    Jesus–For All
    Series: Crazy Love
    Some people argue that the church divides people more than it unites them. But God's Word today shows us that it's only the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ as Savior that unites literally every single person together as one. The Gospel is the message for all people, because Jesus is the Savior of all people!

    The Dear Cross
    Series: Crazy Love
    There's an old German theological phrase, "Das Liebe Kreuz" which means "The Dear Cross." While Christians can understand why Jesus' cross is dear to us, the phrase isn't just talking about Jesus' cross, but the crosses that we bear as Christians too! How can suffering for our faith, and suffering in general be something "dear" to us, when we're always trying to alleviate or eradicate suffering from our lives? Hear Jesus' words, as he reminds us why the cross isn't just a necessity, but a blessing!

    Hands of Betrayal
    Have you ever wondered how Judas went from being a disciple of Jesus to the one who's the poster boy of betrayal? Is it possible that the same thing could happen to you? Let's look at the life of Judas as a warning about the dangers of unrepentant sin, and as a reminder of God's grace.

    Why Would God Do That?
    Series: Crazy Love
    Why would God do that? It seems so unlike the God of grace, mercy, and love that we know to make such a heinous command to one of his most faithful followers! Watch Pastor Troy's sermon to see what God's command to Abraham to sacrifice his one and only son is really all about, and to see how this Bible account is chocked full of meaning for your life and eternity!

    Jesus Gets Personal
    Series: Prove It!
    Does God care about you personally? Or is he like a clockmaker, who crafted and created the world, then just steps back and lets the world work itself out without any interaction or intervention on our behalf? Things like sickness, struggle, and suffering make it seem like that. But in today's sermon, we'll see how God uses even sickness, suffering, and struggle as means to show his personal love for each and every person!

    Authority That Makes You Listen
    Series: Prove It!
    There are some people in life, who, when they talk, you listen! We listen to those people because they have authority--either authority given to them by someone else, or they're an authority in a particular subject because of their experience and expertise. What about Jesus? Do you think that he has that authority that makes us listen, and take his words to heart? In today's sermon, we'll see two proofs of Jesus' authority, and why we need to listen when he talks!
