“The Word became flesh” is the way the Bible describes the most stupendous visitation of planet earth from outer space. The identity of the Word, the reasons for His visitation, and its contemporary relevance should be considered carefully.

Every Soul Needs a Break

Pete Briscoe

Series: Every Soul Needs a Break

One of the ironies of the Christmas season is that Jesus came to bring rest and to have us rest in Him.  And yet the season of His birth is probably the least restful time of the year.  We get so busy that “duty” distracts us from “deity.” Pete teaches how to break out of the cycle and refocus on our relationship with Him.

Scripture: Luke 10:38 - 10:42

Stop Trying to Please God

Pete Briscoe

Series: The Best of 2018

We all want to be pleasing to God. The question is: do we truly understand what pleases Him?

In this message, Pete Briscoe shows us what Scripture says about how to please God, and you might be surprised to learn that it’s not something we can accomplish through our own effort, no matter how hard we try.

Scripture: Hebrews 10:38 - 11:16

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

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.

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.

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

Who Is the Disciple John?

Pete Briscoe

Series: Everyday Disciples

The disciple John was a man surrounded by death. As the last of Jesus’ 12 disciples left alive, he had to face the death of all his friends in some horrible ways. Yet he was a man who truly knew what Life was! Through his writings, we see that John had a firm grasp on what true Life really is and where it is found—in Christ alone. 

In this message, Pete Briscoe walks us through some of John’s writings and points us to where eternal, satisfying, intimate, true Life is found.

Scripture: John 20:31

Who Is the Disciple James?

Pete Briscoe

Series: Everyday Disciples

We all have things we’re passionate about. While we’d like to say that our passions are for noble and selfless things, like helping the poor or feeding the hungry, most likely our passions take shape while we’re stuck sitting in traffic or watching a bad call from the ref in a sporting event or feeling personally affronted by what someone says. Jesus’ disciple James was no exception. He was a man full of misplaced, dangerous passion. But allowing his passion to be led by the Holy Spirit changed James into a man whose passion was dangerous—in a good way! 

In this message, Pete Briscoe shares with us some stories from James’ life and guides us in dealing with our passion and the passionate people around us.

Scripture: Luke 9:51

Who Is the Disciple Matthew?

Pete Briscoe

Series: Everyday Disciples

Ever feel like you don’t belong? Like you’re not in the “in” group? Jesus’ disciple Matthew certainly did—as a tax collector, he was rejected and hated by his fellow Jews and by those in the “in” group. When Jesus called Matthew to be one of his followers, Matthew left his sinful lifestyle without hesitation—and then called his fellow “outsiders” to do the same! 

In this message, Pete Briscoe gives us the background of Matthew’s story and shows us what this story really teaches us about Jesus himself.

Scripture: Luke 18:8 - 18:14 , Matthew 23 , Matthew 9:9 - 9:13

Ordinary Men, Extraordinary God

Pete Briscoe

Series: Everyday Disciples

When you think of Jesus’ disciples, what do you picture? Do you picture superheroes or great, powerful men? The truth is that the disciples were just ordinary, everyday men! This group, hand-picked by Jesus, included no scholars, religious leaders, or especially talented men. We have examples of when they lacked faith, humility, spiritual understanding, and power. Yet despite their ordinariness, these men became testimonies of God’s glory when He worked in and through them. 

In this message, Pete Briscoe introduces us to this ragtag group of men and shows us how God’s power changed them from ordinary to extraordinary.

Scripture: Mark

Heart Ache, Part 2

Jill Briscoe

Series: Heart Hunger

Sometimes we think that if we could only get what we want, we would finally be happy. Solomon thought that, too. He had a “getting” obsession, never denying himself anything he wanted, and he became “greater by far than anyone in Jerusalem before [him].” 

But all these things didn’t bring Solomon the happiness he was looking for. Solomon and you and I are all trying to soothe a heart ache that can’t be cured by “things” but only by finding our purpose, the reason we were made!

