What the Spirit Is Saying to the Church

If Jesus wrote a letter to our church today, what would he say? Would he have any words of commendation? How would he challenge us as we seek to be his church in our community?

Every church continually needs to hear a fresh word from God, and ours is no different. We want to be the chuch that God wants us to be, and for that to happen, we must not only hear from him but follow him. What might he say to us—about our beliefs, attitudes, and actions?

In the early part of the book of Revelation, wee see a good sample as Jesus dictates letters to seven churches in Asia Minor. He has a specific message to each church and an encouragement to overcome the challenges in their midst. To each, he says, "He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches." What can we learn from these letters? Can we discern today what the Spirit is saying to the churches—and specifically to our own?

Here is a list of messages in this series...

40 Days of Loving

February 26-April 6, 2017

Jesus wants his disciples to be well-balanced in growth. While our gifts and passions may lead us to be stronger in one area more than another, we are not to neglect any area of the Christian life. Here at Clairmont Hills Baptist Church, we speak of growing in "Head, Heart, Hands, and Feet." That is a simple, memorable way to remember that...

A Disciple Learns (HEAD)
A Disciple Loves (HEART)
A Disciple Serves (HANDS)
A Disciple Shares (FEET)

In past years, we have emphasized feet in 40 Days of Sharing, focusing on our call to share the message of Jesus with those around us and around the world, and hands in 40 Days of Serving, focusing on our responsibility to minister to one another and to our community. We will explore the heart—our love—during this forty day period.

This emphasis will feature messages from our pastor each Sunday, Life Group lessons, and a daily reading during each of the forty days. Booklets will be available with these readings; if you would rather receive the daily devotion as an email, please This email address is being protected from spambots.

Everyone Needs a Church...

To answer the questions of life . . .

Questions like, “Who am I?” “What’s my purpose?” “What is God really like?” and “Why do bad things happen?” Jesus Christ and His church are uniquely qualified to answer life’s most basic questions.

To share life’s happiness...

The precious moments of life are meant to be shared: the beginning of new life together in marriage, the birth of a new child, the baptism of new believers... these milestones, plus the joy of simple pleasures, are enhanced by the community of a loving congregation.

To help face tragedies...

Everyone faces trouble in life: sorrows, disappointments, sickness, death. Needed support and comfort flows freely from those who share a common faith. How much we need one another in times like these!

To teach about God and the purposes He has for us...

Survey after survey reveals an overwhelming belief in God. But what is He like? How do we know Him? God has answered those questions through the Bible, the special book that is the guide for the church.

To share God’s message and help those in need...

We can do more together than we can do alone. God has always called together a community of believers to help one another and to spread the good news of Jesus Christ. His message can bring healing to a hurting world. Yes, everyone needs a church, and at Clairmont Hills, we would love to be yours!
