Personalize Service

Jesus humbled Himself and came to earth to serve the Heavenly Father. If we are to do the same, we will understand that we should be focused on fixing the eternities of people in our lives, rather than looking to what we want to do for God.

Priority Is Singular

We have a cultural misconception of priorities, but when things boil down, there will be one singular thing that we prioritize above all else. Pastor Doug challenges us to set our minds on the peace of Christ, and to dwell on the things He has done for us.

Charis

The most profound thing that we can do with the grace that has been given to us through Christ is to pass that grace to others and change their realities. We are much more effective working together than doing it on our own. Pastor Doug looks at three ingredients to successfully expressing grace. Where do you fit into this picture?

Real Places, Real People, Real Faith

Pastor Doug takes us again to the historical facts in Israel. This week, he discusses the evidence of who Jesus and Pilate were. Doug teaches that all of these things can be seen as real history, but mean nothing without faith in Jesus as the promised Messiah.

Conform Or Transform

This week, Pastor Doug teaches us that it may be easy to conform to the whims of not only the world around us, but even to the norms and traditions of church functions. Rather, we are called to allow the Holy Spirit to transform us to the perfect will of God.

Unintentional

This week, Pastor Doug takes us through the idea of raising children to have honor. We can teach children how to behave, but the behavior will not last if it is not rooted. Honor is the root that is needed to live a life to show love and respect toward others, and to love God with all that we are.

Connecting Reality With Eternity

Events throughout life naturally connect our present reality and the eternal nature of God. Looking at the intertwined lives of John the Baptist and Jesus can give us a glimpse of some of the defining moments in their relationship. How can we utilize the reality of a situation today to point us to eternity?
