Evidence that Demands a Verdict

Do you have doubts about life after death and the resurrection?  For years, I doubted life after death.  At 18 years old, everything changed.  One of the things that changed my mind was examining the historical and archeological evidence regarding the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

From Mommy to Mom to Grandma: The Mess, The Madness, The Magnificence

Some little girls are rough and tumble, while some are gentle and meek. I was a rough and tumble, messy, and silly little girl who loved playing with her baby dolls. I loved them all. But I didn’t yet have a “Baby Tender Love” and was determined to have one. I was only 3 years old when I went to buy her. My friend Mindy was five, and we were playing together in the front yard. I decided that it was time to get the new doll and proceeded to take Mindy with me to the corner of the busy street behind our house. We lived off of Montgomery Boulevard here in Albuquerque, New Mexico and the neighborhood Piggly Wiggly was just across the busy street. Just before I walked across the street, Mindy informed me that she was not allowed to cross without her mommy. So, I ventured across the street by myself…

IF: Gathering 2018

Everything about IF: Gathering is evidence of God’s grace to me and the women of Albuquerque.  To have the opportunity to see women from different denominations, experiences, and cultures come together all in the name of Jesus and His mission is a beautiful thing to see!  I am privileged to get the chance to build relationships with other ministry leaders and pastors wives to make IF unique for Albuquerque.  We love how we can simulcast gifted authors and speakers from around the world, yet also incorporate local women to complement the conference by testimony, interviews, or panel conversations.

What are Redemption Groups?

“Stuck, I am just stuck…”, “I’ve tried accountability groups, I’ve tried 12 step programs, I’ve tried…”, “my hurt and shame just weigh on me, I just want to feel clean…”, “I have done awful things and I know God forgives, but I can’t forgive myself…”, “I continue to get involved in bad relationships and I can’t figure out how to stop…”, “I am angry, angry even at the ones I want to love…”, “I want to care about my family, but I don’t know where to start; there is just too much in the past to overcome…”.  Do you relate to any of these statements?  Have these thoughts been on your mind recently?  North Church offers Redemption Groups as a place to work through these issues.

Cross Centered Church

The church in the ancient city of Corinth had issues.  Infighting, immaturity, arrogance, extreme sexual immorality, litigation, idolatry, drunkenness and distorted doctrine just to name a few.  But in his first letter to this dysfunctional church, the Apostle Paul offers up a single solution.  He sums it up this way, “For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.”. (I Corinthians 2:2)

Experience Jesus' Redeeming Grace

A Redemption Group is a small group where participants experience the transforming love of God in life’s deepest areas of sin and suffering. Our God abounds in steadfast love towards us, and this is most clearly seen in the person and work of Jesus Christ. RG's are about personally knowing and experiencing Jesus' redeeming grace, truth, and love.

Why do baby dedications? - 3 Reasons we dedicated our boys.

There isn’t anything magical about a baby dedication. It doesn’t make the child a Christian (only Jesus can do that).  It’s actually more for the parents and the church.  This isn’t to try to secure the child a place in heaven, but it’s to set in the heart of the parents and church how the child should be raised. If it doesn’t save the child, why should you do a  baby dedication?

Three Reasons to Become a Member of Your Church

I believe many churchgoers miss out on the relational intimacy, spiritual growth, and increased joy that result from being intimately connected to God’s family - the church. When a Christian is content to be a guest at church, rather than a fully connected family member, they are cheating themselves relationally, spiritually, and emotionally.
