We’re all looking for the key to success. What does it take to be successful? What do we do once we’ve achieved this? Pastor Matt Jacobs breaks it down for us giving us a formula that leads us in a successful life tattooed by celebration: God’s plan + our obedience = Success.

God instructs us to honor one another, no questions asked. Even when it's hard, we honor. Even when we are wronged, we honor.

We are called to love and honor our parents and authority figures, along with anyone we come into contact with in our daily lives. Pastor Troy Gramling explores the topic of honor, how to implement this godly honor in your life, and how to extend this honor to all!

Pastor Troy Gramling gives us insight into what it truly means to be "Kingdom Tattooed" in a world that is so lost and hurting.

April 30, 2017 • Pastor Troy Gramling

In life, the question is not whether or not you’re going to be hurt by someone else, but rather whether or not you’re going to let that hurt tattoo you with forgivingness or unforgivingness. Unforgivingness is all-consuming, it steals from us our future potential and our ability to become exactly who God has created us to be. So how do we put out this flame of unforgivingness? Pastor Troy Gramling gives us some insight into living a life of forgiveness, to stop feeding our pain and hurt, and live the life that God intended us to live!

Tattooed By God

What is a tattoo? Tattoos are often chosen to make a statement, they have specific meaning to the person who chose to mark their skin with the tattoo. There are important things that we can learn about how God actually marks us, His children. God marks us with the potential to live full and satisfying lives, to reach our destiny. He has written His promises, in ink, in His Bible. Pastor Troy Gramling shares with us a special teaching about embracing the calling that God has put on our lives, and how we can be marked—or tattooed—for Christ!
