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.
Welcome to the Heritage Kids Take Over service! This special service was designed to give us all a taste of what each weekend offers for the children of Heritage Church. Join us for this replay of the Take Over!
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.
Who are you? The question of identity is under siege today, with people determined to divide us into various tribes. For true followers of Christ, we have been given a new nature that leads us like a compass to aim for what is right. If actions reveal our identity, what do our actions say about us?
In this message, Pastor Carlos challenges us from 1 John 2 and 3 to live a life of love and obedience, not to gain salvation but as an appropriate response to the great love that the Father has lavished on us. Children of God live with eternity in mind, allowing us to re-frame how we see the day-to-day events of our lives.
Pastor Carlos reminds us of a lesson he learned in seminary, that a true evaluation of our understanding of theology is not measured by answering questions on a test. Rather, it's better measured by how we live each day, seeking to honor and glorify our gracious Lord.
At Heritage Church, we unapologetically follow Jesus. In Him, we find one of the most compelling figures in all of history. In this New Year's message from Luke 19, Pastor Kip unpacks how Jesus had the power to draw people to himself, no matter what they had done or who they were. In 2017, nothing is going to stop us from engaging in the same mission as Jesus.
