This world is not our home. We are being tempted by the desires of the flesh, desires of the eyes, and the pride of life. In this message, we look at what 1 John 2 has to say about these desires and where they lead.
Today, we’re kicking off a series through one of my favorite letters in the Bible. 1 John was written to Christians who were confused about what it meant to be a Christian. It’s often been assumed that John was writing this letter to directly combat a first-century distortion of Christianity called Gnosticim. Though I can’t fully explain this belief system in 2 minutes, they took a dualistic approach to life. Everything on the world is evil, but there is a spirit world in which everything is good. So, our body is always going to be evil, because it’s natural. Our only hope for deliverance from this oppressive was through knowledge.
Church, this isn't just a great idea. It's the great Commission. It's our calling. Found people find people! I will do everything I can to equip you and empower you to do what God has called us to do, but ultimately you have to respond to God. If we will do this as a church and we'll step outside these walls and do what we've been talking about here this morning. Idaho and the entire United States and eventually the entire world will be changed because we took the Great Commission seriously.
We live in a world that will consume our time for us if we don't prioritize our own time. Without a top priority, everything becomes important and you end up reacting to whatever issues seem urgent that day. An inheritance is what we leave for others. A legacy is what we leave in them.
I've never met a president of the United States. I've been able to see almost all of the presidents live. But, it was from a great distance. So, I've never had the opportunity to have a conversation with the leader of the free world. But, if I did have that opportunity, what would I say?
I've never had the opportunity to have a conversation with the leader of the free world. But, if I did have that opportunity, what would I say? What would be important for the church to say?
We live in a loud world, we can get consumed by the business of things around us until we never sit still. We let things control our schedule instead of controlling our schedules. If You Don’t Manage The Noise, You Will Lose Out On Joy.
When I was a kid and didn't want to eat my food, my mother was use the starving children guilt-trip. I was like, go ahead send them my peas. I'll provide postage! But, for perspective sake, it's true. If you already have lunch plans, you're blessed. Some 795 million people in the world do not have enough food to lead a healthy active life. That's about one in nine people on earth. 783 million people do not have access to clean water and almost 2.5 billion do not have access to adequate sanitation. If you woke up this morning and were able to get out of bed and up and around this morning, you are blessed because over one million people won't survive the week. Yeah, it's fair to say perspective changes everything. So, here's my question: Do you ever wonder if you are seeing things with a proper perspective?

Frequently Asked Questions:

What can I expect?

Rather than being a building where people far from God are met with shame, guilt, and condemnation, Jesus leads us to be a family that extends His grace, mercy, and forgiveness to everyone. No matter what you’ve been through or what questions you might have, we want you to be a part of the family. You will be challenged to grow with relevant, applicable Biblical teaching, inspired to worship with Christ-centric congregational music and served by people who genuinely care about you.

We don't place a high premium on what you look like on the outside. Come as you are. We show up wearing everything from suits to shorts. The important thing is what God is doing on the inside. Our goal is to point people to Jesus. Because when we meet Jesus, He does the work of changing us to be like Him, challenging us to take next steps with Him.

Are all of your worship services the same?

Our morning services are identical in format and content. There may be certain ministries offered only at specific campuses, but the overall service will be very similar.

What is your worship style?

While understanding that everyone has preferences, we strive to sing the right songs for the specific service whether they be ancient or contemporary, hymns or choruses. Rather than enabling consumerism and limiting our musical expressions, we encourage the engaging of the heart and mind during our congregational worship regardless the style.
