  • Easter: Belong. Believe. Become

    Easter: Belong. Believe. Become

    04/04/2021 Duración: 45min

    We often focus on Jesus dying on a cross, but our faith is REALLY about Jesus living and breathing AFTER dying on a cross. In this message, Pastor Jamie Nunnally, shares how the death of Jesus makes the way for each of us to belong, believe, and become in this life.  John 11:25 “Jesus told her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Anyone who believes in me will live, even after dying.”  1 Corinthians. 15:55 “O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?” Christians don’t die, we just change locations. So, what does Easter mean for us?The resurrection lets us belong, believe and become. John 8:2-12  1. Because of the resurrection, you BELONG.Jesus defended her, He accepted her, then He discipled her. How you respond to other people’s sin reveals how much like Jesus you are.  2. Because of the resurrection, you can BELIEVE.Acts 1:3 “During the forty days after he suffered and died, he appeared to the apostles from time to time, and he proved to them in many ways that he was actually alive. And h

    Culture Shock Part 4: Kingdom Communication

    28/03/2021 Duración: 35min

    Every culture has their own language. So, what is the language of God's Kingdom? In this message, Pastor Jamie shares how we can use our words for His glory. In the New Testament, James says that whoever tames his tongue is a perfect man. One of things that makes up a culture is language, and there is a Kingdom language that Christians are supposed to speak. Your words are tools that can be used to help or hurt. What you say can bring hope or bring harm. It’s up to you.  Proverbs 18:21 “Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.”  What you say matters. 1. Your words are powerful. Proverbs 12:18  Psalm 141:3  2. You don’t have to say everything you think.Your tongue can un-do your testimony. You don’t have to have an opinion on everything. Proverbs 13:3 James 1:26  3. Your words reveal the real you.Luke 6:45 Your words are a window into who you are.     How to speak Kingdom Communication:1. Kingdom Communication requires that you are aware of who you’re talkin

    Culture Shock Part 3: You Are What You Eat

    21/03/2021 Duración: 34min

    You’ve heard that  “You are what you eat.” Do you know that this applies to your spiritual life? So, what did you eat today? In this message, Pastor Jamie Nunnally shares how to make sure that you are properly feeding yourself spiritually. Food is one of the things that make up a culture. We were created to require constant intake and that intake determines our output. Proverbs 4:23 – “Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.”  What you eat matters:1. You’re full of what you feed on.If you’re full of the world, you won’t have room for things of the spirit. If you’re full of the Spirit, you won’t be tempted by things of the world.  2. You crave what you consume.Feeding an appetite doesn’t make it go away, it makes it grow. 3. Lack of hunger is a symptom of sickness. If you've lost your appetite for spiritual food, you're probably spiritually sick. What you hunger for reveals your health. 4. Your quality of food determines your quality of life.Other things may make y

    Culture Shock part 2: Kingdom Clothes

    14/03/2021 Duración: 36min

    Different cultures have different clothing styles. So, what are people in the Kingdom of God supposed to be wearing? In this series, we are learning how to be in the world but not of the world. In this message, Pastor Jamie Nunnally shares the essentials of walking in your kingdom identity and authority.  Your clothing reveals your identity.Mark 10:50 – “Throwing his cloak aside, he jumped to his feet and came to Jesus.” Your clothing reveals your authority.Luke 15:22 “But his father said to the servants, ‘Quick! Bring the finest robe in the house and put it on him. Get a ring for his finger and sandals for his feet.” What are the kingdom clothes that Christians should wear? 1. Right living. Romans 13:12-13 “The night is almost gone; the day of salvation will soon be here. So remove your dark deeds like dirty clothes, and put on the shining armor of right living. 13 Because we belong to the day, we must live decent lives for all to see. Don’t participate in the darkness of wild p

