Stop Being A JERK

Stop Being A JERK


Today we're going to look at the importance and power of Christian kindness to change our city and reflect the beauty of Jesus in our own lives so people see just how good He is. Listen to this episode to see the power of kindness in a world of darkness.
Everything in our culture tells us that the best life is one where you are served and comfortable. But Jesus envisions the opposite. According to Jesus, the easy life is an empty and unfulfilling life. In the mind of Jesus, it's only when you give up your will, surrender your wants, and forsake your comfort for Him that you will get your soul back. While the American dream promises joy through enhancing your comfort, in the Kingdom, only stepping out of our comfort zones leads to the truest joy.

This episode of the podcast will make you want to pray. Have you ever wondered: What is prayer? How does it work? Maybe you actually have philosophical questions as to whether it even really matters. If you do think it matters, you may feel guilty even thinking about prayer because most of us are so bad at it. But in this episode you'll see that prayer should be our priority because there is real power in prayer to change things. You'll get a vision for how to pray more powerfully than you've prayed before, and hopefully, really want to pray.
Money is merely a means by which we assign value to things. But when God gets a hold of our hearts, it becomes a tool for worship and warfare. In this episode, we'll dive into a biblical exploration on investing money for the Kingdom of God and see the joy of leveraging lesser treasures for the greatest One. Ready to invest?

In our culture, serving is often seen as weakness. But that's a mistake. Because when you serve you're doing something that has the power to make a massive difference in the world, it actually advances the glorious will of God Himself into our dark reality through our humble activity. What a gift! Today's episode is called serve, and to see that you are NEVER more powerful than when you kneel down to serve. To understand this there need to know why two men named Johann and David were WILLINGLY chained up.Are you ready to serve? Join our launch team now using THIS LINK!

We hope these episodes help you turn your convictions into action and give you a biblical framework for living out your faith in Jesus.
An Eternal Army

An Eternal Army


The mission of God is too big for the Gospel to be advanced by a personality on a platform. To impact eternity we need an army. The mission demands a multitude of servant leaders to roll their sleeves up. This isn't our idea, it's the vision of Scripture. The Bible paints this picture of an army of servants ALL being filled and equipped for God's mission. In this Episode, you'll hear the biblical bases for an army of God's people to advance the mission in West Valley.
