Staying Free

Freedom doesn’t always look “hands-free.” While some situations might cry “no strings attached,” there’s actually a whole lot happening under the surface. Same with our Spiritual Health. In our series called “What’s Next” we talk about how Obedience is the source to true freedom.

Trust: The Key to What’s Next

Trust is the key ingredient in knowing God and following him in our life. Trust also takes fierce courage. To trust is to makes ourselves vulnerable—which isn’t easy for anyone! But today, in celebration of Pastor Rick’s 20 years at One Church, he share why Trust is so vital.

Living like Christ

If we’re hoping to get better in any capacity, we should agree first, that Jesus was a *perfect example of being human. Today we get into four different things that Jesus did so that maybe (just maybe) we could do the same.

Let’s Grow Together

Check out the most recent Sunday messages from our Pastors and Worship Team. Grow by taking a Next Step in faith. Let our leadership know if you need help with discovering your unique gifts or navigating your current spiritual hardships. Our Father is a God of redemption and with Him, our path can be made straight.

Spiritual Growth

You know that time when you found something *really good and you just HAD to tell someone about it? Maybe a recipe, a restaurant, a certain brand or that thing that “actually works!” It’s often more difficult though, to share your experience of church, with God or the Bible. This “thing” that you’ve seen bring real life change for you shouldn’t be hard to talk about. Which is why one of our core values at One Church is “Invest & Invite – Every person matters to God.” It’s important to us that you are able and proud to share your walk of faith with those you know and love.

Can We Trust God?

Can We Trust God?

In the middle of “the valley” (a season in life of struggle, challenge, darkness or the like) we often turn to habits and choices that offer short-term satisfaction: a tall drink, mind-numbing tv shows, that bag of Doritos, etc..