    Culture Shock part 1: Home is Where the Heart Is

    07/03/2021 Duración: 39min

    The Bible says that we are not of this world. So where are we from? And how do we live here in the meantime? In this message, Pastor Jamie launches a new series with a message called "Home is Where the Heart Is."Culture shock is the feeling of disorientation experienced by someone who is subjected to an unfamiliar culture or way of life.Jesus' prayer to the Father:John 17:15-16 “My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one. They are not of the world, even as I am not of it.” Home is Where the Heart is:1. You are not from here. Phil 3:20 “For our citizenship is in heaven.”Passion Translation: “we are a colony of heaven on earth”  You know what’s weird to me? It’s not the sinners who sin, but Christians who don’t change. Second Cor. 5:20 – we are “Ambasadors,” a representative from another land, culture or government. 2. This world is passing away. 1 John 2:15-17 The only thing this world can offer you is pleasure, possessions and

  • Power Up Part 4: Power in Agreement

    Power Up Part 4: Power in Agreement

    28/02/2021 Duración: 37min

    Does your life need a power up? In this message, Pastor Jamie Nunnally shares about the power available to every believer when we agree.  Matthew 18:19 “I also tell you this: If two of you agree here on earth concerning anything you ask, my Father in heaven will do it for you.   Greek word for agree: symphoneo (symphony) to harmonize; to make a bargain. Cacophony: harsh discordant mixture of sounds. Agreement brought power at Pentecost:Acts 1:12-14; 2:1-2 Then the apostles returned to Jerusalem from the Mount of Olives, a distance of half a mile. 13 When they arrived, they went to the upstairs room of the house where they were staying. Here are the names of those who were present: Peter, John, James, Andrew, Philip, Thomas, Bartholomew, Matthew, James (son of Alphaeus), Simon (the zealot), and Judas (son of James). 14 They all met together and were constantly united in prayer, along with Mary the mother of Jesus, several other women, and the brothers of Jesus.2:1 On the day of Pe

    Power Up Part 3: Power in the Name of Jesus

    25/02/2021 Duración: 35min

    Names, are they important? Is “Jesus” the magic word? What was Jesus’ last name? In this message, Pastor Jamie Nunnally shares biblical insight about the power found in the name of Jesus.  Philippians 2:9-11 “Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord,  to the glory of God the Father.”What is Jesus’ name? Yeshua in Hebrew (Joshua), Iēsoûs  in Greek (Jesus)The names means “Jehovah is salvation” Mashiach in Hebrew (Messiah), Christos in Greek (Christ) Using the name of Jesus is not magic. John 14:13-14 “You can ask for anything in my name, and I will do it, so that the Son can bring glory to the Father. 14 Yes, ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it!” When you do something in Jesus’ name you are doing it in His authority, His ability and His attitude. Pray

  • Power Up Part 2: Power in Weakness

    Power Up Part 2: Power in Weakness

    14/02/2021 Duración: 33min

    Power in weakness? Our culture says that to gain power, you need to work harder. Our culture says to do more. Pastor Eric Robertson shares biblical advice to find power in weakness. Sometimes we think that to walk in the power of God, we need to pray more and read the Bible more.  Many times our work takes the focus off of God, who is our source of power.God chooses the weak.    "The Bible has a history of choosing unconventional people in extraordinary ways.”·         Gideon (Judges 6:11) ·         Moses (Exodus 3:4)·         David (1 Samuel 16:7) God doesn’t look for people who have it all together but for people He can pour his power into.How do you Power Up?     1) Acknowledge your weakness.     2) Invite God into it.      3) Talk about it.2 Corinthians 11:30 Paul boasted in weakness: “ If I must boast, I will boast of the things that show my weakn

    Everyone likes upgrades! Do you want to know how to upgrade your spiritual life? In this message, Pastor Jamie Nunnally shares godly insight on how to walk in the power of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit wants to be IN you and ON you. Acts 1:8 “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”Acts 19:1-7  The Holy Spirit on you gives you power.Luke 24:49 “I am sending the promise of my Father upon you. But stay in the city until you are clothed with power from on high.”  Your salvation helps you, but your empowerment helps others.  What kind of power does the Holy Spirit make available to us? 1. The power to change. Gal. 5:16 “Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.” Ephesians 2:13 “For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him.”Work o

