Yesterday at 9:30 AM

On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.” John 7:37-38 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, For they shall be filled. Psalm 5:6 Let us come and feast. There is more than enough. Everyone is invited. Do not be satisfied with crumbs and drops of water. Hunger and thirst for Jesus! The one who made us righteous! He is our sust...

Last Saturday at 9:30 AM

Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:1-2 And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. He who finds his life will lose it, and he who lose...

He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake. Psalm 23:2-3 You can just rest. Take a deep breath and breathe out all worry, anxiety, stress, and discomfort. Go to the green pasture with the Lord. Close your eyes and relax in His presence. Soak up the warmth of His love. Take time to truly just rest, not worry, and be stress-free. Let His peace restore your soul. Take a drink of His presence. Take a dr...

Your kingdom come. Your will be done On Earth as it is in Heaven. Matthew 6:10 He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world 1 John 4:4 Heaven lives in us because of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit wants to move in every moment of our lives. We are a pocket of Heaven. We are called to re-present Christ everywhere we go. There is no place that His love can’t reach. Nothing can stop us when God is on our side. ACTION How can I present Christ and be a pocket of Heaven to somebody to...

Last Wednesday at 9:30 AM

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over. Psalm 23:4-5 There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love. 1 John 4:18 Do not be afraid, fear not, or some variation of that is in the Bible over 100 times. Fear...

Last Tuesday at 9:30 AM

Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.” John 8:12 You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:14-16 The light of the...

Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it. Matthew 7:13-14 “Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, And into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.” Psalms 100:4 Come on through. You are welcome in His presence. The veil is torn forever! We have total access to the Father in Heaven. Take the road less traveled. It i...

And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.“ Amen.

01/07/2022

Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. Matthew 6:31-32 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. Psalm 23:1 A shepherd protects, feeds, and guides his sheep. Our Father is the perfect shepherd in our lives. He will leave the ninety-nine just to find you. Relax, everything will be okay. Our desire to want is pointless after we know Him. He knows everything we need and wants to take care of us...

Our Father in Heaven, Hallowed be Your name. Matthew 6:9 For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb.

And forgive us our debts, As we forgive our debtors. And do not lead us into temptation, But deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen. Matthew 6:12-13 We owe God everything because he paid our debt in full through Jesus Christ. Everything we have done or will ever do has been forgiven. The Father does not hold any grudges. It is forgiven. The only thing we are called to do in the Lord’s prayer is to forgive others. This forgiveness should be grounded in us so much so...

But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly. Matthew 6:6 Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. James 4:8 Countless times Jesus left the disciples to go spend time with His Father. Our Father wants to spend time with you.

Give us this day our daily bread. Matthew 6:11 And Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst. John 6:35 Jesus, you satisfy me. The things of the world do not compare to You. You are my source of life. I need you daily. I cannot get through my day without You.

But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you Matthew 6:33 Your love for the Father is directly connected to your desire to seek Him. You cannot grow in love with somebody if you do not know them. Seek Him first in all things. Ask Him first in every situation. The Father wants to show you where to go as well as make sure you are prepared for the journey. No need to worry, His ways are higher than our ways. The Father knows what is best. Be relentless. You will...


Seek First: Temples of God
#53
01/02/2022

Jess begins our 21 Days of Prayer & Fasting and sermon series, “Seek First”. The presence of God is no longer a location, but through Jesus, we are now temples of God, dwelling places of His presence. The call for us is to Seek First the face of God and His Kingdom.


Christmas: The Promise Delivered
#52
12/19/2021

Ash preaches from the Christmas story and the promise of Jesus Christ that was delivered to this earth. Mary had an opportunity to say “yes” to the call of God for her to carry and mother Jesus. In the same way, God has given promises to us that we have a choice to say “yes” to and walk in them. We too, are promise carriers, we carry Jesus to the world.

Transition
#47
11/14/2021

Duncan preaches out of Acts 13 and distinguishes the differences between the Jerusalem church and the Antioch church. Catch The Fire Raleigh-Durham has been called to be an Antioch Church that sends out and deploys people into their next steps and journey with the Lord. Transition is not always easy but when we are listening to the voice of The Lord, there will always be fruitfulness.


