Generous, Part 3: Let's Do This

Generosity is one of those things that needs more than inspiration and good intentions. Sporadic giving to random opportunities isn't what God has in mind for us. In this message, we’ll explore what it takes to actually excel in our giving. 

Generous Part 2: Paper Trail

According to Jesus, there's a relationship between your money and your heart that you should know about.

In this message, we explore what it is and find that it has huge implications as we seek to diagnose and to influence our current level of generosity.

 

 

Generous, Part 1: It's His

Generous people give more than they have to. We love generous people. But are we generous?

In this series, we’ll see that as God shapes us into the image of his Son, a large part of his vision is to make us generous--a quality modeled perfectly and graphically by Christ. We’ll see what it means to be generous, how to develop our generosity on purpose, and what we stand to gain as we do.

In God's House Part 3

God has opened his doors so that all might adopt his lifestyle of love, but what's this house for, anyway?Follow along as we explore Ephesians 2 in search of God's intentions for his house, from each individual brick to the structure as a whole. 

In God's House Part 2

God welcomes us into his family even when we're broken. And he expects us to do the same for others. In this message, Justin shares two stories that point to one critical truth about God's family.

In God's House, Part 1

Who's allowed in God's family? Anyone who wants to be there. God adopts us as his children and makes us heirs of the same inheritance as our new brother, Jesus Christ. The story doesn't stop there, though.

The Only Way To Win

We all want to win, but there's a certain kind of winning that's not victorious at all. Our preaching intern, Ryne, shares with us the counterintuitive way Jesus invites us to win.

Grace Works, p4: Reset

Guilt has a way of crippling us. Pile enough of it on, and we feel as though there’s no reason to try to do better--“I already failed; I might as well fail some more...” Grace, though, leads us into a much, much different reality.

Grace Works, p3: Get Up

Grace relieves us of the burden of earning God’s favor and our salvation. But it does not give us the right to be passive. To the contrary, grace teaches us to be actively righteous--a truth that seems to be lost on many religious people today.

Believer, p4: See It To Believe It

As we close this series, we’ll switch gears and turn our attention from reasons for belief to the believers themselves. Because perhaps the most compelling evidence for the claims of Christ is the change that happens in the lives of his followers.
