Chapter 2

Chapter 2

Do you remember when you first started reading “chapter books”? It was that transition in growth when you moved from picture books to a simple story line to a narrative that was a bit more complex that it needed chapters to separate the tale into incremental bits so that the reader can take in all that the story provided. Chapters helped us the reader step into the journey the author intended to lead us into.
This is how we view the life that Christ has called us into. So if salvation is “chapter 1” of our new journey in Christ, then “chapter 2” is our next step in spiritual formation. In our next series, we are wanting to help encourage Kfirst to look to step forward into a new chapter of their own growth (discipleship) in Jesus. If we want to be a people to want to “be with Jesus so that we can become like Jesus,” then we need to look for a next step (or chapter) to begin. Join us as we discover what your “chapter 2” needs to be in your spiritual walk.

Prophet/Priest/King

Prophet/Priest/King

There are three main “offices” spoken of in the Old Testament-prophet, priest, and king. Jesus fulfills all three of these roles.
Normally, the three offices of prophet, priest, and king were distinct from each other, with no overlap. That is, a king was not a priest or a prophet. A priest did not function as a prophet or a king. And a prophet simply did a prophet’s job without trying to be a either king or a priest. But Jesus Christ perfectly fills all three roles simultaneously: He is the Prophet, Priest, and King, to the great blessing of the world. This series looks at these roles that Jesus has fulfilled and still fulfills – He is our Prophet to give us direction, He is our High Priest to free us from shame, and He is our King to give us unity and strength.

Missio Dei

Missio Dei

We serve a God who is on mission. Since creation, God has been in the mode of redemption and restoration. This is His plan; this is His heart. It’s what we call the Missio Dei (Latin for “mission of God”). This mission is not just what He is up to but what God invites us to be a part of. In fact, Jesus spoke of this in what we call the Great Commission (Matthew 28:16-20).
Jesus calls us by beginning with the word “o.” Yet, it doesn’t mean quite what we think it means. Rather than being an in-your-face command, it is much more invitational in nature. It has more of an “As you go” sort of feel. In other words, wherever we are, we’re in just the right place to live out the Missio Dei and share the love of Jesus with whoever we meet. By recognizing the “As you go” nature of the commission, what we discover is that mission is not just a trip we take to a foreign country or land but it is the everyday posture of God’s people to everyone, everywhere, always.
Join us in February as we look at our lives and embrace God’s Missio Dei and live lives that “go.”

Beyond 52

Beyond 52

I love our church. In fact, I think that you love our church too – otherwise, you wouldn’t be
here.Yet, there is a problem that arises when we relegate “church” to the hour we give him in 52
Sundays a year. I, personally, believe we need to allow the life of Christ to move in our lives
beyond 52 Sundays to see God work in every facet and in every day of our lives. I believe when
the Church is working right and lives beyond the 52 Sundays, there is nothing like it. The
Church is not an organization. It’s an organism designed to live, move, and have being. This
month, we celebrate everything that God has done on Sundays but we look forward to how He
desires to move in our lives 24/7. Join us in our new series “Beyond 52” as we cast our vision
for the year. Why? Here at Kfirst truly believe that the best is yet to come!

Words to a scattered Church

Words to a scattered Church

James is a fascinating book of the Bible written by a fascinating individual. Not to be mistaken with the two james who were of the “Twelve”. This James was the half-brother of Jesus and also the leader of the mother church in Jerusalem. Because of famine, poverty, and persecution, the people of the Jerusalem church began to scatter around the known world. So James begins to pen out some wisdom into this beautiful, short, and very powerful book. What is perhaps the most practical book of the Bible, it’s also one of the most impactful. Join us on Sundays as we dive into the amazing book of James.
