About the Series

Summer 2022

Our highest calling is to love and glorify God. Often we get so focused on living for God and doing for God that we forget to set our gaze on God. The desire and goal of this series is to set our eyes, hearts, and souls on the beauty and majesty of God. The Bible actually tells us that if we continually and actively gaze and behold God, we will be transformed into His likeness. God reveals Himself to us through His Word. God will never be known fully, but He can be known truly.

And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is Spirit. (2 Corinthians 3:18)

Beholding God the Father

Regarded as the First Person of the Trinity. God as the Creator and Father of all people. Life-giver, Authority, and powerful Protector. Omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent with infinite power and mercy which goes beyond human understanding.

You Are Enough!

From Series: "Transformed"

“Have you changed?” That’s a question one spouse, friend, or family member may ask another. The truth is we’ve all changed. Actually, we’re changing every day—for better or for worse. To borrow a metaphor from one of our babbling West Virginia streams... we’re either rowing upstream or we’re being swept downstream. When it comes to our character, there’s no such thing as simply sitting still. The goal of this 4-week series is to think more biblically about our spiritual transformation after we’ve decided to follow Jesus. (Among Bible scholars, this is also known as sanctification, experiential theology, practical divinity, Christian ethics, or piety.) As we study through our church’s Member Statement of Faith update, we’re reminded that rich doctrinal truth is inseparably connected to a vibrant devotional life. Spiritual theology and formation are two sides of the same coin. It’s impossible to do one well without the other. God’s goal for revealing Himself, primarily through His Word, is so that we can know Him—completely realizing and engaging His presence in everyday life. Is this merely a religious substitute for self-help? Not at all. Though habits can be helpful, self-help can never ultimately transform our hearts. We don’t become like Jesus in the same way we train for a marathon or lose weight or study for an exam. So, if we can’t transform into the image of Jesus simply by wanting it more, praying more, reading our Bibles more, attending church more, taking communion more, or hanging out with other believers more... how are we transformed? How can we begin to close the gap between who we really are now and who God wants us to be?
