Video: "Over, Through and In All" by Alistair Begg

    God’s purpose for His creation has one chief aim: to bring Him glory. Within the context of his letter to the church at Ephesus, the Apostle Paul specifically addressed those called to be God’s children. In the framework of God’s supreme care, Christ provides access to the Father, and the Spirit abides with the believer. Alistair Begg helps us to understand the transcendent providence, power, and presence of our Almighty God.

    Video: "One God and Father of All" by Alistair Begg

    Christian unity is not based on shared experiences, but on the profound truth that God has redeemed a people for His own. Alistair Begg explains that only those who have been redeemed by Christ and belong to God as adopted sons and daughters know God as "Father." Through the Lord Jesus, our infinite God has made himself known to save sinful men and women, and it is the Christian's greatest privilege to say, "I am a child of God."

    Video: "One Baptism" By Alistair Begg

    Although specific baptism practices differ among churches, Paul cited “one baptism” in Ephesians 4 as part of the foundation of Christian unity. Cross referencing this passage with Romans 6, Alistair Begg focuses on the spiritual nature of baptism that applies for all believers at conversion. Our union with Christ in His death and resurrection gives us a new identity—an identity based on Christ’s finished work, not on our feelings. A firm grasp of these truths will enable us to maintain the unity of the Spirit with all who are in Him.

    Video: "The Beginning of Wisdom" by Alistair Begg

    “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.” Alistair Begg explains that the fear of the Lord is humility, trust, confidence, and obedience grounded in the love that He has shown us in Christ. Because the Lord Jesus is the wisdom and righteousness of God, true wisdom can only be found in knowing Him. The duty of Christian parents is to train children in godly wisdom so that they are equipped with a foundation for living and hope for the future.

    Video: "My Help Comes From the Lord" by Alistair Begg

    Video: "One Faith" by Alistair Begg

    Paul wrote to the Ephesians that their unity was grounded in “one faith,” but what does biblical faith look like? Alistair Begg explains that the Christian faith is more than confidence. Built upon the foundation of Christ’s work, faith is a gift of God received by the power of the Holy Spirit as a result of the faithful preaching of God’s Word, and our continuance in faith is evidence of our union with Christ.

    Video: "One Lord" by Alistair Begg

    Most Christians know that “Lord” is not Jesus’ first name, but did you realize that the Bible uses this word—Lord—to mean more than just “master”? In fact it is a divine title, affirming that Jesus is God. Alistair Begg examines how the Bible’s teaching on “one Lord” underpins the unity of those who are in Christ. Those who name Jesus as Lord are characterized by belief in Him, belonging to Him, becoming like Him, and telling others about Him.

    Video: "One Body, One Spirit, One Hope, Part One" by Alistair Begg

    The Apostle Paul frequently referred to the Church as a body, illustrating that the whole is made up of many different parts functioning together as one. Preaching from Ephesians 4, Alistair Begg helps us understand that our union with Christ is what makes us one body. The foundation of our unity isn’t membership in an organization, but the Holy Spirit who indwells each believer. Those who are in Christ are called to a unity that defies cultural expectations and testifies to the power and grace of God, who makes us one in Christ.

    Video: "Humility and Unity" by Alistair Begg

    A “church” isn’t a building, but a group of people who worship together on a regular basis: a local body of believers. The relationships we develop with other Christians are to reflect what God has done and is doing among us, making us one in Christ and conforming us to His image. In this message, Alistair Begg explores Paul’s teaching on Christian unity, showing how humility, gentleness, patience, forbearance, and love contribute to our oneness. As we walk out these characteristics, relying on the Holy Spirit to empower us, we maintain the unity God created among His people.
