The Discipline of Solitude

If asked to define your spiritual journey, what would be your response? I know my response would contain more of what I have accomplished than what truly has given me spiritual success. Accomplishments’ effects are temporary – what is lasting and permanent is a deep-rooted connection with God. The question then is, how do I establish and maintain that deep-rooted connection?

The Foundation 05-27-2017

A foundation is often thought of as something to be built upon. When we describe God as our foundation, we are only describing a beginning point for what God plans to do in our lives. We can’t build our foundation nor can we build the house upon the foundation. When we choose to be Christians, God is the designer, contractor, and decorator of our lives. ~Pastor Nate Elias

Counter the Culture 05-06-2017

Our society identifies success by bank accounts, material possessions, beautiful features, and job promotions. A church’s success is measured in membership, giving, and building size. Rarely do we even as Christians measure success as losing. The Son of God was successful because He died. We are invited into his success by losing ourselves. ~Pastor Nate Elias

Getting Out The Broom 04-29-2017

Cleaning often feels like a never-ending process. The moment something is clean, its very existence invites the agents of uncleanliness to appear. God describes a great cleaning of the best place in the Universe. Before we are allowed to visit, God depicts some major uncleanliness in what we often consider a perfect place.

Sabbath – It’s Worship 04-01-2017

The word WORSHIP conjures up many different emotions. The idea that there is a being called I AM who created, rescued, and redeemed humanity should bring all humanity to a situation in life for total worship. Instead, for many, worship is just too much to be asked.
