Church: The Good, the Bad, and the Beautiful

June 30, 2021 | Jake Each

What comes to mind when you hear someone say “church”? We all have had experiences that shape our attitude and influence our perspective, whether they are joyful, tearful, or somewhere in between. But beyond our personal experience, do we really know what God’s intention is for the church? Do we understand its design and objectives? In order to endure the certain struggles of being part of the church body, we must have a clear vision of God’s great purpose for the church.

The Christian and Unity

July 27, 2020 | Jake Each

Tensions are high, divisions are sharp. Black, white, republican, democrat. We can seem hopelessly lost in problems that seem too big and complex for any real change. But, a lot of people doing the little things make a big difference. I believe the power of simple godliness lived out in the everyday lives of Christians can have a profound impact on a community. As one of your pastors, I want to share five simple, underwhelming personal practices for fostering unity that, if embraced by the people of Veritas, would send forth cultural ripples.

The Church and Unity

July 22, 2020 | Jake Each

Diversity is such a beautiful picture of God’s kingdom. In my life, I have tremendously benefited from being a part of different Christian communities. In college at Arizona State, I was a member of a predominately African American church in Phoenix. While at Moody Bible Institute in Chicago, I was a part of a Korean church. I’ve pastored in a church in small town, rural Iowa and in a church in the very affluent East Valley outside of Phoenix. All of those experiences have been wonderfully shaping in my life. A fuller expression of God’s diverse kingdom is good for our discipleship.

June 15, 2020 | Matthew Morken

Confession is rooted in the Gospel. The definition of confession can be broken into two parts. The first half of the definition is “admission, especially of guilt or sin”. The second part states that “to confess” can mean to agree, to promise, or to admit something.

Baptisms | A Live Documentary About a Victorious Hero

November 11, 2019 | Michael Rhodes

We have had the privilege of regularly watching live ‘documentaries’ about a triumphant hero who is victorious over death and brings others into new life with him. Those live films are called baptisms. They are real stories of crossing over from death to life. They are real people who want others to know about the victory they have experienced in Jesus.

Discipleship in Everything

October 23, 2018 | Ian Crosby

Make disciples who shape our community. That sentence is our mission. That sentence is our goal. That sentence is what drives us as a church. And that sentence is what should drive us as individuals.

Example of Discipleship

September 4, 2018 | Matt Thede

Men are not known for having lots of guy friends where they can have deep conversations about life. It just doesn't come naturally to us. I had reached a point where I was tired of not having a group of guys to talk about things that just didn't seem comfortable or fitting in a co-ed connection group.
