Missionary Michael Brown urges us to live out our faith in complete obedience to Christ. We are called to not only know God’s heart but to act upon it. Obedience is either complete or compromised: which will you choose?
Scripture: John 15:12-14
Pastor Mimi Kim considers the lives of Simeon and Anna who eagerly awaited the coming of Jesus, and how we now wait for the blessed hope that is Jesus’ second coming. During this Christmas season, are we waiting proactively with great expectation, just like Simeon and Anna did?
Scripture: Luke 2:21-38
Su Kim walks us through the Hall of Faith and how God grows our faith. Just like a tree that bears fruit, we gain faith by abiding in Christ and acting on our faith. Are we anchored in the God who will never let us down?
Scripture: Hebrews 11:1-13
Pastor Kyu Kim asks: are we hearing the Holy Spirit? The first missionaries were sent from the church Antioch after they sought God’s heart. We are called to be the church of open door: to send out and to welcome in. Am I willing to go?
Scripture: Acts 13:1-3
Pastor Kyu Kim asks: are we praying fervently? Are we surprised when God answers our prayers? Hope is when God breaks into our world and brings it out of despair and impossible situations. Our hope is expressed through our prayers!
Scripture: Acts 12
Pastor Mimi Kim explores four themes from the life of John the Baptist to help us truly prepare for Jesus’ return. In this Christmas season we are reminded to focus on Christ and to keep bearing spiritual fruit. So, let us heed the voice calling in the wilderness and be forerunners of Christ.
Scripture: Matthew 3:1-10
Pastor Kyu Kim teaches about Antioch – the first Gentile church. It was founded by ordinary people – not superstars of the Bible – and became the center for missions in the early church. Again we see how Barnabas encouraged the church and, together with Paul, made many disciples. God will use those He chooses, so we must prepare ourselves!
Scripture: Acts 11:19-26
Pastor Kyu Kim reminds us: Never write anyone off, for God can reach anyone. God always opens our hearts to reach people. God is opening doors for us to expand His kingdom. Pastor Q takes us through the lives of Cornelius and Peter to see how God opened heaven and doors for them.
Scripture: Acts 10:1-48
Pastor Kyu Kim challenges us to build HOPE all around us. Barnabas saw the best in Paul when no one else was willing and encouraged him to go on. Tabitha abounded with kindness and charity and encouraged many widows. Are you a builder of hope?
Scripture: Acts 9:19-43
Pastor Kyu Kim reminds us that God can reach anyone and that we should never write anyone off. On the road to Damascus, Saul encountered God. He then experienced not a sudden conversion but rather a sudden surrender after Ananias obeyed God and went to him. PQ asks us: are we on our Damascus Road? Are we an Ananias to anyone?
Scripture: Acts 9:1-22
Pastor Mimi Kim teaches some lessons from Noah’s four word message: It’s going to rain! God’s vengeance and punishment are coming, but the good news is that God’s people will be spared. Noah’s faith and obedience to God’s word show us the path to righteousness.
Scripture: Genesis 6:5-8
Pastor Kyu Kim dives into the evangelism of Philip, the only named evangelist in the Bible. In contrast, Simon the magician had no repentance and only wanted to look good and increase his own power. God used Philip to influence the entire culture of Samaria. PQ asks us: where is our Samaria?
Scripture: Acts 8:4-25
Pastor Kyu Kim shares the amazing witness of Stephen, who stood firm in God’s word despite being falsely accused and ultimately stoned. Though God did not save Stephen from an unjust death, He used the ensuing persecution to spread the believers far and wide to witness to the world.
Scripture: Acts 6:8-8:4
