This video is an introduction to the Connection Series and our approach to teaching the Salvation 101, Baptism 201, We Are Family 301, Gifts Camp 401, and Called to Lead 501 courses over the next 6 months.
We begin Salvation 101 talking about biblical salvation according to the Word of God. It’s important that your salvation is based on a relationship with God, not man.
Salvation is about living the abundant life that God promises in His Word. It’s about living in the light naked and unafraid. Take back the power that you have given to others, and live the free life.
“For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,” Ephesians 3: 14-15 King James Version. Family is God’s idea. It is the foundation of every culture, including the kingdom of God. Our entire lives are marked by our experiences of family. In “As For Me & My House”, we will dive into the spiritual and practical lessons that the Bible teaches us about family–His plan, promises, and purpose.
We begin by taking a look at what the scriptures say about the family covenant. We explore the genealogy of Christ and what that means for you today.
God has a plan for family. In fact, it is his first priority. This is demonstrated when he created mankind in his image and commanded them to have dominion.
We pick up where we left off last week with Cain and Abel. Their story gives us insight into the root of family dysfunction and sibling rivalry.
God’s heart for you is revealed in his promises. As a believer, you have promises from God when it comes to your family that you can put your trust in.
“ If we are God’s children, that means we are His heirs along with the Anointed, set to inherit everything that is His. If we share His sufferings, we know that we will ultimately share in His glory,” Romans 8: 17 The Voice. The word “victory” means an act of defeating an enemy or opponent in a battle, game, or other competition. You are in a battle for your life, but if you are a child of God, success is your destiny. Victory is your birthright.
As a disciple of Christ, winning is in your DNA. You were adopted into the family of the King, elevating you to His level and entitling you to possession of His goods.
A bloodline is defined as your heritage or ancestry. When you are in Christ, His blood draws a new royal line for you, no matter the circumstances of your natural birth.
As an heir in God’s family, you were born with certain rights, privileges, and possessions. It is imperative that you understand what they are so that you can live with expectancy as a victor in this life.
Your identity is comprised of the characteristics that define you. As a born again believer, your carnal self died with Jesus on the cross, and now your spiritual self is alive to God.
“The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole body, sets the whole course of one’s life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell,” James 3: 6 New International Version. Positive confession, affirmations, and naming and claiming cannot override the power of the tongue. The Bible says that it has to be tamed because it’s small spark can set a forest on fire. It contains the power of life and death, and those who love using it will eat the fruit of their words.
The scriptures say that death and life are in the power of the tongue, this week Kim Whyatt helps us understand the power of the choice that God has given us.
Taming the tongue is a fight you can win with words–fighting words. You have the power to tame the tongue with the help of the Holy Spirit!
Blessing and cursing are the fruit of how you choose to use your tongue. We explore the difference between good fruit and rotten fruit and their effect in your life.
As the tongue is set on fire of hell, the scriptures also tell us that the heart is the source of evil. Thankfully, Jesus is the cure for our heart disease.
Worship is not the slow song that the choir sings. Worship is not the amount you place in the offering basket. Worship is not volunteering in children’s church. Yes, these may be acts or expressions of worship, but they do not define what true worship really is. Worship is to honor with extravagant love and extreme submission(Webster’s Dictionary,1828).
True worship, in other words, is defined by the priority we place on who God is in our lives and where God is on our list of priorities. True worship is a matter of the heart expressed through a lifestyle of holiness. (Taken from Christianity Today.) Worship is the secret weapon against the enemies of God and man.
The foundation for this series is laid with a definition of worship and descriptions of the Godhead’s extravagant love as a foundation for a lifestyle of true worship.
This study covers extreme submission: losing control by giving our lives to God’s authority and control. It all begins with salvation.
This week’s focus is on elaborate service. Serving God means that He has given us something to do, but how we do it is imperative. You make yourself available to do for others.
In this final episode of the Worship series, we cover the weapons of our warfare, the armor spoken of in Ephesians and the more excellent way.
Prayer is supernatural work that Paul tells us to do nonstop in 1 Thessalonians 5: 17, “Pray without ceasing.” That requires a 24/7/365 commitment to supernatural communication that changes the natural. Envision a heavenly distribution system that transports our requests from earth to God in Heaven. This series will help you understand why we pray, how we pray, what to pray, when to pray, who we should pray for, and how to practically pray around the clock. Prayer is not a program, a transaction, or a religious exercise. Prayer is a way of life. Your shift starts now.
