Join us as we continue with our Dug Down Deep Series. This week Pastor Neli talks about being consistency. To be consistent is to be like God. Too often we slip into the habit of convenience but how can we learn to be consistent when no one else is? Let us remain consistent, steadfast, and immovable in our conviction to follow God.
But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.
- 1 Corinthians 15:57-58 (ESV)

Join us as we continue our Dug Down Deep series. This week Pastor Neli describes what it means to wait on The Lord. Like a tree, God has called us to live a life that is deeply rooted in his plans for us. But there are times we need to wait as it reveals your true motives. It builds patience, anticipation, intimacy, and dependency upon God as well as character transformation. How long are you willing to wait on God between his promise and his provision for you?
But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.
- Isaiah 40:31 (ESV)

Join us as we continue our Dug Down Deep series. This week Pastor Neli speaks to us about "The Secret Place". God wants us to come to the secret place where He is because that's where we can become fruitful. God will sometimes make it harder for us to find him in order that we "press in" to find him. If you don’t press into the presence of God in the secret place, other things will press you.
One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to inquire in his temple. For he will hide me in his shelter in the day of trouble he will conceal me under the cover of his tent; he will lift me high upon a rock. And now my head shall be lifted up above my enemies all around me, and I will offer in his tent sacrifices with shouts of joy; I will sing and make melody to the Lord.
- Psalm 27:4-6 (ESV)

Join us as we continue with our Dug Down Deep series. This week Pastor Neli speaks to us about how we can truly enjoy following God. God desires us to come close with a relationship with him. No matter what you’re going through there is a resonant joy in our spirits that know we can overcome any circumstance no matter what the weather of life may bring our way. If we expect God to show up we live in a place of enjoyment. Let us glorify God in all that we do and let's start enjoying Him.
As it is, I rejoice, not because you were grieved, but because you were grieved into repenting. For you felt a godly grief, so that you suffered no loss through us. For godly grief produces a repentance that leads to salvation without regret, whereas worldly grief produces death.
- 2 Corinthians 7:9-10 (ESV)

Join us as we continue with our current series, Dug Down Deep. Henry Peterson talks about David's cry for help in the cave of Adullam. When you’re in a tight spot of trouble or isolation, who are the people that come looking for you? God answered David's prayers by sending his family and friends. Pray to God for righteous people to come around you. Let nothing take your focus away from focusing on God.
David departed from there and escaped to the cave of Adullam. And when his brothers and all his father's house heard it, they went down there to him. And everyone who was in distress, and everyone who was in debt, and everyone who was bitter in soul, gathered to him. And he became commander over them. And there were with him about four hundred men.

Join us as we continue our new series, "Dug Down Deep". This week Pastor Neli teaches us practical ways on how we can all go deeper into God's word by breaking down scripture, take our time, meditate, and pause for reflections and for prayer.
“For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven and do not return there but water the earth, making it bring forth and sprout, giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater, so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.
- Isaiah 55:10-11 (ESV)

Join us as we begin a new series, "Dug Down Deep". Pastor Neli will talk about digging deeper so our intimacy with God is so solidified that we will not be shaken. What is that one thing we want to pursue? There are times where distracting get in the way of realizing the true destiny God has planned for us. There should not be anything that distracts you from pursuing God.
One thing I ask from the Lord, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple.

Join us this week as we welcome our international guest speaker, Pastor Jojo Henson. Pastor Jojo is a leading teacher of the prophetic teams in the Every Nation church movement and speaks to us about the story of Gideon. Like Gideon, do you go through life and make conclusions about God? It takes faith to see ourselves the way God sees us. When God calls us to do great things for him, he doesn’t look at our present situation, he sees what we can actually do. It takes faith to do what God has called us to do. Our strength lies in the fact that God is with us.
When the angel of the Lord appeared to Gideon, he said, “The Lord is with you, mighty warrior." “Pardon me, my lord,” Gideon replied, “but if the Lord is with us, why has all this happened to us? Where are all his wonders that our ancestors told us about when they said, ‘Did not the Lord bring us up out of Egypt?’ But now the Lord has abandoned us and given us into the hand of Midian.” The Lord turned to him and said, “Go in the strength you have and save Israel out of Midian’s hand. Am I not sending you?”
- Judges 6:12-14 (NIV)

Join us today as we welcome a very special guest speaker – Pastor Jim Laffoon! Pastor Jim is a leading teacher and prophet in the Every Nation church movement and brings us a word today about the power of worship. One of the keys to the harvest in our city is the type of worship where touching the heart of God is a lifestyle of spending time in God's presence. The true power of your worship life is a passion, a purity, and a pattern of touching the heart of our God in worship.
And this conversion of Gentiles is exactly what the prophets predicted. As it is written: ‘Afterward I will return and restore the fallen house of David. I will rebuild its ruins and restore it, so that the rest of humanity might seek the Lord, including the Gentiles — all those I have called to be mine. The Lord has spoken — he who made these things known so long ago.’
- Acts 15:15-18 (NLT)

Join us as we conclude our RE series. This week Pastor Neli speaks about Reconciliation. There is diversity in the image of God when He made us man and woman. God never intended us to be of many races. We were created in the image of God but over time we have split up into different ethnicities. Biblically there is only one race - the human race. We need to raise our awareness so we can be ministers of reconciliation to draw people back to the original intent.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation.
- 2 Corinthians 5:17-19 (ESV)
