I AM the Door

Pastor Jarrod continues our series, I AM, in which we examine the seven famous "I am" statements made by Jesus in the Gospel of John.  In John 10:7, Jesus said, "I am the door of the sheep..."  In this message, we explore what Jesus meant by that rather odd saying, and discover what it means to enter into eternal life through Jesus.

I AM the Light of the World

Pastor Jarrod continues the I AM series, where we examine the seven famous "I AM" statements of Jesus found in John's Gospel.  In this message, Jesus declares, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life” (John 8:12).

I AM the Bread of Life

Pastor Jarrod begins a new series walking us through the seven famous "I AM" statements Jesus made about himself in the Gospel of John.  In this first message, we discover what Jesus mean when he said, "I AM the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst" (John 6:35).

Walking by Faith When Living in Reality

We have enough.  Enough stuff.  Enough.  But one thing we don't have enough of is time.  Time is frustratingly finite, an un-renewable resource & it is precious.  We have a tendency to think that we own our time, but just like everything else in this world, God has called us to be stewards/managers of our time.  We can then choose to walk by sight or we can choose to walk by faith.  According to 2 Corinthians 5:7, "we walk by faith, and not by sight."

Defined by Generosity

In week 3 of our series, Enough, Pastor Andy takes us to 2 Corinthians to see what Paul had to say about generosity.  The Corinthians were very gifted and abundantly blessed... but a little on the stingy side.  Paul taught them (and by extension, us) why it's important to be defined by generosity.

How to Cultivate Contentment

Pastor Andy continues our series on biblical stewardship with a message on contentment.  We believe that God doesn't just give us enough, he gives us more than enough so that we can use the extra to serve the church and bless others.  But, how much is enough.  Can you be content on 90% of what God has given you?  85%?  80%?  Contentment is the bedrock of biblical stewardship, and the Bible has much teach us about how to cultivate an attitude of contentment in your life.

Biblical Stewardship #NotMine

Stewardship probably isn't one of those words you use in your every day vernacular.  Yet, from cover to cover, the Bible's pages are filled with the call to biblical stewardship.  Stewardship is a management term.  But, in order to understand stewardship, we must also understand ownership.  God has given us all things that pertain to life & godliness.  We are managers of all that he has given to us and He has given to us according to our abilities.

The Core Four: Outreach

This message is the final message in a series on the Core Four.  Today, we expand the understanding of what it means to be a disciple.  One aspect of discipleship is "outreach."  How is outreach different than social justice or organizations?  How can Pontiac Bible Church increase it's footprint in our community?  How does the gospel affect culture?  It is our desire to make an impact with the gospel locally, regionally & globally.

The Core Four: Next Generation

In week 3 of our Core Four series, we take a look at the words of Moses in Deuteronomy 6:4-7 and discover how those words define and even dictate how we view and pursue our Next Generation Ministries at PBC.  Above all else, we believe the most important thing we can teach our children and teenagers is to love God with all they are.  This is the essence of the Old Testament Law and the essence of our ministry to children and teenagers at PBC.

The Core Four: Biblical Community

"One of the surest barometers of the quality of your Christian life is the quality of Christian relationships in your life."  Biblical Community as defined by the leaders of PBC is simply "deep, abiding relationships in the body of Christ."  We tackle similar questions as we did last week.  We are in week two of our series, "The CORE Four."  As we look at the compass of discipleship, Biblical Community has to be...at the CORE.
