Sermon messages from Pastor J.D. Greear and the pastoral team of The Summit Church. The Summit is one church that meets in many locations around Raleigh-Durham, N.C.
The One With the Prostitute, the Pharisee, and Jesus
As we continue our “In Step” series through the book of Luke, Pastor J.D. teaches about the scandal of grace. Grace offends most people, particularly religious people. We are hard-wired to think that our worth is a result of what we do. Do good things, get good outcomes. Do bad things, get bad outcomes. Grace throws this whole system aside. And thank God it does, because without the scandal of grace, none of us would have any hope.
As we continue our “In Step” series through the book of Luke, Pastor J.D. teaches what it means to “live ready” for Jesus’ return. Are we awake to the task Jesus left for his church, or are we asleep at the wheel? Are we confident Jesus will return soon, or do we live without urgency? As followers of Jesus, we should live in such a way that only makes sense if we believe Jesus could be back at any moment.
Be on Guard Against Greed
As we continue our “In Step” series through the book of Luke, Pastor J.D. preaches about a sickness that most of us have, but few of us realize—the sickness of greed. Part of what makes greed so deadly is our inherent blindness to it. Jesus simply assumes that greed is a problem for all of us! But he also offers us a radical, gospel-shaped antidote.
Feet on the Rock
As we begin our “In Step” series through the book of Luke, Pastor J.D. dives into one of Jesus’ most recognized parables. It’s a story about two men who built identical houses—with tragically different results. The only difference? Their foundation. In these times of uncertainty, as our very lives seem shaken, it’s a perfect time to make sure our lives are built on a foundation that will endure.
E Pluribus Unum
In this final message in our “Flags” series, Pastor Bryan preaches about unity in the body of Christ. It’s a sad fact that for many followers of Jesus, we have allowed MSNBC, Fox News, and CNN to disciple us more than Jesus. As political division and polarization increase, God calls our church to a different reality. The way forward is to remember that however divided we may be politically, in Christ, we are all on the same team.
Rest Rehab: ACT
In this message on Matthew 11:28–30, Pastor Curtis offers a welcome word to a weary world: “Rest.” We live our lives at a frenzied pace—addicted to technology, disconnected from others, struggling with anxiety and depression. We’re soul tired. But ironically enough, admitting we’re tired is the first step on the road to recovery. Are you ready for an intervention?

This sermon series, this entire channel actually, has been a tremendous blessing. I was really discouraged and downtrodden and I stumbled upon this channel, looking for something to lift me up and bring me back on the right track and this helped me get back in line to where I needed to be. Please keep the sermons coming and stay strong in the Lord.
