Join Greg as he shares four principles that explain how God forgive us and sets us free and how he empowers us to share and pass on his forgiveness to others.
Martin Luther King Jr. had a dream and so do we, as Christ-followers. Dreamers are often misunderstood and despised. Jesus had a dream and that dream is alive as he lives within us.
It might seem that God loves us because he has to – that’s who he is. But, it’s more than that! If he likes us then he really wants to be around us – if he likes us he can’t get enough of us
Our immediate reaction when we hear of buried treasure is to think of swashbuckling pirates who are walking on the wild side. But Jesus offers a different take on buried treasure.
Which will it be – Moses and the curse of the law – or grace and truth to which we are invited by Jesus?
John 1:18 tells us until the birth of Jesus, God the One and Only, no one had ever seen God. Through his birth, life, teachings, death and resurrection God the Son makes the Father known. Join us for our annual Christmas sermon as we celebrate the incarnation – the birth of God in the flesh.
In his suffering and service Jesus glorified the Father, yet ironically the glory of God is not how we perceive and understand glory.
Jesus is not a member of any religious denomination – no one owns him or has the franchise to represent him. Join us as we consider the far reaching implications of the gospel.
Jesus is the answer to this question… indeed of all questions … but asking this question helps us draw a necessary and important distinction between the kingdoms of this world and the kingdom of God.
When we choose Jesus, we choose hope over despair and love over hate. We choose forgiveness over bitterness and peace over anger. Because of Jesus we are thankful.
Our passage in the first chapter of the first epistle of Peter reveals and expounds on our heavenly inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. Join us as we discuss two sides of eternity – this side in the here and now and the one to come, the other side of eternity.
“A righteousness from God, apart from law, has been made known… this righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe” (Romans 3:21-22). Christ-less religion offers cheap counterfeit righteousness. So whose righteousness will you choose?
Jesus creates the new wine of the new covenant at the wedding feast – it is living, dynamic and will burst old religious containers. All are invited to receive The Living Water – but not many seem to be drinking it in.
Some believe that everything that happens is for a good reason and that everything that happens is “God’s plan.” Is that true? What does the Bible say?
Join us for a fundamental and basic perspectives of the Grace of God in a short class that might be called “Grace 101” – based on Romans 5:1-5.
God’s grace is offered to you and me and all humanity, whether we want it or accept it or not. God’s grace is offered to everyone – and that means people will not “get what’s coming to them” – even if we believe that’s not fair!
Ceremonies and calendars – rituals and regulations – programs and prescriptions – are the center of all reality for religious captives and addicts. Jesus is the center of all reality for Christ followers.
We are loved by God. We are treasured and cherish by him. Above all, that’s who we, as Christ-followers, are.
The best time to plant a tree is 20 or 30 years ago… the second best time to plant a tree is today!
Apart from the life of our risen Lord living in us, we are all dead men and dead women walking.
Beware of those who loudly and dogmatically request you to look at their traditions and faithfulness when in fact we need to fix our eyes on Jesus.
Jesus is not searching for people who are worthy of his love or who will love him right back, in an equivalent manner. Jesus loves us as and where we are, transforming us into his new creation, far from what where we were when we initially trusted him.
What is heaven? Where is heaven? Is heaven achieved and must we qualify for it in order to “make it”? Can we labor in such a way that we eventually climb up to heaven?
Kenosis is a Greek word that Paul used to describe the self-emptying, self-giving, self-sacrificial love of Jesus. He came to give rather than acquire. He came to serve rather than be served. He came to be condemned rather than condemn.
Does God love us in and when we deserve his love? Must we live so that he will love us, or should we live because he already loves us?
