As we are going through the rest of the New Testament starting with Romans, I want to bring these NT churches back to life. I don’t want to just give the key verse, the main theme, or the outline of each book. I’m sorry…that can be boring! Instead, I want to take a look at each of these churches, their surroundings, their city, their culture, their people, their problems, etc. Then take a look at why the NT authors wrote what they wrote, and why the Holy Spirit inspired them to do so.

There is nothing like going to a college football game! Having to park 2 miles away. Everyone dressed in the same colors. Walking through the tailgating smells of grilled meats and the glows of satellite TV’s. Feeling the energy as you enter the stadium. Experiencing a common bond with thousands of others during the game. Cheering as loud as you can and going crazy and no one thinking a thing about it! And its all ultimately about what? You got it! 22 men on a field in super tight, shiny pants that make skinny jeans look like hipsters are sagging. All with the goal of moving an inflated leather bladder across a line of paint? Don’t get me wrong, I love college football! I’m just saying…college football ain’t got nothing on God’s goal for the church! The energy, the passion, the commonality, the emotion, the excitement, the bond, the message, and the outcome. We’re talking a gathering of people hyped up because the God-man stepped into their world to save them. So here’s a study to get you excited about the church by sharing the same view and passion that Jesus has for His church!
CBSM will join Capshaw this Wednesday night for our first annual Missions Overview service. In this special service, you will hear many teen testimonies from our summer mission trips to Gulf Shores (Beach Camp), San Diego (Advance Trip), and Jamaica (Graduate Trip). These will be both video and live testimonies from some of our teens. On top of the teen testimonies, you’ll also hear from our college students who went to Chicago, and some of our adults who went on various other mission trips this year. It all cranks up at 6:30pm in our main Capshaw auditorium. We’ll see you there!
Revelation 12:11, “And they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they loved not their lives even unto death.”
