    UCT S3E1: The Kingdom of Heaven is Like...?

    UCT S3E1: The Kingdom of Heaven is Like...?

    The parables of Jesus are some of the most memorable and often-quoted passages of His teachings. It was very common for Jesus to express some of the most critical concepts using simple stories and examples. But do we always get the point?
    This week’s episode kicks off Season Three, in which we dive a little deeper into some of Jesus’ most memorable, and sometimes confusing, parables. The one thing all these stories have in common is the phrase, “The kingdom of God is like…” The implication is clear: if Jesus wants us tell us about His kingdom, shouldn’t we pay attention? 
    Today, Steve & Vicki tackle a couple of smaller parables from Matthew 13. What’s the significance of the kingdom being like, “Buried treasure,” or “a merchant in search of fine pearls?”

    UCT S2E16: Finding Freedom in Christ with Murray & Ash Smith

    UCT S2E16: Finding Freedom in Christ with Murray & Ash Smith

    In this episode we’re joined by Murray and Ash Smith, lead pastors at Catch The Fire in Raleigh-Durham North Carolina. The Smiths joined The Uncommon Truth as part of their visit to Oroville where they were guest teaching at the School of Transformation. Murray and Ash have a passion for the Holy Spirit and love to help lead people into the freedom of who Jesus created them to be. 
    Freedom is one of the big selling points of a life spent following Jesus. In Galatians, Paul writes, “It is for freedom the Christ has set us free.” So what is this freedom, and how do we experience it in real life?
    We often think that when we accept Jesus and choose to follow Him, we’re set free from everything that has ever held us back in an instant. But is that what scripture teaches? What about the baggage of our past experiences? What happens to the pain, unforgiveness and ungodly beliefs if we bring with us? If you could use even an ounce more freedom in your life, you won’t want to miss Murray and Ash Smith on The Uncommon Truth.

    UCT S2E15: More Listener Questions Answered

    In our final episode of our series on the foundations of The Father’s House Church––which definitely embody some uncommon truths––we’re finishing off by answering some of your listener questions. We started out doing just that a couple weeks ago, but we got so many good questions, we couldn’t resist having one more discussion about them.
    How we’re supposed to take care of our families while giving our lives away following Jesus? Does Jesus really expects us to be perfect like our Heavenly Father is? Why does God give authority to leaders who fail and fall? If you’ve ever thought about any of those questions, this episode is for you.

    UCT S2E14: Which Jesus Are We Following? with Pastor Tony Kim

    UCT S2E14: Which Jesus Are We Following? with Pastor Tony Kim

    Pastor Tony Kim joined the Uncommon Truth after spending time guest speaking at the School of Transformation. Tony and his wife Jessica are the leaders at Renaissance church in Bakersfield, California. Tony is the US National Director at Harvest International Ministry (HIM) and the founder and leader of Roar Collective and Roar Academy. 
    The Kim’s journey to Bakersfield mirrors Steve and Vicki’s in many ways. Bakersfield, like Oroville, has a notorious reputation for poverty, crime and hopelessness. For the past two decades, however, God has been using Tony & Jessica’s “yes” to transform the city, and the impact has been worldwide. In this episode, Tony shares some stories about following Jesus through some incredible circumstances. He asks the question, “If we’re not risking anything, are we following the right Jesus?”

    UCT S2E13: Listener Questions Answered

    UCT S2E13: Listener Questions Answered

    In the finale of our series on the main teaching points of The Father’s House Church, we’re wrapping up by answering some listener questions. One of the reasons Steve & Vicki’s podcast is called the Uncommon Truth is because it’s really hard to find any other ministry with this combination of teachings and values. It’s just as uncommon to find ministries with such a long record of success in personal and community transformation. 
    Naturally, people have questions, so today we’re answering questions about Steve & Vicki’s understanding of hell, how to determine who you should follow, and why The Father’s House has so many pastors.

    UCT S2E12: Giving Our Lives Away

    UCT S2E12: Giving Our Lives Away

    In Christianity, we focus a lot on the moment we first met Jesus. We also look forward to eternal life after we die. But when it comes to our lives on earth, here and now, what’s the purpose?
    If we take Jesus’ life as an example, it would seem pretty radical. Jesus came to lay His life down as a ransom for many. Have we missed that in Western Christianity? Are we believing in a comfortable, American-dream Jesus instead of Jesus on the cross?
