“Many of us have been left stranded with an incoherent concept of God. We learned about God at about the same time we learned about Santa Claus. But while our understanding of the Santa Clause phenomenon evolved and matured, our theology remained somewhat infantile. Not surprisingly, when we attained intellectual maturity many of us rejected the God we had inherited and denied that he existed.”
-Karen Armstrong The Case For God
Our INHERITED versions of god
“The somebody told me so god.”
“The Bible tells me so Jesus”
“Christianity began with a horrible thing happening to a really good person”
Our INHERITED version of god
“The somebody told me so god.”
“The Bible tells me so Jesus”
“Christianity doesn’t exist because of the the Bible, The Bible exists because of Christianity
Something remarkable happened
Skeptical people saw it first hand
Then endured the unthinkable to tell us about it
What version of God did they believe in?
The come and see for yourself Jesus:
“You can belong before you believe
The unconditionally loving Jesus:
The unexplainably resurrected Jesus:
"Jesus didn't die to make us good, he died to make us new."

None of us can do it [ALL], but TOGETHER [ALL] of us can do so much. That's why giving is something we value at NorthRock. It's a individual decision to contribute to God's great purpose of telling the world about Christ. That's what "BEING THE CHURCH" is all about. We GIVE, we GATHER, we SERVE, and we SHOW the world around us the hope we have in Jesus. When we [ALL] do a little, God does so much. [Acts 2:44]
