“Where Is Your Faith?”

Ok, so we have been in a big series, that started all the way back in the beginning of the year and is coming to an end right here around Easter, and I think it has been absolutely awesome.  We’ve been looking at the things that really block us from this life and life to the full that Jesus came to provide us…you know the life I’ve been describing as a life with freedom, victory, and power.  It’s . . .

Eight Questions That Reveal Your Faith Level

Our question for you: What is your Kryptonite? Everyone knows Superman. He was unreal. He had so much strength, so many super powers. Faster than a speeding bullet. More powerful than a locomotive. X-ray vision. Inferred eyes. Nothing could stop him except, kryptonite. Kryptonite was the one thing that stole his strength. In this series we shared that spiritually, you are like Superman or Superwoman. What God has given you is unreal. God has given you His grace . . . Read More »

How you know your faith is dead

It’s Christmas. Christmas is a celebration of when God entered earth in the form of a baby. What is remarkable about this story is that God didn’t hit the reset button. Sin was in the world. Things were getting worse. People rebelled against God. What does God do? He doesn’t hit the reset button. He does something that no one expected. He enters earth. He becomes fully human. He gives up His life for us. God could have . . . Read More »

We Don’t Have the Right Perspective

Welcome to our new series called, ‘I am Second’. The whole point of this series is about transformation. You are going to hear real people share their real stories and how they found transformation. That means they found peace, found healing and were able to break their addictions. I want to start with what scripture says. In everything you do, put God first, and he will direct you and crown your efforts with success. Don’t be conceited, sure . . . Read More »

What Are You Missing Out On?

So we have been rolling along through our big summer series studying one of the most profound and popular sermons ever preached…Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount.  I have to tell you this series has been such a big deal to me in my own personal life.  I have been amazed at how as we study God’s word just how much it applies directly into my everyday life.  Whether it’s how I respond to people, or as I walk . . .

He Felt It Too

So we are walking our way through a series on Emotionally Healthy Relationships which has been really meaningful to me…and I wonder how you are doing with all of this stuff so far?  I think for so many of us we maybe wouldn’t make the connection between our emotions and our spiritual journeys but it is so important.  This is why Pete Scazzero would go as far as to say that you cannot ignore your emotions and grow . . .

Trusting, Hoping, and Loving Even When It Doesn’t Make Sense

You know last week was a really big deal to me.  I felt like that subject really ramped the intensity level up in this series as we started to really dive into some very important thoughts.  I don’t know about you but that talk and that subject really resonated with me.  If you remember there were some foundational thoughts we needed on the front end of that talk.   Mostly I needed you to recognize that we are opposed.  That we do have an . . .

Risky Business

So today we continue our journey into this series called Different.  The whole idea is to be different spiritually from our encounter with Jesus.  Which is a big time focus for us because when we are different it means that God’s love is in us, flowing through us, and transforming us.  You see I it means that things are getting real, and we like the real thing here at MRC!  Over the last few weeks we have watched . . .

Believe It or Not…Faith Is a Big Deal

So last week we started a big series that is going to take us all the way to Easter, the series is called “Different.”  And the whole idea is that we are going to make a commitment to being different in 2018 and beyond and if you think about it, what we are really doing is looking to see you build a relationship with Jesus that leads to actual change in your life.  So the idea of being . . .

Walking Through Life Blindfolded

We just opened a new series called ‘Different.’ We started last week and explained the foundation of what it means to be a disciple of Christ. The Bible says this; 16 Going through the motions doesn’t please you, a flawless performance is nothing to you. 17 I learned God-worship when my pride was shattered. MSG Psalms 51:16-17 It’s not about going through the motions. It’s not about a perfect performance. The foundation to being a disciple of Christ . . . Read More »
