To explore the answer to this, we have a very special message from one of Pastor Brian Cromer’s Pastors, Pastor Robert Morris of Gateway Church in Dallas, Texas.

bad days, build your life, eternal, house, on the rock, storms
The best life we could ever live is found through Jesus, but Jesus never said we won’t have bad days. It’s so important to understand this, because if we believe the lie that "life will be trouble free with Jesus", bad days could crush our faith. Listen as Pastor Brian talks about how to build our lives in preparation for inevitable storms, and the peace and strength that only Jesus can offer.

During week one, Pastor Brian discusses not only why we forgive, but how we forgive.

Happy Easter, from Queen City Church! This week, we are looking at the last “Jesus In His Own Words” statement. If you are experiencing anything causing doubt or discouragement, understand those feelings are a very normal part of life. But it doesn’t end there! Jesus wants us to bring all of our worries and cares to him so we can live a life of true freedom. As we celebrate Easter this year, let’s remember that Jesus calls us to not just celebrate resurrection, but experience it personally!
