Relationships are hard, right? Friends, co-workers, children, parents, husbands, wives, bosses, every relationship you have can sometimes be a challenge to get right. Everyone wants something different and needs something different. How do you keep it all together? Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a handy field guide to living with other people? Well we think there is. Join us as we dive into what God has to say about living with people and growing and maintaining our relationships.

The goodness of God's creation is revealed through the relationships we share. It is a crucial part of our existence.
The miracles of Jesus left people amazed and in awe at the power that God had given to one man, but Jesus did not do these things for his own profit, but so that people would believe that God had something better for them. At the end of his life, Jesus performed one last miracle that would change the landscape of the world for thousands of years to come. Join us as we look into the last miracle of Jesus and discover how our response to the resurrection is the defining factor in our faith.

Jesus' resurrection proved He was who He claimed to be, showed He has the power He claimed to have, and does what He promises He will do.
Faith in Christ isn’t based on if God does something great. Faith in Christ is based on the person of Jesus Christ and WHO He is, not just what He does. Jesus performed many miracles, signs, and wonders while on earth. Everything He did was so you might believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. Our Messiah. Our Savior. Join us as we explore six of His miracles.

Absolute theology is easy to believe when things are going well and it’s someone else’s issue. It’s a different game entirely when it’s your own issue.

Religious faith and belief are often divorced from reason and confused with hope.

Much of the perception of the Church has been “what” or “whom,” they were against. Godly acceptance allows us to communicate that GOD is FOR people, not against.

“Wisdom is becoming competent with regard to the realities of life—how things really happen, how things really are, and knowing what I should do about it.” – Garhard von Rad
We are called to change the world around us by being light in the dark. Do you know the ultimate purpose of your life is to make a difference? But how on earth do you do that? One word: Love. To change our world, we need to give the love we have experienced through knowing Jesus. Let 2022 be the year YOU change your world.

Commitment still leaves us in control, deciding according to our own agendas when or where we’ll serve Jesus. Submission means we yield to the will of Christ and do what He tells us to do day in and day out, altering our lives in obedience to Him and His Word.
