How do You Feel about Getting Carried Away?

Most Western Christians have an aversion to the supernatural power of God. Much of the time when God touches us through His Holy Spirit, it impacts us emotionally. This should not be a surprise to us because we received our emotional nature from Him. We are made in His image and He is an emotional […]

What is Our Identity?

Sin is not the bad things that we do but the deep desire within all of us to be independent from God – to be our own bosses. Man started out as children of God in the Garden of Eden . Through stepping away from God as Lord and Father man became […]

Enlarge my Territory

​​The following post is a collection of excerpts from Mark’s sermon. Listen to the podcast for the full sermon.

The Bible says that Jabez was an honorable man and from this we can deduce that his prayer for blessing and an enlarged territory was not a selfish prayer. He was asking for blessing in order to […]

If Christians are supposed to look like Jesus will they all look the same?

The kingdom of God starts with a spiritual reality. Whether you believe in Him or not, He is present around you. He is in this world waiting for you to interact with Him, here and now. When you enter into the kingdom of God a spiritual change happens and you begin to comprehend things that were […]

Up Close and Personal With God

We are told that we need to “know” God but rarely are we told HOW to know God. We are told that God wants an intimate relationship of love with us but we are not told what our part is or how to do it.

Join Mark on Thursday nights from 6:30-8:30 pm; Jan 22, Feb […]

New Book – Reluctantly Supernatural – coming soon

Science has failed to answer our deepest questions concerning the purpose and significance of human life. As a result, our culture is turning to the supernatural realm for the answers.

The Bible is literally filled with the supernatural power of God intervening into human affairs. Not only does God act supernaturally into the lives of His […]

Serving Truth after its Expiry Date Part 2

Not only has the game changed but two very destructive lies have been injected into the game.
Our culture has accepted two huge lies. The first is that if you disagree with someone’s lifestyle, you must fear or hate them. The second is that to love someone means you must agree with everything they believe or […]

Serving Truth After It’s Expiration Date

As Christians we are to be a truth telling people. We believe in capital “T” truth. We believe that just as there are God designed laws that govern the physical world there are God designed laws that govern the moral world. We believe that there are absolutes that govern moral choices and that these do […]

What did Jesus do with demons?

This is part two of Deliver us from Evil – see Part 1

And this brings us to the central difference between authority and religion.

Jesus began his role as teacher by teaching about the Kingdom of God but he didn’t stop at simply teaching about it. Jesus demonstrated the Kingdom of God by demonstrating His authority […]

What do we do about evil?

We had a very interesting video testimony scheduled for last Sunday about a family set free from years of negative spiritual activity in their home, referred to as “haunting”. I decided that I should take the opportunity to speak on the subject of our Christian authority over evil. There is a very illuminating incident in […]

Contrast between Religion and Grace

Recently Shell and I were down in Guadalajara doing a conference at a cutting edge church there. The conference was on training the church to recognize communication from God and how to share it effectively. I was ready to teach Sunday morning but I knew I had a prophetic word for the church. I thought […]

Why the Law?

If our faith is about a relationship rather than law, why does the law exist?

We were always intended by God to live life with our focus upon Him. He designed our operating system as an intimate relationship of love. Out of that relationship, we will be compelled by His love to do what pleases Him, […]

The Trouble with Truth

Let’s be honest, most of us aren’t.We all like to think of ourselves as basically honest people. We believe this because most of the time we don’t leave the house in the morning intending to lie our way through the day. Strangely, neither do we leave the house consciously intending to tell whole truth and […]

IS MEGA BETTA? Is big always God’s will?

Today, I suggest we kill a sacred cow. The sacred cow is,

“bigger is better.”

I planted the first church I pastored, and I did it as a church growth disciple. I began with what I took to be a foundational tenet of the church growth movement; “Your church will succeed or fail based on your leadership”. And success […]

What’s the Problem with Religion?

All religions are basically the same. A spiritual, material, eternal reward is offered and a system of behavior is required. When properly applied, the behavior brings the reward.

The rewards differ: Nirvana, 72 Virgins, Cosmic Consciousness, Heaven, etc.

As well, the system of behavior differs: prayer wheels, jihad, religious rituals, moral living, etc.  But the rewards and […]

How often do you feel like you are not winning at being a Christian?

Someone has asked me why, given all we know about our faith as a relationship with God rather than a works based religion, do we so easily fall back into a works based, religious orientation toward God. I think there are two basic reason for this.

The first is pride. Sadly, pride survives conversion. In a […]

Further thoughts on Slaves to Sonship

Avoiding the second stage. See post on this discussion.
For most of us our return to our true identity is a three stage journey; from slave, to servant, to son or daughter.

We start out as slaves to our own self focus. We call it sin but it is really just a deep commitment to independence from […]

We don’t, be He can.

So how do we change our identity from a merely conscientious servant to “successful son or daughter”?

The short answer is; we don’t, but He can. Listen to full sermon here.

Many times I have reminded you that sin is not the bad things that we do but the deep desire within all of us to […]
