Messages From This Series:

  1. 2. You Already Have an A

    Pete Briscoe

    Do you remember cramming for tests in school, memorizing facts to ace an "A"? You probably also remember the stress and the pressure to get everything right. Too many believers are living their spiritual lives this same way, trying to earn an "A" by doing and saying all the right things.

    If that's you, there's something you need to know—you already have an "A" because Jesus took the test for you through His death and resurrection! In this message by Pete Briscoe from his series on Galatians, learn why you don't have to march to the beat of the "perfect" Christian life anymore... you can dance!

    Scripture:  Galatians 5:1

  2. 3. What Is Hell?

    Jill Briscoe

    What is hell? How could a loving God create such a horrible place and then be willing to send His creation there? Jill agrees that these are normal thoughts to have, but she uses a number of passages to change our perspective on the matter.

    The greatest fall came when God's highest angel wanted to take His place and therefore was thrown out of heaven; hell was created as this angel's new home. Hell was never created by God for man, but if we choose to reject Him, this dreadful place becomes our eternal home.

  3. 4. Fight for the Family

    Jill Briscoe

    Families have been under attack from the beginning of time, and they are under attack today. The devil, who hates families with complete disdain, works overtime to tear down every wall we rebuild. How do we overcome his opposition when we're exhausted from the constant patch work?

    In this message, Jill Briscoe teaches from the book of Nehemiah on where to draw strength for rebuilding our family relationships.

    Scripture:  Nehemiah

  4. 5. God's Plan for Reconciliation

    Stuart Briscoe

    Too often we focus on issues that divide us as a people instead of the things that unify us. And when that happens, there's the potential to stay within your collective group of like-minded people and treat others differently, maybe even judgmentally. How do you keep yourself from a judgmental worldview so that you can see people as God sees them—precious and in need of a Savior?

    In this message, Stuart Briscoe teaches from Ephesians 2 and examines how the apostle Paul addresses issues that divide people. There's only one true way to overcoming what divides us, and if we embrace it, the effects can be revolutionary.

    Scripture:  Ephesians 2

  5. 6. Living in Uncertain Times

    Stuart Briscoe

    Happy New Year! This hopeful, generous sentiment is shared often at the beginning of a new year. But too often our happiness is dependent upon our happenings, and when things go wrong and curveballs come our way, happiness is gone.

    So given the uncertainty of the times in which we live, how do we gird ourselves up for the inevitable disappointments we will face? How do we put ourselves together to live well in the midst of uncertain times?

    Learn how as Stuart Briscoe takes us to 1 Peter for a new perspective on joy—found through the work of the Spirit in and through us.

    Scripture:  1 Peter
