Persistence — Faith, Part 1

Faith is central to Christianity. But what is it? What does it look like? Jesus taught a series of lessons about faith to help us understand what kind of faith God desires. Pastor Luke teaches from Luke 18:1–8 in “Persistence,” the first message in a new series “Faith.”

Since the Covid-19 pandemic began, we’ve been wondering about the “new normal.” What will the new normal be like? How will we know when we get there? What should we do in the meantime? Centuries before Christ, God spoke through prophet Jeremiah to encourage people with questions pretty similar to ours. Pastor Luke preaches from Jeremiah 29:1,4–7,10 in “New Normal.”

Brand-New Testament – Part 1

Paul wrote the letters to the church in a Greek town called Thessalonica to encourage people he loved but could not be with. They found what he said was so encouraging, they kept the letter, and circulated to others who needed encouraging. They shared it in turn, and after a couple of centuries of being shared to encourage people, this letter – likely the oldest surviving Christian document – became part of the New Testament. Can it still encourage us today? Pastor Luke teaches from Thessalonians 1:1–10 in “Brand-New Testament,” the first message in a new series “Brand-New Testament.”

If we could gather around to hear Jesus talk, the way people did in his earthly ministry, what would he say about the problems of our world?

We can only guess what Jesus would say about racism, for example. But beyond any doubt, the clear teaching he gave us, from the opening of the Hebrew Scriptures to the close of the New Testament, is that Racism is a sin.

Pastor Luke looks at Ephesians 2:10–14 in “The Sin of Racism,” the first message in a new series “Counter Culture.”
