Matthew | The kingdom of god


Join us on Sundays at 4PM as we journey through the Gospel of Matthew

God's intention has always been to be near his people. The Gospel of Matthew is bookended by two profound statements. The first, in Matthew 1:21-23, is that in Jesus, God's Old Testament promise to come near to his people had come true. The second, in Matthew 28:19-20, is Jesus' promise that he would be with his followers forever. 

The first challenges the assumption that in and of ourselves we have what it takes to come near to God.

In Jesus we see that God had to come near to us. For us to be forgiven like the tax collectors and sinners, cleansed like the lepers, freed like the demonized, or healed like the paralytics, it took God moving toward us in Jesus. Maybe you need to be challenged and hear the good news that God moves first.

The second gives hope to his followers who are suffering and courage to his followers that are scared.

Jesus has promised to be with us, by the power of the Holy Spirit, until we are with him forever in heaven. His cross and resurrection are the evidence of the scope and certainty of his love. There is no darkness where he does not bring light (Psalm 23:4; 139:11-12), there is no adversity severe enough to separate you (Romans 8:35-39) from this promise that God is always with you. 

Join us in 2015 as we walk through Matthew's account of Jesus' life that brought him near those in need, his death that enabled sinners to be brought near, and his resurrection that secured our life with God forever. (Revelation 21:3).

Life in Community


 

God did not make us to be alone. Though there are 3.2 million people in Orange County, it is entirely possible to be surrounded by people but remain unknown. Though we may have family, dating relationships, coworkers, or neighbors in our lives, it it possible to have a life that is completely fragmented. We invite you to live life as God intended it, not just authentic but vulnerable, not compartmentalized but whole.

What To Expect

IMG_4431.jpg

Jesus

We preach Jesus from the Bible.

While you may learn some good things like historical background on the text, how to be a better person, or how to date or marry well, none of those are the primary purpose of preaching. Without Jesus, none of those things matter. Since Jesus is what we all need, and since the Bible is all about Him, we preach Jesus from the Bible every Sunday.

Kids Ministry

Help parents raise kids who love Jesus.

Our focus is on helping parents raise kids who love Jesus. We don’t just want to babysit children or do the work of discipling kids for their parents, we want to help train you, the parents or future parents, to raise kids who know and love Jesus.

Modern Liturgy

Public rhythms for private practices.

Our Sunday gatherings are also shaped by the rich heritage of faith that has been handed down through the centuries, so we seek to use a modern liturgy. We sing hymns that are centuries old done in ways that are understandable to us in this time. We read creeds, catechisms, and responsive readings together because we believe God loves hearing his kids proclaim truth about him together.
