Walking in Truth

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Recognizing False Teaching

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.

Detecting False Teaching

Pete Briscoe

Series: Recognizing False Teaching

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.

Deciphering Truth from Lies

Pete Briscoe

Series: Recognizing False Teaching

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

Pete Briscoe

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.

Scripture: 1 Timothy 2:5 , John 14:6

Honoring God, Part 2

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.

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?

A Personal Invitation

Pete Briscoe

Series: What Will Jesus Do?

We have a primary calling in life to be a child of God, but we all have a secondary calling as well. This secondary calling is a personal one to be an instrument in God’s work. But how do we know what that personal calling is? It takes an invitation.

In this message, Pete shares an unexpected way the invitation may arrive.

Pete Briscoe

Series: What Will Jesus Do?

There are certain things worth dropping everything for. This was true in the life of Jesus, and it’s true in our lives as well. Jesus recognized many things as important, but He also knew what was most important. If Christ is dwelling within us, then His priorities will be our priorities.

In this message,Pete shares where Jesus placed His focus, and where we should, too.

Authority Over Enemies

Pete Briscoe

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.

Have you ever felt like you’re running out of prayers? Maybe you’re disappointed with God because you prayed so hard and the prayer wasn’t answered. Or maybe you’ve just run out of spiritual energy, or you’re in a bad situation in your life and you don’t know how you are going to get through it.

In this message, Jill talks about what happens when we feel like we have no prayers left to give, and she offers tools for getting through it.

Fire on the Mountain

Jill Briscoe

Series: Prayer That Works

In the story of Elijah, God answers Elijah’s prayer and sends fire from heaven down to Elijah’s altar, in order to show the people of Israel that He is the one and only true God. This is just one example of how God answers prayer.

In this message, Jill uses the analogy of an altar and describes twelve components that make up our relationship with God. It’s a way of helping us understand how God can send “fire” down to our altars to answer our prayers.

Scripture: 1 Kings 18:16 - 18:40

Praying for the Family

Jill Briscoe

Series: Prayer That Works

It’s easy to get discouraged when we’re praying for a family member or a loved one and we just don’t see God answering our prayers. In those times, we might tend to tell God how and when He should answer the prayer instead of having faith that His answer to our prayers might be in a way or at a time that is different than we imagine—but better!

In this message, Jill gives us the example of Elijah and the widow and her son at Zarephath. Sharing her own personal stories, Jill encourages us to keep praying for our loved ones in any circumstances.

Scripture: 1 Kings 17:7 - 17:24

The Hidden Life

Jill Briscoe

Series: Prayer That Works

When we think of the “heroes of the faith,” we tend to focus on the tasks they accomplished and the people they encouraged—but the things they accomplished on their feet wouldn’t have happened if they hadn’t spent time on their knees in prayer. Even Elijah had to start somewhere! He was a shepherd in a small town who cultivated “the hidden life” of prayer before God called him to change his world. 

In this message, Jill walks us through Elijah’s story, before the majestic displays of God’s glory on Mount Carmel, to a life fueled by prayer and trust in the Lord.

Scripture: 1 Kings 17 , James 5

The Rain Man

Jill Briscoe

Series: Prayer That Works

How’s your prayer life? Are your prayers childish, easily distracted, unfocused and lacking in passion, seeing prayer as a way to get what you want? Or are they heartfelt, fervent, and effective... prayer that works?

Drawing from the prophet Elijah’s fervent prayer life and his prayers for rain in a drought, Jill guides us in becoming great “pray-ers” and encourages us that effective prayer takes time and work but is completely worthwhile.

Scripture: James 5:13 - 5:19

Blessed Are the Peacemakers, Part 2

Jill Briscoe

Series: Solid Ground

You can’t be a peacemaker if you don’t have peace with Jesus, the Prince of Peace. We’ve all heard this before, but do we really understand what that means and how to practice it in our lives? 

In this message, Jill Briscoe talks about the path to finding our peace with Jesus and making peace with others. It’s an important topic—because we can’t mend our marriages, settle family conflicts, or resolve issues with others if we don’t truly understand what having peace means.

