    Beyond a Reasonable Doubt
    When you have questions about Jesus and the Christian faith, are you an honest or dishonest doubter? What we find in the Bible is that testing everything, to make sure of what’s true, is a good thing, and that the process often results in people coming to faith. Although we cannot see and know everything about God, we are not expected to have a blind faith. Instead, we discover that facts are the basis of our faith.

    Unity that Can Save the World
    Have you ever gone to God in fervent prayer, perhaps when one of your loved ones faced a potentially life-threatening or life-altering situation? Did you beg and plead with God for healing because you were so worried and scared? That's a natural response, but as we see in John chapter 17, Jesus knew for a fact that He was approaching the time of His death, yet He did not ask God to rescue Him and spare Him from death. Instead, He focused on God's mission and He prayed for other people much more than Himself.

    Why Love Matters Most
    In this week's message from our John series, Troy discusses sections of chapter 13, with an emphasis on the "new" command from Jesus to love one another. As we discover , the command to love each other is not new, in and of itself; what appears to be new is the way we are to love, namely, as Jesus has loved us.

    That’s All I Know (and That’s Enough)
    As we discover from the story of Jesus healing a man who was born blind in John chapter 9, you cannot argue with the genuine, significant change that God produces in peoples’ lives. It’s like going from blindness to sight, and it’s no less miraculous.

    Do Your Part and Watch God Do His
    Continuing in our series through the Gospel of John, Troy shares the story of Jesus feeding the 5,000, while reminding us that God is able to take what we offer, however small it seems, and do something miraculous with it. Nothing we face here on this earth is too big for God.

    A Faith from Here to Eternity
    In today's passage from our 1 John series, where Jesus emphasizes the necessity of being "born again," we discover that to see Jesus and His truth means more than observing what He did or hearing what He said; it means a change of identity. And our new birth changes everything. Our old lives are gone and we learn to walk in a new life. NOTE: The last few minutes of sermon audio are lost due to a technical difficulty.

    Series: Standalone
    Troy discusses our journey to become more like Jesus, and how we need to replace the wrong things in our lives with the right things.

    The Only One Who Knows Our Hearts
    Continuing in our series through the Gospel of John, Troy explains that although Jesus knows every single one of our thoughts, words, and actions, He died on the cross for us anyway. He took the punishment that we deserved and put it on Himself. And it’s critical that we understand the love and grace that God has shown us, despite our brokenness, because we need to show love and grace to other people, despite their brokenness.
