    A thought-provoking conversation on evangelism

    This week we’ve been talking about how to share the gospel in a pluralistic culture. It’s the same challenge that the apostle Paul faced in his day.

    Expressing God’s love to a lost world

    “For God so loved the world” is a phrase we’re used to hearing. Throughout the pages of the Bible, God speaks of His love and compassion for everyone. Don’t miss this important discussion.

    How Paul related to a pluralistic culture

    Our world is changing, and change is difficult. So what should our attitude be as we face all the changes in the culture around us? Join us as we start a new series in Acts 17, calling Christians to engage the world.

    What we can learn from Paul about evangelism

    Are you a chameleon? That is to say, do you change your behavior depending on who you’re with? Is that always bad? Join us as we continue learning from Paul this week.

    The End of Days and the Mount of Olives

    The Mount of Olives is one of the Bible’s most significant locations. It was here that Jesus taught His disciples to pray, where He was arrested and led off to judgment, and where His disciples watched Him ascend into heaven after His resurrection. And in the days to come—on a date unknown to us—this is where Jesus will return to judge the nations and establish peace. Visit this most important site: the Mount of Olives. Hear what those who live here have to say about the end of days and the role the Mount of Olives will play in God’s rescue—God’s peace plan for all people.

    Jerusalem: Eternal City

    Jerusalem—in land area, a relatively small city when compared to New York, Paris, or Mexico City. In population, for every person here in Jerusalem there are 50 in Tokyo. In natural beauty, she doesn’t compare to San Francisco, Istanbul, or Geneva. No skyscrapers capture the eye on her skyline. Yet for ongoing international fame and world attention, Jerusalem takes a backseat to no other city. And according to the Bible, it will remain at the center of world attention into the future. Discover “Jerusalem: Eternal City.”
