On the night of our Grand Opening and Public Launch we speak of the possibility of miracles in this modern age of rationalistic coincidences. God is still God you know.
Do you want a church with soup or the supernatural? Who cares, I have a mansion in glory.
Ever feel like the only thing ruining church are the people? What if church didn't have to be a churchy church fake place? If NewChurch isn't about Jesus it isn't about anything.
1. There’s probably a God and 2. People are the worst. So what?
What does "Repent" mean? Why is the word lost to us? Are there really bears in the woods?
What good can possibly come from simply reading the Bible? Oh, you think you already know don't you?
What would the annoying people surrounding us look like if we saw them the way God sees them?
Looking at the Book of Ezra in preparation for the public launch of NewChurch. What does God expect of us when He calls us to worship Him?
I'm talking about personal plans, resolutions and how to deal with changes in our life. I'm also talking about the future of NewChurch and where this ship is heading.
This is the NewChurch Christmas Eve message. It uses The Grinch as an example of who to not be when celebrating with other humans. The message isn't only for Christmas.

What do you want to bet we also have some kooky misguided ideas about how this all ends? I suggest we hold on to our opinions loosely—God has a way of surprising us.
Where we learn that Jesus has come to save us from a terrible and jealous dragon who wants us to die and rot in hell.
We don’t treat people the way they treat us—we are not trying to be “fair” because we know that if God treated us the way we treat Him there would be no hope for us. Grace. It changes everything.
What is the answer to the question of the problem of evil? If we are going to say that Jesus is the answer then we better be willing to admit there are actually some hard questions. Listen if you dare.
We all have people in our life that we have to put up with. Jesus says we are not supposed to hope they die along with their dreams.
If we were honest, some of us are embarrassed that the Bible seems to embrace all this supernatural goofiness.
Love seems to be very important but what exactly is it?
God’s P.R. people have been blowing it for thousands of years.
Is there something/someone you trust more than Jesus?
"Worship" might not be the best word for what we are actually doing in church.
Eat and drink for tomorrow we die might be the best news you've ever heard.
This is our basic strategy for sharing Jesus with the lost: Merry Christmas, Happy Easter, Joy to World and you’re going to hell.
Am I a prophet? Are you? This is Frank guest preaching at Oikos Church in Houston.
This is what God wants us all to do, and how to do it. Three easy steps!
