Without regular maintenance and attention an engine will stop working. Our faith is no different. Do you have a faith that works, Or has it become weak and no longer doing what it was meant to do in your life? In this message pastor Kip looks at principles of a faith that works. Because Belief only becomes true faith when I believe it enough to act in obedience to it.
John the Baptist was laser focused on the message of repentance, to prepare people for the Messiah. He was the announcer--the opening act, so to speak--of the ministry of Jesus. In this last message of the year, Pastor Andrew walks us through Luke 3, John 3, and Mark 9 to show how John the Baptist illustrates kingdom-minded living. John shows what it means to submit our life to Christ, that life is not about us. It's amazing what can be done in the kingdom of God when we seek first the things of God. This message is a perfect opportunity for us to reflect on priorities as we move into a new year.
We were made to exalt and to worship. But when we exalt the names of men and women, we end up settling for less than what God has for us. In this message, Pastor Kip reminds us there is no power, no name, no word greater than Jesus Christ. Kip walks us through Acts 19, where we get a glimpse at what can happen and how lives are transformed when the Power, Name, and Word of Jesus Christ is exalted over all.
The kingdom of God changes everything. A key question we all must face is this: Who is in charge? The kingdoms of nations work differently than the kingdom of God. Who do you think is in charge? And does your life reflect that belief? In this message, Pastor Austin walks us through Paul's letter to Philemon. You are invited to watch this replay and share with your friends as Austin reminds us that we are called to live differently.
It is so tempting to see wealth as our deliverer. In the moment of the trial of temptation of wealth, what do we do? Pastor Carlos points us to James 1, where we see that, in the midst of trials, we can praise God anyway out of faith--a faith that can withstand the challenges of life.

Have you ever noticed a change in your behavior when you are around certain people? Do you ever find yourself paralyzed by what someone might think about you? What if all of your striving and competitive spirit came from a heart of fear?
In this message, Pastor Carlos unpacks Galatians 1 and 2 to help us understand and address the fear of man. As Ed Welch has written, "Anything that erodes the fear of God will intensify the fear of man." When our fear makes people big, we make compromises. We too easily forget who God is, and who we are in His eyes. Pastor Carlos reminds us that culture is in the full-time spiritual formation business. The more we mature in Christ, the more we grow in our awe and reverence of God. And this allows us to need people less so we can love them more.
