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.

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