Convictions: What We Believe

Do Christians have nonnegotiable beliefs, and if so, what are they? Join us in this eight-week series as we look at eight key topics in evangelical theology that all Christians agree about. Our faith will be challenged as we ask ourselves, “When it comes to my beliefs, what is important and why?

God in the flesh, Jesus Christ, died on the cross, rose from the dead, and ascended to heaven. Christ will return to earth to conclude history and restore God’s plan for humanity. Jesus has forgiven us and empowers us to follow him in service and love.

Service time is at 10:00am... we will be live-streaming the service online at Open Road Fellowship.

Have you ever been confident about something (like, really confident) only to find out later that you were really wrong? It happens! We're all bound to get things wrong once in a while, but when our eyes are opened to the truth, what matters is that we change our minds. But when it comes to Jesus, it's not
always easy to know what the truth is or how to share that truth with others. What do we do with all of the big questions that hard to answer? Is Jesus still trustworthy even when His followers mess up or life gets hard? In this 4-week series, Look and See, God invites us to look, and then see, that Jesus is someone we can believe in, Jesus teaches us new things, God can use your story to help others see, and God gives us the strength to keep following Jesus.

Okay, here's the deal. I've been a Christian for a while now, but when I first started to believe, I had no idea what it meant to follow Jesus. I thought trusting Jesus meant God was going to solve all my problems and that Jesus was going to fill my heart with happiness and peace and love all the time! No. That's not how this works. It turns out, following Jesus is actually really hard sometimes. In the book of Hebrews (that's in the Bible), following Jesus is compared to running a race. If you've ever run a marathon, you know those are hard. You keep chasing that finish line because you know it's going to be worth it in the end, but — wow, it's not easy. Whether you've been following Jesus for a while or you'll still trying to decide what you believe, let me say this: yes, it's hard sometimes. But yes, it's worth it. And along the way, God gives us the strength to keep following Jesus.

Join us as we study from the Word of God to grow as the "sons and daughters of God."  We also will take time out for some fun and games, relaxing and connecting with each other.  See ya' there!!

God the Father created everything that exists out of nothing. Where do you go when you start a book? The very beginning. And when we open the Bible to the first chapter of the first book, this truth is what we read: “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth” (Genesis 1:1). The question for believers should not be did God create everything, but why did God create everything? When we say God is the Creator, and that he created everything—including you—that implies intention. God created you for a purpose.

So I'm one of those people who learns most of my life lessons through trial and error. A sign could tell me to be careful because the floors are wet, but I'm probably going to ignore it, and will learn my lesson in the half second it takes for me to realize that I've slipped, and that it's going to hurt. But there is one thing that does help me learn without having to actually experience everything for myself, and that's when people I trust tell me stories about what they've learned. I might ignore a "Wet Floor" sign, but if my friend tells me they wiped out in that same hallway, I'm going be careful. The same is true when it comes to faith. I didn't pay much attention to God for a long time, but that changed when a friend told me Jesus was changing her life. So if you know Jesus and you need the reminder, don't forget — God can use your story to help others see.

There is only one God, who exists eternally as a Trinity of three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Each member of the Trinity is fully and equally God yet personally distinct from the others. The mystery of the Trinity confronts us with a leap of faith: Will we believe it or not?

Hey, can I be honest about something? Sometimes (or maybe a lot of the time) when I'm at church or
hanging out with Christians, I get this feeling that I'm not supposed to ask a lot of questions. Sometimes the questions I want to ask are probably pretty basic questions about God, or the Bible, or why Christians believe certain things — but I get a little worried I'm the only one who doesn't know the answer, so I don't really want to ask. Other times, my questions are, I guess, kind of hard to answer, like why God would let certain things happen. I'm not trying to be rude though, I'm just trying to be real about the questions I still have about this whole God thing. If you can relate, let me tell you what I've learned. It's okay that you don't know all the answers, but God is definitely inviting you to ask the questions. Because as we grow, Jesus teaches us new things.

The foundation of Scripture makes our faith complete. God’s Word provides us with a foundation upon which we can build our life. Reading and engaging with Scripture is profitable. We are taught, and this means Scripture is a vessel of learning. There is conviction because God’s Word has a way of capturing our hearts. There is correction because the Bible tells us what’s right and wrong. Scripture provides us with training in righteousness; like on-the-job training, we grow as we learn about the righteousness of Christ. Scripture does all of this so that we are “complete” and “equipped”: ready to live out our faith.
