Boundless #6 - Transformation

Boundless #6 - Transformation

As we look at Pangea Church’s story, several threads run through its vision to be “a church that follows in the way of Jesus, to inspire others in the way of love.” We are influenced by our Anabaptist heritage, contemporary evangelical (missional) ministry model, charismatic / spiritual formation approach to life with God, and liturgical practices. Our 5 core values flow out of these streams of the faith. In this series, we look at the center of our faith: a God of love. This God is boundless, unable to be captured by our ideas, while at the same time attempting to articulate the good and beautiful God we experience in Jesus by the Spirit. This boundless God is boundless in love, a love that relentlessly moves us to lean into our core values, with the ultimate hope: to see people transformed for the good of our city and world. This series is all about our vision and identity at Pangea.

Soundtrack #3 - The Magnetism of Love

Soundtrack #3 - The Magnetism of Love

This three-week series addresses the call of every Christian to live with an attitude that honors Jesus and attracts others to him. When we get down to it, our life has a soundtrack. It's making a noise, a melody, a distinct overall presentation that creates an atmosphere. As Christians, we need to ask ourselves: Does the sound of my life point people to God? All too often, believers are known as harsh and judgmental. This series looks at specific passages that instruct us to live in such a way that we show people the love of God while displaying the truth.

Things Jesus Never Said #9 - When God sees you, He sees Me (José Guillen)

Things Jesus Never Said #9 - When God sees you, He sees Me (José Guillen)

Jesus gets credit for all sorts of things that he never said and this is a problem. We have a tendency to attach attach our own made-up ideas and cultural experiences to Jesus and some of these ideas have the potential to shape our relationship with God and with people.

Or perhaps worse, we fill in the blank with what we want Jesus to say and create a Jesus that shares our values and priorities.

If we give Jesus credit for an idea that wasn’t his, we assign kingdom value to that idea and this can destroy relationships and give us a distorted of what it means to follow Jesus.

...these are just some of the things, Jesus never said.

The Science of Scripture #6 - Paul, Adam, Original Sin

The Science of Scripture #6 - Paul, Adam, Original Sin

Maybe you grew up as a Christian. 
In America.
In a church that was good... but not good with science.

It might even be true that you were exposed to alternative 'science.' 
The sort that was determined to show you how the Bible is the original science text book.

Well...
We think there's a better way. 
Too many people give up on God, because they were handed the wrong set of tools for reading the bible.

Science isn't the enemy of faith.
The Bible isn't a text book for proving alt-science.

A better conversation, a more faithful way of reading Scripture, does exist.
Join us for a series where we examine: how to read the Bible, Genesis 1, Adam & Eve, and more!
