Keep the Faith: GOD Endures
A protective father dies young. A talented teammate moves away. A close friend gets a new job. In a world where nothing–even the best things in life–lasts for long, all you need to do is read Psalm 136 to see what does endure forever.
Keep the Faith: GOD’s Here
When you’re afraid, when you’re ready to flip out, when you need a refuge from fear, just where can you go to find God? Pastor Mike points us to a 3,000-year-old psalm that reminds us we don’t need to go anywhere in order to discover God.
Keep the Faith: GOD’s Enough
When life gets messy (and it will), do you know what to do? In today’s message, Pastor Mike digs into the book of Lamentations and looks at what the prophet Jeremiah says when it seems hope is gone and life is too messed up.
Keep the Faith: GOD Can
God brings the storm and calms it: He wants to give you good things but doesn’t want you to forget him. He allows hardship in your life but doesn’t want you to get angry. How does God maintain this sweet spot of giving you blessings and pain so you keep the faith? With these two truths that Pastor Mike will explore in today’s message.
Keep the Faith: GOD Cares
You may be drinking with the devil and not even know it. Beware because there are three shots the devil would love for you to drink that will shake your faith. Know what these lies are and how to combat them so you can stay sober with God’s truth.
Keep the Faith: GOD Knows
Are you afraid of the wrong things? Are you stressing out over medical diagnoses, money, and what others think about you? Jesus taught that these worries only affect 0.0000000001% of our lives. And instead, we need to focus on what really matters.
Keep the Faith: GOD Reigns!
What do you do when life feels out of control? When, despite your best efforts, you realize that you can’t control anyone or anything? The answer is found in an often-forgotten story from the end of Jesus’ life.
Hope From Israel: You’re Not Perfect, and That’s Okay
Jesus didn’t come for perfect people. So if you’ve made mistakes in your life, don’t panic. As we continue to grapple with these turbulent and divisive times, Pastor Mike reminds us of how God loves all his people—people from all walks of life; imperfect, everyday people like us. This series was recorded earlier this year when Pastor Mike was in Israel.
Hope From Israel: God Gives You a Powerful Weapon
Do you struggle with lies and negative thoughts that seem to have a stronghold over you? You can overcome these strongholds with something much more powerful. Pastor Mike was in Israel right before the COVID-19 pandemic. Here at the ancient city of Megiddo with its massive walls, Pastor Mike reminds us of the truth of God’s Word.
