Weekly sermon from Greenhouse Church in Gainesville, FL.
The Genius of APEST
50:54Who We Are. Pastor Mike Patz continues our series on the Greenhouse Fluencies by expanding Ephesians 4:7-16. "To each one grace has been given..." The gifts given are the apostles, prophets, evangelists, shepherds, and teachers... "that we may be a mature body of Christ." Each member must do their part! We call this APEST, and it's the key to a unified, healthy church!

Why Are We Generous?
51:09Who We Are: Exploring the Greenhouse Fluencies continues as Pastor Mike Patz sows the seed of Generosity. The answer to fear and lack is not getting more; it's actually generosity. If you belong to Jesus you were born again to the reality of "our Father in heaven", the King. You are invited to become more like our God, being generous on every occasion.
What Is a Microchurch?
41:02As we continue our Who We Are series, Pastor Matt Ulrich brings clarity to our microchurch vision. There is a biblical call to plant churches, but what is Church? The earliest churches were not defined by structure or a pastoral leader. Sundays are not enough! The Church is a worshiping community on mission together. At Greenhouse we call these microchurches. The Church will turn the world upside down for Jesus!
What Is Church?
50:51What is the "church"? Pastor Mike Patz continues our Who We Are series with the Green Fluency, featuring Matthew 16 and Acts 2. The irreducible minimum to define "church" is a worshiping community on mission. At Greenhouse, the arm of relationship with God (worship) is yellow. The arms of relationship with each other (community) and with the world (mission) are blue. When you mix yellow with blue you get Green!
The Epidemic of Biblical Illiteracy
57:58As we continue our Who We Are series, Pastor Mike Patz exposes the danger of the epidemic of biblical illiteracy. There are promises given to those who abide in the Word of God. At Greenhouse we believe that being fluent in Scripture is a key to living a healthy, godly life. The Word of Life is to your soul what food is to the body. We call our church to be as spiritually fit in God's Word as the greatest athlete. You will be as strong as God's Word is strong in you.
What's So Amazing About Grace?
46:44Our Who We Are series continues as Pastor Mike Patz opens up Ephesians 2:4-9. God is rich in mercy, and His great love for us has made us alive by grace. If there's anything our world needs, it is for God's people to live in the grace He has given. You will not be changed by grace until you are amazed by grace. Amaze us day by day by day!
What Is the Baptism of the Holy Spirit?
42:18In today's message in the Who We Are series, Pastor Mike Patz breaks down John 14-16, Jesus' promise of the coming of the Helper. The Holy Spirit has come to help us understand and connect with God! If we want to make much of Jesus, we must make even more of the Holy Spirit.
