This week we conclude our sermon series about “New Life In Christ,” i.e., being born again. Our focus in this last installment will be on the afterlife and how being born again affects that. If you’ve ever wondered what will heaven really be like? Or, how could a loving God create a place like hell? […]
The New Testament says that when we are “born again” (i.e., spiritually awakened), we receive an amazing, incredible, miraculous gift called “the Holy Spirit.” What does that mean? And what new possibilities does that open up in my life? This will be the fourth of five installments in our sermon series on “New Life in […]
In our sermon series on “New Life in Christ,” we’ve talked about what Jesus meant when he said “you must be born again” and we’ve talked about the role that grace and faith play in that spiritual birthing process. Now this Sunday we’re ready to discuss what comes next. Once I’ve been spiritually reborn, what […]
This week we continue our Sermon series called “New Life in Christ.” Last week we began by exploring what it means to be “born again.” We saw that Jesus was talking about the necessity of a spiritual awakening within each of us. This week we’ll dig deeper by studying a key New Testament passage that […]

The Bible says that all who believe in Jesus have access the same power that raised Jesus from the dead. But how do we make that real in our lives? On Sunday, we launch a four-week sermon series called Living With Resurrection Power! Don’t miss any Sunday in April as we explore four resurrection principles that could […]
Some of us grew up in religious circles that were harsh and judgmental – good riddance. Having seen how ugly that is, we could easily go to the opposite extreme – anything goes. But that has its own problems. So how does a New Testament believer living in an age of grace find the right […]
Are people watching you? If so, what do they see? What does it really mean to “be a witness” in this world? How can we allow more of Jesus to shine through us? That’s what we’ll explore on Sunday, as we continue our study of the New Testament book of Second Corinthians.
If there’s only one sermon you ever hear, make sure it’s this one. Last Sunday we explored the first half of Jesus’ encounter with the woman at the well in Samaria. We saw how Jesus shattered all kinds of social barriers to engage the Samaritan woman in the single longest dialogue anyone ever had with […]
Lots of Christians are convinced LGBTQ people have no place in the church and will have no place in heaven, because that’s what they’ve always been taught. This Sunday we’ll study a passage of Scripture that powerfully rebuts that negative perspective, as we mark Gay Pride weekend in Indianapolis. Come on out and celebrate God’s […]
This week we’ll conclude our current sermon series by exploring the 9th core characteristic of a Spirit-filled life – self-control. Studies show that our level of self-control – a learned trait – is a stronger predictor of success in life than many other factors, including intelligence. We’ll explore several biblical principles that can help us grow our self-control, […]
