Everyone has religious doubts. Certain things about God are unsettling. Our circumstances can make God seem distant or vengeful. Science can make God seem unnecessary. Those doubts can cause us to abandon faith. But maybe our perspectives are wrong. Maybe the gods we abandon never existed to begin with.…
 
More Americans than ever are backing away from religion . . . and God. Not because atheism is attractive, but because religion is unattractive. Religion is seen as the problem. It’s thought of as a source of conflict and violence. So, it’s worth asking the question: Who Needs God?על ידי Inland Hills Church
 
We’re supposed to share the gospel of Jesus. But how do we do that? Is it all up to us individually or do we get graded as a group project? If I really, really want my friends to follow Jesus, is there something I can do to help that along? Great questions. Let’s think through some answers together.על ידי Inland Hills Church
 
Having looked at partial gospels as being unsatisfying, we turn to secular narratives — beliefs about reality that most cultural institutions hold as truth — and find that they are ultimately unsatisfying as well. What we need isn’t a partial gospel or an unsatisfying cultural narrative. What we need is Jesus and the gospel he proclaimed. And it’s …
 
When we think about inviting other people to participate in faith, we need to ask: what specifically are we inviting them into? We are surrounded by competing gospels. In week one, we’ll describe five different gospels versions that are often taught in the United States: 1) the evangelical gospel 2) the reformed gospel 3) the social justice gospel …
 
Community can be beautiful, but it’s also messy. How do we bring our whole selves into a group of people? Our strengths, our weaknesses, our doubts, our certainties: these are some of the elements that make up who we are. How do we trust that other people can handle all of that, and how are we able to handle all that others may bring? What does com…
 
Great community and friendships appear to be all win: who doesn’t want a group of people to be known and loved by? But a fuller understanding of community recognizes something more: community requires sacrifice. If we truly are better together, how will we have to reorient our lives, our time, and our ideologies in order to build the community that…
 
We weren’t built to live life alone. We’re social creatures who flourish most when we are together: celebrat-ing, eating, partying — together. But also: struggling, mourning, questioning — together. Our challenge is that building true community around us is both necessary and difficult. How can we live our lives and engage with other people in such…
 
The Scriptures speak constantly of human flourishing: it’s God’s desire that we live well and connect well relationally with him and with others. But what happens when we don’t? The Old Testament book of Daniel contains multiple stories that point to a singular point: human beings lose their humanity when they don’t connect with God. Tragedy occurs…
 
There’s a fascinating story in the Hebrew Scriptures about idolatry: what happens when we take a good thing and make it an ultimate thing. An entire nation is coerced into bowing down to a golden image that represents the empire and the king, but three young men choose to resist. What kind of faith does it take to go against the flow? To be surroun…
 
Life is full of suffering, pain, and disappointments. Rearing kids is hard; work is hard; aging, sickness, and death are hard. The Hebrew Bible tells the story of Daniel and of the great disappointments and challenges (even threats to his life!) that he faced.Daniel’s story teaches us that our greatest struggles can lead to our greatest breakthroug…
 
It is not an easy thing to own our past and move toward something better. It takes courage to lead and influence people who have seen both our triumphs and our failures. The Gospels contain a peculiar story that has far-reaching implications for us today: what do you do when Jesus asks you to influence the very people who have seen you at your wors…
 
Most of us are raised to be "brave," but only in a way that doesn’t involve risking rejection or failure. This can lead us to avoid anything resembling vulnerability, which involves uncertainty, risk, and emotional exposure. But the life of King David has a lesson for us: it is only in opening ourselves up to God that he can lead us to new heights.…
 
“In this world,” Jesus tells us, “you will have trouble.” We will all walk through pain, suffering and loss. It will make us bitter, or it will make us better. How is it that our character can be forged in the crucible of conflict? The Hebrew Scriptures contain the story of Daniel: a man who was stolen away from his home country at an early age and…
 
You want to make a difference in the world, but it feels like the ever-consuming hustle of life just keeps getting in the way. The Hebrew scriptures contain the story of a man named Nehemiah, who became laser focused on a single task: rebuilding the walls around the city of Jerusalem. To accomplish his task, he overcame obstacles familiar to all of…
 
We looked at the Apostle Peter this week as one of the Bible characters who exemplifies the importance of “The Leader Within You.” If you’re looking to influence others, it’s pretty helpful to start with an understanding of “self leadership.” How are you leading your life in a way that models honesty, determination, and a sense of your unique purpo…
 
There’s a massive conversation in our culture around masculinity: what does it mean to be manly? How are we raising boys to become “good” men? What role(s) should men play in our society? Are some forms of masculinity as we’ve traditionally defined them actually harmful? And if I define myself as a follower of Jesus, what does my allegiance to Chri…
 
