Thanks
Nov 10 • 31 min
We all want to be more grateful, but it's often difficult. Yet when we recognize that everything we have is a gift from God, we can't help but feel grateful. And as we develop a rhythm of thanking God, gratitude fills us with joy and changes the way we…
Help!
Nov 3 • 38 min
“Help” is a complete sentence and perhaps the most concise and effective prayer in the world. The great preacher Charles Spurgeon said, “Whether we like it or not, asking is the rule of the Kingdom.” A new life starts with surrender when we say, “Here,…
Talented People
Oct 27 • 39 min
It's easy to hold on to what we have in order to feel secure. But God is the source of all our gifts, and when we are generous with those gifts, God uses our generosity to change our hearts and the world. Download the sermon notes.
The Highest Value
Oct 20 • 39 min
It's easy to fall into the belief that we can find happiness in jobs and achievements, but when we seek fulfillment in those things, we find them unfulfilling and empty. In Philippians, Paul teaches that knowing Christ is of highest value, and when we…
You Are Free to Be Generous
Oct 13 • 38 min
The things we worry about compete for mastery of our lives. When put God first, we are free from worry. When we trust God, we are free to leave the results of our obedience to our loving, merciful, glorious savior, Jesus. Download the sermon notes.
Born to be Generous
Oct 6 • 30 min
God is love, and God's love for us has been revealed perfectly in Jesus. As loved people who are created in God's image, we respond to God's love by loving others and being generous. Download the sermon notes.
The Reliability of the New Testament
Sep 29 • 36 min
Is the New Testament reliable? Rev. Brandon Blacksten explores the challenges of the New Testament's origins and consistency, and concludes that, ultimately, we can trust the New Testament account of the Good News of Jesus. Download the sermon notes.
Homosexuality and the Bible
Sep 22 • 45 min
Homosexuality is the most divisive issue facing Christianity today. Of the more than 31,000 verses in the Bible, less than 8 potentially relate to homosexuality. Dr. Mark Foster explores these passages and casts a vision for a community that is grounded…
Violence and God in the Bible
Sep 15 • 42 min
How do we understand violence and God in the Bible? Some Old Testament passages where God commands violence and genocide stand in stark contrast to Jesus' new command to “Love one another as I have loved you.” Dr. Mark Foster is joined this week by three…
The Word of God
Sep 8 • 37 min
The Word of God is Jesus Christ, and the words of the Bible tell us about that Word. So what do we do when we don’t understand portions of the Bible? What do we do when we do understand and are appalled? Dr. Mark Foster helps us learn how to read and NOT…
Words to Build a Life On
Sep 1 • 33 min
In a world of “soundbites,” “headlines,” and “memes,” it can be difficult to get to the truth of what someone is saying. In this sermon, Dr. Mark summarizes the Sermon on the Mount covering the highlights of Matthew chapters five, six, and seven to allow…
The Community of Prayerful Love
Aug 25 • 30 min
In a world filled with condemnation, the church can be a "community of prayerful love." Through offering compassion (and not condemnation!) and through prayer, we can look more and more like the community Jesus described in Matthew 7. Download the sermon…
Letting Go of Worry
Aug 18 • 32 min
We all experience worry—sometimes to the point that we can't think of anything else. But our worries can tell us what we truly treasure. Jesus teaches that when we learn to treasure what God treasures, we can let go of worry and find freedom. Download the…
How to Be Holy
Aug 11 • 32 min

