The Purpose of Christmas

Text: Mark 1:1-15
Pastor Curt Stapleton

Regardless of our own personal traditions surrounding the celebration of Christmas, today’s text illuminates what its real purpose is. As we see through the message of John the Baptist and Jesus’ first public sermon, the purpose of Christmas is to call us to repentance and faith, that we may abandon our self-sufficiency and believe the gospel.
