"Character" Sermon Notes

Do you remember your parent or some sort of adult figure challenging you to not follow the direction of your peers? It used to go something like this: “If your friends jumped off a cliff would you, too?” There is a point to be made. For Daniel and his friends, being captives in Babylon did not mean they had to assimilate to the ways of Babylon. Early on they faced a defining choice. And whether we know it or not, so do we. We have a choice to make that will determine our integrity and our influence.

About Our Current Series

“The world is going to hell in a handbasket,” as many commonly say. It is true that we are watching the rise of secularism reach new heights as the prevailing culture pressures Christ-followers to adapt or move to the margins of society until they are in total obscurity or extinction. The Bible refers to this kind of society as “Babylon.” We are in Babylon and we have a choice to make. Will we compromise? Will we retreat and hide? Or will we thrive? Join us as we learn what it looks like to thrive in Babylon!