Ever feel like something is missing, like you just don’t belong? You probably feel that way because it is true! God created us for Himself and put eternity in our hearts—we were not made for here. So how do we make the most of this life where “everything is meaningless, a chasing after the wind” (as Solomon wrote in Ecclesiastes) in a world which is not our home?

How You Finish Matters, Part 2

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Finishing Strong

“We need to go out and get into this society of ours as only seniors can and be agents of God’s kingdom-building in our day and age.” - Stuart Briscoe

In this encouraging message, Stuart Briscoe reminds us that if we’re still alive, God has a purpose for us. We shouldn’t equate retiring with stepping away from God’s work for us. Until we breathe our dying breath, we are God’s workers and He’s in need of workers who are willing to rise to the challenge of expanding His kingdom by waking each morning and saying, “I’m available, Lord, what would you have me do today?”

Stuart Briscoe sends out a rally cry to seniors—and seniors to be—asking them to rise up in faith, and actively look for God’s direction in their lives. God promises those who seek Him with their hearts that they will find Him, but He does this through workers. How You Finish Matters because God needs workers! Will you be available for God to work through you well into the golden years of your life?

The Role of Seniors in the Church

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Improving with Age

The church should be a place for all – the boomers, the millennials, the seniors, and the juniors. But do we revere both youth and seniors as essential elements to the church? Do we believe the principle of unity in diversity can make the church stronger?   

In this message, Stuart Briscoe challenges churches to recognize and encourage the talent that lies in seniors. And he challenges seniors to rise up and show themselves as available and indispensable to the church body.

God's View of Aging

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Improving with Age

The Apostle Paul had the right attitude on aging. He tells us that while we are outwardly diminishing, inwardly our spirits are daily renewed. In other words, don’t focus on the physical signs of aging. Focus on the fact that every day we spend in this world, our Spirits are transforming and preparing us for the work God has for us today!

How do we grasp that concept and apply it to our lives? In this message, Stuart Briscoe looks to Scripture to help us number our days in accordance with God’s eternal plan. 

Scripture: Colossians 3:9 - 3:10 , Romans 8:11 - 8:21

A Worldly View of Aging

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Improving with Age

None of us know how many days we have left, but we all want our days on Earth to count for something. It’s easy for us to feel like we’ve missed the mark if we evaluate our lives by worldly standards.

In this message, Stuart Briscoe takes a hard look at how even while we are outwardly wasting away, God wants us to seek things that are above so we can live well all our days.

Scripture: 2 Corinthians 4:16 , Ecclesiastes 11:9 - 12:5

The Business of Living

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Improving with Age

If you’ve had a birthday this year, you’re aging! But no matter how old you are, God doesn’t want you hung up on the fact that you’re another year older. He wants you to get serious about the business of living your days in cooperation with His eternal plan!

In this message, Stuart Briscoe teaches from Psalm 90 to help us let go of our worldly concern of aging and instead focus each day as another opportunity to be a part of God’s work.

Scripture: Psalm 90

Pete Briscoe

Series: Better: A New and Living Way

Yes, the world is changing and it will continue to change, often in directions that are counter to Christian beliefs. But don’t overlook how in the midst of change the church can stand out all the more as a vibrant and beautiful place of love, truth, and grace. 

In this message, Pete dissects Hebrews 13 to show us what the church looks like in exile and how to remain steadfast and stand confidently in Christ, no matter the circumstance.

Life Is Better Outside the Camp

Pete Briscoe

Series: Better: A New and Living Way

Quite often those who stand with Jesus don’t register high on the popularity meter. But we know that what this world offers us can never compare to all that we’ve been promised in eternity.

In this message, Pete Briscoe reads the moving baptism testimony of his daughter who shares how she’d rather be in the out crowd with Jesus than the in crowd without Him. It’s an inspiring message that encourages us to value our chosen place outside the mainstream camp. 

Scripture: Hebrews 13:9 - 13:14

Pete Briscoe

Series: Better: A New and Living Way

When bad things happen in your life, do you think it’s because God doesn’t love you, or that He’s punishing you because of your sin? 

