From Saved "Souls" to Saved "Wholes" (Pastor TD Davis)
"If you died today, would you go to heaven?" Chances are, this sentiment is all too familiar in our experiences with well-intended Christians and Jesus' "good news". But what if the Gospel Jesus proclaimed wasn't solely focused on future events and actually applied to our everyday circumstances with the potential to powerfully change anything and everything? In this first message of the series "The Whole Gospel", T.D. Davis (Co Lead Pastor) frames the series big idea: Jesus' Gospel of the Kingdom offers "good news" through real-time transformation in the here and now which sets the stage for the hope of an ultimate future to come.
Process to Purpose to Progress (Pastor Kalli Davis)
Throughout this message, Pastor Kalli looks at the life of Moses as he walks from process to purpose to progress. If you find yourself in a wilderness season, be encouraged, you might be right where you are supposed to be. Moses encountered a burning bush filled with purpose on the far side of the wilderness. God uses our process in the pasture, as He did with Moses, to develop us and call us to others. God turned the nature to purpose, the wilderness to worship, and the unseen process into holy ground.
Trusting Through "The Wall" (Pastor TD Davis)
Where is your trust heading into 2022? A new year often symbolizes the inevitable change of the season into the unknowns and unexpected moments of life, much like what St. John Of The Cross described as "The Dark Night Of The Soul". In this final message of the series, "Emotionally Healthy Advent", TD Davis (Co Lead Pastor) encourages us to trust God and His light in times and seasons of darkness and difficulty even when they beg for us to give up and lose hope.
My Family Is Flawed (Pastor TD Davis)
The post-quarantine Christmas season acknowledges one obvious reality for many: Families are gathering back together again! No matter what emotional response this thought brings for you, it’s impossible to avoid one simple fact regarding the messiness of human community: Every family of origin isn't perfect! In fact, these “imperfect” beginnings directly shape who we are today and how we live out our future story. In this message, T.D. Davis (Co-Lead Pastor) helps us understand how an “Emotionally Healthy Advent” includes acknowledging the origins of our past in order to move towards our own unique purpose and spiritual flourishing.
No Longer Separated (Pastor Kalli Davis)
In this message, Pastor Kalli discusses how we no longer have to live in separation from God. We can come close to Him and allow Him to come close to us. However, this takes honesty and vulnerability before the Lord. Thus, we must become honest with ourselves in order to be honest with him. In essence, we must come close to ourselves so that we may come close to Him.
There's Something Missing (Pastor TD Davis)
Advent (derived from the Latin word meaning “coming”), represents the fullness of God being revealed in Jesus to humanity in a number of ways. The irony of the Christmas story is that God Himself came into the world as a human and didn’t deny any aspect of what it meant to be fully human. In this first message of the series “Emotionally Healthy Advent", T.D. Davis (Co-Lead Pastor) highlights the need for emotional health as a required point of transformation in regards to our spiritual health and wholeness.
The Image of Action (Pastor Grayson Jennings)
In Matthew 25, we see Jesus confronting His disciples about the reality and nature of HIs promised return, and His Father's coming Kingdom. In this message, Grayson Jennings (Executive Pastor), through the Parable of the Talents, shows us that Jesus has left us, His followers, here on mission; tasked not with the simple stewardship of wealth, gifting and talent, but more importantly the stewardship of His Gospel
The Image of Personal Confession (Pastor Kalli Davis)
In Matthew 7 we see Jesus calling His followers to sort out their own vision before calling out the speck in their neighbors eye, revealing the hypocrisy of judgement. Instead of judgement, He calls for personal confession from those who are eager to draw lines in the sand. Through this sermon, we ponder the beautiful way in which Jesus deals with sin and self righteousness alike, yet allows mercy to gloriously triumph over justice.
The Image of Kingdom Fairness (Pastor Nate Fortin)
When we say, "That is not fair", the response we have heard our entire life has always been, "Well, life is not fair!". Is anyone just not okay with that response? Nate Fortin (Youth Pastor), through the Parable of the Workers in the Vineyard, shows us how Jesus paints this picture of kingdom fairness, as opposed to the worldly fairness we often look for. The hunt for worldly fairness leaves us always wanting more in the midst of the hardships of life. With kingdom fairness, we rest in the eternal fairness and blessings that God has for us as God says, "I know this life is not fair, that is why what I have for you extends far past this life".
The Image of Arrogance (Pastor T.D. Davis)
In many ways, arrogance represents an attempt to elevate ourselves above others. Consequently, in the parable of the “strong man”, Jesus paints a compelling and confrontational word picture towards his enemies concerning this problematic attitude of the heart. In this message, T.D. Davis (co-lead pastor) explores the irony of Jesus’ parabolic image of arrogance in which “allegiance to God” through superiority can lead to aligning with the wrong side altogether.
The Image of Purpose (Pastor Donai Perez)
Jesus taught in parables to reveal the secrets of the Kingdom. In this message, Donai Pérez (Worship Pastor) preaches out of Matthew 15, the Parable of the Lamp, to showcase how Jesus teaches the hearers that they have purpose in this life. In this parable, Jesus teaches that His people are made for more, commissioned to more, and well equipped for more. You are the light of the world because you have the promise of His spirit with you.
