Why Read the Bible?

Even people who have been "Church People" for years can struggle to understand the Bible. In this message, Pastor Mike helps us know where to start.

What is Church?

The End, The Beginning

American Christianity gets really weird when it talks about the End Times...it seems to always focus on fear, current events, and geopolitical interpretations. Good News: The focus of the Bible is different. While there's some sobering stuff about the End Times, the Bible teaches us that ultimately, the focus of End Times teaching is: Encouragement. It's pretty simple: Jesus is coming back...and he wants you to be with him when he makes all things new.

The Apostle Paul

It would be difficult to identify a single person more influential in the spread and theology of the early church than the apostle Paul. But Paul considered himself the greatest of all sinners. It’s remarkable how God chooses to use surprising and unlikely people to advance His kingdom and powerfully carry the good news.

Early Church

If the general population heard that church people were showing up to something in their daily lives, would that be good news or bad news? The Early Church demonstrated that Jesus was GOOD NEWS for every part of life. And this is still the mission of our church today.

The Magi

A lot of us have a picture in our minds of the KIND of person that God would be drawn to. For some of you, that picture looks…well…like you. You know that you need forgiveness and grace, but probably not as much as THAT guy. OR, it looks NOTHING like you. You think you don’t have a chance with God. I have good news: You’re both wrong. Today, in “Hard to Ignore”, we are going to take a look at how Jesus defies everyone’s expectations in the story of the Magi. God chooses the most unlikely people - and that’s good news.
