Second lesson in our series, we concentrate on the Holy, wonderful and marvelous character of the Father. We look at passages that declare boldly, "God is Love".Pastor Ryan shares from John 17 and Galatians 4 on the overwhelming attribute of our Father is BE our Father, full of love for His children, and indeed, exemplifying for all what a Father d…
 
So we begin! Pastor Ryan begins our journey through the semester of learning and practicing one of BCC's pillars of ministry: "steadfast worship". We learn from Ephesians 1:3-14 of a Triune God worthy of praise, because of what He has done for us, and, more importantly, simply for Who He is!Our God, eternally Almighty, inexpressibly merciful!…
 
In preparation for our new fall series, Pastor Ryan discusses the blessings, responsibilities and spiritual expectations for the who choose to declare kinship to a small famlly group of Christ-followers. We are exhorted to enter into friendships where "iron sharpening iron" promotes healthy expressions of love and forgiveness, exemplifying the savi…
 
We complete our journey through the Book of Philippians with this final sermon, expounding on Paul's thankfulness of giving, and the "Koinonia" that it creates for and from the body of Christ. To fellowship, partner, share commune, all wrapped up in the Godly practice of giving, modeling what God does for us...constantly. Pastor Ryan so expounds on…
 
Pastor Ryan returns to our pulpit, sharing on Phil. 4:10-20. Today we hear of how the Apostle Paul was able to experience contentment in all circumstances, good or bad. Our exhortation from the Holy Spirit is to do the same, as we learn to trust completely and intimately on Jesus' power to do so - we learn that "our Lord is our Shepherd, He is ever…
 
Pastor Bruce Cochran (Ryan's father) visits the BCC pulpit and expounds deeply on the famous passage of Philippians 4: 8, 9.Our maturity is reflected in what our mind dwells on, what our mind meditates on. Paul states, and pastor Cochran shares on, to do "what we have learned" from God to acquire His peace.…
 
Like it or not, all of us learn to progress in life through imitation, learning to do as we see and hear others doing. Paul, in Phil. 3, verses 17-21, exhorts us to imitate Christ! Not the earthly things, as Pastor Ryan explains. The enemies of the cross of Christ may not necessarily be overtly evil and demonic, simply false followers of Jesus - th…
 
pastor Ryan continues our study in Philippians 3, verses 10-16. Pastor Ryan expounds on Paul's cherished declaration of "pressing on", reaching for the one prize above all, Jesus Christ. Our love for Jesus is not a formula, but a relationship, learning to forget all in the past and strive for that one calling, one goal of being conformed to the lik…
 
We are blessed to have guest speaker Dr. Chad Raith delivering our message today. He speaks on Phil. 3, verses 2 - 11. Here the Apostle Paul enjoins us towards that one asset that focuses our lives: Jesus, only Jesus! Dr. Raith explains that each of uses charged to determine that ONE thing, that One asset, that we absolutely must have to ensure an …
 
Pastor Ryan elaborates on Philippians 32:19-30, where Paul emphasizes, of all things, travel plans! Travel plans that encourages the importance of friends and colleagues, that in turn emulate Christ-like relationships rich in Christly investments, that in turn demonstrate Godly maturity in the Spirit.…
 
In Phil. 2:12-18 (our text for today), we find Paul exhorting the church (and The Church) to 'work out our salvation with fear and trembling", Pastor Ryan leads us through a discussion on this very subject, focusing on how our maturity in Christ is demonstrated through NOT grumbling!Ryan Cochran による
 
Pastor Ryan leads us through one of the most beautiful passages of Scripture, the "Christ Song" found in Phil. 2:1-11. Here we find Jesus, God in the flesh, demonstrating His Godliness through the complete humility of the cross. This ultimate demonstration and model of humility is for us to follow, tone mature, to be more like Jesus!…
 
We look intensely at chapter 1, vss. 12-18. Paul makes it clear of his state of suffering, a suffering we so many times must endure for the sake of Christ! We see in this passage how 1) Paul models maturity in his sufferings for Christ and 2) how suffering does produce maturity that glorifies God and furthers the Gospel.A difficult reality for us t…
 
Pastor Symps continues our learning of Christly maturity by concentrating on the lesson of Philippians 1:9-11, that being our call to discerning love. Paul exhorts our love to be anchored n Christ's character, full of discernment, knowledge, integrity and of course its result: authentic, mature love.…
 
Pastor Ryan introduces us to our new series on Philippians. He shares with us Paul's call to the Philippian church the call to a walk with Christ that models maturity, a walk priviledged to resemble Christ even in servanthood and suffering, yet abounding in joy. In their letter, Paul is able to share his obvious affection and love with his fellow c…
 
