What is God’s original intent for our identity? As Tim Keller said, “Christianity doesn’t just give you a new identity—it gives you a radical way of forming an identity. It gives you a unique, liberating, and infinitely better identity than the one the culture is imposing on you right now”.

With the rapidly changing moral and social landscape in America comes much uncertainty. There is, however, one sure thing—God does not change with culture or the latest headlines. As believers in Christ, we must be encouraged and equipped to act and think Biblically, boldly, and lovingly in a “whatever” goes world.



WHO DOES YOUR THINKING FOR YOU?  February 5 & 6, 2016

Featured Cameron McAllister, Alycia Wood & Abdu Murray

From a very tender age we are fed cultural ideals, truths, and yes, even white lies that lead to the development of a moral belief system that ultimately ends up as a worldview. A worldview is how we see the world and we can build our worldview on just about anything. Some of these Ideals have no justifiable basis and yet we embrace them anyway. Beliefs that we grew up with or now today, we google the top 10 books someone recommends to read, or as one of our guests suggests when searching online recommendations, “[we] have a tendency to bypass the risks involved in forming our own thoughts in favor of the thoughts and opinions of others..” So who does your thinking for you?



MARRIAGE & HUMAN SEXUALITY  February 6 & 7, 2015

Featured Rosaria Butterfield, Ryan T. Anderson & Abdu Murray

We addressed the moral transformation in our culture on issues surrounding marriage, same-sex marriage, sexuality, and sexual identity.

While our social institutions and human sexuality are being redefined before our very eyes, the Bible presents marriage as an unchanging picture of the gospel through the union of one man and one woman. The gospel announces that the story of Jesus is greater than the sum total of our sexual desires. And as Christians, we need to be well-equipped to apply the gospel on these issues with conviction and grace in our communities, our families and our churches.
