Previous Programs

Grace is not a spiritual supplement that God provides because we can’t keep his law, it is the love and freedom-producing action of God that reconstitutes humanity into an entirely new creation, that transformed us and gave us new life that no amount of law keeping could sustain. (3.53 minutes)
The Bible is known as the “good book,” but many people don’t seem to know what it’s good for. Some people think it's good for everything, for every question. (3.30 minutes)
Imagine if we could all present the gospel the way Jesus said to – by letting our light shine in such a way that people are won over instead of put off. (3.08 minutes)
Authentic Christianity is not another religion. It’s about becoming who Jesus created us to be – not a matter of prioritizing our life to make Jesus number one on our to-do list. (3.77 minutes)
John wrote the book of Revelation in a literary style called “apocalyptic.” It uses fantastic images and symbols to describe God’s judgment and victory over evil. (2.98 minutes)
Our theology defines how we understand God’s nature, character, heart, mind and purpose. It helps us understand how God views us as humans and what kind of relationship he wants with us. (3.45 minutes)
God doesn't define us by our lacks and our failures; he sees our whole being: the good, the bad and the ugly, and he loves us dearly in spite of everything. (3.70 minutes)
Some of us make the Christian life far harder than it needs to be. We knock ourselves out instead of trusting God. (2.83 minutes)
Recently when someone approached me after a sermon and asked what the difference is between “reconciliation” and “redemption.” (6.17 minutes)
When Pontius Pilate gave the order for Jesus to be crucified, he sentenced himself and everyone else to death as well. (3.55 minutes)
