The Challenge of the Church, July 29 2018

Preacher: Stephen Baxter

The “Challenge of the Church” carries with it two ideas. Not only is the church being challenged by the rapid changes taking place in our society and that makes life challenging for God’s people, the existence of the church is and of itself a challenge to the world. In fact, Jesus said we are salt and light to the world. In this series we’ll be exploring how the church is both challenged and called to be a challenge in today’s world and what that means for our lives individually and for the ministry and mission of Hobart Baptist Church.

The Bible reading for this sermon is Matthew 20:1-16 NIV
