New Sermon Series: 6 Spiritual Principles That Will Change Your Life - Starts on April 21

A principle is a rule of action or conduct. Whether we know it or not, each of us lives by a set of principles. Some of these rules we learned in childhood, some we learned through failure, and some through success. The Bible is timeless and trusted. The eternal God continues to speak to us today through His Word. Join us as we explore how God’s principles for life remain constant and will guide us into a life of peace and joy.

Sermon Series: Love Like That - started on January 20

If you have missed the previous Love Like That sermons, we invite you to catch up online. Click the link below to access the audio/video of the service.

Let’s be honest.  How many times have you fallen short at being a good friend, a wise parent, or a self-giving spouse because you didn't love—truly love—at the highest level?  It’s tough.  We’re bound to fail. The bar is so high, especially if you aspire to love like Jesus. But it’s not impossible. As followers of Jesus, we were meant to radically love those around us and give the world a glimpse of what God is like. But this is easier said than done. What does it actually mean to love like Jesus? And why do we so quickly get bogged down in our own selfishness, sin, and futile efforts? In this new sermon series, we will be examining Jesus’s life and character traits to give practical definition to what it means to love like Jesus.  The Holy Spirit invites us to trade detachment, exclusivity, judgment, fear, and self-concern for mindfulness, approachability, grace, boldness, and self-giving.  He empowers us to love like Jesus, and frees us to experience genuine joy.
