"The Mission of CFBC: an Encouragement to Stay Faithful!"
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff reminds the CFBC congregation of the mission of CFBC. This sermon examines closely Paul's mission in Colossians 1:28-29 -- we proclaim Christ! This happens through the admonishing and teaching of every man so that every man will be complete in Christ!
Listen to this mission of God (in Col 1:28-29) and then the mission of CFBC so that the ministry can stay focused and faithful to the ultimate aim of glorifying God & exalting Christ!
"How Faithful Are You to the King in His Absence? He's Coming Back Soon! Are You Faithful?"
Pastor Geoff continues preaching through the Gospel of Luke and teaches on the parable that Jesus tells because people supposed that He was going to start the kingdom immediately.
But Jesus tells a parable to show that He, as the King, will depart for a while and then He will return and call all of His slaves to account for how faithful they have been.
This message is a call for all of God's slaves to serve Him faithfully. Let God deal with the results. Our duty is to remain faithful.
It's also a warning to those who are lazy, idle, unbelieving, and self-congratulating. The warning is sober because when the Master returns He will slay all His enemies and cast them to judgment forever.
Turn to Christ today! Serve Him with faithfulness!
