How to love other people might sound basic and simple and something we understand, but I would wager that if we think about our day to day interactions or how we think about or treat certain people, that we could all stand to improve in this area. In this message from Philippians 1, we explore how knowing Jesus helps us to love better. Listen below!

We Are Your Beloved (Sermon Audio)


There’s a little bit of mystery around the passages in The Song of Solomon, with essentially two parallel interpretations. In this message from The Song of Solomon chapter 2, we see both an expression of what love looks like in marriage, and a great image of how God wants to relate with us.

Jesus and the Crowds (Sermon Audio)


Jesus’ disciples repeatedly saw that His compassion for people exceeded their own.

Hope in God in the Midst of Suffering (Sermon Audio)


Suffering is a reality of life that we do not “escape” by following Jesus. However, how we go through suffering or what we do in the midst of suffering can be and should be different for those who follow Christ. In this message from Lamentations 3, we explore how to have hope in God when we are suffering. Listen below!

The Golden Rule (Sermon Audio)

Category : Recent Sermons


Scripture is sometimes said to be summarized by the “Golden Rule” — sometimes stated as “love your neighbor as yourself” or “do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”

Doing this entails radical sacrificial love, but what we’ve done as a society is turned it more into a pithy maxim, more akin to “be nice to each other.” In this message from 1 Samuel we re-examine the Golden Rule and what it means to live it out. Listen to the audio below!
