1 So Christ has truly set us free. Now make sure that you stay free, and don’t get tied up again in slavery to the law. 2 Listen! I, Paul, tell you this: If you are counting on circumcision to make you right with God, then Christ will be of no benefit to you. 3 I’ll say it again. If you are trying to find favor with God by being circumcised, you must obey every regulation in the whole law of Moses. 4 For if you are trying to make yourselves right with God by keeping the law, you have been cut off from Christ! You have fallen away from God’s grace. 5 But we who live by the Spirit eagerly wait to receive by faith the righteousness God has promised to us. 6 For when we place our faith in Christ Jesus, there is no benefit in being circumcised or being uncircumcised. What is important is faith expressing itself in love. (Galatians 5:1-6)


Living by the law instead of the Gospel

1. It stops my faith from .

2. It steers me away from God.

3. It the entire Gospel.

4. It creates spiritual confusion

5. It creates a counterfeit .


10 Obviously, I’m not trying to win the approval of people, but of God. If pleasing people were my goal, I would not be Christ’s servant. (Galatians 1:10)


Jesus plus anything everything.


13 For you have been called to live in freedom, my brothers and sisters. But don’t use your freedom to satisfy your sinful nature. Instead, use your freedom to serve one another in love. 14 For the whole law can be summed up in this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” (Galatians 5:13-14)

Jesus replied, “You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ The entire law and all the demands of the prophets are based on these two commandments.” (Matthew 22:37-40)

​Easter is a time to focus on the joy of “coming home.” We’ll be celebrating that joy this Easter with five different gathering times between April 8th and 9th:
South: Saturday at 5 p.m.; Sunday at 9:15 & 10:45 a.m.
Downtown: Sunday at 9:15 & 10:45 a.m.

Easter isn’t possible without a team of volunteers helping to make our special gatherings unforgettable. Will you join us this year? There are Easter serving opportunities available at both campuses. We encourage you to serve one gathering and attend one gathering. You can sign up here online
