Today Jimmy Seibert shared a message on the significance of water baptism. By definition, baptism means to immerse completely. But it is much more than that – it is an outward declaration of an inner reality. Baptism does not determine our salvation, but it symbolizes the cleansing of our sin, and it is a key that unlocks the things of God.
We are celebrating baptisms at our annual Baptism Bash on May 20th! To learn more or to sign up to be baptized, click here.
This week we were joined by special guest, City Councilman Dillon Meek. He shared about the history of Waco and the exciting opportunity that is still ahead for our city. As the Church, we are called to engage in what is happening throughout the city and establish a Kingdom culture. Whether serving within the church or in our city, you have an opportunity to love our city, shape the culture and make an impact!

This week Jimmy Seibert wrapped up our series, Living Fully Alive, with a message centered around Romans 8:14-17. Because we were chosen by God to be His children, we are co-heirs with Christ. Since we are in the family, we inherit the benefits that come along with being a part of the family. We also have a responsibility to play our part in the family and represent Jesus wherever we go.
This morning Jimmy Seibert continued our series, Living Fully Alive, with a message centered around Romans 8:5-11. He called us to live a life submitted to the Holy Spirit rather than live according to our flesh. When we walk in the flesh, we grieve the Holy Spirit. Seeing our sin as personal and connected to a relationship help us be see the effects of our sin. It’s more than try to make our good outweigh our bad; it is wanting to live in a life-giving relationship with God!
This week Jimmy Seibert kicked off our new series, Living Fully Alive. We are invited into the family of God, and we are called to live fully free as His children. Throughout our three-week series, we will be taking a look at Romans 8 to find out more about our identity and purpose as God’s children.
This week Jimmy Seibert continued our Imago Dei series with a message on the process between knowing we are made in the image of God and living in a way that reflects His glory. When we press into God in the midst of trials, we ultimately become more like Him.
This week Jimmy Seibert continued our Imago Dei series with a message on overcoming the blame game. When Adam and Eve gave into sin they were filled with shame, pulled away from God and began blaming someone else for their sin. Until we know we are enough in God, we will never get over shame. And until we own our sin and stop blaming others, we will never be free.

CHECK OUT SOME OF OUR TAKEAWAYS FROM TODAY’S MESSAGE:
- If you know Jesus, you are free from the power of sin.
- God has already planned a way of escape for you.
- When we question what God has said, we allow sin to enter our lives.
- We can’t be controlled by the voices of others, we have to be led by the voice of God.
- When your appetites and desires aren’t submitted to God, they will get out of control and consume you.
- If you are trying to get to God by hoping your good will outweigh your bad, you’ll never get there.
- Shame is the belief that we are not good enough.
- If we become salt and light as we were intended to be then we will see change in the world.
- If I’m not running to God then I’m running with the devil.
- We lead with empathy, but if we don’t get to truth we don’t get to freedom.
- Whether you are the initiator or the receiver of sin, Jesus offers a place of healing.
- You have to forgive so you can be free.
- Bitterness does not get you to righteousness.
- If we keep blaming and complaining about everything, we’ll never be free from anything.
- No one else is responsible for your walk with God but you.
- The gospel is the only hope for this world.

This week Jimmy Seibert continued our series, Imago Dei, with a message on how sin has marred our perception of ourselves and our culture. Sin released brokenness, but with Jesus’ resurrection we were made victorious and are called to walk out in freedom. By renewing our minds with God’s Word, we are able to discern lies from God’s intent for us.
