Finding Meaning & Mission in Following Jesus

Weekly Communion services can be found on our YouTube channel @kadinachurchofchrist

Making the most of every opportunity, and finding new and creative ways,

to reach, teach and equip people to know, love and serve Jesus

Take Up Your Cross and Follow Jesus

As Jesus sets his face firmly to go to Jerusalem and the cross, he has begun telling his apprentices regularly about his coming betrayal, suffering, death, and resurrection. As they go on the way, Jesus shows and teaches what it means to follow him. To know God is both a blessing and life’s highest priority.

17th April John 20:24-31 | Hope Explored

Now these have been written in order that you may trust that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and so that in his name, as you are trusting, you may have life. ~ John 20:31

Jesus may not be physically visible on earth any more, but he is present through the words of his disciples and the work of his Spirit. And he says: “Stop doubting and put your trust in me”. He invites us to find life in his name. 

Trusting God's Plan

In this Sunday series we look at the first few chapters of the Gospel as recorded by Luke. We particularly focus on the way we see different people trusting God's plan of redemption. We are encouraged to trust God's plan of redemption as we follow Jesus today and into the future because we know His faithfulness and power to act in the past. 

Inasmuch as many have undertaken to present a narrative account concerning the things that have been fulfilled among us, just as those who from the beginning were eyewitnesses and servants of the word have given them over to us, it seemed good also to me, having investigated everything carefully from the beginning, to write it down methodically for you, most excellent Theophilus, so that you may know the certain security of the words about which you were instructed. ~ Luke 1:1–4

The Story of God

The use of stories and times of deep, shared interaction are an historically proven and powerful way of helping people as they follow Jesus. We live in stories. Stories are the language of our world. Stories speak to the mind, the body, the emotions—our spirits. Together we learn about life as we connect through stories. We all yearn to know many of the same parts of the Story. . .

What happened before time began? How did all of this start? Who or what created me? Why do I exist? Does my life really matter? Does it have meaning? To whom? What happens after I die? Why is the world the way it is? Things don’t seem to be going that well. . . .

Learning the Story of God can be a starting point of following Jesus, with times of conversation, interaction, and reflection, that serve as a foundation for knowing who God is, knowing who we are in Christ Jesus and how we are part of the story.

every day Gospel Basics

The Gospel Story

In part one, we will walk through the character of God, our relationship with God, the results of sin, how Jesus came to make us right with God, and how God invites us to live on-mission. We want people to know who God is and what love is, so that when they hear, “God loves you!” they understand what it means. Because God is love and because He is forgiving and compassionate, Jesus comes and saves us. Because Jesus saves us and we are friends with God, we live on-mission.

For by that gracious favour you are saved through trusting in him, and this is not from yourselves it is the gift of God, not from works, so that no one can boast. For we are his creation, having been created in Christ Jesus for good works, that God prepared beforehand, so that we might walk in them. ~ Ephesians 2:8–10

28th February - 2 Corinthians 5:11 - 6:2 | Gospel Purpose - God is Making All Things New

Our Gospel Identity

When we put our trust in Jesus, we are made new, given a new beginning and a new end.

Jesus said, “Truly, truly I say to you, unless someone is born again [from above], he is not able to see the kingdom of God.” John 3:3.

Peter, one of Jesus’s best friends, said, “...God has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead." 1 Peter 1:3

This new life has nothing to do with what we have done or what we can do. It has everything to do with who God is, what He has done, and what He can do. In this section of the journey, we are going to cover a few changes in our identity and what it means to be ”in Christ.“ Throughout this section, we will be reminded of God’s character and the new identity we receive in Christ.

These four lessons can be summed up in what Paul wrote in 2 Corinthians 5:17: “So then, if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation; the old things have passed away; Look! New things have come!

Our Gospel Life

We have learned about who God is and what He has done for us. We have also learned about how God changes us and makes us new people. Now we are going to talk about how we live and what we do differently because of Jesus.

We want to be equipped to see all of life as ministry and mission, to live out the gospel in everyday activities—everyday rhythms. There are transferable patterns or rhythms of life that we see throughout “The Story of God” and in every culture in every part of the world. Through each of these rhythms, people have the opportunity to walk by faith (walking in line with the truth of the gospel) or walk in fear or prideful rebellion to God (walking in unbelief).

Ephesians 4:1 says, “Therefore . . . lead a life worthy of your calling, for you have been called by God.

But there is yet another promise: this King is coming back for His people!" ~ Scott James

Caring for One Another

Video summaries of a previous sermon series based on Ed Welch's book 'Caring for One Another: 8 Ways to Cultivate Meaningful Relationships'. 

Imagine . . . an interconnected group of people who entrust themselves to each other. You can speak of your pain, and someone responds with compassion and prayer. You can speak of your joys, and someone rejoices with you. You can ask for help with sinful struggles, and someone prays with you.

The goal of this book is that these meaningful relationships will become a natural part of daily life in your church. With short chapters and discussion questions meant to be read in a group setting, Ed Welch guides small groups through eight lessons that show what it looks like when ordinary, needy people care for other ordinary, needy people in everyday life.

Books are available for group, couple or individual use. Download the preface and first chapter of the book here.
