  • Christian Freedom

    Freedom in Christ is one of the sweetest gifts of the gospel. It’s also a topic that creates no small amount of confusion in the church. Are we free to do whatever the Bible commands?

  • Pastor's Blog: Thoughts On My Time in Seminary

    After four and a half years of study, I finally finished my Master of Divinity degree from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. Without question, it’s one of the best investments I’ve made in my ability to understand and apply the Word of God.For my own sake, and to encourage all who have supported me along the way, I wanted to write a short list of lessons learned during my time at Southern. The following is by no means exhaustive, nor are they ranked in order of importance.

  • International Missions Weekend Recap

    Our first annual Missions Weekend was a tremendous success on so many levels. I hope you enjoyed the time together as much as I did!Here are a just a few of my personal highlights, all of which are a distinct expression of God’s blessing on our church.

  • Deacons: A ministry of mercy

    Most of our Sunday morning preaching consists of working through entire books of the Bible from start to finish.

  • Pastor's Blog: Matthew's Summer Plans

      Earlier this morning, I read the following in Exodus 23:10-12. “For six years you shall sow your land and gather in its yield, but the seventh year you shall let it rest and lie fallow, that the poor of your people may eat; and what they leave the beasts of the field may eat. You shall do likewise with your vineyard, and with your olive orchard.

  • Men's and Women's Ministry at KingsWay

      "So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.” The God-given reality of gender has a profound impact on how we interpret the world. If you’re a man, it doesn’t matter what’s going on, you will interpret and respond to whatever situation you’re in as a man.
