Preacher: Kris Baines, guest pastor

Key Text: Philippians 3:12 – 4:1

Description: There’s no doubt we’re living in challenging times — times in which there is an unprecedented effort to marginalize Christian values.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, we welcome back our Down Under pastor and pianist friend, Kris Baines, to share the encouraging message that though we face challenge, with Jesus, we can remain unshakable.

For though the world — like never before in recent history — now celebrates and normalizes things the Bible condemns as wicked, sinful, and perverse, we as followers of Jesus Christ are called and empowered to “keep going and stand firm” in our Christian walk.

The Test of Fellowship [1 John 2:18-21]

October 20, 2013

Sermon Notes

Date: 10/20/2013

Preacher: Monty Simao, elder

Series: 1 John

Key Text: 1 John 2:18-21

Description: Sometimes familiar words lose their meaning.  The word fellowship is like that. We use the word fellowship as an adjective to describe a church event.  For instance, a potluck becomes a “fellowship meal” and just hanging out with other believers becomes “fellowshipping”.  The term fellowship though is significant in meaning and must be understood within the context of Christ’s fellowship with His people.  As Christ is in fellowship with His people, His people are in fellowship with each other.  The teaching of and about Christ become the truth upon which our fellowship is based.

In our message today, we see that there are some who have broken fellowship, they have dis-fellowshipped themselves over the truth.  John tells the church that those who have left — left because they never were truly in fellowship in the first place.

The First Gospel Proclamation [Genesis 3:1-21]

December 9, 2012

Sermon Notes

Date: 12/09/2012

Preacher: Monty Simao, elder

Key Text: Genesis 3:1-21

Description: Christmas is preeminently about God’s promise of a coming Savior who would rescue man from the curse of the fall. God’s mercy and grace is always seen in His works and in His interactions with man.  In the Garden of Eden Adam and Eve shook their fists to Heaven as they rebelled against God and God cursed them according to the covenant agreement.  No sooner had the curse been said God also proclaimed the Gospel of a coming Savior.
