The Power of God in the Lives of His People - Rich Bowman

10/7/2018

Creation: The story of creation is an astounding demonstration of the power of God. It does matter what we believe about origins. If we doubt the account of creation in Scripture we cast a shadow of doubt on the rest. Colossians 1:16 – God demonstrates His power by interrupting the natural order. Care for His […] The post The Power of God in the Lives of His People appeared first on Bethel Mennonite Church.

Text: Philippians 4:6,7 A few weeks ago we looked at Mark 11 and found some lessons about believing prayer. If we pray in faith God will help us. Sometimes when we pray the answers come immediately.

The Value of Identity - Brian Yoder

7/29/2018
More
Having an identity is important. When there is no history there is no identity. When there is no identity there is a tendency towards “redefining” an identity.

Joshua 24 – Remember your […] The post The Value of Identity appeared first on Bethel Mennonite Church.

Proverbs 11 – Since we cannot go back in time, we need to say, “God, this is where I am, but I’m willing to lay the past down and start from here.” When we give that which isn’t ours to keep, God will bless.

What “Mountains” do we face? God offers His wisdom and power through prayer. He will only give us good things, and will change us as take our needs to Him.

I Thessalonians 2:13-20; 3:1-11 We continue our study through the book of First Thessalonians. Today’s passage focuses on the perseverance of this church and Paul’s love for them— his “hope”, “joy”, and “crown” (v.19). Paul cared about discipling the Churches that he started.
