What is the church, and how do we relate with each other and northeast Indiana?
"Full time ministry is what you dedicate to the Lord in your work." Ed Moy is the 38th Director of the US Mint (2006-2011), television commentator, author, White House staffer, business executive, pastor, corporate director, and above all, a follower of Jesus. Through his story, Ed shares how service to the Lord is more than a Sunday event but an everyday working reality.
Our Church Covenant
What is a covenant?
A promise to perform in a certain manner
-God and Man (Genesis 2:16,17; 9:1-17; 15:18)
-Leader and People (Joshua 24:1-28)
-Person to Person (Genesis 31:43-55)
-Descriptions of a local church
The Church Is A FELLOWSHIP!
Acts 2:42 “And they devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching, to fellowship, to the breaking of bread, and to prayers”
A top priority in a fellowship is HARMONY and UNITY.
The Church Is A FAMILY!
1 Peter 3:8 “Now finally, all of you should be like-minded and sympathetic, should love believers, and be compassionate and humble”
1 Timothy 5:1-2 ”Do not rebuke an older man, but exhort him as a father, younger men as brothers, older women as mothers, and with all propriety, the younger women as sisters.”
We operate on the basis of RELATIONSHIPS not RULES.
The Church Is A BODY
1 Corinthians 12:27 “Now you are the body of Christ, and individual members of it.”
We are a body — not a business!
We are an organism — not an organization!
The Church Is A FLOCK
The Church is cared for and led by SHEPHERDS.
1 Peter 5:1-3

Listen to St Joe sermons via your favorite podcast platform.
B: Bible book
Many sermons in the St. Joe archive are machine-transcribed. St. Joe is presently transcribing its entire sermon library to render its content more easily accessible to the deaf and hard of hearing, those who speak English as a second language, and to make the sermon content searchable for everybody. While machine transcription makes this logistically and financially more viable, accuracy is sometimes sacrificed. St. Joe is gradually replacing machine transcription with human transcription as time and financial resources allow. Each sermon costs between $30 to $60 to transcribe. If you would like to help see the preached Word of God become accessible to more people, please consider an investment in the St. Joe ministry through the PayPal platform by sending funds to StJoeOnlineGiving@gmail.com, or click here.
