How is it that Jonah heard God’s call so clearly and, yet totally missed the heart of God and everything became about him? In message 1 of “Jonah…more than just a fish,” consider takeaways as relational God plunged to the depths of the sea pursuing relationship with us.  Text: Jonah 1

Extend Empathy to One Another

Speaker: Brian Martin
Topics: empathy, mission

Brass Tacks

Speaker: Brian Martin
Topics: authority, holiness, Life

The enemy’s mission is clear-steal, kill, and destroy. Likewise, the mission of Jesus is clear-to bring life with abundance! When does abundant life begin? To whom does it apply? By what authority is such a declaration? In a world that has devalued life and stripped the Word of authority, consider afresh the brass tacks of God to such questions.  Text: John 10:10; Psalm 139
