What Happens at the End? Part 2

Pete Briscoe

Series: How the Story Ends

Have you ever played the “Would you rather...” game? It’s where you’re given two less than appealing situations and pick which you’d rather experience. For example, would you rather walk over hot coals or stand on a fire ant mound for 10 minutes? Usually neither option sounds inviting.

This Is Our Future

Pete Briscoe

Series: How the Story Ends

There’s often debate about whether to read Scripture as literal or symbolic. In Daniel 11, we don’t have to debate because all that was predicted 367 years before it happened in the Middle East and northern Africa came true with amazing accuracy. But it doesn’t end there. The chapter continues to predict events that have yet to take place—horrific events against Christians that will usher in a terrible season of persecution. This is our future, and we can bank on it happening just as it’s described.

In this message Pete Briscoe shares troubling news of events yet to happen but also shows us why we can put our fears aside—even when clouds of persecution overshadow Christians throughout the world.

God Will Keep His Promise

Pete Briscoe

Series: How the Story Ends

Have you ever been promised something that seemed too good to be true? As we struggle through trials we can lose sight of God’s future promise that someday believers will inherit the Kingdom of God.

In this message Pete Briscoe helps us understand what we’ve been invited to when we say “yes” to Jesus. Being a child of God doesn’t guarantee us a ride on “easy street,” but we have reason to be encouraged that the tough ride will be well worth it in the end.

Hanging in There

Pete Briscoe

In this message Pete Briscoe teaches from Daniel 7 to help us through the struggle of trying to understand God’s eternal plan and how to persevere until He decides to end the game of life.

Dealing with Our Differences—Chiseled, Part 2

Jill Briscoe

Series: Faith Enough to Finish

What is God using to chisel you into the image of Christ? Will you lie still in His hand and let Him do it? 

For Jeremiah, God was using his ministry partner, Baruch, to chisel and hammer him into shape. Jeremiah, too, was chiseling Baruch. Without the encouragement of the other, neither would have had faith enough to finish when their ministry got difficult. 

In this message, Jill describes how we can learn to work with and celebrate the differences between us and the people in our lives.

Great Is Thy Faithfulness—Morning by Morning, Part 2

Jill Briscoe

Series: Faith Enough to Finish

Trying to walk in faith is a day-by-day lesson in leaning on God. It’s figuring out moment-by-moment what a Christian life looks like—and it’s not easy. 

Jeremiah had to learn how to have faith like this when he was in the pit, when he was fighting despair and doubt. During this time, God was teaching Jeremiah to put his mind on Him, instead of on the troubles of life. 

Jeremiah’s testimony of learning faith morning by morning is a great lesson for us in pursuing faith, even in doubts and trials.

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.

Scripture: Luke 22

Comfort Through Unity

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Comfort for Troubled Hearts

Jesus assumed that His disciples would faithfully fulfill the commission He had given them and that as a result there would be future generations of believers, including present day believers. So when He prayed for future believers His prayer included us! That He prayed for us is highly significant. What He prayed for us should be clearly understood.

Scripture: John 17:20 - 17:26


June 18, 2020

Comfort Through Prayer

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Comfort for Troubled Hearts

When faced with a crisis do you find yourself prepared knowing where to turn, or do you panic and simply react? As Jesus faced the reality of the cross, He instinctively turned to His Father in prayer. Is prayer your first line of defense in a crisis? 

In this teaching, Stuart Briscoe looks to Jesus’ example to teach us about the comfort available to us through prayer. 

Scripture: John 17:1 - 17:19

Comfort Through Grief

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Comfort for Troubled Hearts

Dealing with grief and loss is something most people go through sometime in their lives. Trying to get through difficult situations on our own can leave us feeling hopeless and alone. 

The apostle Paul said, “We sorrow, but we do not sorrow as those who have no hope.” But is it possible for us to experience hope in the midst of grief?

In this message, Stuart Briscoe helps us to discover abundant life in all situations. Finding comfort during times of sorrow is possible when we know where to look.

