06.25.2017 – When God Says Wait

Americans are people of action, aren’t we? So we love it when God gives us marching orders to “go” and “do.” But what about when God says, “Wait?” What do we do when God presses the pause button? Well, that is exactly what happened in Acts 1 between the Ascension of Jesus and the Day of Pentecost. Jesus told His followers to “wait.” But as they waited, they didn’t sit around and do nothing. Instead they pressed into three critical areas that prepared them for what was right around the corner. And we need to learn from them and do the same!

06.11.2017 – Baptized with the Holy Spirit

This week, we looked at one of the most overlooked aspects of Jesus’ ministry – how he described in all 4 gospels baptizing people with the Holy Spirit (Matt. 3:11, Mark 1:8, Luke 3:16, John 1:33). Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John weren’t wasting ink by mentioning it in each gospel. It’s in all 4 gospels to emphasize its importance, one we often miss in the American church. So just what is the baptism of the Holy Spirit… and why does it matter? Find out in this week’s sermon!

06.04.2017 – Acts 29

The book of Acts is 28 chapters long and ends kind of like a TV program that wraps up with the words “To Be Continued…” But why does Acts end this important biography of the early church the way it does? Because we are all called by God to “write” the next chapter! This week, we began an all-new series called “Acts 29” where we are going to dig deep into the book of Acts and read it – not just as a history book of what God did “back then” – but what God wants to do again in our day!

05.14.2017 – Did Jesus Really Say THAT to a Mom?

In our Mother’s Day service, we looked at one of the most controversial (and misunderstood) things Jesus ever said. A mom came to Jesus asking Him to heal her daughter. And Jesus replied by calling her a “dog” (see Matthew 15:21-28). What did Jesus mean when He said that? Was it an insult? Or, is there more going on than meets the eye?

05.07.2017 – I Was Blind But Now I See

“Bold prayers honor God, and God honors bold prayers. God isn’t offended by your biggest dreams or boldest prayers. He is offended by anything less. If your prayers aren’t impossible for you, they are insulting to God. Why? Because they don’t require divine intervention. But ask God to part the Red Sea… and God is moved to omnipotent action.”

The above quotation is from Mark Batteron’s book The Circle Maker and it’s a great “sneak preview” of where we headed in this week’s sermon. The title is from the classic hymn Amazing Grace, but the words contain mountain-moving spiritual truths that are hidden in plain sight!

04.23.2017 – The Spirit of Prophecy

The Bible is not just a history book of what God did “back then.” It’s a book of what God wants to do in our day. And that’s what we want for our church…to read stories in the Scriptures about miracles and healings and being transformed by the love of Father God and crying out, “Do it again, Lord!” And for mountains to move as a result! And that is what our new series called “The Spirit of Prophecy” is all about! We’d love for you to watch\listen to this week’s sermon as we kick it off!
