 OUR VISION

Depending on Christ we will Reach our world with the gospel to see lives completely Transformed.

 
In John 15:5 Jesus says; “I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.” At Stone Creek Church, and as followers of Christ, we are dependent on Jesus for everything, because apart from Him we can do nothing. We must depend on Christ in all things and for all things just as an infant child depends on his parents for his welfare.
 
We depend on Christ through three core values; Relying on the Word, Constant Prayer, and Authentic Worship.
 
 
In Mark 16:15 Jesus tells his follower to “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.” At Stone Creek Church and as followers of Christ we recognize that it is our responsibility to reach our community and our world with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Evangelism must be natural, relational, and intentional. We believe that reaching the world with the Gospel is not a mission given to the spiritual elite, but to all followers of Christ. It is each of our calling to be missionaries in our families, our jobs, our schools, and our neighborhoods. It is also our responsibility to do everything within our ability to see people evangelized all throughout the world by either going, sending, or supporting foreign missionaries.
 
We will reach our world with the Gospel through two core values: Relational Outreach and Strategic Missions

 
2 Corinthians 5:17 tells us “therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.” Transformation is a key word in our faith. Without transformation we are left in our sin and destined for eternal destruction. With transformation we are made completely new with a new life and a new destination. Through the power of the Holy Spirit the worst sinner can become a righteous minister for Christ. We want to join with the Holy Spirit in his work of spiritual transformation.
 
We are transformed and seek transformation for others through the core value of Intentional Discipleship

One Small Step Part 6: In His Steps

Do you want to take one small step towards Christ today? Then pick up the pace. Make sure you stay in step with Christ through the word and prayer. Make sure you don't let you past stop you from following Jesus. Make sure you don't try to get to the road in one sprint, but just make it to the bush a few feet in front of you. Pace yourself and keep Jesus in your sights.

Do you want to make one small step towards Christ today? Then simply see what Jesus did, determine what he would do, and then do that! He loved, cared for, befriended, and ministered with outcasts. He forgave, served, gave, and prayed. He preached repentance, obeyed God's commands, and eventually humbled himself to suffer for us by dying on the cross. So... do that! It won't be easy... but it will change the world. Following In Christ's Steps Often Means Leaving The Easy Path.

    One Small Step Part 5: Drop Those Bags

    So we continue to walk after Christ. We take step after step after step following our Lord wherever he goes. But as we follow in his steps... as we try to follow his lead, Satan isn't going to make it easy. He's going to do whatever he can do to get us off track. Satan is working overtime to derail us, isn't he? Look with me at Hebrews 12:1. “Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us.” We run after Christ, while all of Heaven cheers us on. But sometimes as we run, one small step after one small step, we pick up all kinds of baggage along the way, and it begins weighing us down. If we have too much baggage we will fall behind and fall out of step with Christ. And who's handing us the bags... Satan. Jesus says, leave all that behind... Satan says... hey, you need to hold onto this. Listen, you need to drop the baggage that Satan is trying to get you to keep to keep you from following Christ. When you take the first step in following Christ, which as we saw last week was trusting in Christ through faith and repentance, Satan will do everything he can to wreck you. He knows he can't take away your salvation so he tries to wreck your sanctification by weighing you down with all kinds of baggage. Today, we need to drop those bags. Or, as I was going to name this sermon “drop it like it's hot,” but 1996 wanted their phrase back so. Listen, it's imperative that we understand this today... If We Want To Run After Christ We Need To Leave Satan's Baggage In The Dust. Today I want us to see 4 types of baggage that Satan wants us to hold onto and Jesus want's us to leave in the dust.

    One Small Step Part 4: Established By The Lord

    So what does it mean that God establishes our steps?  I think we struggle with verses like this because they seem to weigh against our autonomy, our free will. Do verses like this mean that we really don't have a choice in the matter? Do they mean that when I make a step it wasn't really my decision to make that step, but instead God was making me make that step? And if that is the case, do I have any freedom to make my own decisions and take my own steps? Who's actually taking my steps? Me or God? And, does it really matter?  Well the short answer is yes, yes, and yes. But the answer is more complicated and at the same time more simple than that. Today I want us to recognize something so fundamental to our faith that it determines how we take our steps. As believers who everyday struggle to take small steps in God's way we need to get this... My Steps May Be My Own, But I Can Never Walk Outside God's Sovereign Path.

