A Biblical Theology of Sex
37:15The Open Heavens series continues, as Pastor Matt Ulrich takes us through the often confusing words in 1 Corinthians 7:1-7. Sex is an amazing gift from God, but we have hijacked its meaning for our own selfish purposes. What voice are you listening to in regards to sex? We must relearn what we have heard about sex, and align it to how scripture has defined it.
Single and Content
55:28The Open Heaven series continues as Pastor Brooke Bauzon shares the heart behind 1 Corinthians 7. Singleness does not mean one is incomplete. When you're dominated by cultures values, you will always live in anxiety. But when you are devoted to kingdom values, you will always live in abundance. In every relationship, we are called to live in undivided devotion to Jesus!

Sexuality and Identity
43:03This week Pastor Andrea Sarafan continues our look at 1 Corinthians, the Open Heaven series, with chapter 6. Sexuality and Identity is such a difficult topic in the times we are in. We have all been created as sexual beings, and likewise we have been deceived by the culture around us. One of the lies we believe is that God is holding out on us. Sexuality is part of us, but it is not the heart or core of us. Intimacy with God is what we truly need to thrive in life. We are promised fulfillment through Him alone.
From Lawsuits to Love
45:09Our Open Heaven series continues with 1 Corinthians 6:1-8. Pastor Oscar Roche titles this message, From Lawsuits to Love. The people of biblical Corinth were so much like we are today. How does a gospel-shaped community deal with grudges? The lawless things can become so huge. We are challenged to be wise in the truth, and forgiving with grace, to live in an open heaven.
38:16Our motives matter! Pastor Matt Ulrich continues the Open Heaven series with a difficult look at 1 Corinthians 5. As disciples of Jesus, we are called to be transformed agents of transformation. When confronting sin, we must do so the way Jesus would, with grace. What is the heart behind confrontation? It always must be done in love.
39:16As we continue the Open Heaven series, Pastor Mike Patz challenges us to Redefine Greatness. The church in Corinth was enamored with success and celebrities. In 1 Corinthians 4, we find that greatness isn't what you think. When the world is turned upside down, greatness is getting low like a servant. True success is found in taking up the towel and serving others. We are called to bend lowly like Jesus.
Light Shines in the Darkness
24:46https://www.kindridgiving.com/app/Giving/greenhousechurch/MAINCAMPUS It's Big Give Sunday, and Pastor Mike Patz welcomes our mission partners, Life For The Innocent and Missionary Sam. John 1:1-5 says, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God... In Him was life, and the life was the light of men..." Every person, every child was made by God. In the midst of the great darkness in the world, the point of healing is the Light of God. Darkness will not overcome, as we accept the call to shine the light of Jesus!
The Judgment Seat of Christ
44:58Because of the death and resurrection of Jesus, we have an Open Heaven today. Pastor Mike Patz continues this series with the reality of 1 Corinthians 3:9-15, The Judgement Seat of Christ. So much like we are today, the Corinthian Church was obsessed with wisdom. The lives we live on earth cannot be founded on worldly wisdom. The day of the Lord is coming, and we must live under the judgment of God, not the approval of people. How are you preparing for that day? Jesus is the only foundation, and when He is our foundation there will be peace.
What Does It Mean to Be “Spiritual?"
45:33Are you a person who lives naturally, supernaturally or in the flesh? Pastor Mike digs more into the book of Corinthians as we continue our Open Heaven series. Paul is describing immaturity in the Corinthian church, which is valuable for us to process as those following Jesus in the 21st century.
How to Unlock Divine Power
45:43How do we unlock divine power? Pastor Mike Patz continues the Open Heaven series by breaking down 1 Corinthians 2:1-2. The temptation in our day is to be an activist while going quiet about the name of Jesus. We can't compete with the lofty ways of the world! When we have God we don't need anything else. It is never going to be enough to engage in human strength; we must unlock divine power.
