Grace in the Bible, in Fellowship, and to Ourselves
Through the truth of the Bible, we see how to give grace to ourselves and to others. Because of Christ’s work on the cross, we were never on the hook. We are not responsible for saving ourselves. When we continue to ask God and others for forgiveness that has already been granted, we are trying to earn God’s grace and favor, which is not what the Bible teaches.
Why It Matters – The Trinity
In the “Why It Matters” series, we will be taking a look at some of the essential tenets of Christianity.

Why it Matters – The Authority of Scripture
This is the second piece in our “Why It Matters” series where we look at the important beliefs of Christianity. Every year, writers and preachers articulate the authenticity of the Bible authors and its track record of accurately fulfilled prophecies. However, the evidence that Chris shares in this piece is the power and authority of Scripture is his personal life.
Why it Matters – The Humanity of Christ
Believe what you want about who Jesus was, but there is no doubt that he was. Jesus of Nazareth lived at a fixed time in a real place. These are historical facts attested to by non-religious historians, ancient writings, the Bible, and the world’s most-recognized calendar for 2,000 years. The humanity of Christ is a real fact - the question is - why does it matter?
Why It Matters – The Atonement
The atonement is the work of God, in Jesus, to reconcile man and himself and to conquer sin and death forever. The atonement makes it possible for humankind to know God, and to experience life as he intended it; free of sin and the fear of death. Atonement was completed in the perfect life and sacrificial death of Jesus Christ.
“That’ s My Boy!” How God Loves Us (Lent Series Week 2)
Don’t forget what God thinks of you and the reason he sent Jesus to us - the season we celebrate in Lent. He came because you are his. He came because he loves you. He came because you are his kid, his prize, his masterpiece, his greatest joy, and he will not stand for your separation from him. Out of his love he has made a way. Out of his love he has endured the cross. Out of his pride, joy, passion, and love he calls you his own.
