God Will Keep His Promise

Pete Briscoe

Series: Living in Exile: God Working Behind the Scenes

Have you ever been promised something that seemed too good to be true? As we struggle through trials we can lose sight of God's future promise that someday believers will inherit the Kingdom of God.

In this message Pete Briscoe helps us understand what we've been invited to when we say "yes" to Jesus. Being a child of God doesn't guarantee us a ride on "easy street," but we have reason to be encouraged that the tough ride will be well worth it in the end.

Scripture: Daniel 8

Enduring Persecution

Pete Briscoe

Series: Living in Exile: God Working Behind the Scenes

Do you wonder why persecution against Christians seems to be growing? Do you wonder if the antichrist might be in the world right now?

In this message Pete Briscoe teaches from Daniel 7:15-28 where we get a glimpse of what eternity will be like and why God's promise that His people will inherit the Kingdom of Heaven should give us strength to endure persecution.

Hanging in There

Pete Briscoe

Series: Living in Exile: God Working Behind the Scenes

As Christians, we have God's Word to tell us how the game of life ends. Yet, even though we cling to His truth, we can find ourselves preoccupied with the enemy's short-term victories and temporary advances in the world.

In this message Pete Briscoe teaches from Daniel 7 to help us through the struggle of trying to understand God's eternal plan and how to persevere until He decides to end the game of life.

Scripture: Daniel 7:1 - 7:14

Authority Over Enemies

Pete Briscoe

Series: Confronting the Enemy

The forces of evil are real, and they can petrify us. But a simple truth can give us hope: In the presence of a greater strength, bullies become wimps. In the presence of Jesus, demons become weak at the knees. Only in the power of Jesus, then, do we have strength and authority to face the enemy.

Scripture: Luke 4:21 - 4:37

Clothed with Power

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Believing What We Believe

Before the day of Pentecost, the disciples were in the middle of a faith crisis. They were broken after seeing Jesus crucified, they lost their purpose. But part of God's divine plan was for the Holy Spirit to come and empower the disciples to go out into the world and launch the great commission.

What was this day like for the disciples and what does it mean for us? We know it was spectacular and it forever changed the disciples. Peter, who couldn't even speak about Jesus to a girl a month earlier, was now emboldened to speak with authority to 3,000 listeners who came to believe in Christ.

In Clothed with Power, Stuart Briscoe talks about how the day of Pentecost marks a crucial turning point for the disciples as they came to truly believe what they believed..

Scripture: Acts 2:1 - 2:41

Crisis of Faith, Part 2

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Believing What We Believe

It's heartbreaking to hear someone say, "I used to believe, but then things didn't work out as I thought they should." That's a crisis of faith and not too different from what the disciples experienced after Jesus was crucified. They were devastated and afraid, everything they had put their faith in died with Jesus on the cross.

How do we respond to the grievous feeling of broken faith? Stuart Briscoe shares his own personal experience in this message Crisis of Faith. He talks about the crucial point in life when we move beyond our book knowledge of faith to actually applying "our faith in Him" to our lives.

Joy in Mourning

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Believing What We Believe

How can we experience joy in our hearts not just at Easter, but every day? Stuart points out in this message that it depends on what we believe about the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Sin in the Camp

Jill Briscoe

Series: How to Be Up When You're Down

Have you ever noticed how kids try to hide things they've done wrong—a broken family heirloom, a bad report card, or a dent in the car? As much as he or she tries to hide the mistake, most often the parents find out. The same is true of our sin. As much as we try to bury our sin, God always knows about it. But how do we confront it?

In this message by Jill, she teaches us what to do with sin so that we can make God the true ruler of our lives.

Jill Briscoe

One Person at a Time

Pete Briscoe

Series: The Good Life

Most people understand the importance of love. It’s a basic tenant of most faiths, and in John 13:34, Jesus clearly instructs us to “love one another.” Love is part of the good Life that God wants us to experience.

The challenge, however, is when we think loving one another means we should love everyone. With so many people and so much need in our world, that can quickly become a vague and overwhelming ideal. How can you possibly love everyone

Thankfully, God doesn’t actually ask us to do that. In this message, Pete Briscoe walks through passages in the Gospel of John and points out the extraordinary ways in which Jesus loved people individually. He shares how you, too, can express love in an effective, meaningful way.

