Catalyst of Faith

Everything in life requires an element of faith. From bungy jumping off a bridge to driving to work. It is either a lot or a little, but never absent. If we are going to thrive as God’s people, faith in an ever-increasing measure is essential. How do we increase our faith? What is the catalyst to greater faith? Knowing God. This week we get to know Rahab, an…

Finding Strength for the Journey

If you’ve ever found yourself in survival mode emotionally or spiritually, you know how helpless you can feel. As we begin a new study on the book of Joshua in Joshua 1 this Sunday, we begin a journey on the pathway to victorious Christian living.

It’s my prayer that we will help demystify the confusion of what it means to live in the Spirit and to keep in step with him. I consider this concept to be one of the most fundamental and most…

Recovery

We’ve all seen the “funny” videos of people getting tripped up. I guess it’s funny if nothing more happens, but you can really get hurt with a bad fall. We don’t just stumble physically, we trip spiritually due to some teaching, situation, or person. All of a sudden we are out of sync with God and with believers and others around us. Sunday…

What Changed Everything

(Click on “Save” above to download this week’s sermon notes.) Three great elements come together to make this a Sunday you won’t want to miss. In the first element we see What Changed Everything in a great passage in Galatians 4:1-7 that shows us where our grace alone journey all began and what difference it makes in both our eternal and everyday…
