Churches in the Shape of Scripture (Part 13)

This is the final sermon in the “Churches in the Shape of Scripture” series.

Churches in the Shape of Scripture (Part 12)

This sermon is a continuation of our special sermon series titled “Churches in the Shape of Scripture.” Is our practice of male leadership in our assemblies an out-of-date, sexist, chauvinistic mindset?

Churches in the Shape of Scripture (Part 10)

This sermon titled “Musical Praise in the Assembly” looks at what is probably the most obvious difference between us and many of our Bible believing friends.

Churches in the Shape of Scripture (Part 2)
