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.

Scripture: Luke 9:10 - 9:17

The Moment Jesus Returns, Part 2

Pete Briscoe

Series: The Essence of Christian Living

How you feel about Jesus’ return probably has a lot to do with your understanding of the Bible.

There certainly will be a lot of action that day—the dead in Christ rising, non-believers swept away, believers lifted up to meet Jesus in the clouds. It will be an amazing day!

But if you’re not sure about how Jesus will react to you, you might be living in fear of His return. Maybe that fear stems from a struggle with sin, or you’re afraid you’ll be sinning at that exact moment He returns.

In this message, Pete Briscoe teaches from 1 John 2 & 3 to help release you from your fear and anxiety. You’ll learn why and how you can live confidently today while you wait for Jesus’ imminent return.

How to Obey the Bible, Part 2

Jill Briscoe

Series: Here Am I, Send Aaron

Many of us live a Christian life that’s like a saggy bed. We’re rock firm on one end and rock firm on the other. We know we’ve accepted Christ, and we know we’re going to heaven when we die.

When you think of witnessing, what comes to mind? Many think witnessing is scary and intimidating. Others think it’s something that just pastors and ministry leaders should do. But God believes witnessing is everyone’s job, and He has given each and every one of us the tools to do it. In this message, Jill explains how we can learn to witness.

Recognizing False Teaching

Pete Briscoe

Series: The Essence of Christian Living

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.

Scripture: 1 John 2:18 - 2:27

Flirting with the World

Pete Briscoe

Series: The Essence of Christian Living

Why is the world such a dangerous place for Christians? Because worldly pleasures are developed by the evil one for the purpose of drawing you away from Jesus.

Just like a true friend would warn you of impending danger, John cautions us in 1 John about the danger of being seduced by worldly things that are not from God but are from Satan—things that pull us away from Jesus and into harmful circumstances.

In this message, Pete Briscoe shows us what’s at stake when we maintain a flirtatious relationship with worldly things.

Scripture: 1 John 2:12 - 2:17

Distorted Love

Pete Briscoe

Series: The Essence of Christian Living

Is there ever a check in your spirit about whether you’re really a Christian? Studied out of context, 1 John 2:3, which mentions obeying commands, can read more like a warning to believers and cause us to doubt if we’re really children of God. But in reality, John brings to light in his letter the most beautiful and magnificent truth about the new command that Jesus wants us to focus on.

In this message, Pete Briscoe uses John’s letter to lift the burden of doubt we might carry about our salvation. And at the same time, teaches us about Jesus’ design for love that is counterintuitive to how we love on our own.

Scripture: 1 John 2:3 - 2:13

What Is God Really Like? Part 2

Stuart Briscoe

Series: What Is God Really Like?

People become remarkably imaginative about God.  But Scripture says, “Eye has not seen, ear has not heard, neither has entered into the heart of man what God has prepared for those who love Him, but God has revealed them to us by His Spirit.”

Not speculation, not imagination – but revelation. God is in the business of self-revelation, which is a fundamental tenant of Christianity. He has made human beings uniquely capable of receiving what He is revealing. And more than that, He has given us the ability of responding to what we are receiving.  

He reveals himself, first of all, in creation. Secondly, He reveals himself in covenant, and thirdly, He reveals himself in Christ. This is how we go about discovering what God is really like.

Scripture: Exodus 34:6 - 34:7

Our Bad Moments

Pete Briscoe

Series: Our Bad Moments

After your bad moments—moments when you flat-out blow it—what do you do? Do you isolate yourself? Do you self-condemn? Do you struggle to seek forgiveness and to forgive yourself?

In this message from Luke 22, Pete Briscoe talks about the road back to intimacy with Jesus after we feel like we’ve disqualified ourselves.

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. 

Scripture: 1 Samuel 1 , 1 Samuel 2

Abiding for a Purpose, Part 2

Pete Briscoe

Series: Alive and Free

John 15 tells us that we’re abiding in Christ when we’re living in Him and He’s living in us. And then goes on to explain that it’s through our abiding in Christ that we will bear much fruit and prove to be His disciples.

What do disciples of Jesus Christ do? The great commission from Jesus is for us to “Go therefore and make disciples…” (Matthew 28:19). So, how are you doing making disciples?

