Mission Hills Church
"It is for freedom that Christ has set us free." (Galatians 5:1) So why are we so prone to shackling ourselves and others with things that keep us from experiencing that freedom? Join us for a study of the book of Galatians where the Apostle Paul teaches us how to live free by faith.

Mission Hills is a church family—a family who wants to extend to you the same love, hope, and joy that we have received. We know that we cannot be all things to all people. But we do want to be one thing to all people. We want to be the place where anyone, of any age, of any level of spiritual maturity, of any economic class, of any ethnicity, of any church background—or no church background—can meet God in a way that transforms their life…forever!

Legalism is the demand that someone behave in order to belong.
Paul, an apostle -- sent not from men nor by a man, (Gal 1:1a)
It doesn't matter who someone was sent by.
All that matters is what they say about how we belong to God.
but by Jesus Christ and God the Father, who raised him from the dead— (Gal 1:1b)
Belonging to God depends on believing in the resurrection.
The resurrection of Jesus is the proof that God accepted his sacrifice.
Someone was telling the Galatians that belonging to God required more than believing in the resurrection.
We belong to God because of our belief in what Jesus did for us.
I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the One...(Gal. 1:6a)
Depending on religion leads to abandoning relationship.
…who called you to live in the grace of Christ… (Gal 1:6b)
How we live is a by-product of belonging to God by grace
Legalism says believing + behaving -> belonging
Grace says believing -> belonging -> behaving
Someone was telling the Galatians that belonging depended on behaving.
What accomplishes lasting change: the desire for belonging or the experience of belonging?
...and are turning to a different gospel— which is really no gospel at all. (Gal 1:6c-7a)
Legalism unplugs the Gospel from its life-changing power source
If it’s not all grace, it’s no gospel.
