Synopsis: Ever ask someone or have someone ask you, "Why would a person want to get baptized?" or "When does a person get baptized?" or "What does water baptism picture? What does it illustrate?" God's Word gives us the answers! Tonight's message was delivered in preparation of seeing three individuals get baptized in our evening service tonight.
Synopsis: God is concerned with how we use our minds--the way we think, the kind of thoughts we think. We ought to as well. So the question before us then is this, "How does God want me to use my mind?" Our text today answers that question.

Synopsis: In Philippians 4:5-7, God talks to us about the matter of peace within. In 4:9, God reveals the source of peace--Himself! Sandwiched in between these verses talking about God's peace is the instruction given to us in 4:8 that is so vital in experiencing that peace. Here, God teaches us how to use our minds biblically. If you and I are to enjoy God's peace within, we must use our minds biblically. God's Word shows us to do that.

Synopsis: The Bible has much to say about the use of the mind. The battleground of spiritual warfare takes place there.

Then we will look at how all that is worked out in life.
Synopsis: We come to the 6th petition in what is commonly called, "The Lord's Prayer."

Synopsis: This message completes our look at the three-step process for Christian growth that is God's reliable plan for us to follow by which the image of God is restored in us. It's a measurable tool whereby we can tell in a concrete way if we are growing to be more like Christ or not.
