You're Going To Catch On Fire

March 19, 2019 | By: Shawn White |

The imagery that we get in the scriptures of God is this all consuming fire but its important that we understand that the nature of God is love. God loves you just the way you are but He loves you too much to leave you the way that you are. God is doing a good work in each of our lives and that good work is always about perfecting His love in us, which isn’t always a pleasant process. As we are practicing God’s presence, we are welcoming His refining process in our lives that gives purpose to the problems that we face.


Presence or Perfection

March 14, 2019 | By: Shawn White |

Sometimes our ability to know God's presence in our lives is limited by our struggle for perfection. In Matthew 5:48 Jesus said, that we are to be perfect as our heavenly Father is perfect. But something we often fail to see is that this verse is in the context of not just loving your neighbor but loving your enemy. God's idea of perfection always exist around the way we love. We often see perfection according to the standards that humanity sets. Perfection is a journey and we all have a long way to go. So relax! Stay real. Be honest. Be vulnerable. God gives grace to the humble. Its the proud He knows from afar.


The Four Dimensions of God (Part 4)

The indwelling of God within us which the Apostle Paul wrote about calling it “the mystery of the Gospel… Christ in us the Hope of Glory.


For Those Who Never Heard

February 28, 2019 | By: Phil Wedderburn-Maxwell |

The Bible teaches that the Gospel continues to be preached in death. (1 Peter 4:6, Romans 14:9, & more!). God is absolutely good and good all the time. God is love! The Judge we have is a good & loving Father and the Son is our advocate. We preach the Gospel in life so that people can be reconciled with God and have abundant life - a life that is truly life with a freedom to be truly free. We preach the Gospel so that people will know they are loved and valued by God.


Set An Atmosphere

February 17, 2019 | By: Shawn White | Scripture: Luke 7:36-50

In Luke chapter 7, God is present but the Pharisee who invited Him over is completely oblivious to the presence of God because of his understanding of Jesus. So often we miss the presence of God because of our lack of understanding around who He is. The atmosphere in the room must have been dreadful, so this woman of the city walks in dumps an alabaster flask of ointment all over Jesus and completely changes the atmosphere of the room. She was the only one who recognize the presence of God and through her heart of extravagant worship she set the example of how we are called to change the atmosphere in this world.


Love’s Delivery Service

February 10, 2019 | By: Shawn White |

Once we get an understanding of God’s love for us we are able to move into the second phase of Practicing God’s Presence. John 15 and Romans 12 give us some helpful keys in stepping into this next phase. You can’t truly practice God’s love without sharing it with someone else.


Stay Here

February 3, 2019 | By: Shawn White |

It's wonderful to create a pattern in your life where you carve out time during the day to meet with God. Daniel had a pattern of meeting with God three times a day. Jesus had a pattern of meeting with God early in the morning. But in John 15, Jesus is offering His disciples something more than just coming and going, coming and going. Over and over again He invites them and us to abide, which basically means to stay. Where we need God the most is in our every day activities and responsibilities. God doesn’t just exist at church or at home. His is omnipresent. He is always with you and we have been invited to not just come and go when it comes to His presence. We have been invited to stay. In this message Pastor Shawn lays out the foundation for what it means to practice God’s Presence.


The Immanence and Omnipresence of God

January 27, 2019 | By: Phil Wedderburn-Maxwell |

In Christianity we can talk a lot about the historical Jesus and the transcendent God but we can’t really relate to either. Jesus told His disciples that it would be better if He goes away because in doing so He would send the Holy Spirit who would be with us forever. The presence and power of God is with us through the Holy Spirit, always, but we don’t often live in a way that realizes the gift that we have been given. In this message Pastor Phil talks about the visitation, activation and habitation of the Holy Spirit.


The Transcendent God

January 20, 2019 | By: Phil Wedderburn-Maxwell |

There are four dimensions of God that we know of and can explore. In this message Pastor Phil shares about the Transcendent God who is high and lifted up. In this message Pastor Phil also answers a tough question in Christianity today, “What happens to people who have never heard the gospel?” and dives deep to show us what the scriptures states. Enjoy!


Stay Determined

January 13, 2019 | By: Shawn White |

I am so thankful we can have hope, even if what we are facing is tough, if nothing seems to be changing, hold on!! God just isn’t done yet! The best is yet to come. Strength is built in the valley. This life is the perfect incubator for developing faith, hope and love. Learning the true meaning of love requires enemies. Learning to operate in faith requires a fight. And learning to hope requires hopeless situations. Maybe, like Elijah, all you can see is a cloud the size of a fist. Maybe like the Israelites you have been obediently walking around the walls of Jericho and on day six there are still no cracks in the walls. Don’t lose hope, keep believing!! The rain is coming, the walls are coming down. If you can’t tell, we are super pumped for what God has in store for 2019!