For many of us, just the idea makes us tongue-tied and our palms sweat. Why do we get flustered over the idea of making disciples for Jesus, whom we love and trust?  Maybe it’s because we’ve made it more difficult and complicated than it actually is.

In this message, Pete Briscoe teaches from John 2 and John 15 to show how simple, rich, deep, and beautiful abiding is, and what bearing fruit looks like in the life of a disciple who is abiding in Jesus.

Discover the Real You, Part 2

Pete Briscoe

Series: Alive and Free

Do you ever doubt yourself—thinking you’re the worst team player, the worst speaker, or maybe the worst sinner among professing Christians? 

What you believe about yourself determines how you see yourself. So, if you think you’re the worst sinner, you’ll start to see yourself as dirty, or as a liar, or as unfaithful, or whatever.

But Scripture says in Colossians 1:22, “But now he has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation…” Even if you don’t feel holy and without blemish, this is how God sees you! Do you believe it? If His view of you doesn’t match how you see yourself, who has the right view of you? 

In this message, Pete Briscoe helps you sort through this identity conflict so you can find contentment and satisfaction in knowing who you truly are in Christ.

Renewed Self-Image

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Spiritual Renewal

Robert Burns, the Scottish poet, wrote, "Oh that God the gift would give us, to see ourselves as others see us." This can be helpful—and devastating! But what really matters is that we see ourselves from the divine perspective. This view yields a true self image!

Scripture: Colossians 3:9 - 3:11

Renewed Disciplines

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Spiritual Renewal

The orientation of much modern spirituality is inward. That of Christian spirituality is upward and outward. Not that the inward is neglected but it requires a focus on "things above" to motivate and empower us to discipline what we find within ourselves.

Scripture: Colossians 3:5 - 3:8

Renewed Focus

It is generally agreed that the Western world is in need of spiritual revival. Historically, cultures have been revived when the church has been renewed. But the church is renewed one believer at a time. So let us pursue personal renewal beginning with a renewed focus.

Freedom from Our Flesh, Part 2

Pete Briscoe

Series: Alive and Free

There’s a conflict that happens inside of us regarding how we choose to live. We either live in our flesh or by the Spirit. The choice is ours, and it’s a choice that we might make numerous times every day.

As Christians, we are to live by the Spirit. But how do we do that? What does it look like to walk by the Spirit—and just as important—what does it look like when we’re not walking by the Spirit?

In this message, Pete Briscoe teaches from Galatians 5:16 to deepen our understanding of what it means to live a life that overcomes our fleshly desires, aligns with the Holy Spirit, and is completely dependent on Jesus.

A child to say they’re sorry, reconciliation, or an important prayer to be answered? Maybe you’re waiting for the bullying or betrayal to stop—or lying, hating, injustice, corruption, or hurt. Or perhaps you are in a crisis of faith that needs to be resolved.

I feel isolated, marginalized, full of self-doubt—a failure!

Why do they seem to be living in freedom while you feel chained? What do they know about Christ that you don’t know?

In this message, Pete Briscoe teaches from Galatians 2:20 to show you how to break free from carrying the burdens you weren’t meant to carry and live instead the adventurous and abundant life that Christ has called you to!

What or Who Do You Worship? Part 2

Pete Briscoe

Series: Finding Contentment

An idol is a person or thing that is greatly admired, loved, or revered. Often, our idols aren’t as obvious as worshiping a carved image of a goddess. They are less conspicuous, like compulsive shopping, abusing alcohol, or emotional eating. Or it might be binging on hours of our favorite television show or holding someone in too high regard. As Christians, an idol is looking to anything other than Jesus to meet our every physical, emotional, and spiritual need. 

In this message, Pete Briscoe talks openly about letting go and breaking free from our dependence on the idols we keep hidden in our hearts and discovering true contentment that never fades.

We all like “stuff”—the new, the fancy, the expensive, and the flashy. And many of us believe that life is better when we have more possessions. In fact, there are pastors who have falsely taught that if we please God, He’ll bless us with material wealth. But the short-lived excitement we feel with each purchase is fleeting. And soon we’re looking for the next purchase to ignite those feelings again. 

In this message, Pete Briscoe talks about our excess stuff that only gets in the way of our finding true and long-lasting contentment in our lives. And he provides an antidote to our over-buying that will glorify God.

