    Providential Relationships

    Providential Relationships

    Our relationships have the potential to be much more than good friendships or mutual connections; Healthy relationships help to grow our lives & build our faith foundation.

    It’s also true that relationships can cause negative influence on us. Yet we can intentionally choose to be in the right places for positive relationships to develop. When we are in the right place, God can place new relationships in our life so that we might grow and develop.



    Life is meant to be shared with others. We need others, and others need us as well! God can providentially use human connections & relationships to help transform our lives.

    Private Disciplines

    Private Disciplines

    To grow and become stronger in life, we need patterns of discipline. We know that DISCIPLINE always progresses us, even though it can be really hard!

    Our Faith grows very similarly to our bodies’ muscles: when we go through the tension of choosing to trust in God when it’s hard to, the foundation of our faith becomes strengthened in Him.

    Obedience to God is dependent on our confidence in Him. Private disciplines give us the opportunity to obediently follow God’s direction and trust that He will lead us, making us secure in Him. God wants to faithfully fulfill His promise to provide for us and protect us as we stay disciplined in following Him.

    Practical Teaching

    Practical Teaching

    Everything in life has a foundation; something that holds it together. Buildings have a foundational structure, and our lives are much the same. With a firm foundation, we're strengthened and empowered to live our lives with great purpose and meaning.

    So, is there a way to strengthen and grow our foundation? Jesus gave us the answer that as our faith stays grounded in Him, He will strengthen and secure us in life. For us to grow, we must stay connected to God and receive the wisdom that He is speaking to us. And as we intentionally APPLY Jesus’ teachings to our lives, our foundation grows stronger.

    The Arrival Of Love

    The Arrival Of Love

    God showed us His Love by giving us His Son, Jesus. Through Jesus, God’s love arrived in a powerful, real way that brought us hope, peace, joy, forgiveness, and renewed relationship with God. Our world changed because Jesus came to give ALL of Himself to us. That was His sacrificial gift of Love!

    As Jesus has come to us, He asks that we follow Him and allow Him to guide & direct our lives. He is our Lord and leader. He’s the one who has promised to forgive us of what we’ve done wrong and give us new life in Him. And He’s the friend who wants to be near us, so that He might continuously show how great His love for us is.

    Receiving Jesus as our Lord means we have a relationship with Him, and it means we get to experience all that He wants to give us, through His perfect Love.

    The Arrival Of Joy

    The Arrival Of Joy

    How often do we consider the Joy in our lives? Is it the same as happiness, or is there something special to Joy? Something that comes from deeper within us?

    Circumstances will surely come our way that have the potential to drain the happiness from us. The hard parts of life: interruptions, challenges, and difficulties, can leave us feeling anxious, afraid, or even lost. Jesus came to us, right in the middle of the hard parts in life, to give us His Joy. This Joy is not just a one-time thing; It’s a spiritual condition that He continually renews in us.

    As we focus on staying close to Jesus, He promises to make our Joy complete in Him. Hard circumstances are not the end for us, because we have HOPE through Jesus as Emmanuel, “God with us”. We know that He will see us through any situation in life, as His LOVE guide us, directs us, and fills us with Joy.

    The Arrival Of Peace

    The Arrival Of Peace

    Christmas is one of the most cherished and special times of the year, but it can also bring extra stress, pressure, and chaos into our already busy lives. - When Jesus was born, this world was no less busy and chaotic than it is today. In the middle of our mess, Jesus came to fulfill a promise that God made to us: His promise to bring Peace to our confusing and painful world. 


    The Peace that God gives us doesn’t simply mean a lack of conflict in our lives, it’s all about Him bringing COMPLETENESS & WHOLENESS to us. Jesus brought us Peace by restoring us to God, so that we could be close to Him again. He also restored us to each other, because Peace is never meant to be kept to ourselves; we’re meant to share it, and to extend it to others.

    God’s promises were fulfilled when He gave us Jesus as our Savior, and those promises are still being fulfilled in us today. Even with all the crazy in our lives, God wants to grow something miraculous inside of us; the powerful blessing of Peace that can only come from Him.
