Where is Your Road Taking You?

Date: April 9, 2023 | Speaker:

Have you ever been making good time on a trip, but didn’t realize you were on the wrong road? That’s not a big problem when you’re in a car, but if you’re on the wrong road of life it will have eternal consequences. When it comes to life, remember this — what determines your destination tomorrow ‌is the direction you choose to go in today. We’re all on a road to somewhere, and one day that road will come to an end. You will either find yourself exactly where you wanted to end up, or you’ll be somewhere you never intended to go. Your eternal destiny is in the balance. So, where are your choices taking you?

The Grace of Jesus in Our Moments of Doubt

Date: April 4, 2021 | Speaker:

The events of this past year have filled the hearts of many people around the world with fear. Some Christians feel ashamed that their faith has wavered during these difficult times. But in the Bible we see another group of people who were wrestling with doubts and fear, and we see the extraordinary grace that Jesus extended to them. If you’re struggling today, you need to come and receive the grace that Jesus longs to give to you.

Easter Fool or Easter Faith?

Date: April 12, 2020 | Speaker:

Some people find it difficult to believe in the resurrection of Jesus Christ. To them, it fits in the same category as the Tooth Fairy or the Easter Bunny. So as followers of Christ, are we fools for believing that He actually rose from the dead and that He is still changing lives today, or is there solid evidence for the resurrection?

Reactions to the Resurrection

Date: April 21, 2019 | Speaker:

The followers of Jesus all had different reactions to hearing the news that He had risen from the dead. One wanted to hold onto a feeling to be sure it was true. Others had to see it for themselves or be given physical proof before they would believe. We still struggle with similar reactions in our own Christian walk. Often our faith fluctuates based on how we feel, or by what we can see, but we must be sure our faith is anchored in something much deeper.

The Resurrection Changes Everything

Date: April 1, 2018 | Speaker:

We spend our entire lives trying to keep death at a distance, but still, death is coming for all of us. And death isn’t even the worst news, because after death comes the judgment! So what hope do we have in the face of such frightening events? When Jesus died on the cross and rose to life again, He conquered sin and death, and everyone who trusts in Him will be forgiven of their sins and given eternal life. They will then be able to face death and judgment without fear! Have you trusted in Christ to save you?

Why Easter Matters On Monday

Date: April 16, 2017 | Speaker:

The resurrection of Jesus Christ not only provides hope for us beyond this life, but it also provides peace and strength for our lives right here and now. We can face each day with the certainty of knowing that the risen Christ is Lord of all, and that every moment is under His conquering care.

Easter Hope

Date: March 27, 2016 | Speaker:

Hope is an absolutely essential part of life. Where there’s hope, there’s a will to carry on. But on that first resurrection morning, there was no group more hopeless and defeated than the followers of Christ. Even the empty tomb did not convince them. It was only when they saw their risen Lord that their lives were transformed and they were filled with an unshakable hope. Do you know this resurrection hope?

Jesus Our Substitute

Date: April 5, 2015 | Speaker:

Who could ever imagine sending an innocent person to be beaten and put to death in the place of a violent murderer? Nothing about that would be fair! Yet that is exactly what Jesus did. He died on the cross even though He was innocent, and Barabbas was set free even though he was guilty. Barabbas is a picture of us all — guilty before God and facing His judgement. But Jesus stepped in and became our substitute, paying our debt and setting us free!

How Has the Resurrection Changed You?

Date: April 20, 2014 | Speaker:

An encounter with the risen Savior changes everything. After Jesus rose from the dead, he purposefully and intentionally met with certain people to strengthen and encourage them in some way. Each one, having met their risen Savior, walked away from the encounter, forever changed. Have you encountered the risen Son of God? Have you been forever changed?

The Incredible Exchange

Date: March 31, 2013 | Speaker:

We’ve all been conned into a bad deal or two in our lifetime. But God comes to us this Easter weekend and offers us a deal that is so amazing, it would make no sense to refuse. He is inviting us to become part of the incredible exchange that took place on the cross and the empty tomb 2,000 years ago. That is when God took all of our sinfulness and placed it on Jesus, and God took all of His sinlessness and placed it on us, and for all who accept this offer, God no longer sees us as rotten sinners, He sees us righteous sons. Have you accepted this offer? It is the greatest deal you will ever make, and it will result in the greatest change you will ever experience!

Grace That is Greater Than All Our Sin

Date: April 8, 2012 | Speaker:

We have all done things in our lifetime that we know are wrong. Sadly, many people go through their entire life carrying the guilt and shame of things from their past, never feeling worthy, loved or accepted by God. But because Jesus died on the cross and rose again, we can break free from a life of guilt by receiving the forgiveness and grace He offers to us. Regardless of who you are or what you’ve done, God’s grace is greater than all our sin, and you can receive that grace today!
