Our elders and ministers have carefully and prayerfully selected ten passages of Scripture we believe are core passages, foundational words that shape us. These are Bible passages that speak to the nature of our God and his work for us in Jesus Christ. They declare the truth of the Gospel, they remind us how to live in light of that Good News, they help us keep The Story straight.
And they form us.
These are formational passages that, when they get inside us, when they become a part of who we are, will shape us more into the image of God’s Son.
We’ll be hearing these passages each Sunday, week after week. We want to hear them again and again when we’re together. We want these verses to be embedded deep into our souls.
We’re not going to be afraid of repetition; in fact, we’re going to embrace it. We want to be shaped into a certain kind of people. Forming Gospel habits works. Repetition works.
1 John 4:7-12
Romans 8:28, 31b-35, 37-39
May God bless the reading of his Word.

As a people, we are rooted in the Word of God. We gain strength and nourishment through the Scriptures. The Bible is the revelation of our God and the conduit for transformation into his image. It’s our solid base during times of trouble and our source of energy and growth during times of peace. It’s our foundation.
Throughout 2019, we invite you to join us for a year-long sermon series exploring ten core Bible passages. These are the central Scriptures through which we understand the whole. These are the verses that reveal the nature of our God and the mission of his Son, the primary commands and weightier matters, the prayers and the promises intended to get inside our hearts and souls and make us into children of the King.
Let’s sink our roots deep into the rich soil of the Scriptures together.
