Uncomfortable Obedience by Dr. Abidan Shah (2021)

There are many things that God commands us to do that we can do with a joyful and a willing heart. For example: studying his word, loving our family and children, and using our gifts in his service. But then, there are things that He commands us to do that are not as fun and exciting. They are uncomfortable. They push us past our limits. Sometimes, they are downright unbearable. How do we obey God even when it is uncomfortable?

Greater than Religion by Dr. Abidan Shah

Greater Than Rome

This weekend, we are beginning a brand new series focused on Christmas, titled “GREATER.” Through this series, we will focus on the society and political structure during the time of Jesus’ birth.

Royal – Our Creator King by Pastor Abidan Shah

This year, we are starting a series called “ROYAL” to help us understand not only what Christmas is all about, but the deep theology behind the kingship of Jesus. There is so much in Scripture that points to Christ as the one true King.  This series will help us understand the prophecies that heralded Jesus as the promised King as well as keeping our minds focused on Him as we head toward December 25.

Fulfilled: Manner of Jesus’ Birth by Pastor Abidan Shah

This is the third message in our series, focusing on the manner of Jesus’ birth. Many people today will claim to be Christians, but denounce the virginal conception. This is critical to our faith, though, as it not only proves Jesus is the Son of God but that He is the One promised from the Old Testament. It sets Him apart from any other religion or deity that promises salvation.
