Before and After

There is a sign on a lonely Alaskan road that reads, “Choose your rut carefully, you will be in it for miles.” Sometimes, that’s how life feels. The choices you have made have set you in a direction and it feels like there is now no way to change. However, the big message of Easter is that your life doesn’t have to be the way it’s always been. The first Easter changed everything, and because of the resurrection, you can experience that kind of change in your own life.

Impossible to Incredible

This message was shared on April 21, 2019

The greatest truth about the miracle of Easter is that, through the resurrection, Jesus made a way for us to connect to God that was impossible for us to do on our own. Because Jesus rose from the grave, those who should be rejected are embraced by God.


Isolated to Included

God created His children to be connected to each other in spirit and purpose. The reason we are different is so that we can all fulfill the needs of someone else in our community. When we cut ourselves off from community, we rob ourselves of God’s touch and rob the body of our own gifts.


Indefinite to Indisputable

Your salvation was freely given to you. There is nothing you did to earn it, there is nothing special about you that merits it. Your salvation is nothing more than the expression of God’s love for you. Find out how it is impossible to out-sin God's grace.


Complete

Every one of us spends so much time and mental energy wrapped up in how inadequate we are. The more we think about our inadequacies, the more we seem to experience them. What if our pre-occupation with not being enough was the result of believing lies? During the “Complete” series, find out that the process of Christian growth is less about changing into something new than it is about learning how to live out what God has already completed inside the believer.

Enough is Enough

Every one of us spends so much time and mental energy wrapped up in how inadequate we are. The more we think about our inadequacies, the more we seem to experience them. What if our pre-occupation with not being enough was the result of believing lies? In this introduction to the “Complete” series, Pastor Bryon shares that the process of Christian growth is less about changing into something new than it is about learning how to live out what God has already completed inside the believer.


Skeletons in the Closet

If it were not for two things, none of us would struggle with guilt or fear: our past and our future. We experience guilt in the present because of what we have done, and we are afraid of the future because of what we know we will do. In this message, we find out God's prescription for guilt, and how we can trust God to remove our guilt completely.


Fear No More

This message was shared on March 24, 2019

Why is it so much easier to run away from God than run to Him? From the moment we are born, we carry a natural fear of God, and in many ways that's a good thing. But God wants something much greater than our fear, He wants a relationship. In this message, we discover how God makes a way for relationship with Him that is free from fear.


Mi Casa…

The love-based relationship that Jesus established on the cross goes far beyond simple affection. The reason God loves us the way He does is because He sees us in a particular way. In this message, we find out why there is no way that God could ever reject you.


Here Comes Trouble

This message was shared on April 7, 2019

Have you ever looked back upon something you have done and remarked, "I don't know what came over me!" The things that come over are often the most difficult things to overcome. No one of us sails through life without challenges that are greater than our strength. In this message, Pastor Bryon reveals how the cross of Christ turns believers into overcomers.


The Price is Right

This message was shared on April 14, 2019

Why would God trade His Son's life for yours? Why would Jesus sacrifice Himself? Believe it or not, the way you answer these questions has much to do with how you live your life, the choices you make, and the things you chase after. In this message you will discover how much Jesus paid, and how much you are really worth.


Questions Worth Asking

Too often, when presented with hard questions, the church’s answer has been, “You just have to take it on faith.” Contrary to popular belief however, biblical faith is not a blind faith. Christianity never asks you to believe something just because the Bible says it is true. Instead, ours is an evidence-based faith. In this series, come find out that authentic faith does not have to fear facts.

Face to Face

How we view God affects every single area of our lives. It shapes how we feel about Him, how we talk about Him and even how we talk to Him. But God is divine and we’re only human, so how do we discover who He is, how He acts and what He’s like? The best way to get to know God is by looking at the One He sent—Jesus. Through this series we discover that when ordinary people have extraordinary face-to-face encounters with Jesus, their lives are forever transformed.

Greater Than

When you place your faith in anything, you make that thing the foundation for every part of your life. No matter how strong your faith is, it make no difference if the thing in which you place your faith has not substance. In this series through the book of Colossians, we discover that it’s better to have a little faith in something great than a great faith in something worthless.
