Water Into Wine

by Pastor Peter
Jesus' first recorded miracle—changing water into wine—isn't a simple party trick. Instead, by changing the contents of the pots used in religious rituals to a beverage symbolizing celebration, he subtly demonstrates the hope that he comes to embody that all people can be invited to a heavenly wedding between God and humanity.

God of Abundance

Faith’s Victory

Faith isn't an idea in our head, but instead, trust in what God has done. If we embrace this truth then it will have an affect on our life.

Welcoming the Outsider

by Pastor Peter
Phillip has no idea that his obedience to a seemingly absurd command by God will lead him to share the good news with an outsider that God has welcomed in and that this outsider--a Eunuch from Ethiopia--would become the apostle to take the message to a whole new continent.

Two Kinds of Wisdom

by Pastor Peter
Human wisdom is judged right by how it looks. God's wisdom, displayed in Jesus' crucifixion is judged right by what it accomplishes. Believers should pursue the kind of wisdom demonstrated by Jesus as it builds a life-giving community if we are faithful to it.

King In My Heart

by Pastor Peter
When Jesus enters Jerusalem claiming to be king, different people have different reactions to his claim. Some are hostile. Some support him conditionally. Some welcome him because he is the rightful king. When Jesus comes to our hearts with that same claim to be king, which response does that claim bring out of us?
