10/2/2022
Hear what Pastor Greg Laurie has to say about doing marriage God’s way! Husbands, this one’s especially for you! Notes A successful marriage is a total commitment. Wedlock should be a padlock. 1.

As the family goes, so goes the nation. Satan hates what God loves. And the man said, “This is now bones of my bones...

Which Side Are You On? | Warning Against Idolatry

9/26/2022
We throw the word idol around pretty freely in our culture. “So-and-so is a teen idol” . . . “did you watch American Idol?” . . . “Humphrey Bogart was a matinee idol.” But, biblically speaking, an idol is a representation or symbol of an object of worship. It’s a clear transgression of the First Commandment. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie warns about idol worship based on an epic confrontation in 1 Kings 18. Elijah goes toe-to-toe with the prophets of Baal. Listen on...

Which Side Are You On? | Importance of Waiting on God

None of us likes to wait. Like when we’re on hold hearing that annoying music repeat over and over again. Or when we’re in line at the grocery store or the airport.
