"the greatest risk is not risking at all"

Today we look into Matthew 25:14-30 and find that Jesus shares a story of three servants who were entrusted with different amounts of "talents," each according to his ability. For each one of us in this momentary life, what risks has God put in front of you today that He's calling you to?

This Momentary Life (Week 2):

"check yourself before you wreck yourself"

PASTOR jon pearce

This Momentary Life (Week 1): "The Wedding Feast"

PASTOR Rob tuma

The first message in this new series brings us to Jesus' parable of the Wedding Feast. Many want to be part of the feast, but they don't want to submit themselves to God's terms.

PASTOR John Stamper

Anthems of Advent

Anthems of advent (PT 5): "the wise men"

Give Thanks

give thanks (PT 2): "living with expectation"

PASTOR john stamper

Elijah dealt with abandonment, isolation, and harassment. However, he stepped forward expecting God to move. Can you imagine what would happen if we prayed, ministered, and lead with that level of expectation? We would experience and encounter an all-consuming God not only in our lives, but also in our church, city and beyond.

give thanks (PT 1): "Contrasts in contentment"


Be content and want what you have.

Come As You Are

Come as you are (PT 3)


There are three sons in the prodigal parable. Jesus offers an invitation of grace and how that impacts our own story.

In Luke 15, Jesus tells the parable of the lost coin. There in that parable we find an unbelievable truth about our value and how it changes everything.

God has the cure for all separation! In Matthew 5:17-20, Jesus breaks down the walls of separation and did the opposite of what was expected of Him. Jesus did not come to abolish the law but to fulfill it.

A Radical Faith

The demands of the kingdom: a radical faith

Special Guest: PASTOR Bob Russell

There are two basic truths in Luke 9:23-25; one has to do with our belief and the other has to do with our behavior. A radical faith follows Jesus exclusively and a radical faith demands self-denial. Only when we capture the radical nature of these two truths will we be ready to face the spiritual challenges that we'll be facing tomorrow.

Kingdom Come

kingdom Come (Pt 3)


Could it be we have grown conditioned to an underwhelming purpose? Do we know why we are on this earth? These are some of the questions that are answered in this message.

Even great things can derail our life when they become our ultimate thing. Joshua 23-24 is all about a life that clings to the right thing.

warrior series



What giant is standing before you today? For some of you it's the same giant that your dad, grandpa, and his dad faced. This is called a "Generational Giant." Do not give up hope. Your Heavenly father is calling you to stand up and Fight with faith... for your identity... for your family... your legacy!



Men... you are a Warrior... longing to fight for the right things... to live courageously... to say "I grasped the glory" in this life! Even more, Gods wants this for you, and your family. He wants the very best and blessed life for you! Fighting for your family starts with pursuing God, then pursuing your wife, and your children... Warrior, this is your day to say, "I will fight by pursuing!"

warrior (pt 1) "Fight For your identity"


Men identify themselves in two ways; present successes and by past failures. When we allow present success or past failures define us, it deters us from the life God truly dreams for us. If we want to become a true Warrior and fight for our true identity it's dropping to a knee and giving our life to Jesus!
