Jesus the Resurrection

I AM Teacher and Lord

Did you know that Jesus told his followers to wash each other’s feet? While that may seem weird to us, there is incredible meaning to what Jesus said. He was telling his disciples (and us) to love one another, and to live in radical humility. This is only possible when we draw from the source of love and humility itself — Jesus Christ, the crucified and risen Lord.

The Resurrection

Learning to trust that Jesus is the resurrection & the life.

I AM the Good Shepherd

Two Sides of Freedom

On this Memorial Day, we remember the sacrifices made for the freedom we enjoy.  Jesus made the ultimate sacrifice to provide for us the ultimate freedom.  Today we look at the two sides of freedom, that we are set free from but also set free to.

Born Blind

Jesus clears things up.

The Stones

Jesus teaches that humans have conviction without condemnation.

I AM the Light of the World

Because of sin, and apart from Christ, we live in darkness. The darkness of shame, the darkness of guilt, the darkness of self-loathing, the darkness of separation from God. But there’s good news: Jesus told He is the Light of the World, and that by following Him we can have new and eternal life.

Mary Moms

Mary’s life teaches us how womanhood and motherhood can glorify God.

Confidence in God’s Care

What if I told you that no matter what circumstance you find yourself in, you can have confidence that the God of the Universe is personally caring for you? That’s exactly what Psalm 23 tells us. If you have trusted Jesus Christ with your life, the Lord is your Shepherd, and you need not want, but the Shepherd watches over your soul.

Don’t Be Afraid To Let Go

In a rapidly changing world with tragedy striking everyone. Is there someone we can trust so our lives are not ruled by worry, doubt, and fear?

Everybody’s Doing It

The woman at the well and Jesus feeding thousands of people teach us about satisfaction.

Jesus, the Bread of Life

What are you looking to for fulfillment? In John 6, Jesus declares, “i am the bread of life” to point us to himself as the true and lasting satisfaction of our deepest desires,

I AM the Bread of Life

Jesus was a master at using physical things to illustrate spiritual truths. In John chapter 6, Jesus uses physical hunger and bread to teach us about eternal life. His point was that while bread can temporarily satisfy our physical hunger, only faith in Him can eternally satisfy our spiritual hunger. We were made to be in relationship with God, and it’s only through a relationship with Jesus that we find our satisfaction. 

The Bread of Life

John 6 Jesus reveals that He is the True Bread of Life!

Jesus, the Messiah

The brokenness, the barriers, and the pain that exists in the world today points to the fact that we have a worship problem. In this message, we explore how Jesus is the Messiah who breaks down the barriers of division and offers unity in one spirit and eternal satisfaction to those who believe in him.

Because of who Jesus is, we can know who God is.

Good Reason

We learn in John 1 that Jesus is the Reason for life.

I AM the WORD

The Gospel of John is a focus on who Jesus is and in this passage, John makes it clear that Jesus is the Word, the ultimate expression of God.

John reveals the true identity of Jesus.

Back from the Dead

Nearing the end of his life, Jacob has one more tragic incident–the seeming loss of his beloved son, Joseph. In the end, Jacob receives Joseph “back from the dead” and discovers God was working triumph out of tragedy. In their story, we see a foreshadowing of the greatest story–when God the Father gave up his beloved Son Jesus to die for our sins, and then to raise Him to new life on the third day.

Family Reunion

God has told Jacob to return home. But to do so, he has to face his older brother…the same brother who threatened to kill him 20 years before. The night before their encounter, Jacob “wrestles” with God and receives his blessing. His story is a reminder to all of us that what we ultimately need in this life are God’s blessing, presence, and love.

Wrestling God

In this message, we continue looking at the life of Jacob. We discover that God often blesses us as we step out in faith and step into struggle.
