Architects & Builders
A (Virtual) New Start
  • 1 Corinthians 3:9-11 & 16
  • Ephesians 2:20-22
  • 1 Peter 2:4-5
“A church in process of re-creating and redefining itself.” 
Based on the foundation of God’s purpose in Jesus Christ, and built according to the apostolic “specs” in Scripture, it remains in a constant state of re-formation.
Community-Building Requires Bridge-Building
  • Ephesians 2:14-16
  • Philippians 1:5 & 7
God gives power to create community from even the most disparate elements.
So, Where Have You Been the Past 4000+ Years . . . And Where Are You Going?
The Curse of Babel (The Tower of Man) 
  • Genesis 11:1-9           
Sinful pride can aspire to great heights and even accomplish great things. But it also always is a destroyer of relationships and communities.
The Call of Abraham (The City of God) 
  • Genesis 12:1-3,
  • Hebrews 11:10, 14-16
When God called Abraham he went in faith, even though he didn’t know where he was going.
The Hinge of History (Jesus)
  • John 10:14-16
  • Matthew 28:16-20
Jesus opens the door for people from all nations to become people of God.
The Promise of Pentecost
  •  Acts 2:1-12
The curse of Babel is being slowly unwound.
  • Ephesians 2:12-13 & 19
  • 1 Peter 2:9-10
We go from being left out to being welcomed in.
The Hope of Heaven
  • Revelation 7:9-17
Get ready. People from every ethnic group, culture, population, and language will all be gathered in Christ as the people of God.
The City of God (Part II – The Fulfillment)
  • Revelation 21:2-4 & 14

Maybe Abraham knew where he was going after all.
