Advent - "The Songs of Christmas"

Songs are powerful because they are often a response to a profound experience. When we feel joy, we often burst forth in song. When we are deeply hurting, lament pours onto the pages. The songs we sing reflect what our hearts worship. This Advent, we are studying songs that were sung by Bible characters in response to God’s greatest gift, Jesus Christ.

WALK WORTHY

Jesus commands us that we are to make disciples as we “go” (Matthew 28:18). Lincroft Bible Church has a mission from God to make disciples. This has led us to our rally cry for this year: WALK WORTHY.  We want to take the next step in following Jesus and align ourselves with Him in our beliefs and actions and to grow in our purpose, mission, and identities as a church.

BOLD LOVE

As we have learned to love God deeply and to love one another passionately, we want our love to move outward toward others. We want to love our neighbors boldly. There is no better way to learn how to love boldly than to study the life of Jesus.  By boldly loving those with whom He came in contact, He has become our perfect example. For the next 12 weeks, we will be studying Luke 13-16 to observe how Jesus’ bold love to save sinners motivates us to love our neighbors boldly.

He is Risen Indeed

The gospel is a message of great depth and beauty but also of profound simplicity. Jesus has come to live the perfect life we have all failed to live. As the perfectly obedient sacrifice, Jesus offered Himself on the cross, taking the penalty of our sins so that we might be forgiven. But Jesus did not stay dead. He rose again, conquering sin, death, and the devil. Because of His resurrection, we can have a new spiritual life now and the promise of bodily resurrection later.

1 Corinthians 15 seems to explain these truths better than any other chapter of the Bible. For the next two weeks (and Good Friday), we will explore the depth, beauty, and simplicity of the gospel as found in 1 Corinthians 15.

One Another

The New Testament devotes considerable time to instructing the church in how to live as family. In fact, there are 59 “one another” commands in the New Testament, and 15 out of the 59 are the same: “love one another" (25%!). Therefore, how we treat one another is very important in God's eyes. This series will focus on providing practical instruction on loving each other well.

Love Well

Why do we as Christians gather together for worship? Asking such a question actually connects us to the people of Israel in profound ways. God has always been concerned with gathering people to Himself so that they might worship Him. It first began with Israel and now culminates in the church through our connection to Christ. Today, we will see how Israel’s gathering together for worship can inform the importance of our worship gatherings.

Love One Another

Loving well means that we love God deeply, love one another passionately, and love our neighbors boldly. We spent the Fall of 2021 learning to love God deeply. We are now turning our attention to what it means to love one another passionately. To guide our thinking about loving one another, we will be working through the book of 1 John. 1 John was written to help churches to know the one true God and to learn how to love one another.

Love Has Come - NEW.png

Love Has Come

As the people of Israel languished in exile, one question which arose for them about God was, “Have you rejected us forever?” It could have certainly seemed so, for from the end of Malachi to the beginning of the New Testament were 400 “silent years” where God did not send any prophets among the people. But when the New Testament opens, God comes to His people in love and He speaks through the birth of His son, Jesus Christ.

Behold Your God

In order to love well, we must know the God who loved us first, for the heart cannot love what the mind does not know. To know God more, we must know what he is like. Therefore, studying his attributes is one of the best ways to come to know him. As we walk through the book of Psalms, we will begin by seeing God as our refuge.  Cards with the "Attributes of God" can be downloaded and printed HERE.

  "LOVE DEFINED"

Love Defined

Love is a word that is easy to say but difficult to define with any precision. As Christians, we know that God is love. But what does that mean? And how does God's love influence our understanding of love? In 1 Corinthians 13, the apostle Paul lays out one of the most compelling descriptions and definitions of love ever put into words. This series explores what the Bible means by the word 'love' and how our love can be changed by God's love.

"SIDE BY SIDE:  MEN AND WOMEN IN THE CHURCH"

Side By Side:  Men and Women in the Church

What is a man? What is a woman? And why does it matter? Confusion reigns in our culture today about the meaning and purpose of human life. Too often we attempt to live as autonomous individuals rather than those in deep relationships with one another. In Side by Side, we explore God's original design for men and women, how it was corrupted by sin, but how God redeems it in Christ. 

"DAVID:  A FAITHFUL LIFE IN A COMPLICATED WORLD"

David, a Faithful Life in a Complicated World

King David faced many trials and complex circumstances. Yet through it all, he trusted in God and lived a faithful life before the Lord. A faithful life, however, does not mean perfect. David definitely failed (sometimes spectacularly). But through those failures, he turned from his sin and entrusted himself to the Lord. This series explores how David points us forward to the King we really need, Jesus. We will see how we can live faithful lives in a complicated (modern) world. 

"RENEW:  DEAD TO SIN.   ALIVE IN CHRIST"

Renew: Dead to Sin.
Alive in Christ.

In our sermon series, Renew: Dead to Sin, Alive in Christ, we found that we are saved by believing the gospel message, the good news that life with God is available through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. The gospel not only brings us into a right relationship with God, it is also the way we grow in our faith. We are made new through the gospel, but, as Romans 6-8 shows us, we are also becoming new. Romans 6-8 shows us how to live the new life we have in Christ and how to put Christ’s power on display in our own lives. You can download the study packet below.

THE GOSPEL OF MARK

The Unexpected King

In our Sermon Series, The Gospel of Mark, we will focus on the true King, Jesus Christ, who enters into public ministry by proclaiming the arrival of God's Kingdom.  The Gospel of Mark explains how to live as a follower of Christ, so join us as we look at His ministry and His journey to the cross.  You can download the study guide for The Gospel of Mark below.

"A THRILL OF HOPE"

A Thrill of Hope

Our sermon series,  A Thrill of Hope, comes from the lyrics of “O Holy Night.” If you remember the song, the very next line is, “a weary world rejoices.” It is hard to find a better description of our world right now. It is anxious, depressed, and weary. It needs hope. And that hope is found in Jesus Christ. He is the hope of the world.   Join us on Sundays to see how the gospel gives us hope and how we can share this hope with others.  You can download the discussion questions for each week below.

STRENGTHEN YOUR CORE

Strengthen Your Core

In our sermon series, Strengthen Your Core - Living Our Gospel Identity, we saw how core strength  allows the gospel to influence every area of our lives and to change those areas on a deeper and deeper level.   The gospel moves us from not only changing how we behave but also to shaping our motives, desires and loves.  You can download the discussion questions for each week below.
