  • bringing truth to a new generation

    Dr. Sean McDowell is a gifted communicator with a passion for equipping the church, particularly young people, to make the case for the Christian faith. He connects with audiences in a tangible way through humor and stories while imparting hard evidence and logical support for viewing all areas of life through a Biblical worldview. Here, Sean tackles some of the biggest questions about God, morality, and contemporary culture:

    What Happened to the Apostles of Jesus?     

    How Can a Loving God Send Someone to Hell?  

    Beauty is One of the Best Arguments for God (Here's Why!)

    Is It Important to Defend the Faith Anymore?

    Why Truth Matters Today More Than Ever

  • Every religion, every worldview is telling a story. They're trying to take the things we know about the world and fit them together into a big picture. Click on the link above to learn more about the true Story of Reality.

  • Eyewitness video narratives are Bible-based and are designed to spark your imagination and provoke your curiosity. Each video is 8-15 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 for the videos and related Scriptures (see the Resources tab below each video).

  • the gospel of mark - francis chan

    The Gospel of Mark chronicles Jesus’s journey from Galilee to Jerusalem. Along the way, the Messiah gathers a ragged band of disciples. As crowds grow and dwindle on the road to Jerusalem, only a few stick by the Suffering Savior on the road of discipleship.

    In this 11-part series on the Gospel of Mark, author and speaker Francis Chan invites us to walk with him along the ancient ways of the Master. Tracing the steps of Jesus and the Twelve through Israel, Francis explores the major themes of the Gospel of Mark, and asks: Are we willing to take this journey to embrace discipleship?

  • Get a big-picture understanding of the Old Testament in this series of twelve short courses. These courses examine the creation of Israel as a nation and God’s process of building that nation to represent Him on earth. Dr. Douglas Stuart lays the foundation for understanding the struggles and triumphs of the relationship between God and Israel. He also provides additional information to help you grasp the full context of the Scriptures in the historical time period they were written.

  • 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.
