Slow Grow

Slow Grow Is Better Than No Grow We’re in a teaching series at Skyline Church that focuses on nine characteristics that God wants to see in growing Christians. These nine characteristics in Galatians are known as the fruits of the spirit. Notice the metaphor “fruit.” The original audience of the Apostle Paul’s writing was an agricultural community.

10 Minute Prayer Challenge

Everywhere we look, it seems the world is hurting. It’s difficult not to get emotionally exhausted when we look at everything that is going on. Our feelings can get the best of us. Our emotions can get out of control. However, when our emotions are under control, they are a powerful weapon against discouragement, depression, […] Read More

Mental Help

Cultivating a Healthy Mind Mental health is a very important topic that must be talked about in the church. I know it’s a touchy subject but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t talk about it. If the Bible talks about it, you can bet Skyline Church is going to talk about it! Right now, we’re in a teaching […] Read More

Beat Anxiety, Depression and Omicron

How do you beat anxiety, depression, coronavirus variants (omicron…really? come on!) and the negative news we get every day from the lamestream media? The attitude of gratitude is a powerful pill against viruses of all kinds. Give Thanks Thanksgiving is more than a one-time holiday during the year. Biblically, we’re to give thanks consistently to […] Read More

Inconsistency

Inconsistency is one of the most frustrating things about people and life in general. I was driving on the freeway the other day and I was behind a car in the fast lane (surprisingly it was not a Prius) that had no one in front of them and was going 75mph or so. This was […] Read More

Who Are The 144,000?

There’s a lot of confusion, symbolism, and even chronology in the book of Revelation. If you’ve been in church very long, you probably haven’t heard a message on this book of the Bible. It’s a difficult subject that if not approached systematically can lead to more confusion than understanding.Over the past couple months, I’ve been going through […] Read More

Pastor, OPEN YOUR CHURCH

I want to say with a loving heart … there are a lot of pastors right now that are not opening their churches due to COVID. I want to encourage you to open your church! Almost eight months is long enough to be closed. It’s the responsibility of shepherds to take care of the flock. […] Read More

Praying Politics

As Bible believing Christians, we believe in the importance of voting. We knooow politics-everyone-off. But the 2020 elections are quickly approaching, and as a pastor, my goal is to make sure you have the information you need to make the most informed decision you can. As Christians we can’t bury our heads in the sand […] Read More

Curious About Signs of The Times?

I’m not going to get dramatic and act as if the sky is falling … but with all that’s going on in the world, many Christians are curious if these are the “signs” the Bible talks about when it describes the End Times. According to Matthew 24:6-8, the increase in wars, natural disasters, increase in anger […] Read More

Growing in Faith

Faith is SO important that Hebrews tells us it’s impossible to please God without it. But be encouraged because faith takes time to develop and God wants us to grow in our faith.  The Bible is clear that planning and preparing is wise, but there will come a time when you have planned all you can, prepared all you […] Read More

Church is ESSENTIAL

If you’ve been to any of the Skyline Church campuses, you’ve probably heard me recite our purpose statement, “Helping people find and follow Jesus seven days a week.” That’s because the pastors, staff, volunteers, and members believe that the idea of “faith” is more than a weekly check mark on our to-do lists. We believe that following Jesus isn’t just […] Read More

Misery is Optional

We need to realize that suffering is unavoidable. In fact, we need to be prepared to suffer. While it’s true that suffering is unavoidable, misery is optional. We don’t have to be miserable when we suffer, it’s all in how we choose to see things. Since the day you said that you’re a Christian, you were put […] Read More

It’s The End of the World as We Know It (and I feel fine)

The great theologians, REM, penned the line which I borrowed for today’s blog (you’re singing it in your head now aren’t you?). This weekend at Skyline Church we’re beginning a brand-new teaching series. We’re talking about a very relevant subject. Many people are wondering what the Bible says about the End of the World.   Questions abound […] Read More

Interested or Committed?

What are you expecting God to do in your life? There’s a law that God has established … I call it “the law of expectation.” The fact is, we tend to get what we “expect” out of life. We often see what we expect to see, hear what we expect to hear, feel the way […] Read More
