3/20/2016 Who Moved the Stone?

We live today in a cynical, harsh, and attacking world. Negativity is everywhere. It’s easy to find bad news, especially as technology shrinks our world.

Guardrails Pastor Chip Garrison

10/19/2014 Freedom: We Are Rescued to Become Rescuers

Freeway Pastor Tom Lundeen
10/12/2014 Acceptance: Labels Lie

The identity we embrace determines our experience of freedom. When Christ-followers operate out of this identity, then becoming whole and free from destructive labels is the result.

Choose to Lose Pastor Dan Boal

All Out War: Investigating Spiritual Warfare Pastor Tom Lundeen
3/16/2014 An Unholy Trinity

Before a soldier can be effective in combat…he needs to learn 2 things: Who is my enemy? & Where am I vulnerable? Spiritual warfare involves conflict with the devil and demonic forces, but it also involves the principle of sin within us (“the flesh”), and the principle of sin in our society (“the world”).

All Out War: Investigating Spiritual Warfare Pastor Tom Lundeen
2/9/2014 Stretch Us Why?

3/24/2013 [The Cross & My Heart] The Cross Means Mission

The cross is also God’s great invitation to the world. Jesus never intended His cross to become a campfire that Christ-followers sit around to warm themselves, He did intend His cross to light a wildfire in Christ-followers to send us out into a broken and needy world.
