Outrageous Hope, Extravagant Joy: Introduction
From Series: "Outrageous Hope, Extravagant Joy"
Hope and joy are not just wishful thoughts. Like the air we breathe, they are vital necessities of life—gifts that God wants to give to us. In the New Testament teachings of 1 Peter, the old fisherman gives practical instructions on how to live energized by the Spirit—no matter what. Join us as we immerse ourselves in the study of 1 Peter, a God-breathed letter that will challenge us to live each day of our lives with Outrageous Hope and Extravagant Joy!

Make no mistake. We are at war. Our enemy is real and is relentlessly engaged in schemes to neutralize us spiritually, rob us of joy, and take away our testimony. And with each passing day, the battle grows more intense. As believers we must stand firm on the authority God has given to us through Christ. Join us for The Final Word: Standing Firm in the Last Days, as we study spiritual warfare based upon Peter’s teaching in 2 Peter and Paul’s instruction in Ephesians 6.

It’s Never Too Late video series with Tony Evans
Book Cost: $10.00
Have you ever wished you could take back something you said? Undo a poor choice you made? Erase a painful memory? Unfortunately, you can't erase the mistakes in your past. But God can do something even better--He can use those fumbles to transform your life and lead you into the incredible destiny He has planned for you. Bestselling author Tony Evans provides encouraging proof straight from the Bible: Sarah was a doubter, Jacob was a deceiver, Moses was a murderer, Rahab was a harlot, Samson was a player, Jonah was a rebel, Esther was a diva, Peter was an apostate...and yet God turned each of their lives around in a big way. In fact, they're among the Bible's greatest heroes! What might God do with your life--imperfections and all? It's not too late to find out and get back on track to experiencing God's very best for you.
