The Book of Genesis (Current Series)

Is there a God? Who made the universe? How did all of this get here? Did life evolve from nothing? Is there a purpose to our existence? Why is there suffering in the world? Was the entire earth under water? Where did all of the different nations of people and languages come from? Does the God of the universe know me? Can I know Him? Join us this as we begin a new study of the Book of Genesis and discover the answer to these and many more of our greatest questions.


Genesis

In the Beginning  (April 8, 2018)

Genesis 1:1-2 NKJV

1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.


Genesis

God, Science and the Creation of the Universe  (April 15, 2018)

Genesis 1:1 NKJV

1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 

Is the earth billions of years old or less than 10,000 years old? Can science and the Bible be reconciled? The answer is, “Yes.” This Sunday we continue our study of the Book of Genesis focusing on the creation of the earth.

In 2017 the documentary, “Is Genesis History?” was released; it “explores the world to see how it intersects with the stories related in Genesis. Del Tackett of ‘The Truth Project’ hikes through canyons, climbs mountains, and dives below the sea to examine two competing views – one compelling truth.” In light of our current sermon series, we believe this movie does a very good job in answering the question it proposes and encourage its viewing. It is available on Netflix and Amazon Prime.


Genesis

And It was Good, Very Good  (April 22, 2018)

Genesis 1:2-31 NKJV

2 The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. 3 Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. 4 And God saw the light, that it was good;

In the creation story of Genesis, the words “it was good.” appear seven times. Today, however, we see brokenness, damage, disaster and death; we can confuse the God who is good with the condition of creation today. We need to remember that things today are not as they were. Also, we need to remind ourselves that things will one day be, not as they are. As followers of Jesus Christ we have a bright and glorious future ahead. This Sunday we will look back in time through the rearview mirror of Scripture and see a time when God said, “It was good.”


Genesis

The Rest of the Story  (April 29, 2018)

Today we can accomplish more things in less time than ever. We have high speed internet, immediate information, instant communication and overnight shipping yet we still struggle to just have a little time to rest. This Sunday we will see what God says about rest and how we can make it a part of our lives for today and forever. Join us for “The Rest of the Story.”

Genesis 2:1-3 NKJV

1 Thus the heavens and the earth, and all the host of them, were finished. 2 And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. 3 Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made.

Genesis

The Foundation of Marriage, The Foundation of Society  (May 13, 2018)

The foundation of society is built on the foundation of marriage. If we want to know how something is supposed to look then we go back to the beginning and see how the Creator made it. Join us this week as we go back to the first marriage that was both created and blessed by God. These truths will bless you and your family as we seek His best.

Genesis 2:18-25 NKJV

18 And the Lord God said, “It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him.” 19 Out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the air, and brought them to Adam to see what he would call them. And whatever Adam called each living creature, that was its name. 20 So Adam gave names to all cattle, to the birds of the air, and to every beast of the field. But for Adam there was not found a helper comparable to him. 21 And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept; and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place. 22 Then the rib which the Lord God had taken from man He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man. 23 And Adam said:“This is now bone of my bonesAnd flesh of my flesh;She shall be called Woman,Because she was taken out of Man.” 24 Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. 25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.

This week: The Cause of Sin

Genesis 3:1-6 NKJV

1 Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said to the woman, “Has God indeed said, ‘You shall not eat of every tree of the garden’?” 2 And the woman said to the serpent, “We may eat the fruit of the trees of the garden; 3 but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God has said, ‘You shall not eat it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die.’ ” 4 Then the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die. 5 For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” 6 So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate. She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate.
