Series: You Can Change! (Summer 2016)

Our 10-week series “You Can Change” is based on Tim Chester’s book by the same title. Real, lasting, fundamental heart change is entirely possible — but it’s not achievable by pull-yourself-up-by-the-bootstraps, grin-and-bear-it types of methods. Heart transformation only becomes possible as we behold Jesus.

Sow to Faith

by Blaine Freidline | August 21, 2016

To keep growing and changing, we need to hate our sin and humbly take it our merciful God instead of proudly justifying, minimizing, or concealing it.

We change as we learn to do battle with and turn from the desires that take God’s place in our affections.

Turn to Truth

by John Vanderhorst | July 31, 2016

To grow more like Jesus in specific ways, we must identify truths that will break our patterns of wrong thinking and behavior.

The Heart of Your Struggle

by Blaine Freidline | July 24, 2016

It is not your circumstances at the root of your deficient behavior and attitudes — it is your own heart! Understand your heart desires, own them, trust that the sinless Jesus took them as HIS own in His death on the cross, and look to Him to change your heart.

Why Change?

We should want to change because God, having rescued us and won our hearts, calls us and empowers us to become like Jesus.
