On Sunday, May 19, at 11:30 a.m. we will begin a new series entitled “Knowing Christ”. The apostle Paul tells us that knowing Christ is the most important thing in life (Philippians 3:7-9). 

Yet, rather than letting God’s word show us how this is done, we are often drawn to what comes naturally for humankind: traditionalism and legalism.  If we are not careful, we, too, can fall victim to this tendency towards traditions, laws, and rules. These are the primary markers for any other religion in the world created by men. 

But in Jesus Christ, we follow a person, not a rule book.  We worship a living, active God, not a set of commandments etched in stone.  We are hosts to the personal, indwelling Holy Spirit, not a list of unyielding traditions.
