Deborah - How to Fight Your Battles

Jill Briscoe

Series: Women Who Changed Their World

Every day we fight battles: teaching our kids to clean up their toys, dealing with difficult co-workers or family members, getting society to clean up the environment. But even though these battles are big, there is an even bigger war going on—a spiritual one. While we know that God is the ultimate victor, we live every day surrounded by Satan’s armies. 

The judge and prophetess Deborah was surrounded by not only a spiritual war but a physical one! God gave her the gifts and talents she needed to complete the task He gave her. In this message from Judges, Jill shares with us Deborah’s story and shows us how we, too, can respond to God and find our roles in this great battle.

Rahab - How to Start All Over Again

Jill Briscoe

Series: Women Who Changed Their World

Have you ever felt wrongly judged? Rahab was someone who was judged for her outer appearance. A harlot, known for keeping brothels within Jericho, no one would have believed by simply looking at her that she was seeking God. 

Thankfully, God looks beyond what man sees to the desires of our hearts, and changes us from the inside out. 

Scripture: James 2 , Joshua 2 - 6

Miriam - How to Be a Servant Leader

Jill Briscoe

Series: Women Who Changed Their World

If you’ve ever wondered what it looks like to be a servant of God, look to Miriam. Miriam served God using her gifts when she took on a willing, servant attitude. Miriam discovered that she had the gift of prophecy, and she used it where God called her—in leading the people of Israel to the Promised Land, alongside Aaron and Moses.

God wants to use you, as He used Miriam, with the gifts and personality that He gave you. In this message, we see how God will put you in the right place at the right time. But He requires you to have the right attitude.

Sarah - How to Have a Good Attitude

Jill Briscoe

Series: Women Who Changed Their World

When we think of someone with a good attitude, Abraham’s wife Sarah is probably not the first person who comes to mind. We might think of her arguments with Abraham, how she laughed at God’s good news, her harsh dealings with Hagar, how she lied to Pharaoh. But in 1 Peter 3, Peter commends Sarah as a model for all women for her “quiet and meek spirit.” What happened in Sarah’s life to turn this feisty, contentious, rebel of a woman into God’s royal princess? 

In this message, Jill teaches us about Sarah’s life—her shortcomings and how God turned this rebel into royalty—and how giving God control in our own lives can transform our attitudes like it did for Sarah.

Scripture: 1 Peter 3 - 4 , Genesis 12 - 18

Eve - How to Find Your Identity

Jill Briscoe

Series: Women Who Changed Their World

Women throughout all of history have been trying to find their identities—through marriage, children, a career. But we can find our true identity and fulfillment only in our relationship with God. Eve had a unique opportunity to be with God in the Garden of Eden, and God revealed His intended work for her, what He designed her to do. But Eve’s identity was challenged in the Fall when Satan deceived Eve into trying to find her identity outside of the God in whose image she was made. We, too, were created in God’s image and were designed for the work He has for us. 

In this message, Jill walks us through Eve’s story and teaches us how it is also our story—how our own identities may be obscured in the Fall but are renewed in Christ’s redemptive work.

Scripture: Genesis 1 - 3

The People and the Book, Part 2

Stuart Briscoe

Series: The People and the Book

Reading about the Israelites in the Old Testament can make us feel pretty superior. After all, these people, so cherished by God, often got it wrong. God repeatedly blessed them, and in turn, they repeatedly abandoned God for things that seemed better and more appealing. They forgot His Word and His promises. Uncomfortable yet? Does this sound familiar? 

Our world looks pretty much the same way today! There’s a famine of hearing and knowing God’s Word, both in and outside our churches. Something is missing spiritually, and it affects every other facet of our lives. In this riveting message by Stuart, he explains what we need to do, and what will lead to true life transformation.

You Are God's Ambassador, Part 2

Pete Briscoe

Series: Identity Defined

As Christians, we know the Gospel message by heart, but when it comes to sharing it with others, we panic. We avoid sharing it because we tell ourselves we’re not gifted or articulate enough. The truth is if we’re in Christ, we are His ambassadors sent to share the good news with everyone.

Will you accept your identity as a carrier of the world’s greatest message?

