There's a Reason We Call It a Church Family

This week I want to take a moment to encourage each of you to really lean into your All Saints family. We all fill our days moving from one sphere to another. We have our coworkers, our immediate family, our extended family, and our friends. If we have school-aged children, we have our school community (or maybe several!) as well. Perhaps you are involved in a civic organi...

The Beautiful Privilege of Corporate Worship

Too often, the society in which we live affects our spiritual life without us realizing it. In America, we struggle to keep our individualism from altering our view of the local body of Christ and our relationship to it. While any patriotic American will explain why our national character of "pulling ourselves up by our own bootstraps" makes us who we are, we need to recog...

PCA Membership Vows, Part 6

The fifth membership vow asks, "Do you submit yourselves to the government and discipline of the Church, and promise to study its purity and peace?" There is no doubt thatsubmissionanddisciplinehave negative connotations in our current culture. Two images pop into my mind when I hear those words. One is of a bully holding your arm behind your back and demanding submission ...

PCA Membership Vows, Part 5

We arrive at the fourth vow having gone through a series of building blocks. Each vow reveals basic tenants of the Gospel. We covered the sinfulness of man in the first vow, and it is in our sinfulness that we are made aware of our own inability to save ourselves. We should despair if it weren't for sovereign mercy that takes us from sinfulness to salvation. The second vow...

PCA Membership Vows, Part 4

In the year 1776, the United States was changed forever. We would no longer be a group of colonies, for in the stroke of signatures at the gathering of the 2ndContinental Congress, a nation was born. What began as insurrection in 1775, was codified by declaration in 1776. Men were called to arms, and in doing so, soldiers had to take an oath swearing "to be true to the Uni...

PCA Membership Vows, Part 3

The first vow leaves us in a state of extreme vulnerability as sinners who justly deserve God's wrath and who are without hope save in his sovereign mercy. Jonathan Edwards knew this perilous position of sinners when he penned these words in his famous sermon,Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God, "There is nothing that keeps wicked men at any one moment, out of Hell, but t...

PCA Membership Vows, Part 2

The Church is made up of all kinds of people. There are those who have been Christians their entire lives and those who are brand new to the faith. There are those who feel as if they are barely hanging on and those with vibrant faith, who are in a season of deep growth. In any given congregation, all of these people live together in community. It is God's design for his C...