Peace, Joy and Hope, Part 2

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Perfect Peace

So often when we talk of peace, we think of it in terms of resolving a difficult situation. The biblical understanding of peace goes much deeper than that; and thankfully so, because the reality is that we’ll never be free from hostile environments and stressful situations.

The Apostle Paul knew that and wanted us to understand the unexplainable peace that is available to believers through Jesus.

In this message, Stuart Briscoe teaches from Romans 5 to explain the blessing of peace for those justified by faith. A peace unrelated to our external circumstances but related to our internal relationship with our Creator.

Scripture: Romans 5:1 - 5:21

Where Forgiveness Is Found

Pete Briscoe

Series: Better: A New and Living Way

Do you think that God’s forgiveness is a matter of apologizing to Him for your sins? Or do you recognize that the blood of Jesus is what washes your sin away? Do you understand the important difference?

In this message, Pete Briscoe compares the “apology economy” with the “blood economy” and focuses on where forgiveness is found.

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. 

Scripture: Hebrews 9:1 - 9:14

Intimately Loved and Indisputably Forgiven

Pete Briscoe

Series: Better: A New and Living Way

Have you ever wondered why God made a new covenant? It’s hard to imagine there was something wrong with the first covenant, because He made it. But in Jeremiah, we read that God found fault with the people. Despite His tender love for them, the people were incapable of living obediently to the law. 

In this message, Pete Briscoe shows how the age of law has passed and the age of the Son is here to stay. And with the new covenant, Jesus promises that through Him we are never led astray, we are intimately loved, and we are indisputably forgiven. 

Scripture: Hebrews 8:1 - 8:13 , Jeremiah 31:31 - 31:34

Is God Really Committed to Me?

Pete Briscoe

Series: Better: A New and Living Way

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. 

Scripture: Hebrews 7:11 - 7:28

The Law Isn't So Great

Pete Briscoe

Series: Better: A New and Living Way

The apostle Paul loves to play the “greater than game” in the book of Hebrews, and he does it skillfully. It’s a wonderful way to argue, because once he’s established that something is greater, then everything downstream from that thing is greater as well!

In this message, Pete Briscoe talks about how Paul uses the “greater than” approach to successfully tackle an equation that is of utmost importance to every believer. The equation of Law versus Jesus.

Scripture: Hebrews 6:19 - 7:10

Can I Lose My Salvation?

Pete Briscoe

Series: Better: A New and Living Way

Have you ever witnessed someone who seemed solid in his faith turn and walk away from it? Such an action can leave you nervously wondering, “If he wasn’t saved, how do I know I am? How do I know my salvation is secure?”

Pete Briscoe points to Hebrews 6:13-20 to give you the answer as to why you can, and should, have full assurance of your salvation. 

Scripture: Hebrews 6:13 - 6:20

The Promise of Rest

Pete Briscoe

Series: Better: A New and Living Way

Wouldn’t it be great if we could stay at rest even when conflict, stress, and trials push in on us? The Lord made a promise that we could enter His rest and that promise still stands today. Can you abandon your desire to strive in your own strength and find rest in His hands? 

In this message, Pete Briscoe talks about the promise of rest available to all believers.

Have you tried to carry all of your groceries into the house in one trip so you didn't have to go back out to the car? Your arms are aching, the bags are pinching your fingers, and the food is beginning to slide out. But you keep moving, hoping to get everything into the kitchen before the bags break! 

Now imagine that someone in your family came out as you were unloading your bags and offered to carry them so you could sit down to rest. You probably wouldn't turn them down! Well, Jesus has made this offer—He wants to carry our burdens. We just need to say yes. 

In Matthew 11:28-29, Jesus says:  "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."

Series: A View from the Porch Swing

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.

Free to Be What?

Stuart Briscoe

The Colossian Christians were being troubled by people who were confusing them and hindering their spiritual progress. Paul spoke forcibly to the issue and in so doing he reminds us that we should be on our guard against those who would be less than helpful to our spiritual lives. 

Scripture: Colossians 2:16 - 2:23

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
