Walking in the Light07/24/16

  • Speaker – Kendra Diehl
     
  • Topics – Holy Spirit, Judgment, Sin
  • In this fourth message of the God in Us series we explore what it means that the light of the world has taken up residence in us. Throughout scripture we see the theme of darkness and light battling back and forth. In Genesis we read of the Spirit hovering over the darkness and bringing order to the chaos, light to the darkness. In the gospel of John, Jesus calls himself the light of the world, and promises his followers will have the Holy Spirit in them if he goes away. So what does it mean to have the light of the world living inside us?

A New Mind07/17/16

  • Speaker – Seth McCoy
     
  • Topics – Holy Spirit, Hope, Transformation
  • God makes amazing promises over the kind of life we can live through the power of the Holy Spirit. This power will flow out of us like a river of living water. But we frequently experience a distance between the kind of full life that God promised and the kind of life we live now, don’t we? So how can the distance of this gap begin to close? Paul tells us, one of the key ways in which we can do this is through the practice of being transformed by the renewing of our mind. The primary place in which The Holy Spirit meets with us is in our minds, and we, through the power of the Spirit, can choose our thoughts, we can set our minds on things that are above.

Who Is The Spirit?07/03/16

  • Speaker – Greg Boyd
     
  • Topics – Holy Spirit, Trinity, Imagination
  • This second sermon in our God in Us series focused on the broad question of, “Who is the Spirit?”  This message focuses on three characteristics of the Holy Spirit: The Holy Spirit is God, The Holy Spirit is personal and the Holy Spirit is distinct in nature.  Greg emphasized that the main role of the Spirit is to show us clearly the person of Jesus and help us to recognize God when we would have no other way of recognizing Him.  The Holy Spirit is working to remove the veil in our mind and can do this through our imagination.

Tearing Down The Tower06/19/16

  • Speakers – Greg Boyd, Paul Eddy
     
  • Topics – Community, Kingdom of God, Reconciliation
  • In this, the final part of the Flesh & Blood series, we examine how racial reconciliation is a vital part of the gospel message. To be a Jesus-follower is to be one who seeks peace-making and is always striving towards reconciliation.  We discover that we are only able to achieve reconciliation to the degree that we are willing to learn about perspectives that differ from our own.

Life Without Walls06/12/16

  • Speaker – Seth McCoy
     
  • Topics – Forgiveness, Relationships, Conflict
  • In this, the third message in our Flesh and Blood series, we focus on Jacob's story in Genesis. His story is a great illustration of how we build walls inside ourselves, and it brings to light who we are really protecting ourselves from.
