The Parkside Insider: April 23, 2021

"Being a Christian is not an individualistic or isolated activity. Believing also involves belonging...

There are hallmarks of church life that should be stamped on all our churches because they are applicable everywhere and anywhere — New Testament values for any size of church, in any part of the world, at any time.

Devoted to God’s Church will serve to help new Christians understand what it is to be part of a church, and will also be a refreshing reminder to every Christian of what it should look like to belong to the family of God." 

Devoted to God's Church is available at Books by the Park or through your favorite bookseller. (Book description courtesy of the publisher.)

Last Week's Sermon From
2 Samuel 8:15-18


During his reign, King David administered justice to his people and chose faithful personnel to help with this task. But even David’s reign was not perfect. As Alistair Begg explains, the king’s rule was the result of promises God had made to David—promises that would find their fulfillment in Jesus, the ascended King. Our hope today remains grounded in the reality of Christ’s return to reign in righteousness over His people.
