Unity of The Spirit
In this special teaching edition of Basic Gospel, Bob Christopher and the team take a look at "unity". We all have unity of the Spirit through our salvation. Everyone is saved in the same way - at a point in time we crossed over from death to life....
Restore Him Gently
We all want to do church better. But the reality is the church is made up of imperfect people. So how do we do church in the midst of our imperfections. How do we deal with church discipline? If God is disciplining us as children should we also listen...
Celebrating the New
It's such good news... the fact that Jesus Christ is alive. As believers we have a couple of ways to celebrate that. Baptism-a celebration of the day when we came to Christ and the Lord's Supper. We celebrate many different ways. But what does the...
Love is Our Testimony
The church is an assembly of believers. We've been called out by Jesus Christ into a single body... the assembling together by one spirit into one body. We all serve different purposes, but when we do this together in unity, compelled by the love of...

No Longer Foreigners and Strangers
There are some great passages that talk about the church. And one of those is Ephesians 2:19-20 "Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizens with God's people and also members of his household, built on the foundation...
Christ - The Head of the Church
What is the world is the church? That's a question in the minds of people everywhere. So many consider a building the church. But the church is the body of Christ. We are the church. Colossians 1:13-18 "...And he is the head of the body, the church;...
What Has God Predestined?
Today we're going to look at this doctrine of predestination. When we look at this in Romans and Ephesians we see Jew and Gentile. God made one out of two. In Acts we see Peter going to the household of a Gentile and declared to them the wonders of...
Interview with Dr. Tom Davis
We welcome Dr. Tom Davis to the program today. I've known Tom nearly my entire life. It's been amazing to see God's work in our lives. Tom has been the pastor at Due West UMC Marietta Georgia ( http://duewest.org ) for 17 years. Bob talks to Tom about...
A Spiritual House
We're talking about the church made up of Jew and Gentile. When we come to Christ we become part of the church. We are called out to belong to Jesus Christ and we have a wonderful mission in this world. Peter states it this way 1 Peter 2:4,5 "...you...
One New Man...
It's very interesting to read about the church in the Scriptures. I look at Sundays and see it as the most segregated day of the week. We gather together in our like minded groups. But that's not the way the church is to be. We see in Ephesians...
Interview with Jeremy White

The Builder and Architect
Last month we learned about who we are... our identity. This month we're talking about the church. We ask the question, what is church? The building is just a building. The church is made of of believers. In Matthew we see that Jesus is the builder...
Can I Sit at Your Table?
One of the most awkward times for the kid is the lunchroom. They're wondering which table to approach and to what group they belong. Wanting to belong is a lifetime issue. If we understand our identity in Christ we have a new identity we can hold fast...
We Belong to Another
We're called children of God. It's one of the greatest things we have. We now know who we are. So many look for their identity elsewhere. For us God has answered those questions. In Romans 7:4 we learn that we "died to the law through the body of...
Adopted as Sons
Who in the world are you? If you've come to Christ by faith, you are a child of God. That's not just a nice thing to say, it's based on the change made in us through the Holy Spirit. Identity is central to our daily living. We live out who we think we...
The End of the Law
We all know God is real... He exists. But at some point we ask the question, "What does He think of me?" and we struggle with that because we know who we are. Because of the sacrifice of Christ we have a new identity. Romans 10:4 "Christ is the end of...
A New Creation in Christ
So what is the practical application of our identity in Christ? God didn't just give us a new label. He made us new creations in Christ. * Thanks for moving to OnePlace. It's great to listen on the app. * Thanks for moving to OnePlace. It's great to...
Our Lives are Hidden With Christ
Colossians 3:1-4 is such a rich passage. "Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your...
