Join us today as we continue our Great Faith series. Pastor Neli talks about the great faith of Moses and how he responded in an environment of turmoil. There will come a time where you will reach a fork in the road and understand you can either choose to follow God with everything that you have or you choose to follow after what this world has to offer. When the pressure is on do you trust in God or do you trust in the world-system? You need to leave behind that which could take your attention from God. For Moses, that was Egypt. What is your Egypt today?
By faith Moses, when he was grown up, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter, choosing rather to be mistreated with the people of God than to enjoy the fleeting pleasures of sin. He considered the reproach of Christ greater wealth than the treasures of Egypt, for he was looking to the reward. By faith he left Egypt, not being afraid of the anger of the king, for he endured as seeing him who is invisible.

Join us as we continue with our Great Faith series. This week Pastor Neli compares our motives. Are we cultivating an environment of faithfulness for others or are we building up expectations just to let them down? There may have been expectations that you’ve had but you come across situations of disappointment. Like Abraham, we are far from perfect. God entrusts great purpose to imperfect people. What do you trust when the pressure is on?
That is why it depends on faith, in order that the promise may rest on grace and be guaranteed to all his offspring—not only to the adherent of the law but also to the one who shares the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all, as it is written, “I have made you the father of many nations”—in the presence of the God in whom he believed, who gives life to the dead and calls into existence the things that do not exist.

Join us as we continue our Great Faith series. This week Pastor Tina helps to shine a light on a different perspective of what Noah really had to go through. Noah faced great challenges, but he also had great faith in hearing and trusting God. The ability to hear God’s voice is directly proportional to the intensity of how close and often we walk with God. Do you believe God is doing an amazing testimony in your life?
By faith Noah, being warned by God concerning events as yet unseen, in reverent fear constructed an ark for the saving of his household. By this he condemned the world and became an heir of the righteousness that comes by faith.
- Hebrews 11:7 (ESV)

Join us as we continue our Great Faith series. Have you ever taken time out to ever think about where you are in life right now? Have you created an environment in faith to enjoy God in everything you do? Faith needs an environment for it to be cultivated. An environment of faith is stirred up in praise. God hates it when we shrink back but loves those who have faith. God responds to faith. How do you create an environment of faith?
Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. For by it the people of old received their commendation. By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible.
- Hebrews 11:1-3 (ESV)

Join us as we continue with our Great Faith series. This week Pastor Neli draws examples from the past and reflects on the Book of Hebrews when he teaches us to not shrink back. The former days are nothing compared to where God has you. A lot of the ways we live right now are based on the decisions we have made. Some of the hardships we experience are consequences of the decisions we have made. Make the right decisions based on your circumstances in order to glorify God. Don’t shrink back but instead believe in God’s promises
For, “Yet a little while, and the coming one will come and will not delay; but my righteous one shall live by faith, and if he shrinks back, my soul has no pleasure in him.” But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who have faith and preserve their souls.
- Hebrews 10:38-39 (ESV)

Join us today as we start the new year with a new series, Great Faith. Pastor Neli talks about how we can start the year on the right foundations by first asking the questions, “Where are we?” and “Where is God?”If we are going to be vessels of great faith we need to be comfortable in the hands of our God who stretches us, and molds us, and sculpts us into the shape of things to come. Will you choose to follow God no matter where His word directs you. Trust in the lord.
“Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established.”
- Proverbs 16:3 (ESV)

Join us as we conclude our Dug Down Deep series. This week Pastor Neli poses the question, "Are we living or are we breathing to death?". We all have the same 24 hours per day in life, but it's how we choose to use that time to find fulfillment that sets us apart from one another. Life is meant to be enjoyed. What's on the throne of your life that's fulfilling? Be fulfilled by God and not by the things of God.
Then I considered all that my hands had done and the toil I had expended in doing it, and behold, all was vanity and a striving after wind, and there was nothing to be gained under the sun. So I turned to consider wisdom and madness and folly. For what can the man do who comes after the king? Only what has already been done.
- Ecclesiastes 2:11-12 (ESV)

Join us as we continue our Dug Down Deep Series. In this Christmas season, Pastor Neli speaks about The Unwanted Gift. The child Jesus Christ, the ultimate gift from God. A gift is something that is received. A gift is free and is thoughtful. A child speaks of dependency and vulnerability. It may not have been the gift the people at the time wanted, but certainly was the gift the people needed.
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
- Isaiah 9:6 (ESV)

Join us as we continue our Dug Down Deep series. Today we have our Every Nation Campus Minister Mark Dellit speaking to us about the parable of the lost sheep. Have you ever thought about leaving your 99 to go after the one? Leave your issues, your problems, your fears, and your excuses at the door and dig down deep with God. We can dig down deep with God when we put others first, reach out to others, and have faith in the One who came after us when we were lost.
Just so, I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance.
- Luke 15:7 (ESV)
December 9, 2018
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)
