The Gospel for Your Tongue

September 12th, 2021

Bryan Lilly continues his Pastoral Epistles class with a special look at Titus 3:5. He considers the phrase "washing of regeneration" as it is used in our liturgy for Holy Baptism and the Thirty-Nine Articles, comparing our theology of baptism to both Roman Catholicism and non-sacramental traditions.

Cleaner than Clean

August 29th, 2021

Bound to Jesus

August 22nd, 2021

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Joshua 24, in which Israel chooses to serve God, and John 6, in which Peter confesses that Jesus has the words of eternal life. When we are revealed to be promise-breakers, we need a savior who always keeps his promises.

The Pastoral Epistles (Part 2)

August 22nd, 2021

Bryan Lilly continues his class on the Pastoral Epistles with a look at the false teachers' doctrine and its fruit. Their contentiousness infected the church, bringing about division and disunity. That same contentiousness is found in each of us, innate, feeding on our unbelief, insecurity, and anger, looking for opportunities to reactivate. Finally, he explored at St. Paul’s testimony which shows us that the gospel is good medicine for all—the false teacher and the Christian alike.

Fools for Christ

August 15th, 2021
