Truly Happy

The Pursuit of Happiness

August 15, 2021 • Bill LaMorey • Matthew 5:10–12

How can we experience happiness even in hard times? When suffering and persecution are part of our lives, what can we pursue instead of happiness that will make us truly happy? Hear what Jesus has to say about this in the confusion of our Truly Happy series.

Pursuing Peace

August 8, 2021 • Dr. Nicholas Leadbeater

In this message, we look at the 7th of the Beatitudes - Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God. We discover that being a peacemaker means that we are responsible for sharing with others how they can have peace with God, pursuing peace in our relationships with other people, and seeking to bring peace between others.

The Heart of the Matter

August 1, 2021 • Dr. Nicholas Leadbeater • Matthew 5:8

In this message, we look at the 6th of the Beatitudes - Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God. We discover that being pure in heart means bringing our real self to God, not a mask, and that we need to honor God in our life. The reward of being pure in heart is that we will see God both now and in the life to come. Practical steps to becoming pure in heart are firstly admitting our need, then asking for God's help, and being willing to embrace continuous change.
