Everyone of us lives our lives with elementary principles...basic building blocks of belief. These elementary principles shape our behaviors, values, and worldview. When we receive Christ these basic building blocks are revealed to be empty and inadequate to live the Christian life. Walking with Christ requires that our elementary principles are reshaped by the fullness…

Supernatural: He Can Do Anything (Matthew 14:13-21)

Publish on
When Jesus fed the 5000 he demonstrated that he was Supernatural. We learn that "he can do anything" as he provides food and trains his disciples. It all points to the greatest miracle that Jesus supernaturally does.

Maturity Is the Goal (Colossians 2:1-5)

Publish on
Too often we think the start line of the Christian life is the finish line. We think, "If only people MEET Jesus, my work is done." Meeting Jesus is an important start, but God is most glorified when the finished line is reached...becoming MATURE in Christ.

Work for Christ – Servants of the Gospel (Colossians 1:24-29)

Making Peace with God (Colossians 1:21-23)

Peace. It slips out of our hands regularly and conflict ignites. Once lost, it is so difficult to find. What if there was a finished and lasting peace?

Finding Motivation to Please God (Colossians 1:12-14)

Publish on
Do you want to please God? If we are honest, the answer is 'sometimes.' So how do we grow in this desire? How do we convince our hearts to pursue the things that please God? Remembering God's saving work produces gratitude that motivates walking worthy of the One who is Greater Than.

Unceasing Prayer (Colossians 1:9-14)

Publish on
Unceasing Prayer is one of our 4 Pillars (hyperlink to our website) that express our church's values. Nothing is more basic to the Christian life than prayer. But many of us have not been taught how to pray. The result is often praying for small or selfish things that stifle our desire to pray. But…

Gospel-Powered Life (Colossians 1:5-8)

Publish on
In a different letter, Paul explains that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is the power of God (Romans 1:16). Are you living in the power of the gospel? Unfortunately, we remember that the gospel has the power to save us but then forget that it is also the power to live the Christian life. Come…

Greater Than (Colossians 1:1-5)

Publish on
Often when we sing, "Christ is enough for me" I find myself wondering if I really believe this. If all I had was Christ, would that be enough? If I didn't mix my trust in Christ with anything else, and it was really true that "Christ + nothing = everything," would I be satisfied and…
