The Ways of Jesus Pt 1 - Introduction

July 15th, 2018

We often think about the words and works of Jesus, but rarely about His ways. But as we learn His ways, we discover the very heart of God. And while His ways are always good, they are nothing like our ways; while they lead to a hope-filled future, they are often filled with challenges we wouldn't choose on our own.

These good-but-challenging ways of Jesus are now being seen in the lives of our associate pastors, Joel and Veronica Arreola. Listen to their story, allow their faith to stretch your own, and join with us in partnering with them in their next seasons of ministry.

In the Beginning Pt 12 - Dealing with Trouble

June 10th, 2018

In the Beginning Pt 11 - Set Free

June 6th, 2018

When Moses showed up in Egypt to set God's people free, their liberation didn't happen immediately. The Israelites had to learn to trust God for their freedom as they watched Him work on their behalf. In this story we find encouragement for our own struggles and learn the power of taking our families with us into freedom.

In the Beginning Pt 10 - Moses

May 27th, 2018

The story of Exodus is one of God's intervention to bring freedom to those trapped in captivity and oppression. And as Moses learned, God's revelation is always intended to bring our liberation. But before he could lead others to freedom, he needed to become free himself. And it all happened at a bush on fire.
