  • Justin Brierley, host of the Unbelievable? podcast, tackles the question of natural evil - why does God allow earthquakes, tsunamis, plagues and viruses to exist?

    In case you missed them, be sure to check out other videos in this series, such as God and the Pandemic, featuring N.T. Wright and Francis Collins, and A Conversation: Where is God in a Coronavirus World? featuring John Lennox.

  • Eyewitness video narratives are Bible-based and are designed to spark your imagination and provoke your curiosity. Each video is 12-18 minutes long and addresses a portion of the Bible from the viewpoint of a Bible character. The videos and study guides provide a significant amount of historical, cultural, and chronological information that the original writers and hearers of the Bible knew, but are not well-known by most people today. 

    It is our hope that these videos will entice viewers to read and study the related Scriptures. For those who want to go deeper, we have provided study guides and application questions for the videos and related Scriptures.

    NEW: Paul's Letters, Part 16: Titus & Part 17: Second Timothy

  • The Word One to One is a guided read-through of John’s gospel, an eyewitness account of the life of Jesus. Each episode takes a small section of John’s gospel to read through verse by verse. The notes are designed to be read with a friend and contain all that you need to guide you through the gospel of John. This includes the passage, possible questions and notes which can serve as a framework for your conversation.

  • Race and reconciliation is a conversation that can be hostile and extremely polarizing. Emotions range from fear and frustration to fatigue and indifference—or even anger. But we are the Church, and God’s people are called to be peacemakers and ministers of reconciliation.

    Our vertical reconciliation to God should directly impact our horizontal relationship with one another. The Church possesses the ability to demonstrate this unity, but we can only live this out by the power of the Holy Spirit and through discipleship.

    In this 5-part series of discussions, we'll unpack each phase along the path toward true gospel community through the life of the Apostle Peter in Acts 10. The Holy Spirit deepened Peter's understanding of the reconciliatory nature of the gospel message to unite him with people who didn’t look like him. Peter eventually learned that the church is stronger together—especially across ethnic lines. It is our prayer that God would also give us a deeper revelation of the gospel as we study Peter’s journey of reconciliation.

  • These messages are designed for those who are curious about Jesus or who want to grow in their knowledge of Jesus. Each short podcast is focused on who Jesus is and what He has done for us! Feel free to share them with friends.