Scripture: John 16:16 - 16:33

Comfort Through the Spirit

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Comfort for Troubled Hearts

Sometimes we try to understand how anything good can possibly come out of the bad things that happen to us. The disciples certainly felt like this when Jesus told them it was to their advantage that He would leave them via the Cross. The advantage of which He spoke to them is to our advantage too, so we need to be clear about the promise He gave to them and to us.

Scripture: John 16:5 - 16:15


June 15, 2020

Comfort Through Trials

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Comfort for Troubled Hearts

We know from personal experience that if something can go wrong, it will—and probably at the worst possible time. We navigate through all sorts of trials, but what if the trouble you face is because you’re a Christian?

Jesus tells us not to be surprised when we face troubles, because the world around us loves the darkness rather than the light. He also tells us to step out of our comfort zone, thoroughly convinced of who He is, ready to respond differently than the world.

In this message, Stuart Briscoe unpacks John 15 to show us how this kind of response is possible and how to find comfort through trials. 

Scripture: John 15:17 - 16:4


June 12, 2020

Comfort Through Relationship

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Comfort for Troubled Hearts

Are you in a dead-end relationship? Disappointed because that “special person” doesn’t meet all of your needs? We hear about situations like these all the time. 

It’s clear we’re created as relational beings, so why do we struggle so much with relationships? In this message Stuart Briscoe teaches about the ultimate relationship that brings both comfort and meaning to our lives.

Scripture: John 15:1 - 15:16


June 11, 2020

Comfort Through Trust

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Comfort for Troubled Hearts

Have you ever experienced disappointed hope? To put all your trust in someone or something only to find they were untrustworthy—to be fooled and have your hope shattered. Maybe that’s why we tend to distrust rather than to trust. 

Jesus said, “Trust God, trust Me, don’t let your hearts be troubled.” But what does it mean to trust in God in the midst of things that are deeply troubling or discouraging?

In this message, Stuart Briscoe reveals truth that helps us understand how these words of Jesus can be possible in our own life.

Scripture: John 14:1 - 14:14

We're Better Together, Part 2

Pete Briscoe

Series: Feeling Alone

It’s possible to live around the edge of Christian community instead of actually stepping into it. You can easily go to church every Sunday and not talk to a single person. Or, you can stream a Sunday service and watch it from the comfort of your living room couch. You’re free to isolate yourself, you have Jesus, you’re going to heaven, and He loves you—none of that will change.

But life here on earth is so much better when we share it together!

In this message, Pete Briscoe teaches from Acts chapter 2 where we learn how to avoid the discontentment, despair, and loneliness that isolation breeds and instead step into a rich and fulfilling life.

Scripture: Acts 2:42 - 2:47

The Danger of Isolation

Pete Briscoe

Series: Feeling Alone

In subtle ways, the world often encourages us to go it alone. We are taught to be independent from a young age, and the busyness of life can often leave little margin for genuine relationships. Sometimes rejection and other past wounds—and maybe even sin—keeps us from being part of an authentic community.

However, isolation is not what God has in mind for us. He designed us for interdependence, both for our benefit and the benefit of others. Living without community puts us in a dangerous and vulnerable position for Satan’s attacks.

In this message based on 1 Corinthians 12:11-31, Pete Briscoe teaches about the importance of living life together and shares how a huge slice of the good Life is waiting for you within an authentic, loving, Christ-centered community.

Scripture: 1 Corinthians 12:11 - 12:31

He provides comfort in reminding us that God is bigger than our problems. Not only that, but in His majesty, He still wants to cradle us in our times of weakness. 

Scripture: Isaiah 40

Weathering the Storms of Life, Part 2

Jill Briscoe

Series: Weathering the Storms of Life

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.

How Do I Know You Love Me, God?

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Who Are You, God?

Your perception of love is heavily influenced by your family and relational background. Because of this, you might tend to view God’s love based on your own standard of measurement, rather than on your understanding of what Scripture says about love. 

Stuart Briscoe challenges you to step away from your own perceptions of love, and embrace the truth about God’s love instead. When you can discover the reality of God’s love for you, you can experience a love that sparks peace and joy beyond explanation!