In this message, Pete Briscoe talks about the true message of Hebrews 12 regarding the purpose for pain in our lives. You might be surprised how God can make all things work together for good.

Pete Briscoe

Series: Better: A New and Living Way

Does your Christian life feel like you’re running an uphill cross-country race? We are called to “run with perseverance the race marked out for us.” But how do we continue the race without growing weary and losing heart? 

In this message, Pete Briscoe challenges us to deal with hindrances to our faith so that we not only finish the race, but we enjoy it, too.

What Did Jesus Say About Faithfulness?

Stuart Briscoe

Series: But What Did Jesus Say About It?

One look at the news and you may ask yourself, “Are we living in the last days?” With so much uncertainty going on around us, we may be wondering if the end is drawing near.

After Jesus told the disciples that Jerusalem’s huge, ornate temple would be destroyed and not one stone left standing, they were concerned about when that would happen. They asked Him for signs to watch for, clues so that they could be ready. Instead, Jesus told them the only thing they needed to be worried about was standing firm. So what can we do to stand firm and be faithful? 

In this message, Stuart explains Jesus’ brief parable about the budding fig tree and encourages us to stand firm in our faith.

Scripture: Luke 21:5 - 21:38

What Did Jesus Say About Wealth?

Stuart Briscoe

Series: But What Did Jesus Say About It?

We all have to deal with money, and we all deal with money in different ways, from penny pinchers to big spenders, from those living paycheck-to-paycheck to those investing millions. If we asked for financial advice from those around us, we would probably get many different answers. But consider we came into this world with nothing and we leave this world with nothing. Everything we have between coming into this world and leaving it is entrusted to us from God. So what did Jesus say about how we use our wealth? 

In this message, Stuart explains Jesus’ parable about the dishonest steward and shows us that what we do with what we’ve been given can have a long-lasting impression.

Scripture: Luke 16:1 - 16:18


October 24, 2018

What Did Jesus Say About God?

Stuart Briscoe

Series: But What Did Jesus Say About It?

When you picture God, what do you see? You might picture someone staunch, reserved, and dignified with long, white hair and a beard, perhaps something similar to Michelangelo’s portrayal on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. The Pharisees also had ideas of what God is like, so they objected when Jesus told some parables that gave a portrayal of God that did not fit their picture of who He is. 

In this message, Stuart uses three well-known parables of Jesus to show us what the Father is really like and give us a glimpse at God’s heart toward us.

Scripture: Luke 15:1 - 15:32


October 23, 2018

What Did Jesus Say About Humility? Part 2

Stuart Briscoe

Series: But What Did Jesus Say About It?

We live in a culture of getting what we want when we want it. Language in advertising tells us that we “deserve” the best and we should get what we want. From trash-talk in the sports arena to commercials on television, self-promotion and self-aggrandizement are everywhere. With so many self-centered messages around us, what are we to do with humility? 

When Jesus was invited to dinner in a Pharisee’s home, he told two parables about people who were lacking in humility and what happened to them as a result of their arrogance.

In this message, Stuart teaches us what humility really is and challenges us stop listening to what our culture tells us and start listening to what God says.

Scripture: Luke 14:1 - 14:24

What Did Jesus Say About Calamities?

Stuart Briscoe

Series: But What Did Jesus Say About It?

Why do bad things happen to good people? This is a question many people ask, particularly when we see tragedies occurring around us. In the ancient world, the general thinking was that if you were good, God would bless you in material ways for being good. So if something bad happened to you, the community would think that you had done something bad to deserve it. When Jesus was questioned about such things—whose sin caused which disasters—His response was countercultural and personal. 

In this message, Stuart helps us gain new insight on the parable of the unfruitful fig tree and shows us how to respond when calamity strikes.

Scripture: Luke 13:1 - 13:9

Fixing a Broken Marriage

Pete Briscoe

Series: Healing Broken Relationships

Oftentimes, we blame our spouse for the problems in our marriages and then set out trying to change them. However, it’s God’s job to fix our spouses, not ours. And, if we’re really honest, He probably needs to fix us, too. 

