Living a Bold Faith

6/23/2022
As believers, we're often told that we need to be bold in our faith. But what does that look like practically? In this week's episode, we define what having a bold faith is - and just as important what both faith is not. YouTube Interview Series with Stephanie Rodgers Stephanie grew up in the foster care system. If anyone ever had the excuse of being bitter and being an angry person, it's her. Yet, God radically changed her and she now has a life that she never could have dreamt of before....

Decisions: God's Way

6/9/2022
As believers, we know that we ought to include God in our decision making process. But, if we're honest, we just don't know how to. In this week's episode, we're going to break down the problem and give some practical solutions of how you can make sure that you hear from (and follow) Him in the process.

Science + Bible

6/2/2022
As believers, we've been conditioned to think that science and the Bible are at odds. It's a choice either you're a person of faith or a person of reason. Is there any middle ground between these two? Can they both exist together? It's what we're talking about this week.

The God of All Comfort

5/26/2022
Perhaps the most asked question by both believers and non believers alike when it comes to God is...why is there suffering? If God is as good as the Bible says He is, how come doesn't He eliminate suffering? Especially like the heartbreaking, sickening, and life shattering pain that those parents in South Texas are experiencing after the events of this week. Why God allows suffering, what we should do when we find ourselves in the middle of suffering, and the hope God provides in these...

Two Gods of the Bible?

5/5/2022
One of the big mysteries about God is how much He seems to change from the first part of the Bible to the second. The God that's described in the Old Testament seems so harsh and vengeful...sometimes destroying entire nations of men, women and children. But in the New Testament, Jesus comes on the scene and there seems to be a shift in God's outlook to peace and love. Did something happen to make God have a complete change of character? Is He just bi-polar? or Is there another explanation?...

When Christians Doubt

4/28/2022
One of the hardest things for believers to admit is doubt. We're not talking about questioning God's plan, but actually wondering if God truly exists and if this super natural gospel message is just too good to be true. It's taboo in most church circles that's for sure, but if this in anyway describes your relationship with God at times...this episode is for you.

What About Community?

4/21/2022
One of the biggest buzzwords in our society as a whole and in the church is community. Obviously, it means surrounding yourself with like minded people. The key is that it’s more about giving than receiving. But how? We have a few ideas and a foolproof way to find the right community for yourself.

When God Doesn't Answer Correctly

3/31/2022
If you've been a follower of Jesus for any length of time, you know it's not always mountain tops. If we're honest, we'd probably say that life is more walking through valleys than anything else. No valley is harder than the ones when God doesn't answer the way we've been praying for Him to. It can really rock your faith. We all have heard the stories of those who've completely walked away from their faith all together. We're diving deep into this tricky area of faith. Sign up for our...

When Christians Judge

3/24/2022
One of the most quoted scriptures by both believers and non believers alike is 'judge not lest you be judged.' It's true that Jesus spoke these words during the Sermon on the Mount, but what exactly did He mean by it?

Should I be Struggling with Sin?

3/3/2022
As believers in Christ, we are forgiven of all of our sin. If that's true, why do we still struggle with sin? Or is it a sign that we haven't been completely forgiven? And how can we live in victory over sin when temptation is literally everywhere? It's a tough conversation, but we're having it this week!

How NOT to Speak Truth in Love

2/24/2022
If you've been around church culture for any length of time, you've probably heard that we're to "speak truth in love" to those around us...whether it's to the culture or others in the faith. But too often, because people are people, the truth becomes a weapon used to put people in their place instead of being used to guide and instruct. How do we keep this from happening to us? It's what we're discussing on this week's Steve & Bethany's Hopecast. Send Us Your Feedback on this Episode We...
