Telling the Right Story About God
Why does God command us to be careful how we use His name? Why would He punish people who take His name in vain? In this week’s message from our series through the Ten Commandments, Dean answers these questions. He also teaches us that a name signifies one’s character, reputation, and authority. Therefore, when we misuse the name of God, we are not telling the right story about Him. We also need to remember that we misuse God’s name with our actions, such as hypocrisy, an ungodly lifestyle, praying for our own benefit, and praying without believing.

    There is No Plan B
    Series: Radical
    In our latest message from the Radical series, Dean discusses God's plan to make salvation possible to a dying world, and why our going out into the world as Christians is urgent, not optional. He explains how every single person needs a Savior and how each person can be saved by responding to God's offer of salvation. In providing this wonderful offer, God has no "Plan B;" He only has the plan that's in His Word.

He discusses the critical importance of making the jump from youth group to participation in adult services.
