(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.

We have all had different experiences of the Spirit. Sometimes everything seems clear other times this Spirit seems confusing or even silent. How do we make sense of all that?

(Watch Online) It's true and Easter Sunday reminds us...God deeply loves you. How do we know? Jesus died and then he wasn't dead. And because of that reality, we'll be with God forever, which is exactly what He wants, because He deeply loves us.