    I Have Decided, Part 4: Disciples Who Make Disciples

    31/01/2021 Duración: 37min

    According to Jesus, disciples make new disciples. But how to you go about that? In this message, Pastor Jamie Nunnally shares biblical insights about how you can make disciples.  Kingdom growth is designed to be by multiplication, not addition.2 Timothy 2:2  Every Christian should be a disciple and should have a disciple. 1. You should be someone’s disciple.1 Corinthians 11:1 “Imitate me, just as I also imitate Christ.”2. You should have a disciple.Ephesians 4:16 You often grow more by teaching the class then by taking the class. Discipleship is NOT:1. Having or being a clone.Hebrews 13:6 2. Controlling or being controlled.Colossians 1:18 You leaders don’t hear from God for you; they hear from God with you.3. Bible study.2 Timothy 3:10 Discipleship is not only bible study but behavior study and application through conversation.   How do you make disciples?1.Be the kind of person others want to follow. 1 Peter 5:3 “Don’t lord it over the people assign

    I Have Decided Part3: What Did Jesus Do?

    24/01/2021 Duración: 33min

    Have you ever heard someone ask "What would Jesus do?" That question is answered when we look at scripture and ask "What DID Jesus do?" In this message, Pastor Jamie shares about what Jesus did so that we Jesus-followers know what we should expect to be doing as well. We can know what would Jesus do when we look at what did Jesus do. Jesus is our example:1 Peter 2:21“…He is your example, and you must follow in his steps.”1 John 2:6“Those who say they live in God should live their lives as Jesus did.”Your Jesus-talk is supposed authenticated by your Jesus-walk.1 John 4:17“…as he is so also are we in this world.”We are Jesus’ representatives. A representative re-presents something or someone to the world around them.  Three Things Jesus Did That We Should Also Do: Words, Works and Wonders.1. Words. Jesus used words to preach the gospel of the kingdom. Matthew 4:17, 2 Corinthians 5:19-20 2. Works. Jesus did good works that demonstrated the love of God. John 9:4, Matthew 5:16Lov

    Did you ever play Follow The Leader? In this message Pastor Jamie Nunnally explains that discipleship is simply doing what your leader does.  The word disciple appears over 200 times in the New Testament. “Christian” only 3. The Bible is a book about disciples written by disciples, intended to be read by disciples. What is a disciple?A disciple is an apprentice: someone who learns by doing. John 8:31-32 “A disciple is a person who has decided that the most important thing in their life is to learn how to do what Jesus said to do.” — Dallas Willard Who can be a disciple of Jesus?Matthew 4:18-22, Matthew 9:9  The goal of Christianity is not behavior modification, but heart transformation—with the understanding that as your heart changes, your conduct will change.  How do we follow the leader?Matthew 28:18-201. A disciple embraces Jesus’ authority, not their own. In the game follow the leader, there has to be one leader! 2. A disciple is baptized – Imme

    Who are you following? Maybe you consider yourself a follower of Jesus. Are you a follower? A fan? A secret admirer?In this message Pastor Jamie describes three types of relationships people have with Jesus. Which one are you?   1. Secret admirer.John 3:1-2“There was a man named Nicodemus, a Jewish religious leader who was a Pharisee. 2 After dark one evening, he came to speak with Jesus. “Rabbi,” he said, “we all know that God has sent you to teach us. Your miraculous signs are evidence that God is with you.”A secret admirer only THINKS about the object of their affection. 2. Fan.John 6:1-2, 25-26, 53, 66 A fan declares their devotion, but it doesn’t change their life. 3. Follower.John 6:67-69“Then Jesus turned to the Twelve and asked, “Are you also going to leave?” 68 Simon Peter replied, “Lord, to whom would we go? You have the words that give eternal life. 69 We believe, and we know you are the Holy One of God.”Luke 9:23“Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny the

