One of the most familiar stories of Jesus is that of His meeting with the Samaritan woman at the well in John 4. The story is simple and straightforward, but the truths expounded upon in it offer some very real implications for us today. Christ wants your life to move in the direction He has planned for you, and He's preparing for your divine appointment to make that happen. In this lesson, Dr. Mark Lantz examines Christ's interaction with this woman, what He says to her about her life, her worship, and her very way of thinking, and what He may be saying to us today through this woman at the well. Life on Purpose is a teaching series from Dr. Mark Lantz who, along with his wife Crystal, are the lead pastors of Christian Center Church in South Bend, Indiana. Dr. Lantz’s teaching series is designed to take practical and relevant truths from the Word of God and empower us to live the life we were designed to live.

We are constantly concerned with the current. What is happening right now, and how does it affect me? What do I do right now to move on to the next moment? How am I doing at this moment? Paying attention to the now is important, but many times, in this rush of current consciousness, we forget that Scripture has many words about FINISHING well. What can we do now to set us up to not only make it to the goal, but stride over the finish line in triumph? Join Dr. Mark Lantz as he examines some Scriptural principles about finishing your race well.
Get in the Game
Father's Day 2019 • June 16, 2019 • Dr. Mark Lantz
This Father's Day, it is time to remind men of who they are called to be in Christ. It is time for men to get a revelation from God about the life they are destined to live. It is time for men to get back in the game and step up to be the leaders and guides they were created to be. The story of Jacob has a lot of insight about identity and returning to the will of God for us today. Join Dr. Mark Lantz as he dives into Jacob's encounter with God at Penuel to discover what it means to truly Get in the Game.
Your Personal CIA
June 9, 2019 • Dr. Mark Lantz
The Central Intelligence Agency serves the U.S. government in collecting intelligence and information about international affairs to assist U.S. leaders in making decisions. But believers in Christ have their own personal "CIA" Who assists us in living our lives according to the will of God and following His plan for our lives. The Holy Spirit was given to us as a helper so we could live holy and righteous lives, according to the will of Almighty God. But many people have no idea Who the Holy Spirit is or how He functions. Join Dr. Mark Lantz on this Pentecost Sunday as he looks through the Scriptures to help you understand Who the Holy Spirit is and how He will help you live the life God intends for you to live.
