Messages by David Shields
The Church is many things, but ultimately it has a mission to make disciples. Pastor David walks through what the mission of the church is and how we can be pulled off mission.
The story of David and Bathsheba is a well known story, but it is not always a well understood story. Bathsheba is often portrayed as a seductress, but does the text treat her this way? Take a look at what this dark story has to teach us about the brightness of the gospel.
The story of Ruth is not primarily a love story, but actually a story about loyalty. Pastor David shows us what the story of Ruth teaches us about Jesus.
Here is the first sermon in our Advent series looking at the life of Tamar in Genesis 38. This is a passage that most people tend to skip over because of how uncomfortable it can make us. Pastor David unpacks it to show us what this weird story tells us about Jesus.
Joshua has reached the end of his ministry and gives one last message to the people of Israel. He wants them to choose what god they will serve.
How are believers supposed to act when we hear about other believers sin? What should a confrontation look like? What about when someone confronts us about our own sin? These are some the questions that Pastor David answers in Joshua 22.
It can be often hard to know who to trust. Politicians and people break their promises all the time. But Pastor David shows how Joshua chapters 10-21 reveal a God who always keeps His promises. Every single promise that He made to Abraham and Joshua has finally come true.
