Why Behind the Wait

12/4/2022
Waiting can be difficult. Whether you’re waiting for a place, pace, problem, or a person, you can start to lose hope easily. You might find yourself asking, “God, where are you?” Throughout the Old Testament we see a lot of waiting. God promised a savior and messiah to His people and then another 400 years passed. But just at the perfect time, God sent His son. While God’s people were waiting, He was working. While we are waiting on something in our lives today, God is working. At the...

What Are You Holding Onto?

11/27/2022
When life isn’t going well, do you find yourself trying to grab onto something thinking it will give you hope in that moment or a feeling of wholeness? We all have that temptation to grasp onto lesser things that only bring temporary healing. When God’s love is small in our eyes, the response to His love will be small in our lives. We start to respond with small sacrifices, turn to small leaders, and gravitate to only small connections. We try to set up borders when it comes to God’s love....

4 Places of Authority

11/20/2022
Priests, judges, kings, and prophets were the primary leadership roles in the Old Testament. This leadership system was not replaced by Jesus but redeemed by Him in the New Testament. Jesus showed us what it really meant to be a priest by representing the people to God. Instead of living off the offerings of the people, Jesus offered Himself to God for the people. He is the perfect High Priest. He showed us throughout scripture that He’s also the perfect Judge, King, and Prophet. Jesus...

God's Idea of Love

11/13/2022
What’s your idea of love today? Is it fueled from God or from our culture? Our culture has taken the idea of love and warped it. We have forgotten that God is love and instead we have made love our god. When this happens, we take love and make it according to our preferences and stay away from unconditional commitment. In the book of Ruth, she gives us a picture of love that’s not based on how we feel inside but based on who God truly is. Biblical love is not an emotion we feel. It’s a path...

Provision and Presence

11/7/2022
We often make judgements of who God is based on our circumstances or what’s going on in the world. But when we dive into the scriptures, we see the truth revealed in His word. Just as God provided and was fully present for the people of Israel, He provides for and is present with us today. Do you recognize God as your source? When we give our life over to Jesus, it’s just the beginning of a beautiful spiritual journey in which we must allow God’s presence to transform us.

Importance of Generosity

10/30/2022
When you think of the spiritual disciplines, generosity might not be the first to come to mind. However, it is as equally as important as the others. Generosity is not primarily for the good the church can do with your gifts, but rather how it will re-posture you for the good you will do with your life. Generosity frees, heals, and unleashes us.

Jesus Revealed in the Passover

10/29/2022
God wants us to experience Him fully and know His son Jesus. When we look at the Passover in Exodus, we see how Jesus is revealed throughout scripture. Just as the lamb was sacrificed for the Jewish people, Jesus is the perfect, unblemished, sacrificial lamb offered for our sins. God was establishing the new covenant, His new promise with humanity, fulfilling the prophecy. Putting our faith and trust completely into God, will give us confidence in forgiveness and confidence that He has a...

Wrestling with Belief

10/23/2022
Why is this happening to me? Where are you God? We’ve all asked ourselves these questions at some point in our lives. Often the wrestling in our lives is with belief. Jacob wrestles with God but in the end comes out spiritually stronger. From his story we learn that there is healing from brokenness and when we tighten our grip on God, we loosen our grip on ourselves. Holding on with both hands involves declaring what’s true even when it’s difficult to believe.

God's Reliable Promises | John Reilly

10/16/2022
As we continue to study the Old Testament, a consistent thread emerges. There are no circumstances that can prevent God’s redemptive and reliable promises. When we look at the story of Abram in Genesis, we see that his journey isn’t perfect. We see him trying to take control away from God, using others, and lying about it. But God uses the obedience of imperfect people to carry out His perfect plan. The reliability of a promise hinges on the promise giver. God’s promises are reliable because...

Change in Perspective

10/9/2022
The Tower of Babel seems wonderful on the surface, but in reality, it was the start of idolatry, mistreatment of the Image Dei, and direct disobedience of God. Noah’s decedents were trying to make a name for themselves while striving for acceptance, security, and significance without God. They also disobeyed God’s command to be fruitful and multiply by staying in one place. The story of Babel is the story of us. In what ways do we strive for acceptance and significance? How do we disobey...