232: Connecting All the Pieces
Jul 21 • 43 min
We can go out in Jesus' protection and power because all authority on heaven and earth are his. He is Christ Pantocrator, Ruler of All. Be not afraid. We are in the wonderful and loving reign of Jesus the Christ. Download the sermon notes.
231: Building on a Firm Foundation
Jul 14 • 32 min
We're often tempted to take the easy way out, but when we do so, we're like workers who build on a foundation of sand. Jesus shows us a better way, and when we build on the foundation of his teaching, we build a life that can endure. Download the sermon…
230: Follow the Instructions
Jul 7 • 39 min
When building something, we start with the instructions, but instructions can't tell us how to deal with every situation. By exploring one of the most well-known sets of instructions—the Ten Commandments—we discover a pattern that shows us a way of life…
229: Mission Outpost
Jun 30 • 32 min
In the book of Acts, the Antioch Church was a church that dug deep and reached out. Like them, we too can dig deep with devotion, encouragement, and discipleship, as well as reach out through the Holy Spirit, to diverse groups, in love. Teacher: Rev. John…
228: Off the Beaten Path
Jun 23 • 37 min

227: True Community
Jun 16 • 41 min
When we head into uncharted territory, we need a community around us if we are to reach our goal. When the church was born, the disciples had to learn a new way of living together, and God used their new community to transform the world. Download the…
226: A New Canoe
Jun 9 • 33 min
After he ascended into heaven, Jesus gave the disciples a task that was beyond their ability. But at Pentecost, the Holy Spirit filled them and gave them power to do things they previously could only have dreamt of. And the same Holy Spirit promises to…
225: Uncharted Territory
Jun 2 • 27 min
At some point, we all realize that what got us here will not get us where we need to go. Jesus' disciples faced that situation when he ascended into heaven, and he gave them a mission that was beyond anything they had ever done before. Their response…
224: Overflow
May 28 • 29 min
Jesus said "Out of the overflow of the heart, the mouth speaks." Our words and actions flow from what we treasure in our hearts. When we treasure the word of Christ and the love of God within our hearts, we can overflow with love and kindness. Download…
223: When God is Silent
May 19 • 38 min

222: What God Sounds Like
May 12 • 38 min
God is more ready to talk to you than you are ready to listen. You can learn to hear the direct, loving, weighty voice of God through scripture. Over thousands of years, God’s voice is consistent. Pastor Mark shows us how we can know God’s voice today.…
221: Competing Voices
May 5 • 29 min
Every day, we are bombarded by voices that compete for our time, attention, and our hearts. In a sea of competing voices, how do we discern the one voice that leads to abundant life? Download the sermon notes.
220: Listening
Apr 28 • 32 min
God's voice can be difficult to hear, as the boy Samuel found out. However, Samuel was able to discern God's voice through the help of his mentor Eli and through praying this prayer: "Speak, Lord, for your servant is listening." Often, the first step…
219: He IS Risen
Apr 21 • 33 min
On Friday, Jesus was crucified, and his followers were overcome with pain. On Saturday, they waited, and nothing made sense. But on Sunday, Jesus rose from the dead, and they experienced deliverance. Whether you find yourself in a time of waiting or pain,…
218: Sloth and Diligence
Apr 14 • 38 min
Sloth is painful to watch, but easy to fall into. When we give in to sloth, we become indifferent to those around us. But throughout his life, Jesus models a better way—the way of diligence. Teacher: Dr. Mark Foster Passage: Matthew 26:36-41 Download the…
217: Avarice and Generosity
Apr 7 • 37 min
While it’s easy to see greed as a temptation only for the very rich, the desire for more affects all of us. Instead of accumulating as much as possible and holding on for dear life, though, Jesus teaches that generosity sets us free from greed and lets us…
216: Gluttony and Temperance
Mar 31 • 40 min

214: Lust and Chastity

213: Anger and Patience
Mar 10 • 31 min

212: Pride and Humility
Mar 3 • 37 min

207: An Unexpected End
Jan 27 • 23 min

206: An Unexpected Refusal
Jan 20 • 33 min
We don’t always get what we ask for, and it can be painful when we receive an answer we didn’t expect. Sometimes, Jesus says no when we expect him to say yes. But his “Yes” and his “No” are always for our good. Teacher: Dr. Mark Foster Passage: Mark…
