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.

True Christianity

“Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in love, give preference to one another, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; rejoicing in hope, persevering in tribulation, devoted to prayer, contributing to the needs of the saints, practicing hospitality. Be of the same mind toward one another; do not be haughty in mind but associate with the lowly. If possible, as far as it depends on you, be at peace with all men” (Romans 12:9-18). My morning reading included the verses above, followed by a reading from Oswald Chamber’s My Utmost for His Highest. Today, his writings converged with the passage that I just quoted. Oswald wrote, “When the Holy Spiri

No Divisions Among You

“Now I exhort you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all agree and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be made complete in the same mind and same judgment. For I have been informed concerning you, my brethren, that there are quarrels among you” (1 Corinthians 1:10-11). “And I, brethren, could not speak to you as spiritual men, but as men of flesh, as to infants in Christ. I gave you milk to drink, not solid food; for you were not yet able to receive it. Indeed, even now you are not yet able, for you are still fleshly. For since there is jealousy and strife among you, are you not fleshly, and are not walking like mere men?” (1 Corinthians 3:1-3). I love p

Love is the Glue

“So, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience; bearing with one another, forgiving each other, whoever has a complaint against anyone; just as the Lord forgave you, so also should you. Beyond all these things put on love, which is the perfect bond of unity.” Colossians 3:12-14 I have been pondering the subjects of unity and love and how they empower Christ’s church to be a visible witness to a watching world. As I have been prayerfully searching the word of God, I keep coming across passages that link the two together, such as the one I’ve just presented to you. In this passage, we see that unity needs a

That All People Will Know, Part Two

On the night that our Lord Jesus was betrayed, He prayed to His Father that His followers would be perfected in unity, so that the world would see visible evidence that that He was God’s Chosen One, the Jew’s Messiah, and Savior of the world. Earlier that evening, from the upper room, Jesus said to His disciples, “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this will all people know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another” (John 13:34-35). As you consider Jesus’ call for His followers to walk together in unity and love, don’t miss the two caveats that truly are one. “May they be one Father, as

That the World May Know, Part One

On the night of Jesus’ Last Supper with His disciples, He made two incredible statements about the posture of His church in the world, a posture that would provide undeniable evidence of His Messiah-ship and the true mark of a disciple. These two manifestations are unity and love. Let’s take a moment to look at the first. Just before leaving the upper room, Jesus prayed for unity among His follower, no less than three times. Here is part of that prayer from John 17. “I am no longer in the world; and yet they themselves are in the world, and I come to You. Holy Father, keep them in Your name, the name which You have given Me, that they may be one even as We are. I do not ask on behalf of thes

 

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.
