HOSTAGE

When the world around us is spinning out of control and uncertainty is at every turn, it's easy to lose stability and become trapped by things like depression, anxiety, and stress. Most of us walk around with little sleep, shortness of breath, and threats of fear that dominate our every thought.

THE RIP

Along shorelines, there is a current called "the rip." It flows away from the shore toward the ocean. You could be caught in "the rip." A current that pulls you away from your faith and the things of God.

THE TEN

Like the ancient Israelites, God's people today often receive the gift of freedom but remain enslaved to sin. They see God as having a long list of rules to live by that only limit fun and take away freedom. God doesn't want to limit freedom, He creates freedom.

NO PERFECT FAMILY

Whether you realize it or not, all of us are affected by our homes. Family affects us in ways like nothing else—No one can love you like your family, and no one can hurt you like your family. Family dynamics are complicated. Marriage is messy. Parenting is difficult. Relationships within a family are frustrating and sometimes, destructive.

NOW

Who do you want to become? A loyal friend? A great parent? A loving and supportive spouse? Someone who loves and follows Jesus? Whoever it is, it begins now. We are notorious for putting things off, procrastinating and saying, “I’ll wait until later.” The problem is, later never comes. Now is the time! It’s a New Year with new opportunities. In this series, you'll be inspired and led by God to live NOW for the life you want LATER.

HOPE IS WITH US

It's the most wonderful time of the year. Yet that might not be the way you feel. It could be one of the most painful times of the year for you. Or one of the most loneliest times of the year. At The LIFT, we want you to know that you're not alone. There is still hope to be found this Christmas. That's why we are excited about our series, Hope Is With Us. This series is designed to welcome those who are hurting, lonely, or feeling anxious. It will provide an inspirational reminder of the impact of Christ's birth.

EXPECT MORE

Many people get their profession confused with their purpose. They want to be needed and to be known. They want to have purpose and make a difference, but are confused about how to find it, and end up settling for less than God’s best. This series is an invitation for us to understand and live our purpose. We are here to be difference makers. Instead of settling for less, we should EXPECT MORE.

DECLARE HOPE

God is faithful. He is still in control. We don’t have to worry about what will happen to us because our God is with us.

DISRUPTED

There is no doubt that COVID-19 has disrupted most everything in our lives. So, as followers of Jesus how do we handle disruptions? In this series we are looking at the life of Joshua and how he handled disruptions.

LET'S TALK

As our culture becomes more divided over racial issues, we as the church of Jesus Christ are called to unify. And this starts with us. Government is not the answer. The Church is the answer! In a this series called, “Let’s Talk,” we face the problem of racism head-on and the responsibility we have as followers of Jesus. We believe racism must be revealed and repented of before healing can happen. With God’s help, we will be known for supernatural unity in the midst of diversity.

DANGEROUS PRAYERS

It's all about being bold. When you pray, do you go boldly to God asking for powerful things to happen or do you play it safe? In this message, Pastor Lance will talk about what it looks like to pray bold prayers and what to expect when we do. We are believing that God is going to stretch and strengthen your faith as you watch this service.

BE POSITIVE

When it seems like people are looking for reasons to be negative, you can be different and we can help you find out how! Don't let life get you down. Negativity is the easy choice, but it's not the best choice. If you seek what's good, you'll see what's good. As followers of Jesus, let's Be Positive!

CHOSEN

We are going to face struggles. We will have opposition. Trials and even persecution will be part of our lives. But, just because everything around us is falling apart doesn’t mean we have to fall apart on the inside. We are chosen to show the goodness and greatness of God. As the world grows darker, the light of Jesus shines brighter. In this series, Chosen, we will look at the book of 1 Peter. We’ll see where God is constantly refining our character and defining our calling. We’ve been set apart, made to be different, to stand out in this dark world.

SERMON ARCHIVE:

Give Thanks, Week One

Give Thanks, Week One

This message is titled, "It's God's Idea For Your Life." We've heard this before, "Give thanks no matter the circumstances." That makes for a great saying, but it's not always easy to do. It's easier and more natural for us to be preoccupied only with ourselves and grapple with being ungrateful. Nothing turns us into bitter, selfish, and discontent people more quickly than an ungrateful heart.

Re-Place Your Fear

Re-Place Your Fear

That’s what Pastor Justin Kenley, High School Pastor of FBCIT, talks about in this sermon. So, who do you know that's fighting fear? Why not send this message to them? You never know the difference that can make in a person's life.

Recovering The Lost

Recovering The Lost

Have you ever followed someone or something and had no idea where they were going? That's how many of us follow Jesus. He calls us to follow Him, but we don't know where He's going. Jesus was always moving in the direction of the lost. That was His mission, and His mission is our mission. Every day we're given chances to make a difference in the lives of people who don't know Him. In this sermon, Pastor Lance will use three parables Jesus told to help us understand where He is going. We'll see what it means to follow Jesus indeed. If we are serious about following Him, we will want to go where He goes.

