A Secret that Can Change Your Life, Part 1, The Good Life  

Who doesn't love being pampered with gifts and services by others? We all love it when things are given to us or when we can afford to treat ourselves. It's part of the American Dream, and the Bible even tells us the created order was given to us to delight in. But is there something even better than receiving, even better than accumulating more?

Scripture presents an alternative to receiving that not only increases our contentment level, but is far more life-giving. And it's one of the best kept secrets that can actually change your life. In this message, Pete Briscoe takes you to Acts 20:28-35 and Philippians 2:1-7 to share what that secret is and how you can step into this incredible aspect of the Christian life.

What Are You Eating?, The Good Life  

You know that feeling after you've stuffed yourself with junk food? The idea of junk food might seem attractive at first, but you quickly realize how bad it makes you feel. Spiritual “junk food” can have the same effect. You can spend hours consumed with things that are only robbing you of joy and energy.

In this message, Pete Briscoe shares how God has a feast of good food prepared for you—food that will transform and nourish your soul—and where to find it. If you're willing to leave the junk food behind there's joy, peace, and personal spiritual growth waiting for you.

Chasing the American Dream, Part 2, The Good Life  

Go to college, get a good job, buy a car—maybe two—and a house, get married, and achieve great success. Sound familiar? It's called the American Dream, and many of us have grown up believing that achieving it is the ultimate goal in life.

In reality, the American Dream is nothing but a list of cravings with an empty promise that says, “If you get everything, you'll be happy.” It's a futile attempt to find life in lifestyle.

So what's the alternative? In this message, Pete Briscoe takes us to John 3:1-16 and shares how to stop chasing things that will never satisfy and trade in the American Dream for the real “good Life.”
