Resurrection

Resurrection

He is risen indeed! Jesus’ resurrected body makes all the difference. When the women approached the tomb in Mark 16, and found the stone rolled away, the angel instructed them to verify (to experience the empty tomb for themselves) and testify (to spread the word that Jesus was alive and had gone on ahead of […]

Lord

Lord

Romans 10:9 says, “If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” We often, either purposely or subconsciously, modify the scripture to read, “If you confess with your mouth…then you will be saved.” But followers of Jesus […]

Joy

Joy

What is JOY? It is the recognition of Grace, which is favor; completely unmerited, completely un-earned, freely extended toward someone or something that does not deserve it.

Mission & Prayer

Mission & Prayer

Here’s the recap: Mission isn’t scary; it’s really just about inviting our neighbors. What’s right in front of you to do? Who is right in front of you to be in relationship with?

Woman at the Well

Woman at the Well

When we encounter the Lord, who knows all of our history, who knows all about all of our baggage, our best-kept secrets, our perceived realities and the lies we’ve convinced ourselves, Jesus takes our defense mechanisms – our sarcasm, deflected truths, and our verbal spewing – and he redeems it. He exchanges it for living […]
