Pastor Jonie spoke on how we are God’s masterpiece and how He is also the master-peace maker! Check it out down below!
1 Once you were dead because of your disobedience and your many sins. 2 You used to live in sin, just like the rest of the world, obeying the devil—the commander of the powers in the unseen world. He is the spirit at work in the hearts of those who refuse to obey God. 3 All of us used to live that way, following the passionate desires and inclinations of our sinful nature. By our very nature we were subject to God’s anger, just like everyone else. 4 But God is so rich in mercy, and he loved us so much, 5 that even though we were dead because of our sins, he gave us life when he raised Christ from the dead. (It is only by God’s grace that you have been saved!) 6 For he raised us from the dead along with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ Jesus. 7 So God can point to us in all future ages as examples of the incredible wealth of his grace and kindness toward us, as shown in all he has done for us who are united with Christ Jesus. 8 God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. 9 Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it. 10 For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.
Ephesians 2:1-10 (NLT)
Pastor Hector Ahumada reads from Ruth 1:1-22 (ESV)
Pastor Ryan Gentles spoke to us about our refuge in God and what it means for us as spiritual refugees. You can listen down below!
19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the LORD delivers him out of them all. 20 He keeps all his bones; not one of them is broken. 21 Affliction will slay the wicked, and those who hate the righteous will be condemned. 22 The LORD redeems the life of his servants; none of those who take refuge in him will be condemned.
Psalm 34:19-22 (ESV)
1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. 2 Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way, though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea, 3 though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble at its swelling. Selah
Psalms 46:1-3 (ESV)
18 so that by two unchangeable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled for refuge might have strong encouragement to hold fast to the hope set before us. 19 We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that enters into the inner place behind the curtain, 20 where Jesus has gone as a forerunner on our behalf, having become a high priest forever after the order of Melchizedek.
Hebrews 6:18-20 (ESV)
11 Inside the Tent of Meeting, the Lord would speak to Moses face to face, as one speaks to a friend. Afterward Moses would return to the camp, but the young man who assisted him, Joshua son of Nun, would remain behind in the Tent of Meeting.
Exodus 33:11 (NLT)
6 So when the apostles were with Jesus, they kept asking him, “Lord, has the time come for you to free Israel and restore our kingdom?” 7 He replied, “The Father alone has the authority to set those dates and times, and they are not for you to know. 8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” 9 After saying this, he was taken up into a cloud while they were watching, and they could no longer see him. 10 As they strained to see him rising into heaven, two white-robed men suddenly stood among them. 11 “Men of Galilee,” they said, “why are you standing here staring into heaven? Jesus has been taken from you into heaven, but someday he will return from heaven in the same way you saw him go!”
Acts 1:6-11 (NLT)
This past Sunday guest pastor, Ryan Gentles, spoke on dealing with anxiety as a follower of Christ. If you missed this message or want to hear it again, you can listen down below.
4 Always be full of joy in the Lord. I say it again—rejoice! 5 Let everyone see that you are considerate in all you do. Remember, the Lord is coming soon. 6 Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. 7 Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:4-7 (NLT)

Two thousand years ago, a gathering of people in a middle-eastern city began a movement that would circle the globe and leave its mark on individuals and cultures on every continent. This movement would eventually become known as The Church. The church is a movement. And it's still moving!
Life can be overwhelming at times… with bills, deadlines, financial pressure, family issues, marriage problems, school or job pressure and the list goes on! Jesus said, “Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.” Our world needs hope and Jesus is… Hope For Humanity!
Discipline is the personal trainer of lasting value. We will never actually accomplish anything of lasting value without discipline. Friendships don’t just happen. Personal growth doesn’t just happen. Spiritual growth doesn’t just happen. Join us for this 5 week series as we explore… 10 Disciplines Of A True Disciple.
Water Baptism is one of the most exciting sacraments of the modern day church! Join us over the next two weeks as we discover why we should be baptized and why we should not be baptized. Journey with us and let’s go… #DownToTheRiver!
Easter is a time to focus on the life, death, burial, resurrection and ascension of Jesus! We know this but sometimes our culture still gets distracted by Easter eggs, the Easter Bunny, family get togethers, Easter egg hunts, taking pictures so we remember, and the list goes on. We need to be constantly reminded what the Easter Season is really all about… JESUS! His life, His death, His burial, His resurrection and His ascension to the right hand of God! We need constantly reminded, #BloodMatters!
Series: #March Madness
From 1952-1970, there was a TV show called, “Kids say the darndest things.” In a nutshell, it was about crazy things that come from the mouths of children. Jesus said some crazy things while He walked and taught on this earth! During this series we will look at some statements Jesus made that are difficult to understand, hard to swallow and may even sound like madness. We will discover the truth in God’s word, in spite of our cultural biases. Join us this March for #MarchMadness!

Join us as we #Flourish and become the world changers God has called us to be!
