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.

Jill Briscoe

Series: A View from the Porch Swing

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."

Rest Stops, Part 2

Jill Briscoe

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 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.

A Dream for the Church

Pete Briscoe

Series: The Essence of Christian Living

There’s a lot of debate about what the church is supposed to focus on. Some say it should be primarily concerned with bringing people to Christ, while others believe the focus should be on maturing existing believers.

So, how do we know if we’re “doing church” right? Can we be certain that we’re making an impact in ways that matter most?

In this message, Pete Briscoe takes you to 1 John to outline God’s dream for the church. You’ll discover a lesson that goes beyond the debate of men and becomes an entirely new and fulfilling way of life!

Pete Briscoe

Do you ever beat yourself up over a failure or a sin struggle you can’t seem to shake?

Culture seems to teach that when we fall short, we’re no longer as lovable or valuable—we’re failures. Because of this, we can become consumed with negative, self-condemning thoughts that can leave us feeling paralyzed. But is this what Jesus wants for us? What does He think of us—even when we mess up? 

In this message, Pete Briscoe takes us to 1 John to share how we can be freed from self-condemnation and start living in the light of how God really sees us.

Believers Who Sin, Part 2

Pete Briscoe

Series: The Essence of Christian Living

What do sinners do? They sin. Sinning comes naturally and is to be expected from people who don’t know Jesus. The battle against sin truly begins after you accept Jesus into your life. It’s at that point where you begin to feel the pull toward sinning – yet also feel a counter-pull that makes it difficult to sin. Why? Because you’re now a saint, and sinning is no longer a natural behavior for you. Instead of being a sinner saved by grace, you’re a saint who sometimes sins!

How does this sin battle play out in the life of a believer? That’s what Pete Briscoe teaches in this message from 1 John 3:4-10 where you’ll find hope for victory in your battle against sin.

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.

Do Nothing, Part 2

Pete Briscoe

Series: You Need Rest

Jesus’ first instruction to the faithful disciples before He ascended to heaven was to do nothing! That was their first assignment. It sounds crazy considering there were millions of people who needed to hear the Good News of salvation through Jesus. And yet, Jesus told them to stay put in Jerusalem and do nothing—nothing except to wait for the Holy Spirit.

Why was this instruction so important and instrumental as the early church was launched? What can we learn from studying Acts that will add new life to our work for the Kingdom?

In this message Pete Briscoe applies this important teaching from Jesus to today’s disciples and asks the question: What would our lives look like if instead of doing good things for God, we asked the Holy Spirit to do God-things through us?

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.

The Beginning of the End

Stuart Briscoe

Series: When Will Christ Return?

After speaking out against the sad spiritual condition of Israel, Jesus predicted that the Temple, the center of the nation’s religious life, would be destroyed. The disciples assumed that meant the end of the world and immediately wanted to know “When?”

How Can I Love God?

Jill Briscoe

Series: Living Love

Is there a “good” thing distracting you from loving Jesus? It can be tempting to dedicate yourself to busyness and miss one of the most important things Jesus asks of you—love. Good things are absolutely worthless without love.

In this message, Jill Briscoe studies the story of Martha and Mary to uncover the choice that’s yours to make in order to love Jesus with all your heart, soul, and strength.

Scripture: Luke 10:38 - 10:42

How Can I Like Myself Without Being Proud?

Jill Briscoe

Series: Living Love

Is there a difference between a healthy self-image and pride? We read in 1 Corinthians 8:1 that while knowledge “puffs up,” love “builds up.”

How do you put your gifts and God-given potential to use and remain humble in the process? How can you be confident and assured in God’s leading and not entertain a high view of yourself?

In this message, Jill Briscoe teaches from Scripture to show you how to balance this so you’re free to forget yourself and focus instead on other people and the work God has for you.

Scripture: 1 Corinthians 13

The Meaning of Love, Part 2

Stuart Briscoe

Series: The Meaning of Love

We read in I Corinthians 13 a clear and complete description of love. This is the type of love our world is craving. The problem is we are so confused on the subject of love, which of course, is at the root of any kind of relationship, and particularly, any kind of friendship. We need to define the word, identify the various types, explore the source, and understand the meaning of love.

Envy is something many of us struggle with, especially in today’s culture. The problem is that all too soon envy of what someone owns or has accomplished morphs into jealousy where we don’t want them to have or enjoy what they have!

In this message, Jill Briscoe gives practical insight to help free us from the burden of want and instead rejoice in the triumphs of others.

How Can I Be More Patient?

Jill Briscoe

Series: Living Love

We’re often tempted to live our lives out of our emotions where ugly things like frustration, anger, jealousy, and impatience rise to the surface. But love is patient. Love wins over difficult people. Love wins over unlovable people. But it’s never something we can do in our own strength.

In this message, Jill Briscoe explores patience as an outpouring of love and why allowing God to teach us long-suffering will transform the gift of love we give to others into a kindness the world seldom sees.

Scripture: 1 Corinthians 13

Merging Two Kingdoms, Part 2

Pete Briscoe

Series: Extraordinary Marriage

If you look behind the conflicts, arguments, and unresolved disputes in your marriage you’ll likely find the root problem is that you and your spouse are fighting for control. The human quest for control is nothing new—it’s been plaguing relationships since the beginning of time. And the tension that results from guarding your turf prevents your marriage from flourishing.

In this message, Pete Briscoe talks about how our need for control is really just a symptom of something deeper. He discusses what it takes to erase the boundaries of our individual kingdoms in order to enjoy the oneness that God intended for our marriages.

Scripture: Matthew 18 , Matthew 20
