God is for Those Who have been Turned Off by the Church

Many people have been let down by a church before.  Some have been let down by those calling themselves Christians.  If you have been disappointed or have seen hypocrisy before, you're not alone.  Jesus saw it as a problem, too.  But He didn't let that stop Him from showing that God is for the rest of us!

    God for the Rest of Us

    It's easy to think that God hangs out with good people.  Righteous people.  The kind of people that go to church every week.  But the Bible describes God as one who pursues us.  No matter where we've gone or what we've done, God is not just willing to take us back... that's the very reason Jesus came in the first place... for the rest of us.

    God will Never Give You More than You can Handle

    At first glance, this phrase seems comforting... that God would not allow you to be hit with more than what's fair.  The problem is: The Bible Doesn't Say That.  Scripture clearly teaches us that we'll often face sin, temptation, trouble and all sorts of situations in life that we cannot handle... on our own.

    “Judge Not.”

    "Don't judge me" is a common defense for just about anything these days.  Many use Jesus' words "Judge not, let you be judged," to promote tolerance.  But is that really what Jesus meant?

    “Obedience Always Leads to Financial Blessing.”

    Not so much a "catchy phrase" as it is a philosophy today, the idea that God will financial bless you if you financially contribute has been around for a while now.  But what does the Bible really say about this attitude?

    “God Helps Those Who Help Themselves”

    Our culture is filled with expressions that may appear to be from the Bible, but in reality "the Bible doesn't say that."  In our first message, we tackle what the Bible actually says in response to the phrase, "God helps those who help themselves."

    Heroes of Faith – David

    It's not difficult to think of David as a hero.  His accomplishments as a warrior and king are well-known.  But the very heart of who he was teaches us what it's like to be a Hero of Faith.

    Heroes of Faith – Samson

    Samson's life story can make us a little uncomfortable.  His behavior is sometimes questionable... yet God still used him to accomplish mighty things.  Could his story help us in our own Christian journey?

    Heroes of Faith – Ruth

    Ruth is an unlikely hero... the kind that we all love to see win in the end.  Yet her story leads to the greatest story ever told, pointing squarely to Jesus, the Redeemer.

    Heroes of Faith – Moses

    Moses was a reluctant hero who witnessed God's amazing power delivering the Israelites from Egypt.  Yet Moses' greatest moment was witnessing Jesus, the Lamb of God, become the ultimate sacrifice for whole world.
