Ecclesia Part 14 – Stand Firm – Steve Barr
In a world and culture that has increasing lack of direction, margin and foundation we must stand firm! Jesus has to be the center! Too many people are trying to squeeze Jesus and His Kingdom into an already busy life. We need to give Jesus first place in our lives and out of that foundation and focus we can be Godly individuals, husbands, wives, parents, workers, etc.

    Ecclesia Part 12 – I Will Continue – Steve Barr
    We will continue - persevere - in joy, faith and hope as Paul encourages us from our passage in Philippians. Our grounded faith and expectant hope is based on the reality of all that our Savior Jesus did and said. Never quit loving and serving Jesus! We get to be with Him for all eternity!

    Ecclesia Part 11 – Spread The Good News – Steve Barr
    Today is Palm Sunday! But at Westside today is also “get encouraged to invite your friends to the Easter service next Sunday at the fairgrounds” Sunday! All of us have people in our spheres of influence who need to hear the Good News of Jesus! Evangelism and making an impact is what the Ecclesia - called out ones - healthy churches - do!

    Ecclesia Part 10 – What Really Matters – Steve Barr
    We are continuing our series on Ecclesia - the called out ones - and signs of a healthy church from Philippians. Our salvation should bear fruit in a way that God gets the glory. Growth and increase and letting Jesus be known through us (fruit of our salvation) is what really matters!

    Ecclesia Part 8 – Enjoy the Journey– Steve Barr
    From Philippians 1:6 God is conforming us until the day of Jesus Christ! We can have confidence in our status before Him as He justifies us, as we are being sanctified and one day when we are in His presence will be glorified!

    Ecclesia Part 5 – A Kingdom of Priests – Mark Adams
    As the ecclesia we are the called out ones. We are called out of darkness through God's redemptive act upon the cross. Therefore we are also called into a life of dependence on God and thankfulness for his mercy and grace.

    Ecclesia Part 4 – New Testament Leadership – Steve Barr
    One indicator of a healthy church (Ecclesia) in Philippians is healthy leadership.  The New Testament sets out leadership in the church as 2 offices only - elders and deacons.  Biblical leadership is like having riverbanks for the river to flow in a healthy way.  There is life and fruitfulness and health when there is God ordained leadership!

    Ecclesia Part 3 – Priesthood of all believers – Steve Barr
    We continue our “Ecclesia” series outlining signs of a healthy church out of the book of Philippians. We learn today about the Priesthood of all believers - those who have believed and received Jesus as their Lord. We are Saints and Priests because of our standing before God. We have the privilege of being Holy and set apart to represent the love of God because of what Jesus did on the cross in our place. We all have a job to do as part of the priesthood. We can’t earn anything but we serve because of who He has made us to be and out of huge gratitude to Him!

    Ecclesia Part 2 – Servants In Team – Steve Barr
    A sign of a healthy church is understanding that God always works in team and wants us to work in team. We serve together in team - in unity - with servant hearts. It’s an honor and privilege to serve Jesus and because of our relationship with God, we love and serve one another.
