A Rising Church [pt.1]

Pastor Justin Simmons teaches a core theme of Scripture is resurrection or rising up. God is always calling His people to get back up, break out of dysfunction and live as overcomers over the world’s broken systems. Humility will give you access to the kingdom of God where we’ve become royalty with a mission to lead this world into an encounter with God. Over the next few weeks we’ll learn to live as prophets, kings and priests to the world – rising to the occasion just like Jesus showed us how.

What’s On Your Face?

Pastor Justin Simmons shares how God has given us incredible power through a small muscle we call the tongue. Our words shape the reality we live in on this side of eternity. We can build or we can destroy; we can heal or we can wound. Too much is at stake in our lives to agree with negativity and complaint. We must be a people who speak faith, hope and love.

Church: Bigger than a Building [pt.4]

Pastor Justin Simmons shares on the topic of a spiritual church that seeks to build up one another through the Spirit’s power. There is an expectation that God’s church would be a place of spiritual impact and not just another organization teaching morality and ethics. The church is the place of transformation and God chooses to use His people to help bring it about.
