Ignite!: Ignite Unity

By Brad Quiring on November 20, 2016

When Jesus moves through his church, things will be lit. Change can bring some uncertainty. Following God's commands sometimes isn't as clear to some as it is to others.

Ignite!: Igniting a Vision

By Brad Quiring on October 30, 2016

Igniting through Vision, Acts 10:1 – 23. When Jesus moves in His Church, something will be lit. Two righteous followers of God. Good men. Complete strangers to one another, yet intimately known by God. Jesus brought them together through powerful visions.

By Brad Quiring on August 7, 2016

Lesson in Restoration, John 21:15-19. Have you ever failed someone? Have you ever broken a promise? Has your failure to keep your word caused pain and hardship to that person?

Community: Community of Good News

By Kevin Trembley on October 18, 2015

We highly value intentional evangelism and discipleship. The bad news is that because of our sin, we are without hope and without God, separated from him for all eternity. The good news is that Jesus died to pay for our sins and God, in his grace, has given us eternal life with him and hope for today through faith in...

It All Counts: The Invitation: 1

By Brad Quiring on May 24, 2015

Jesus died for the forgiveness of all sins. God loved the whole world. When we accept the invitation to believe these truths by faith, we move from death to life. From enemies of God to his children. From Hell to Heaven. And it’s all for ourselves. You’re “in” because someone gave you the invitation. What would happen if...
