Feb 3 What Do You Treasure? / Matthew 6:19-24

Pete Hingano

Whatever demands our heart and whatever we desire will be what we are devoted to and ultimately serve. As Christ-followers we like to say we value God, but our actions often say otherwise. Jesus knew this would be a struggle for all who follow Him, so He makes it clear that whatever we treasure, our… More

Jan 27 The Motives of the Heart / Matthew 6:1-18

Mike Slayden

In this passage, Jesus is admonishing His followers to live differently than the religious hypocrites.

Jan 20 Living Under the Authority of the King / Matthew 5:38-48

Jan 13 Community by God's Design

Brad Bell

If you’ve ever felt like a stranger in a roomful of people, our desire is that you would not feel that here. We would love to help you get connected and be part of community, as God designed.

Jan 6 The Sin Beneath the Symptoms / Matthew 5:27-37

Mike Slayden

In this message we will look at how Jesus reinterprets Mosaic Law and ups the ante for what the life of a true follower of God looks like. The law was never meant to be obeyed mindlessly to check a box or appear good to others. Instead, Jesus changes the focus from the external behavior to the heart… More

Dec 30 2018 Salt, Light and Law / Matthew 5:13-26

Chris Schultz

Jesus didn’t come to abolish the law as if it doesn’t matter. He came to fulfill the law. If we are not living in obedience, it’s not a matter of modifying our behavior; it’s a matter of the heart. Out of the understanding of the fullness of Christ and the humility of what He has done for us, we… More

Dec 23 2018 The Gift of Incarnation / Luke 2:1-20 / Philippians 2:5-11

Brad Bell

The scandal of the Christmas story is that we have a holy God who incarnated for a fallen mankind. God, in His grace, in His love, did not leave us as orphans stranded in the depths of our sin. Rather, He chose to incarnate as a means of relational connection with us and to die in our place. The… More

Dec 16 2018 The Beatitudes / Matthew 5:1-12

Brad Bell

At the time Jesus gave the Sermon on the Mount, there was much discord in Israel, with four primary religious groups that were trying to establish their authority: the Pharisees, the Sadducees, the Essenes and the Zealots. While fully aware of the presence of the crowds surrounding them, it was in… More

Dec 9 2018 The Calling of the Disciples / Matthew 4:12-25

Dec 2 2018 The Temptation of Jesus / Matthew 4:1-11
