We often let the hypocrisy of others influence our political positions and view on issues. Basing our decisions on other people’s hypocrisy is very disorienting. But we’re called to base our life on who God is, not who people aren’t. In our second sermon, Pastor John unpacks several Scriptures to show how God is an “AND” God, we are called to be an “AND” people.

"Who do people say that I am?"
Jesus asked the disciples this question. If he asked us the same question, we might answer that many see him as a mascot for their political agenda. Just like he did with his disciples, Jesus might lean in with us and press, "But who do you say that I am?". As we kick off our series “King Jesus Above All”, Pastor John opens several passages to explore a Christian’s primary political allegiance and what it means to live out dual citizenship in our polarized, partisan cultural moment. You’ll hear about the city of Philippi, the kingdoms of Laos and Vietnam, an American missionary being mocked after 9/11.

Change is hard because its hard to change. As we think about the new year, how do we change the parts of us that we know need changin’? In our last sermon in the Behold + Believe series, Pastor John opens up Matthew 3 to look at the message of John the Baptist and the baptism of Jesus. You’ll hear about people who struggle to change after heart bypass surgery, why psychotherapists have had to rebrand themselves, and three changes that lead to big life change.

Pastor John opens up the story of the star and the wise men. This story, one that many think they know well, but actually don’t, asks us three important questions.

We’re all waiting for something to happen in our lives. We long for some change or to get our hands on some thing. Often we give these changes and things a weight they can never bear, and they fall apart. Pastor John opens up Luke 2 to explore Simeon’s longing and waiting to meet the Messiah, the salvation of God. You’ll hear about the time John met Dan Marino, how God displayed salvation in the ancient world, and the verses that follow John 3:16.
