XO Relationship Goals: Stay Pure

XO Relationship Goals: Stay Pure

It's rare that a person wakes up and says, "Hey, I think I'll ruin my life and marriage today!" Yet sin is a slow killer of marriages and relationships.

We continue our series about building marriages and relationships on Biblical principles with this message by Pastor Carlos on holiness and purity. Contrary to what culture may think, holiness and purity bring freedom. Pastor Carlos shares lessons from Galatians 5 to help us see the struggle is real but you can win. There is hope in the God we serve.

XO Relationship Goals: Fight Fair

XO Relationship Goals: Fight Fair

We continue our series on relationships with this message about conflict in marriage. All couples fight. Healthy couples fight fair. Healthy couples fight for resolution. Unhealthy couples fight to win. In this message, Pastor Skyler shows how God's design for mutual submission is not weakness (as our culture would suggest). Rather, in God's design for relationships, submission becomes a source of strength.

Watch this replay to be challenged that the message of your marriage should mirror the message of the Bible. We are deeply loved despite being deeply flawed. When we see how much we're forgiven, we more easily forgive those around us. At that point, it's not the absence of conflict that leads to marital success--it's the presence of humility. You'll also get some extremely practical advice based on James chapter 1 to help you better navigate the conflicts that inevitably show up on the journey of any meaningful relationship.

XO Relationship Goals: Seek God

XO Relationship Goals: Seek God

Are great marriages possible? While the answer is certainly "Yes", the odds are stacked against you. But by following the principles laid out in the Bible, you can radically improve the likelihood of a thriving marriage. In this new series, Pastor Skyler challenges us to start with Matthew 6:33. Another person will never complete you. Seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

Join us for all 5 weeks of this series as we learn God's design for healthy marriages and relationships.

Anything's Possible

Anything's Possible

If you could ask for anything, what would it be? Would it be the healing of a relationship? Or victory over an addiction or recurring struggle? What would life be like if we actually believed that the power of God was available, accessible to us on a daily basis?

In this message from the account of Abram and Sarah in Genesis 17-21, Pastor Skyler challenges us with a critically important question from Genesis 18:14: "Is anything too hard for the Lord?" How we answer that question is foundational to our walk with God. The Bible is filled with examples of the God doing the impossible. He stops the unstoppable.. He guides the misguided. The blind see. The mute talk. Storms are stilled. Dead are raised.

God's power tends not to come to people who think they're powerful, but to people who realize they are powerless. What did God tell Abram? "Walk before me, faithfully." If you want to experience the power of God, it comes when we walk faithfully and admit our inability to force it to happen. It's a movement towards holiness. Join us for this replay of the final message in our "This is Us" series. With God, anything's possible.

Everyone's Welcome

Everyone's Welcome

People matter to God. Which people? All people. How much? More than we can possibly imagine. We have a propensity to become tribal, dividing on race, politics, beliefs, and more. It's us vs. them, which begs the question: Who is "Us" from God's perspective?

A rabbi and a tax collector are about as "us vs. them" as you can get. Yet in Matthew 9, we see Jesus demonstrate how the kingdom works when he tells Matthew the tax collector to "follow me."  Matthew was only "one ask away" and it's likely that you are surrounded by many like him.

As Jesus says, "For I have not come to call the righteous, but the sinners." In this first message of our new series, Pastor Skyler reminds us that everyone is welcome. Jesus wants to transform you from your sins--He can fix that. Lord, give us a Matthew heart.

GOD IS LOVE

God is love. While this sounds elementary, this simple truth is commonly misunderstood. If we are to understand who God is and how God wants us to live, then we must begin by looking at what scripture means when it says that God is love. In this message, Pastor Austin shows us how God’s love is greater than any other kind of love we can know. When we become absorbed in God’s infinite and all-encompassing love (agape), the way we engage the world will be transformed. Join us as we take a deep look at an eternal truth.