Israel fails miserably in using the Ark of the Covenant as a means to manipulate the God of Israel. In chapters 7 and 8 of I Samuel, we see Samuel, as Israel's last judge, call and teach the people to take their regret and turn it into true repentance, into true worship, into grateful remembrance, and into total faithfulness of our One True God. A …
 
Pastor Ryan leads us through a panoramic view of Samuel's birth, his relationship with God, and his focus of ministry to Israel. A clear contrast of comparison can be drawn as we view Samuel and Samson (the last named judge in "Judges"); how did they treat their mother? God? The calling given to each? I Samuel, chap. 1-3 is our scripture for today.…
 
Pastor Symps helps us to grasp the deep significance of our justification and our sanctification, both identified through Christ's wonderful work on the cross! Like Him, we are to be reckoned with the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus' Gospel identity.Hallelujah! We, sinners now declared righteous because of Christ, can now be slaves to right…
 
He is Risen! He is Risen Indeed! The disciples did not, at first, understand this nor its full implications. In fear they cowered after Jesus' crucifixion. But Jesus appeared! And not only gave them peace, and the Holy Spirit, but also a charge, a mission to continue His work on earth. We look at John 20:19-23, John's version of the Great Commissio…
 
We arrive at our last tale found in the book of Judges, Chap. 19-21. Pastor Ryan leads us through five scenes of narrative, leading from the wandering Levite priest, the horrific events of the concubine, to civil war, and a solution to near-genocide that once again breaks God's law. Throughout is the tragic comparison of radical hospitality vs. unp…
 
We are in Chap. 17 and 18 of the book of Judges. We focus on the story of Micah, a man devoid of personal and meaningful relationships, one who does his own will to acquire meaning, purpose and belonging in his life, only to have it so easily taken away. So like our culture in America now, where we see so often only a glimpse of God in an expressio…
 
Pastor Symps completes our trilogy on the life of Samson in Judges Chap. 16. Pastor Symps leads us into a detailed study of Samson's last actions, his downfalls, and his wrong choices in his walk with God. What do we learn from this story today?How can we protect ourselves and the body from repeating such destructive life decisions?…
 
We are looking at Samson's life and character, found in Judges Ch. 14 and 15. We see a "hero", larger than life, who is for...himself. Samson is for Samson. He is the encapsulation of Israel, a nation to whom God gave so much, but delivered to Him no praise, but indifference. Yet God's lovingkindness remained, for God was faithful and generous with…
 
Today we look at Judges Chapter 13, and we are introduced to Samson's parents, Manoah and "his wife. What kind of people were they? How much did they listen to the Lord, how much did they understand? We learn that God here takes the initiative: He does not wait for a "good" person, He does not work in places of great attention, and He does not use …
 
Today, in Judges Ch. 10 - 12, we explore the judgeship of Jephthah, famous for his indiscreet and infamous vow to the Lord to sacrifice "whatever comes out of my house to greet me". This is a vow that epitomizes Israel's state: to not trust the Lord, to take matters into their own hands, to view God as approachable when He is "useful". This syncret…
 
"If we are not ruled by God, we will be ruled by tyrants" - William PennSage wisdom taken in light of today's study of Judges Chapter 9. Pastor Symps outlines the entire chapter, highlighting Israel's folly in following a tyrannical leader rather than the merciful and loving God the saved them out of Egypt. We see how one ruler brought destruction …
 
Today we finish the story of Gideon, found in Chap. 8 of Judges. What started as a spiritually victorious life pattern in ch. 7 (listening to and obeying God, in spite of personal fears and doubts), now becomes a life full of apparent worldly success and obvious spiritual disaster. We see a pattern in Gideon emerging: the "way of Cain", full of ven…
 
Today we look at the famous story of the judge Gideon in Judges 6 and 7. Pastor Ryan focuses on the spiritual aspect that Gideon had a little, included faith, yet God told him to use what he had, and God would do the rest! With God, even a little is sufficient, as our God will make sure that it is sufficient, and His Will be done!…
 
In Judges chapter 4 we look at Deborah, a wise woman made wise with the power of the Holy Spirit, a strong, confident judge you sees God's plan for her and for Israel. We also look at her compatriot Barak, strong, not as confident, but exercises faith to follow God (and join Deborah) though he does not know the outcome of their battle with the evil…
 
We study the detailed and dramatic narrative of the judge Ehud (Judges 3:12-30). Here, God empowers the "fat" Moab king Eglon to lord over Istael, and to teach His children to return to Him, using Ehud to righteously judge Israel's enemy and defeat them. Pastor Ryan also uses this story as an analogy for our lives in Christ, where Eglon represents …
 
