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!

The Dangers of Drifting

“Therefore, we must pay much closer attention to what we have heard, lest we drift away from it” (Hebrews 2:1). I have always been fascinated by this verse because it is a warning, given to Christians, concerning a very subtle danger in the lives of us all, drifting. Here is the picture. A boat is tied to the pier but not tied securely enough. As the waves lap against the sides of the the boat, it is rises and falls with the waves. The rope that attaches it to the pier loosens to the place that it eventually drops into the water. Now untied, the boat begins to move away from the pier with every ensuing wave. Slowly but surely the boat begins to drift away from pier and the harbor and after a


Every once in a while, I find myself so very homesick for a place that I have not yet been. This same longing filled the heart of the Apostle Paul and he mentioned it from time to time. “I prefer to be absent from this body and to be at home with the Lord” (II Corinthians 5:8) or “I am hard pressed, having the desire to depart and be with Christ, for this is very much better” (Philippians 1:23). My personal longings were recently stirred when reading the poetry of Emily Dickenson (which I highly recommend). She wrote… I never saw a moor; I never saw the sea; Yet know I how the heather looks, and what a wave must be. I never spoke with God, nor visited in heaven; Yet certain am I of the spot

Acceptable in His Sight

“Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my rock and my Redeemer” (Psalm 19:14). For the last couple of days I have been pondering the verse above, it is a prayer that recognized that God not only hears the words that come out of our mouths but He also knows our thoughts and the intentions of our hearts. The Psalmist David reiterates this in another Psalm, where he wrote, “You know when I sit down and when I rise up; you discern my thoughts from afar” and “Even before a word is on my tongue, behold, O Lord, you know it all together” (Psalm 139:2 & 4). If you are anything like me, one of these facts is more disturbing than the other. Most




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.
