Heaven is Not Our Home.jpg

It has been ingrained into the thinking of many Christians that this world is not our home, we're just passing through. For years it has been reinforced through books, sermons, songs, etc. But does the Bible actually teach that? And if that's true, what does it say about the way we live now and how we treat the planet? In Heaven is Not Our Home (And Why That's a Good Thing), Pastor David helps us to see that heaven is coming to earth and that our real hope is in the resurrection of the dead and the renewal of all things.

Patterns of Light (4 of 4)

Sermon Title: The End of Night
Scripture Reading: Isaiah 60:19; Revelation 22:1-4, 22:1-5; Romans 13:11-12

Patterns of Light.jpg

The final images of light recorded in the Bible appear in the eschatological visions of the new age in the book of Revelation. A look into God’s throne room reveals that he is pure light. And at the end of this apocalyptic vision of the future, we are told that darkness will come to an end and that night will be no more, for the bright brilliance of God’s glory will give light to the new world. In The End of Night (4 of 4), Pastor David concludes our series with a message of hope for the future.

The Real You

Sermon Title: The Real You
Scripture Reading: Luke 5:1-11; 2 Corinthians 5:15-17; Galatians 2:20

There are many things in life and in our nature that have shaped who we are in the present, and those forces are always at work on us. It can all be overwhelming to say the least.

So who are you, really?

The Scriptures teach that we are made in God's image, but we're broken and not as we should be. This is a truth that is hard for the world to accept. While our culture largely wants to affirm everything about us, God wants to re-form us according to a new identity in Christ.

In The Real You, Pastor David calls us to embrace the truth of who we are in Christ as good news and then live into a life of transformation. Listen to David and view the slides here.