We look at Judges 2:5 - 3:11.Pastor Symps speaks directly to the heart of Israel's sin (and by representation, ours!), repeatedly abandoning the God of their salvation to worship other idols (as we do today!). The next generation after Joshua hardly knew the Lord God of mercy!We also look at the first of the recorded judges, Othniel, and discern wh…
 
Pastor Ryan begins us on a new journey through the book of Judges, where "everyone did that which was right in their own eyes". Today, we look at 3 portions of the book from chapters 1 and 8, and the ending. Israel starts on the right track, yet the book follows course that is disastrous - a question we could ask ourselves today: "HOW did we get he…
 
BCC enters into a service of dedicated prayer for the many ministry facets conducted in and by our body. Interlaced, found here, are four short devotionals, highlighting each of the pillars of our church's mission: steadfast worship, healing community, uncommon unity, and faithful witness (see also our sermon series on "Following Jesus Together", 9…
 
Today, a special day to start the New Year, we are engaged in a service of lament, to give to the Lord our pain of loss in 2021, experienced both individually and as a body. Pastor Symps leads us through a devotional of Psalm 13, using this passage as an instruction on how David poured his heart out to God, and how we too can appeal to our Father w…
 
So goes the famous Christmas Carol, "long lay the world, in sin and error pining.' Pastor Ryan uses this deep Christmas devotional to explain the depth if the word "pining" and the Goodie;l of John's answer: "And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and tr…
 
Today Pastor Ryan hones in on the divine attribute of Jesus, Who is the Light of the World, emphasizing John 1: 1-9. We learn that darkness reveals, bit the Light (of Jesus) reveals. The Gospel is here Good News, and Christmas celebrates the tremendous reality that God entered into our darkness to reveal what sin, the flesh, the world, and the devi…
 
Our BCC children and youth ministries lead the congregation in a celebration of Christmas, through song, play and messages. In Jesus is Truth and Light! Pastor Symps finishes the celebration with a devotional message, expounding on the reality that the message of the Nativity must include Christ's work on the Cross.…
 
Pastor Ryan bears down more deeply on John 1:3,4, making clear the meaning of the term "abundant life" - "Zoe" type life. We look together into John 3 and John 10 to learn what we must do with our Jesus, the "Logos" of the universe, to receive this abundant,"Zoe" life: believe on Him, and follow Him!…
 
Pastor Ryan introduces us to this year's Advent season with a deep meditation on John 1:1-18. We discover the most amazing and incredulous event in history: the "Logos", that which holds the world together , created all things, created us, became flesh, and dwelt among us!He gives us hope: hope that He is bringing order to the disorder and brokenne…
 
Pastors Symps and Ryan present to us the last installment in our series on "Faithful Witness" Pastor Symps begins with a short devotional on I Peter 2:9, then Pastor Ryan leads us in a deep exhortation on John 17:20-23. Here our Jesus prays for US, praying that we would be one in unity, so united in one as He is with the Father! And then, with such…
 
Pastor Ryan leads us through a deep and sober discussion of II Corinthians 3:17-4:12.Here we venture into a reality found in all of Scripture: God demonstrates His witness of His glory through our weakness. When we are weak, we are then strong in Christ Jesus. When we (think we) are strong, we are actually weaker in our witness of His glory - it is…
 
The Great Commission teaches us of God's comprehensive commission to mission work, and Pastor Ryan today speaks of God's specific commission for each of us, using whom He has molded each person into, using our joys, our victories, our hurts, our anguish, our reconciliation through Christ in receiving His charge for a specific child of God to reach …
 
Pastor Symps teaches on the early work of missions that the Church began, prompted, initiated and led by the Holy Spirit. We learn of the integral part that all believers have in the sharing of the Gospel to all the world - the role of the missionary and the supporter are, as Paul describes, a "partnership in the Gospel".Acts 13 and Phil, 1, 2 are …
 
Pastor Ryan reminds BCC of one of our pillar mission beliefs: "God calls us to be the salt of the earth and light of the world in the city of Fort Wayne, and to every other place the Holy Spirit sends us".We start with the Beatitudes (Math., Ch. 5), those express promises of mercy and peace that cannot be earned or achieved - they must be received …
 
Pastor Symps expounds on the life and ministry of Phillip, called to serve tables in Acts Ch. 6, to be called by the Holy Spirit to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus - his life is an example of obedience to the Great Commission, as he moved precisely as our Lord dictated: go to Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and the world: in Phillip's case, the Gospel preac…
