    WTDASCC Part 3: Authentic Worship (Romans 12:1-2)
    When God speaks it demands a response and the way we respond to God as believers is what we call worship.   In the Old Testament followers of God would worship God predominantly through the act of sacrifice.  Their whole system of worship revolved around the killing of animals and the spilling of their blood for the remission of sins.  Thank God, Christ came to be the final sacrifice doing away with that system, but today we are still called to sacrificial worship.  Romans 12:1-2 tells us that we are to be "living sacrifices."  That means that who we are as authentic disciples of Christ is who we are in our worship.  We are authentic worshipers when we live everyday as living sacrifices for Christ.  For us at Stone Creek Church we say that authentic worship is a lifestyle of joyful obedience, not reluctant observance.  Be real, be the church, worship Jesus.  Be set apart, seek God's will, and live sacrificially in response to Christ's sacrifice.

    WTDASSC Part 2: Biblical Teaching and Preaching (2 Timothy 4:2-4)
    Depending on Christ we will reach our world with the Gospel to see lives completely transformed.  One of the ways we depend upon Christ is through our first core value; a reliance on the Word of God.  It is the responsibility of every believer to have a reliance upon the Word as the absolute standard of truth.  They must read it, meditate on it, memorize it, and share it.  The church's responsibility is to encourage the individual believer to engage with the Bible but we cannot make anyone actually do it.  What we can do is teach and preach the entirety of the Bible.  Biblical teaching and preaching is what the deal is at Stone Creek Church.  Whether it's popular or not, whether it is in season or not, we must preach the Word of God unfiltered.

    WTDASCC Part 1: Gospel Centered Vision (Mt 28:18-20, Acts 2:42-47)

    We may have changed our location, we may have changed our name, but the same spiritual blood we had at our birth in 1914 still flows in our veins. Therefore it is our responsibility to reclaim the vision, to a lesser extent, for the sake of the legacy of Third Avenue Church, and to a greater extent, for the sake of God's Glory! When we look back at what our church was able to accomplish for the kingdom 80 years ago we may be tempted to think, there's no way God can use us like that again... but this morning I'm here to tell you, if we reclaim God's vision for the Church, the best days are not behind us but yet to come. Let me say that again, if we reclaim God's vision for this church... the best days for Stone Creek Church are not behind us but in front of us.
