Jesus Calling

New Life City is a prophetic church; a church where we look at each other not through the lens of your history but through the lens of your destiny. As such, we long for God's fullness in our lives and church. One of the reasons New Life City exists is because we saw the gap between what Jesus was saying and what we were doing, and we decided the gap was our problem and not a God problem. We started longing for the distance to be closed between what God was saying and what we were tasting. Jesus is calling us. We must respond. 

Scripture: Matthew 10:1-15

The Gospel of the Kingdom
The Gospel of the Kingdom.jpg

Do you have a gospel? Matthew uses the phrase, "the Gospel of the Kingdom" three times. Other gospel writers use "the Kingdom of God" or "the Kingdom of Heaven." It's the same Kingdom all around. Most Christians say the gospel is believing in Jesus so we'll go to heaven. That's not the way the first century Christians thought of the gospel. The good news is that we have a King and he rules over his kingdom in power and might. 

Scripture: Matthew 9:18-38

Healing on its Wings

One way to know we're religious is to notice how easily we get offended at forgiveness when it is freely given to others, especially our enemies. God's grace and mercy is handed out freely to those who receive. With Christ's grace, there is no accounting; we're just forgiven. Your sins are forgiven, go ahead and rest in the goodness of God's grace. Do you believe it? Pastor Alan works through the story of the paralytic, Jesus calling Matthew, and new wineskins in this freeing word.

Scripture: Matthew 9:1-17

The Faith To Follow

Death is a constant in human life and many question God's goodness in the face of it. Christ was swallowed up into death and destroyed it because he had authority over it. He then said to his disciples and to us, "Follow me." All of us will be called to greater things in Jesus but not everything will be easy. Christ was swallowed up by death and defeated it. The question of the hour is: Do we believe Jesus has the authority in our lives to do what he has done? For we cannot really follow Jesus if we want authority over our own lives.

Scripture: Matthew 8:18-27

Authority: On Earth as it is in Heaven

In this incredibly personal sermon, Pastor Alan speaks about his own struggles with depression, when he had a mental breakdown in the pulpit, and how he came to know Jesus as the healer of all. As his 'imagers,' Christ has imparted his authority to all of us through his Spirit. Alan gives us insight into Christ's authority and how it should inform our prayer life.

Scripture: Matthew 8:1-17

Who Will Follow?

Pastor Alan Hawkins takes us through Jesus' temptation and notes that Jesus was tempted on the last word He heard from His Father ("Is that what God really said?"). Jesus followed that by quoting scripture and reaffirming what God the Father did say. Who will follow Christ and the truth the Father says?

Scripture: Matthew 4
