Berean Baptist in Idaho Falls (2)

The entrance to the wild and zany, "Ammon Antics"

Berean Baptist Church

[Jews at Berea] they received the word with all readiness, and searched the Scriptures daily (Acts 17:11)

Welcome to B.B.C.!  Through a careful study of God’s Word, we desire for this church to be place where people find Christ, learn Christ, love Christ, and live Christ.  May the Lord bless you today.

Sunday School – 9:30 am: Classes for (1) 4s & 5s; (2) 1st – 3rd, (3) 4th-6th; (4) junior high – high school; (5) adult class with Todd Wood – “Principles of Christian Growth”; (6) adult class with Mike Ghiglia – “Strategies in Evangelism”

First Sunday of the Month:  Grace & Glory

Main Service – 10:45 am:  announcements, prayer, singing (“Behold Your God”, “O the Deep, Deep Love of Jesus”, “The Gospel Song”, “Thank You, Jesus”, “Thank You, Lord”), scripture reading (Malachi 2), offering,  9 member orchestra playing “Like a River Glorious”, instrumental & vocal – “The Mystery of the Cross”

Message Text: I Corinthians 12:8-11, “Be Jesus, empowered by the Spirit, ministering through the diversity of the gifts”

I. The lists of gifts: (1) I Corinthians 12:8-11, (2) I Corinthians 12:28-31, (3) Romans 12:6-8, (4) Ephesians 4:11, (5) I Peter 4:11

  • These lists are not exhaustive.
  • These lists do not put the most important at the top and the least important at the bottom.
  • These lists eliminate self-glory.

II. Closer examination of the list of nine gifts in the Corinthian text

III.  Closing exhortations

  • Stir up your gift.
  • Don’t soap box on your particular agenda – let it be “As He wills”.
  • Exercise your gift to please God and not in order to seek the applause of others.
  • Be faithful.

Through the Spirit’s giving and empowering, you are displaying the visible Priesthood, Kingship, and Prophetic ministry of the Lord Jesus Christ on this earth and in Idaho Falls.  The community hears Jesus by what you say.  They see Jesus by what you do.  This week, may this city behold the grace and glory of Christ.

Conclusion:  The Lord’s Table and “The Communion Hymn”
