Sin That Leads To Death

Watch "Sin That Leads To Death" By Greg Sidders
White Pine Community Church January 13, 2019

"There is a sin that leads to death."

If you're a sinner (and who isn't?), you can't help but be shaken up by that statement in 
1 John 5:16. You want to make sure you never commit that sin--or you wonder if someone you love has done so.

Rather than rushing right past this verse, we've decided to slow down and strive to understand it. I hope you'll join us as we search for life-saving truth together.

His Door Is Always Open

Watch "His Door Is always Open" By Greg Sidders
White Pine Community Church January 6, 2019

If I were to ask you how powerful prayer is based on the Bible, and then I were to ask you how powerful it is based on your experience, would you give me the same answer?

Why do so many of us (including me, if I'm being honest) pray with less success than we think we should? This Sunday at White Pine, we are going to learn from 1 John 5:14-17 what is missing from our prayers that, if added, may unleash the kind of power the Bible promises.

Peace On Earth

Watch "Peace On Earth" By Greg Sidders
White Pine Community Church December 24, 2018

Peace on earth—peace that creates inner stillness despite holiday hyperactivity, peace that blankets warring factions when they seek common ground, peace that alleviates fear in the face of overwhelming challenges—seems to be in short supply these days. But the promise of peace on earth proclaimed by angels on that first Christmas night is still available today.

How To Have A Merry Christmas

Watch "How To Have A Merry Christmas" By Josh Sibert
White Pine Community Church December 23, 2018

Are you tired of hearing "Merry Christmas" and "Happy Holidays"?  Others may be looking forward to a holly, jolly Christmas, but for you, this is shaping up to be a blue, blue Christmas.  It may be because of whom you have lost or what you don't have, or it may be for reasons you don't fully understand, but for you, finding joy right now is a challenge.

I'm not going to promise that you will be transformed into a person full of Christmas cheer like Scrooge after his Nightmare before Christmas, but you will be encouraged, and you will learn some practical tips on how to minimize sadness and have a merrier Christmas than your circumstances predict.

Proof Positive

Watch "Proof Positive" By Greg Sidders
White Pine Community Church December 16, 2018

Do you think God wants you to know, before you die, whether or not you are going to heaven?

Ask the apostle John that question, and you won't get a one-word answer; you'll get an five-chapter book. His purpose for writing the book we've been studying for the past two months is to give Christians confidence about their eternal destiny.

We will study together 1 John 4:13 - 5:13, you'll know exactly where you stand with God.

Johnny One Note

Watch "Johnny One Note" By Greg Sidders
White Pine Community Church December 9, 2018

Jesus had a nickname for the apostle John, and so do I.

To Jesus, he was a Son of Thunder. But to me, he's Johnny One Note. That's because he repeats himself more than any other New Testament writer. In fact, sometimes the book of 1 John sounds like a broken record.

The question is, why did the Spirit of God inspire John to keep repeating himself? Might it be because He knew how thick the skulls of his readers would be? No doubt you have already heard what John will be repeating to us in 1 John 4:7-12. But how well have you been listening? I pray you'll come with ears to hear, again, Johnny's one note.

Don't Get Duped

Watch "Don't Get Duped" By Greg Sidders
White Pine Community Church November 18, 2018

In an anti-Jesus world, anyone who is pro-Jesus feels like kin. But before you affirm their faith or follow their teachings, it would be wise to find out whether the Jesus they believe in is the same Jesus you believe in.

What do true Christians believe about Jesus? That's the question we will find answers to in this week's study of 1 John 3:24 - 4:6. If you want to follow the real Jesus and help others to do the same, don't miss this Sunday's service!