    One Small Step Part 3: Are We There Yet
    Don't we all get frustrated and impatient at times? Aren't we all, at times, just like kids in the car on the trip to the beach who keep saying, “are we there yet.” But there is joy in the journey isn't there? There's something worth celebrating about each step of the journey. I think it's important this morning that we “Don't Miss The Journey For The Destination.  So, we know the destination... we know that we are called to perfection... and even though we can't achieve it in this lifetime, we keep pressing on as though we must We press on towards perfection because Christ has saved us and loved us and now we want to love him through the way we live this life. We repent of our sin and turn to walk after him. And everyday we walk, step by step, closer to Him and what he wants for us. Everyday we strive after a greater spiritual maturity. And it's hard, and sometimes we mess up, and sometimes we move slower than others. But we know that there is grace and mercy with our God who is patient with us. And if he is patient with us, we can also be patient. Rather than throw our arms up and give up, rather than think that we are failures at this whole Christian thing, we recognize that we have made it to the bush. We aren't there yet.. but we aren't where we were either. And so we proclaim... We have made some movement and that is worth celebrating. Every single step forward is a step worth celebrating... the journey may be hard, and long, but it's all a part of God's plan to get you to glory... so Don't Miss the Journey For the Destination.

    One Small Step Part 2: Get Past The Past

    Our struggle isn't simply that we get bored or frustrated with small steps. Yes, we don't like small steps. We like to dream big dreams but we don't like to take small steps. But, it's not just because we are overwhelmed by the journey. There's something else that is keeping us from taking those steps. There's something holding us back isn't there? And you know what it is right? Say it with me, “My... Past.”

    It's our past. It's the reason why we don't like to make resolutions, it's the reason we struggle with commitments, it's the reason why we often stay in places that God has not called us to stay. We don't progress because, “I've tried it before and I got hurt, or I failed, or it didn't work.” God, I can't take that next step, because last time I took that step I fell and it hurt and I'm not sure I can get past it now. And here's something you need to understand. God gets it. God knows that our pasts are huge obstacles to moving forward. Look with me if you would at a passage I came across in the book of Lamentations. If you are looking for encouragement... I would encourage you not to read the book of lamentations. But there is one passage that is really good... the whole point of the book hinges on this passage right here. It says in Lamentations 3:19-23 that we will struggle with our past but the love of God and his mercies are new every morning. How do we move past our past? How do we take the small step past our past everyday? By recognizing that God is good and his mercy is new every morning.

    Today I want us to see that we can leave our past in the past. We can get past our past and start moving forward. Today I want you to know that... Your Past Can Only Hold You Back As Long As You Choose To Trust In It More Than The Mercy And Love Of Christ .

    One Small Step Part 1: Day To Day

    Many people consider the height of human achievement to be the moment Neil Armstrong stepped out of the LEM, walked down the ladder, bounced onto the surface of the moon, and said these famous words... “One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” Now we all know these famous words... but do we truly understand the gravitas of what they mean. Do we understand what a giant leap it was in the history of the world and in the advancement of innovation and technology? Exactly how many small human steps did it take to get to this small step on the moon?Are you aware that your lives are a series of small steps, one building on another. Small choices from birth that have formed who you really are. The distance from your beginning to now is a million miles long... but that distance still consists of small steps. Small steps that we rarely ever think of. Right? We don't like to think about small steps really. Why? Because we don't like small steps. What we like is big dreams. We love to dream big dreams but we don't like to take small steps.This morning we begin a journey of small steps that lead to big change. Here's your first small step! Depend on Jesus Christ! Daily depend on Jesus Christ. You don't need to take another step until you can take this step. Everyday determine to begin your day by hearing his voice and meditating on his word and depending on him to establish your steps. Your Destiny Is Determined By Day To Day Decisions. Your destiny is determined by day to day dependency on Jesus.
