastor Stewart answers the basic questions surrounding communion: what is it? Who should take it? When should we take it? And what to do now in light of the truth that this ordinance is a well of rich comfort for us and sweet tangible reminder of the gospel as often as we take it.

Gathered Worship: Receiving and Responding to the Gospel

GATHERED WORSHIP-6.png

Why do we do what we do during our Sunday Gatherings? It is crucial that we answer this question and know why everything that we do together during worship matters. At Veritas, we define Gathered Worship as the gathering of followers of Jesus to receive and respond to their shared hope in the gospel. Everything that we do should point us to our shared hope in the gospel, helping us respond to God because of what he has done.

Vision 2017: #ReadTheBook

“It's true what people say, God doesn't love me more if I daily read the Bible. What's often not said is how much more I love God when I do.” - Donnie Griggs.

Simply put, those who read the Scripture grow as followers of Jesus. If we want to carry out our mission: to glorify God by making disciples who love God, love people, and advance the gospel, we’ve got to be people of the Book.

Fear and Trust - Psalm 27

The Psalms are much different from many of the songs that we sing in our church gatherings today. These songs are messy, filled with the writers emotions both positive and negative. We have much to learn from these psalmists about dealing with our emotions. As we see these writers deal with their feelings of loss, abandonment, insecurity, or doubt you can hear them reminding themselves about the faithfulness, works and attributes of God. This messy, up and down, back and forth line of thinking is much like our own. Join us as we walk through the murky waters of our own emotions seeking health from the only one who can provide, the God man Jesus Christ.

Mock Two Services - Volunteer Service Audio

This is the audio from our Mock Two Services on Aug 30 at 9am, "Volunteer Service." We took the opportunity to celebrate with eating some good food together, singing, answering questions, and ending in prayer. Pastor John Murphy spoke directly to the Service Team Volunteers about the Why behind going to two services and encouraged them that their labor is being used by Jesus to advance His Gospel right here in Fayetteville. 

Partnership in the Gospel - Standing For the Truth in Love

Brian Recker, a pastor at One Harbor Church, spoke to us from 2 Timothy 2:14-26. In this passage Paul encourages us not to put our hope in trivial things but rather to stand firm in the truth, namely the gospel of Jesus. In the wake of certain court decisions about the definition of marriage, the disintegration of a moral majority, or the stampede of secularism we should be confident that the church flourishes in times of being marginalized. Brian charged all of us as believers to do the hard work of taking our own sin seriously and living on mission for Jesus. For, the greatest threat to the church is her own hypocrisy.

Partnership in the Gospel - Seek First the Kingdom

Bryan was ordained as an elder at One Harbor Church in October 2012 after serving as a U.S. Marine. In addition to regular pastoral care, he is responsible for supervising many of their church programs, ensuring that the vision, direction and requirements set by the elders are implemented and carried out. 

Bryan preached from Matthew 6 where Jesus tells us to seek first the kingdom above all else. This may at first tempt us to increase our many reasons for being anxious, but Jesus lovingly assures us that as we carry out his mission, to make disciples of Jesus, he will take of everything else.