In January, people are notorious for making New Year’s Resolutions. We love the idea that the New Year can be an opportunity to wipe the slate clean and start over. We vow to lose weight, read the Bible more, workout, pray more, laugh more, hug more, spend more time with our family, get out of debt, give more, work less, work more, get back to church… and the list goes on. The truth is 50% of resolution-makers fail by the end of January and 9 out of 10 quit by March. Not a very good track record. One solution is to strip it all away and boil it down to one key word for the upcoming year. Join us as we throw out the resolutions and chose “one word” that will bring focus and purpose for every area of our lives. Join us for... Small Things, Big Difference. #STBD2017
Christmas represents many different things to people in our modern culture. For some it’s filled with family, friends, fun, gifts, excitement and joy. While others face loneliness, isolation, conflict, doubt, fear, ridicule and bitterness. Join us as we look into the lives of four people who felt the full scope of all these emotions. We will be looking into the lives and thoughts of Zechariah, Mary, Joseph and Jesus. Join us as we unfold the splendor of #ChristmasStory.
Have you ever felt stuck in a rut or routine? Perhaps you have felt trapped by bills, addiction or maybe some bad habit. Join us as we dig into a three week series called Freedom. We will explore ways to break free from old life patterns, stinky thoughts and bad habits. Journey with us as we take back our #Freedom!
What should the local church look like? The local church should look like people not a place; she should look like people not perfection. To be practical, she should be people who serve the community. People of influence. People with deep, close relationships. People who accept others who are not like them. People who are encouraging to those around them. People who disciple people to Jesus, who disciple other people to Jesus. The local church should be people who are extravagant givers and passionate about leading others to be extravagant givers. People who blow it and know how to say, “I’m sorry.” People who step out and try even if they don’t know what to do or how to do it. Join us as our pastor speaks vision to our community and our world… Join us for #TheChurchISee!
We live in a culture where new is god. We want it now and we want it new... new car, new house, new clothes, new job and the list goes on. The problem is, after a while the new wears off and then we want something else new! But what if new never got old? What if new wasn't something temporal but something eternal? What if new was something God was doing in your heart every morning of every day? During this series we will look at the idea of living new! Living as a new person with new priorities, new purpose and new praise. Journey with us as we explore... #New.
Believe your big risks will be rewarded. Believe what you ask for is possible. If you’re ready to see a spark in your life, pray boldly. Pray daringly. Pray with fire. Pray dangerously! During this #DangerousPrayer series we will learn to stop "playing it safe" and start asking God to radically transform our lives so we can radically transform our world!
Temptation is the seductive little voice that twists what you want into what you think you need. It distorts your thoughts until you feel trapped—and when you feel trapped by temptation, it feels like you'll never break free. Learn to put your trust in someone who will always show you a way out. Jesus is always with us, giving us overwhelming victory! We won’t try to manage temptation, but eliminate it. We will attack temptation from a positive perspective by focusing on living by the Spirit.
Thank you for joining #RealMen. During this three-week series we will explore some characteristics of Biblical men who exemplified Godly character. We will see true examples of men who loved and expressed that love in practical, real life ways. We will learn how real men listen to the voice of God and also Godly counsel. We will then look at the leadership of someone who was one of the greatest leaders in Biblical history. Commit to the next three week as we learn what it means to be... #RealMen!
Thank you for joining us for our series called #Relentless. Over the next few weeks we will explore three areas of life Jesus is relentless about... forgiveness, communion and service! During this series we will learn how to forgive in a way that really magnifies Jesus. We will discover the value of great friendships and how those relationships magnify Jesus. Lastly, we will dive into serving people around us and discover when we do, our lives are transformed in the process. What a great way to truly magnify Jesus!
Stand-alone Message: #Mothersday2016
Thank you for joining us for #MothersDay2016. This day always reminds us what an honor it is to bless the wonderful women who give their all to invest into their children. Raising children is one of the greatest privileges and challenges of any parent. As parents, we have to work hard to build a Christ-centered home and not a child-centered home, because a child-centered home produces self-centered adults. This message will explore a few principles from God's word on raising our children to be genuine disciple-makers!
During this three week series we will take a close look at Jesus and some of His final days on this earth. What was happening? How did He suffer? What was going on in the mind and heart of Jesus? What was He feeling? What does the Resurrection of Jesus mean for me today? We will dive into all of these questions and more as we explore #JesusMessiah!
Guest Speaker: Ron Brening
Our one word for The Journey Church this year is magnify. The Psalmist David said, "Oh, magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt His name together." Jesus, while He was here on earth said, “When I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself.” We want this to be our heart beat and focus. Our deepest desire is to magnify Jesus with everything we think and do. During this four week series we will focus on our vision of "Love God, Grow Together & Serve People" through the lens of our one word, magnify.
Guest Speaker: Ron Brening
Lose the long list of Resolutions--all your sweeping promises to change--and do something about one thing this year instead nothing about everything! During this series you will learn to choose just one word that represents what you most hope God will do in you, and focus in it for the entire year. As you focus on your word over an extended period of time, you position yourself for God to form your character at a deep, sustainable level. Growth and change will result!
Series: Come to Worship
Everything changed in a moment! When Jesus was born, He made a way for us to be known, accepted, and forgiven. When we experience His love and live in relationship with Him, we can’t help but Come To Worship. This four-week Christmas series teaches four Biblical expressions to worship God including lifting your hands, bringing your gifts, pouring our your hearts, and bowing before Him.
Series : Simply Jesus
Let’s face it; life gets busy, hectic, rushed, cluttered & crazy. Have you ever thought, “I’m done, stop the world and let me off”? There are times in our lives when we need to slow down, be quiet and just focus on things that really mater. Over the next four weeks we will simplify, and get the clutter out, remove the noise, and simply focus on Jesus… Simply Jesus.
