The question goes; “If God wants me to be happy, and I’m not happy, then did God fail me?” What happens when we don’t get our prayers answered the way we want them? What happens when I don’t get the material possessions I wanted, but I have the faith to believe I should get them? What kind of depth of faith do we have if we haven’t yet learned to suffer through the hard times? God has something more for each one of us, and maybe that means not getting the happiness we seek. Join us for this sermon on debunking the myth of the prosperity gospel.

Some people think all roads lead to God. Some people think that since Jesus died, everyone is automatically saved. Some people think all religions are the same and all roads lead to God. Who’s right, and how do we know who is right? If one is right, does that make the others wrong? What happens to people outside the faith? Join us this week as we explore whether all roads lead to God or not.

Don’t take this one on alone. You need God’s spiritual authority to defeat the enemy.

Join us to find out how demons work, what they do, and how to stand victorious in Jesus Christ.
Strongholds in life are real. Many people face financial strongholds, relationship strongholds, mental strongholds, even physical strongholds. So many things take our identity and toss it to the curb. The devil is out to get us to believe a lie and say that we are stuck in our ways. God says we have divine powers to demolish strongholds in life. Join us for this biblical look at freedom.

The point of the encounter is to “stop wavering and make a decision of which God to follow”. What are the false gods in your life that you’ve given allegiance to? Where do you find your faith wavering? Who is getting all your worship? Do you worship the God of heaven, or the gods of worry, money, power, pleasure and sex? It’s time to stop wavering and worship Jesus.