You Are Connected to God, Part 2

Pete Briscoe

Series: Identity Defined

How would you describe your relationship to the church? Are you engaged in the church, or have you distanced yourself and feel disconnected? For various reasons, it’s sometimes easy for us to drift away from the church and isolate ourselves. But God’s desire is to build a vibrant, interconnected, and beautiful church—and He wants you to be a part of it!

You Are God's Agent

Pete Briscoe

Series: Identity Defined

Suffering is inevitable, but when it comes, do you protest and ask, “How could God let this happen to me?” What if, instead of protesting, we embraced suffering? The concept is countercultural, but a powerful thing happens when we embrace suffering—Christ is revealed through us.

How will Christ express Himself as you resist the desire to run from suffering and embrace your difficult circumstance?

Scripture: 2 Corinthians 4:5 - 4:12

You Are a Living Saint

Pete Briscoe

Series: Identity Defined

We tend to believe we’re “sinners saved by grace.” While it’s true that we are born sinners, we’re in error if, as Christians, we continue to claim that identity. Falsely believing we’re sinners, only leads to a cycle of sinful tendencies. Pete reminds us that in Christ, we are no longer sinners—we are saints!

Will you accept you’re “a saint who sometimes sins,” or will you continue to believe you’re still just a sinner?

Scripture: 1 Corinthians 1:1 - 1:2

You Are God's Masterpiece

Pete Briscoe

Series: Identity Defined

We live in a society that likes to pretend. We often present ourselves in a way contrary to the truth in order to impress others. But when we’re pretending, we’re forgetting that in Christ, we are uniquely, beautifully designed. We are far from unimpressive in God’s eyes!

You Have a New Identity

Pete Briscoe

Faith's Fundamentals

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Keep the Faith

Hebrews addressed a struggling group of Jewish believers discovering that discipleship would not be easy as Jesus had warned. In it they were encouraged to “keep the faith,” warned of the dangers of failure to do so, and reminded how to mature in their faith. But they must be willing to move beyond faith’s fundamentals—to make progress and mature.

Jesus Is Fierce, Part 2

Pete Briscoe

Series: Everyday Jesus

We all get upset sometimes—with ourselves, with another person, or with our circumstances. It can bring out pretty ugly sides of us all. But do you think this anger is ever appropriate?

In the Gospels, we see Jesus as loving, compassionate, gentle, and forgiving, but we also see Him get angry. And when we look closely at these instances of anger, we’ll see very intentional reasons for it.

In this message, Pete Briscoe examines closely what made Jesus upset and shows us what it would look like for Him to get angry through us.

Scripture: Luke 13:31 - 13:33

Jesus Is Scandalous

Pete Briscoe

Series: Everyday Jesus

Are you too concerned with what others think of you—avoiding situations or changing how you act or respond just to win their approval?

Time and time again throughout the Gospels we see how Jesus was unafraid of tarnishing His reputation. In fact, He did things that were seen as outlandish and even scandalous.

In this message, Pete Briscoe shows us several instances when Jesus was far more concerned with loving people than what people thought of Him. You’ll learn how Jesus wants to help you break free from the oppressive need to fit in so you don’t miss out on how He wants to use you to love others.

Scripture: Luke 5:12 - 5:16

Jesus Is Disruptive, Part 2

Pete Briscoe

Series: Everyday Jesus

Have you ever seen a loved one headed down a path of destruction? Maybe they’ve developed a bad habit or sin pattern and they’re hurting themselves and those around them.

What did you do? Did you approach them about it and endure the awkwardness and potential consequences? Or did you choose not to say anything?

In this message, Pete Briscoe looks closely at Luke’s Gospel to examine how Jesus approached these uncomfortable situations. You’ll learn how there are times when He needs us to be a compassionate yet disruptive force in the lives of those we love.

Jesus Is Extravagantly Generous

Pete Briscoe

Series: Everyday Jesus

During His earthly ministry, Jesus performed some incredible miracles: turning water into wine, feeding the 5,000, healing the sick, and countless more. All these events point to the fact that Jesus was generous with His actions, gifts, and time in illogical, extravagant ways. He gave above and beyond, and that was just His way.

