Identity

"Jesus Is For You" - Tim Mannin

Jesus. He changed everything about everything (Week 16) Jesus is for you and has never stopped believing in you, even if you've stopped believing in yourself. This morning's message focuses on Jesus encountering Peter in the midst of his failure and pursuing him. He heals our shame, changes our focus, and gives us a new direction. (John 21:15-22, 22:55-62)

"Living Intentionally" - Tim Mannin

(Ephesians Week 13) In our everyday life we have the opportunity to listen to the voice of the Holy Spirit and chose to live our life intentionally. We have the option to chose between what is easy and safe and what is intentional and purposeful. We are challenged to trade up to the more meaningful things of life and look through the lens of intentionality. (Eph. 5:14-20, Acts 2:12-15)

"Imitate God" - Tim Mannin

Ephesians (Week 12) Far too many believers get stuck imitating the old traditions of the faith, but the actual story of the gospel is set in the future, it is a story of future restoration. We all can point to something or someone who we are imitating with our behavior and actions. However, we are called to be imitators of God and in doing so we will be a light leading the way forward for all to see. (Eph. 5:1-11, 4:24, Matt. 15:16-17, Acts 10, Acts 11:1-18)

"New Self" - Tim Mannin

Ephesians (Week 11) In the first Sunday of this new year, we are challenged in Ephesians 4 to put off an old self and put on a new self by recognizing who we ought to be and renewing our minds. It takes realizing how much we owe God in order to realize what we ought to be. And when we realize who we ought to be, we have the desire to change. (Eph. 4:17-33, Phil. 2)

"I Am" - Tim Mannin

I Am (Part 1) Starting our new series, we study Exodus 3 and the story of Moses and the burning bush. Moses asks a question that is still relevant in the heart of us today, "Who Am I?" God responds with an answer of peace and power... "I Am With You." In every situation... in fear, in doubt, in stress, in frustration, in anger, in joy, in depression, in everything... "I Am With You." For every need of life, "I Am." (Exodus 3, John 18:4-8)

"Human Joy" - Tim Mannin

Being Human (Part 5) The root of true joy is found in our identity. We must remember who we were created to be. When we place our identity in careers, friends, or finances, we will at some point lose that joy. Where does your identity lie? (Psalm 23, John 16:22, Rom. 15:13, Gal. 5:22, 2 Cor. 6:1-13, Acts, 16:34)

"Follow Your Dream" - Tim Mannin

Dream Wildly (Part 4) Sometimes we can look alive and be dying inside. In these moments we are often afraid and focus on what we don't know rather than what we do know. It is in fear that we limit the limitless one. Live awake, be wide awake for what God has for you. (Jer. 1:5, Phil. 1:6, James 1:23-25, 4:17, 1 John 3:18, Rev. 3:2, Joshua 14:7-12)

"Your Dream" - Tim Mannin

Dream Wildly (Part 2) Your dreams must begin with God's will, but we often feel as though we are searching for the needle of God's will in the haystack of life. However, living in God's will is less about what you do and more about who you are. (1 Thes. 5, Rom. 12, 1 Peter 2, Matt 6, Gal. 5, John 3) 

"Heavy" - Tim Mannin

LIFE: and our hope for good (Part 2) There is a battle for your life. Often we feel overwhelmed and overworked in all areas of our existence. Even though the enemy is working and we can feel the weight of the world on our shoulders, it is in actuality, our creator who holds the world in his hands. (Lam. 3:22-23, John 10:10, 1 Peter 5:6-11, Matthew 7:13-14)

"I Am" - Tim Mannin

Kings (Part 9) From "Kings" to "The King," we wrap up our "Kings" series by looking at the seven "I Am" statements of Christ. Kingship is about realizing that He is EVERYTHING. (John 19:12-16, Exodus 3, John 6:35, 8:12, 10:9, 10:11, 11:25) 

"Prophets & Spears" - Tim Mannin

Kings (Part 2) In the 2nd week of our "Kings" Series, we look at the life of the first king of Israel, Saul. In our life, we have "Saul-like" moments, where we speak prophecy in one moment and throw spears in the next. How do we remain consistent? How do we avoid those moments of tripping up? The answer is found in dependency on Jesus. (1 Samuel 19, Matthew 19:14) 

"We Want To Be Like Them" - Tim Mannin

Kings (Part 1) Today we began our new series "Kings." We will spend the next few weeks looking back into the lives of the Jewish Kings and seeing what God is telling us about our own lives and how we live. This morning we examine who we're choosing as king in our life, do we want what others want, and why we compare ourselves with others. Are we willing to leave the predictable and safe in order to jump from the high-dive into the endless possibilities of what God has for us? (1 Samuel 8:1-21)

"Wrestling With God" - Tim Mannin

Ancient Stories: that teach us new things (Part 2) In the 2nd week of our series, we read the story of Jacob and his struggle to shed his name and his past. He did everything to accumulate wealth and power in order to run from his identity, but it wasn't until he brought it all to God by wrestling through the issue, that he was changed. If you listen long enough in the wrestling, you will begin to hear the blessing. Don't let go. (Gen. 32)
