1. Oikos: A Shift in our Thinking  (Luke 19:1-10)

The current thinking in the church is that we should invite people to church.  However, what we see in the Bible is a “GO” way of thinking, not a “Come” way of thinking.  We need to change the way we view the church.  This first sermon in the Oikos series challenges how we think about […]

2. Oikos: Four Myths About Oikos (Colossians 1:21-25)

6. Oikos: A shift in our Ministry (Mathew 16:18 )

Oikos is a community/kingdom-building model, not a brick and mortar-building model. So, Oikos is not a sermon series, it is not a new idea.  It is a shift in our thinking, and a shift in our ministry.  This last installment of the oikos series moves us to change the world for Christ by influencing our world […]
