Today, a special day to Strat 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.

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.

Pastor Ryan bears down more deeply on John 1:3,4, making clear the meaning of the term "abundant life" - "Zoe" type life.

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.

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…
 
Pastor Symps leads us in a study of all five expressions of the Great Commission, in the four Gospels and Book of Acts - how can your personal testimony fulfill the Christly command foreach of us to spread the Gospel?

We look again at Colossians 2:6-10.

He is Who we follow, the One who teaches us what is true and right, and by following Him we are protected from the vain wisdoms and thoughts and dis…
 
Pastor Ryan enjoins us I a short series to instruct and exhort us to unwavering faithfulness in Christ. How do we stand for our Lord, our truth, when so much in this world can distract, dissuade or despair us? The answer is in deep roots in our Christ Jesus. Hebrews 11:32-40 and Colossians 2:6-12 are the Scripture passages for today.…
 
Pastor Symps returns to the pulpit to finish our short study in the little letter of Philemon.We concentrate on vs. 8-25, where, as Symps explains, Paul presents to Philemon the encouragement to forgive the debt of Onesimus, and Paul himself, offering the propitiation, making this solution an archetype of Christ's work on the cross for us - we, sla…
 
Pastor Symps leads us through an impassioned exhortation on verses 1-7 of this precious little letter from Paul that demonstrates the atoning work of Jesus, through the instruction of an act of determined forgiveness.Included in the beginning of the sermon is a broadcast of an overview of Philemon as authored by "The Bible Project" - this can be fo…
 
Pastor Ryan revisits this "little book", this letter from Paul to Titus, exhorting Titus to keep his church following the true Truth, and to lead lives that exemplify their knowledge of this Christly truth.

Pastor Symps kicks off our new sermon series with a detailed look at 2nd John. This short love letter to the "elect lady" (perhaps a representation of the Church) emphasizes our walk in truth and love, to walk according to Christ's commandments. Pastor Symps asks, "do you love the Truth that abides forever"?…
 
We delve deeply into Chapters 21 and 22 of Revelation, to learn what is NOT the ending, but only just the beginning of our eternal hope and glory for the future, where the Lamb of God is always and ever to be praised, and where we, His Bride, have the profound privilege, joy and duty to reign with Him throughout the new Heaven and Earth, in the new…
 
The end of Revelation is GOOD NEWS! But in order to arrive at His outcome, God must do a thorough work of purification throughout His creation. The descriptions of the last battle (ch. 19, 20) reveals Christ as the Righteous Judge, and Pastor Ryan reminds us of two outcomes resulting from our Savior's judgement:1. The Dragon, the Beast, and the Fal…
 
Comparing chapters 17 and 21 of Revelation, we see a considerable amount of visionary thought dedicated to two cites: Babylon and the New Jerusalem. The great Babylon, that great harlot, depends on the dragon to mimic God's city, but can only come up with temporal satisfaction, destined for destruction, for it and its citizens. The New Jerusalem is…
 
Chapter 12 of Revelation, the prequel-ed war in Heaven before time began, already demonstrates the loss and failure to come of our enemy, the dragon! Pastor Ryan shares with us how we, even today, can share in the present and inevitable Victory of the Lamb, through repentance, prayer, testimony and readiness. We should always be ready for His retur…
 
We look at Chapters 8, 9 and 11 of Revelation, introducing the judgements of the seven trumpets. The Word marks, with absolute assurance, that God will and IS judging evil, that His goal to make the word right will come about, and that, through this judgement, there is opportunity for repentance. A question is posed: the 7th trumpet heralds the wor…
 
We compliment the flow of our series in Revelation to do just what the saints do as described in Revelation 8 - to offer to the throne of our God prayers and praise, offered up to the altar of our Lord, presented with incense, as demonstrated in His Word. We invite you to sample a devotional from Pastor Symps, and offerings of prayers and song from…
 
Pastor Symps looks at several passages from Revelation that identifies four eternally-true attributes of our Jesus as Shepherd of us during times of tribulation. Actions as described in Revelation 6, 7, 12 and 14 poetry our Christ as the True Shepherd, the True Avenger, the True Protector and the True Voice to His flock.…
 
