Loveology

In the beginning God created man and woman, and ever since we have been asking questions about love, marriage, sex, and romance. Loveology is an exploration of what the Bible has to say about the never ending story of male and female.

Based on the writing of the book, the Loveology Series features in-depth discussion from lead pastor and author John Mark Comer, guest teachers, and a live Q&A session.

Peace on Earth

There’s something in us as humans that knows things should be different. When we see injustice, when children three or four years old wander the streets begging for money to survive, with no parents, all alone; when the AIDS pandemic sweeps away millions of lives; when disparity separates the rich and the poor; when the opulent waste of American culture sits next to the 3 billion people who live on less than two dollars a day, something in us says, that’s not right.

At A Jesus Church, 10% of every dollar goes directly to Hear the Cry; a work for the widow, the orphan and the poor. Our church identity is found in our dedication to justice and generosity. We want to bring the kingdom of God to Earth and see the hearts of men filled with shalom.

The Good Fight

Biblical authors commonly present the reality of an unseen world all around us that affects and intersects with everyday life. This unseen world includes a host of spiritual beings that are in opposition to the Creator God and his people. Some followers of Jesus over-spiritualize this reality and live in perpetual fear. Others live life as if to pretend that it doesn’t even exist. How can we better understand the worldview and admonitions of the Bible in order to faithfully and successfully carry the gospel of Jesus forward in spite of opposition?

In this series, we want to have an honest conversation about some of the “dark and scary” stuff we come across in the scriptures and our world today. Moreover, we want to understand what it means to navigate through our culture with wisdom while faithfully fighting for God’s kingdom from a position of victory and confidence in Jesus our King.

God Has a Name

Who is God? Is God a he, a she, a they, or an it? Is God a force or a person? Is God good or evil? Strong or weak? Close or far away? What is God like?

The fact is that everyone has a picture of God, whether right or wrong. However, to answer the question of who God is, we have to go to the source.

Exodus 34v6-7, is God's self-disclosure of Himself. It is the only place in all of the Bible where God describes Himself and because of that, it is the most quoted verse in the Bible, by the Bible, and the epicenter for a theology of God.

Philippians: A Colony of Heaven

Acts 16 tells the story of Paul coming to plant a church in Philippi, a colony of Rome. Living under the impression of Roman culture and rule as a colony, Paul commissions the people to live out the gospel--finding joy in the middle of suffering as "a colony of heaven."

Just as Paul encouraged the Philippians, we too are encouraged to live out the gospel. Working in and through the church as a community, formed in partnership around the gospel, in humility and unity.

The Philippians series focuses on nine themes: the gospel, the church, partnership around the gospel, humility, unity, the colony, following Jesus, suffering for the gospel, and joy.

The Work Series

We spend about 1/3 of our lifetime working and studies show that staggering numbers of modern Americans are unhappy in their occupation.

For some people, work is a curse. To others works is a god. Still others understand their work as part of their calling.

The Bible has much to say about work and The Work Series aims to unpack the reasons we work and the differences between an occupation and a vocation.

My Name is Hope

For years, John Mark Comer thought he was the only man on the planet who struggled with anxiety and depression. The truth is, staggering numbers of modern Americans fight anxiety and depression. In 2010, there were 253 million prescriptions for antidepressants in the U.S. alone--That’s in a nation of 311 million people!

The series covers the story of one follower of Jesus who went through the horrors of anxiety and depression and came out the other side. My Name is Hope is his ruthlessly authentic and scripturally authoritative account of prophets and poets, mothers and fathers, and even a Messiah who all came up against anxiety and depression.
