ABOUT ME

PASTOR. AUTHOR. BLOGGER.

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!

Truth is Truth

The words of an old gospel song say, “My religion’s not old-fashioned, but it’s real and genuine, two and two make four today, as it did in my Lord’s time; Modern days don’t make a difference, you can’t alter truth with time, my religion’s not old fashioned but it’s real and genuine.” “You can’t alter truth with time…” That certainly is not the spirit of the age in which we live. We are told that truth is relative and that what is not true for one might in fact be true for another. Reason would say that two polar-opposite philosophies cannot both be true. Every builder has in his toolbox, a level, a square, and a straight edge. He uses these tools make sure the structure that he is building

A Cloud of Witnesses

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by a great cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith…” (Hebrews 12:1-2). Preceding Hebrews 12, one walks with the writer as he leads them through God’s Hall of Fame in chapter 11. Here is found a listing of men and women of faith and the testimony of their exploits and tribulations. We are told that they all died in faith of the coming Messiah. We then get a picture suggesting that those who have preceded us in the faith are now part of a heavenly crowd, cheering us on to the end of our journe

The Pursuit of Pleasure, His Pleasure

“Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power: for Thou hast created all things, and for Thy pleasure they are and were created” (Revelation 4:11). This morning, as I walked and talked with God, I was overcome with the wonders of a spring day in the Sierras. The trajectory of my walk took me off the beaten path and brought me upon some glorious wildflowers. In that moment I became aware that, more than likely, the only human eyes that would ever gaze upon those flowers, were mine. It’s as if God created them just for me and my pleasure. Unexpectedly, as my heart fill and overflowed, so did my eyes, as a moment of wonder turned into worship. And in that time of worship, I beg

One Way Christians

Two centuries ago, a band of brave souls became known as one-way missionaries. They purchased one-way tickets to the mission field. Instead of suitcases, they packed their few earthly belongings into coffins. As they sailed out of port, they waved good-bye to everyone they loved and everything they knew. They knew they would never return home. A. W. Milne (1785-1822) was one of those missionaries. He set sail for the New Hebrides in the South Pacific, knowing full well that the headhunters who lived there had martyred every missionary before him. Milne did not fear for his life, because he had already died to himself (Galatians 2:20). His coffin was packed. For thirty-five years, he lived am

 

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Jewel

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!

Ray

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.

RangerRed

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.
