    November 17, 2014 — Chip Ingram

    God is looking for ordinary people like you and me to accomplish great things in our lives beyond our wildest dreams. He’s calling each one of us to have holy ambition -- to attempt what seems impossible, maybe even ridiculous, and “outside the box” for God’s glory.

  • How to Keep Pressing Ahead in the Face of Adversity

    October 27, 2014 — Chip Ingram

    There are times in our life when we get to the point that we say, “I can’t take it any more. I quit! I’ve had it!” Maybe you or someone you know is at this point.

    October 08, 2014 — Chip Ingram

    Have you ever wondered whatever happened to right and wrong? I believe the real question behind what is right and what is wrong is: “What is true?” If you can’t define what’s true, then you can’t determine the difference between right and wrong.

    September 19, 2014 — Chip Ingram

    If there’s one thing we all have in common, it’s that we all want to change for the better. I don’t know many parents that say, “I really want to strive to be the worst parent,” or couples who say to one another, “Let’s allow our marriage to crumble.” And rarely – if ever – will you hear anyone say, “My resolution this year is to gain a lot of weight and eat as unhealthy as possible!”

    Do you struggle with doubt in an area of your life? Maybe you doubt your financial future or the future of our country. Or maybe you’re struggling in your marriage or with a child and you really doubt that God is going to come through for you.

  • The Truth about Sex

    August 11, 2014 — Chip Ingram

    Never in the history of the world has a culture shifted its values concerning sexuality as rapidly or drastically as it has in America in the last 50 years.

    I remember when my wife and I were expecting our first son together. There were complications with the labor and I was really scared. For 27 hours I had a lot of time to think about all the dreams I had for that little boy. Deep inside I was grieving what I might lose. When he was finally born, I had such a sense of gratitude!

  • Why We Believe the Bible Is God's Word

    June 22, 2014 — Chip Ingram

    When I was 18 years old, I read the Bible for the first time. Shortly after, I came to know Christ and began to spend time in the Bible every day so I could grow spiritually and get connected to Him. I never thought to question the Bible until later in college when I had some people challenge me about the intellectual basis of my faith.
