We are a church in Medina, OH living out a Kingdom Culture for our community to the ends of the earth. We invite you to join us to #seeJesusclearly. Sermons are recorded live during our weekly services.
How doe we deal with moments when God doesn't answer our prayer or meet us the way we had hoped or expected? If we are not careful, resentment and bitterness takes root and grows if we neglect addressing those disappointments. Our passage is from Psalm 13.
We all have a common idea of love. In this message I explore what that common idea is and try to point out that true love is best understood seeing the world as Jesus saw it rather than the way our culture sees it when it assumes that physical nature is all that exists.
What exactly does it mean to "walk in the Spirit"? It's more practical than you think, and I believe that if we could really understand the true meaning of this, our faith would be dramatically strengthened during this time of Pandemic. Because for the Christian, our war isn't only against COVID-19.
Join Pastor Mario as we discuss this battle in our hearts and the solution to overcoming temptations.

It's not an overstatement to say that 2020 is probably one of the hardest years for us as the modern Church.

Are you weary? Many are struggling during this very hard time we are living through as a nation, but also as a church. How do handle and navigate the disappointments and even frustrations we are experiencing?
Today, we look at a man who felt many of the same things we feel today. God meets this man in a special way, and I believe God wants to meet you in the same way today in the midst of the struggle and weariness.
If you enjoy these devotionals, I encourage you to share it! We want to reach as many people as we can for the Gospel. We appreciate all who take a listen every Wednesday. We pray you are encouraged by today's episode.
How exactly does the Gospel of Christ impact this place the Bible calls the heart?
Many times, I think most us live our Christian life thinking that God expects us to live His way in our strength. We may not say or even realize that, but I think that in order for us to understand how to walk in the ways of God, we must first understand how God forms His desires in our heart that motivate us to live in His ways.
He does this by the work of the Gospel. Join me as we look at how the Gospel has impacted and continues to shape our hearts.
If you like these Devotions or any of the content on our podcast, feel free to share it! We want as many people as possible to be encouraged in the Lord, especially during this tough season we are all in as the Church.
What does the Bible mean when it talks about "the heart"?
I think we would do well to understand our heart and become familiar with all of the ways it can be swayed and influenced. In doing so, we might actually find strength in our weaknesses through the grace of Jesus.
Have you recently wondered why teens seem to be struggling so much and seem to be going off into crazy trends that are potentially dangerous? What is the fascination with Tik Tok and trends such as "shifting"? How can we help the teens in our churches find true identity in Christ and disciple them towards reaching their friends?
This is a very important topic today if you are raising teens or if you have teens in your life. We have a responsibility to understand teens and the struggles they are going through.
Join Pastor Mario as we discuss some ways to encourage and speak life into the youth around us.
Have you ever wanted something and thought you could only find it in something that turned out to be false? Today, we look at a man who like many of us, have been discipled to find good things in idols.
Today, we look at the Leprous man of Luke 5:12-16. Often, we carry shame with us, even to church. Maybe that shame came from a sin we’ve been dealing with or simply as a result of a struggle. Our text today reveals Jesus’ heart for not only our physical sicknesses, but more importantly, our spiritual sickness.
We are currently living through a historical moment, something to which we have never experienced before. With that comes a lot of uncertainty, anxiousness, worry and fear. We can not make light the impact of this pandemic and the lives that it has taken.
But we must also remind ourselves of the God we serve and have chosen to follow: a God very close to the details of life and very much at work, even in trials. So, we must ask, what does Jesus want of His Church during this time?
What does faith actually mean and how does it relate to us in our present reality of brokenness in the world? During a time as such, we must have a Biblical foundation of real faith and what that looks like practically for us as we try to navigate a broken world.
What does it mean to be desperate for God? We all are undoubtedly experiencing a time of crisis and heightened worry and anxiety due to the recent Coronavirus, but for a believer, what should this create in us? How should we respond during times of trial? Pastor Matthew looks at Jonah 2:2-9 to glean some insight into God's word during this time.
