    Epic Failure
    In his message "Epic Failure", Tim Brooks brings encouragement for those who remain troubled over a past failure. Peter denied Jesus three times in Mathew chapter 26, but in John chapter 21 Jesus gives Peter the opportunity to confess that he loved him three times, reconditioning his thinking. Jesus brought restoration to Peter by reconditioning his response. It is important to recondition our thinking after an "epic" failure.

    The Deception of Immaturity Part Three
    Ashley Ellison teaches on the importance of spiritual maturity in the life of the believer.  As noted in 2 Timothy 4:1-2, reproof, rebuke, exhortation, long suffering and sound doctrine all play an important roll in developing maturity. The foundation of sound doctrine is the Word of God. It is important to continually be in a place of teaching and being taught the truth of God's Word.

    Heart Over Sacrifice
    In his message "Heart Over Sacrifice", Chatman  illustrates from the story of Jonah, the importance of having a right heart in our service for God. Jonah was serving God, but had a  hard heart, a symptom of spiritual immaturity. God wants our heart before anything else. God has mercy on us even in our immaturity, but  left unchecked, spiritual immaturity will keep us removed from his greatest blessings.

    Dull of Hearing- Part Two of The Deception of Immaturity
    Spiritual immaturity over a prolonged amount of time will give way to accepting things that will bring corruption. Hebrews 5:11-14 warns against the dangers of becoming "dull of hearing" and not progressing from consuming spiritual "milk" to consuming "solid food". To be fully prepared to face the evil in the world today we must grow in our relationship with Christ and mature, consuming the "meat" of the Word of God, so that we can be equipped to discern between good and evil.

    The Deception of Immaturity
    In his message "The Deception of Immaturity", Pastor Ashley lays out the importance of moving from a place of spiritual immaturity to a place of spiritual maturity. The biggest sign of maturity is coming to a place where you can recognize immaturity in your own life. It is important to identify those areas and put them away, and grow in knowledge and wisdom.

    Commitment and Surrender
    In his message "Commitment and Surrender", Pastor Ashley explains the importance of being fully surrendered to God. We live in a culture where people struggle with keeping commitments. Without surrendering to God's call on our life, we cannot fully commit. Without surrender we can't fulfill God's call on our life.  Life is daily about surrendering our will to the Lordship of Jesus. Surrender to God allows our commitments to line up with him.

    Ordinary People
    We are in a culture that is pushing everyone to believe that if there isn't something extraordinary about themselves that they aren't special. Many Christians spend so much time trying to identify a grand call for their lives that they miss the simple assignments that God has set before them. Melanie Bergoglio encourages us to "show up, accept the assignment, and do it to the best of our ability." In doing so, we often discover the call of God in our lives.

    Essential With Potential
    Guillermo Rodriguez, Pastor of Christian Ministries Church in Houston, shared a message reminding us that our thinking will influence our behavior. Wrong thinking can influence wrong behavior and bring destruction. We need our minds to be renewed and transformed, and it starts with an encounter with Jesus!

    Following Our Faith
    Through the story of Timothy's calling, Chatman explains how essential "Following Our Faith" really is.  It's only by allowing our faith to lead us, that we will ever make it beyond the obstacles to our faith.
