Join us Sundays 10am @ Franklin Middle School - 211 E. Franklin Ave.

Colossians 1

Posted on: June 21st, 2017 by Antioch Wheaton

This Sunday, Gwen opened our series by looking what Colossians 1 reveals about Jesus being first in everything – globally as the Gospel is increasing and bearing fruit around the world and individually as the Holy Spirit is at work within us to bring every aspect of our lives under the Kingship of Jesus (that He would be first in everything!)  As we make space to dig into Colossians this month, she encouraged us to read deeper rather than read more, to stop and respond to the Word as He stirs our hearts and minds with His truth.

 

 

Pentecost

Posted on: June 6th, 2017 by Antioch Wheaton

 

Pentecost is the day we remember when the Holy Spirit fell on believers for the first time.  But it was only the first fruit of what is now to come for us today.  In this week’s message Pastor Chris explored why we need the Holy Spirit today, and how to live it out.

Building for Now and Eternity

Posted on: May 31st, 2017 by Antioch Wheaton

We closed our Great Beyond series this week as Chris spoke about living lives of purpose for now and eternity. God’s plan for each one of us is a life of significance both now and in eternity.

The Judgment Seat of Christ

Posted on: May 15th, 2017 by Antioch Wheaton

 

We continued our Great Beyond series this week as Chris spoke about the Judgement Seat of Christ. For most of us when we hear the word judgement we can tend to get intimidated or afraid. We worry about being judged and losing out. But this event, that all followers of Jesus will face, is not a time to be feared but a time to be anticipated. (more…)

Reality Of Hell And Our Response To It

Posted on: May 8th, 2017 by Antioch Wheaton

 

Although it isn’t something we like to talk about, hell is real.  This week Pastor Chris discusses hell, and how we should respond to the knowledge of it.

Heaven

Posted on: May 4th, 2017 by Antioch Wheaton

This week Gwen looked at what the Bible says about Heaven (the place where God chooses to dwell), the resurrection of the dead and our eternal lives.  Looking back at Genesis 1 & 2, we see that we were created to be in perfect, unbroken relationship with God, each other and the earth created for us.  But the effect of our disobedience and rebellion against God’s authority brought all creation under the curse of death.   (more…)

Easter Sunday

Posted on: April 29th, 2017 by Antioch Wheaton

Pastor Chris talked this Easter about finding the living among the dead.  Early on the first Sunday women went to Jesus’ tomb looking for him, but were told he wasn’t there.  So often in our lives, we are looking for life, but we are looking for it among the dead.

Palm Sunday

Posted on: April 11th, 2017 by Antioch Wheaton

This week Chris unpacked the Palm Sunday story found in John’s gospel. The story of Palm Sunday is both beautiful and tragic. The beauty of the story is in the way the people received Jesus as their king as he entered into Jerusalem. (more…)

Interview on Thriving in Marriage

Posted on: April 6th, 2017 by Antioch Wheaton

This week Chris interviewed Antioch Overseers, Dean & Tamara Roberts on the subject of marriage. While this was a marriage specific topic, something we believe is a critical topic. You could very easily apply each of the questions they discussed too many different types of relationships we each have. Whether you married or not, you encounter God’s heart for thriving relationships.
