The Gospel & Sanctification

Thinking about the battle we wage against the spiritual forces of darkness and evil in the heavenly places, we need to talk about no condemnation. We need to talk about the payment being made in Christ’s blood. But we also need to talk about freedom from sin’s dominion and the ability in Christ to walk in newness of life....

Read With Me: Outgrowing the Ingrown Church - Week 5

There was a time when during our announcements on a Sunday morning, we would essentially communicate that going to a Missional Community was more important than showing up on Sunday mornings. Our hope in that was to show how important the life of the church outside of Sunday mornings was incredibly important, more so than our churched culture here in Fargo usually believes...
