Called Out Of Death

Ephesians 2:1–3 [1] And you were dead in the trespasses and sins [2] in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience—[3] among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind.  Consider…

GO, No Cape Wearing Super-Christians Are Coming

Years ago I found myself teaching a course at a seminary in Southeast Asia. While there I planned to connect with a few IMB missionaries. I was early for our meeting so I waited at a table in the corner. I remember almost being nervous as I waited. These were the real deal, IMB missionaries in a life-threatening environment. They had to sacrifice many basic comforts and faced persecution, yet bravely shared Jesus to whole communities who had never before heard His name. I expected…

Study Ephesians

There are precious treasures ahead for TCBC in 2024! This Sunday we begin our 7-month, verse-by-verse study of Ephesians. This New Testament epistle is rich in doctrine and prescriptive instruction for Christian living. Notice two overarching themes. First, in Christ, we are called according to His purpose. Second, in Christ, we walk according to His calling. We have been set apart in Christ by the grace of God for his glory, therefore let us live accordingly. In order to help…

By Faith: Joshua

As we’ve been studying and preaching through Hebrews this year, we’ve seen the resounding beat of the same drum over and over: Jesus is better!We’ve looked at answers to the question– “Better than what?” He is better than the revelation of the angels and the prophets (1:1-2). He is better than the rest that Joshua could not give (4:8-10). He is better than the high priests who had to offer continual sacrifices, including for their own sins (5:3, 9-10). He…

Pray For Those Who Govern

Elder Letter by Daniel Broyles It’s late. Raven, our dog, is hiding under some furniture. The booming echoes of random fireworks bring her anxiety. I, on the other hand, find an odd sense of calm in them. It means we’re celebrating. July 4th or Independence Day is a birthday of sorts. It is a marker for the beginning of our nation, the recognition of its government and authority. Hence, we celebrate. We live in and are a part of a…

Jesus Is Better

Who are you? It is such a simple yet profound question. How we identify ourselves is a confession of sorts. There are millions of connections, roles, achievements and failures, ideologies, and attributes by which we could describe our identity. How we define our identity gives insight to the way we see life and our place in it. The author of Hebrews writes to an audience who is practically struggling to answer this question. Rather than finding their identity in Jesus,…

Prepare To Gather

Because we exist for Him, Jesus followers gather with others for worship. We gather to celebrate the greatness and grace of God in Jesus Christ, to experience His unique presence in our midst, and to demonstrate that we belong to something bigger than ourselves: the Body of Christ. But gathering to worship is more than just being present in a room with other Jesus followers. It is intentional, active practice to worship, respond, sacrifice, and give. We have the honor…

5 Difference Making Practices To Gather Well
