  • The Gospel and Personal Relationships

    Written by
    You and I are social beings by nature. We have been made that way. The very fact that we exist testifies to this fact, since life itself is conceived socially. Just as the human race could not succeed without social interaction, no single human being could either. Even the crazy mountain man that hasn't seen another human being for twenty years is a social being. He just interacts with animals and inanimate objects, instead of people. Our desire for friendships then, is a natural, God-given desire. This, I believe is at the root of what God meant when He said in the Garden, "It is not good for man to be alone." Despite the perfect goodness of the original creation itself, it all would have shriveled up and died if man were not given the opportunity to exercise and display that goodness with others like him in open, honest, and loving relationships and partnerships with them. This is one of the things that makes the scene of Genesis 3 so tragic. After rebelling against God in the Garden, Moses writes that the eyes of both were opened, and they knew that they were naked. And they sewed fig leaves together…

  • SCC Core Commitments: God-Centered Worship

    Written by
    A continuation of a series devoted to explaining some of the foundational commitments of our church. Today in broader evangelical culture, a lot of what is called worship by churches would better be described as "performance." In some cases, the worship leader's face is even shown on large screens as they "lead" worship. At SCC, we believe and strive to convey that congregational worship is not a performance, but in fact is a time intended to lift every heart and mind up to God and His glory, both in who He is and what He has done for us. The worship service is first and foremost a time to glorify and exalt God. Songs that we sing are chosen with this in mind. The way the Word is preached takes this into account as we gather to hear from the living God in the exposition of His Word. We give of our finances ultimately as an offering of worship to Him. We celebrate the Lord's Supper in obedience to Him and as a means of remembrance of Him. The worship of the church should be a continual reminder of how glorious God is, how unworthy and sinful we are, how…

  • SCC Core Commitments: Expository Preaching & Teaching

    Written by
    This is the first post in a series devoted to explaining some of the foundational commitments of our church. At SCC, we are committed to what is called “expository preaching.” This is a kind of preaching that seeks to simply explain the meaning and relevance of the Bible. G. Campbell Morgan once said that the sermon ought to be simply “the text repeated more fully.” In expository preaching, the preacher begins with a passage of Scripture, prayerfully studies that passage of Scripture in its historical, grammatical and theological contexts in order to discern what it means, and only after that seeks to communicate the meaning of that passage (first) and the implications of that passage (second) accurately and effectively to the congregation. What this means is that the focus of the sermon is dictated by the focus of the particular passage(s) the preacher is preaching from. He is not to use the text to communicate his own ideas. Rather, he is to communicate the meaning and relevance of the text itself, as it is the inspired and inerrant Word of God. In other words, the preacher’s job is not to create nor cook the meal, but simply to serve it…

  • Sermon Series Read Along

    Written by
    Throughout our current sermons series on church membership, I have encouraged the people of our church to read one of four very good books on the subject to supplement their study. The challenge is to choose one of the suggested books below to read over the course of the next 4 weeks and then (if you are really daring) send a short note to the elders (send to:  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ), sharing one significant thing from your reading that challenged you. Note, I may share your note with the church at some point during the sermon series (with your permission, of course!), to encourage the body with what we are learning. Here are the books I have recommended. Joshua Harris, Why Church Matters: Discovering Your Place in the Family of God (Random House, 2011) *Formerly titled: Stop Dating the ChurchThabiti Anyabwile, What is a Healthy Church Member? (Crossway, 2008) Thom Rainer, I am a Church Member: Discovering the Attitude that Makes a Difference (B & H, 2013)Curtis Thomas, Life in the Body of Christ: Privileges and Responsibilities in the Local Church (Founders Press, 2006) Happy reading!

  • The Best Place for Our Souls

    Written by
    In my recent study of Mark 5:1-20, I came across this quote by the old Bishop of Liverpool, John Charles (J.C.) Ryle, that I thought was too good not to share. "That place and position is most healthful for us in which we are kept most humble -- most taught our own sinfulness -- drawn most to the Bible and prayer -- led most to live by faith and not by sight. It may not be quite what we like. But if Christ by His providence has placed us in it, let us not be in a hurry to leave it. Let us therein abide with God. The great thing is to have no will of our own, and to be where Jesus would have us be." (J.C. Ryle, "Expository Thoughts on the Gospels") Such wise words
