Blessed, Stressed & Depressed
December 17, 2017 • Pastor Blake Wilson
We continue in our series Set the Captives Free, Pastor Blake teaches from the book of 2 Corinthians and poses a major question to everyone. How are you doing? No, how are you really doing? Many time when we are asked this question we give a "christian" answer such as "blessed and highly favored". In 2 Corinthians 7:5-7 Paul reveals his heart and honestly writes that he is blessed but also stressed and depressed. This should inspire all of us to be more honest when asked this question.

A Different Type of Freedom
November 26, 2017 • Joseph Chinn
Many times as believers, we treat God like the CEO of a company. If we don't make mistakes and work hard we believe we can go higher on the Christian corporate ladder, earning more in God's eyes.

Was I Born This Way?
November 5, 2017 • Pastor Blake Wilson
We are ALL born into sin. We were born to crave and fulfill our sinful pleasures and lustful patterns. In this present day, we are embracing sexual culture instead of scriptural culture. We have no ability to get ourselves out of sin. Apart from Jesus Christ, we have no hope. Jesus is the only one who can save us.

In the Christian church there has been an assumption that homosexual sin is worse than heterosexual sin.
