New Sermon Series! Revolutionary Road | The Road That Leads Home

Jesus preaches a sermon. He describes life lived in accordance to his kingdom - a “Christian manifesto” that will unsettle anyone that has settled. The way things are, are not the way things will be. Jesus is telling us how humans are meant to live. It may seem impossible, and even at times “upside-down”; but if we give ourselves to living this way, we will find that we were made to live this way. We will find it natural. We will find ourselves on a road that leads home. Come, let us sit at the feet of Jesus together, and discover how any of this is possible.
