The Garden is a church for skeptics and saints. It's a church where your bartender could get baptized, where broken marriages are restored, and the last person you'd see in church might be lit on fire by the hope of the Gospel. The Garden is a church that's not bashful about truth but enthusiastic about rich theology so that Christians young and old might be fully equipped.We long to see the whole West Valley renewed by the power and beauty of Jesus.

    What Is Love? | Revelation 7:1-8

    What Is Love? | Revelation 7:1-8

    There is a difference between love that’s sugary and love marked by loyalty. It’s the difference between wedding day love and the love that sits at the side of a loved ones death bed; between the friendship you have with buddies at the dive bar and that of a band of brothers willing to risk their lives for one another.

    Do you want to love people like that?

    You must experience loyal love before you can extend loyal love. Maybe you’ve NEVER experienced this kind of love. And even hearing about it makes you feel discouraged. But if you encounter Jesus today this love can take hold of you and ultimately come through you.

    The Power of A Poured Out Life | Revelation 6:9-17

    The goal is not just to live but to pour your life out for Jesus.

But if Jesus is who He said He was, there's something deep and eternal with giving yourself to. So how do you live poured out? There are powerful insights in Revelation 6:9-17 that will pour into you.

    This episode is the story of  the first year of planting roots in the West Valley.

    Pre-launch was a story of Gospel-risk, beautiful community, and the collective ownership of the mission by humble, Jesus-centered people .

    The Apocalypse?! | Revelation 6:1-8

    The Apocalypse?! | Revelation 6:1-8

    The end is coming! Buuuut we can't know when...

    Instead of predicting precise details of the end times, the book of Revelation puts forward life-changing truths in the midst of our everyday struggles. Specifically pain. 

    What are you going to do with the problem of suffering and hardship? In the famous passage about the four horsemen of the apocalypse, we see that Jesus is the hope you need in a hellish world.

    Right Now Counts Forever | Revelation 4:1-11

    The fastest growing worldview today is "no religious affiliation". Every corner of culture screams "right now is all you have". But John sees a vision in Revelation 4 that tells a totally different story: right now counts forever.

There are insights we gain from a glimpse of God's throne room that offers new meaning to both skeptics and saints. Listen to this teaching by Nolan Tjaden to find out why right now counts forever.