Chaos to Order

10/2/2022
In the beginning, God created and moved things from chaos to order. To separate His creation of man from the rest of creation, God created man in His own image to bring order, stability, and peace. However, as we see in Genesis 3, Satan wanted to reintroduce chaos into the world. He belittled and twisted what God revealed in the garden. Satan tries to bring chaos and sin into our lives today. He is aware of the power God’s word can have over us and that’s why he attacks. As we continue this...

Jesus Revealed

9/25/2022
This is the first week of our new fall series, Revealed! Pastor Dave introduces how the Old Testament points to Jesus. When we see Jesus in the Old Testament, it fully opens the scriptures to us and allows us to know Him better. It also prevents us from misperceiving God and frees us from performance driven religion. Understanding the Old Testament law that Jesus fulfilled, reveals just how amazing Jesus truly is.

Know, Experience, and Follow Jesus

9/18/2022
Our mission here at North Way Christian Community is to lead people to know, experience, and follow Jesus. When we do those things, we encounter God. However, each of us naturally prefers one over the other two. You might love mission trips and evangelism, so you prefer the follow circle. There is also one that we don’t prefer. But without all three…know, experience, and follow…our mission is incomplete and ineffective. The longer we stay in our preferred circle alone, the more divided our...

3 Truths About Worship

9/11/2022
We all have roadblocks in our path that keep us from fully stepping into the life that God has for us. Some of us are aware of our roadblocks and we avoid them. Or sometimes they are blind spots and sneak up on us. In this sermon, Pastor Brad Beggs talks about worship roadblocks. Worship isn’t about what we like, but who we love. If we are willing to put aside our certain preferences, circumstances, past experiences, and feelings toward worship, God will pull us close to Him. When God speaks...

How to Share Your Faith

9/4/2022
The life of a Christian was never promised to be an easy one. Would you be willing to suffer ridicule and hate? With today’s cancel culture, we are afraid to share our faith with others. We are afraid to stand up for what the bible teaches. If we are obedient, open our hearts, and start searching for supernatural opportunities, God will equip us with the clarity we need to break through the fear of sharing His word with others.

The Secret To Contentment | John Reilly

8/28/2022
It’s easy to slip into the “if only” mindset where thinking if you have a different job or nicer car makes you feel more content. However, as followers of Jesus, it’s the wrong perspective to have. If contentment is based on a material goal, then enough will never be enough. You’ll keep chasing after it. True contentment in life is not about what you have. It’s about who you have. Jesus is the one who gives us the safety and security we need. It’s a perspective shift. Jesus is always the...

How To Honor Marriage | Dave D’Angelo

8/21/2022
Over the years, there’s been a cultural shift of understanding what marriage looks like in our world. Marriage once was mainly viewed as a permanent, contractual union designed for mutual love, procreation, and protection. Today, it’s often viewed as a terminal contract designed more for personal fulfillment. A question to ask ourselves is, in whose honor are you holding your marriage? Yours or God’s? If we want to understand marriage, we must look to Jesus and what He did for the church. He...

Live In The Now, But Not For The Now | Dave D’Angelo

8/14/2022
Do you ever go through seasons of life wishing you had a remote control to pause, fast forward, or rewind a certain moment? We long for more control in our lives, especially when it comes to time. However, Jesus wants us to live in the now. But not for the now. He wants us to live with an eternal mindset. This starts with allowing God to shape the desires of our heart, practice gratitude, and to move toward Jesus.

3 Keys To Running The Race | Amanda Beggs

8/7/2022
Over the years, we developed this idea that when it comes to following Jesus, there is a spectrum of Christians. However, there is no biblical category for comfortable Christianity. Following Jesus means trading a comfortable life for a challenging life. In Hebrews 12, the author compares following Jesus to running a marathon. Running the race begins with believing in Jesus and ends with looking like Jesus and loving Him more. There are three keys to running the race, fixing our eyes on...
