Looking Back & Looking Forward (2015-2016)

In this final message of theis miniseries, we ask the question: "Are we (the church) any different from other groups of nice people?".  God's word is like a mirror, showing us our true selves, and the only sane response is to do something about what we see.  However, we quite often leave deluding ourselves.

Message Series: 
Looking Back & Looking Forward (2015-2016)

This message focuses on looking forward by embracing a life of "Up. In. Out."  We are to grow in trusting God by reflecting His image back to Him (Up), to one another (In), and to the world around us (Out).  This journey of trust is exemplified by four episodes from the life of Abraham.

This second of this mini-series talks about looking forward, pressing on, spiritual growth, avoiding perfectionism, and embracing grace-based goal setting.  Because of the Gospel of Grace, we are freed to try!  And our lives now really matter.  This message specifically covers WOTYs and BHAGGs (Words Of The Year and Big, Hairy, Audacious, God-sezed Goals).