But do you think He demonstrates that same way of giving today? In this message, Pete Briscoe looks to the Gospels of John and Mark to show us Christ’s generosity every day and how He desires to express that same extravagant generosity through us as we give of our time and resources.

Scripture: John 2:1 - 2:11 , Mark 12:41 - 12:44

Jesus Is Playful, Part 2

Pete Briscoe

Series: Everyday Jesus

Can you imagine Jesus smiling, laughing, and enjoying some casual time with His disciples? Or do you think He was always serious? Some people are convinced that Jesus never had any fun and was somber all the time.

If you believe this and you limit your perception of Jesus to a stern teacher, then your walk with Him can become stiff and rigid. But when you look at the Gospels, you can see how Jesus loved to smile, laugh, and share joyful moments with His disciples and everyone He encountered.

In this message, Pete Briscoe shows us how Jesus had a playful side to His character. If your life with Jesus has stiffened, He can’t wait to bring joy and laughter back into your life!

A Limited Experience of Jesus

Pete Briscoe

Series: Everyday Jesus

How do you like to spend time with Jesus? Maybe it’s through the study of theology, music, the arts, in solitude, or maybe in nature. But here’s another question to ponder: How willing are you to experience Him in everyday ways?

The truth is, our experience of Jesus is limited mostly by the limits we place on Him. If we insist Jesus must interact with us through one specific way, we’re missing out on the incredible things He has for us.

In this message, Pete Briscoe points out an aspect of Jesus’ character that proves just how much He desires you to know Him in rich, creative, and diverse ways.

Scripture: John 1:35 - 1:39

Teach Us to Pray, Part 2

Jill Briscoe

Series: Let's Talk

While here on earth, Jesus himself sought communion with God through prayer. His disciples were to do likewise. He gave us a pattern to follow. For those who ask, seek, and knock, God is more than willing to answer. He is even more willing than friends or an earthly father, as Jesus explains through the parables. But the Christian’s prayer requests need to be in line with Jesus’ model prayer.

Jill Briscoe

Series: Let's Talk

One of the things that matters most to Jesus is our personal relationship with Him. This matters to Him even when it doesn’t matter to us! He offers the human race an incredible invitation. He says, “Let’s talk.” What does this mean? It involves listening to His Word and responding in prayer.

Prayer and Healing, Part 2

Faith means to believe with expectancy, but it also means to rest and trust. When we pray for healing, we’re not always certain of what God’s will is, but we can come before him with an attitude of rest and trust. 

In this message Stuart Briscoe teaches from James 5:13-18 to help us understand why prayer for the sick is important, why we should pray, and what we can expect from God in answering our prayers. You’ll come away with a greater understanding about the decisive factors that make prayer work.

Jesus Cured the Sick, Part 2

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Finding Healing

There are many instances in Scripture where Jesus cured the sick—physically and spiritually. Can we expect that same kind of healing? Why are some people healed while others are not?

These are important questions worthy of study, but another question that is equally important to ask is: why did Jesus perform miracles in the first place? Too often we have an inaccurate understanding of why Jesus heals. We’re so desperate with our self-interests that we miss the point of his healings—the true significance.

In this message by Stuart Briscoe, we learn what Jesus was trying to illustrate with miracle healings and discover the hope we have in overcoming our troubles and ailments.

Miraculous Healing

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Finding Healing

We’re hungry for spectacular healing in our lives—for God to take away our infirmities in a moment’s work.

For 38 years the crippled man lay on his filthy mat near the pool of Bethesda hoping to be healed when the water stirred. Jesus sought him out and asked him, “Do you want to get well?” On the surface, this might seem like an odd question, but maybe Jesus was getting at something richly profound.

In this message taught from John 5:1-15, Stuart Briscoe discusses how when Jesus performs a spectacular healing miracle, he heals so much more than just our bodies.

Scripture: John 5:1 - 5:15

And even when He hasn’t healed as we hope, we can still trust Him in His sovereignty.

