Ian Ross continues the series out of 1 John talking about how loving the world can rob us of our intimacy with God. He breaks down how every sin is rooted in either the desires of our eyes, the lust of our flesh or the pride of life. Ian emphasizes that the pride of life means wanting the world to embrace us, but as Christians we can't get along with the world while also living a life with zero compromise. We learn that the Word of God is our tool to fight against temptation.

Jonathan Stamper continues the series out of 1 John, focusing on how to ask for forgiveness.

Nick Brennt continues the series out of 1 John, focusing on false doctrine. He emphasizes that false teaching distorts Jesus and His message. Nick tells us that the most dangerous lies are the ones that are partly true and that the enemy has been on a pathway of distorting who God is from the beginning. He highlights that grace is not a license to sin and if grace isn't pulling us into truth then it isn't the grace of Christ. We learn that sin blocks us in our fellowship with God and that God convicts us of our sin because he wants to be close to us.

Sep 27

57 min 38 sec

Derek Mack begins a new series from 1 John about being a zealous christian, preaching this week on zeal for eternal life. Derek emphasizes that Jesus never did anything out of boredom or religious obligation, so if we are bored, we aren't dwelling on an accurate view of God. We learn that zeal keeps us from religious duty and empowers us to action. Derek defines Christianity as the experience of the life of God in your soul.

Ian Ross speaks on the topic of false teachers, not by using current examples but by looking at what the Bible has to say about it. He shares out of Matthew 12 and picks up where Brian left off in 2 Timothy. Ian emphasizes to us, what Paul emphasized to Timothy, to guard the good deposit of truth thats been entrusted to us. We are challenged to stop name calling and instead stick closely to the Word of God, preach the Bible and focus on the eternal calling of Christ Jesus.

Jul 19

47 min 43 sec

Brian Brennt dives into the book of 2 Timothy and teaches us about accepting the call on our lives.

Matt Nelson continues in the book of James speaking on faith and deeds. He focuses on what it looks like to come out of confused Christianity and into vibrant friendship with God, with the key being combining action with faith.

Jul 5

29 min 10 sec

Nick continues the series out of the book of James with a message about The Prayer of Faith.

Apr 19

45 min 9 sec

Nick Brennt continues the series Basics Build Leaders, speaking on what the Bible says about living amidst spiritual warfare. From Ephesians 6:12 we see that our enemy is not other people, rather a demonic force fueling evil. Nick highlights that Jesus' time on Earth was spent not only spreading the Gospel and manifesting the nature of God, but also declaring war on the demonic and setting people free from the grasp of the Enemy. Nick encourages us in our authority in Jesus with practical ways we can boldly advance against the kingdom of darkness and exposes how Satan tries to gain jurisdiction in our lives.

Mar 22

54 min 32 sec

Derek Mack continues the series Basics Build Leaders, focusing on prayer. We learn that Satan will try every strategy he can to keep us from praying because our effectiveness as Christians is directly related to our prayer lives.

Derek uses the Biblical example of David to show us that the people who are the most intimate with God, take the most action.

Mar 15

51 min 51 sec

Derek Mack starts a new series called Basics Build Leaders, focusing this week on discipleship. Derek emphasizes that the great sin of western christianity is calling ourselves followers of Christ but not actually following Him. We are given Biblical examples of what it means to give Jesus a hungry "Yes" instead of a passive one, and we learn that when we say "No" to Jesus it effects the salvation and eternity of others around us. We are challenged to evaluate if comfort, excuses, offense or entitlement is getting in the way of truly following Jesus.

Mar 8

46 min 14 sec

Brian Brennt preaches out of Luke 4:18. He suggests that it's time to refocus our attention on preaching the Gospel, praying for the sick and setting captives free. Brian emphasizes that we should not let a secondary mission take us away from our primary calling to love God with all our heart soul mind and strength. We are challenged to passionately pursue relationship with Jesus and to see people through a lens of love, not a lens of ministry.

Mar 1

26 min 10 sec

Michael and Yasmin Pierce address the topic of racism head on, not from a political stand point, but a biblical one. Michael speaks from the book of Revelation to show why the sin and injustice of racism is so heavy on our King's heart. He emphasizes that the culmination of the entire storyline of the Bible, everything Jesus died for, is for the voice and worship of people from every ethnicity, every tribe and tongue. Michael highlights the wealth and richness of black voices throughout the scriptures and we learn that the black man was the first to show what it means to take up his cross and follow behind Jesus. Yasmin invites us to respond and step into Jesus' solution for racism by fighting for every minority voice.

Feb 22

59 min 56 sec

Nick Brennt continues to engage us on the topic of racism. We see biblically that Jesus is the reconciler and we learn from the life of Martin Luther King that peace is not the absence of tension but the presence of justice. Nick emphasizes the need to tear down any generational patterns of white supremacy, even if its the last roots in our own hearts, as we work towards actively being an anti-racist generation. We are challenged to have the courage to humble ourselves to make things right and are given key practicals to help us move forward.
