God created man in his own image to glorify Him. This is the only source of meaning and purpose in the universe. Man glorifies God more than the stars, more than the creatures. Only man is in relationship to God as created in God's image. The image of God was greatly corrupted and marred in the fall, but is restored by Jesus through the gospel of grace. Ultimately, then all whom God calls are conformed to the image of Christ.
Does the Bible mention aliens? The Bible does declares the existence of extraterrestrial beings, but perhaps not in the way you would imagine.
Quality is Low. We had an equipment failure right before the service.
The world's population has passed 8 billion. There are hundreds of thousands of souls born every day. Many still need to hear the gospel. Pastor Jim Scudder, having just returned from Asia, will bring a message that will challenge us all.
Today Pastor Bill Bradshaw starts a series on Romans. Authored by Paul while he was in Corinth Roman's is a book filled with a wealth of wisdom and insight into the heart of God for humanity. Pastor Bradshaw draws a contrast between the righteous and the unrighteous and how God reveals Himself to each. Live by faith this week under God's righteousness. God bless!
Is the universe eternal or has a beginning? Who created the universe? How did the universe come into existence? If God created the universe, how did He do so? What role does faith play in understanding the creation of the universe? This sermon grapples with these questions and addresses them with biblical authority.
As we continue looking at the Solar System and finding Evidence For God, we take a few minutes to discuss the anti-Biblical and anti-scientific theory of planetary formation based upon the Big Bang model of the Origin of the Universe called, "The Core Accretion Model".
There are countless myths, theories, and beliefs about the origin of the universe and, specifically, of human life. We either came from something personal (God or gods) or impersonal (a process like evolution). We are either the result of time + chance or we are the deliberate creation of a purposeful God. How we answer this foundational question, "Where did I come from?" is vitally important, because it impacts our view of identity, purpose, morality, and more.
Who is Jesus? Hebrews 1:1-3There's the worldview of diversity that wants to say that Jesus is a truth but He's not the truth. No, the author of Hebrews says that Jesus is God's final word. He is the way, the truth, and the life. Or our Muslim friends who want to believe that Jesus was a prophet but He wasn't the final, the greatest prophet; no, you have to wait until Mohammad until you get God's final word. The author of Hebrews is standing up on his toes and he's saying, "No! Jesus is God's final word, not Mohammad. Jesus is God's fullest revelation of who He is and how He saves." And then we live in a day and age where Mormonism is expanding in the world and Mormonism claims to have an ongoing revelation, more revelation than we've ever had before. And the author of Hebrews is saying, "No! Jesus is the final word."What is the most important question in the Bible?The most important question in all of Scripture comes from Jesus, and he asks it very simply: "But who do you say that I am?"

III. The King of glory assuring believers.
A. Christ defeated our enemies.
B. Christ came to dwell with His Church forever.
We close out our segments on the Book of Enoch with several final examples of error and distortion. We have the infallible word of God in the 66 books of our King James Bible and the Book of Enoch does not belong IN that Bible.
