Ongoing studies show us that less and less people are following Jesus in America. One of the ways we can track this is through church attendance. There was a time in America when people went to church every week. Now the average church attender is someone who attends two out of every five Sundays. Listen in as Neal talks about living an outreach focused life.
We are multigenerational because the church is meant to be multigenerational. We think the best way to keep the love of God fresh in our hearts is to place a high value on kids, students and families. We intentionally invest in the next generation. Listen in as Neal continues our series on the core values of Coastline.
Coastline is committed to building people up. Our third core value says: "We are a fun, welcoming, loving and encouraging church community. We want to help everyone take the next spiritual step to grow in their faith journey. We invest ourselves in the lives of others because we think that developing servant leaders matters." Listen in as Neal teaches from 2 Timothy 2:2 on this value.
Listen in to the second sermon in our "This is Us" series, which focuses on our core value of praying bold prayers. Our guest speaker, Scott Grabendike teaches us that the fruit of our prayer life reveals the root of our discipleship.
The mission of our church is helping people find and follow Jesus. Our core values are what keep us focused on our mission. They are the identity of Coastline and the driving beliefs of our focus. This week we start a new series called “This is Us," which will talk about what drives Coastline. Listen in as Neal talks about how we put God first.
There are power in the words we say and in the words we hear. The phrase, “He is risen!” has impacted more lives than we can count. On Easter Sunday, many of you are here wondering if Jesus really rose from the dead. Did Jesus really calm the waves, heal the broken and accept the rejected? You’re longing to know if the resurrection story is true. Listen in as Neal teaches from Matthew 28:1-15 and talks about how we find life in the resurrection of Jesus.
The best response we can have for Jesus is worshiping Him with our actions and our life. There are going to be many people in our world that are given the name king. Rock stars, pop stars, politicians and athletes will be called king. Listen in as Neal reminds us there is only one who is the King of Kings. He is ruler of all things. Jesus is the one you want to be found worshiping and the one you want to obey and please.
Dream about a church that unleashes the love of God in such a compelling way that people want to be a part of it. Dream about a church who reaches pimps, plumbers, teachers, barbers, electricians, politicians, parents, kids, students and people of every walk of life. Dream about a church that is so united they meet regularly for prayer, fasting and give away their possession. That is the church in Acts. In this sermon Neal preaches from Acts 28:11-31 and talks about how the gospel is for everyone.
Many of us have the tendency to speak metaphorically about storms when describing life situations. We talk about making it through the storm or how we’re in the middle of a tough storm. Storms have a way of revealing our character. Storms can make us or break us. Storms test us and require us to dig deep into what is happening in our life. Listen in as Neal teaches on Acts 27 and the first part of Acts 28. Paul and his companions find themselves in a storm but trust God to lead them through it.
One of the reasons the early church experienced such explosive growth is because believers thought it was better to please God than to please others. In Acts 26 Paul shares his story with a King! Yep, a humble Jewish man gets to tell a king about the love of God and the promised Messiah. Paul’s faith in Christ inspires each of us to live a life like his. Paul’s passion to share about Christ motivates us to tell others about Jesus. Listen in as Neal talks about how we all need to be ready to share our faith.
