Speaking for God Who Became Like Us
In this week's message from our 1 John series, Troy reminds us that we are ambassadors and everything we say and do is important because of the King we represent, and that’s Jesus. Our lives need to demonstrate an authentic faith; when people look at us, they should say, “That life is different from the rest, and if that's what Christianity is, I want that!”

    Love is Life that Never Ends
    In this week's message from our 1 John series, Troy discusses what ultimately demonstrates that we belong to Jesus: We love God and we love people. Followers of Jesus are clearly identified not by their size, or shape, or color, but by the practice of genuine love. In some cases, this may involve “dying” for our brothers and sisters; more often, it’s probably “living” for them through serving.

    The Mirror of God: Coming into Focus
    Continuing in our series through 1 John, Troy explains how we “come into focus” the more we look into God's Word, and we see what needs to be fixed or changed in our lives. We also have the hope that we will be like Jesus when He returns. And when we’re motivated by that hope, we will work toward the purity that we see in Jesus Himself.

    Wanting Forever More Than Today
    In this week's message from our 1 John series, Dean shares what the Bible teaches us about truly loving God, who is eternal, more than the things of this world, which are temporary and passing away.

    She Never Had a Warm Meal
    Series: Standalone
    For this year's Mother's Day message, Troy explains how great moms demonstrate the agape love that’s not an emotion, but a decision. It’s the deliberate love that we choose to show, no matter what, and it’s demonstrated through action. It’s choosing to disregard ourselves purely for the benefit of others. He also encourages each one of us to obey God and follow the example of great moms by growing in the areas of love, grace, acceptance, and forgiveness.

    Real Love is Meaning What You Say
    Continuing in our 1 John series, Troy shares what the Bible tells us, that if we say we know Jesus, but do not obey Him, we are liars and the truth is not in us. On the other hand, when we do obey Jesus, we can be sure that we know Him, and have fellowship with Him. It's not that the more we obey, the more God loves us; however, our love for God and our willingness to do what He asks of us go hand-in-hand.

    Proof of Light in the Darkness
    To kick off our new series through 1 John, Troy reminds us that we need to love other people who follow Jesus, but we also need to know that our love for one another is our best witness to people in the world. Troy also reassures us that there was proof that Jesus really became a man, because John and others experienced Him with their senses, including their sight, hearing, and touch. In addition, John shows us that God is light, not the light, or a light, but light itself.

    Keep Going (We’re Almost There)
    Series: Standalone
    In this standalone message, Troy encourages us not to give up on our faith (or anything that's important to us). When we're discouraged, and even feeling as though we're in a pit of despair, it's worth it to continue on because our faith affects other people, our standing with God, and our story.

    A Wasted Life: When Hope is Not Enough
    For this year's Resurrection Sunday message, Troy encourages us with the fact that even though we may need to experience what it’s like to have little or no hope, we can also discover that Easter is about more hope than we can handle. The power that rose Jesus from the dead not only changes our lives right now, but also gives us an incredible hope beyond the grave, where eternity is far beyond anything we can imagine.
