One of our central values is that God’s absolutes are absolutely good.  And this means that God is knowable … that He has revealed Himself to us in tangible ways, primarily in the person of Jesus Christ, specially in the recorded Scriptures we call the Bible, and evidenced throughout His creation. 
 
When we gather together on Sundays, a major component is teaching from the Bible. We often utilize series or topics to present God’s truth, but the very words of the Bible are our truth and foundation.

Too Good To Be True – S1E4 (Col 2.6-2.15)
Eternity is a reality that doesn't start at some distant time in the future, but one that began with the inception of creation and for each of us when we were born ... we're already in eternity.  And that eternity - my eternity - pivots directly on how I believe about one central idea: who is Jesus?
 
Frankie Valli once famously penned these iconic words: “You’re too good to be true - I can't take my eyes off you ... at long last love has arrived, and I thank God I'm alive.” These words capture that distinct wonder of encountering something SO good that it seems unbelievable, and yet which draws us inexplicably toward it. As we dig into Season One of our Too Good To Be True series, we will discover a reality that is bigger and better than anything we could have hoped to imagine, and is more true than anything else we could ever discover.

    Too Good To Be True – S1E3 (Col 1.24-2.5)
    God wants me to be happy ... and I should ALWAYS be happy, too, right?  Well, the bible makes it clear that while God does want us to be happy (in Him), the problem of sin and suffering is very real.  While we may never fully understand the why's, where's, or how's of pain, we can rest on the powerful truth that there can be very great and glorious good that comes out of suffering.

    What makes something or someone worthy of my loyalty?  What factors are at play that bind me in allegiance to a cause or a person?  Episode 2 in our present series demonstrates that we serve that which is supreme in our lives ... and that there is someone supreme over all others that deserves our allegiance and loyalty.

    Rewind / FAST Forward 2018 (Week 1)
    As the New Year begins, we look back on some of what God has done in and through our church.  But we also look ahead to what He has in store for us in the days coming. We live in a sliver of history that sees 7.6 billion people alive who all need the hope and life that can only be found in Jesus.  What would it look like if we lived out that reality in our everyday lives?

    Light of the World – Week 6
    If we look around us, this world can seem pretty dark. The answer is to find light in the darkness ... Jesus is the light that overcomes the dark, and that’s what makes Christmas the most wonderful time of the year. It’s not  because of what’s happening but because of what happened, not because of who is with us but because of who is for us.
     
    This morning, we look ahead to the final result of what it means to walk in the Light that came to this world 2000 years ago - and it is this simple truth:  once I've encountered Jesus in a real and authentic way, cannot stay the same as I was before.
