    Everybody knows the story of Jonah as the story of a man who was supposed to have been alive in the belly of a whale. But the story of Jonah is about something completely different than marine biology. Join us this week as Tom Bayly preaches through the book of Jonah as we look at the God whom Jonah serves: the God of second chances.

    Life in the church as messy, but it's made better by following Christ more closely. But following Christ more closely is easier said than done. This week, we look at Paul's exhortation to the Corinthians in 4:14-21 and hear ourselves how we ought to seek godly men and women to become imitators of.

    Christianity has had a privileged position in American culture for a long time. But that's starting to dwindle. Does Christianity have to be popular to be powerful? This week, we look at 1 Corinthians 4:8-13 to see the Apostle Paul's take on following Jesus even when it's unpopular.

    christ, church, corinthians, god, gospel, jesus, paul, worth

    The world offers you two ways to prove your worth: you can prove yourself to others, or you can prove yourself to yourself. This week we look at 1 Corinthians 3:18-4:7 to find how the gospel offers a different way entire, where worth is found and not earned.

    beliefs, church, corinthians, foundation, god, jesus, rock, worldview

    Every house needs a foundation and a frame, and not every material is as good for building as another. We look at 1 Corinthians 3:10-15 to see what's built on the foundation of Jesus Christ.

  • A Proper View of Ministers

    February 18th, 2019  |  Season 15  |  20 mins 55 secs
    church, jesus, minister, servant

    Pastor, preacher, reverend... they're all titles for a minister. But what's a minister? And why does it even matter unless you're a minister yourself? We look at 1 Corinthians 3:5-9 to find out the reasons why a proper view of a minister matters to everyone.

  • Time to Grow Up

    corinthians, grow, growing, jesus, spirit, spirituality

    Christians are said to be "born-again", but that implies we need to grow up a second time. What does growing up as a Christian look like, and are we really all supposed to grow up? This week, we look at 1 Corinthians 3:1-4 to figure out what it means to grow up spiritually.

  • How To Be Spiritual

    As we continue our series on Life in the Church, we look at what it means to be spiritual. The good news is that you don't have to be a monk to be spiritual. We look at 1 Corinthians 2:6-16 to find out what it takes.

  • Jesus Would Lose a Popularity Contest

    jesus popularity gospel christ crucified corinthians

    The church talks about the gospel a lot. But why? Is the gospel really that important? We look at 1 Corinthians 1:18-2:5 to see how the gospel wasn't that popular to the culture of the time, and might not be popular to the culture of our time. But it still has the same power.

  • Cliques in the Church

    Cliques are a part of life, not just high school. Unfortunately, they show up in the church, too. This week, we look 1 Corinthians 1:10-17 to see how cliques are addressed in the church and learn why unity is so important.

  • Grace in the Church

    January 14th, 2019  |  Season 15  |  17 mins 10 secs
    church, faithfulness, god, grace, jesus, life

    Life in the church often looks a lot like life outside the church. We begin our look at life in the church by focusing on 1 Corinthians 1:4-9, where Paul thanks God for his grace in the church.