Scripture: 1 John 4:7 - 4:21

In this message, Stuart Briscoe shows you a clear answer to this question found in Psalm 8:1-9. The God of the universe cares deeply for you, and you’ll see you’ve been created for so much more than you might think.

He Comforts Me

Jill Briscoe

When trials and suffering come, where do we turn? We ought to turn to God, the God of all comfort. Suffering in this life is inevitable. David knew that. He wrote his psalms about that. But he wrote with the knowledge that God’s love brings comfort, encouragement, freshness, and life to those who pant after Him. 

In this message, Jill points us to the many resources for encouragement that God has already given us: His Holy Spirit, His word, and His people. God beckons us to bring encouragement to those around us.

It’s easy for us to question God when He chooses us for a task. We feel unqualified, like God has made a mistake. But God often chooses the unexpected to do His work. David was the definition of unexpected. He was the youngest, the smallest shepherd boy, but he was chosen by God to be king. 

In this message, Jill shows us that all of us have been anointed and given the ability to receive a calling and equipping from God.

Scripture: 1 Samuel 16

Experiencing God's Love on Life's Journey, Part 2

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Experiencing God's Love on Life's Journey

The driving force behind everything God does is love—His love for you.

That might be hard to believe at times, but the truth is that God, in His infinite love, foreknew, predestined, confirmed, called, justified, and glorified you!

And the ultimate display of His love is that your life journey will finish at a destination beyond your wildest dreams and vivid imagination—you will finish just like Jesus—glorified and with God in heaven.

Why would God orchestrate all of this for you?  In this message, Stuart Briscoe teaches from Romans to help you grasp the depth of His love so you can recognize and rest in it along life’s journey.

Scripture: Romans 5:9 - 5:10 , Romans 8:28 - 8:30

Chasing After Love

Pete Briscoe

Series: How Much I'm Loved

Do you find yourself living for the love and approval of others? Are you looking to others to meet your needs and satisfy your desire for acceptance?

Maybe you do the same thing with God—trying to please Him by performing and living well. Remaining in this trap of living to gain His approval will only prevent you from truly experiencing God’s outrageous love.

In this message, Pete Briscoe shows you how to stop living for God’s love and live in it instead. You’ll learn how to rest in the love He already has for you instead of spending your life chasing after it.

Scripture: 1 John 4:16 - 4:21

Life to the Full, Part 2

Pete Briscoe

Series: How Much I'm Loved

What keeps you from coming to Jesus? Is it your past or your pride? Are you concerned friends and family will outcast or belittle you for believing in Him? Or do you think you’re too far gone for Jesus to accept you?

The truth is we’re all a mess! We make bad choices that lead to unwelcomed consequences. And sometimes, we run from Jesus because of our shame and brokenness.

Jesus sees beyond your messiness and longs to transform your life. In this message, Pete Briscoe helps you break free from whatever might hinder you from coming to Jesus and being restored by His overwhelming love.

Scripture: Luke 5:27 - 5:39

How Deep Is the Love of Jesus

Pete Briscoe

Series: How Much I'm Loved

It’s difficult to understand the heavenly love of Jesus. And so we try to live impressively to win His affection. But there was never a moment in time when Jesus saw something in you and thought ... Hey, that’s impressive, I think I’ll love him.

The truth is Jesus’ love for you isn’t contingent on your behavior or performance. He has always loved you. Before the creation of time, before the foundation of the world, before you were created—He loved you.

In this message, Pete Briscoe teaches from Ephesians chapter 3 where the apostle Paul longs for the truth of God’s love to come alive inside you, so you can experience a depth of love that you never knew was possible.

Scripture: Ephesians 3:14 - 3:21

You Are God's Beloved, Part 2

Pete Briscoe

Series: How Much I'm Loved

Think of the person you love most in this world. Could you ever imagine standing by and doing nothing as your loved one was beaten, humiliated, and murdered?

God stood by and watched all these things happen to His beloved Son, Jesus. He allowed it because of His love for you! Does that reality move you? Does it give you a hint of His passionate love for you?

In this message, Pete Briscoe unwraps Ephesians to help you understand your worth to God so you can experience the overflowing love and grace that He has for His beloved children.

Scripture: Ephesians 1:7 - 1:10
