Press On Toward "Working Out"
We do NOT need to work FOR our salvation. Thank God! But today, the Bible tells that as God works salvation in us, we get to "work out" or reflect that salvation to the people around us. In a world filled with grumbling and disputing, we get to SHINE God's unearned love...and experience unimaginable joy in the midst of it.
Press on Toward Humility
The word humility can be a confusing word that is often misunderstood. But Humility is one of the most important characteristics that God wants his people to have. So what is it and how can we practice it?
Living In Obedience
Everyone loves to receive Jesus' forgiveness and mercy. But along with that comes a new way of living by following the way of Jesus. Living this new life requires us to humbly submit our lives to the will of God.
The story of Noah and the Flood is one of the most devastating stories of God's justice in the entire Bible. Humanity's evil, violence, injustice, and oppression had caused God's patience to run out. Yet, God also extends mercy and remembers his promise to Eve.
The Grand Story
Everyone loves a good story. In fact, our entire lives are shaped by the stories that we believe about ourselves and the world around us. God has wired us that way which explains why the Bible is filled with stories. In fact, if you have eyes to see, the Bible tells one grand overarching story. And you are a character in God’s story.
New Year Message: Hope & Transformation
Happy New Year! 🎆 As we allow our staff and volunteers to have a break this weekend, we want to offer you some encouragement. In this video message Pastors Mike and Paul lead us in a couple of questions to help us look back on the past year, and ahead to the year to come.
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.
