You can come as you are.
Our goal is to create a place where people who don’t like church can come and find out about faith, God, the Bible and Jesus. Everyone is welcome here!
Whatever your story, your doubts, your problems – you are welcome here.
To connect people to Jesus and together grow with them in our devotion to Him.
Look around and then come to one of our locations and join us!
“Many of you have been a Christian for a while. And if you have been a Christian for some time you know what it’s like to come and sit in a group. Or sit in a place like this and your listening to somebody teach. And they teach something out of the Bible and you hear it taught. And you think to yourself uh no.
I mean it’s like ok God I get that’s in the Bible and I get that probably would work in an ancient culture and all that. But that really doesn’t fit in my life. And even if it did I don’t want to do that.
Maybe you’re here today and you’re not really even a follower of Jesus. And your just trying to figure this out. But you keep coming because God’s sort of nudging you. God’s sort of pulling you. And he is asking you to sort of do something. You hear what he wants you to do and you think to yourself I don’t want to do that.
Well last week we started this series with that title. I don’t wanna. And we learned this principle which is this. It’s the idea that often God will ask us to do something that in our lives often we will read something in the Bible. We will hear something taught about. And it’s something real clear. But we don’t really get the reason why. And when we hear it we are just like that doesn’t make any since to me. And the thought we have is all God really wants is to get me on the page. Five things he wants me to do and I’m doing four of them. He will be ok because all he really wants is my cooperation. And I’m more cooperative than not.
Last week we talked about what god is after in asking us to do these things is not our cooperation. God’s not primarily in asking you to do things trying to figure out if he can get you on the page. Can he get you to cooperate? Because of course if he wanted you to cooperate he has all the power. With a little zap of lightning. Probably after a while could get you to cooperate. The idea God is going after is not can I get them to do what I’m asking them to do. The idea is when I come to the place that God ask me to do something and I don’t totally get it but I say God. Because you are God when my faith intersects with God’s faithfulness on the other side of that I don’t come out of that and say I did the right thing I’m so happy.
We walk away from that saying when my faith in doing what God ask intersects on the other side when God came through and I know it was God. I walk away from that saying God knows me. God is with me.”
