Religions often keep people distant from God, but God has something better planned for you.

Living in a Broken World
We live in a world that appears broken and damaged. Why is it that way and what can we do about it?
The Truth Will Set You Free
Truth is freeing, but how do we find the truth in the complex world that we live in?
Life changes, we change and our dreams change. That is a normal part of this existence. If you can’t find the hope today that doesn’t mean there won’t be hope tomorrow.
After Christmas – The In-between
So, here we are, after Christmas, but before Easter. After salvation, but before heaven. We have the Good News that Christ is born. We have the truth of His salvation, but we live in the reality of our daily lives. Living every day in this in-between place of a fallen world and yet desiring so much for everything to be made right and just and true.
The Best News!
The Christmas story is essential, but hearing it over and over again can cause us to miss the truth of the Good News that is contained in the story.
The Dead End of Trespassing in Other People’s Offenses
Are you trapped by an unforgiven offense? It can be even worse when it isn’t your own.
Three Lies of Sin
This is how sin begins. In the small dark corners of our life, where things are seemingly innocent and easily justified to an all to willing heart. “There’s nothing wrong with…”
Hope in Dark Days
Our hope is not in a vaccine, or in a president or even in a church or Christian leader. Our hope is in God alone and in His son, Jesus Christ. When we place our hope there, we can find joy and peace, even in the face of 2020. Spread that hope to your family and friends. Spread the truth of God’s Word, don’t spread fear, despair and division.
Help My Unbelief
Despite all of that truth, which we have been exposed to over and over, many of us would be right to echo the words of this father in response to Jesus, “I believe; help my unbelief!” (9:24b:ESV) When we come to Christ in faith and join His Kingdom, we do believe. The Gospel means accepting the miracle of who Christ is, what He has done and what that means for us. We believe in that truth and we move forward in our life with Christ, hopefully growing in Him along the way. And yet, we don’t believe. We are sometimes afraid to pray for God to act in our lives and the lives of others. We are challenged with the doubt of a God that might not be big enough to provide for the circumstances that we find ourselves in.
