I See Fire02/08/15

  • Speaker – Jeremy Jernigan
     
  • Topics – Discipleship, Pain & Suffering, Sacrifice
  • Jeremy discusses other-centeredness and how our worldly definition of success differs from the Kingdom definition. He starts by examining the moment of clarity that we get when we "see fire," or when emergencies arise - do we put on our own oxygen mask first, or do we take care of those around us first, at our own possible peril? The world (and airline safety speeches) tell us to take care of ourselves first, and only after that to worry about those around you. But Jesus tells us something different.

  • Topics – Defense of Christian Faith, Evangelism, Relationships

Going to Hell (In a Nutshell)03/01/15

  • Speaker – Greg Boyd
     
  • Topics – Hell, Judgment, Salvation
  • In this week's theological meat-and-potatoes sermon on Hell and Salvation, Greg explores the fallacy of relativism, the singular truth of Jesus as the light of and way to the father, and whether this means that those who do not believe in him are doomed to an eternity of suffering in Hell.

Generic God03/08/15

  • Speakers – Greg Boyd, Seth McCoy
     
  • Topics – Healing, Kingdom of God, Salvation
  • In this fourth installment of the Mixed Signals series, we explore how humans have historically given God, or the gods, attributes we ourselves have desired. In our present day this trend has manifested itself in a very generic, distant, tolerant, and civil picture of God. God is viewed as an ambiguous force defined by His power, and viewed as merely a giver of moral guidance wanting us all to get along. Greg and Seth expose how this misguided picture of God has led to a large population of Christians still viewing themselves as Lord of their own life.

You Are Not The Tree03/15/15

  • Speaker – Greg Boyd
     
  • Topics – Controversial Issues, Defense of Christian Faith, Evangelism
  • In this fifth installment of Mixed Signals, we explore the Gnostics belief of the church in Colossae and how those relate to the New Spirituality movements rooted in Eastern thought of our day.  We explore the biblical perspectives on pantheism, interacting with spirits and reincarnation and ultimately see how finding enlightenment in anything or anyone other than Jesus is deceptive and misses out on the loving character of God.

A Without God Life03/22/15

  • Speaker – Seth McCoy
     
  • Topics – Defense of Christian Faith, Evangelism, Problem of Evil
  • Atheism, which means “without God”, makes a lot of sense – if your understanding of God also omits the reality of Satan, because then God appears to be the only one to blame.  But when Satan is held accountable for his ruthless reign, and God is understood to look like Jesus, a life “without God” makes no sense.

  • Speaker – Greg Boyd
     
  • Topics – Controversial Issues, Non-Violence, Conflict
  • In the last message of Mixed Signals, we take a look at Islam and how Kingdom people should be responding to the growing worldwide Islamic movement. We explore the growing disparity between the life Jesus led and calls us into and the normal worldly response to those who are different or potentially threaten our way of life.

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.

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!

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.

  • 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.

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.

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: En Garde05/24/15

  • Speaker – Greg Boyd
     
  • Topics – Creation, Problem of Evil
  • The Bible can seem to conflict itself depending on how it’s being interpreted, but what if the conflict isn’t with the Bible at all?  For example, the story of creation often results in conflicting views and beliefs among people.  But what if the conflict isn’t with the story itself, and is instead found in what lies behind the story – the very conflict we are to be standing with God against?

Twisted Scripture: Matthew 7:705/31/15

  • Speaker – Seth McCoy
     
  • Topics – Discipleship, Kingdom of God, Prayer
  • Seth McCoy begins our Twisted Scripture series by discussing the topic of prayer by focusing on Matthew 7:7-11. This passage has a tendency to be misrepresented by our own cultural contexts that can distort the language of this passage into an individualistic prosperity gospel. It was argued that the ultimate goal of prayer is to ask, seek and knock in order to find the beauty of a life lived in submission to God and for the purpose of advancing the Kingdom of God.

Twisted Scripture: Proverbs06/07/15

  • Speaker – Shawna Boren
     
  • Topics – Kingdom of God, Free Will
  • In part two of the Twisted Scripture series, Shawna explores the uses and misuses of a couple common Old Testament Proverbs. Often times in the Christian culture of the 21st century we see the book of Proverbs as a collection of nice sayings or one liners to guide our day. When we oversimplify the Proverbs they can often times come across very formulaic. We miss the cultural context they were written in and the oral tradition of wisdom they were meant to pass down to the next generation.

  • Speaker – Greg Boyd
     
  • Topics – Controversial Issues, Politics, Nationalism
  • Most evangelicals believe that God said the nation of Israel will exist forever, therefore its national and political boundaries must be fully restored before Jesus returns. But what if the “Israel” that the Bible refers to in this context is not a specific nation with geographical boundaries, but all who are the people of God?

  • Today Brianna explores the concept of forgiveness that is so central to the Kingdom. Is it a condition of God's forgiveness of us? Or is his forgiveness unconditional no matter what? And if his love is unconditional, does that mean it doesn't matter whether we forgive others or not?

