    Hearing God
    We need to listen to God's voice. 2 Timothy 3:16-17 says that "All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correctio and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work." We must hear the Word of God and apply it, putting it into action in our lives.

    What to Do
    The world is trying to strike fear to motivate us to do what they want. But we have the power of the almighty God in us, able to do exceedingly abundantly more than we can ask or even think (Ephesians 3:20). In order to experience God's blessings, we must be born again, and then listen to God's voice and do what he says.

    Draw Near With a Sincere Heart
    When we draw near to God and open our spiritual eyes, we will recognize that he is there. He has already drawn near to us. It is our position to draw near to him with a sincere heart.

    Be Near
    God wants us to draw near to him. Our motives will be more pure when we have drawn near to God and spent time in his presence. Our response to others and our friendships will also be in a better place when we have drawn near to God's presence. "Let us draw near to God with a sincere heart." Hebrews 10:22.

    The Diet to Maturity
    We need to understand the "diet" that leads us to the spiritual maturity that God has for us. There are four elements that contribute to this maturity: 1) The teaching of the Word of God  2) Fellowship with other believers  3) Communion  4) Prayer.  Partaking in these four important areas will encourage a healthy maturity in the life of the believer.

    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.

    A Perfect Result
    Melanie Bertoglio shares from James 1 about the importance of developing endurance in our lives. James tells us that God develops endurance in us when we go through the trials of life by planning ahead and choosing ahead of time what we will believe when they come. Whether the trials be ones that we "fall" in or ones that we bring on ourselves, God knows and cares and uses them to develop us that he might do a thorough work and achieve perfect results in us and for us.

    Proving Our Faith Part Two
    In the second pat of his "Proving our Faith" series, Chatman talks about being careful that as we seek to prove our faith, we don't fall into either the ditch of being a "works" only Christian or a "faith" only Christian.  we should instead marry our faith and our works in wisdom through loving God and loving people.

    Dealing With Doubt
    Ashley Ellison addresses the topic of dealing with doubt, taking a look at Thomas in John chapter 20. Doubt is inevitable, but how we deal with that doubt is incredibly important. We must choose to believe when doubts arise, making the choice to build up our faith and stand on the Word.

    Cut The Rope
    In Chatman's message Cut the Rope, he tells the story of Elisha Otis who invented the safety elevator. Only by displaying his faith in his design, was he able to win over people to trust its capabilities. In our own lives, Chatman encourages us to "cut the rope" that is holding us back.

    Decisions, Decisions
    Our blessings and problems in life often come from the decisions we make. The foundation for a right decision cannot be made without consulting God. Psalm 119:105 says, "Your word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path.". When we go to the word, it illuminates the path.
