An Invitation to Our Women's Conference

December 22, 2014 by: Alyssa Poblete

As a woman who serves in full-time vocational ministry I consistently talk with women who are broken and hurting. Marriages are struggling, women are gossiping, children are rebelling, sin is persisting...the list goes on. I consistently find myself thinking, “I just can’t keep up.” There are so many needs that I often come home at night feeling overwhelmed and confused about how to use my time most effectively for God’s kingdom....

10 Ways to Minister Well at a Small Church

October 30, 2014 by: Robert Jacobsen |0 Comments

We live in a day and age where many assume that if you are ministering well in a small church, it won’t stay small for long. Many see small churches as a stepping stone or a low rung on a ladder that must be climbed up for “bigger” or “better” or even “greener” pastures. I don’t buy it.... Keep Reading

Many have sought to write off the fear in this passage by calling it “reverence” for God, and by calling reverence for God “respect.” If that’s the case though, why tremble? I have never seen a person tremble out of respect, but I have seen many tremble out of fear.... Keep Reading

Where Do You Get Your Truth?

October 1, 2012 by: Jasmine Crystal Wong

In many Christian circles, there is an abundance of resources going around--"from new hot topics to the latest book or sermon series. In all of this, we may forget to go back to the all-powerful, transforming Word of God that is sharper than any two edged sword (Hebrews 4:12). Sometimes we do not intentionally neglect it, but rather we begin looking to other ‘Christian’ things instead.... Keep Reading

What Does Nicea Have to Do with Geneva?

September 28, 2012 by: Thaddeus Williams

When it comes to the debate about God’s sovereignty, there is a common caricature that goes something like this: Calvinists are all about God’s power while non-Calvinists are all about God’s love. Some scholars have even branded their non-Calvinism “relational theism” to set their loving God apart from the relationally challenged power-God of Calvinism. Sure Calvinists will also talk about God’s love, and non-Calvinists about God’s power, but wedged between them seems to be the question of which attribute of God is more ultimate--"power or love?...

September 12, 2012 by: Andy Guastaferro

Romans 1:16 has always been one of those verses that calls for a particular pause in my life. I know the God I believe in, and I am overwhelmingly thankful for my new life in Christ. And yet there is often a conviction in not responding to others in a way that truly reflects the joy that has welled up in my heart.... Keep Reading

Christian, You Are Already a Man After God's Own Heart

August 17, 2012 by: Dustin Smetona

Most of us, at one point or another, have pointed to 1 Samuel 13:14 and Acts 13:22 zealously declaring we should be men after God's own heart just like David! This is a mistake.... Keep Reading
