Reflections on Spiritual Formation: Can I Change? In today's mid-week teaching we ask the question, "Can I actually change?" So many of us experience the hopeless feeling of being stuck. Have you struggled with this? Why can't I seem to break bad habits, or stop eating junk food, or live a more loving life? If you are anything like me (or the 7.5 b…
 
He is risen! Welcome to our Easter celebration. We are so glad to have you with us today. The bodily resurrection of Jesus is the cornerstone of the Christian faith. Join us as we explore one of the primary results of the resurrection of Jesus - reconciliation. Reconciliation between Jews and Gentiles was the original gospel issue that dominated th…
 
Hosanna! Today we celebrate the Triumphal Entry of Jesus into Jerusalem. Within a few short days many of the same people who welcomed Jesus with the waving of palm branches and shouts of acclamation were shouting "Crucify him!" Why did things change so quickly? Today we examine the expectations we put on God and what happens when He doesn't do what…
 
Costly Faith: When It Costs Too Much (2) Jesus didn't pretend that following Him would be easier than it actually is. He wasn't going to falsely advertise a life of ease and comfort. Rather, Jesus warned anyone who expressed interest in following Him of the cost. It was a cost that He knew all too well. It was a cost that He was ready and willing t…
 
Costly Faith - Faith When It Costs Too Much (Part 1) Did you know that a Gentile prostitute is listed in both the genealogy of Jesus and listed among the heroes of the faith in Hebrews 11?

Costly Faith: When I Need to Forgive (1) Jonah might not be the first story that comes to mind when you think about the theme of forgiveness, however, underneath the narrative lurks the question from God to His prophet Jonah, "Jonah, are you willing to forgive your enemies?"

Abraham got really scared, and then h…
 
Reflections on Spiritual Formation: Spiritual Disciplines If you have ever done even the most cursory exploration on the topic of spiritual formation, it's likely that you have come across the topic of spiritual disciplines.

Costly Faith: Faith When I'm Betrayed (2) Today we wrap up our two part teaching "Faith When I'm Betrayed" within our "Costly Faith" series. Jesus knew what it was like to be betrayed.

Reflections on Spiritual Formation: Start Fresh, End Right It is hard to over emphasize the importance of healthy daily rhythms.

"What is Faith?" Hebrews 11 Join us today as we begin a brand new series titled "Costly Faith." Faith is the English translation of the Greek word pistis.

"When Waiting Hurts" Luke 1:26-38 & Matthew 1:18-25 Today we continue our Advent series "We Wait for You."

This morning's teaching explores this tension w…
 
A Path Forward: Power and Authority The last two verses of Matthew 7 reveal quite a bit about Jesus and the effect He had on those who heard him.

In His departing remark…

A Path Forward: Obedience Over Sacrifice The closing of the Sermon on the Mount is all about obedience. It isn't enough to simply hear the words of Jesus.
