Faith in a Faithful God

When the Bible talks about faith, it often mentions Abraham as the prototype of faith. Father Abe was a great man of faith. But he would not have been a great man of faith had he not been following a faithful God. Join us summer 2014 for a series in the life of Abraham, and a reminder that even when our faith struggles, our God is faithful.

A Test of Radical Proportions | Genesis 22

In our series' final message we see that Abraham's defining moment teaches us something about what it means to have radical faith in our faithful God.

Impossible Outcomes | Genesis 18
August 24, 2014 | Pastor Mike

Why is it that we are so quick to label something "impossible"? Just because something is hard for us, doesn't mean it's hard for our creator. We ask the same question the God asked Abraham, "Is anything too hard for the Lord?"

The Sign of a Covenant | Genesis 17
August 17, 2014 | Pastor Mike

God made a covenant with Abraham, and then made a sign for all people within the covenant. In the same way, God's New Covenant has a sign for all believers. Baptism Service 2014. 

The Abraham Principle | Genesis 15
August 10, 2014 | Pastor Mike

Genesis 15 is incredibly important to understanding the Gospel, because it teaches us the "Abraham Principle" of God's grace: God has the authority to look at our faith and count it as righteousness. And that's exactly what he does through Jesus Christ!

To the Victor... | Genesis 14
July 20, 2014 | Pastor Mike

The answer to this question says a lot: When you have a victory—a victory at work, at school, in your marriage... or anywhere else—who do you attribute the victory to? Do you praise the skills, or the One who gave you the skills?

Doubting a Faithful God | Genesis 12:10-20
June 29, 2014 | Pastor Mike

Sometimes God's promises can feel like false advertising. But are they? God's promises to Abram began to feel that way, and we can learn an important lesson from his life.

The Faith of Our Father | Genesis 12:1-9
June 22, 2014 | Pastor Mike

In Genesis 12 we meet the man Abram, and a momentous call from God. Abraham's obedience to God's call tells us something about our faith.
