God is calling us to a life of IMMERSION.
When we hear the call of Jesus and resolve to follow Him with all that we have, we are choosing a life of putting ourselves, our dreams, our families in the ground. When this happens we can rest, knowing that the growth and the fruit that is produced is because GOD has done it!
This morning we continued our series on "Identity." Clarence's word will encourage you to come to Jesus and immerse yourself in him! This is the “birth canal” to revival in your life and in our city.
"The truth of the scripture sets us free from what people think; and God wants to surround us with his people so that we can echo what God is saying about one another; so that we can answer with our greatest "YES."
This morning we continued our series on "Identity." Clarence's word will encourage you to come underneath the name of Jesus and see the powerful ramifications that it has on our lives.
"Our 'Yes' is bound in our identity."
This morning we began our new series "Identity." This series will not just call you OUT of where you might have been but UP to who you are!
"The invitation into God is not an invitation into religion...it is an invitation into a family overcomers."
Come join the family and let's do this gospel thing together!
Are you living out a life of courage or are you living out a life of fear?
With our last week in our Called to Courage series, Clarence continues to encourage us to step out into what God has called you to!
Sometimes we exist in the middle of courage and fear, and we simply simply follow the the leader or the crowd in front of us. What God is doing is calling us to speak His heart into the spaces of our lives where people need to hear another way to live.
"If your doctrine is too complicated, you need to get back to the simplicity of this truth; 'I once was blind but now I see!'"
This week, we continued our series "Called to Courage." Clarence laid out the need for forgiveness to play a major role in our relationships. "Free people free people. But hurt people hurt people."
Our prayer for you as you watch and listen is that God would give you great courage to forgive those who have wronged you and pursue healing in the relationships that God wants to work in!
"When we see who He [God] is - He will tell us who we are."
Clarence began our new series, Called to Courage, this week. This series will be a powerful call to this house to believe what God has said about us and step into this gospel work with His authority.
"Free people, free people and courage produces courage." This Sunday, specifically, we learn through the life of Peter that we don't have to worry about being perfect because God is concerned about our heart.
This sermon will encourage you to turn towards Jesus and come to the feet of the Father in your lack of courage so that He can pour into you. Perfect love casts out fear!
"Jesus has done everything necessary for us to have our victory! Obedience will get you there."
Clarence was back in the house today bringing a powerful word on Teaming Up and building a base of power in the people you are inviting into your inner circle. He challenged us by asking "Who in your life knows what Jesus has called you to do?"
We need people in our lives to help us to walk out what Jesus has called us to do. This sermon will encourage you to build "cords of three strands" in your life that will help you to press into Jesus and protect yourself from isolation!
"When a seed is sown into a field, and it accepts it, it is agreeing to a life of COMPLETE TRANSFORMATION!"
Chauncey Shillow was our very special guest this past weekend and what an incredibly timely word he has as we continue our GO Series.
You'll be challenged and encouraged to look at the spaces and places in your life where God has "sown" you as greater opportunities than you may have ever realized!
"Sometimes we will go further for tacos than we will for the Kingdom."
Our Lead Pastor, Clarence Hill, was back with us this week as we continue our GO Series. In "We Say Yes" Clarence walked us through examples in Abraham's life where he unfailingly said “Yes.” We are called, as goers, to have a never-ending YES!
Be encouraged as you listen to Jesus and respond to Him, that every YES is significant in the Kingdom!!
Andrew Franklin serves as the counseling pastor right here at Antioch Norman. Continuing in our series "GO," Andrew brought a word about getting our vision from Jesus and letting that drives us. "We need to be so clear about Heaven that it affects how we see things on earth."
When we focus on Jesus we can have vision for our future. In his message he gives us action steps to refocus on Jesus and the vision from heaven for our own lives and callings! How are you fulfilling your own unique GO?
Blake Slatten, a faithful voice in this house and the Antioch Movement, spoke this week about going Beyond the Walls. "When you have revelation of the Holy Spirit it goes from obligation to delight. We get to be God's witnesses."
In his message he gives us two practical ways to do just that in our own lives.
“I have authority…to pray over my city…and be heard!”
Clarence was back in the house this morning after several weeks of traveling and training around the country! He brought some very practical and encouraging words to help us increase our joy in God. “Confidence in God fills leaks that cause us to lose our joy in Him.” Our capability to seek the good of our families, our friendships, our workplaces, our neighborhoods and our cities rely more heavily on our joy than we may realize!
“If you’re not dead, God’s not done!”
Jed Chappell is the REAL DEAL and we were so blessed to have he and his wife, Julie this weekend! Jed & Julie founded City Center on August 1, 2016. Serving as the CEO of City Center, Jed hopes to bring relief and restoration to lives in Oklahoma City through establishing community resource centers in under-resourced communities throughout Oklahoma City.
Jady Griffin, Pastor of Antioch Austin, was in the house this morning! Jady’s word of challenge and encouragement to us this morning is to continue to press in to God in relentless prayer. You don’t want to miss this; you may want to put it on repeat!
“I believe that we are in a time where the church needs to pray more than it ever has before.”
On Father’s Day, Chris Doke brought a sweet word about God's pursuit of us as a loving Father. Chris serves as one of our Elders here at Antioch Norman and models the Father's heart so well for this house, but more importantly, carries it deeply for his own family.
We are always being pursued by our loving Heavenly Father. This message reminds us that we are important to God, no matter what choices we make.
Join us as Pastor Clarence shares part two of his message entitled City Transformation.
John-Mark lives with his wife and five children on the south side of Oklahoma City where he serves as pastor of Christ Community Church. This inner-city congregation seeks to follow Jesus and make disciples in a way that integrates the work of evangelism, spiritual formation, compassion for the hurting, justice for the oppressed, and reconciliation for those who have been divided by sin. John-Mark’s academic training lies at the intersection of Christian theology and contemporary social ethics.
Clarence spoke on City Transformation and how we, as followers of Jesus, can transform the city that we live in by activating our faith! In this encouraging message Clarence gives us practical ways to increase our impact by activating our faith through service and joy.
Clarence spoke this Sunday on Activating Your Faith - he shared some practical ways to do just that. A very simple idea is that when you hear the word of God the world tries to distract you from activating your faith and doing something with the Word. Therefore we have to start doing something with the Word that we hear - soon after we hear it!
We were so blessed to host Elizabeth Dungan this Sunday for Mother's Day! She shares her personal testimony of the mothers she's had in her life and how she had to walk through a lot of forgiveness and grace toward them once she became a Christian. This is a powerful message about how forgiveness and prayer are the weapons that the enemy cannot touch!
