The Grace That Uses Brokenness
When we bring the shattered pieces of our identity to God, His grace is able to redeem all of it into beauty. The Lord forms our lives back together again, placing the shards into the form He wants.
The Three Different Aspects of God's Grace
In this message, Pastor Tony highlights that there is nothing more powerful than the effect of God's grace in and upon our lives, as well as three different measures of grace that God gives us.
The Physics Test That Taught The Grace Effect
Back in high school, Pastor Chris learned a lesson on grace that changed the rest of his life. We are not the sum of our mistakes. We are the sum of God's grace in our lives. And when we fully understand the message of grace, it will change our lives from the inside out.
Gods' Blueprint For Your Transformation
In this sermon, Dave Bauer teaches the importance of fearing the Lord as a way to find redemption and transformation in life. He shows the need to take responsibility for one's actions, understand God's love, and align with His will because the fear of the Lord has power.
A Call To Spiritual Housekeeping
In this message, Pastor Tony explainsthe duty of not neglecting the house of God, both in a physical and spiritual sense. Throughout the Rise & Build series we have discussed the history of Israel's rebuilding of the temple. The people's commitment to not neglecting God's house was emphasized as they brought offerings, tithes, and resources for the temple's upkeep. However in the New Testament, believers are now temples of the Holy Spirit! Just as the Old Testament priests cared for the temple, believers are called to care for their spiritual well-being, focusing on faith, anointing through the Holy Spirit, and personal sacrifice. For the final part in the series, Pastor Tony emphasizes always maintaining a strong connection with God, aligning our life with His will, and avoiding spiritual neglect.
Fueling Faith with the Joy of the Lord
In the message, Joy teaches about the importance of hungry hearts for God's Word, cultivating worshipful and repentant attitudes, and fostering obedient lives. In Nehemiah chapter 8, the joy of the Lord was highlighted as a source of strength, demonstrating how these key principles were instrumental in nurturing a thriving faith.
