The Power of God's Names

by Dr. Tony Evans

By studying and understanding the characteristics of God as revealed through His names, you will be better equipped to face hardship and victory, loss and provision, and all of the challenges life throws at you. ... Tony Evans shows that it's through the names of God that the nature of God is revealed to us.

Read through the Bible

This group is reading through the Bible in one year. We read a few chapters each day for six days a week and reflect and study on the seventh day. Each Sunday we meet to discuss what we have learned and studied. At the end of the year you will have read the entire Bible and completed 52 deeper studies about ideas, stories or topics that have significance to you.

In Person & ZOOM


The resurrection is the most important moment in history, but it is more than an event we remember on Easter Sunday. Join pastor J.D. Greear as he takes a deeper look at Jesus’s life, death, and resurrection in the Gospel of Matthew, revealing the ways we should see ourselves in Jesus’s story.

Joshua Bible Study Promo_edited.jpg
The Book of Joshua


Journey with us on Wednesday nights as we study the book of Joshua. We learn from a fearful new leader and God’s covenant people stumbling to trust and follow God. Learning to live in faithful obedience to God while remembering God’s promises are true.
