Better Episode 3 – by Paul Trimble

Since God seems to desire and expect praise from everyone throughout the Bible, does that make Him the ultimate narcissist? He has been accused of such plenty of times. And if His love for us is based on His own character and glory rather than something special about us, does that mean it is less than pure, sincere, and genuine? These are questions that both believers and non-believers wrestle with. Join us for Part 3 of this series on Better to hear more on these questions./p>

Better Episode 2 – by Paul Trimble

The author of the letter to the Hebrews writes that Jesus is the one through whom the universe is made.

Better – by Paul Trimble

Everyone wants something better in their life. But how do you identify what is better? And when you identify it, how do you maintain a laser-like focus versus losing your way? Two thousand years ago, the writer of the letter to the Hebrews extolled the One who is better in every way to any other competing priority or pursuit in our lives, and encouraged his listeners with why and how they could stay steadfast in their commitment to Him. Listen in to the introduction to this series. – October 01, 2017

Mark 16 – by James Robbins

Wouldn’t life be easier if we knew how our lives would turn out? Worrying about the future is something that comes all too naturally for us as people. When Mark wrote the account of Jesus that bears his name, it appears he wrote a cliffhanger ending. How things would turn out wasn’t clear or obvious, and neither is it in our lives. The outcome is largely up to us, and depends on how we answer the question about who Jesus is; listen in as Jamie Robbins concludes this series of the book of Mark. – September 24, 2017

Mark 14 – by Paul Trimble

How do you handle stress, adversity, and conflict? Cower in a corner? Put up your dukes? Run for safety? Everybody has their own way of handling difficult times. In Mark 14, Jesus shows a different way. Those around him all faltered in one way or another, much as we do. Yet Jesus, under the most intense pressure imaginable, perfectly handled the perfect storm. In this message, we look at how and why He did so, what we can learn from Him, and marvel at his choices that made it possible for us to follow in his footsteps in our times of difficulty. – September 03, 2017

Mark 13 – Mini-Apocalypse by Paul Trimble

What could be more solid and reassuring than a stone building whose beauty was unsurpassed and whose significance united an entire people under God? So when Jesus predicted the destruction of the temple in Jerusalem in Mark 13, his listeners were forced to re-evaluate where their trust and confidence was placed. For those of us listening today, where does true security come from? Hint: it’s not the places where we typically seek first. Listen in with Paul Trimble to hear more. – August 27, 2017

The Vineyard by Travis Williams

After Jesus flipped tables and drove out profiteers from the temple courts with a whip, religious authorities were incensed.

So You Had a Bad by Randy Tinnin

A Little Bit of Crazy Part 2 – Paul Trimble

As we continue in the series from the book of Mark, we encounter another of Jesus’ teachings filled with surprise and paradox. “For to the one who has, it will be given, and from the one who does not have, even what he has will be taken away.” While it sounds like the old maxim that the rich get richer and the poor get poorer, this saying actually encapsulates both a great mystery and a deep spiritual principle that we would all do well to understand and embody. – June 25, 2017

Missing The Point – James Robbins

Missing the Point: When Jesus healed and forgave people in his hometown, the people’s reaction was mixed. When he broke the religious rules, some were offended and questioned him.

Knowing this can help us be the master of our minds and bodies and to love God with all of our mind and strength.
