Faith Heroes: Ordinary People that God Used in Extraordinary Ways

The Bible is filled with great men and women of the faith. As we examine these faith heroes we will see how God used them mightily and how will use us too. All of these heroes point to Jesus who is the champion that initiates and perfects our faith. We too can be faith heroes as we devote our lives to Christ.

Samuel: An Obedient Faith

April 24, 2016 | 1 Samuel 15:22-23 | character study, faith

In the book of 1 Samuel, we see in Samuel’s life how God cares about the condition of our heart and the object of our obedience.

What Easter Really Means

For many of us, Easter means things like Spring Break, trips to see family, and traditions like egg hunts and candy. These are all fine things, but Easter really means Hope, Life, and Joy.

Easter Means…Joy

April 10, 2016 | 1 Peter 1:3,6-9 | easter, gospel

In the apostle Peter’s first letter, he tells believers in Asia Minor that they can have wonderful joy in every situation because of the resurrection of Jesus. We too can have this wonderful joy because God raised Jesus from the dead. Our text today gives us three ways to have wonderful joy through the resurrection of Jesus.

Easter Means…Life

April 3, 2016 | John 11:17-44 | easter, gospel

Are you feeling a sense of having no purpose, like life just has little meaning right now? Are you feeling grief from a loss, perhaps the loss of a family member or the loss of a relationship? Is life just feeling too brief or too mundane? We need to hear that there is something more eternal and more abundant. In the gospel of John, Christ called Martha to believe that He was the resurrection and the life. We can receive the resurrection life of Christ by believing in Him.
