Bonafide

Why This
Series


JOIN US JANUARY 1 - MARCH 5 AT 10 A.M.

The Bonafide series is nine messages in the uncompromising New Testament book of James. James grabs our attention with pointed speech about everday life. Likewise, the Bonafide series will cut to the heart and challenge us as we begin the new year. 

James' concern is for a true and practical Christianity. He urges believers to not only hear the Bible's message but embrace and follow it with heart, soul, mind and strength. He exhorts us to be those whose works match their faith both in speech and actions, whether in times of plenty or suffering. He also covers practical topics like the weight of our words, the nature of conflict and the role of the church in healing.

We invite you to join us!
