Speaking with Boldness in the Face of Adversity

A Word from Josh

The book of Acts is not just a history of the early church. It is a template of exciting  ministry service for us today. It gives us inspiration and direction for living on mission with Jesus in the power of the Spirit. The work that Christ began continues through us. Let’s get on with it!

This Month's Featured Resource from God Centered Life

This month at God Centered Life, we're offering a copy of Barnabas Piper's Hoping for Happiness for your gift of any amount. In this book, recovering cynic Barnabas Piper helps us to throw off both the unrealistic expectations that end in disappointment and the guilty sense that Christians are not meant to have fun. He shows how having a clear view of the reality of the fall and the promise of redemption frees us to live a life that's grounded, hopeful and genuinely happy.
