Let There Be Light

If you have ever stepped into a dark room, you know the first thing you do is look for some light. You either search for a light switch on the wall or grab your smart phone to help shed some light. Why? Because you know you need some light in order to enter the room. But what if all you knew was a dark room? What if you didn’t know there was supposed to even be any light? That is how God saw the world. People in a room with no light and no reason to think there was even a possibility of light. Into that dark world, He sent His Son, Jesus Christ. And when the Light of Christ entered the world, everything changed, forever!

Follow

If there was one word to describe how a relationship with Jesus begins it would be the word Follow. It was the word that Jesus used to invite people to get to know Him. He invited good people, bad people, religious people, irreligious people, people who behaved and people who didn’t know how to behave to follow Him. Do you want to know who Jesus is, what Christianity is all about or have any desire to connect to God? The invitation from Jesus remains the same. Jesus invites you to follow!

Clear

What does the word Gospel mean to you? To some it is a style of music. To some it is a book or four in the Bible. To others it is a message of good news that needs to be shared. To even others is it something that must be believed or you are going to be in big trouble come eternity! If someone were to ask you what the Gospel is, what woud you say? If there is one thing we need to do, as a church, it is to be crystal clear about exactly what the Gospel is, because the Gospel is the only reason we exist.

A Child Needs You

In a world where it is estimated that 19,000 children die due to conditions of poverty; 640 million children live without adequate shelter and 1.1 billion people live without access to clean water, how can one person make a difference? Why should should we try? Today’s message reminds us why it should matter to us and why we should want to do something about it.

The Other Side Of Freedom

Did you know that there are two sides to freedom? The first side is the one that most of us have experienced and it is one of our favorite sides: Freedom From. We all love to be free from things. Free from rules, free from debt, free from restrictions; you know, just free from things. But there is another side to freedom: Freedom For. The Bible has a lot to say about both sides of freedom. See what it has to say to you.

When we get the basics of faith wrong we are basically headed for trouble. If you have ever taken any time to read the Bible you will discover that people, even people who were intensely devout, had a tendency to get some of the basics backwards. A right understand of the basics provides us with a foundation that can truly hold our faith up and steers us away from trouble. If you were asked “Who is God?”, what would you say? We start there on week one. In this series we want to firm up our foundation by gaining a better understanding of the four main personalities in scripture: God, The Devil, Jesus Christ and The Holy Spirit

Fear Not

Unburdened

Stress. Anger. Expectations. Questions. Addictions. Failures. Pain. Past Mistakes. Hurt. Loss. Broken Relationships. These are just some of the burdens that people carry. They weigh us down and keep us from experiencing the freedom offered to us through Christ. Because of what He did for us on the cross, we don’t have to carry it by ourselves. We can have freedom. We can be UnBurdened.

Faith In God

The foundation of life is faith. You can’t live without faith! Here’s the big “faith” question for us … In what or in whom is your faith placed? Do you trust God? When our faith is in God … our faith produces hope! It’s been said that where there is life, there is hope. Not always! For many people, hope is nothing more than wishful thinking. Hope that is anchored in a faithful God helps me see beyond today with its pains and problems. That kind of hope produces courage! It’s a courage that enables me to give God everything – my life is in His hands! It’s there that I have the courage to obey God, even when it’s hard. Here’s how it works … faith produces hope – hope produces courage – courage takes faith – faith produces

Marriage In Black & White

There is a difference between a cultural understanding of marriage and a scriptural view of marriage. Some say that the Bible is outdated, old-fashioned and just plain wrong about what a marriage could and should be. The one thing that really can’t be said is that the Bible is unclear when it comes to marriage. The Bible is clear and we need to see what it has to say. Agree or disagree, the one thing the Bible doesn’t permit us to do is make something gray that is pretty black and white.

Things Are Looking UP

The Ascension was the culmination and conclusion of God’s work through the earthly ministry of Jesus. It also meant that the Holy Spirit would begin His work in the lives of disciples and Christians. Even though it had been a rollercoaster for the disciples and even though the rollercoaster would continue for them, it was essential to look back with assurance of Christ’s work. It was also essential for them to look forward with confidence that His Holy Spirit would comfort and guide them through all things. For us therefore, we can look back and look ahead with great assurance no matter what the rollercoaster of life looks like…

Holy Week

The message of the Church has been pretty straightforward for the past few thousand years and it includes two important points: 1. Jesus Died and 2. Jesus was raised from the dead. The earliest followers of Jesus went throughout the world spreading that news and we have been commemorating it every year since it happened with a special week of remembrance and worship called Holy Week. This two-part series is taking at look at each of those points in turn and asking the question: So What? You might be surprised by what you hear.

Back To The Future

From the very beginning of the Church, God’s work has always been done through volunteers. On a Sunday when we honor the volunteers that make our church function we take a look at the special ingredients that make volunteering at church so powerful, life-changing and transformational.

The Daniel Plan

Most of us begin the new year with hopes a better year ahead than the one we are leaving behind. Whether or not we make resolutions, all of us have a deep desire to make better choices in the year to come. But how many of us have a plan? How many of us know how to make those annual plans a reality by the time Dec. 31st rolls around again? What if you found out that God is just as much invested in helping you make better choices as you are and that He has a plan? He does and as a church we are going to take 7 weeks to unpack that plan by focusing on taking positive steps and make healthier choices in Five Essential areas of our life.

Economic Atheist

Can you be a Christian and an atheist? When it comes to finances, there are many that try. The funny thing is that Jesus doesn’t really give us an option. We serve God or we serve money. One is a God the other is a pretender. An atheist is a person who does not believe there is a God. An economic atheist is someone who believes (or behaves as if) there is no God over their personal finances. We are all actually economic theists, the question is, are we serving God or something far less when it comes to our finances? Do we pray like theists and handle our finances like atheists?

FootnoteFootnote-web

There are some names in history, like Mary, Joseph, Paul, Peter and a whole host of others that we would never have known except that their lives intersected with the life of Jesus Christ. What we need to realize is that when we live our life to make a name for ourselves, eventually our name simply becomes a footnote of history. But when our lives are lived for the purpose of Christ, we become a part of the most important story in history and a story that has no end.
