Throughout history the church has been marked by difference makers – people who refused to sit back. Nehemiah built the wall. David slayed Goliath. Peter dusted himself off and built the church. Jesus changed the world.
Brick by brick the church has been built on the shoulders of hardworking people. The difference makers who were willing to get their hands dirty. Ready to do whatever it takes to reach people far from God and teach them how to follow Jesus step by step. People just like you.
Are you ready to make a difference?

On the first day, Friday, Jesus died by crucifixion. Early on the third day, Sunday morning, Mary Magdalene went to find Him at the tomb. She found two angles and a person she thought was a gardener. The Gardener was Jesus. She recognized Him when He called her name. He chose to first reveal His risen Self to Mary, a woman previously demon possessed. Jesus knew, pursued, and called Mary by name. He knows, pursues, and calls you by name. Respond as Mary Magdalene did. Recognize Him when He calls you.

Life is full of uncertainty. Daily situations beyond our control put us at risk for disappointment, failure, and regret. For most of us, bravery is not about staring death in the eye, but finding courage to face the everyday pressure and anxieties life throws our way. In this series, we’ll discover how to be brave and what it means to fully rely on God’s peace and promises in every situation.

The story in Genesis chapter 15 of how God made a covenant with Abram (Abraham) is much more than just an inspirational story from the Old Testament. Like all biblical stories, it points to the ultimate promise that God has made with humanity through Jesus Christ. Abram isn’t sure that he can trust God, or that God can trust him — and we all can feel that way sometimes about God and ourselves. But God shows Abram and all of us that He is trustworthy. When we trust God, we’ll experience the blessings of obedience. When we fail to trust God or obey Him, we’ll suffer the consequences of sin, but there’s good news: God will be faithful to us even when we’re unfaithful to Him. We can always count on God to keep His promises.

Jesus - Week 1 Audio - True and Better


The Old Testament is not a series of disconnected stories. It is a single narrative that points to one person – Jesus. He is the true and better Adam, the true and better Abraham, the true and better Isaac, the true and better Moses, the true and better David. Jesus is the true Passover Lamb, the true Temple, the true Prophet, the true King.

Jesus - Week 2 Audio - The Son of Man


The designation of Jesus as the “Son of Man” is the radical claim that this carpenter’s son is actually the long awaited Messiah. It is impossible to really understand the ministry and message of Jesus outside of this context. It’s what brings to fulfillment the promises of God in the Old Testament and connects the old covenant to the new in one seamless narrative.

Jesus - Week 3 Audio - The Son of God


When John declares that the “Word became flesh” he is reminding us that, in the incarnation, God fully entered into the brokenness of this world. God is not distant and removed from this world. God has come near. He has experienced our pain, our temptations, the disappointment of friends who let us down. The story of Jesus is the story of God.

Jesus - Week 4 Audio - The Cross


It is no coincidence that Jesus instituted the Lord’s Supper in the midst of a Passover meal. Jesus is the true Lamb. On the cross he entered into our death so that we could enter into his life. He entered into our pain so that we could enter into his joy. He entered into our sin so that we could enter into his holiness. He entered into our brokenness so that we could enter into his hope.

Jesus - Week 5 Audio - The Church


The message of scripture is not really that God’s church has a mission. Rather it is that God’s mission has a church. The church is the vehicle God has chosen to carry out his redeeming, restoring mission in this world. We have been invited in. Not just for ourselves, but for a world that is broken and in need of rescue.

Jesus - Week 6 Audio - The Consummation


The call of Jesus is a call to overcome. To overcome all of the powers that stand in opposition to God’s reign, God’s kingdom. Responding to this call is not always easy. It can lead to being maligned and mistreated. It can even lead to death. But Revelation is the reminder that death is not the same as defeat. Revelation challenges our imagination and helps us see our situation (and all of history) from God’s perspective.

In this four-week series, Pastor Craig Groeschel takes a different approach to how we look at Jesus. Rather than being the one with all the answers, Jesus is sometimes the one who asks us questions–questions that force us to decide what we really believe. In The Counselor, Jesus asks “Why are you so afraid,” “Do you believe I can do this,” “Do you want to get well,” and “Why do you doubt?”

The resurrection of Jesus is not an isolated story. It is the culminating event of a narrative that runs from Genesis to Revelation. The resurrection means the death of Jesus Christ was not the end of the story, but the opportunity for a new beginning. The resurrection means that, in Christ, there is always hope. Read more

Family is a gift. But navigating the challenges of family life is not always easy. Sometimes things get buried. Pain gets buried. Dreams get buried. Destructive behaviors get buried. The hope is that if we ignore the issues they will go away. That rarely happens. Instead, issues build to the point that people either give up or walk away. Often those same issues are then passed on to the next generation.

Daily life usually sets us on a path that’s almost robotic, and we forget to see God in all things – the good, the tragic, or even the mundane. Think of your day today. Did you see Him in your kids’ laughter, the homeless person on the corner, or even the papers you stapled? He was there. Join us as we discover how to see God in everything.

The Third Day. It represents hope. It means that our present circumstances do not have to limit our future. It means that change is possible. The Bible proclaims that Jesus rose from the grave on the third day. That ancient text is a reminder that nothing is more powerful than God – not sin, not our past, not even death itself. Because of The Third Day, we can move from darkness into God’s marvelous light. Join us April 7 & 8 for our Easter Services and experience the power of The Third Day in your own life.
