No Fear in Love [Sermon]


1 John 4:17-21 Can you imagine a life of fearless confidence? The Apostle John wanted nothing more than his readers to think of the day they meet the Lord as a day of joy, not of judgement.

Are You Underestimating What God Can Do in Your Life? [sermon]


The Gospel of Jesus Christ acknowledges both the validity of our felt needs and the supremacy of God’s purposes. Because the Gospel is predicated on the trustworthiness of God to accomplish His ultimate good in and through us, there are times where our needs will appear to be subordinated to God’s plan.

inspiration inerrancy and authority of scripture

What is the inspiration, inerrancy, and authority of Scripture and how do they work together to help us?

Dear Christian: Stop Using the F Word, FML and WTF


Far too many young people are using the F word as a creative expression without consequence. This must stop. The F word is a vulgar word that perverts the gift of sex God has given us and uses it to express a negative feeling. Nothing about that sounds like something a Christian should be involved in. However, many Christians are  ...

Let’s Abandon the Self-help Gospel

But take heart; I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33) According to the Scientific American, elephants are truly amazing creatures because, although they have dismal eyesight, “they never forget a face.” They use their other senses to store memories...
