A Prayerful Church is a Powerful Church
Prayer is a tremendous privilege given to God's children.  Yet, often the simple act of talking to God can be so difficult.  This week Jesus shows us several aspects of prayer.  In the process, we discover several ways that our prayer life might be being blocked.

    Faith Is More Than What You Think
    Faith is more than what you think.  Often people assume if they just have the right theology about God, then they have faith.  But, faith is so much more.  Jesus shows us that faith is a deep, abiding relationship with God that changes the way a person thinks and acts completely.

    Money Is a Miserable Master
    What is the guiding principle of your life?  For what are you striving?  What defines your happiness?  In this message, Jesus shows us that it is easy to get our sights focused on the wrong things.  Sometimes it seems impossible for us to escape.  But with God - all things are possible.

    Empty Hands
    How does a person enter the kingdom of God?  Is it by keeping rules and by being a successful person?  Or is it something that can only be received?  Jesus shows us that salvation is a gift.  And a gift must be received with empty hands.

    One Flesh
    Marriage represents God's relationship with His Church.  It is a spiritual union that goes far beyond the worldly purposes of companionship and procreation.  Instead, Jesus shows us that God has a much higher purpose in mind - namely using marriage as a means of demonstrating His never-ending, always pursuing, ever-forgiving love for His Bride, the Church.

    Separate From What Separates
    God wants there to be nothing between us and Him.  He knows that our highest joy is found when we remove things from our lives that separate us from Him.  In today's text, Jesus shows us that we should not delay in separating from anything that separates us from the abundant life God wants us to have.

    Be Last to Be First
    What would the world look like if everyone saw serving others to be the highest honor?  What would happen if pride was not longer present in society?  This week Jesus shows his disciples that the only path to honor in God's kingdom is to seek to be last.  Christians are called to practice humility and to put one another first.  But, what does true biblical humility entail?

    The Old Has Gone
    There is much confusion in our world today - both inside the church and outside - as to what Christianity teaches.  Many think that Christians teach a system of rules that make people right with God.  But then they don't keep the rules - especially some of those seemingly strange rules at the beginning of the Bible.  What's up with that?  This message explores the true teaching of Christianity and clarifies the difference between the Old Testament Law and the New Testament Law of Love in Christ.

    Taking Up Our Cross
    Life is gained when it is lost.  Jesus teaches us that true life comes only when we forsake all claims to comfort, status, material wealth, prestige, relationship harmony, or personal safety.  Indeed, true life comes when one is willing to die rather than turning from following Jesus.  This teaching explores the implications of such a life - and looks at some real world examples of Christians laying down their lives as martyrs in service to Jesus.
