Have you ever possessed information that had the potential to benefit you or someone else, but you didn’t act on it? Knowledge is powerful, but only when we act on it. In this message, Action Matters, James, the brother of Jesus, makes this exact point about the gospel. The good news of Jesus has the power to save and restore us, but only if we act on it in faith. Join us as we continue exploring the book of James in this series, Faith Works.

Did you know that the average person speaks between 10 and 15 thousand words daily? That’s a lot of words. If that was surprising, you might be just as surprised to know that each of those words is an opportunity. An opportunity to grow your faith and change your perspective about the circumstances you encounter daily. The words we use have the power to change our worlds for the worse or for, the better. If you want to change your status quo this year, it begins with your words. Join us for this message, Words Matter, as we uncover how your words shape your faith and world.

Resisting the World
January 29, 2023 James Barringer • James 4:1–12
What does it mean to be in the world but not of the world? As followers of Christ, we are called to walk a fine line. A line of faith that teeters between two worlds, one seen and the other unseen. James calls us to avoid friendship with the seen world, so we can experience the far greater pleasures of the unseen world. This is another mark of genuine faith. If you’re wondering how to navigate the fine line between the pleasures of this world and the hope of what’s to come, join us for this last message in our Faith Works series, Resisting the World.
