As Christians living in America the main reason we don’t see breakthrough in our prayers is because we don’t need it. We don’t ask for it, we are just too absorbed with our own lives most of the time. But when hardship happens however, then we pray. Let's be sure we check our motives.

Intercessory prayer is prayer on behalf of others that comes from a heart gripped by the gospel.

This week Pastor Josh shares with us what scripture tells us, regarding how to pray.
Acts 5:1-22; 16:25-34; Ps 8:1-9; Ps 7:17; Ps 109; Rom 8:26
Pastor Jonathan encourages us to stop lying to the Holy Spirit and pray authentic, genuine prayers to our Father.
This week, Pastor Josh opened up our sermon series by reminding us that part of the reason we pray is for personal renewal and to awaken our relationship with the Lord.
This week, Pastor Jonathan builds upon last weeks’ message by encouraging us to leave the comfort of our lives of ease and follow Jesus in obedience. To follow Jesus is much costlier than just going to church on Sundays and maybe participating in a few activities on occasion. It’s a life of commitment, sacrifice, and suffering.
Please note that due to technical difficulties, there will be no audio or video available for this message.
As a healthy church, we are encouraged to obey and submit to our leaders as the authority God has ordained and put in place.
This week's message encourages believers to become part of a healthy community of leaders and learners who are daily strengthened by God’s grace and live out of that grace towards others.
1 Cor. 16:1-3; 2 Cor. 8:1-4; 2 Cor. 9:6-11
In this week's message believers are reminded that as our love for Christ and maturity in the gospel grows, we should be living increasingly more generous and abundantly joyful lives in the gospel, even in the midst of difficulties.
This week, Pastor Jonathan's message encouraged us as believers to use what God has entrusted to us for His glory.
This week Pastor Josh encourages to set aside aside our foolish idols and imitate Christ in our daily lives.

This weeks message encourages us to turn away from the things of the world that have no eternal value and see the finished work of Jesus as our treasure and our rest.
This week's message helps us consider how can we encourage and strengthen our brothers and sisters in Christ as they run their race.
As one Church, we endeavor to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
As a believer, each of us has been given the ministry of reconciliation by our King. We need to understand that this ministry is a product of the harvest from the Mission. Our ministry comes to us in that way. We don’t choose a ministry and then go do missions, God will give us a ministry as a result of the Mission being accomplished.
As we focus on making disciples in the circles of influence God has provided for us, we see ministry opportunities open up as a result which continue to advance the Mission of God’s Kingdom.
When life leaves us weary, we can be encouraged by knowing that Christ is with us, God is training us, and the end result will ALWAYS be for good.
Pastor Jonathan's message reminds us, that as believers Jesus is our finish line! That means that we can be encouraged to persevere to the end!
Are you living a life of faith?
Without faith it is impossible to please God. That means there is only way to please God and that is a life lived by faith in Him. It is by faith we believe that He exists (the He as He is revealed in the Bible) and that He rewards those who seek Him. This implies that we have tasted and seen God in such a way that we find Him and His reward to be worth seeking.
Pastor Josh shows us through the example of Old Testament saints, what a life of faith looks like.
Pastor Josh begins to take us through the "Hall of Faith" with an in-depth look at men and woman who lived lives of faith. This week we are looking at what real faith looks like. Unfortunately the audio did not record this week. We have attached Josh's sermon notes as well as several other sermon helps for further study.
