Intergenerational Church–Personal 1-04-2020

“Throughout scripture one can see that each generation was shaped by previous generations. Unfortunately, in recent times, generations tend to hold back and sometimes hide the most important human qualities rather than imparting the gifts of life. The church can only function in an intergenerational model.” –Pastor Nate Elias, DMin

Song Two 12-21-2019

“When given back his voice Zechariah sings a two-part song of recognition to the saving power of God and the invitation of sharing the relevance of accepting God’s salvation. Like the world surrounding Israel, our world today has moved beyond God and salvation. We are called to be modern John the Baptists–opening the eyes of the world to the salvation that comes only through God.” –Pastor Nate Elias

Off Air 12-07-2019

“We are in a post Christian era where talking about Jesus often doesn’t resonate with secular family and friends. At Christ’s birth, living under Roman governance, left most, like today, disconnected from the impact of living in the presence of the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.”

God Encounters – Ananias 10-26-2019

“What if we could answer this question: ‘What if I don’t follow God’s call for my life?’ Ellen White shares this thought: ‘There are many who try to reform by correcting this or that bad habit, and they hope in this way to become Christians, but they are beginning in the wrong place. Our first work is with the heart.’ ” –Pastor Nate Elias

God Encounters–Saul 10-19-2019

“What if my spiritual journey is for God rather than with God? Too many times in the life of a Christian, efforts to be like Christ turn into trying to do something for Christ. The God-given invitation is to “abide in Christ.” This change in effort requires surrender of control and results in the greatest freedom and peace of the soul.” – Pastor Nate Elias

God Encounters–Cornelius 9-21-2019

“Cornelius’ regular practice of the spiritual discipline of prayer, meditation and serving others prepared him to respond to the Spirit of God calling him to action. By acting, not only was Cornelius transformed, but also the entire Christian church.” –Pastor Nate Elias