How do we indeed hold fast faithfully to the Lamb when the world feverishly follows the dragon. Pastor Ryan paints a huge panoramic picture from Chapters 6, 12 and 13 that spans the history of Christ's (and ours) spiritual and epic war with the enemy. Through t all, the message is the same - Satan wants us to lose our grip on the everlasting Way of…
 
Pastor Ryan gives us a panoramic view of the Heavenly scenes found in Revelation, Ch. 7. In this passage, we are challenged by our Lord with a sobering decision to make:will you follow the "way of the Lamb" or the "terror of the dragon"? Once the decision id made to follow our Lamb of God, how do we faithfully follow the Lamb in a world feverishly …
 
We are in Chapter 5 of Revelation, where God now addresses the title deed to Heaven and Earth. who indeed is worthy to open the scroll and its seven seals? Pastor Ryan shows us how Chapter five reveals the wonderful, marvelous, and awesome Lamb of God, whose precious blood sacrificed for us and His conquering of death makes Him more than worthy to …
 
The Apostle John is treated to an open door to Heaven - "come up here!" says the Lord, and John (and us!) is treated to a vision where there is unending, uninterrupted, eternal praise and worship to the Lord God Almighty. As Pastor Ryan explains, it is a worship that we can join into at any time-it is indeed, unending!Thsi adoration of our God is h…
 
Pastor Ryan leads us through I Corinthians, Chapter 15, that great lecture on WHY we do have Resurrection! Because of this sublime, cardinal Truth, we can proclaim:"We declare that God raised Jesus from the dead. So, we say...."....and from this we can declare our belief in God, that God acts and moves in this world, that God defeated our great ene…
 
Pastor Symps explores the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem, this from all four Gospels, and adds to it John 13. We see the Christ received as King, yet they did not know what Kingdom He preached; and yet this glorious king demonstrated servanthood by washing the disciples' feet!Van we worship the true King and yet model His humility?…
 
We take an Easter Season break from Revelation for the opportunity to corporately worship, appeal, give thanks, and praise the Lord our God, using Psalm 118 as our model to follow. Together, our body offers adoration and praise, learns to lament, male our requests, and remember God's faithfulness in His provision and protection - give our Lord and …
 
This, the last of the seven letters dictated by the Lord Jesus Himself, and He addresses, as Pastor Luke points out, the sin of self-sufficiency. Two sins in one: Gos is not as great as you are at providing for your needs, and you are better than God to meet them! Your idolatry is ...yourself! Not only are you poor at His ministry, but you even thi…
 
Deep promises from Jesus to a small but faithful church. Philadelphia modeled what every congregation should strive for: evangelistic opportunity, complete reliance on God, faithful to the Name of Jesus - not ONE harsh word to this congregation who kept the Word of God!Jesus' promises are stellar - and a profound inspiration for us. Pastor Ryan exh…
 
Pastor Symps leads us into the study of Revelation Chap. 3. Jesus now dictates His letter to His church in Sardis. Attention! Not one word of compliment to this congregation! He called this a "dead" church. A dead church does no ministry, experiences no persecution - it is no threat to the enemy, no glory for our Lord. what the Church is, and what …
 
We are at the letter to Thyatira, found in Rev. 2:18-29. Lord Jesus commends them for their love, but not for a love compromised. Not for a love unswerving and undistracted towards His Lordship, but He exhorts them for a love that is accommodating towards the world, towards idols, towards seductive sin. So it was with Thyatira; perhaps, Pastor Ryan…
 
Jesus' letter to the Church at Pergamum (Rev. 2:12117) gives a commendation for there faithfulness, this in the face of the confusion of many ideologies and religions. But this He has against them (and us) - you cannot serve Jesus and something else! You cannot have two masters! Like our past brethren, we must choose this day whom we serve: the Chr…
 
We read of Smyrna in Rev. 2:7-11. This is the Church persecuted, poverty-stricken, a lustrous city holding many enemies to our brethren, yet Jesus KNOWS them, and comforts and exhorts them to overcome. Our Jesus blesses them with His character (He who conquered death!) and His hope for their future, an eternal hope hat He has prepared for them, for…
 
Pastor Symps concentrates on the letter our Lord Jesus wrote to Ephesus (Rev. 2:1-7).The stern yet loving letter conveyed a loving call to remember their first love. It is an equally fitting and sober call to repentance for Broadway, and any church, today!Symps Ndlovu による