Scripture: John 13:34

It’s Worth the Awkwardness

Pete Briscoe

Series: The Good Life

Do you get uncomfortable in small gatherings? As believers, we’re encouraged to join a small group, but they can be intimidating and downright awkward at first. Sometimes it's just easier to come and go from church, but when you do that, you never really connect with anyone, and you remain isolated.

Jesus knew the importance of small, intimate groups of believers. In fact, one of the first things He did in ministry was gather His disciples—a group that remained His “circle” for the entirety of His earthly ministry.

In this message based on John 13-17, Pete Briscoe tells the story of the very first circle of believers and shares how being in a tight-knit group is worth the initial discomfort of joining one. There’s a richness found in small groups that can be experienced nowhere else.

Scripture: John 13 - 17

If You Want to Grow

Pete Briscoe

Series: The Good Life

Some things are better together—sweet and sour, Lewis and Clark, or Batman and Robin. When you separate one from the other, they’re not nearly as powerful. Both are needed in order to achieve the greatest impact.

It’s the same thing when it comes to our faith. Spending time in God’s Word personally while being part of a broader church community are important aspects to growing spiritually. However, there’s an equally important component to our growth we can often overlook.

In this message based on Ephesians 4:11-16 and Acts 2:42-47, Pete Briscoe shares what that crucial component is. When you step into it, and when it’s paired with personal and corporate times of worship and learning, it becomes a powerful means to spiritual growth.

Scripture: Acts 2:42 - 2:47 , Ephesians 4:11 - 4:16

The Danger of Isolation

Pete Briscoe

Series: The Good Life

In subtle ways, the world often encourages us to go it alone. We are taught to be independent from a young age, and the busyness of life can often leave little margin for genuine relationships. Sometimes rejection and other past wounds—and maybe even sin—keeps us from being part of an authentic community.

However, isolation is not what God has in mind for us. He designed us for interdependence, both for our benefit and the benefit of others. Living without community puts us in a dangerous and vulnerable position for Satan’s attacks.

In this message based on 1 Corinthians 12:11-31, Pete Briscoe teaches about the importance of living life together and shares how a huge slice of the good Life is waiting for you within an authentic, loving, Christ-centered community.

Scripture: 1 Corinthians 12:11 - 12:31

A Secret that Can Change Your Life, Part 2

Pete Briscoe

Series: The Good Life

Who doesn’t love being pampered with gifts and services by others? We all love it when things are given to us or when we can afford to treat ourselves. It’s part of the American Dream, and the Bible even tells us the created order was given to us to delight in. But is there something even better than receiving, even better than accumulating more?

Scripture presents an alternative to receiving that not only increases our contentment level, but is far more life-giving. And it’s one of the best kept secrets that can actually change your life. In this message, Pete Briscoe takes you to Acts 20:28-35 and Philippians 2:1-7 to share what that secret is and how you can step into this incredible aspect of the Christian life.

What Are You Eating?

Pete Briscoe

Series: The Good Life

You know that feeling after you’ve stuffed yourself with junk food? The idea of junk food might seem attractive at first, but you quickly realize how bad it makes you feel. Spiritual “junk food” can have the same effect. You can spend hours consumed with things that are only robbing you of joy and energy.

In this message, Pete Briscoe shares how God has a feast of good food prepared for you—food that will transform and nourish your soul—and where to find it. If you’re willing to leave the junk food behind there’s joy, peace, and personal spiritual growth waiting for you.

Scripture: Isaiah 55

Chasing the American Dream, Part 2

Pete Briscoe

Series: The Good Life

Go to college, get a good job, buy a car—maybe two—and a house, get married, and achieve great success. Sound familiar? It’s called the American Dream, and many of us have grown up believing that achieving it is the ultimate goal in life.

In reality, the American Dream is nothing but a list of cravings with an empty promise that says, “If you get everything, you’ll be happy.” It’s a futile attempt to find life in lifestyle.

So what’s the alternative? In this message, Pete Briscoe takes us to John 3:1-16 and shares how to stop chasing things that will never satisfy and trade in the American Dream for the real “good Life.”

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Disciples of Jesus

What are you living for?

This is a loaded question that each one of us contemplates and strives to answer. But while we’re searching for the answer, it’s tempting to chase after significance, success, and worth in the way culture defines it. However, as believers in Jesus, our purpose comes from an entirely different source.

In this message, Stuart Briscoe outlines what Scripture teaches about God’s call on the lives of His disciples, and he’ll share how you can discover God’s custom-made plan for your life.

