In addition to sermon audio and video files, many of our sermons have other resources available like extended summaries and study guides. Our archive dates back to 1992 and all resources are free to download and distribute. Most sermons are by our Senior Pastor, Greg Boyd.
Often today, Christians attempt to witness to non-believers out of a sense of obligation and guilt. If the power of the Holy Spirit is not behind that witnessing, however, those attempts will be largely futile. As much of the church today is unhealthy, so also the church's attempts at witnessing are often unhealthy.
Since about the 4th century, the Christian church has adopted the pagan idea that the church is to be made up of a religious professional and his audience. The professional (called father, reverend, etc.) does the religious stuff whilst the congregation sits back and enjoys the show.
Our peace of mind must be based on God's passionate love for us, not on the state of the world around us. We must receive that unconditional peace (which only comes from God) before we can become peacemakers. We must experience the fact that the world can't give us peace, only Jesus can.
In our society there is a deepening divide between the races. Participation in hate groups is growing by leaps and bounds. One group elevates itself and puts down all others. From the beginning, God has hated racism.
