  • SCC Core Commitments: A Plurality of Pastors

    Written by
    This is our next installment in a series of blog posts about SCC's core commitments. Here at SCC, we believe in a plurality of pastors, who lead the church as Christ’s under-shepherds. In other words, we have a team of multiple pastors. Let’s look to the Bible to see what a pastor is, and then discuss why we hold to a plurality view. What is a Pastor? Let’s look at and read Titus 1:5. Paul left Titus in Crete, and gave Titus some pretty specific instructions for his time in Crete; specifically, to “put what remained into order, and appoint elders in every town.” So Titus was tasked to put the things that remained into order. We see that among those things, and probably the…

  • A Prayer for the Lord's Supper

    Written by
    A few weeks ago, we prayed this prayer together as a church family as we prepared to remember the death of Jesus our Savior by eating bread and drinking juice in the ordinance of the Lord’s Supper. It is a prayer from a book of Puritan prayers called The Valley of Vision. That little book has enriched my prayer life more than any other book (next to the Bible, of course). If you don’t have it, I would fully recommend getting it. Below is the prayer, which I modified a bit for gathered church setting. I would encourage you to pray through this prayer next time you prepare to remember the death of your Savior in the Lord’s Supper. God of All Good, We praise…

  • 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…

  • 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…

  • 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…

  • 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 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…

  • 'No Creed But the Bible', is Not Biblical

    Written by
    One of the foundational theological convictions of our church is the sufficiency of Scripture. We believe and preach the principle of Sola Scriptura, which says that Scripture is the only infallible authority of Christian faith and practice. God has given us many authorities – the Bible, the church, Bible teachers, pastors, church leaders, etc – but Scripture is the only infallible authority. It is the only authority that God has given us that will not fail or error at some point. This is one of the biblical principles that sparked the Protestant Reformation, and we gladly embrace it at SCC. A lot of well meaning Christians who believe in the sufficiency of Scripture, however, seem to misunderstand the vital principle of Sola Scriptura, and apply…

  • Self-Examination and the Lord’s Supper

    Written by
    We celebrated the Lord’s Supper as a church again this past Sunday. The Lord’s Supper is a time for us to remember the death of our Lord on our behalf in a unique way as a church family. It’s a time for us to recalibrate ourselves as a family of redeemed Christ-followers around the reality that through his substitutionary and sacrificial death, Jesus has secured forgiveness of sins and right standing with God for us. As we prepared to eat and drink again this past Sunday, I reflected upon the words of the Apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians 11, where he warned a young, messy, and immature church against eating and drinking the Lord’s Supper in an “unworthy manner.” Here’s what he wrote… 1 Corinthians…

  • Mission of the Church

    Written by
    A few weeks ago, after months of preparation and discussion among our team of elders, I proposed a new mission statement for our church. Not a new mission, mind you, but a new mission statement. That new mission statement is this: To glorify God together as we enjoy and spread the riches of His grace in Jesus Christ. “The riches of His grace” is a phrase that comes from the book of Ephesians, where the Apostle Paul says that our redemption, that is, our rescue from slavery to sin, has come through the blood of Jesus; the substitutionary death of Jesus on behalf of sinners, according to the riches of His grace which He lavished on us in Jesus (Eph 1:7-8). Not long after that…
