His Passion, Our Power

How Christ Gives Life to the Church

Passion: the suffering and death of Jesus
Power: strength; a source or means of supplying energy

The night before Jesus was arrested, his first twelve disciples fought for position, slept through prayer, and cowered in fear. But just a few weeks later, they were preaching to thousands, standing up to persecution, and growing daily. The events of those weeks between changed everything.

Join us starting March 7 as we trace those transformative events from the suffering of the Son to the sending of the Spirit in Luke and Acts. 

As we journey from Good Friday to Pentecost, we’ll see not only how Christ transformed them, but how he continues to give life to his church today by the Holy Spirit.

Sermon Review

March 7 – The Trial of Jesus – God in the Dock – Kevin Rogers

If Jesus uses the same standards to judge me that I’ve used to judge him, will I be acquitted?

March 14 – The Crucifixion of Jesus – The Crucifixion of the Christ - Robin Boisvert

At a certain time and in a certain place, a space-time event occurred. A certain man, a God-man was crucified and died. Significant? World-changing? Nothing else comes even close. Nothing is more important than this.

March 21 – The Death of Jesus – Reckon with the Cross - Kevin Rogers

Heaven, Jesus, and the onlookers responded to the cross. How will you respond?

March 28 – The Burial of Jesus – The Burial of Jesus - Robin Boisvert

The burial of Jesus was an emphatic confirmation that Jesus was dead. Yet, after one dark Saturday, he would rise again.

April 4 - The Crucifixion of Jesus - Convinced of the Resurrection - Kevin Rogers

There are only two responses to the resurrection: it is either an idle tale, or it is something we behold and then marvel.
