Nothing precedes purpose and everyone has an idea of what the church is all about. The starting point for every church should be the question, “What’s the point?" Until we know what our church is here for, we will have no foundation, no motivation, no direction, and no unity.

Part One: The Exposed Church
Nothing precedes purpose and everyone has an idea of what the church is all about. The starting point for every church should be the question, “What’s the point?" Until we know what our church is here for, we will have no foundation, no motivation, no direction, and no unity. In part one of the new series, Pastor Tim exposes the culture of church today and where it came from.
Part Two: The Called Church
Who is in charge of our hearts? All true, genuine Christian movements involve at their spiritual ground zero a living encounter with the One True God. In part two of the series, Pastor Tim explains that Jesus as Lord and Savior of every aspect of our lives is the foundation of our Christian experience.
Part Three: The Peculiar Church
Jesus taught that His kingdom was not of this world, yet He began and concluded His earthly ministry by teaching and preaching on this subject. In this revealing message, Pastor Tim explores what the message that Jesus and the apostles taught and how it applies to our ministry as a church today.
Part Four: The Transformed Church
Congregations have long measured success by "bodies, budget, and buildings." Maybe we’ve misunderstood the goal. In this forth message of the series, Pastor Tim clarifies what the biblical goal of the church is and how best to measure that success.
Part Five: The United Church
In this message of the series, Pastor Tim urges that the church is not a building where people go; not an organization of bylaws; not a group of individuals gathered together, but instead the body of Christ united and connected in purpose and life together.
Part Six: The Sent Church
In this final message in the series, we will discover that as the people of God surrender to the will of Holy Spirit and experience life transformation together, they will reveal in life and word, the Kingdom of heaven amidst a dark, sinful world and will be a powerful witness of Jesus Christ.
