Unraveling Truth

Jan 29 2023 • Cedrick Baker, Dan Kent, Danny Churchill, Greg Boyd, Shawna Boren

“What is truth?” Pilate asked Jesus, and his question is still relevant today. Many of us believe we have moved beyond an age of absolutes, and that one person’s reality is just as good as another’s. With “my truth” and “your truth”, we sometimes find ourselves playing a game of “Whose Truth is it Anyway?” While it can feel that all truth is unraveling, what if instead, there is certainty at the core of all things? During Unraveling Truth, we’ll attempt to peel back the layers to get to the heart of it.

Sermons in this series:

Natural Habitat

• Greg Boyd

We live in a world where most people believe in some form of a God, but more often than not, people do not view God as personal or in a relationship with us. This sermon explores why it is logical to say both that God exists and is personal, and then it examines the importance of cultivating this personal interaction with God.

Topics: Defense of Christian Faith, Presence of God

The Physics of Faith

Absolute Relativism

"My almost-three-year-old asks every day if we can go to church. Thank you, Woodland Hills, and all the Heroes Gate volunteers for creating such a great environment for kids. My husband and I met at WH six years ago and now our son counts down the days until we get to go again. My heart could burst."
