Staying Saved

Listen to "Staying Saved" by Greg Sidders, Sunday, 10-28-18

If the gospel can be symbolized by a seed, and our hearts by soil, there are, in the church, some whose soil is too rocky for the seed to take root. They believe, but briefly.

How can you make sure your soil is such that the gospel, once implanted, remains rooted? How can you make sure you do not fall away?

In our study of 1 John 2:18-28 this Sunday, we will learn how to be among those whose faith is still strong when Jesus comes to take us home.

Do You Love Him?

Listen to "Do You Love Him?" by Greg Sidders, Sunday, 10-14-18

When what God did for us through His Son Jesus really sinks in, we cannot help but love Him for it. 

But how do we say to God, "I love You"?

With words and worship, yes. But, more powerfully, with actions. It is how we live that best communicates our love (or lack of love) for our heavenly Father.

This Sunday, we'll learn from 1 John 2:12-17 how to put love for God into action.

Traits of a True Christian

Listen to "Traits of a True Christian" by Greg Sidders, Sunday, 10-14-18

The language we use to describe salvation is varied-knowing God, being a Christian, having eternal life-but at the core of all that spiritual terminology is the critical question: Are you going to heaven? 

You may think you know the answer to that question, but how can you be certain? This Sunday at White Pine, we will be studying 1 John 2:3-11, which identifies three identifying marks of true faith. If you don't want to have to guess where you or a loved one stands with God, this study will give you the clarity you seek.

No Reason To Hide

Listen to "No Reason To Hide" by Greg Sidders, Sunday, 10-07-18

Imagine if an archeologist unearthed a letter from Jesus' best friend, written to people who didn't know Christ personally about how to get close to Him. How valuable would that letter be to you? How carefully would you want to read it?

We have the letter. 

It's called 1 John, and it's in the Bible. For the next several weeks, we are going to mine it for practical help in our quest to know God and follow Jesus. If you want to be 100% sure of your salvation and more fulfilled in your relationship with God, this is the series for you!

The Misfit

Listen to "The Misfit" by Greg Sidders, Sunday, 09-30-18

There are those who are used greatly by God, and then there are those who are, well, like you.

Whether it's because of your wiring, your priorities or your track record, you know that you're not the kind of person that Jesus would ever call on to do anything significant for Him.

Which is why He just might.

I hope you will join us at White Pine this Sunday to catch of glimpse of God's stubborn plan to use you like no one else.
