    The Half Full Life
    Having a thankful attitude makes us better people. But how can we maintain a thankful attitude amid a thankless culture? Pastor Chris gives us three points from 1 Thessalonians 5:12 - 22 to actualize an attitude of thankfulness in our lives.

    The Believer’s Secret to a Favored Life
    As Pastor Chris lays out for us in this message, Psalm 1 shows that to live the blessed, favored life that God wants for us, we have choices to make in how we live. And there is a direct connection in the believer's life to the favor and success that they enjoy to the that on which they meditate.

    Healed but Not Healed
    In this message, Pastor Chris looks at Luke 5:17 - 26. In this passage, we see the Lord's power and ability to heal and we see faith to receive. But, as Pastor Chris emphasizes, we also see the courage it takes to receive the healing. Some people will never receive transformation in their life because they do not have the courage to do so. Before Pastor Chris's message, we hear from Tammy Tidd of House of Grace as she gives an update on the ministry and the life transformations that are happening there.

    The Priority of Purity – Part 2
    In this continuation of "The Priority of Purity" message, Pastor Chris focuses on the character of Esau mentioned in the Hebrews 12:14 - 17 passage. As he points out, Esau, who trivialized spiritual things, represents people living after the flesh. Whereas his brother, Jacob, though not a pure representation, represents those living after the spirit. Esau was willing to trade the blessing for his fleshly satiation. We need to take heed and not trivialize or throw away the blessings and opportunities that God gives to us.

    Lining Up Spiritually
    As Pastor Richard Ware shows us from Romans 7:15 - 25, there is a battle going on in all of us between our flesh and our spirit. The one we feed is the one that dominates. As the Church, our aim must not be at the flesh of the unbeliever, but at their soul. We must learn to minister to the soul and not the flesh. In this Installation Service of Pastor Chris Cain, we also hear an exhortation from Wade Urban and are ministered to in song by Stacey Ware.

    The Toxicity of Self-Pity
    Our experiences in life are about 10% of what happens to us and 90% of how we react to them. And the most toxic of all reactions is self-pity because it skews our perception so that we do not even realize we are mistaken as to the actual facts. Referencing Numbers 11:1 - 6, Pastor Chris gives us four thoughts to avoid complaining and to stop self-pity before it begins.

    How to Keep Victory In Your Life
    A successful Christian life is not just believing the right stuff, but living the right stuff. It is getting your head, heart, and hands working together. And, as Pastor Chris exhorts from Ephesians 5:1 - 20 and Matthew 25:1 - 10,  we need regular spiritual oil changes and maintenance. Maintaining victory in our life is going to be about our "oil" level.

    The Finished Work of Jesus
    In this powerful message, Wade and Connie Urban show us what we have as a result of the finished work of Jesus Christ. Connie exhorts us with Psalm 103:2, 3 to not forget His benefits. And Wade reminds us that Jesus became sin and the curse for us so that we are redeemed. He also gives five characteristics of a pioneer anointing.

    Stoke the Fire
    Matthew 28:19 - 20 gives us our marching orders. As Pablo Figueroa gives his testimony, he reminds us that to be effective with those orders, we need to keep the fire of God stoked in our lives so that we do not lose our boldness in proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
