Tapestry Q&A Night

• Greg Boyd, Paul Eddy

We held a Q&A night to wrap up our Tapestry sermon series on Tuesday, May 22, 2012. During the teaching portion of the evening, Paul and Greg provided a review of the Christian threads covered during the series – Protestant, Pietistic, Charismatic and Anabaptist – and also unpacked how our beliefs have been influenced by the Catholic and Eastern Orthodox Churches. Then they opened it up for questions about the series and how Woodland's values and theology have been shaped by various church traditions.

Topics: Anabaptism

Our Anabaptist Thread

• Greg Boyd

The teachings of the Anabaptist church are important to Woodland Hills Church. In this sermon, Greg talks about four of the six distinctive teachings of the Anabaptist movement (next week will cover the last two), and they are still relevant today.

Topics: Anabaptism, Baptism, Non-Violence, Simplicity

The Lutheran Thread

• Greg Boyd

There are many values of Lutheranism that flow through the life of Woodland Hills Church. In this sermon, Greg talks about these threads and how they impact our way of doing church. Whether it’s sola scriptura or the faith/grace interaction, we are not alone in our use of Luther’s teachings.

Topics: Faith, Grace, Nationalism

Our One Foundation

• Greg Boyd

We see a lot of Christians base their lives on different things. Some base them on wayward things, such as government, the economy, their own job, or their health—the things that are here one day and gone tomorrow. However, Jesus says that he is the one foundation. In this sermon, Greg talks about how we are to base our lives upon Jesus, and also shows how Woodland Hills has done this.

Topics: Identity in Christ, Relationships, Simplicity


"I have found, in you, a place where the preached word profoundly resonates with my own recent journey of faith and has cemented a new way of thinking, I suppose like jigsaw pieces falling into place. I am grateful that a friend pointed me in your direction."

– Elaine, from the United Kingdom