Anxiety can be described is a low-grade, ongoing feeling of dread and stress—and is extremely debilitating.  As a result of situations in which we find ourselves in the 21st Century, many people are going through life experiences that are anxiety-producing! The question is: How do we cope?

In this message, Stuart Briscoe takes us to Philippians 4, where the apostle Paul—writing from prison—spoke about how rejoicing and thanks-giving lead to an understanding of the inner peace of God. Learning to live in and experience the presence of His peace offers the answer to our anxiety.

Experiencing Peace

Series: Experiencing Peace

It’s ironic that Christmastime seems to have less peace than any other time of the year despite the angels appearing in the sky to the shepherds after Jesus was born and proclaiming peace on earth.  Jesus came to bring peace, yet stresses around the holiday tend to elevate everything we’re struggling with, sending peace further and further out of our reach. 

So many of us know that peace is a path that’s hard to find—so how do we find it?  In this message, Pete takes us through Zechariah’s song in Luke 1 and gives us hope that peace can be found, in any season of life.

Weathering the Storms of Life, Part 2

Jill Briscoe

Series: The Best of 2018

Life is full of squalls—sudden unannounced and unexpected storms that can lead us to question if God is in control of our lives. Death, sickness, unemployment, broken relationships, fears and failures are some of the troubles Satan uses to swamp us with doubt, usually when we’re already stressed and exhausted. 

How do you respond when you’re hit with the squalls of life? Are you like the disciples in Mark 4 who wondered why Jesus slept while their boat was sinking, or do you believe God is in as much control when He’s seemingly asleep as when He’s obviously awake? Do you pray, “Don’t let there be another squall”? Or do you see storms as part of God’s plan for your life? 

Teaching from the Gospel of Mark, Jill Briscoe addresses the issues of suffering and faith, challenging us to examine our beliefs in God in the midst of trouble.

Scripture: Mark 4:35 - 4:41

Weathering the Storms of Life, Part 1

Jill Briscoe

Series: The Best of 2018

Life is full of squalls—sudden unannounced and unexpected storms that can lead us to question if God is in control of our lives. Death, sickness, unemployment, broken relationships, fears and failures are some of the troubles Satan uses to swamp us with doubt, usually when we’re already stressed and exhausted. 

How do you respond when you’re hit with the squalls of life? Are you like the disciples in Mark 4 who wondered why Jesus slept while their boat was sinking, or do you believe God is in as much control when He’s seemingly asleep as when He’s obviously awake? Do you pray, “Don’t let there be another squall”? Or do you see storms as part of God’s plan for your life?

Knowing God's Will for My Life, Part 2

Pete Briscoe

Series: The Best of 2018

Do you ever hear people say, “God told me to do that,” and think, did He really “tell” you? You hear others claim they know God’s will for their life, but how do you really know what God wants?

We can look in Scripture and see, generally, what God wants for His followers, but what does He want for each of us individually? Maybe there’s a decision you’re grappling with now—who to marry, which college to attend, or a major career or lifestyle choice. In this message, Pete Briscoe gives clear guidance on how to hear the Holy Spirit and discover God’s best life for you.

Scripture: Romans 12:1 - 12:2

The Fire That Ignites Our Faith, Part 2

Jill Briscoe

Series: The Best of 2018

Jesus said it was better that He leave earth so the Holy Spirit could come. He was one body amongst the people, but the Spirit would come to live inside of us. The Holy Spirit acts as a Fire that sets our souls ablaze and gives us the power to do things that are beyond our own strength.

Scripture: John 14:15 - 14:20

Prayer and Healing, Part 2

Stuart Briscoe

Series: The Best of 2018

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.

Who Is the Disciple Philip?

Pete Briscoe

Series: Everyday Disciples

Do you believe that Jesus can do miracles in your life? Jesus’ disciple Philip was an analytical, practical kind of guy, the one who would handle the details of the disciples’ travel arrangements. This responsible, systematic personality, however, led him to have a hard time believing in the supernatural power of Jesus. Yet Jesus took the opportunity to give Philip, and us, glimpses of how powerful Jesus really is! 

In this message, Pete Briscoe introduces us to Philip and encourages us to avoid Philip’s mistakes and fully embrace Jesus’ supernatural power.

Scripture: John 1:43
