Covenant King

God’s Old Testament covenants teach us about a New Testament King.

 

Promise Keeper

Mankind has fallen, but God has not abandoned them. Instead, throughout the entire history of the Old Testament God makes promises (covenants) to his people. From Noah to Abraham, and Moses to David, God promises to bless and restore. And all of those promises find their ultimate fulfillment in Jesus.

Trouble in Paradise

Genesis teaches us about the foundation of Christmas.

The Problem

Christmas reminds us that Jesus was never God’s ‘plan B’. God always intended to save a people to himself through his Son. In this message, we study Ephesians 1 and learn that God chose us in Christ before the foundation of the world…so that he might redeem and forgive and adopt us as his own!

Paradise Lost

A Matter of Life and Death

Moses is about to die. For 40 years, Moses has led an ungrateful, unfaithful people through the wilderness.

Strength in Promises

When you read or hear God’s promises, do you believe them? In this message, we see the Israelites sending spies into the land of Canaan.

We Need Each Other
