Outside of his love for God and his family, Wayne Hoag's greatest love is for the Body of Christ. For forty-one years he has been a shepherd of God's flock. From June, 1991 until June, 2017 he served as the Senior Pastor of Sierra Bible Church in the mountain town of Truckee, California. During this time his attention was drawn to the New Testament admonitions that call God's children to either be or do something for their fellow believers in the local church. In fact, the call appears a total of twenty-nine times. Upon further study, Wayne became convinced that the twenty-nine one another admonitions were God's unique strategy to shape and mold His children into the image of His Son. As he continues to serve Sierra Bible Church as one of its teaching pastors, it is also Wayne’s desire to further develop and expand his writing and speaking ministry in regards to the One Another Project.

Great tool for small groups, Sunday School classes or studying with friends!

It Takes A Church

In my last blog post, I shared a quote from Eugene Peterson regarding the reasons that we are exhorted not to neglect our gathering together with our family in Christ. Recently, I have found a similar admonition while reading Alistair Begg’s recent book, Pray Big. In Chapter 7, Alistair expounds on the following passage, “… that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge” (Ephesians 3:17-19). How is that God answers the Apostle’s prayer? Alistair says that He does it through the church. “First, you will not comprehend the love of God in

Do Not Neglect Meeting Together

“And let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some…” (Hebrews 10:24-25). There was a time in my life that I saw this passage as a preacher’s ploy to fill the seats of the church sanctuary. That was before I came to realize that gathering together with my brothers and sisters in Christ for corporate worship, is vital to my overall spiritual well-being as a Christian. As I have noted before, one of my spiritual mentors was the late Eugene Peterson. Speaking of our coming together with the family of God, he wrote, “In worship the community of God’s people assemble to hear God’s word spoken in scripture, sermon, and

Life Together

“Some people have the idea that the church is a place of warning: don’t do this; be careful about that; you are in danger of this; beware of that. They see religion as a series of red lights, stopping us just when we are getting up to speed and about to arrive someplace, causing us to live jerky lives, alternately accelerating and braking.” “I felt that way for many years, and I’m still not quite over thinking that the church is primarily interested in keeping me from making mistakes, from sinning, from going wrong. If that is what you think, I hope to change your mind. The primary concern of what we are doing together in this Christian life is to help one another get in on the whole thing,




In the book of John 1, brotherly love is spoken of without reservation. Point blank: if you question your salvation and you are not in service to or in love with the body of Christ, you are not His. This book helps the Christian get with the program. Great work!


the book lifts up Jesus Christ and what He has to say about a particular subject and never becomes sidetracked by denominational distinctives. The end result is a very helpful and scholarly defended checklist of 29 biblical admonitions that is universally applicable to all believers.


A wonderful book that stresses how important the church, body of Christ, is to our walk and growth in Christ.

Wayne is a very wise man who has a giant heart for God and all his chiildren.

about THE BOOK

He began to see that following the work of salvation in one's life, God then placed the new believer in a local fellowship where they would be further shaped and refined by and through their life with other believers. That is when the One Another Project was born. The Project was originally a ten week series of sermons that were then further explored in weekly home study groups. The questions that were asked and explored in the small groups are listed at the end of each chapter. Pastor Wayne has not only taught these truths to his Truckee congregation but also to others who want to more fully understand God's strategy of the One Another call.


The key verse for this study is Romans 12:5, "...so we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another." As you read may you grow in your understanding of just how much you need your brothers and sisters in Christ.
