I calculated that I have preached or taught over 600 times in my 4+ years as pastor of HGBC. During my initial five weeks, I preached a brief series on what I wanted to be the foundation of my ministry at HGBC. Below you will find the sermon texts & themes:
- The Gospel – 1 Corinthians 2:1-5
- The Great Commission – Matthew 28:18-20
- The Marks of the Early Church – Acts 2:42-47
- Correct Teaching
- True Community
- Informed Worship
- Constant Prayer
- The Necessity of Knowing God – Acts 17:22-31
- The Call to Unity Through Humility – Philippians 2:1-11
Have I been beating this drum ever since?
Since these initial sermons, we have studied the following books: Genesis, Ruth, Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Habakkuk, Mark (in Sunday school), John, Galatians, Philippians, James, Titus, Hebrews, a 15 week Old Testament overview, plus the New Testament overview we are currently in. Multiple topics have been covered in short series form as well, to include missions, evangelism, the attributes of God, prayer, finances, death, adoption & orphan care, Respectable Sins, and the Baptist Faith & Message.
We have certainly covered a lot of ground in only 4 years! I would love to hear your thoughts on whether or not we have been faithful in continually building on the foundation I said I aimed to build on.