What’s your role in God’s plan? It’s one thing to consume a religious product... But it’s life changing to contribute to a team that’s making a difference. To be part of the Church is to be part of the team of people Jesus has assembled to impact the world!על ידי Inland Hills Church
 
We all want to be part of something bigger than ourselves; to make a difference in the world around us. If you’re a follower of Jesus, YOU hold the answers to the biggest questions the world is asking. And as part of a church, we can be on mission together to share the Gospel with the Chino valley in ways that none of us can do on our own.⁠…
 
Scriptures remind us that anger is not inherently a problem, and it can even be helpful in some cases. As followers of Jesus, how can we respond to our anger in a way that demonstrates our desire to be more like Jesus in what we say, and do, and think?על ידי Inland Hills Church
 
There has been a dramatic uptick in feelings of anxiety over the past decade, especially amongst young adults. While some anxiety levels can be extreme and are best resolved through professional therapy, Jesus modeled a way of living that can help break the cycle of worry and fear that drives much of our anxiety.…
 
Many of us have experienced a sense of tiredness - of “languishing” - this past year. Maybe you’ve found yourself saying, “I can’t even…” when you think about facing one more challenge, one more disappointment, or one more monotonous day. Take heart! You’re not alone, and this week’s message encouraged us to consider how we can model our response b…
 
We all face expectations, and we may even feel like we’re managing the needs of our families, workplaces, and friends pretty well. But what does it look like to find a renewed purpose and vulnerability as we respond to Jesus’ invitation to live differently?על ידי Inland Hills Church
 
Many parents have been led to believe that creating a godly home environment will guarantee their kids grow up to be faithful followers of Jesus. But, while training up our children in the way of Jesus is undoubtedly a worthy goal, the Scriptures never guarantee our faithfulness will result in a particular outcome.…
 
When it comes time to make a major decision, many of us experience a heightened interest in discovering God’s will. “If God has a blueprint for my life, how am I supposed to determine what that is?” we may wonder. Join us tomorrow to see what Scripture teaches about God’s plan & purpose for your life.…
 
Well-meaning friends, and even pop-culture, sometimes offer comfort in tough times with the old adage, “Everything happens for a reason”... but have you ever thought about how that saying comes up short when measured against Scripture and what we know of the goodness of God? What would it look like to challenge that notion, and perhaps replace it w…
 
Associate Students Pastor Greg Morton took us back to the Old Testament this week to see how from the very beginning of His relationship with the Israelite people, God’s plan was to share his love with everyone. The bottom line for our lives as modern day Jesus followers? “How we love and include others is a direct representation of how we worship …
 
What new thing is God doing in your life? The Apostle Peter serves as an example of how sometimes we wrestle with reclaiming the old, while embracing the new. IHC’s 30th Anniversary gave us an opportunity to look back on God’s faithfulness, and to celebrate the ways He’s inviting us forward as a faith community.…
 
Despite some of the ways pop culture or even religious traditions have encouraged us to understand it, the book of Revelation was written to encourage persecuted Christians that regardless of what the scoreboard might currently say, God will win in the end. This message of hope is for us, too - that God will renew, restore, and reconcile all things…
 
The latest New Year, New Testament message from 1 Peter reminded us that our present suffering pales in comparison to the “wonderful joy” we have ahead of us. Pastor Tim Celek’s message provided some much-needed encouragement for whatever challenges you’re facing - or about to face - this week.על ידי Inland Hills Church
 
“Faith is not certainty, and faith does not speak the language of definitives.” But the author of Hebrews reminds us of a long history of those who have gone before us as examples of faithfulness. Their stories remind us that when we fix our eyes on Jesus, we can run the race set before us with renewed courage and strength!…
 
If you’ve ever found yourself thinking something like, “At least I’m not as bad as * those * people!” you might be on a slippery slope toward becoming an “Accidental Pharisee.” What are some common pitfalls, and how can we be mindful to avoid them?!⁠⁠על ידי Inland Hills Church
 
If you're reading along with our New Year, New Testament challenge, you've probably had some questions along the way! Hear from Pastor Josh as he unpacks a few biggies we've encountered: "What is predestination?" "Does God save or condemn arbitrarily?" "Can I lose my salvation?"על ידי Inland Hills Church
 
New Year, New Testament | Part 1 | Josh Crain “Why should you read the Bible?” If you want to understand God, you’ve got to understand Jesus, and Jesus himself points us to the authority of scripture as an important way to understand the freeing grace God has for each of us.על ידי Inland Hills Church
