What it Takes

In our unstable world where public opinion shifts quickly and it’s easy to lose relationships over little things, we could all use a little security and clarity in where we stand with God.

Fast Forward

What’s the secret behind actually doing what Jesus did? In his showdown with Satan in the wilderness, Jesus shows us how to overcome the tests and temptations that are sure to come our way.

Stopped in Our Tracks

What’s one thing you’re doing now, that if you stopped doing it, it would change your life for the better?

Oh, the Places YOu’ll Go!

Caught in the Middle

All of us know what it’s like to feel caught in the middle of a complicated situation. Whether it be caught in between family or friends in conflict or caught in the middle of the competing narratives in our polarized world.  In our Humans of the Bible Series, we’ve been looking at fascinating and unsung characters in Scripture and in this message, we want to look at an amazing character who was caught in the middle of two powerful men.…

But Jesus offers us a better way to expand our relational connections as we begin to see “them” as “us”. *Christ’s Church is a strategic partner of Grace Chapel in Lexington, MA and features the teaching of Pastor Bryan Wilkerson and the Grace Chapel Teaching Team.

Beyond the Good Life

Americans are all about living “the good life,” whether that means money or health or family or all of the above. But what happens when we find those things are not enough?

The Secret of Happiness

Life is full of interruptions, frustrations and disappointments. Sometimes it doesn’t feel like God cares about our happiness on this earth. But that’s not the case at all.
