Jill Briscoe will freely admit that even as a Christian, she struggles with worry—and she’s not alone. Battling against worry and reclaiming the energy and abundant life that worry steals from us is a daily battle for so many people. Are you ready to learn how to rule worrisome situations and not be ruled by them?

In this message, Jill shares the turning point in her life when she finally felt the worry war pivot in her favor—and it had a lot to do with studying the story of Joshua and the battle of Jericho.

Don't Worry, Part 2

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Worry-LESS

Mark Twain said, “My life has been full of many problems, most of which never happened!” He presumably looked to the future with a degree of trepidation and spent a lot of time being anxious about things that actually never happened. Does that sound like something you do, too?

Another great author, the Apostle Paul, said that no matter what happens—don’t be anxious about anything. 

In this message, Stuart looks to Scripture to identify the formula for becoming worry-free, no matter what circumstance we are facing—or think we’ll have to face.

Do Not Be Afraid

Pete Briscoe

Series: Worry-LESS

Are you a fearful person? Are there circumstances in your life that make you anxious? There’s plenty of evidence that worry and anxiety take a toll on us physically and emotionally, but often the experts’ solutions only deal with surface symptoms. Meanwhile, God tells us: “Do not be afraid!” So how do we do it?

Pete dives into Luke 2:8-10 to reiterate that no matter who you are or what might be weighing you down, there is a place you can find relief from your burdens.

The Father-ness of God

Jill Briscoe

Series: The Fatherhood of God

A bewildered human race is like a man lost in a forest asking, "Father, are you there?" In 1945, at the end of World War 2, Helmut Thielicke, a brilliant theologian, preaching through the Lord's Prayer to what was left of his congregation in the ruins of his church in Stuttgart said, "Everything will be all right so long as we hear His good voice calling to us above the howling of the wolves, above the sound of branches snapping, above the ominous noises around us. God is always there."

A Christian worldview believes in the Fatherhood of God.

Scripture: Luke 11:1 - 11:5

Walking in Truth

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Living the Life

In its early days, the Christian church was very conscious of the struggle for the souls of men and women between “the Spirit of truth and the spirit of falsehood.” In our modern culture, we see dramatically changing attitudes toward truth. But we must recognize that there is such a thing as truth, and there is such a thing as error.

Stop Living Like an Old Covenant Jew, Part 2

In this message, Pete Briscoe explains what we forfeit when we live like Old Covenant Jews rather than New Covenant believers.

Freedom from Guilt and Shame

Pete Briscoe

Series: Better: A New and Living Way

Is there sin in your past that keeps you from being intimate with God? You know you’re forgiven, but your little inner judge keeps bringing your sin to mind. Yes, God hard-wired you with a conscience, but not so you would be forever tormented by your sin. 

In this message, Pete Briscoe talks about finding freedom from the guilt, shame, and embarrassment that comes from sin.

The Promise of Rest

Pete Briscoe

Series: Better: A New and Living Way

Why Is There Persecution?

Pete Briscoe

Why does Jesus allow persecution to happen when he has the authority to stop it? At the time the book of Hebrews was written, new believers were under pressure, some were persecuted for their newfound faith. 

In this message, Pete Briscoe walks us through Scripture to find answers to this timeless question. 

Scripture: Hebrews 2:5 - 2:9

Freedom for Rule-Followers

Pete Briscoe

Series: Better: A New and Living Way

If Jesus is better than angels, and angels brought the Old Testament law to Moses, than Jesus is better than the law, right? It makes sense and we nod in agreement, but how many of us still find ourselves living under the law? Trying so hard to please God by following rules. 

In this message, Pete Briscoe shares the Scripture warning that our salvation might be drifting from us without our realization. He challenges us to move from being church-goers to Christ-knowers.

Jesus' High Rank

Pete Briscoe

Series: Better: A New and Living Way

There are many caricatures of Jesus—some see Him simply as an effective teacher, compassionate advocate, or revolutionary leader. However, He is more than all of these things, and if we fail to recognize His full identity, our faith is incomplete. Do you have a complete understanding of Jesus?

In this message, Pete Briscoe reviews the full and resplendent descriptions of Jesus to help us achieve a complete understanding of who He is.

Jesus Is Better

Pete Briscoe

Series: Better: A New and Living Way

The Characteristics of a Follower, Part 2

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Brave Enough to Follow

He was full of himself, and always the first to talk. He was also passionate, loyal, and hungry to learn. He wasn’t perfect—far from it. In other words, Simon Peter was just like us. It was only when he abandoned his old life to follow Jesus that he began to be transformed. Jesus makes the same offer to us: Leave your old life and follow Me! You may be telling yourself that Jesus can’t love you because you aren’t good enough, don’t know the Bible well enough, or don’t have a spotless past. Look at Peter! You are exactly the kind of person Jesus loves.

We learn in Scripture how God wrestled Jacob to the ground one night and turned him upside down - so he could live right-side up. Jacob became a "prince" with God instead of a pain.

When we're suffering the consequences of our own poor choices; when we're bearing the brunt of someone's vengeance and anger; when we feel absolutely on our own and life is not working out as planned, that's when God will turn up. He wants to walk down the stairway of heaven right into our hearts to make us aware of His personal interest and concern.

Rest Stops, Part 2

Jill Briscoe

Series: The Best of 2017

One of the best known passages in the Bible is Psalm 23. It describes the relationship between a shepherd and His flock, in which He guides them through pastures, hills and dark valleys. In every case, the sheep are content because the shepherd is there, offering protection and comfort. We are the sheep in this story!

Jill teaches that no matter what is happening in our lives, good or bad, the only way we can find true contentment—and even joy—in every situation is by trusting in the Lord, our shepherd, who promises to never leave us. 

Scripture: Psalm 23