  • Great Expectations

    Description: What are your expectations for 2021? In this message, pastor Jamie Nunnally shares the significance of expectations and his top two expectations for 2021.  What are expectations? Expectations are assumed outcomes. God is an optimist. Your expectations affect your quality of life. You usually find what you’re looking for.  When disappointed, asking the question “What was I expecting?” often helps identify why you feel the way you do about what happened.  Two things I am expecting for 2021:1. To abide in Christ.John 15:4 The Abiding Circle : God is the central point from which all other areas of your life flow.  2. To be used however God wants.Romans 12:13-16We love God by loving others. God considers serving others the same as serving Him.  Matt 25:37-40  You don’t have to choose between helping others and helping yourself. Don’t wait to get your life together to start serving others. Serving others is HOW you get

    Christmas Playlist part 3: Silent Night

    20/12/2020 Duración: 35min

    Can Jesus relate to the mess of our lives?Many Christmas songs give off this idea that the birth of Jesus was unrealistically quiet, calm and peaceful.The problem, life is usually NOT silent, NOT peaceful and NOT calm, especially around Christmas! Pastor Jamie Nunnally shares that If we idealize the birth of Jesus too much, we might miss the main message of Christmas: God meets us in the middle of our mess. Christmas through Mary’s eyes:Luke 1:26-35 “34 Mary asked the angel, “But how can this happen? I am a virgin.” 35 The angel replied, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the baby to be born will be holy, and he will be called the Son of God.”Mary experienced confusion, fear and uncertainty. But God was in the middle of Mary’s mess. From Mary’s story we learn:  finding favor with God can lead to confusion, fear, and uncertainty. But, God is in the middle of the mess.  Christmas through Joseph’s eyes:Matthew 1:18-21 “20 As he con

    13/12/2020 Duración: 31min

    Are you walking in joy? Can we really live in joy? In this message, Pastor Jamie Nunnally shares how we can walk in joy.   Luke 2:10 “And so the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people.”  What is Joy?  Joy is a feeling of internal gladness or cheerfulness, that is unaffected by external circumstances.  Happiness is based on what happens, but you make the choice to rejoice. Things to know about Joy:1. Christians are supposed to be known for their joy.1 Peter 1:8  2. Joy comes from God.He is constant and consistent in His joy. Nehemiah 8:10 “the joy of the Lord is your strength.”Your goal is not to increase your joy, but to acquire His joy.  Psalm 16:11 “In Your presence is fullness of joy.”My joy doesn't come from "them" but from Him. Galatians 5:22-23 “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentlenes

    Hopelessness can be rough. Have you been hopeless? In this message, Pastor Jamie Nunnally shares the remedy for hopelessness.What is Hope?  Hope is the confident expectation that something will happen. Hope is not wanting something to happen, it’s knowing something will happen. When someone loses hope in a situation, they take on the identity of defeat in that area: hopelessness.  Things to know about Hope:1. Hope comes from knowing God’s promises. Hebrews 6:13-18, 2 Peter 1:4 2. Hope is the proper response to the character of God. Hebrews 10:23 – “Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful.”  You can trust God’s heart even when you can’t see His hand.  3. Hope defeats disappointment.Many of us have forgotten how to hope because we’ve been so hurt. Romans 5:3-5 “And not only this, but [a]we also celebrate in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance; 4 and perseverance, proven c

    There is a secret to your emotional well-being. There is a feeling that you can experience in every situation. This is a feeling that you should be hooked on.  The story of 1 out of 10 lepers: Luke 17:11-19  Gratitude is the difference between being healed and being whole.  Gratitude brings spiritual breakthrough, physical health and emotional well-being. Psalm 100:4 “Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise!” Thank you is the password to God’s presence.  Philippians 4:6-7 “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Living a life of thankfulness will make you live longer and live better. How to grow your gratitude:1. Slow down and notice everything. Luke 17:18  2. Adopt a positive perspective. 1 Thessalonia
