Motivated by Mercy (video)

By Church
As Christians, our desire should be to live a life worthy of the Lord and to seek to please him in every way. But this desire can easily become legalistic or driven by guilt. For Paul, the reason we should aspire to be spiritually mature is rooted in what God has done for us: “he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves.” Watch more videos at the Mountainview YouTube channel.

By Church
Have you ever been watching TV when a “Breaking News” segment comes on? There's always dramatic music and special graphics. What I’m about to share with you isn’t breaking news.

Handling Bullies (video)

By Church, Preaching
When I was in grade school, if someone wanted to bully me – they had to corner me on playground and steal my milk money. Today, a bully doesn’t have to be physically present. We have social media, texting, and trolling. And it’s not limited to our kids. As adults, we have our bullies, too. As a Christian, I believe in God as our Creator. As our Creator, he understands human nature better than anyone else. In God's eyes, it’s better to be a peacemaker than a troublemaker. Watch more videos at the Mountainview YouTube channel.
