A Gospel Perspective for Life’s Trials

In this sermon on James 1:2–6, Pastor Daniel preaches about the believer’s hope in the midst of trials. Suffering in this life is real, but when we see our suffering with the lenses God gives us, we realize that God provides for us in our trials—not only with a purpose, but with his very presence.

A Gospel Perspective for Life’s Trials

The One With the Prostitute, the Pharisee, and Jesus

As we continue our “In Step” series through the book of Luke, Pastor J.D. teaches about the scandal of grace. Grace offends most people, particularly religious people. We are hard-wired to think that our worth is a result of what we do. Do good things, get good outcomes. Do bad things, get bad outcomes. Grace throws this whole system aside. And thank God it does, because without the scandal of grace, none of us would have any hope.

Live Ready

As we continue our “In Step” series through the book of Luke, Pastor J.D. teaches what it means to “live ready” for Jesus’ return. Are we awake to the task Jesus left for his church, or are we asleep at the wheel? Are we confident Jesus will return soon, or do we live without urgency? As followers of Jesus, we should live in such a way that only makes sense if we believe Jesus could be back at any moment.

Be on Guard Against Greed

As we continue our “In Step” series through the book of Luke, Pastor J.D. preaches about a sickness that most of us have, but few of us realize—the sickness of greed. Part of what makes greed so deadly is our inherent blindness to it. Jesus simply assumes that greed is a problem for all of us! But he also offers us a radical, gospel-shaped antidote.

Be on Guard Against Greed

Feet on the Rock

As we begin our “In Step” series through the book of Luke, Pastor J.D. dives into one of Jesus’ most recognized parables. It’s a story about two men who built identical houses—with tragically different results. The only difference? Their foundation. In these times of uncertainty, as our very lives seem shaken, it’s a perfect time to make sure our lives are built on a foundation that will endure.

Feet on the Rock

E Pluribus Unum

In this final message in our “Flags” series, Pastor Bryan preaches about unity in the body of Christ. It’s a sad fact that for many followers of Jesus, we have allowed MSNBC, Fox News, and CNN to disciple us more than Jesus. As political division and polarization increase, God calls our church to a different reality. The way forward is to remember that however divided we may be politically, in Christ, we are all on the same team.

Rest Rehab: ACT

In this message on Matthew 11:28–30, Pastor Curtis offers a welcome word to a weary world: “Rest.” We live our lives at a frenzied pace—addicted to technology, disconnected from others, struggling with anxiety and depression. We’re soul tired. But ironically enough, admitting we’re tired is the first step on the road to recovery. Are you ready for an intervention?

Four Myths Americans Believe About Politics

In this second message of our “Flags” series, Pastor J.D. explores several myths that are common in our approach to politics, both outside and inside the church. By focusing instead on Jesus’ revolutionary claim to Pilate in John 18, we’ll see that Jesus’ kingdom puts every other earthly kingdom—and political party—into stark perspective. It is a perspective that can transform cynicism and despair into hope and urgency.

Four Myths Americans Believe About Politics

Liberty, Justice, and Love for All

In this first message of our “Flags” series, Pastor J.D. shows us that the hope of the gospel unites the most unlikely of people from all tribes, tongues, nations ... and even political parties. As members of Christ's eternal kingdom, we can declare that even in moments of great division, Jesus retains the power to heal, restore, and offer an eternal hope.

Row The Boat: The Dawning of a New Day

In this message on 1 Samuel 14, Pastor Jason encourages us to take the posture of Jonathan. A prince in the nation of Israel, Jonathan didn’t lean on his power, position, or potential. He leaned on the promises of God, even when—especially when—the road ahead was unknown. Through Jonathan, we’ll learn that in the economy of the Kingdom of God, an investment in personal strength is an investment in a crashing market.
