The Secret to Being a World Changer: Wholehearted Dedication

11/19/2020
When the battery in our phone is running low, what do we do? We turn off any app or option that isn’t necessary, anything that will deplete that precious power. Well, that’s a good strategy to follow as we serve the Lord. Is there anything siphoning off energy that could be used for God? Maybe we should shut it down. Today on A New Beginning, Pastor Greg Laurie helps us dedicate ourselves wholeheartedly to the task of serving the Lord with all we’ve got. We’ll learn how to be World Changers....

Of Whom the World Was Not Worthy: God's Appointments

It’s a good idea to look after our own health, but ultimately God decides when our time is up. Today on A New Beginning, Pastor Greg Laurie shows us God not only appoints our days, He appoints those tasks He wants us to do while we’re here. View and...

Today on A New Beginning, Pastor Greg Laurie shows the example of a man who drew on God’s strength and provision to accomplish an impossible feat.

In contrast, the other principal character was a man of power and prestige. Everyone needs Jesus. In the first movement we see Jesus has power over nature as He calmed...

Someone has said if God was small enough for our minds to comprehend, He wouldn’t be big enough to handle our problems. Thankfully, God has never encountered a challenge He found “challenging.” And on A New Beginning, Pastor Greg Laurie brings us to a moment in the Old Testament when the Israelites faced a problem they couldn’t handle.
