Creation Matters: Image That05/17/15

  • Speaker – Greg Boyd
     
  • Topics – Creation, God's Will, Calling
  • What does it mean to be “made in the image of God?” Most people think it’s some unique attribute of being human – like our ability to speak, or to love. And while that may be part of the picture, there is much more to it. The living God breathed his life into us, brought us into his temple, and invited us to rule and reign with him by being living examples of his character and love to all creation!

Creation Matters: That, Not How05/10/15

  • Speaker – Greg Boyd
     
  • Topics – Controversial Issues, Creation, Conflict
  • In this exploration of the Genesis 1 creation story and the young earth theory of creation, Greg presents three reasons why he believes that Genesis 1 was not intended to be taken as a literal account, but rather a narrative to express important truths about who the early Jews were and who their God was. Further, whether you believe in the young earth theory or evolution or some other view, the important thing that we all can agree on is simply the fact THAT God created the world and all life - not HOW he did so.

Whole Hearted: Part 205/03/15

  • Speaker – Seth McCoy
     
  • Topics – Love, Reconciliation, Gratitude
  • In part of two of this two-part series on living wholeheartedly, Seth focused on the kind of heart that honors God. The focus of this teaching is the importance of gratitude, as noted through common myths about gratitude and possible danger of ingratitude or unspoken gratitude. We all have such a debt of love and the God-honoring way to pay back this debt is through gratitude and practical acts of love.

Whole Hearted: Part 104/26/15

  • Speaker – Seth McCoy
     
  • Topics – Kingdom of God, Spiritual Gifts
  • In part one of this two part series on living wholeheartedly, Seth shares the importance and role of the local church in building God's kingdom. The early church had a very clear vision of their role in the world. They functioned out of their Spirit given gifts to continue the growth Jesus started while on Earth. We are invited and called to live the same style of Spirit led life.

The Song of Creation04/19/15

  • Speaker – Vanessa Williams
     
  • Topics – Creation, Defense of Christian Faith, Simplicity, Creation Care
  • Many people face a “crisis of faith” when it comes to understanding the story of creation as told in Genesis 1. When read as a chronological account of events and compared to modern-day science, it’s often reduced to an angrily defended “matter of faith.”  But the creation story is not a scientific journal – it’s a beautifully poetic account of a good God and His love for us!

The Death of Death's Sting04/05/15

  • Speaker – Greg Boyd
     
  • Topics – Fear, Resurrection, Power
  • In this Easter message we delve into how the Resurrection brings freedom from the accusations of the principalities and powers through the power of self-sacrificial love. We also look at how the Resurrection brings freedom from the fear of death and our mindset of scarcity in order to live a life that is truly sacrificial. The way to get our best life is to stop trying to get our best life now, but to live out of the abundant generosity given to us through the Resurrection.
