Taking Care of Business

Jesus teaches us how to use work to bring God glory.

Look to Jesus

Do you have a next step in your relationship with Jesus? If so, what is it? The truth is, we all have a next step, but sometimes struggle to know what it is or how to take it. In this message, we study Hebrews 12 and discover some ways that we can identify and take our next step in our relationship with Jesus.mount

Lazarus Returns

Can you still trust God, even when you don’t understand what is happening or why? In this message, we return to the story of Lazarus once again to see how God works in all things for his glory and, at the same time, for the good and joy of his children.

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.

The Promise of Easter

In this Easter message, we look at the end of the Gospel of Luke. We are reminded that Jesus’ death and resurrection has made a way for us to be forgiven and to receive the promise of the Father!

In Control

We try so hard to be in control. Deeply rooted in who we are is a desire to fix ourselves, protect ourselves, and ultimately save ourselves. We never have full control of our lives and though we like to pretend we can fix ourselves we end up being really bad at doing so. Today, we will look at 3 verses from the book of Luke that helps us recognize who is in control and how we should respond to it. It is by losing control that we can truly live.

How to Run on Endurance

This message looks into the mindset of Christ, who faced powerful opposition, but endured and secured victory over life’s obstacles. Issues discussed are challenges like ‘instant gratification,’ and ‘people pleasing.’

The Thrill Of Hope

We have all experienced hopeless situations. Moments when an object, relationship or situation is beyond repair. We don’t often think about our hopeless condition, when we were separated from Christ, but that is exactly what Paul encourages the Ephesians to do. The remembering of our hopeless state leads to rejoicing in our hopeful state in Christ. Oh the thrill of hope!

Near, Far, Wherever You Are

In Luke 5:27-32 we see that no one is too far to be reached by the truth of the gospel of Jesus.

Christmas Isn’t Over

The end of December is often filled with New Year’s Resoultions that promise a better future as long as you possess the will power to achieve it. Jeremiah instucts us how we can better orient our lives to the promises of God and invest in a more fruitful future for ourselves.

Positioned to Pursue

Believers and non-believers alike can both become exhausted from seeking the approval of God. Today’s message is intended to alleviate the wandering, to slow the pendulum swing and to set a course of setting our minds on and seeking the things that are above. The gospel message not only redeems us, but when studied and applied grows us into the image of Jesus Christ. Find rest for your soul from the words of Paul to the Colossians. Here he reminds us of the gospel message and informs believers they have been positioned to pursue.
