Over the past seven years, we have seen God move in the life of this church and its people. Marriages restored, families healed, and lives forever changed. Every year has been our Banner Year. One after the next. So we mark this ground and remember where we have been. We celebrate all God has done. We thank Him for His faithfulness. And we prepare for the next chapter, advancing forward with eager expectation that God has even more in store.

Red White & Blue

Pastor Steven Furtick

Everyone likes winning. It's how we're wired. No one really enjoys the Ômoral victory' that comes with a loss. But many of us have a misunderstanding of what it means to really win. What does victory look like in our daily lives? And is winning even the point? In the first part of our series Banner Years, Pastor Steven gives a new perspective on victory by teaching us where it must begin.

Now, Then & Forever

Pastor Steven Furtick

As Christians, we can easily misinterpret our obedience to God. Often times we see our obedience as a favor we're doing for God or as collateral when we go to Him bargaining for blessings. But God's favor doesn't work that way. We can't predict the time and place of His provision in our lives. Or that it will even look the way we thought it would. But in part two of our Banner Years series, Pastor Steven teaches us a new perspective on obedience, and what God wants do in our lives, if only we can make room for Him.

Box Score

Pastor Steven Furtick

No matter who you are or where you're from, we have at least one thing in common: we were born naked and we will die empty handed. That's a harsh truth for many of us to swallow. Especially when we begin to accumulate successes or wealth or accolades. It becomes much harder for us to recognize God in the equation of our accomplishments during a banner year. And we start keeping score of the wrong game. We lose perspective on what really belongs to us. In part five of our Banner Years series, Pastor Steven teaches us that no matter how well we succeed or how great we become, it's all meaningless without the right perspective on our priorities and purpose.

Half Mast

Pastor Steven Furtick

Every week in churches around the world, the message of God's love is preached as people hear of a hope for this life found only in Christ. That is the mission. That is why we are here. But what happens when God's truths intersects real life? How well does our faith in Christ hold up in the face of real tragedy?

For part six of our Banner Years series, we heard the powerful testimony of the Laymon family. Their story of unshakeable faith in the midst of pain and loss inspired our church and reminded us all of the real reason the Church exists.

Kidney Stones

Pastor Steven Furtick

The tragic events that took place in December 2012 in Newtown, CT, shook our collective consciousness and broke the hearts of our nation. We live in a dark, sinful world. But in the face of evil, we know God's promises and Jesus' commands. We may never fully understand why things like this happen, but we do know what our response should be. In the final installment of our Banner Years series, before our church celebrated the power of Christ in our lives through worship, baptisms, and giving to the expansion of God's work through our church, Pastor Steven gave us a strong reminder of the Church's role in the face of great tragedy.
