Topic: Kingdom of God

The Kingdom Bullseye

Jesus announced that he came to fulfill every part of the law. How was he able to do this when he was accused of breaking the law? He did this by redefining the law of God around the law of love. This is the bullseye of God’s Kingdom.


Neon Sheep

This sermon asks what it means for God’s people to be salt and light in practical terms. Dan proposes three practical ways that we can move toward and embrace this call of God upon our lives.


Radiant

Jesus said, “You are the light of the world.” In this sermon, we learn how being the light is much more than simply doing good deeds. It entails God’s call upon God’s people to be a distinct people who walk in covenant with him and shine forth an alternative pattern of living for all to see.


Stay Salty

Jesus said, “You are the salt of the earth.” What are the functions of salt, and what does this mean for us today? How does this shape the way we interact with the world? Greg explores these questions in this sermon.

The Sermon on the Mount opens with a teaching on being poor in spirit, which refers to an attitude one has before God. It means not being self-reliant, but broken and dependent upon God for life.


Not a New Problem

This concluding sermon in our Race Conciliation series briefly addresses how prevalent racism has been in the history of the church. Then we hosted an extended panel discussion to answer questions we’ve gotten about race, and to discuss how to move forward as a reconciling people.


Why Do All Our Friends Look Just Like Us?

We are expected to go through life with friends who look like us. Being close with people who do not look like you is unusual in our culture, and the church tends to perpetuate this pattern. However, God’s Kingdom is comprised of people from all kinds of backgrounds that don’t look like our own. The question we all face is, … Read More

"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."
