Faith can be tough stuff, because faith always traverses the frontier where light meets dark. It’s too tough a road to go it alone, and in fact, we can’t. We shouldn’t even try, because you don’t have to. We are here for you. And you’re here for us too.

Some of us revel in our yesterdays. Some of us would rather forget. And some of us can’t. But all of us need to know yesterday’s importance so that we can set out towards tomorrow today.
Sometimes we mistakenly think that other people should grow our faith for us, but they can’t. They can’t for the same reason they can’t train for the marathon for us. It’s our race to run. It’s our faith to work out. And it’s God’s pleasure to work in us.
Christian faith is faith in Jesus. So that means that you need to know him. Jesus, as he really is. Jesus, maybe, as you never knew him. Jesus, who never stops surprising us.

It’s a lot easier to get there if you know that you’ll make it, and Philippians 1 promises you that you will. That’s faith. The question is, how do we know it - and how do live like it's true?
God's Spirit in us? Yes! God's Spirit is in us, and he bears fruit in our lives. Check it out here.
We talked about the meal, the cross, the grave, and the resurrection - but there is one more day that changed the world. In this week's message, we discover that together so that we can go and share the good news of Jesus with the world around us!
Nothing lasts forever, but Easter tells us that Jesus does. And that fact changes the entire world, not least of all yours. Watch this and see for yourself!
Where can you go that is outside of God’s reach? The Psalms promise us that there is no such place. Jesus proves it true in his death. He took on our death so that we could be assured of life. This really changes things. In fact, it changes everything.
