Bible Text: John 1:3-4; 1 John 4:18 | Speaker: Steven Bill | Series: Freedom from... The gospel gives us freedom from being afraid of what might happen. Love is always the right motivator - not fear.

Bible Text: Acts 10:25-28, 34-35; Galatians 2:10-12 | Speaker: Steven Bill | Series: Freedom from... The saying "A tiger never changes its stripes" must be rejected - especially by Christians who believe in new creation. We were designed for change but that change can happen in reaction to the world around us, or intentionally in response to the gospel. When it's the latter, we find ourselves growing into these new creations we're called to be. However, sometimes that transformation is hard to see. Through looking at the life of Peter, we see that change doesn't happen overnight - but through grace, each time we fall we get up and move a little closer toward who God wants us to become.
Bible Text: Ephesians 6:10-16 | Speaker: Rob Freeman | Series: Freedom from... Doubt is a very real part of our faith. So how do we handle it in light of the gospel?

It’s easy to get caught up in ourselves and to even consider ourselves to be better or more deserving than someone else.

God gives us all gifts and talents, and we can boast of all we have done, but these things are all gifts from God and He deserves the credit.
Bible Text: Hebrews 10:1-3, 10, 14 | Speaker: Steven Bill | Series: Freedom from... As we explore the idea of freedom in the gospel, perhaps one of the most pronounced aspects we're freed from is the idea of guilt or conviction. It sounds beautiful to speak about but the reality is most, if not all of us, still deal with guilt. Often. So what gives?
Bible Text: Ephesians 2:19-20, Galatians 3 | Speaker: Glenn Edwards | Series: Freedom from... How do we reconcile the issues of being Canadian and being a Christian at the same time? Where does our primary allegiance lie? Are we Christians who live in Canada or Canadians who happen to be Christian?
Bible Text: 2 Corinthians 1:8-11; 4:8-11 | Speaker: Carolyn Whatley | Series: Freedom from... How does the gospel provide freedom from despair? The answer lies in understanding that our God experiences suffering right along with us, and through understanding this we can begin to experience healing.
Bible Text: Matthew 6 | Speaker: Steven Bill | Series: Freedom from... What does it mean to seek God's kingdom first? It means we don't have to worry about our kingdoms.
Bible Text: Ephesians 4:7-8, 11 and 1 Peter | Speaker: Rob Freeman | Series: Freedom from... We all are hungry for meaning - and the gospel provides us the ultimate purpose. Rob unpacks just how happens.
Bible Text: Exodus 1, Luke 4 | Speaker: Steven Bill | Series: Freedom from... The gospel provides us freedom. But what does that mean?