In this message, Pete Briscoe teaches on how to repair our less than perfect marriages. Surprisingly, it has more to do with us individually than with our spouses!

Scripture: 1 Thessalonians

How to Repair Relationships

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Healing Broken Relationships

Many of us struggle to live well when we experience difficulties in our relationships. We might even live in a state of denial—shrugging our shoulders and denying individual responsibility. How do we overcome the urge to ignore tough situations? 

In this message, Stuart Briscoe encourages us to repair our relationships and takes us to the story of Joseph to learn how to heal them.

God's Plan for Reconciliation, Part 2

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Healing Broken Relationships

Too often we focus on issues that divide us as a people instead of the things that unify us. And when that happens, there’s the potential to stay within your collective group of like-minded people and treat others differently, maybe even judgmentally. How do you keep yourself from a judgmental worldview so that you can see people as God sees them—precious and in need of a Savior? 

In this message, Stuart Briscoe examines how the apostle Paul addresses issues that divide people. There’s only one true way to overcoming what divides us, and if we embrace it, the effects can be revolutionary.

Cultivate Contentment, Part 2

Jill Briscoe

Series: Spiritual Arts

Those of us who played organized sports in school may remember a time when the race or game was not going well, and we just wanted to give up. For many of us, it was the shouts from the sidelines that kept us going. We could hear the coach shouting, “Keep going—you can do it!” 

In the same way the coach keeps the team going, Christ keeps us going and guides us home. We just have to learn to turn everything in our lives over to Him. In this message, Jill explains how we can learn to let God “coach” us and find contentment in every circumstance.

Learn to Be Small

Jill Briscoe

Series: Spiritual Arts

What people come to mind when thinking of those who have a servant attitude? Missionaries? Pastors? Yourself? Do you think that having a humble attitude is important? The apostle Paul had a servant heart and attitude. He continually gave himself away to benefit those around him. As a result, he was able to bring many people to Christ. 

We can impact those around us just as Paul did if we learn the spiritual art of humility. In this message, Jill explains how having a self-sacrificing attitude can impact others.

Chains of Blessing, Part 2

Jill Briscoe

Series: Spiritual Arts

What do you do when you are suffering through a hard time? Many of us sulk, complain, and feel sorry for ourselves. Others put on a strong face, but when they are alone, the fear and sadness take over, and they break down. Much of the apostle Paul’s life was spent suffering—most of the time in jail. But unlike many of us, Paul was joyful no matter what his circumstance. 

This “spiritual art” of contentment was something Paul learned—and it wasn’t easy. In this message, Jill uses Paul’s life as an example of how we can learn contentment, joy, and peace of mind no matter what we are going through.

What Happens After You Sin?

Pete Briscoe

Series: The Essence of Christian Living

As a believer, what do you think will happen if you sin? Do you fear you’ll lose your salvation or be punished by God? Do you think God will turn His back on you until you do something to make Him happy again?

Understanding the new covenant is essential in understanding how God deals with your sin—past, present, and future.

In this message based on 1 John 2:1-2, Pete Briscoe teaches about life after sin and how you can experience hope, joy, and reconciliation with God. 

Scripture: 1 John 2:1 - 2:2

Clean from Sin, Part 2

Pete Briscoe

Series: The Essence of Christian Living

After we sin, we can feel a bit grimy. Our sin sticks to us like dirt, and we can have an itching desire to scrub ourselves clean.

Some of us confess to a priest to be made clean – others talk directly to Jesus. But in either case, many of us were made to believe we must confess every sin – no matter how large or small – in order to receive Christ's forgiveness.

In this message based on 1 John 1:5-10, Pete Briscoe shakes things up by asking whether John is talking to believers in this text, or to people pretending to be believers?  Knowing which you are makes all the difference in understanding the forgiveness of your sins – past, present, and future.

Just One Thing, Part 2

Pete Briscoe

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.
