Pursuit and Promise
Over the next few months, we’re going to journey through the book of 2 Peter in our series Pursuit and Promise (Bible Promises). In the opening of Peter’s second letter, he says that we’ve received precious promises in Jesus Christ, but that we must make every effort to grow in qualities that will lead to a fruitful life. These two ideas run tandem with one another throughout this letter and offer tremendous instruction for helping us grow as followers of Christ.

Pursuit and Promise // False Prophets and Teachers
Pastor Steve Berger | February 16, 2020
In Part 4, Pastor Steve speaks on 2 Peter chapter 2 where Peter is warning against false prophets and teachers who had infiltrated the Church, specifically Gnostics and Judaizers. Sadly, and it seems in ever-increasing ways, the modern-day church is dealing with the same issues. Pastor Steve addresses the homosexual agenda, hyper-grace, and universalism. The bottom line is that you are accountable for what you believe, either God’s Truth or the Devil’s lies.
Pursuit and Promise // Our Firm Foundation
Pastor Rob Rogers | February 9, 2020
In the third part of our series, Pastor Rob addresses many of the common objections to Christianity and the revelation of God to humanity through His Word. In 2 Peter 1:16-21, Peter goes after one of the very first things the enemy wants to undermine in their culture and our culture today: Can I trust what the Bible says and can I trust what the writers are telling me?
Pursuit and Promise // The God Guarantee
Pastor Steve Berger | February 2, 2020
In Part 2 of Pursuit and Promise, Pastor Steve dives deeper into 2 Peter 1:5-11, where Peter mentions eight things we need to grab hold of and abound in – faith, virtue, knowledge, self-control, perseverance, godliness, brotherly kindness, and love. Peter is drawing from his well of experience, successes, and failures to show us that “The God Guarantee” of these things is that we’ll never be unfruitful, never stumble to total failure, and we will receive an abundant entrance into Heaven.
Pursuit and Promise // Onward and Upward
Pastor Rob Rogers | January 26, 2020
Pastor Rob kicks of Pursuit and Promise with an introduction to three related ideas Peter puts forth that are incredibly critical and profound for the life of every follower of Jesus – change is possible, change is gradual, and change is promised. God has given us everything in Christ that we need to grow to maturity and is with us every step of the way.
