Dear CrossPointe, How I've missed you! Robert and I had a great time ministering alongside some dear brothers and sisters in India, but I'm really looking forward to seeing you all Sunday. We'll pick back up where Will left off (by the way, great work by him last two weeks!) as we look at Matthew 7:1214. The first verse in this text is one of the more familiar ones in th...Keep Reading

This Sunday we conclude our Malachi series with one of the great promises of the Old Testament.

Dear CrossPointe, This Sunday we'll hit the pause button on our series through the Sermon on the Mount to look at the purpose, practice, and importance of communion. To do this, we'll work through 1 Corinthians 11:1734, where Paul instructs the church on how we should approach "the Lord's table." Communion and baptism are pictures of the gospel that the Lord has given to...Keep Reading
