Opposite Church

God has given the gift of the local church to be a place of tension.

Glory & Cross
Luke 9:20, 22
“Christ” is Greek for the Hebrew word: “Messiah,” which means Anointed One. But what does Anointed One mean?

Comfort & Challenge
Luke 9:29, 30-31
Moses wrote the Torah (first five books of the Bible) and Elijah was the “last prophet” in Israel after everyone abandoned God. See Exodus 33:21-23 and 1 Kings 19:9-14

Luke 9:23-24
A disciple is a person who trusts in the promises of Jesus and seeks to follow Him.

Staying & Going
Luke 9:33-35
The tension of staying & going was present for Peter, James and John just as it is for us here now.

Receiving & Being Poured Out
Romans 8:1-2
Luke 9:26
