The accusations you hear don’t have to have the last word. God’s love for you isn’t fickle. In the courtroom of guilt and shame, Christians can stand confidently against their accuser, Satan.

When you’re uncertain of your standing with God, don’t speak for yourself—look to Jesus.

What are you building your life upon—in this life and the next? Some believe you can’t be sure of your eternal destiny. But this is the certainty you need to make all the trials of life bearable, even meaningful. In this message, you’ll build three pillars on the bedrock doctrine of eternal security.

Your regrets feel like an irreparable, muddy mess. Sin colors everything. It’ll take an intervention from God to make it right. In this message, you’ll identify the qualities of the righteousness in Christ that assure you of your standing with God.

For people bent on working for everything in their life, God’s grace is very difficult to accept.

In this message, you’ll apply the characteristics of God’s grace to your life. Whether you tend towards despair or pride, no one earns God’s favor based on their merit.

Most Christians know the hymn “Amazing Grace” – even non-believers know it. Yet so few of us truly understand why grace is so amazing. Let’s begin looking at the 5 characteristics of God’s saving grace in Ephesians 2. Though no one is worthy, God gives this gift freely to those who believe on His Son. God’s grace is more than sufficient to save not only a “good” person, but the most wicked and vilest of sinners. Now that’s amazing!

How do you avoid self-deception in your relationship with God? Many try to gain heaven through their own efforts. They think that if their good deeds outweigh their bad, they’ll make it.

You’re invited to come to the only One qualified to save you: Jesus.