The Prodigal Son
#46
11/07/2021

Jonathan preaches out of Luke 15 and The Prodigal Son. The main question is who should have gone out looking for the younger son? In this culture it should have been the older brother. However, through the Parable, Jesus shows us that He is our older brother, and coming to look for us came at a great cost to Him, it costed Him His life. Jesus has come to find us both in our successes and our failures, and He leads us to the Father.

The gospel is an invitation to step deeper into relationship with God and not to remain complacent where we are. Duncan encourages us to consecrate ourselves, laying our lives down before God, giving our everything to Him as He’s given His everything to us.


Who Are You Listening To?
#41
10/10/2021

There are many voices that we can listen to: theories, opinions, culture, and our own values, but we are called to listen to Jesus and love the word of God. As we listen to the word of God, it becomes part of us, leading us into all truth.


Becoming The Rock
#40
10/03/2021

Ericka charges us to remember our true identities and to remain firm in who we are. God wants us to walk in freedom and nothing makes the enemy more afraid than believers who stand in their true identities and walk in their God-given authority.


The Urgency of Forgiveness
#39
09/26/2021

Through Jesus, we have been given the strength to continually walk in forgiveness, saying no to bitterness and resentment. Aaron reminds us of the sobering yet, invitational reality of what Jesus says about God’s urging for us to walk in forgiveness and the keys to our freedom that can be found in being obedient to this call.


Radical Connection
#38
09/19/2021

We live in a society that says we don’t need one another but God calls us to live in radical connection. He’s calling us to an upward, inward, and outward journey where we are hungry for God to crash in and transform our lives and the lives of those around us.


Savers, Spenders and Givers: Jesus on Money
#37
09/12/2021

Jonathan expounds on Luke 12 and encourages us to be good stewards with the resources that God has given us. To grow in wisdom on what God’s heart is for us and His kingdom when it comes to finances and possessions. We can walk in the revelation that generosity and abundance are important to the Lord and His desire is for us to walk in both.


Pouring Out Our Love
#36
09/05/2021

Ash reminds us of the importance of dealing with the issues of our hearts and always returning to love. She shared the story of Mary and the alabaster jar of perfume to illustrate demonstrating love, no matter the cost. There are so many opportunities in our lives to live in offense and opposition towards one another, but we are called to walk in love.


Stewarding Your Seeds
#35
08/29/2021

Jess preaches from the Parable of The Sower in Mark 4 and the responsibility that we have to steward the seeds (the words) that God has given us. She discusses the different types of soil that our seeds may fall on and how to keep our hearts fertile soil to receive the words of God for our lives.


Knowing Your Calling- Part 2
#34
08/22/2021

Murray continues his mini series on “Knowing Your Calling”. Stepping into our calling is an invitation from God and it’s through His grace, that we have been given through Christ, that we can walk it out. God also invites us into unity as The Body of Christ, and we maintain that unity through the spirit of peace.

Knowing Your Calling - Part 1
#32
08/08/2021

As believers, we each have spiritual gifts and are called to express them and disciple those around us, bringing together The Body of Christ. Our platform is not for just the church context, it’s for our spheres of influence and where God has planted us to fulfill His calling and destiny that He’s given us.


Who's Building Your Blessing?
#31
08/01/2021

God turns our tragedies into trophies of His grace. As believers, there are going to be obstacles that we are going to face, but we can't build muscles without resistance. It's through overcoming with Christ that we grow in our faith and our wisdom. How we respond to those testing moments in our lives defines us and our maturity in our wisdom and understanding of the goodness of God.


Embrace Climate Change
#30
07/25/2021

Rochelle charges us to embrace “climate change”, embracing the shift of what God is doing in our lives and where He is taking us in the next season. God wants to partner with us in every season of our lives, whether we are in “harvest” or in the “desert”, because there is purpose in every moment. Give us eyes of discernment, Lord, to see what you are doing and when.