The Prayer Shift Promo
We begin The Prayer Shift series by making the case for praying nonstop. Learn about the spiritual work that every believer is called to–why we pray, how we pray, prayer in the Bible, and the types of prayer.
We continue answering last week’s Why Do We Pray question by going deeper into prayer as communication with God, and we finish it off by exposing the many hindrances to prayer.
This week is a thorough investigation of the many types of prayer in the Bible with practical examples of each one so that you will make the prayer shift and know how to strengthen your prayer life.
Now that you know why you should pray and the types of prayers, the next step is to know how. Traditionally called The Lord’s Prayer, this lesson covers the model for prayer given by Jesus in Matthew, chapter 6.
After we address the Father as representatives of Jesus, and we understand His character through His names, this teaching takes us through the rest of Jesus’ instructions for how to pray for provision, forgiveness, and temptation.
Kim dives into the power of your prayers and prayer as a lifestyle. With examples from Elijah, she asks the question, “Who is waiting for the power that is coming out of your mouth in prayer?”
Gwen finishes out the series with the prayers of Jesus as examples to us and how to use our worries as fuel to fashion them into prayers that shift the atmosphere.
There are so many distractions in your every day life. Their purpose is to divert your attention, to trip you up, and to keep you from getting to your eternal destination. Hebrews 12: 1-2 in the New King James Version says, “…let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith…” The Finish-Line series will give you insight on how to run fueled by a vision of eternity.
The foundation is laid for the entire series: the faith life requires commitment, you need training to run the race, discipline helps you stay the course, and vision is seeing the end from the beginning.
God’s eternal vision for the believer is kingship. We examine His mission and vision statements from scripture and ask, “What are you dominating?”
We are all gold medalists in an endurance race. This week, we discuss the training, coaching, mentorship, and teaching that we get from the Word of God.
Beginning with the end in mind requires that you know how to deal with the in-between–the time, trials, and growth from where you are now to God’s eternal vision for your life. It requires discipline to stay on course.
Jeremiah 31: 3 The Message, “God told them, ‘I’ve never quit loving you and never will. Expect love, love, and more love!” The King James says, “I have loved you with an everlasting love.” You look everywhere for love, but it’s impossible to find it without God. Since He is love, He is the only source of it. He is the only true example of it. He has gone to great lengths to help you understand how He feels about you. The “uni-verse” is one song playing over and over until you hear it. Ephesians 2: 10 says you are his “poem”. He has even left you love notes.
It’s easy to look for love in all the wrong places–especially if you don’t understand God’s love. We start the Love Notes Series learning about God’s passionate love for us.
This week, we examine our response to God’s love and the command to love God with all of your heart, soul, and mind. We take a turn that will really help you.
We finish how we are to love God, and we go on to help you recognize and overcome self hatred. If you’re going to love others, you have to start with yourself.
We couldn’t do a series on love and not talk about 1 Corinthians 13. We end with a discussion of how to love others with evidence and answers from the word of God for solving relationship problems.
In John 14: 12, 16 New King James Version, Jesus said, “…he who believes in me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do…I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper…” The God At Work series focuses on the work of the Holy Spirit in the life of the believer, and how he provides the power, the revelation, and the direction for fulfilling your life’s work in the earth.

In this episode, we cover the role of the Holy Spirit for Jesus, the believer, and the world with an introduction to How He Works.
We review the roles of the Holy Spirit and why we need Him to serve us in those roles, and then we finish our discussion of How He Works.
You are going to be inspired by the works of the apostles after Jesus left and the Holy Spirit was poured out. There was a marked difference in them.
We finish with the work you have been called to do. God had a plan before you were placed in your mother’s womb, and the Holy Spirit is with you to guide you into it.

The Lord's in Trouble
Trouble is a part of life–whether we bring it on ourselves or it’s thrust upon us. The beautiful thing about it is that Psalms 91: 15 says, “When he calls on me, I will answer; I will be with him in trouble and rescue him and honor him.” In this series, we define trouble, show you how to deal with it, break down the rewards of trouble, and clarify its purpose. You will learn how to find the blessing and access your strength in the middle of troubling situations.
In Part 1 of The Lord’s in Trouble, we define trouble in all its forms, the three types, how to deal with it, and the rewards.
In Part 2 of The Lord’s in Trouble, we review the types of trouble and then dive into the purpose of trouble with examples from the Word of God.
