Bridge the Gap, pt. 2

Our mission as followers of Jesus is to be "bridge builders", to share the Good News about Jesus, whose death on the cross bridged the gap between God and man. Having walked across that bridge ourselves and discovered the love of God, we have an obligation and an assignment to help others walk across the bridge, too.

Move Up, pt. 1: What is Stewardship?

Jesus taught a lot about money and stewardship.   15% of Jesus' teaching was on the subject of money and our possessions, more than all His teachings on Heaven and Hell combined. He spent so much time on the subject because He knew that the whole area of money and finances is a difficult area for people to obey God.  There are some powerful Kingdom principles about money that can and will alter your life and future.
