How can we say that Jesus is the only way to God? Isn’t that arrogant and intolerant? Isn’t that narrow-minded? Let’s honestly examine the problem of religious exclusivity, and see how the gospel’s response to the problem compares with popular culture’s response to the problem.
We started a sermon series answering common questions submitted by YOU! The first and most asked question was: What will Heaven be like? Let’s dig into Revelation to see what the Bible has to say about this fascinating topic!
At our Dunk & Roast service, Pastor Andy spoke on prayer, sharing four prayers that have changed his life. May these prayers bless you as well!
How do we seize the God-given opportunities to share Jesus with others? Looking at Acts 8:26-40, we learn some very practical tips from the story of Philip and the Ethiopian Eunuch.
Napoleon Bonaparte said, "Great ambition is the passion of a great character. Those endowed with it may perform very good or very bad deeds. It all depends on the principles that direct them.” What are the principles that drive our ambitions? In Acts 8:1-25, we see three very ambitious people, with three very different outcomes of their ambition.

As a movement, Christianity has been unstoppable the past 2,000 years. But, its beginning goes back further than the Book of Acts. Our faith actually began about 4,000 years ago with a promise God made to a man named Abram. This is that story.

What should we do when we’re faced with a challenge or problem in life that threatens our ability to follow Jesus? Acts 4:23-31 shows us what the first Christians did when they experienced this, and we can learn from their example how to pray Kingdom-prayers and have the victory.
How do you know if you’re growing as a disciple, or making any progress following Jesus? Galatians 5:22-23 teaches us that the fruit of the Spirit is a sign of life and growth as a follower of Jesus.
A disciple is someone who is actually following Jesus. Discipleship happens when the Spirit applies the Word to our lives in the context of the church to help us follow in Jesus’ footsteps. In this message, we dig into the context of the church and discover that discipleship happens in three places: a gathered place, a scattered place, and a close place.
Every plant needs water, soil, and sunlight to grow, even though every plant grows differently. In the same way, every disciple experiences spiritual growth differently, and yet we all need three essential ingredients to continue growing spiritually.
What is a disciple? How do we live as disciples of Jesus? We turn to Matthew 4:18-22 and take our cues from Jesus.
Why do we celebrate Easter? What is the significance of the resurrection? Does it really matter that Jesus lives? These are the questions the Bible answers in our Easter celebration worship service.
What is Palm Sunday and why do we celebrate it? What’s the deal with the palm leaves? Christians do weird things, and playing with leaves in church is one of them. But, as we’ll see, it has great significance for life both now and in the future.
What is a “normal” Christian life? We turn to Acts 2:42-47 to see what normal life was like for the very first Christians. How “normal” is your life as a follower of Jesus?

Acts 2:1-13 records a turning point in human history: the day on which God the Holy Spirit was poured out on all followers of Jesus. We’ll see what some of the practical implications of this incredible event are for us today.
