HEARTBEAT – “A Different Way of Doing Church”

1 Corinthians 9:22

This video is a part of a series preached at The Alpine Chapel that deals with its core-values and distinctives… the very heartbeat of this church. Each message is taken from the acrostic: A.L.P.I.N.E. C.H.A.P.E.L. There are 12 messages in this series and this is the very first: A Different Way Of Doing Church: “We are in the radical pursuit of bringing glory to God. God has always been creative and original in His approach to loving and reaching people. Why shouldn’t we be? We don’t seek to do things a certain way just because that’s how they’ve always been done, but to be led by the Holy Spirit in all our ways.”

Questions to help you dig deeper into the message:

What ministered to you most in this message?

Mark 12:37b declares, “…And the large crowd was listening to Him with delight.”  What are some of the things that people in Jesus’ day loved about His speaking to them?

Read Ephesians 5:1. Pastor Michael spoke of the ‘creativity’ of our God. How can you and I “imitate” this particular characteristic of our Lord?

When asked the question, “Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 10 years?” What is to be the Believer’s response? How do Proverbs 19:21 and Jeremiah 10:23 relate to this?

What does 1 Corinthians 9:22 mean for us today, as we are trying to reach those that do not yet know Jesus?

BONUS [if you have time]: Talk about what the statement, “Methods must change, but the Message must never change” means.
