Pastor’s Letter

Dear Bible Center family & friends,

Welcome to church! Thanks for visiting in person or tuning in online or on TV.

This weekend we continue our 4-week Transformed series. So far, we’ve studied:

  • The BIGGEST Benefit of Following Jesus
  • What’s Our Responsibility in Salvation and Transformation?

Today, our friend and Pastor of Discipleship and Multiplication, Mike Graham, will bring a message that declares, “You are enough!” All of us long to hear those words, right?

Unfortunately, throughout our lives, we hear voices, have experiences, and receive messages telling us that we have fallen short, that we don’t measure up, and that we will never make the grade. The Bible teaches believers that—in Jesus—the transformation process has begun and that we are truly enough in Him!

You can catch up by watching or listening to any of these messages on our series page or on our app. As a reminder, each sermon this winter lays the foundation for our Member Statement of Faith revision, set to go into effect March 28th, per congregational approval.

Join me in offering up a prayer to God on Pastor Mike’s behalf, and let’s ask God to continue transforming us into the image of Jesus through the reading and teaching of His Word and through our gathered worship today.

With you for the gospel and for the community,

Matt Friend • Lead Pastor
