Come and See (video)

By Church
How did Jesus recruit followers? How does his method influence our approach today? Rather than try to convince people to follow him by winning arguments, Jesus simply invited them to spend time with him. “Come and see” is an invitation to be with Jesus. Just as Jesus did with his disciples, we are to extend the same invitation to our friends and neighbors today. Our goal isn’t to win them to a system or structure but to introduce them to a person – Jesus! Watch more videos at the Mountainview YouTube channel. Looking for a Speaking Coach?

God’s Chosen One (video)

By Church
Jesus was the smartest person who ever lived. His teachings have inspired billions of people. His influence has shaped education, medicine, and so much more. There has never been anyone whose impact comes close to Jesus. Why is that? Ultimately, it’s because we believe Jesus is not only the smartest person who ever lived – he is also the most unique person who ever lived. He was God in the flesh, the living Son of God. In God’s great plan of redemption, Jesus was God’s chosen way of reconciling a lost world unto himself. Watch more videos at the Mountainview YouTube channel. Looking for a Speaking Coach?

Have You Met the New Neighbor (video)

By Church
At Christmas time, we hear two words that speak to the unique nature of Jesus. One is Emmanuel: God with us. The other is Incarnation: God in flesh. It is the unique nature of Jesus that sets Christianity apart from other world religions. It was no ordinary baby who was born in Bethlehem. When Jesus spoke in the Gospels, people were hearing the voice of God. Finally, when Jesus died on the cross, he wasn’t just another execution carried out by the Roman government – he was the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world (John 1:29). While Jesus did become flesh and move into our neighborhood, your heart is really the place he wants to live. Watch more videos at the Mountainview YouTube channel. Looking for a Speaking Coach?

No One Else Like Jesus (video)

By Church
In all of human history, there has never been – nor will there ever be – anyone like Jesus. In these opening verses, John is introducing us to Jesus by highlighting his unique nature. The Christmas story testifies to the unique nature of Jesus in terms of creation (through him all things were made) as well as his ability to free people from spiritual darkness (the light shines in the darkness and the darkness has not overcome it). This message celebrates how Jesus stands out as the only true light that can give light to everyone. Watch more videos at the Mountainview YouTube channel. Looking for a Speaking Coach?

From the Beginning (video)

By Church
Contrary to what we might think, the Christmas story did not begin in Bethlehem or even when the angel Gabriel appeared to Mary. The Christmas story – God coming from heaven to earth – has existed in the heart of God since the very beginning. This message kicks off our Christmas series by reminding us that Jesus (the Word) was “with God in the beginning” – and his arrival was not a spur-of-the-moment decision by God to save his people. The Christmas story is part of a larger story – the overarching story of God’s redemptive plan. To truly understand the importance of Christmas, we must place it within this larger story.
