image Finish Strong
As Paul lived out his final days in a Roman prison, in the dungeon of a cell, hands and feet shackled, awaiting execution, he left some last minute instructions for a close friend, a young pastor named Timothy. In this letter, Paul demonstrates what it means to go the distance in life, how to run the race until the very last step.
 
Finish Strong teaches you how to follow Paul's example of faithful perseverance, so that we, too, can ultimately say, "I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith."

image Temptations Americans Face
As a Mom, Dad or Single Parent, you must choose to tell your children who they are (identity) and who they can become (destiny). We must remind them every day that they belong to God, and that He wants to use them in a great way.

image This Changes Everything
In the Word of God we encounter a few truths to which we can only respond: This Changes Everything.
 
One example is the resurrection of Jesus Christ. His victory over death and grave changes everything we once believed about the meaning of life.
 
Another example is the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. His presence in our lives changes everything about what it means to have a personal relationship with God.
 
This series looks at some of the most significant "This-Changes-Everything" moments in Scripture - helping us to consider how these moments should affect our lives going forward.
 
This 4 part series focuses on cultivating a worship centered way of life, in which a moment of surrender leads to a lifetime of service.

image Every Day a Celebration
Worship. It is not a style of music. It is not a religious ritual. And it is not a feeling we seek. It is, rather, a lifestyle in which we devote ourselves to giving God that which is his due, day-in and day-out, regardless of how our emotions may sway at any particular time.

image How to Make a Difference
Most people want to live a life of significance, but they aren't really sure what that means. It involves more than fame and fortune; it involves making a difference. How do you go about doing that?
 
In spite of tremendous opposition, the early church made an impact through a commitment to social action, holiness, discipleship, and evangelism. This series teaches us how to follow the example of those first believers. In doing so, we'll make a difference in our world, too.

image SEEK: a journey to the heart of God
Centuries ago the philosopher Pascal talked about what has been called the God-shaped void in our lives; a void that we may try to fill with things, with pleasure, with power, or with success. But this infinite abyss, as he described it, can be filled only with God Himself. It is in God that the heart finds its home.
 
This 3-part series focuses on the process of seeking God in such a way that our lives are filled to over-flowing with the fullness that only He can give.

image Three Little Words
When you read the New Testament, especially the letters of Paul, three words keep coming into the conversation: Faith, Hope, and Love. These three, Paul said, are written in forever. When all else has faded away, these three qualities will remain.
 
For this reason, these three qualities are fundamental to living an effective and fulfilling Christian life. To grow in our walk with Christ, we need to grow in faith, hope and love.
 
This series takes a closer look at the meaning of these three little words, as we consider how to put each quality to work in our daily lives.

image Radical Christianity
Christianity is not for wimps! To be a disciple of Christ requires commitment and courage, because being a Christian means life in the fast lane. It requires re-evaluating preconceived ideas about religion, success, loyalty, and life in general. It requires abandoning thoughts and habits holding us back, and adopting new values that will empower us to ignite our world.
 
This series challenges us to accept the call for believers to become unabashedly radical-adopting a radical lifestyle, living radically honesty, embracing his radical mercy, and pursuing radical spirituality.

image Shhhhh: Discovering the Power of a Quiet Life
No one can argue that today life moves faster -- and louder -- than ever before. It's easy to get caught up in the hectic pace, and it's tempting to lose oneself in the noise.
 
But there's a solution. The Bible shows a simpler way to approach life, counter-intuitive in design, but revolutionary in results. Two thousand years ago Paul challenged followers of Christ to aim for a quiet life: working with your hands, showing kindness to one another kindness, approaching God in simple humility.
 
This series explores the idea of what living a quiet life really means.

image The Four Sides of Forgiveness
Forgiveness is the foundation upon which the Christian life is built -- the forgiveness we need and the forgiveness we extend. The Bible teaches that we are forgiven as we forgive, and that we are to forgive as we have been forgiven. This series examines this powerful doctrine from four directions: how God has forgiven us, how we need to seek forgiveness from others, how we need to extend forgiveness to others, and how we need to learn to forgive ourselves.

image Storm Ready: Make your life weather resistant
The storms of life are a fact of life. The rain falls on us all -- the good and the bad, the just and the unjust.
 
In the gospel of Matthew, Jesus taught a short parable about two men who both faced storms. One man's house stood strong, the other came crashing to the ground.
 
What was the difference? The wise man, the one who put into practice the teachings of Jesus, was able to withstand the wind and rain. Wisdom, grounded in obedience, made him Storm Ready.
 
This series focuses on three attitudes and habits that will help us prepare for the storms that will inevitably come our way.

image Make Your Mark: Lessons on Living a Legacy
Life is about more than just working towards. It's about more than just the accumulation of things. Every follower of Jesus Christ desires to make a difference in the world, to leave a legacy that outlives us. This is also true of the church. We've been given a mission: Go and change the world with the gospel of Jesus Christ.

This series shows us how we, together and individually, can make a mark that makes a difference. These messages focus on 8 key values that were evident in the ministry of the early church and must be evident in our lives today.

image Glory Days
Many people believe, and live life today, as if their best days are behind them. They idealize the past, pretending it was better than it was, using it an excuse to avoid the present. You see this happening in churches, businesses, and even marriages: going through the motions today, convinced that things will never again be as good as they once were. It also happens to believers in their walk with Christ. They look back on a time when their spiritual life was vibrant and real ... and today it's just a fading memory.
 
It wasn't meant to be this way. The Bible teaches that our best days are never behind us. Our best days, indeed, are here and now. This series focuses on four principles outlined in the 10th chapter of Hebrews that teach us how make these days -- right here, right now -- the "good old days."

Effective leadership is a matter of forgetting or escaping those things that hold us down, and remembering that God has called us, as leaders, to launch forward in His name.

image God's Guide to the Good Life (Exodus 20:1-17)

God did not give the Ten Commandments to limit our freedom, but to enhance it. When we live by the Ten Commandments, we become truly free to experience the good life God has in store for each of us.

image Mission Possible - How GraceLife Church Can Change The World!
