If faith is heaven’s currency, how full is your “faith-account?” On earth, we use money to purchase or take possession of things -- but when you’re in business with heaven, it’s faith that’s required! 

The good news is...we’re going to find out today that faith is actually based on something -- and that something is God’s WORD! It may not be the “blind faith” factor that you’ve heard about. Your faith can be solid and certain. Join...

If you’ve been feeling down or weak spiritually, this message is for you. If you’ve got questions about your future, this message is for you. If you’ve got “pent up” prayers and worship on the inside of you, this message is for you! 

Let’s talk today about why we should want to speak in tongues! I hope to show you, from the Bible, why this is actually one of the best gifts the Lord has given to us -- and, I’ll help sort out some co...

You may have heard of “speaking in tongues” before -- and have loads of thoughts or opinions  It can also be described as speaking in a prayer language, heavenly language or spiritual language. Today, we’re going straight to God’s Word to see what the Bible actually says about speaking in tongues. 

>> We’re answering BASIC questions like: What is it? When does it happen? Why would you want to do it? Are you supposed to pray t...

Today, I want to tell you a story of when I was first filled with the Holy Spirit way back in college! It’s actually kind of a funny story…so I think you’ll get a kick out of it and hopefully be encouraged as we continue to study God’s Word and what it says about being “born of” and “filled with” the Holy Spirit (two distinct experiences). 

Plus, we’ll continue talking about why you would even want to be filled with the Holy Spirit...

If you’ve ever had questions about the Holy Spirit...you’re in the right place. Today we’re studying what the Bible tells us about who the Holy Spirit is and what it means to be FILLED with Him! 

If you are a believer in Jesus, the Holy Spirit has already been at work in your life helping you to be “born again” and to receive Jesus as your Lord. But -- there is more! There is a second experience of being “filled with” the Holy Spir...

I know, I know...most people *cringe* when they hear the word “obey.” It brings back memories of childhood or makes you think of a buzzkill, no fun situation. But, when you know God’s character and how much He LOVES us -- obeying Him is a no brainer! In fact, you might even “want to.” 

Today, we’re breaking it down...how to obey God. Thankfully, it’s not as complicated as you might think (you can thank Jesus for that!). And, even w...

Maybe you’ve heard people say before that “the primary way God speaks to us is through His Word.” It’s true! I hope you’ve experienced that for yourself, but if not -- you can! God wants to speak to you. God wants to help you with every aspect of your life. 

On today’s Basics Tuesday episode, I am sharing how God has used the Bible to speak to me on several different occasions in my life. I hope my stories will help you see and exp...

The Bible isn’t an old, outdated book written by a bunch of men way back in the day. The Bible is...God’s Word! It’s living and active. And -- it’s the primary way God speaks to us. 

Yes, it’s true. The best way to hear from God is through His Word! God doesn’t always speak to us in an audible voice or with flashing highway billboard signs. The primary He speaks to us on the job, as parents or when making a decision is through His ...

Here’s the big takeaway for today’s episode: get in the habit of only saying and PRAYING what you believe. Yes...I gave the punchline away before you tuned in...but it’s so important and very few people have mastered this “basic” of how to pray in faith! 

In order to pray in faith you have to know what you believe in your heart before you begin to speak or pray with your mouth. And, you should also endeavor to know what God’s WILL ...

Have you ever wondered: Can I really talk to God? Is He interested in my life or does He have more important things to do? How does prayer actually work? How do I know He can really hear me? 

You are in the right place, my friend. We’ve all had those questions -- and in today’s Basics Tuesday Bible study, we are digging into the “who, what, when, where, why and how” of prayer. Plus, we’ll examine the promises God has made to us as ...

Have you ever lost a child in a store? Or have you ever misplaced your purse or wallet that contained a bunch of cash and all of your important cards? You don’t just casually browse around “hoping” to find it -- NO! You search high and low, you run, you look everywhere and you don’t stop until you find what you’re looking for. 

>> Here’s a basic thought for today...What if we were to seek after God in this same way? With this...

Who is God? Who is Jesus? Who is the Holy Spirit -- and how do they all work together? Is there one God -- or three? Maybe you’ve heard the terms “trinity” or “godhead” before, but aren’t really sure what that means or how to interact with God in your own life…

This is what today’s Bible study is all about. After all, if we want to have a relationship with “God” -- then we should probably start by knowing who God is, right!?

Today,...

What do you do when God feels a million miles away? What do you do when the enemy discourages you about your salvation? Or when thoughts sneak in like, “You didn’t really pray that prayer.” or “You’ve messed up so many times.” or “You’re not a good Christian like so-and-so…” 

God doesn’t want you living in uncertainty or anxiety when it comes to your salvation or eternal destination. Quite the opposite really! In 1 John 5, the Bibl...

Many years ago, I received a letter from my cousin asking, “Why did Jesus have to die on the cross? Why the gory, bloody details?” Wow. It was such a good question -- and such an honest question. Maybe you’ve had that same question, too.

Well, I knew God had a reason for it -- after all He doesn’t make mistakes and He knows everything -- but I wanted to make sure I could explain it accurately to her...and understand it for myself!

Let’s be honest, nobody wants to talk about the “s” word, but Basics Tuesdays are all about studying the Bible together -- and the Bible clearly tells us, “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23, NKJV) 

> So, if we’ve all done it, what’s the big deal? 

> What actually is “sin?”

> And what in the world are we supposed to do about it?  

We’ll dig into the Bible to answer all of these questions ...

  • Let’s study the Bible together! For real. Let’s dig into God’s Word to learn about the most important “basic” of all -- JESUS! There are lots of opinions about who Jesus is, did He really ever claim to be God and is He really the “only way” to the Father and to eternity in Heaven?  Today, let’s examine God’s Word scripture by scripture to discover the truth for ourselves.
