If you are new here, thank you for joining us today! We would love to answer any questions you have about our church community, or the Christian faith.  Rather watch?

Today we finish a series of messages about the daily rhythms of Jesus. We believe that Jesus not only came as our Savior, He came as our example as well. When you look at how Jesus lived, you find that there were certain practices that he made sure to do consistently: prayer, serving, resting, giving, and more. In this series we are not simply going to explain these practices, but equip you to integrate them into your own life, because we believe they can be life-giving for you too. Rather watch?

The Way of Kings 5: Kings Die, Jesus Lives (Christmas 2021)
The Way of Kings 5: Kings Die, Jesus Lives (Christmas 2021)
The Old Testament tells a tragic story of kings gone wrong: how they took more than they gave, how they desperately clung to power, and how they ultimately ran the nation of Israel into the ground. The good news is that the story doesn’t end there. 2,000 years ago Jesus came as Messiah—which means king. And unlike all the other kings before Him, He ruled with humility, selflessness, love, and justice. Join us as we compare the way of kings, with the way of the King.

How old is the earth? The universe? How did the first life begin? Where did humans come from?

Though we disagree about how God chose to create, we all agree that He is the ultimate reason that there is something rather than nothing.

The Heroes of the Rest of the Story (of Acts)
The last month and a half we have been studying Acts 2 and seeking to understand what it means for how we operate as a church. We have looked at the traits that every church should strive for, and, by extension, every Christian. But this brings up a secondary question: besides these characteristics, what else are believers to strive for? In this message we are looking at the heroes of the rest of the story of the book of Acts. Let's strive together to adopt these characteristics.   You can also watch the entire worship service in which this message was offered.  For more info about our church community, or to connect with us, go to www.creekside.cc
