The New Testament teaches us that temptation is common to humanity. When temptation comes, how do we combat it? And what should we do when we have a momentary lapse in loyalty, when temptation wins the day?

In the powerful parable contained in Matthew 18, Jesus calls us to respond to those who have hurt us in the only way that is fitting for one who has truly encountered the gracious lord: those who are forgiven must be forgiving. And our forgiveness, like our king’s, knows no bounds.

Pastor Dillon T Thornton - June 16, 2019
What does it mean to pray for daily bread when we already have an abundance of food in the refrigerator? What does it mean to pray for daily bread when we’ve just watched a commercial for Pappa John’s on our 65 inch, 4K television, picked up our iphone, and ordered a pizza?
Living for the King
Pastor Dillon T Thornton - June 9, 2019
Living for the King means displaying what Jesus calls the greater righteousness of the kingdom, a "right relatedness" to God and others that manifests itself in peace, purity, truth, generosity, and grace.
Yearning with God
Pastor Dillon T Thornton - June, 2, 2019
