Ravi is one of the great Christian thinkers and communicators of our time. Watch this 11 minute video as he responds to this question: “How do you respond to nonbelievers who accuse Christians of being hateful to people who support lifestyles of people that are not according to the precepts of our faith?”
Pastor Mitch Majeski (a dear friend of Brent Knox) offers a brilliant examination of Romans 1:24-32. This passage is an equal-opportunity offender for the licentious and the legalist. Pastor Mitch answers questions about homosexuality with the truth and compassion of the gospel, which gives hope to how we respond to this issue — for both Christians and those struggling with same-sex attraction.
“Building Convictions” is a set of videos featuring Herschel Martindale. With more than 50 years of experience founding national and international churches and training ministry leaders, Herschel brings a depth of teaching mixed with practical application. Herschel presents fifty different convictions that ought to be embedded into every Christian’s life. “Building Convictions” is like systematic theology on a very practical and understandable level, aimed to changed lives. Video lengths vary from 18-30 minutes.
Have you wondered what Evergreen's position is on certain spiritual gifts like hearing from God, prophecy, miracles, healing and speaking in tongues? Christians have varying beliefs on these important topics. It is our belief that we can worship gladly together even though there may be differing views on these topics in our church. This is a four-week seminar with questions and answers.
Jesus both loved and judged rightly. He forgave the prostitute, yet told her, “Go, and sin no more.” This world needs representatives of Jesus who also have deep convictions, yet display great compassion. How can we stand for what is right, yet have our convictions flow from compassion? This message series touches on the explosive issues like tolerance, government, the definition of marriage, homosexuality, abortion, etc.
