The Longing for Fascination

Watch the full service here July 26, 2020 // This teaching series delves into seven longings intelligently designed into the human heart. The human heart is drawn to fascinating things. God is the most fascinating person in the universe, and He is the only One who can truly fulfill our longing for fascination. Remaining fascinated with God's infinite depth of personality is key to keep from drifting away from Him. Being fascinated with and seeking to understand all of the different aspects of God’s personality occurs only if we study His Word daily.

The last teaching of this series ties together all of the fruit of the Spirit and how it places us in a position of influence to share the Gospel and be heard.

Showing Truth

Watch the full service here July 5, 2020 // This teaching series is based upon the second Greatest Commandment to love others and share the Gospel with them in both truth and love. The first place that we must look to find truth is in God’s Holy Word. If we move away from sharing the truth found in God’s Word, we move away from having the spiritual power to save others. Truth must be given to build others up, not tear them down, so it should never be shared with a critical heart. When we share truth alongside the other fruit of the Spirit, it can be done in a way that recognizes that truth hurts because it exposes sinfulness and self-dependency. Living out our lives in God’s Truth sets