In this message, Stuart Briscoe teaches us how these powerful words of Jesus are relevant in today’s world and shares the greatest hope of all for our hurting and broken world.

Ending Favoritism

Pete Briscoe

Series: What Will Jesus Do?

The world says status, wealth, and acceptance are ingredients to the good life. So we aspire to be the best—placing others in the pecking order as we go. But what does Jesus think about this?

Greatness in God's Kingdom looks a lot different than greatness in the world. For those who have said "yes" to Jesus, there is only one classified group: God's children. The indwelling Christ gives us eyes to see others by His standard of greatness.

Scripture: Luke 9:46 - 9:56

Who Receives the Glory?

Pete Briscoe

Series: What Will Jesus Do?

Do we trust that Jesus will provide for our every need? Our attitude is often: We want it, we want it now, and we'd do anything for it. This voice of our culture builds impatience in our hearts. Jesus grew impatient, too, but only when His disciples attempted to do things that could only be done in Him.

Pete encourages us to break our "working for God" mindset. When we attempt to do things for God, Jesus gets impatient. But when we allow Jesus to work through us, the Father is glorified. Will we live on our own to glorify ourselves, or live in Christ to glorify God?

Scripture: Luke 9:37 - 9:43

We Are Perfectly Incapable

Pete Briscoe

Series: What Will Jesus Do?

Has Jesus ever prompted you to do something far beyond your abilities, and you find yourself thinking, "I just can’t do this?" It leaves us feeling inadequate. However, we should never apply the worldly principle of inadequacy to Kingdom promptings!

Throughout the Gospels, Jesus often asked the disciples to do things they were completely incapable of doing without Him. He wants to do the same in us. Christ is capable of doing in us what we could never do on our own.

Enemies. We've all got them. They irritate us, hurt us, and bring out the worst in us. But as a new creation in Christ, what do you do with your enemies? Jesus assumed we'd have enemies, and His direction to us is blatant, but it's an action only possible through Him.

Scripture: Luke 6:27 - 6:36

I’m Awe Inspiring

Pete Briscoe

Series: Facing Jesus in Your Loneliness

Life is hard, isn't it? Each of us has our own burdens to deal with, and these problems become the focus of our attention. Pete uses Isaiah 40 to explain God's heart for us in these times. He provides comfort in reminding us that God is bigger than our problems. Not only that, but in His majesty, He still wants to cradle us in our times of weakness.

Great Is Thy Faithfulness - Morning by Morning, Part 2

Jill Briscoe

Series: Facing Jesus in Your Loneliness

Trying to walk in faith is a day-by-day lesson in leaning on God. It's figuring out moment-by-moment what a Christian life looks like—and it's not easy. 

Jeremiah had to learn how to have faith like this when he was in the pit, when he was fighting despair and doubt. During this time, God was teaching Jeremiah to put his mind on Him, instead of on the troubles of life. 

Jeremiah's testimony of learning faith morning by morning is a great lesson for us in pursuing faith, even in doubts and trials.

Scripture: Lamentations 3:19 - 3:33

Stuart Briscoe

It is a well-established fact among believers that "man cannot live by bread alone," but that the Word "from the mouth of God" is vitally necessary (Mt. 4:4). However, it is equally well established that many believers have inadequate appetites for and diets of the Word of God.

When Peter was awakened by the angel in prison, he woke to a new life. Paul says believers have a similar experience—it's like "rising from the dead." But this new life requires care. It takes a lot of wisdom.

Getting Past Being Terrified

Pete Briscoe

Series: Making Him Known

Kids are often scared of the dark. They picture monsters under their bed or shadows running across the room, and they become terrified. As adults, we may not be scared of the dark, but there are other things that frighten us. For many, one of those scary things is sharing the news of Jesus Christ with friends, coworkers, and family members. But, that's what God wants us to do—He wants us to tell people about Him. In this message, Pete Briscoe explains how to get past the fear.

Scripture: John 16:7

It's a Lifestyle Not an Ambush

Pete Briscoe

Series: Making Him Known

So often we find ourselves knowing what task we have to complete, but not knowing how we are going to complete it. Those of us who have a relationship with Jesus Christ know that the task God has put before us is to teach people about Him. But most people struggle to understand how to complete the task. In this message, Pete Briscoe breaks it down for us using the Apostle Paul's life as an example to help us learn to be disciples of Christ.

Scripture: Acts 8:26
