Are you overwhelmed by trials and tribulations? Instead of asking how much you can handle start asking how big is our God? God can deliver you from whatever you are experiencing today. He can provide a way out. He wants to re-create the image of Jesus in you. In this inspiring sermon Jill Morikone will share from the Bible how to change your focus and start experiencing God in a new way today.
The words of Scripture can be full of surprises. Sometimes the thoughts God reveals to us in the Bible are challenging to our understanding because there is more in God’s Word that needs to be explored—and obeyed. But sometimes it is not the words of Scripture that pose the biggest challenge to our faith. It is God’s silence. So what do we do when God is silent? This article, by Dr. Frank Hasel, offers some new perspectives to grow our eyes of faith.
In this inspiring Ministry in Motion video, Jeffrey Brown talks about what it means to be a servant leader, following in the footsteps of Christ. The Bible tells us, "Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many." Matt. 20:28
When God brought Eve to Adam, it was love at first sight! God then performed the very first marriage ceremony, blessing the man and woman, uniting them together that the two might become one. God intended marriage to be an unending source of joy and love, of companionship and growth.

In this video, Pastor Ted Wilson is joined by his wife Nancy as they talk about marriage and seeking out God’s love in our lives.
The Coronavirus changed life as we know it. Social distancing became a main theme everywhere. In some countries the medical system has become overwhelmed. Where is God in all this? Is Covid-19 a judgement of God? Or is it just random out of control virus? What does the Bible say about pestilences? Is this a sign of the end of the world? Is there hope on the horizon? Based on the Biblical Story of the Fall and God’s promises of hope and new life in heaven, Pastor Mark Finley talks about God’s endless love and unshakable hope.

In 1905, Ellen White wrote, "In this age, just prior to the second coming of Christ in the clouds of heaven, God calls for men who will prepare a people to stand in the great day of the Lord."
