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!

Meditating on the Truth

On July 17, Christendom lost another Giant of the Faith, J.I. Packer, was one of the most famous and influential evangelical leaders of our time. He was considered one of three most influential evangelical leaders in England, along with John R.W. Stott and Marty Lloyd Jones. Since 1979 he had been a professor at Regent College in Vancouver. Packer’s magnum opus, the book for which he is best known is titled Knowing God. And since I have had a bit of down-time in the past month, I began to read again, this great Christian classic. A portion of the book that has arrested my attention, is a section titled Meditating on the Truth. The following are Packer’s words on the subject of Christian medi

Practicing Unity & Love During Covid19

In 1977, I was ordained as a minister of the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. And, since that day, the overwhelming desire of my heart has been to lay down my life in service and in love for Christ and His Church. In those early years, Jesus revealed to me that the two greatest visible evidences that the church offers to a watching world were unity and love. Jesus prayed, “Father, may they be one as you and I are one so that the world will know that you have sent me.” Also, on that same night, he said, “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another. By thi s will all men know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” Is it any wonder that the enemy of Christ

We Hold These Truths

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” -The Declaration of Independence, 1776- We live in a time when many would like us to believe that this country’s Founding Fathers were not religious men, or if they were, they were Deists at best. I for one, am convinced the words above, taken from The Declaration of Independence, could not have been written by someone with no faith in God. As we approach July 4, 2020, I invite you to take some time and contemplate the words in that one sentence. Break it down, word by word, phrase b

 

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.
