This week Jimmy Seibert continued our Imago Dei series with a message on the character of God. Our view of God and His character will shape our outlook on the rest of our lives. When we perceive God as distant we will distance ourselves from Him, and when we see Him as too small we overlook His power. But when we see God rightly, we have freedom to believe for the impossible.
This week Jimmy Seibert kicked off our new series, Imago Dei, which means, “in His image.” We were made in the image of God, and therefore, we’re all made to display His glory. When we know our value as sons and daughters, and know we are wholly loved by God, there is nothing that can diminish our value.
On Sunday, Jimmy shared vision for the year ahead. We are called to be people who dig up ancient wells (Genesis 26:22). Specifically, we are called to believe God for restoration and healing of families, revival in our church and freedom from a political spirit. When we re-dig an ancient well and allow the life of God to flow out of us, not only do we get blessed, but everyone around us is blessed.
It was an exciting Sunday as we had the opportunity to hear from Jimmy and Laura Seibert, who are back from their three-month sabbatical. They shared about their time away, and shared vision for where we are headed as a church family this year. We are called to be people who dig up ancient wells, and allow the Spirit of God to flow through us (Genesis 26:22). When the life of God is flowing through us, not only do we get blessed, but those around us are blessed as well.
This week Jimmy Seibert wrapped up our Return to Radical: Being the Church in the 21st Century series with a message on how we can be the Church that changes the world. When the Church is in action, God is glorified and people see God.
This week Jimmy Seibert continued our series, Return to Radical: Being the Church in the 21st Century, with a message on allowing God to define who He is. When we get to know God on His terms and not on our own, we get deeper revelation of who He is. Because God’s character never changes, we always have solid ground to stand on.
Today Jimmy Seibert continued our series, Return to Radical: Being the Church in the 21st Century, with a message on allowing God to define who He is. When we get to know God on His terms and not on our own, we get deeper revelation of who He is. Because God’s character never changes, we always have solid ground to stand on.
Take a look at some of our takeaways from today’s message:
- When we are trying to figure something out, the question should always be, “What does God say about it?”
- You have to decide who you’re going to trust, you or God.
- When you see the glory of God, you can’t help but declare the glory of God.
- You have the highest value to God.
- Because of who God is, there is solid ground beneath you, and there is always a place to stand.
- When you have a man-centered worldview, you will never know where solid ground is.
- The word of God rightly describes who He is.
- Jesus is the doorway to everything we’re made for.
- The desire and delight of God is to rescue people from their sin, not condemn people for their sin.
- There is never hopelessness when the people of God are in action.

This week Jimmy continued our series, Return to Radical, with a message on the importance of prayer. As the Church, we are called to pray and lay a foundation of prayer for a promise to be fulfilled.
This week Jimmy Seibert continued our Return to Radical: Being the Church in the 21st Century series with a message on finding healthy community in the Church. God intended for us to thrive in community, and every element of the Church serves a purpose.
The five components of a healthy church are:
- Personal relationship with Jesus
- Discipleship // two to three gathering
- Lifegroup // meeting house to house
- Church gatherings
- Impact the world
This week Jimmy Seibert continued our series, Return to Radical, by unpacking the question, “Who do you say Jesus is.?” The way we perceive Jesus will determine the course of our lives. When we are confident in who Jesus is, we are set to make it for the long haul. We also took a look at three ways Jesus reveals Himself in Scripture:
1. Jesus is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords
2. Jesus is our Salvation
3. Jesus is the closest friend we could ever have
