Mark: Why Bother?

There is an attitude that is becoming more prevalent among Christians. It might be called the why-bother-attitude. Can’t change the way that I am, so why bother.

When you look at a seed, what do you see? What do you think? Usually we are thinking potential and possibility. We are picturing not a seed, but a plant. In the same way, as God looks at us, He sees what we can become. He sees potential and possibility. That’s true for us as a church and as [...]

Daniel: How God Loves You

Pastor Phil WagnerThe message of our secular world is that there is no God or that God does not matter. Even worse, the devil tries to convince us that God does not love us.

Daniel: The Fiery Furnace

The Fiery Furnace is the ultimate Daniel story. We know the story, but have we looked closely at the lessons God wants to teach us?
