Dear King's Cross, This past Easter Sunday we saw Jesus open scripture and claim that all of it points to him. In other words, if we truly want to know God and have a relationship that brings life abundant--we need to find him throughout the whole of scripture.  We'd like to invite you to go …

The Bible says we need to fight sin to its death. “In your struggle against sin you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood.” (Hebrews 12:4, ESV) How am I going to be able to fight to the point of shedding blood and break the sinful pattern of anger?

February 14, 2017 / Ester Linton

I was once told that my life was like the movie Failure to Launch; that like the main character, I had failed to become a “real” adult.
