How Baptism Shapes Our Identity and Culture

8/26/2019
More
Whether we are aware of it or not, everyone is being "baptized." While the church baptizes believers in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, the culture is baptizing us into the trinitarian values of consumption, production, and acquisition. This week on the Lifeschool Podcast we talk with author and pastor Eric Peterson and get a pastoral perspective on the power of baptism to lead people deeply into a more sacred way of life. When we operate out of our identity–believing that we...

Living life as a ‘family on mission’ with others in community is a big commitment.

How the Gospel Speaks to Anger

7/29/2019

Why Discipleship Is Like Reparenting People

7/8/2019

So many people have never been taught basic life skills, and certainly not how to view all of life through the lens of the Gospel.

In so many ways it mirrors the same steps...
