Rituals some times have negative connotations attached to them. Mainly because by them, we believe we can make our own way to God. But are these the type of rituals that God has implemented for us, so that we can do things to make God happy?  In his last sermon during the Why Jesus Hates Religion series, Pastor Kenton explores how this is not the case, but in reality, rituals are gifts from God because they point us back to him and call us to remembrance of how much He actually loves us.

For many of us, love has been experienced as conditional. If we perform well, we are loved well. If we mess up, we are loved less. But this is not how God loves us. Pastor Kenton explains for us that when we view our relationship with God in the sense of do’s and don’ts, we will never find God’s love the way He wants us to experience it. God loves us with an everlasting and unfailing love, a love that transforms, gives us identity, and freedom.

Jesus says that the two greatest commandments are to love God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength, and to love your neighbor as yourself. But just like the rich young ruler, we seem to always ask, “who is my neighbor?” In his sermon Won’t You Be My Neighbor, Pastor Kenton explores what Jesus is really trying to get across when he calls us to love our neighbors with compassion and care, even when we don’t always feel like it.

God’s heart is for those in need. And if God’s heart is for those need, should our hearts be the same? All of us were once spiritual orphans, completely lost, fatherless, and roaming through life on our own. But God loved us too much to leave us that way. When we realize that God loves us so much and is giving us every good and perfect gift, we can’t help but be grateful, filled with gratitude, and have this same love and care for others. In his sermon ‘Who Cares?’, Pastor Kenton explores the heart of God and his care for the needy, and how that same heart lives in us.

Jesus wants to carry your burdens. Not just some of them, but all of them. Join Pastor Kenton as he discusses how Jesus desires to be your rest, peace, and carrier of life’s biggest and even smallest challenges.

For many of us, there is a difference between who we say we are and who we really are.  Have you ever felt like this?  That you act one way in front of people, but know you are a completely different person on the inside?  Jesus wants to free us from the acting.  God wants us to change our audience and live wanting to please him.  Join Pastor Kenton as he talks about how our religious tendencies and acting always leaves us wanting more, but Christ the mender of our hearts can allow us to be free in him and who we really are.

What causes us to change the way we live our lives?  Is it simply altering our external actions, or is there something deeper that God wants to address? Religion is an outside-in approach, changing external behaviors to prove to God that we are good enough.  But Jesus wants us to recognize something else. If we allow God to change our hearts, then everything in our lives will ultimately change.  Join Pastor Kenton as we explore how God moves in our hearts first, far before he wants us to change our actions.

Religion makes us feel like we are in control of our relationship with God.  However, the gospel is such good news because all of our efforts and pursuits of trying to reach God are taken out of our control, and fulfilled through Jesus. This is why Jesus hates religion.  He has a greater plan for our lives than for us to attempt to measure up to his standard.  Join pastor Kenton as we explore living a lifestyle of religion versus finding freedom in the gospel.

Is life change experienced through constant attempts of trying make ourselves better? Or does God have a different plan? In this sermon, Pastor Kenton explores how we have no hope of changing ourselves, but it is only through Christ that our desires, outlook on life, and decisions truly begin to change for the better.
