If the most important thing we do is to love God then it's crucial that we have an understanding of who God really is. To do that it's crucial that we work through some of our assumptions and misconceptions about God.
As we pursue God, we have to ask, "Who is this God?" The story of Exodus challenges us to embrace the mystery and awe of God.
We all like to think we'd respond faithfully if our faith were tested, but we don't really know until the moment. Discipleship is the pursuit of Christ. What happens when we receive significant pushback in that pursuit?
Paul told a group of philosophers that the God of Gods had arranged individual human lives for the express purpose of seeking God. If that's true, then that means your life right now could lead you to God. How is God using your circumstances to draw you toward Himself?
A half-hearted faith is like warning lights on the dashboard. It means something is wrong. Our hearts, if unchecked will pull in different directions. This will always result in human disintegration and dissatisfaction. How do we pull the separate parts of our hearts back together?
Before loving God, before faith in God, there’s another, even more, basic element of our connection to Him. What could be more fundamental than love and faith? Explore the surprising answer with us!
One's faith decision is personal. And yet, we cannot thrive as a Christian without fellowship. In Acts 2, Luke lists four marks of discipleship - only 4, and fellowship was #2. If we are not spending time together on days not called Sunday, then we are missing out.
Over the last 25 years, technology has become integrated into practically every part of our lives. We have a relationship with tech but we haven't stopped to think about if it's the kind of relationship we want. How can we use technology to better our lives and glorify God?
(Watch Online) Ask someone how they're doing and they're likely to include in the answer, "busy". Our culture view busyness as a virtue. But God creates well-being in humans by commanding something different.
(Watch Online) Could God's instructions that were meant to guide and bless Israel provide a "rule of life" today for disciples of Jesus?
(Watch Online) What is the mission of the church? What is our role in God's plan? We answer these questions as we celebrate our most recent graduates.
(Watch Online) Of all the potential changes we could make to improve our lives, what is the ONE that will make the most difference?
(Watch Online) All of us have areas of our lives we'd like to improve; often, we've been wanting to be better for years. The problem with change isn't lack of desire; it's something else. What do we need to align our habits and our hearts?
(Watch Online) We all want to belong. How do we discover that perfect sense of community with imperfect people that make up the church?
(Watch Online) Yes, church is family but, sometimes there is conflict. How does scripture encourage us to navigate our way back to unity?
The Church is glorious but, only as it reflects its builder - Jesus Christ. The church gives us a sense of belonging that gives us direction and purpose. What did Paul pray for the church? What did Jesus pray for the church?
What does it mean to be a part of the family of God? Why do we need the local church? When we become a follower of Christ, God welcomes us into His grand story for the world. We receive love and support from our fellow Christians and live out His plan for redemption for our local community in the local church.
Jesus redefined family. He called everyone who was working toward Him his brothers and sisters. The church isn't just singing or teaching or reading Scripture, it's our home. Our faith is personal, but without the faith community, we are left wanting.
The conversation around race centers around justice. We tend to assume justice equals fairness. But real, Biblical justice includes an element that we typically overlook. Without it, there will never be true justice.
Humans naturally tend toward exclusion and division. We have to fight for inclusion and to keep expanding the circle of who belongs, especially in the church.
