Everyone wants peace whether it is just enough to sleep at night or for wars to end.

Gratitude: A Heart Realignment
Thanksgiving & Pre-Advent Message • November 24, 2019 • Mike Stubbs
A large part of discipleship 101 is gratitude – learning to take our eyes of the deficits and to focus on the benefits – what we already have. It ignites the power of God in our lives in a dynamic way closing the door to the curse and opening another to the abundant life. Gratitude is a mind-transforming faith-focus that revolutionizes our lives and is only a decision away.

The Kingdom of God has been a priority from before it was prophesied in the writings of Moses. It was a priority to the patriarchs of the faith, to our Messiah Jesus Christ, to the New Testament writers and historical figures in church history. It should be a priority to us and carries great reward with it.

There is a kingdom that is greater than all the empires of history. Jesus followers are part of that kingdom and the power and influence that go with it.

Faith Unencumbered by Edicts, Ethnicity or Epidemics
Hebrews 11 Faith Series #6 • October 13, 2019 • Mike Stubbs

Seeing Miracles in Advance
Hebrews 11 Faith Series #5 • October 6, 2019 • Mike Stubbs
Words are powerful. They articulate what we believe to be true. It’s often based on our 5 senses and it is often limited to the natural. Faith sees things that are not as though they already were. When we view life through the eyes of faith, we see things fulfilled before they even happen. When this kind of faith is unleashed, wonderful things happen.

People get stuck and find themselves in dark places wondering if God even cares. But, as Ben-Hadad found out, God is the God of the valleys as well as the mountain tops. Lifting your eyes to the promises of God, like Abraham did, will take us from a our present circumstance to the fulfillment of God's promises.

A reputation takes time to build and is more than mere words – it is corresponding action. Whatever reputation we build will outlive us. A reputation for being a man or woman of faith is built upon faith-filled action and is both sought after and highly rewarded by God.
Ancestral Faith in a Modern World
Hebrews 11 Faith Series #1 • September 8, 2019 • Mike Stubbs

Good Things Come to Those Who Wait
August 25, 2019 • Mike Stubbs
Our culture suffers from impatience and wants instant gratification. Even believers want to be blessed now on their schedule … not God’s. If we want to be blessed, we need to hold on to the promise and let go of the timeline. God knows what time it is.
What to Do If Your Influencers Have Issues
August 11, 2019 • Mike Stubbs
We are all influenced by someone. Fortunately, we can choose who our influencers are. But what do you do if you find out the influencers you have chosen have issues? This is important to talk about because we are required to have influencers in our lives, and they are all imperfect in one way or another. The scriptures give us practical insights to guide us to becoming better at allowing the right imperfect selective influences to help us mature as believers. That grumpy granny may be key to your spiritual growth.
Breaking the Poverty Spirit
August 4, 2019 • Mike Stubbs
Poverty and lack are from the devil while provision and abundance are from God. (John 10:10) This is deeply established in the Bible and to believe otherwise is unscriptural. That is why it is important to break poverty mindsets that have kept believers in bondage for too long through generational curses, unredeemed attitudes and thought processes and even false teaching from the pulpit based on false humility. We declare war against poverty strongholds in our lives, our families, our church and our community!
His Purpose: Our First Love
July 28, 2019 • Rev. Tolbert Livingston
Satan is always in attack mode shooting fiery darts at the body of believers called the church. Our strength is found in unity with one another and our connection to the purposes and plans of Christ. To overcome Satan's attacks, we must consider some adjustments in our attitudes to set us up for overwhelming triumph.
Wake Up and Start Dreaming Again!
July 21, 2019 • Mike Stubbs
Jesus Christ has a plan for our lives that is rich and fulfilling. It may not be exactly what we envisioned and we may have foretastes of it while largely trusting God for the rest. It is possible to have healthy dreams and goals while remaining pliable in the Master’s hands.