Twisted Scripture: Genesis 6:1-707/19/15

  • Speaker – Greg Boyd
     
  • Topics – Controversial Issues, Identity in Christ, Temptation
  • Greg Boyd finishes our Twisted Scripture series by delving into the passage in Genesis 6:1-7 on the issue of the Nephilim. This controversial passage deals with the creation of hybrid beings, the Nephilim, that are the offspring of fallen angels and daughters of humans. This passage has led to many distracting theories and conspiracies that have served to move us away from the tasks of the Kingdom of God. Our job, as Kingdom people, is to stay vigilant to all the ways the principalities and powers of this fallen world are constantly trying to spiritual engineer the Kingdom and our identity in Christ out of this world.  We need to fix our eyes on Jesus and be careful of this temptation to slowly lose our Kingdom calling.

  • Speaker – Seth McCoy
     
  • Topics – Baptism, Forgiveness, Kingdom of God
  • The upcoming Mixed Tape series will be a collection of scripture passages that have moved and inspired the body of Christ over the centuries. In this first message of the series, Seth takes a look at Colossians 3:1-14 and what it means to get our life from being hidden in Christ. We also take a look at our role of choosing to die to the old way of living and not letting it pollute our current reality.

  • Speaker – Greg Boyd
     
  • Topics – Holy Spirit, Trinity, Transformation
  • Early Church fathers said that every movement of God toward us begins with the Father, comes through the Son, and is accomplished in the Holy Spirit, while every genuine movement of humans toward God originates in the Holy Spirit, and goes through the Son to the Father. So if God’s movement toward us is accomplished in the Holy Spirit, and if our genuine moves toward God originate in the Holy Spirit, then we need this Spirit! Today we learn more about the Holy Spirit, and why Jesus left the earth so the Holy Spirit could come and fill it – and us – with God’s love!

  • In this third installment of the mixed tape series, Greg shares his experience in growing in a non-violent world view during conflict. As followers of Jesus, we are called on to mimic our Lord and be peacemakers. We learn that being a peacemaker is not just doing activities that promote a lack of conflict, but it’s about rather putting our trust and whole source of worth and significance in the one who is peace, Jesus.

We also look at the myths of this early church as often perceived or romanticized today and breakdown any misconceptions that might get in the way of living out what God has for His church today.

We find critical principles for lifestyle warfare in the account in Luke 10:1-18 that provide practical ways to live out the beauty of the Kingdom of God in everyday life encounters.

  • In this first sermon of our Throughline series, Greg reflects on our history as a church, and reaffirms our central theme of Love: our first and last and only job here on earth is to do all things in love. Just as love provides purpose to a marriage, it provides our mission as a church, as well as to us as individuals as part of the body of Christ.

  • God clearly shows amazing hospitality towards us from Genesis through Revelation, and yet we rejected Jesus, and we continue to reject countless others day by day. We have a superiority issue that Jesus confronted throughout his ministry, and he taught us to live a better way. It’s time for us to learn and practice some genuine hospitality!

  • Topics – Discipleship, Power, God's Will
  • In this second installment of the Formed series, Seth explores what it is that holds us back as followers of Christ, or creates a gap between the person we want to be and know is inside of us and who actually are. We know that Jesus wants to give us an abundant life, but our reality is often one of spiritual scarcity and daily bondage to destructive ideas and behaviors. In this message we examine what it looks like to surrender our will and trust in our heavenly Father.

  • In this installment of our Formed series, Greg Boyd explores the importance of the Practice of No in the life of Christian discipleship. The story of Elijah and his experience with God on Mount Horeb are the foundation of this sermon as Greg examines how God lives in the quiet in the midst of a world that keeps getting louder and more sensational. The discipline of simplicity is an important tool to learn how to keep our gaze focused on Jesus rather than constantly looking for more.

  • So why DO bad things happen to good people?!  What IS God’s plan for overcoming evil, and why does it so often seem like evil is still winning?! 

    Yes, God does have the power to take anything that Satan intends for evil and to work it to bring about good, but this is not work that God intends to do alone.  He “comes alongside” us to “work all things for good”, but this is a process that requires OUR cooperation!

  • In this sixth and last installment of the Formed series, Seth explores more in depth how ideas and identities we take upon our self that are not from God keep us from growing mature in the faith. God has provided the type of soil fertile for growth and He sees the potential in us as seeds. At the center of our calling is to mimic the type of soil Jesus has been to us by our love toward others. We are to be the type of soil where others will experience the Father’s love.

  • This week we begin our Christmas series, The Night that Changed the World. This first week focuses on the peace that comes through Christ. Greg delves into the distractions that can get in the way of experiencing this peace of Christ. This peace of Christ requires an intentional inventory of the degree to which Christ has full reign over both our outer and inner lives. In this sermon we look into some crucial questions and practices to submit all of our lives to the reign of Christ to experience true peace that can only come through the Prince of Peace.

  • For children, Christmas is a time filled with wonder and awe.  But as we grow, we tend to lose our sense of wonder and awe not only about Christmas, but about our world, our lives, and everything else!  We all innately long to return “home” – home to a place where love overwhelms us and all things are new and glorious – and we long for someone who will take us there.  But could that ever really happen?  Praise God, for as wondrous and awe-inspiring as it sounds, that’s exactly what Jesus did for us on that first Christmas!

  • Our modern lives tend to get so busy that our everyday realities can keep us from seeing and experiencing that God loves us and is always with us.  Emmanuel means “God with us”, and while it may sound a bit surreal, the Christmas story is as true today as it was on that first Christmas – God IS here with us!
