[RE]Vision - Week 2
The All-Included Vision • January 13, 2018 • Pastor Joseph S. Sissac
We have previously learned that many of the Children of Israel did not embrace God’s vision for their lives, but instead came up with a new vision and sought to fulfill it. This caused them to lose God’s favor and be forbidden to receive what He had promised them (Num. 14:36-45).
[RE]Vision - Week 1
The GOD VISION Prescription • January 6, 2018 • Pastor Joseph S. Sissac
The foresight of a God-inspired future. As Christians, it should be our desire to have GOD VISION. We should desire to see what He sees for ourselves and the world around us. God Vision is about much more than the function of our eyesight or imagination. Nearly everyone has that capacity, yet there are times when individuals see the exact same thing and interpret and them diﬀerently.
Climb or Crumble? Facing Life’s Mountains
December 31, 2017 • Pastor Joseph S. Sissac
In regards to mountains (problems, trials, and challenges in life) most believers only apply Matthew 17:20, “And He said to them, "Because of the littleness of your faith; for truly I say to you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you.”

The Best Investment
December 2, 2017 • Pastor Thomas Taper
As a time traveler, you have the ability to go back in time with your current knowledge. If you could go back in Time to invest in corporations like Apple, Google, wouldn’t you invest in that stock. Investing your gifts and time to the business of God’s Kingdom NOW is doing just that. Investing in the Kingdom of God is the Best Investment you can make.
ACTivate - Study to Show Yourself Approved
November 25, 2017 • Pastor Frances Huezo
This week we will study some of Paul’s last words on this Earth. Sensing that his death was near he summoned Timothy his beloved son in the faith asking him to go to him quickly and sharing with him specific instructions about his commitment to God and his responsibilities as a servant of God. LGPA: Life
ACTivate - Week 15
AN ACTIVATED LEGACY • November 18, 2017 • Pastor Joseph S. Sissac
The Apostle Paul finally arrived in Rome just as the Lord said he would. Yet the outcome of his presence and witness there is not depicted in scripture. Church history tells us that Paul was likely executed by the Roman emperor Nero. The fact is that we cannot know for certain what happened to Paul and many other early church leaders. Perhaps the Lord has intentionally concealed the details of how they died to encourage us to focus on the details of how they lived.
ACTivate - Week 12
Activated for a Cause • October 28, 2017 • Pastor Joseph S. Sissac
One of the most amazing things about the apostle Paul’s return to Jerusalem is the simple fact that he went back knowing the great threat that was before him. In Acts 21:13 he stated, “For I am ready not only to be bound, but even to die at Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus.” As we have seen previously in Acts and in the life of Christ, obedience unto death is another outcome of the outpouring.
ACTivate - Week 11
Pretending or Powerful? • October 21, 2017 • Pastor Joseph S. Sissac
While in Ephesus, “God was performing extraordinary miracles by the hands of Paul” and any lives were being changed for the glory of God. In many cities there were Jewish exorcists, also known as vagabond Jews, who used to travel from city to city invoking spells and incantations, supposedly expelling demons. It never worked. But the enemy has no problem performing in the dark to keep people from coming to the light.
ACTivate - Week 10
The Mars Hill Approach • October 14, 2017 • Pastor Joseph S. Sissac
In ancient Athens, Mars Hill was a place of debate and rhetoric. In many ways, their culture was very similar to that of ours today. The reality and usage of the internet, social media and an over-abundance of information have created a mindset and lifestyle for masses of people who LIVE TO TELL AND HEAR SOMETHING NEW. In Acts 16, the Holy Spirit reveals to us a plan and pattern for reaching the lost in this context as demonstrated by the Apostle Paul.
