    "Lukewarm people call radical what Jesus expects from all His followers." - Pastor Francis Chan

    The terms "radical" or to become "radicalized" usually carry a negative context these days. On the other hand, it will require a radical commitment to Christ and the authority of the His Word to win the "War of the Worldviews" raging in American culture today. Properly understood, all "real" Christianity is "radical" Christianity.

    "Of all the 50 or so Easter sermons I have delivered, I truly believe that none is more significant than this one; how the God of the Bible hides Himself in the very midst of revealing Himself. We need to know that God may never be more present in our lives than when He seems to be most absent. I invite you to be with us this weekend for this truly life-changing message, "Jesus Incognito"."

    Awake, you who sleep. Arise from the dead and Christ will give you light. Be careful how you walk, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time because the days are evil. Ephesians 5:15-16
     
    Evil days call for an awakened church, risen from the dead and "redeeming the time". But what does that mean? How do we do it? Please be with us this weekend for the 10th message in our "WAR OF THE WORLDVIEWS" series!

    The cosmic conflict raging today between God and man is as old as the Garden of Eden. It is really a battle over ethics; over who has the authority to define good and evil, right and wrong. And the battle begins right in our own backyard!

    "A lie can go halfway around the world before the truth gets its pants on." - Winston Churchill
     
    The Christian church is losing the culture wars in our country for lack of defending the truth. But, as Pontius Pilate asked Jesus at His trial, "What is truth? " Nothing is more needed today than a recovery of the truth and nothing is more under attack. We hope you can join us for the revelation of the alien worldview that must be defeated if God's kingdom is to be advanced.

    EKKLESIA: REDEFINING THE CHURCH
    Pastor Sean Morris from Melbourne, Australia delivered this powerful prophetic message last weekend: Ekklesia: Redefining the Church.
     
    The Lord Jesus did not send His church into the culture wars of time and history to lose. He sent the Church to advance the Kingdom of God into every area of life until the will of God is done on earth as it is in heaven. With the failure of the modern methodology for "doing church" the time to return to the biblical model has come!

    The mother of all sins is man trying to be God. The manifestation of the mother of all sins is man defining good and evil independent of God.

    Every Christian knows that ALL sins are bad. And that SOME sins are worse than others. But is there ONE sin that is worst of all? Is there a "mother" of all sins that gives birth to all the rest? The answer is "Yes".

    As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. - Proverbs 23:7
     
    Worldviews are composed of the ideas people hold that determine how they think and what they do. And those ideas have consequences!
     
    In this week's message, Pastor Ray will take an eye-opening look at what's really at stake in the 'war of the worldviews' and what happens in history when the Christian Church fails to win on the battlefield of ideas. It's a bigger deal than you may realize.

    In Matthew 24, Jesus said the primary indicator of His imminent return was "deception!"
     
    In our confused and chaotic world, masses are being misled. Do we know how to discern between the secular and spiritual? This is the clash of the worldviews in which we find ourselves

    Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
    2 Corinthians 5:17 (KJV)
    Our churches today are filled with people who are spiritually "stuck". All because no one ever told them that being saved is not an end, it is a new beginning; a new way of "beholding" or "seeing" all things new through the lens of a biblical worldview. We hope you can be with us this weekend as we continue with our life-changing study of "The War of the Worldviews."

    "Christians aren't at war with people--we are at war with the worldviews that hold people hostage."
     
    God's people cannot hope to win the culture wars without a biblical worldview. The problem is that less than 1 in 5 Christians in America have a biblical worldview! (Barna Research Group)
     
    We hope you can be with us as we launch out into the New Year with a comprehensive study of this most important, yet neglected subjects, and one that must be addressed.

    Pastor Ray will conclude our year-long, verse-by- verse study of the Sermon of the Mount this weekend with a message from the last 2 verses of Matthew 7, which record the effect Jesus' teaching haed upon His hearers...
     
    And so it was, when Jesus had ended these sayings, that the people were  
    astonished at His teaching, for He taught them 
    as one having authority, and not as the scribes. 
    Matthew 7:28-29  NKJV
     
    We hope you can be with us for this powerful reminder that Jesus the Teacher is, above all, Jesus the LORD.

    The Lord Jesus Christ concludes His magnificent Sermon the Mount with a most serious warning: Judgment Day will reveal whether we are the "wise man" who built his life on a foundation of rock or the "foolish man" who built his life on a foundation of sand. We need to know which man we are now, because on that Day it will be too late to rebuild!

    "The rampant disease of 'entitlement' is a contagious, insidious state of mind that has infected a whole generation of young people."
    - Richard Kirshenbaum, Advertising Executive
     
    The opposite of "thanksgiving" is not "un-thanksgiving", it is entitlement, a spiritual disease that is at the root of so many of the cultural crises confronting our nation today. We hope you can be with us this weekend to hear Pastor Ray's message, "The Opposite of Thanksgiving", an eye-opening look at this uniquely American disease and what God is calling His people to do about it!
