Salvation is more important than service. And yet we are called to serve others in the name of Jesus. What should be our proper heart posture in service? Learn how to base your joy on Jesus and not on serving others or their responses to you.
In this last BE'N'GO message, we discover how important it is to serve others AS the people of God. We serve as saints and not as sinners. Our identity is defined by what Jesus has done for us, not what we do for Jesus.
Before God's people can serve for God, they must internalize God's great love for them. This message reminds Christians that God loved us first, and in response, we love Him. God's love for His people is what motivates, sustains and renews our relationship with Him - not our service.
This is the last of a three-part study on the doctrine of the Holy Spirit. In it, we look at Galatians 5 and the result of the Spirit\'s work in the life of a Christian. Every believer who allows the Spirit to lead will experience His fruit.
This is the first message in a three-part series on the Holy Spirit in our \"Think to Change\" emphasis. What does the Bible teach us about our relationship to the Holy Spirit? How does He relate to the Father and the Son? How does He benefit the lives of believers?
This is the last part of a three-part series on the doctrine of salvation. From Romans 8:12-16, we learn that we can have assurance of our salvation. In this message, we learn how to be confident that we belong to God and are saved.
This is the second message in our Think to Change focus on salvation. In Philippians 2:12-13, we are instructed to work out our salvation AND that God works IN us. How do these two realities impact us as we live and think like Jesus?
We experienced a powerful Sunday of worship and testimony as our youth shared about their experience at Crossroads Summer Camp. We called an \"audible\" when our service ran long. Our lead pastor Jeff Noble shared briefly from Deuteronomy 7 and invited others to share as well. What a great Sunday! We will return to our regularly scheduled Think to Change series next week with Neal Nelson teaching.
This message looks at the central teaching about salvation from Ephesians 2:1-10. It launches our summer 2017 \"Think to Change\" series. We are rescued and saved because of grace through faith in Jesus, not through our own effort.
On Sunday, June 11, 2017, we had a special service of worship and sharing in celebration of our Acts study. This podcast contains the stories and testimonies from the people of Northstar on that Sunday.
This is the last message of our Acts series. With Paul finally in Rome, his tale ends with him being under house arrest. How does his full life of ministry and mission to this point reveal a heart fully committed to Jesus? Listen in as we examine principles and challenges for living a life that writes the next chapter of Acts.
Acts 27 tells the harrowing adventure of Paul\'s journey to Rome by ship and how a massive storm on the Mediterranean almost claimed the life of the apostle and all on the ship. Paul was encouraged by an angel, shipwrecked and snake-bit, all in this message. What can we learn when life\'s storms get us down?
In Acts 25-26, Paul has an opportunity to share his testimony before a Roman governor and a King. He is called crazy for his views that Jesus is God. We learn principles for defending our own faith and being willing to be thought crazy for Christ.
In Acts 24, Paul is on trial before Felix, the Roman governor. Felix is a compelling example of somone with spiritual curiosity that never leads to spiritual commitment. What does it mean for a person to have saving faith?
In our annual \"Send Off Sunday,\" we recognize those who will be transitioning out of our community and encourage them to \"be the church\" wherever they are sent. We look at 2 Corinthians 3:1-3 for principles of living sent.