The Encouragement of His Presence

The Encouragement of His Presence

Unmet needs. We've all got them. Sometimes the space between our cry for help and the answer can be maddening. We feel clueless. But it's in those moments that Jesus makes Himself known. We discover He's leading us to know Him more deeply than ever before. In this sermon, special guest David Edwards will encourage you to move from being clued out to being clued into the presence of Jesus. Finding the faithfulness of God in the middle of worry is possible. We can take our unmet needs and place them into the hands of Jesus.

Encourage Me

Encourage Me

The world is on fire. Cities are burning, and storefronts are smashed. Families are broken. We are beset on every side. All of what we see are outward signs of what’s happening inside the soul. It’s enough to drain the courage right out of you. That’s the definition of discouragement. Now more than ever, we need a fresh word of encouragement for the things that discourage us. This message from our special guest, David Edwards, is no touchy, freely positive mental attitude advice. This sermon provides a biblical pathway and application on tapping into the encouraging presence of God.

Start Believing

Start Believing

Do you believe in God and the power of prayer, but you don't pray often enough? Maybe you believe in God, and you pray often, but nothing is happening. Sometimes you wonder if God hears your prayers? You've prayed for your marriage to get stronger, and instead, it's as weak as it's ever been. You're asking God to bring back your wayward child, and they're still running. Someone you love is very sick; you're praying for healing, and there's no change. It could be that cancer didn't get better, or the surgery didn't work, and they lost their lives.

We Need Each Other

We Need Each Other

In this sermon, Pastor Lance gives us three of the most important reasons we need each other. No one is meant to do life alone. The church and Christian community are vitally important. Also, there's a message bonus. Find out how Pastor Lance prays for us, the church and how you can do the same. You are not to be the only one praying for yourself. He also closes the sermon with a special prayer for us, the church.

Teach Them To Depend On God

Teach Them To Depend On God

So, what should our goal be as parents? In this message, Pastor Lance will teach us two principles that can help intentionally lead our parenting towards being God-centered. Your parenting is a result of what you've created or what you've tolerated. Let's stop tolerating and start creating. Healthy families don't happen by accident. They are created on purpose.

God Wants To Encourage You

God Wants To Encourage You

s followers of Jesus, we need the church, and we need Christian community. In this sermon, Pastor Lance will help us see why it is essential. You don't have to live life alone! Do whatever it takes to stay connected to the church and get locked into Christian community. You're not meant to walk alone.

Make Your Faith Great

Make Your Faith Great

Faith is a big deal, especially when you're starting back to school, going off to college, making a career change, raising a family, or anything else for that matter.

Everyone Is a Leader

Everyone Is a Leader

You see, Jesus didn't come just to save you from something. He saved you for something! He has a mission, and His church and His people are part of that mission. You have a purpose. You have meaning. You can have direction in life. Wow, what a gift! In this sermon, Pastor Lance talks about how to steward this gift to impact the world.

Guest Speaker: The Real Jesus

Guest Speaker: The Real Jesus

In this week's message, our Online Director, Juan Molina, walks us through John 4. In John 4, we see a picture of Jesus; A Jesus that is willing to be with unclean and broken people. A Jesus that is willing to cross any barrier to reach our hearts. One interaction and conversation with Jesus changed a Samaritan woman's life forever. Whether you're hungry or hurt, lonely or lost, one encounter with Jesus can change your life as well. We hope and pray you enjoyed this service and sermon.

Guest Speaker: Great Faith

Guest Speaker: Great Faith

This sermon reminds us that all the faith we need in our lives and our relationship with Jesus is already inside us. God puts us in circumstances that excavate that faith to deepen and grow our relationship with Him. Guest speaker Dave Edwards encourages and challenges us in this sermon titled "Great Faith" to put our faith to the test to help us become better disciples of Jesus.

God With Us

God With Us

What would every other relationship in your life look like if it was given the same amount of time you give God? Your marriage, if you only saw each other for an hour and half each week? Your relationship with your kids, if you claimed them and loved them in certain circles and situations, but lived liked they didn’t even exist to you in others? Your relationships would fail! Our relationship with God is no different.

Guilt, Let It Go!

Guilt, Let It Go!

When guilt won't go away, life can be overwhelming and feel hopeless. But the good news is Jesus can change it all! When He died on the cross and rose again, He didn't just defeat death–He extended Grace! For those who battle guilt from the decisions of the past, If you have confessed them to Jesus, It is forgiven! It's time to let it go!

I'm Hurting, Please Help Me

I'm Hurting, Please Help Me

A lot of people think they can put anything into their life and still get the results they desire but that's just not true. What we put into our lives is what will come out of our lives. Think about what has been put into our lives over the last year; fear, anxiety, stress, separation, isolation, anger, rage, uncertainty, just to name a few. Those things can cause tremendous hurt and pain. If people were honest they would admit to having more hurt and needing more help than ever before.

Your Roots Can Grow

Your Roots Can Grow

When our roots grow down into Jesus and we build our lives on Jesus, everything around us will fall into place. Scripture says, our faith will grow strong. So, how do you know when your roots are growing deeper? In this message, Pastor Lance talks about having a root system strong enough to withstand the strongest of storms. No matter where you are in your walk with Jesus, your roots can grow! Together, let’s learn what it looks like when our roots are growing and be reminded that Jesus is greater than any challenge we might be facing.
