Rev. 19:1-10 displays Heaven’s celebration at the fall of Babylon and the marriage supper of the Lamb.

Date: January 22, 2017 Text: Rev. 17:1-18:24 Speaker: Clint Nelson Godless cultures seduce her citizens through sensuality, wealth, and power. The temptation and pressure on the Christian to cave is real. How is one to live in the world, but not be of the world?
Date: January 15, 2017 Text: Rev. 15:1-16:21 Speaker: Clint Nelson The seven bowls of the wrath of God give us a Heavenly perspective on God’s justice and mercy. God’s wrath is designed to produce repentance in the proud, sacrificial witness in the church, and justice for the oppressed.
It's something that I don't talk enough about in our gatherings probably because it's not that much fun. Add in a cultural disdain for organized religion and things like "org charts" and denominational news are often met with glazed over eyes and/or a skeptical heart. And yet, it's all Biblical and critical to who we are and what what we are called to do. Just as our skeleton is critical to the healthy function of our bodies, so too is organism organization. For a church is more like an organism than an organization, but even organisms require design and structure to function. Our church is a living body in submission to the mind and heart of Jesus.

Text: Rev. 14:1-5; 15:1-4 Date: Sunday, January 8, 2017 Speaker: Clint Nelson These two bookend texts give a grounding effect to the crazy that has gone on in our world, is going on, and will go on until Christ comes in all His fullness. They are a call to anchor our lives in what Christ has done, is doing, and has yet to do. It is a call to the people of God to live by faith. But what does a life of faith look like? Our text reveals seven marks of faith. Listen to compare your faith to those revealed in Revelation. There was even a doodle this Sunday to go along with the message:

US IN A NUTSHELL We meet every Sunday at 9:15am and 11:00am at 33837 Prentis Ave. About 300 folks call Parkside home. We are a part of the Foursquare Church of Canada (evangelical-pentecostal). WHAT WE BELIEVE We believe the Bible is God-inspired (2 Timothy 3:16, 17). We believe God is triune: Father, Son and Holy Spirit (2 Corinthians 13:14). We believe that man was created in the image of God, but by voluntary disobedience fell from perfection (Romans 5:12, 19). We believe that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us, signing the pardon of all who believe in Him (John 3:16; Romans 5:8). We believe that we have no righteousness and must come to God pleading the righteousness of Christ (Ephesians 2:8, 9). [...]