God's Plan for the Workplace

Stuart Briscoe

Series: God Has a Plan - and We're Part of It

Believers on Mission

Pete Briscoe

Series: The Essence of Christian Living

God reaches down into humanity and asks all of us to share His Good News throughout the world. But not all of us feel called to move to a different country to plant churches or live in isolated tribes to create a written language of the native tongue.

What does being on mission look like in our individual lives? We don’t have to wonder!

In this message, Pete Briscoe teaches from 3 John to show us the beautiful and simple way that each of us can love the unloved, and be on mission to tell others about Jesus.

Scripture: 3 John

What the World Needs from Christians

Pete Briscoe

Series: The Essence of Christian Living

2 John is a short letter but it packs a powerful message of how the church of Jesus Christ should look—to love everyone we encounter while never shying away from sharing God’s truth.

God’s family is called to live in the tension that love and truth create. How do we go about living this way when now more than ever the world views Christians as intolerant and unloving, even to each other?

In this message, Pete Briscoe, teaches from 2 John to show us how to walk constantly in love and truth. It’s exactly what this angry and hateful world desperately needs.

Struggling with Doubt

Pete Briscoe

Series: The Essence of Christian Living

How confident are you in your faith, your salvation, and in your beliefs about God? Do you ever doubt?

Doubt is something we often think of as forbidden. It can bring about guilt and shame, and we may even think of ourselves as “less of a Christian” if we struggle with it. However, doubting is more common than you may think, and Scripture tells us where we can turn when we’re grappling with it.

In this message, Pete uses 1 John 5:6-13 to outline four truths that eradicate doubt and bring us to a place of confidence in our faith.

Walking in Truth

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.”

But in our modern culture, we see dramatically changing attitudes toward truth.

In this message, Stuart Briscoe helps us to recognize that there is such a thing as truth, and there is such a thing as error.

Have you ever heard “biblical” teaching that sounded a bit off? Sometimes it’s glaringly obvious, but other times, you might not even be aware that you’re being deceived.

False teaching can be extremely dangerous. It can lead you into temptation and outside of the Life Jesus came to give. So, how can you discern false teaching and avoid anything beyond the realm of God’s Truth?

Pete Briscoe takes you to the answer found in 1 John and shares how to recognize the telltale sign of false teaching and avoid its danger and deceit.

We have an endless amount of information at our fingertips. And with social media and countless blogs, anyone who thinks they’re an expert can find a platform to sound like one. But in this endless sea of opinion, how do we know which voices are speaking words of truth?

In this message, Pete Briscoe talks about the dangers of false teaching and how, if we’re not careful, Satan can use words to deceive and attack us. You’ll learn how to rest in the truth and avoid the enemy’s deceptive tactics.

Christ Alone, Part 2

Series: Recognizing False Teaching

What’s the difference between a New Covenant believer and the major religions of the world? Jesus ONLY for salvation—that’s the difference.

It’s countercultural to say that it’s Jesus or nothing, but that’s the truth. The Bible tells us categorically that salvation comes through faith in Jesus, but religions add to the truth with unnecessary “to-do” lists. Those lists are dangerous because they foster the belief that salvation is conditional based on what we do and not the completed work of Jesus.

In this message, Pete Briscoe examines the false claims of different religions and then teaches from God’s Word to lovingly and truthfully show us the only path to salvation and eternal life.

In many of the remaining monarchies, the kings and queens are much beloved by their people, but they have very little real power. Sadly, many believers relate to Jesus the same way.

Jill Briscoe

Series: Shelter from the Wind

In many of the remaining monarchies, the kings and queens are much beloved by their people, but they have very little real power. Sadly, many believers relate to Jesus the same way. They proclaim Jesus to be King of Kings and the Lord of their lives, but they make all the decisions! When we let Christ truly reign, amazing things happen.

Scripture: Isaiah 32

In Step with the Father, Part 2

Pete Briscoe

Series: What Will Jesus Do?

When was the last time you stole away to a quiet, secluded place to pray? Chances are it’s been a while. But quiet time is essential for any thriving relationship. Jesus craved alone time with the Father, so He often withdrew from the crowds and disciples to spend time in prayer.

How will your relationship with God thrive if you answer Jesus’ prompting to steal away with Him?
