The Centrality of the Gospel

by Pastor of Worship Garrett Lee

During this Sunday’s service (1/11), we’ll be considering the eternal plan of the triune God to obtain a people for himself, for the praise of his glory. As you prepare for our time together, consider reading through Ephesians, at least the first three chapters. You can also see what songs and Scriptures we’ll be considering together here.

We’ll be introducing a new song, How Rich a Treasure We Possess, which expounds on this eternal plan of God to glorify himself in the church by Christ Jesus forever. I’ve attached the sheet music for you to view here. You can also listen to it on Spotify.

How Rich a Treasure We Possess

How rich a treasure we possess, in Jesus Christ our Lord
His blood our ransom and defense His glory our reward
The sum of all created things are worthless in compare
For our inheritance is Him whose praise angels declare

How free and costly was the love, displayed upon the cross
While we were dead in untold sin the Sovereign purchased us
The will of God the Father demonstrated through the Son
The Spirit seals the greatest work the work which Christ has done

How vast and measureless the flood of mercy unrestrained
The penalty was paid in full the spotless Lamb was slain
Salvation, what a priceless gift received by grace through faith
We stand in robes of righteousness we stand in Jesus’ name

(Bridge)
For Yours’ is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory
Yours’ is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory
Yours’ is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory
Yours’ is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory;
Amen, amen, amen

The Church…the Dearest Place on Earth

Christ died for the church, and now he lives for the church.
And so should we.

Why does the church play such a big part in God’s redemption plan? How does God intend to use the church to help me grow in the faith? Why should I bother to join a church?

These and more are questions we’re exploring in The Church…the Dearest Place on Earth, the Winter 2015 sermon series at Grace Church of Alexandria.

From January to March we’re discussing how to get the most out of your Grace Church experience, and how God may use you to contribute to the lives of others. We’re covering:

  • The Big Picture: Why out of love God would spill blood for his church
  • The Centrality of the Gospel: the cross is at the heart of everything at Grace Church
  • How to Talk to God About Your Church: what to pray for your local church
  • Scripture Intake: why the Word of God is your lifeblood; you can’t live without it.
  • The Gospel + Relationships = Growth: how to form discipleship relationships
  • Take Me To Your Leader: how to follow the leaders God gives your church.
  • Evangelism is a Team Effort: when it comes to witnessing, you don’t have to go-it-alone
  • Membership: Don’t Leave Home Without It: Why join a local church?
  • Changed Into His Image: how God uses tough love and relationships to grow us.

Join us Sundays at 9:30 am for Church History Adult Bible Class and 10:30 am worship service for The Church, the Dearest Place on Earth.
