Where did the Bible come from, anyway? How do we know it wasn’t put together by the Catholic Church in the Middle Ages?” And why do Christians believe it’s not only reliable, but inspired by God?
Millions of Christians believe that the God described in the Bible exists. But why? In this message, we’ll examine evidence of the existence of God and respond to a couple of common objections raised by atheists.
Who was Jesus, really? Did he actually live? And if so, why do Christians believe he was anything more than an effective teacher of moral wisdom? In this message, we’ll examine why it’s not crazy to believe that Jesus did, in fact, rise from the dead.
Christ calls us to be bold, to take risks, and to share his love and truth with others. That directive lies at the heart of our identity as a church.
Sacrificing now for something we won’t enjoy until later is hard. But not doing that, it turns out, is even harder.
“You just don’t understand, because no one else has been where I am." That sounds true...but it’s largely false. In this message, we’ll talk about why your story isn’t unique and how thinking that it is can often lead to three destructive illusions.
Your friends won't tell you, but Heavenly Father wants you to know: jealousy is killing you. Here's why and what to do about it.
It's a cruel irony, isn't it? The more we focus on ourselves, the less happy we become. That's why, to avoid a lifetime of unhappiness, we need to embrace four very important words.
Everybody wants to know God's plan for them. And most every parent would like to know God's plan for their kids. In this message, we let Moses tell us exactly what that plan is--hint: if you're a parent, it involves you.
If wisdom enables us to make great decisions, develop healthy practices and relationships, and create a legacy of true success (and it does)...and if God promises to give us wisdom if we ask for it (and He does)...then why in the world would we not ask for it regularly?
Here's the bad news: life is a spiritual war, and you don’t have what it takes to survive on your own. The good news? God will give you the rescue you so desperately need. If you want His help, though, there's one thing you'll have to do.
When it comes to living the way God wants, there's a secret weapon available to the Christian that we'd be crazy not to take advantage of. In this message, we'll explore a prayer that has the power to transform us like nothing else.
How often do you tell God, "Thank You"? And when you do, do still do it like a toddler? In this message, we'll explore why prayers of gratitude are so powerful and how to pray them more effectively.
If there’s one thing our prayer lives tend to be pretty short on, it’s praise. We’re not sure how to do it, and we’re not sure why God needs it in the first place. But the prayer of “Wow” holds great power.
January is a great time for new starts. We look back, look ahead, and find clarity to make changes that need to be made. New Year's is helpful that way.
But it won't be New Year's for long.
So what can you do to make sure you get a new start when you need it?
Could God really use you? Are you really worth using? That, it turns out, is the wrong question to ask. In this message, Mitch East challenges us with the example of Jesus' cousin, John--his worthiness wasn't the key as much as his willingness was.
Have you ever yearned for something Good, something that seems just out of reach (or way beyond reach)? Christmas is a time when, along with Mary, we're reminded by the angel Gabriel that nothing is impossible with God.
Sometimes life is hard. But that doesn't mean God isn't keeping his promises.
Garrett East grew up at RRCOC and now lives with his wife and kids in Tanzania, sharing Christ with the people there. In this message, he shares the story of a difficult first 6 months in Africa followed by an amazing year and a half. Truly, God is faithful.
The eldest (and beardless) brother of the Duck Dynasty group openly and honestly shares his family's story with RRCOC. It wasn't always as good as it is now.
Here's something you'll need for the battle against fear that you may not have thought of: Self-control.
This sermon is about why that's true and what to do about it.
