Sermon Scripture: Acts 15:1-35
Sermon Big Idea: Becoming a Christian and being a Christian shouldn’t be two different things. Surrendering to Jesus makes us a Christian and surrendering to Jesus is what being a Christian is all about.
- Becoming a Christian is about grace not law.
- Ephesians 2:4-7
- Exodus 4:24-26
- Galatians 2:15-16
- Matthew 11:28-30
- Being a Christian is surrendering to the authority of Holy Spirit filled Elders.
- Galatians 2:11-14
- Being a Christian is a continuation of our surrender.
