Called to Build

So God will probably never call on you to build an ark. BUT – each of us has a calling, and it might not be what you think. Isaiah, Nehemiah, and Evan Almighty.

No Longer In Charge

Do you believe in God? Most associated with a church would answer with a hearty YES. But what kind of God do you believe in? And if you don’t believe or if you have struggled with your faith in the past – maybe your definition of God was all wrong. Bruce Nolan definitely struggled with an adequate definition of God. But what God did Bruce believe in? What God do YOU believe in? Romans Chapter 1 and clips from Bruce Almighty.

Graduate Sunday 2018

Pastor Doug addresses those graduating in 2018 with a special message to move beyond AVERAGE.  What does the Old Testament character of Jabez show us about following God’s plan for our life?

Hair Today vs Gone Tomorrow

What do you do when your body wants what your heart knows is wrong? Samson had been set apart for a special purpose: a Nazarite from birth. But he wandered from God’s best because he followed his desires. In reality, there’s a little Samson in all of us: going outside of God’s will pursuing things that will simply be gone tomorrow.

Inside-Out vs Outside-In

How does a mediocre life sound?  Does that sound appealing?  Would anyone intentionally enter a mediocre relationship or hire a mediocre employee?  God had set his people apart for something special, and sets US apart for something special as well.  An INSIDE-OUT way of living!

One King vs Another

What happens in a world where everybody does what they want?  The Book of Judges describes a time in the history of God’s people when everyone did their own thing.  In a search for autonomy they did not find freedom – they simply traded one King for another.

Salty Be-Attitude

As we conclude our series on post-Resurrection Christianity, we’ll take a look at Jesus’ most familiar sermon in Matthew 5. We know Christians are to love, we even know how (and who) Christians are to judge. And now: how Christians are to be SALTY!

How the West Was Won

In our post-Easter series, we see the spread of Christianity hinge on Jesus’ commandment to his disciples: love.  But Christianity would also “win the west” based on how they…judged?  Are we supposed to judge?  Isn’t the Bible against that?

The Christians are Coming!!  The Christians are Coming!!

If someone asked you if you were a christian, what would you say? The word ‘christian’ is somewhat undefined and only used 3 times in the New Testament. There is, however, a word used multiple times to describe ‘Jesus-followers’ that is SO well defined that it should challenge us, even terrify us. Sunday kicks off a brand new sermon series that coincides with our Pasadena 40 efforts in the community.

un-BELIEVE-able

Easter Sunday is the biggest celebration of the Christian year!  A story so unbelievable, and it changes EVERYTHING!
 
**A NOTE ON VIDEO QUALITY: A combination of stage lights, Pastor Jon’s Easter suit, bright sunshine, and some odd camera settings make this a very BRIGHT video.**

The Definition of Success

With crowds waving palms and people shouting praises, many at the time might consider “Palm Sunday” Jesus most shining example of success and popularity. But Jesus’ ministry would redefine success, and what it truly means to get ahead.

David: A Better Way

We conclude our series on David with a look at 1 Samuel 25: the story of David, Nabal, & Abigail. There’s the Nabal Way….David’s Way…Your Way…but is there “A Better Way?” Just ask Abigail!

David: Killer Giants

The familiar story of David & Goliath tells us how a young boy became known as the “Giant Killer.” Throughout his life David would also face some “Killer Giants” – giants that can threaten to defeat even the mightiest of warriors.  What did he do when faced with these giants: anger, fear, and isolation.  What you you do?
