Just One Thing, Part 1

Pete Briscoe

Series: The Essence of Christian Living

Jesus didn’t come to give you life—He came to give you the Life, His Life, true Life. If you lack peace and joy, and struggle with restlessness, you might be missing out on the Life that Jesus promises to give you.

In this message, Pete Briscoe teaches from 1 John to lead you to that just one thing that provides the freedom you long for and the rest you need.

Scripture: 1 John 1:1 - 1:4

Strengthened Through Prayer

Pete Briscoe

Series: More Effective Prayer

It takes tremendous courage to stand firm in times of opposition and persecution when every fiber of your being tells you to turn and run. As the early church set out to do as Jesus asked—to be his witnesses throughout the world, they continually faced hostile situations. How did they manage to keep telling people about Jesus—even when it became an illegal act?

In this message, Pete Briscoe teaches about prayer from Acts 4 to show us how to find courage.

Scripture: Acts 1:12 - 1:26 , Acts 4:23 - 4:31

Sufficient Grace, Part 2

Jill Briscoe

Series: Grace in the Garden

Splinters, thorns, prickers. It doesn’t matter what they are called, they hurt and get under your skin! Life in our world is filled with thorns: difficult relationships, illness, loss of loved ones, broken promises. The Bible tells us that even the Apostle Paul and God Himself in Jesus struggled under the bite of thorns. But God does not allow thorns in our lives without providing sufficient grace to live in the prickly mess. What Satan intends to push us down often results in pushing us to our knees in front of God’s throne instead. 

“You who wore my thorns that I may know Your grace...pierced by my sin that I may see Your face...loved and forgiven from shame and deep disgrace. You wore my thorns. You wore my thorns.” (from Jill’s poem “You Wore My Thorns” copyright 2003)

Saving Grace

Jill Briscoe

Series: Grace in the Garden

Why is a walk in a garden so relaxing? Because we were created to live in God’s garden of perfection, forever. Unfortunately, as the story goes, Adam and Eve made a fatal error and were forced to make their home in the garden of sin instead, where nothing is perfect or peaceful. 

But remember, this is God’s story! God came looking for Adam and Eve after they disobeyed. And in His grace, He still comes looking for us today. Jill Briscoe takes us through biblical examples of God’s saving grace and how He offers us a way to His riches through Christ.

Teach Us to Listen

Jill Briscoe

Series: More Effective Prayer

If you only talked to your spouse for a minute or two a few times a week, what would your relationship be like?  Disconnected?  Distant?  A lot of us have a prayer life like that.  We don’t spend much time in conversation with God, and when we make the effort, we do all the talking!

One of the things that matters most to Jesus is our personal relationship with Him.  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.

In this message, Jill Briscoe gives you a vivid picture of the intimacy you’ll experience when you carve out time to connect with God.

Pete Briscoe

Series: More Effective Prayer

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.

Reviving: Dry Bones

I'm Depending

Pete Briscoe

Series: God Promises

Dependent isn’t an adjective most people would want to use to describe themselves. Rather, we would like to be independent, in control. Paul writes about being dependent on Christ as a wonderful and necessary thing for Christian living. It is a privilege!

In this message, Pete Briscoe teaches us how dependence on God is a beautiful part of the dance, as we let the Spirit guide us through daily living.

Faith, Hope, and Patience

Stuart Briscoe

Series: God Promises

It’s easy to place your faith in people, parties, and programs. But it’s impossible for all those things to sustain and uphold your heart.

When patience wears thin and genuine hope is all you long for, the “who” of faith matters greatly. And there’s no better Who than the Lord, our God.

In this message, Stuart Briscoe opens Scripture to reveal the character of our promise-keeping God. He is true, He is faithful—and there’s no better place for your faith to be than in Him.

Scripture: Hebrews 6:1 - 6:10

Is God Really Committed to Me?

Pete Briscoe

Series: God Promises

Have you ever been gripped by fear and wondered if God could ever change His mind about you? In our world, people change their minds all the time, and the consequences are often catastrophic—abandoned marriages, broken hearts, and destroyed finances. So, what if God changed His mind and broke His promise about Jesus being the only way to the Father?

In this message, Pete Briscoe takes a detailed look at the ultimate promise of God woven through His Word in the Bible.

God with Us to Comfort

Stuart Briscoe

Series: God Promises

In a world of screens and social media, nearness is increasingly uncommon. Yes, we’re more connected than ever before, but comments and video calls haven’t helped our loneliness—doing little to bring us comfort.

So where do we turn when the whole world feels distant?

In this message, Stuart Briscoe draws your attention to God’s precious promises in Psalm 23. As your strong and steady Shepherd, God is intimately present in your life. He is near—always leading to you to pastures of comfort and peace.

Scripture: Psalm 23:1 - 23:6

When You've Been Rejected

Pete Briscoe

At some point in our lives, many of us have felt alone and rejected. No one understood those kinds of feelings better than the lepers in Jesus’ day.

When Being Good Isn't Enough

Pete Briscoe

Series: Changed by Christ

What if I told you that no matter how well you follow the commandments, it still wouldn’t be enough to get you into heaven? Doesn’t that seem unfair? Nicodemus thought he was guaranteed a place with God because he was one of the most knowledgeable law keepers of his time. Listen as Pete takes us to John 3 to explain Jesus’ corrections to those assumptions.

Living Above the Circumstances

Jill Briscoe

Series: Living Above the Circumstances

Does anyone ever ask, “How are you?” and you reply, “Well, under the circumstances....” The problem is that’s exactly where we are living—under the circumstances! How do we rise above the adversity and sing a song of praise? From the Old Testament book of 1 Samuel, Jill Briscoe shows us how Hannah, under very difficult circumstances, found the secret.

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Keep Calm and Carry On

In the midst of so much international and interpersonal turmoil, it is easy to wonder: Why is it like this? What is God doing? How can I possibly carry on in this chaotic world? These questions, incredibly pertinent today, were also asked by the psalmist of Israel several thousand years ago. 

In his message “Keep Calm and Carry On,” Stuart Briscoe remembers life in World War II era Britain, and he uses Psalm 2 to confront the fear caused by the distressing circumstances of our current world with the sovereign plan of our mighty and holy God.

The Faith We Profess

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Keep the Faith

“Whom we confess” and “the faith we profess” are both translations of the Greek word homologia, which is defined as “an act of proclamation in which the concrete relation of man to Jesus is expressed in binding and valid form.” Jesus expressed the importance of such a homologia (Matthew 10:32), and Hebrews confirmed it.

The Full Assurance of Faith

Stuart 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.

When the storms of life come and the waves are crashing violently, do you find it difficult to trust that God is present and working?

Whether or not you can see Him, Jesus is walking on the water in the midst of your storm—and He’s asking you to step out in faith and trust Him.

In this message, Jill Briscoe uses the story of Peter walking on water to teach how you can learn to trust Jesus more passionately and confidently even in the midst of life’s most challenging storms.

Jill Briscoe looks at how five disciples came to Christ and started to passionately follow Him. She’ll explain how following Jesus is a way of purpose, fulfillment, and endless adventure. It’s better than any life you could dream up on your own.

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.
