We are now in week 4 of Pursuing Christ, which I mentioned last week is not a message series but a quest – a quest to know the one who saved us in a deeper and more intimate way. It’s about abiding in the vine, fixing our eyes on Jesus, learning what he’s like, what he loves, what he hates, … Read More

And So It Begins…(John 2)

Let’s begin with prayer… In your groups this past week you should have discussed a bit of John chapter 1 and a few other verses about the importance of knowing Jesus intimately. I hope it was a fruitful discussion. I titled today’s talk “And So It Begins” both because today we begin looking intently at Jesus to learn his ways … Read More

Now, I recognize there are probably still some lingering questions about how we are doing groups this time. And I know there are also even bigger questions than that out there.

In light of my recent lessons learned, God has continued pulling back the curtain and revealing some things to me about the direction I’ve taken the church since December of last year. Not that it’s been all wrong – but he’s shown me what caused me to jump on the shiny object called the BRTFAC. Basically I lost focus on … Read More

The Impossible Christian Life

For the past nine months we have been getting some pretty deep theological teaching, such that even my brain is hurting from all of the thinking! And last week I’m sure I made it hurt even more by presenting the huge changes that God has placed on my heart for this church in the near and distant future. If you … Read More

In Matthew 16, when Peter made his confession of faith that Jesus was indeed the Messiah, the Son of the Living God – Jesus responded that upon that PETRA – that immovable rock – He would establish his Church – His Ecclesia – and that not even Hell itself or anyone who comes from there would be able to defeat … Read More

Last week I covered the final battle between Satan and God – with God winning a quick and decisive victory that ended with Satan and all those he deceived though the centuries being thrown into the Lake of Fire. But for all those who, by the grace of God, are saved through their faith and allegiance to God as King, now … Read More
